Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen
Good... but wow, those are a lot of stars
I enjoyed the game, however I don't understand the 5 star rating. The combination of real actors and computer generated graphics was odd. Most of the graphics were good, realistic, but the HO scenes were terrible! There were only a handful that weren't completely washed out. The map was very helpful in determining the next task, an ability to jump from scene to scene would have been helpful though. The storyline was exceptional for an HO/adventure game, I highly recommend it for that alone.

Two Things Drove Me Crazy
Loved everything about this game except for two things. Yes, the graphics were great, sound effects were perfect, voice overs were well done, puzzles were super challenging and the story line kept me interested.
HOWEVER, I found two issues with the game that bothered me the entire time I played. First, there was no transport map. Yes, there was a map but it didn't allow me to jump to the area I wanted to visit. I still had to run back and forth many, many times to get to the same places over and over again.
The other bothersome issue was that the Inventory didn't lock and was extremely sensitive. Every time I got anywhere near it, the stupid thing kept popping up and down. I would attempt to back out of a location and the Inventory bar would pop up instead. It was very distracting and frustrating.
Others may not find these two points as negatives, but to me, they brought down my rating of the game.

Got tired of it real fast !
Did not like the live characters, I liked the puzzles, but it never took me in. I got really bored.

Sorry guys, I found it tiring and boring
I could not focus on the game, because of the graphics.... I thought they were tiring.
The story line was ok. But the most annoying thing of all was that there was a map that you could only see things and not interact. For example I had to go back 4 or 5 screens just to complete a scene, or use the annoying slow elevator...
Why not make a interactive map where someone would just click and be on the next screen?

Major Snoozefest without Popcorn
I bought this game based on everyone else's reviews but boy, was I disappointed. I played the game in expert level without hints and was still mind numbingly bored. The cutscenes are amateurish and flat, the story line left me uninterested and the games were very easy. The graphics, though clear, were basically a mishmash of greens and browns with a little yellow thrown in. I get that it's a theater, but the lack of color bored me to the point that I couldn't wait for the game to end. I like a game like Phantasmat, Enigmatis or the Shadow Wolf series. Those games make you feel as if you are living the game. I like drama for goodness' sake, and I expected to find it in Final Cut because of it's theater setting.......but all it did was put me to sleep. I wish I hadn't spent the money!

Very Boring after a While
The Story line was ok, sort of, but then it had you running in sooooo many circles each time to go to a place you could uncover something useful...I felt it got REALLY tedious.
I am not into spending all my time with my mouse (I get hand cramps) going back and forth ad nauseum, just to find one thing you need to progress in the game....becames boring.

I didn't like this game at all. I was so bored with it that I ended up using hints over and over just to finish it.
