Final Cut: Encore
Perfect balance and great story-telling
If you like movies and how they are made, you are going to love the second in the series of Final Cut. The storyline grips you from the beginning and you go right into the action. There is a decent combination of HO and puzzle games. In EASY mode, you get plenty of hints and you can even skip a puzzle if it is too difficult.
The company that creates these games know gaming really well. The images are bright and colorful and the characters are fun to watch.
Playing this game was my favorite activity over this last Holiday Season. Five stars!

Another excellent Final Cut
Let me echo the sentiments of other 5 star reviewers of Final Cut: Encore.
What I will add is this: watch the credits! They are "hysterically" funny. (Uh... maybe the projector wasn't completely destroyed!)

Even Better than the previous Final Cut
I've really liked both games so far in the "Final Cut" series, and I think "Encore" is certainly one of the most enjoyable games I've purchased. I don't really see how anyone could not think this was value for money. My only comment would be that it is not what I would really call a "fun" game .... apart from the credits which are pretty funny.

I loved it! The plot and story telling was involved. The mini-games were interesting and could be skipped. The map was interactive and outstanding. The music was perfect.
I enjoyed the first Final Cut, but this second installment took it up another notch. I am so looking forward to playing the third installment - Homage. If it is as good as this one is, I'm in for a treat. Excellent games such as this one are so few and far inbetween.

FINAL CUT : ENCORE...THREE CHEERS FOR THIS SEQUEL
I enjoyed Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen and Encore was a great sequel. The story of your half-sister continues in this game and the story ends with a triumph. (Whether it ends good or bad for your half-sister is for you to find out).
The graphics are clear, sounds and music are appropriate with the scenes. The hint button recharges fast and you can jump to where the next action needs to take place if you want. The HOS give you the option to play Mahjong or HO.
This was a fun game to play.

What A Surprise!
Look...this game is no Dire Grove, Return to Ravenhearst or Fate's Carnival but it is a small treat and in my opinion, warranted 5 stars. I was drawn by the subject matter and wasn't disappointed. Real live videos, fun puzzles and a web of interesting scenes to poke around in, kept my interest for hours. I loved it.

your sister has escaped and you go on the hunt for her with a detective and find your uncle, general lee, and he "helps" you with the hunt until you do find your sister and learn the truth. great graphics. skip/hint charge in about 30 seconds. played casual, low sound. sequel???????why not.

Boo to those who gave the 1st one away
Final Cut - Death on Silver Screen I just started playing and wanted to know what others thought of the second one (Encore), apparently they felt the need to give away the ending of the first one, WOW good job people!!!
I will still buy them both however I see no need to ruin the plot on either simply because you have already played it not everyone buys these games the day they come out!

Loved Everything About This Game.
In the previous installment of this game, Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen, your half sister, Linda, tried to kill you and your brother. Fast forward to today when your adopted "uncle" the General has come to get you and your brother because Linda has escaped from a psychiatric hospital and is planning to kill you two. He's going to take you and your brother to the base for safe keeping. Just as you reach the base a sand storm comes up and the scenery changes and you see a desert with camels! The car crashes just outside the base gates and the mystery begins. First of all there aren't any people around and so ....
I finished the SE of the game in custom mode so the hint and skip buttons recharged very quickly. This game was lots of fun to play. It has all the latest in modern game development. The visuals are just wonderful -- just like a real movie with nice art deco style furnishings. The music is pleasant and well suited for the game. The voice overs are superb! It's really like watching a movie.
The HOS are standard lists and the objects are very easy to find.
The puzzles range from very easy to hard. Of course there is a skip button.
There is a map and in the casual and custom mode scenes are highlighted where there is something to do. It also transports you to the scene.
The hint button works outside the HOS by either giving you an arrow direction or pointing to the object in the current scene.
Play the demo to make up your mind. This game is very suitable for all. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it.
