Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen
Fun adventure game
This is a great game, I purchased the CE and just finished it. Graphics, voice over and level of difficulty were excellent, even the credits had a spin. I would highly recommend all those adventure seekers to purchase. I will have to play this again as I could not find all of the hidden cards during the course of the journey !
I can't wait until the next one !!

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!

Great casual game-challenging enough but not frustrating

I enjoyed every minuite
I am a beginner and that level really helped me along and that made playing the game very enjoyable. Wish I could find another as much fun and enjoyable for a beginner

WOW! Excellent Game
Everything about this game was really good. The storyline down to the music. Only complaint I have is that the map doesnt move you from place to place..was lot of jumping back and forth. The puzzles were good only had to skip one. The voice overs were not muffled you could understand everything they were saying..I highly recommend this game.

Excellent game - one of my favorites!
Absolutely loved this HOPA!! It has a great balance of HOS and puzzles, beautiful graphics, and a highly engaging storyline. The cut scenes and videos blend well with game play and help to move the story along. The narration and character development are thoughtful and surprisingly nuanced for a video game. The journals and maps are artistically drawn and super-helpful because puzzles often reference clues you got a long time before, which makes the game rich and complex. The hint system is also appreciated for providing directions without spoilers.
Overall, just one of the best HOPAs I've played in a long time. The SE was a complete story with satisfactory ending, but if I'd known how much I'd like this game, I probably would have sprung for the CE just to get some extra gameplay. Highly recommend!

I played the SE. Lots and lots of fun. A little too much running around for me though. Above average graphics and VO. Great story- good wins over evil. Looking forward to the sequel.

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.

I really love these kind of games and play them frequently.
What made this one really special was the story line and the amount of puzzles and the map. The map was huge and it took a while to explore all of it. I liked the puzzle to hidden object ratio. You weren't doing a hidden object ever 3 seconds. The journal was very in depth and the story unraveled nicely.
I would recommend this game without a doubt! I was sad when it was over. I hope that they make a sequel.

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.
