Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen
Review of Finished Game
I loved playing this game and I wish I had gotten the CE because I want to keep playing! The SE is good on its own, you have tons of achievements to get, and cards and photographs to collect. The HO scenes were hard for me, but I didn't mind. There were a lot of them, some replayed, but they weren't back to back. The puzzles weren't that hard, but I liked them, there were a lot of them, they were pretty, and they fit well into the storyline. This game has an actual plot that makes sense and the things you do make sense. That really made the game for me. There is a wonderful diary with 4 different sections, including a map that lets you know where something needs to be done. It doesn't transport but I never minded walking through the beautiful mansion and interesting movie studio, because I knew where I needed to go do something. This game has a very 'period' feel and played very smoothly. This is one of the very few games that I will play again. I highly recommend it.

Very enjoyable game!
What an excellent game, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely graphics and interesting storyline.
I played in the hardest mode. The HOs weren't too many (thank goodness) and it was possible to complete them fairly easily - I enjoyed the interctive parts of them too.
I liked the achievements which rewarded me every so often - for instance completing HOs in a quick time or for doing all the puzzles with no hint.
There was lots to explore and I enjoyed the encounters with the 'real' but rather odd people. The map was useful in indicating where there was an objective to be completed. I used it a fair bit to get my bearings as there were a lot of rooms and quite a bit of travelling about to be done.
Music was fine, I didn't have to turn it down as it didn't annoy. It changed appropriately with the scenes.
Just a very tiny niggle - I would have liked a few more seconds at the end of each puzzle to study the end result properly as sometimes I was taken from the puzzle a bt abruptly.

Loved many things about this game. I had gotten bored with "Hidden Object" games, but this has many other gaming aspects to it as well as a decent story line and story action. Game required a lot of moving from one scene to another and requires some memory unless you wish to continually consult your diary. Great fun. Looks like they left themselves an opening for a squeal. Hope that gets here soon. I would definitely but it.

Excellent HOG Adventure Game
This is the first game I've played by this developer, and they did not let me down. Sharp, clear graphics, professional voice-overs, well-developed storyline, and challenging but not impossible puzzles. Two modes allow the player to choose the difficulty level. I played using the advanced mode, and only had to refer to the strategy guide a couple of times, mostly because I wasn't paying attention rather than the action required not making any logical sense.
The time period of this story is not often done in other games, so it was a refreshing change of pace. The developers did a good job of creating the time period with the right decor, colors, and artistry.
The music was very well done--not intrusive nor repetitious, and it added to the atmosphere of the game overall.
The HO scenes were well done--clear and well-sized. I very much enjoyed the balance of HO scenes with the puzzles--just the right amount to keep from getting bored with too many HO scenes.
The puzzles were challenging but not impossible--just the right level of difficulty. I also enjoyed the inventiveness; there were many new types that I had never done before rather than the standards that are found in every other HOG adventure game.
Finally, the extra game play was a nice length--roughly an hour. I liked that it was not necessary to purchase the CE in order to find out the ending of the story. The story ended in such a way that those who don't want to purchase the CE will still be satisfied with the ending of the game.
This is one of the better HOG Adventure games I've played lately. Definitely worth the money to check out.

An amazingly fun game
This is one of the better games my wife and I have played recently. The story line was intriguing, and being able to visit the different movie sets was fun. The graphics were nice and crisp, and the cut away scenes were done nice as well. We played in expert mode, and never had to use hints. Well done HOS, and the mini-games range from easy to difficult. Look forward to playing more games from this company.

The Monster Movie
Successful even though it is not full and that game is not there large,on screen function can adjust voice,two game modes are available,the characters are half real,half drawn,the game is in the art deco style with beautiful colors and beautiful light,the graphics are beautiful,the scenery is magnificent,the music is very good and suited the game.
I love the animations,when you click on the correct object in a hidden object scene and it disintegrates or the noise made by an object when it is found in the inventory.
This is a neat and interesting game that involves lots of places,exciting gameplay that included research on a number of maps,pictures,lamps and lighting a " mystery " trophy to find.Il not all obvious to find but it is a lot more than I enjoy,many trophies to win and some are easy to get,the longer it takes to replay the game while keeping the same profile to be others.
The hidden object scenes are great,not difficult,they are not crowded,objects are made there is a good interactivity.
Numerous mini-games are waiting for you and there is something for everyone,really varied difficulty we find the " usual " and other truly only,well designed,many have really enjoyed it.
A visually pleasing interface which includes a complete log with the objectives,notes the father of the character,a lot of information and materials on the puzzles and among other a card that is not interactive,it indicates the place where an action is to be accomplished,the map also shows the playing time,that's fine.
For players who are not interested in the collector,they will find their account in this standard edition since the developer was kind enough to include trophies as well as maps, photos ... find.
Have fun with it !

Just 1 complaint!
Loved this game...played both the casual and expert mode!
Great puzzles, good HO's, and the adventure was pretty comprehensive...my only complaint is the point-and-click doesn't always work. I love games w/ achievements offered, but if you can't pick something up when you're pointing right at the object, it's impossible to win the achievements! Oh well!!
Have fun gaming!
