Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen
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!

Everything I love
What a beautiful, thematic game about old cinema, mixed with astrology, and a world from a long gone era. Loved the art deco buildings, autos, and rooms. Enjoyed the abandoned movie sets to explore, and the interesting things to find and do (clicking on the cat in rapid succession for some meow rapping), and the story. The game moves along at a good pace, with a good balance of 'do now' and 'do later', and offers just enough support in expert mode for when you are stuck. I enjoyed referring to the manual for clues now and then - often they don't offer anything except a rehash of what you already know, but for this game I searched the manual as part of my play and found it had what I needed. I do wish now that I bought the CE because this is my favourite type of game and I loved playing it. However I was completely satisfied with the gameplay of the SE version, and am not partial to games running overly long anyway. I even enjoyed the actress who played the 'sister' and her crazy eyes, especially at the end. Fun, engrossing, great game!

Amazing all around!! We need more games like this!
Have only felt compelled to write 1 review before. This game deserves lots of kudos. LOVED the story line (I'm so tired of vampire, werewolf, & fairy tale stories), visuals and graphics, different settings to explore, etc, etc etc. Wish there were many more like this!

Interesting, different and challenging.
This was a very fun game. It was different than the norm. We loved the graphics and the genre and would love to see more like it.

This is by far one of the best hidden objects games I have played! The graphics are amazing, great story line, and a lot of fun. I also liked that it's a longer game. Some of these HO games are way too short. Definitely would recommend this game!

Fabulous Art Deco set
I spent way too much time just looking around at the Art Deco set. It really is astounding -- and it sets the tone and atmosphere for the game. Also fun for fans of classic movies and the days of Hollywood stars. I played in the "Casual" mode, and really appreciated the hints; they provided just the right amount of guidance. The map was also useful; it's a fairly large complex of buildings, so I quickly learned to check the map to avoid a lot of unnecessary backtracking. Nice mix of different types of puzzles. The ending is rather abrupt, which is par for the course on these games.

One of the best!
I'm generally not a fan of HO games but they are OK if there's enough puzzles and adventure. This one is a nice mix of both. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the HOS were really easy. I didn't use a hint on any of them. There was always a couple objects that required some action to find. There were a LOT of puzzles and they were challenging and fun. I played in "expert" mode but I took my time and was able to solve all of them without a skip. I liked the fact that you had a book with your current objectives and a map to help you find your way around. There's also an "achievements" section that was fun to track how well you did in various aspects of the game. This game took me a long time to play--over 7-1/2 hours #the map keeps track of playing time# and there were a lot of different kinds of scenes #think different movie sets# that kept it interesting.

Excellent SE Game - Lots of Game Play
I played a trial of the CE of this game and then purchased the SE. This is a long game with some very interesting puzzles and challenges. The Hint key provides sufficient information to move forward if you get stuck, so no use of a walkthrough is necessary. The HO games were fun, especially those that required you to pair two objects together. I would have given this game a 5 except that there was so much movement back and forth between rooms. This is not a problem if you play the game in one sitting, but if you leave the game and come back, it is hard to remember where all of the puzzles and pieces are located. It's a great game for practicing your memory skills, though. Overall a very enjoyable game.
