Some good adventure titles for you UK buyers like Agatha Christie, Safecracker, Egypt Collector's Edition, Jules Verne Collector's Edition, and the New World (aka Beyond Atlantis 2) in the Atlantis Collector's Edition. Though there is an older box with both Beyond Atlantis 1 & 2; whilst the Evolution game (which isn't included in that older box) got pretty bad reviews. Don't just shoo these titles away! However if you only like the puzzle genre then Safecracker is a strong recommendation for you.

I imported the Murder on the Orient express, it will be cool for europeans to be able to finally purchase it on their home soil.

Btw Lifesigns is a trauma center type game. But with a more soap opera storyline. Neighbors from Hell depending upon the port or changes could be worthwhile if they put it at budget price. Also remember the DS is region free so import these two games if they aren't brought to the states.
