Final Cut: Encore Collector's Edition
Final Cut: Encore CE
This game is based on the 60 min trial.
Although this game is supposedly a sequel, I did not get that feeling. I reviewed the first game, saying it was one of the best at BFG. I wish I could say the same for this game.
I think that it is a bit disjointed and unrealistic. To me, the storyline just did not make sense, even for sake of a sequel.
The objectives were clear, but some of the objects we needed to find to achieve the objective were not. It isn't just thinking 'outside the box', advice I often give in my reviews, but a couple of the objects needed to complete a task just had me sitting back and going 'huh?' when a more obvious and logical object although in my inventory, would not work.
I think that maybe a little tweaking, very little, really, would make me up the stars on this. Although abstract is what keeps many games from being boring, being abstract to the point of silliness makes what could be a 4 or 5 star game only a three star game.
If I get this game, it will be because I have 3 game credits and do not want to purchase any other CE's with those credits.

Based on full gameplay
Haven't played the first one, but understood the story pretty quickly. I'm a fan of digital scenery and cinematics.. didn't like the idea of real people being in them.. but i understand it's their "thing", not mine. The story overall has no originality whatsoever. The eding is pretty regular, no spins no nothing. really boring. Getting to the end i was hoping to finish the game already.

Final Cut Encore CE
It seems that most of the developers of the games lately think that they have to fill the game w/ hordes of cut scenes and way too much dialogue.
The game is too slow moving and boring.
What's the deal lately?

not what I expected
I didn't find this game visually appealing, nor did I find it interesting or exciting. Maybe it got better later in the game, but for me, based on the demo, I won't buy it.

Very strange game and graphics not on the level

Just OK (that's being generous)
I really didn't care for this game. It is very different than the first one. The graphics were grainy and drab. There are a few colorful scenes but that's it. The storyline is military based and I didn't care for that. And the hype about Linda escaping isn't what this game is about.
There is a long playing time
Mix of HO'S and puzzles
More scenes are added through a neat trick that I won't explain but it was the best feature of the game.
I guess if you like military than you will love this game. If not, then give it a miss.

Wasn't Impressed With The 1st This Is No Better - Review Based On Demo
Story: This leaves off from the first one(Final Cut: on the Silver Screen) as this time your murderous half-sister has escaped the mental institution. Well I found this sequel story leaves much to be desired. The story is just all over the place.
3 play modes that you can switch at any time during the game. For this demo here I just played the easiest mode since the middle of the rode mode I usually play has sparkles and black bar tips. Hint and skip pretty quick on charge up.
Game play: Just like the first. While there is a transporter map, this is just a lot of tedious back/forth just for one object to finally have everything you need to complete something. Most of the time having to go back several scenes so thank goodness for the map.
HOS: There are quite a few scenes and some objects ridiculously large or some small enough to give eye strain. Some scenes the graphics OK and some grainy at least for me. If you don't feel like finding objects you can play match 3.
Puzzles: The usual run of the mill nothing new here but can be skipped and pretty quick in the easiest mode.
Graphics: Overall I thought were very flat. I've seen way better in other games.
The voices and characters OK but nothing to get excited about in my opinion. There was nothing to make me go WOW!
Overall sorry Big Fish and developer but the best I can do for this is 2 stars while yes it has the many extras like achievements and collectibles but it takes more than that for me to buy a game. I was honestly so glad for the demo time to be up on this as I just found this game boring. I won't even by this as a SE when that arrives, the $2.99 price or if I had a coupon code that was ready to expire. Yes I disliked this game that much. Definitely not the worst I've downloaded but I've downloaded much better.
As always, give it a whirl and decide for yourself. I'm sure most will enjoy this but it's a definite no go for me.

Too much going on..........
Based on the demo, this game has just too much going on. You don't have time to think cause you're always doing something stupid.
