Customer Reviews
Dead Reckoning: Death Between the Lines Collector's Edition is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the Good Old Days Thank you, Eipix, for giving us a game that matches the quality of some of your best games from before!! It has the graphics, the music, not too much conversation or interaction with characters, HOPs and puzzles that are varied and not too simplistic or tough, morphs that can be tricky to spot and an interactive map. What struck me as soon as I got into the first scenes was the great atmosphere! Eipix has a knack for giving me the feeling like I'm entering a room that someone just left...there is still some of their energy left, along with the edge of not knowing who they were or what they were up to. It has been missing in quite a few of their recent games, so I was very pleased to get back into that mysterious type of setting. I would have preferred more morphs!! Eipix used to do lots of morphs and now they seem to use very few. That was one of the things that sold me on their earlier games, and on them as a developer. While there was interaction with characters, and some 'search for evidence on the person' scenes, it was kept to a comfortable level without having to do a bunch of multiple choice responses, and they provided skip options most of the time. There was a lot of back and forth, but the interactive map takes care of having to retrace steps -- although there may well be players who enjoy figuring it all out with no assistance. Overall I was very pleased to slip into the Eipix aura again. Keep it up, Eipix!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If it were a book, it would be hard to put down. This was my first foray into the Dead Reckoning series, and I didn't know what to expect. But the mystery sucked me in almost from the first, and kept me guessing right up until the reveal. I really got a kick out of the way Eipix presented several of their games as novel series authored by different characters. You play as Ms. Douglas, the author of the Dead Reckoning series, and you're competing with the authors of four other popular series for the chance to write the biography of a famous millionaire. But when murder interrupts the proceedings, you start to realize that nothing is quite what it seems. I'm going to have to look into the earlier games in this series, because this one was just that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tongue-in-cheek! I loved it! The story was engaging, and visuals was beautiful as usual I enjoyed how Eipix made fun of themselves

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eipix Devs, I knew you had it in you! I just knew it! Way to go! Devs, Applaud! Applaud! Applaud! You finally came up with the right strategy, game flow, and near perfect logic. I knew you could do it! I knew you had it in you all the time; and yes, I have been hard on you because I knew you could do so much better, but there was always something lacking in your previous games. But you came through this time with flying colors! Your desktop palette--tablet, diary, inventory section--hint button, guide, etc., is very colorful and well-organized. Everything is neatly in place. The story is exceptionally, well-written, and suspenseful; the puzzles and mini-games are strategically sound and challenging and amazing; the graphics are off the charts, voiceovers are fantastic. There are loads and loads of things to do that my head is still swimming! I'm nearing the end of the Main Game of this CE version and I'm anxious to find out who the murderer is. The suspense is killing me!!! I'm looking forward to playing the Bonus Game, too. I don't want to stop but I have to take a break and live my life! I love all the techno gadgets that are used so far in this game; innovative tasks; you have your collectibles--I haven't collected all the money yet but no matter. I'll go back if I can and comb through the scenes and that's easy to do with the great map that we have. I'm too engrossed in the storyline to worry about them right now, though. I enjoyed checking out the info on the tablet. So cool! The morphing objects in the HOPS scenes are really neat! There's so much to do! I highly recommend this game. Try it and see for yourselves. I know there are different strokes for different folks, but you may very well love this game as much as I do. Devs, again, bravo to you all! Outstanding job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic old fashioned murder Yes finally we have a good old fashioned murder adventure. And it is very good. I am SO tired of monsters, witches and evil guys with red eyes in cassocks all coming back from the dead!! so there... The storyline is excellent, gameplay good and the mystery keeps you involved throughout. Hops and puzzles engaging and I cannot recommend it enough. Others have outlined the game better than I, but as a seasoned gamer I have been enticed again.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE EPISODE OF DEAD RECKONING IS OUTSTANDING!!! Eipix achieves redemption after the 3 star flop "Snowbirds Creek" in August of 2016. Dead Reckoning: Death Between the Lines Collector's Edition is the name of this edition and it is here to rock your world! If you like the Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure games that Eipix Entertainment is famous for producing, then Dead Reckoning should be right up your alley! In this hot new game, you will be taking the role of a young engaged author of the book Dead Reckoning. After doing what seems to be just your average run of the mill book signing out on a book tour, things take a turn for the weirdness. You have been offered the opportunity of your lifetime. However, in order to actually get this opportunity, you had to beat out the country’s other 4 top writers in a competition and everything seemed to be going well until one of the writers dropped dead all of a sudden. Now, you need to figure out why the person dropped dead and get to the bottom of the mystery before the other writers, or you, end up suffering the same fate. The writers have all written books which are also game titles; Phantasmat, Hidden Expedition, Dance Macabre, Off the Record, and your book Dead Reckoning. A mysterious stranger approaches you with a rather odd proposal: take on four of the country’s current best authors and if you can write the best out of them all, then you will win the opportunity to write the life story (biography) of famous billionaire Harridan Welles. The gameplay of Dead Reckoning: Death Between the Lines is quite extraordinary and is more than capable of keeping players hooked for hours upon hours. The hidden object scenes are top notch and are quite challenging as well due to the clever object placement. As for variety, most of the scenes are of the traditional list based type but you’ll run into a few special scenes from time to time as well that have been designed to keep things fresh and interesting. However, if you don’t feel like finding objects, you can play a bubble shooter game instead which is also quite enjoyable. Dead Reckoning: Death Between the Lines also has tons upon tons of different mini-games that’ll definitely push your puzzle solving skills to the limit. Each and every single one of the puzzles in this game is highly engaging and has a unique design so you’ll have completely fresh experience every single time you play. It’s worth mentioning that the puzzles in this particular game are significantly more difficult than those in traditional hidden object games but, thankfully, there’s a useful skip button that you can utilize whenever you can’t seem to get through a puzzle. Onto the graphics, Dead Reckoning: Death Between the Lines looks absolutely phenomenal. The game takes place in a modern setting which is definitely a fresh setting because most hidden object games tend to occur in fantasy/medieval environments. The modern day art style has been pulled off near flawlessly as the game has tons upon tons of beautiful artwork, fluid animations, solid character designs and various other amazing visual elements. If you decide and pick up this Collector’s Edition, then you are bound to find all sorts of extra treats. For example, there is a bonus chapter in which you will be able to go in there and get to the bottom of the mysterious murder case that involved your sister-in-law to be. You can also use the helpfully integrated Strategy Guide along the way if you get into a pinch. There are hidden souvenirs along the way which you can pick up during the adventure. There are some cool media downloads you can get in the Collector’s Edition and the challenging mini games are re-playable. I have a renewed love for this unique series and when all said and done, Dead Reckoning: Death Between the Lines is a captivating hidden object game that doesn’t cease to impress....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keep moving until you find the murderer Wonderful game kept me going on from one situation to another with getting confused. I was like a real detective trying to find the murderer. Most helpful was the map very clear to the point. Missed some morphing objects because I don't like to look for them in the HOP, it wastes lot of time finding them. Puzzles are wonderful. Its a buy game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eipix Fans (and others) Will Love This Game! This game is so much fun and if you like Eipix games like I do you are sure to enjoy this game. I'm amazed at how they can come up with different puzzles or variations of their other puzzles and make them fun, enjoyable but yet challenging. Love the storyline and as always great graphics and sound.
