They're starting to scratch out at any Clue variations they can create. Perhaps they're afraid we'll turn against them?

questions relating to why people tend to disagree ....

* what is wrong with the new design?
* how could the games take away from the original "clue feel?"
* what even is the "clue feel?"
* why would the new versions have a negative impact on the original game?

-It's too childish and cartoony and not in a good way. Ulike the 1963 version when the illistations were cute and campy and gave off the 60's chinsy vintige feel.

-The character's look plain dumb, and they went so PC to change the murder to theift.

-The Clue feel is that fun odd murderous atmosphere you feel when playing Clue.

-People may think this digraceing tripe is the real Clue when it isnt.

Heres a good review from Cluedofan.com

Gameplay is fast and addictive, but the simplicity of it makes one wonder if this should not be considered a "Junior" game rather than an advanced version of Clue (the fact that there are no murders in Clue Mysteries, mostly theft, support this). Although the fun of the game still resides in finding out whodunit, the game's accent on deciphering statements with ridiculous props, rather than deducing which cards are in the murder envelope or other players' hands, make this more of a race than an investigation in the Clue tradition.

The uncanny resemblance to MoOP also takes a lot from it, as the inspiration drawn from MoOp is more than just the concept. Despite similarities in idea, "The Great Museum Caper" stood alone, and apart from "Scotland Yard".

The graphic design of the game would also appeal to a younger audience, as the 1920s art-deco feel which revitalized the 2002 US Clue edition, here draws undoubtedly on the childish. One glance at Prof. Plum's purple take on the Disneyland Castle is enough to make any fan of the original game wince in pain.

Still, a palatable, if poor and forgettable outing in the Clue(do) series. [Review by Simon Laflamme]

Never played it myself, it never caught my interest. It looked a bit "cheesy".

I'm sorry but I can judge the artwork. Afterall I have seen it. The art sucks.

I'm never really got into Clue jr. in the first place.
