AGS Panel Rating

This entry in the series includes a substantial improvement to the soundtrack, a racier theme (the murder of a priest), and some great plot twists. The only drawbacks to Case 7 are the relatively short play length and an ending that will leave you demanding more!

It's Christmas Eve in Rome. What should be a joyful occasion becomes a senseless tragedy as a priest is murdered in cold blood. Back home in Philadelphia, Ben Jordan receives a phone call from the man accused of the crime, begging him to go to Rome and clear his name. Seeing this as a chance to prove his career choice to his disapproving family, Ben calls up his friends and starts another investigation. However, Ben doesn't realize that this will be the toughest case he's ever had, as many questions will be answered, and some lives will be lost...

I am not caring enough to consider doing things in the order that is numerically ruled upon to maximize my understanding of storylines, and figure that I would rather be confused and amused and oblivious than bored. Knowledge may be power but knowing everything like I do on a daily basis (thats a dry joke) can underuse the brain maybe. So this is the first BJordan Ive played.

If you are inconsiderate and want to do Ben Jordan Adventures out of order, I am sure he will not appreciate me saying this, but its just as bada** as doing it all proper as so. I loved it.

I did not mind the beginning's Looksee of two unrelated items to begin the adventure, Im a Walksee person, so I just Googled and found a no-spoilers walkthrough so I did not get in that irritated 'I hate life right now' state of mind against amazing games-games that may falter with 3% of the gameplay and it unintentionally ends up impacting the gamer 300% without a unspoilt walkthrough on getting through the game.

Cant wait to play the 3rd, then 1st, then the final game of the Ben Jordans. Good.

An immensely enjoyable game, much better than number 6 and easily in par with my two favourite games in the series so far, 3 and 4. Francisco finally gave Ben a new outfit! This is when the Ben Jordan series starts to become far more professional thanks to surprisingly great voice work; excellent music; much more serious in tone story; the overlaying arc Francisco has been promising is finally on show here. The puzzles are also cool, though there were a couple of moments that I thought degraded the experience by only a little. At the beginning of the game in order to trigger an event you have to examine two completely unrelated items in Ben's room. And perhaps my biggest gripe with the game is the box puzzle and its buttons. I did manage to figure it out, it was perhaps a little more troublesome then it should have been. But overall though, this is a well made game that has been made with care and attention. The commentary is also insightful and worth playing through the game a 2nd time to listen to. Comes highly recommended.

I liked this game, it felt more complete and serious than any previous BJ game. Soundtrack is amazing and fit corresponding scenes perfectly. Jordan's confession is a sort of little masterpiece ("i keep stealing other people things", "i want to touch other people", "i am standing long time not doing anything" rofl :) ).
However, saying truth, I found the near-final cutscene of murder rather gross.
Also, there were few moments that lack realism. For instance, when BJ is pretending to be a detective with italian name and when he plays plumber he keeps speaking english, which should look weird for people he is trying to fool.
And in general, game created more questions than answers. I am awaiting for continuation :)

I loved this game. It kinda reminded me of the old Gabriel Knight games, honestly. The voice acting was done pretty well and I was rather impressed by the graphics. About the only things I didn't like was there was a little back and forth and one pixel hunt puzzle. Beyond that, though, it was a nice, medium length adventure game.

One of the best parts!
