Cate West: The Velvet Keys (Bigfishgames.com)

Cate West is back and this time she has to stop a murderer.  Each victim has their soul incased in a device that you have to unlock by using the Velvet Keys.

The plot is quite intriguing and makes some references to the first game as well as biblical ones.  It also tries to provide a reason for hunting objects instead of just telling you that you need to get random objects.  Some parts I don’t really understand but I can’t really say what they are without giving away spoilers.

Once again, the game play is completely repetitive.  You have to hunt down certain objects in order to form a key.  Then you have to collect objects that connect to the victim’s memories.  I will say one thing, what you do there differs in each chapter.  After that, you have to play a mini-game in order to unlock the device required for each key.

Again, the higher your score the better your ending.

It’s intriguing, but also repetitive.  I give it 6 out of 10, not a bad use of biblical references but I’ve seen better.
