Clue Classic is a computer version of the Hasbro board game of the same name, made by GamesCafe.com and published by RealArcade. The game is basically a recreation of the classic board game Clue, originally released in 1949. Since then, the game has been featured in movies, novels and interactive CDs. Now it is the PC's turn. The game models the board game entirely. You are also introduced to an animated board and cut-scenes that will help you to get in an investigative mood. Once you select the players that you will be up against, you are dealt with some cards and the game begins. If you never really played Clue before, the game is a basic guessing/card elimination game. You stroll over some rooms getting clues which are just eliminating other players cards. Once you eliminated enough cards you can guess which cards are in the confidential folder, thus solving the mystery. The main drawback of the game is the same as of the board game. The actions can get repetitive. Everything else is superb, from the cut-scenes, to the AI and the whole game presentation. This game is very recommendable for board game fans and clue fans alike.
