Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen
I really enjoyed this game and the animations/graphics within. I thought the plot was good, creepy sometimes and I liked exploring the house. There were lots of collectibles to find although I didn't find them all and wonder if there are more to find in the bonus chapter if I had bought the CE although Im glad I didn't. There was a sufficient ending in the SE and although I enjoyed the game I didn't need anymore.
This is the first game that I've finished in 2 days. It moved at a pace where I wanted to keep playing as I was engrossed with it. The live bits in the game were really well done although the voiceovers could have used some improvement.
The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because of technical things. In hardcore mode, there were sparkles to locate hidden objects and black bar tips. Also, the plot made me a little crazy because I felt it revealed what was going on and who did it a little too fast. It would have built more suspense for me to explore more and see more and wonder more of what happened then to be told and then be under ransom. It took away from the suspensefulness of the story but overall it was very enjoyable. xx

I had gotten this awhile back. It's of good guilty ,sound and the story line is OK. I played on all the levels and the challenges are what I expected.

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.

Enjoyed playing most of the game. Toward the end of the story line it seem to lacked the same level of difficultly it had in the beginning of the game. Wished there was a little more of a challenge to the mini-games. If you are an intermediate H.O./Adventure player this game is not a serious challenge. But all-in-all game play was entertaining and I did not regret the purchase.

It was ok
I thought the story line was just ok and usually I love lots of puzzles, but I found that I was getting sick of doing a puzzle everytime I wanted to move somewhere. Hidden objects were too easy for my liking. I played MCF: Dire Grove before this game and that was so good I think this one had too much to live up to.

Best game in a long time!
Has everything that I love in a HOG/Adventure game. Worth every penny.

Good story & graphics
I enjoyed this game, it looks good and is fun to do with lots of going here and there. The mini puzzles are interesting and fairly challenging as are the HO scenes. My biggest issue with this game is the amount of time it took to complete - too short, I'm not the quickest gamer but I completed this in a fairly short time, just over 2 hours, which does not make it a good buy for me.
