Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death Collector's Edition
I don't give games 5 stars.....only three so far. This was awesome! BUT, the bonus chapter had nothing to do with the original story. So, I would skip the CE and definitely buy the SE. 2014

Best HOG in a loooong time!
I don't leave many reviews, but I had to for this game! I loved it! The story, the HO scenes (variety!), morphing objects well done and not a distraction, graphics, music and puzzles... all great. Nice achievements, again not a distraction but fun to get and makes you want to replay to get them all. I highly recommend this game.

The best so far!!
I stopped bothering to review games as I found some so disappointing. This one, however, is my favourite right now - even though I'm only halfway through the main game!
I love the music, love the variety of challenges and, at long last, a proper story.
I got so fed up with the stories set hundreds of years in the past so it was great to be in 1930s Mardi Gras and actually think I may be in a detective mystery!
Worth every penny!!

Best Game of 2014 Award
I am still reeling over this game. Its a long game too. There is so much to do, I never once got bored, every scene is different, there are NO repeat HOG scenes. Every puzzle and scene are totally unique. You would think they worked on this game for years and years. I cant believe all of the extras too. I spent a whole day just on that.
Music and scenery will take you to New Orleans, to Mardi gras, There were scenes so beautiful in this game I just sat and stared at them. You just want to walk through the computer screen. This is a 10 star game, but since 5 is all we can do.....I had a lot of fun on the extras too after playing the main game. You need to pay attention to the story line cause you'll need that info in the bonus area, ohhh what fun.
There are lots of things to collect and I missed some of the morphing objects they are only located in the hidden object scenes so watch out for that, you have the strategy guide with the CE so you can look and see where they are. Also you collect music notes watch you dont miss those at all cause you need those for something really special in the bonus area. This is one of those collector edition games that you really MUST buy the CE. You would miss a ton if you didn't. This game should be a winner in the 2014 Best Game Awards. Buy it now!

How can you not like this game?
If you are a HOG fan I don't understand how you can not like this game. It's new and refreshing and I hope more games go in this direction. I like going from place to place on the map. Not a lot of back and forth. If you find an object you don't have to go searching through scenes to figure out where it goes. I actually like the music and kept it on for the duration of the game. The story line is good. All around loved it. 165 reviewers proves it's good. I rarely review games but once I saw that some gave it 1 star I had to stand up and let my opinion be heard.

Fantastic game. I am taking my time enjoying the music, the graphics, the variety of IHOG's and puzzles. Thank you, thank you for a game with African American characters and storyline. I'm so tired of the usual evil monsters and princess searching for her prince stories. More like this please.

I've just started playing but the graphics, story and music (of course) are extraordinary.

Best game in ages, although the HOPs were a little mean! I loved the soundtracks, New Orleans jazz setting, game was excellent! SO many extras! Will play again. Loved it!

Refreshingly different and fun!
This is actually my first review of a game here. I just had to share my thoughts on this one. I loved everything about this game. The storyline was engrossing, and it was so different from what I have been playing--the New Orleans jazz angle. I LOVED the different styles of games and HO scenes. It was so much fun to play. Please make more like this!!
