Final Cut: The True Escapade Collector's Edition 3.5 5 35 35
Nice game! Based on Demo. Directors have been trying to film "The Great Escapade" for decades but death keeps happening on the set so it got shut down 20 years ago. Your brother is starring in this one & you are hired as well. This is your brother's big break, or looks that way until the first death, which looks like your brother did it, followed by a kidnapping so the villain can get his grubby hands on the negative of what has already been shot. The "Final Cut" games just keep getting better. Visuals are crisp with lots of art deco, VO's are OK, but they don't impact the game IMO, and there is lots to do. There are 40 film strips to find, 13 morphing objects, my favorite, and souvenirs to find. I don't know how many because I never found one. For some of the HO's you need to find a number of some object, like stars or musical notes. When all are found, an object is revealed that opens another circle with a list of items to find, 3 of this, 1 of that, etc. Other HO's are straight lists. This game is never boring or predictable. You have a film viewer and when you find slides, you must go to the location shown and find 6 differences. As I said, lots to do. The puzzles are different and challenging, always a plus. There is a jump map, too, which is always a plus. If you play in Casual or Custom, the map may show you where you need to go to do something & the hint will also pop open a picture of where you need to be, and it will take you there, too. A definite buy for me! November 22, 2014
At Last! I've been waiting for a smart, compelling game for awhile and this is it. The kind of game where, three minutes into the demo you're telling yourself "It's a buy". It's got all the usual things the better games have-hints, levels of difficulties, etc., but more, it has a storyline that's cohesive and actually interesting. An old studio (great retro graphics, btw) has a series of accidents on set, leading to the deaths of actors and crew. You get to develop film as part of the detective work you're doing and the puzzles are unusual, with HOP's few and far between. You have too much to do to be doing HOP's! November 22, 2014
A PLOT WITHIN A PLOT....and just plain EXCELLENT!!! Once again the Final Cut series pays homage to old Hollywood with The True Escapade. With it's unique art deco sets, a design style asssociated with the 1930s, FC continues it's fabulous tradition of highlighting this glamorous era, it's iconic films and birth of film traditions still known today... seen a movie poster lately?? In this installment, we are cut away from Morton Wolfe and his rather interesting children for the first time in the series and into Wolfe Studios doomed productions of The True Escapade. Like all of the classic Hollywood films of that era, it all starts at the beginning with a bit actress named Jane and her father the screenwriter.of The True Escapade. Little did he know, however, that Jane would become the first victim of the film's "curse". Perhaps the most striking tribute to the golden era of Hollywood comes from the game's self-referential plot in that it is a "who-dun-it" storyline about an old Hollywood script and the mysterious and "accidental" deaths that plague the film's multiple production. To this end, we have a special feature by way of a fixed plus item; the original script of True Escapade and the pages you will find within the game where changes have been made. This feature drives the storyline as you start putting the mystery and the murder'ers together (yes, of course there's a twist). The mini-games were equally wonderful and "cinematic". My favorite was the "take cover" game from the bullets being shot at you fthat actually gives you the feeling of going head to head with one of the resident sociopaths. The HOS were absolutely brilliant combining a great variety of HO styles seen the best rated games list on Big Fish (and that's good because there's a lot of them),... morphing objects included. . My favorite was the task of finding hidden objects within the HOS in order to open the hidden object list... (see what I mean by the self-referential theme) and to my delight the opening of each list just kept getting more and more creative. An alternative method to collect items is also offered by way of a match 3 game with icons endemic to the film industry such as film reels, projectors, clap-boards, etc... Each map scene also has film strips that must be found for an achievement. And keeping with the self-referential theme, you will come across the EIPEX name in a variety of settings as well as old movie posters of other EIPEX games (smile) which was very cool as well as a great advertising strategy in film tradition. The CE has a great bonus game, "the making" of FC, collectables in each scene, an opportunity to improve your score on all the HOS, and play the match 3 option that you may not have gotten to if your preference is to stick to the HOS (like me). You can also replay any of your favorite mini-games as well. But honesty compels also compels me to add that as a film buff and fan of EIPEX productions, I bought the game sight unseen before reviews were available because I KNEW it would be good... and I was very glad for it. Congratulations to the EIPEX team and Big Fish games on the latest fabulous installment of the Final Cut Series. November 24, 2014
Another Great Game In This Series ... Great Graphics, Sounds, Voice & Video Bits ... Another Great Game In This Series And I Hope There Are More To Come ... Some Neat Ideas In The HOGS ... The Bonus Chapter Is Worth Having To Finalise This Episode, So Grab Yours When It''s On Special ... November 22, 2014
Love the Final Cut Series! I love this series and this version does not disappoint! It has everything I want in a game, from interesting HOS to morphing objects, a custom difficulty level, voice overs, great graphics, and a truly interesting story. Bravo developers! Thank you. I for one am sick of fairies, cute animal helpers, and all the other childish creations that seem to be so popular right now. I have been praying for a good murder mystery, and along comes another Final Cut. Yes! November 24, 2014
OSCAR WORTHY FOR BEST GAME BASED ON 1930'S FILMS With popcorn in hand, I will take a seat, purchase, and enjoy this game. I love this historic film noir delight set in the 1930's. I am always amazed at the brilliance of the dev is game development. The storyline is excellent and the dialogue is as well. It is truly a suspenseful game. Truly one of the best (and to "moi", they are the best) on this site. The imagery in this game is historically accurate in portraying Hollywood in the 1930's. Below is the outline for the game: LEVELS: Casual (Sparkles) Expert (Sparkles) (Insane - slow hints and skips) and ABILITY TO CUSTOMIZE THE GAME LENGTH: Should be able to be played in about 5 to 6 hours. GRAPHICS : The characters are realistic but the scenes themselves are set in muted tones, adding a nice "art deco " touch. HOP SCENES: Brilliantly designed and puzzle-like as usual for this dev. Multiple variations of HOP scenes within each HOP scene itself and puzzle-like. Lists of items, search for a number of specific items were in the demo. You can play a Match Game in lieu of the HOP scene. PUZZLES: Various degrees of difficulty, None terribly difficult. There is viewfinder to locate items within scenes. "Blinking lights" puzzles, maze puzzles were the ones I played in the demo. INVENTORY: It is interactive and puzzle-like EXTRA GOODIES: Morphing objects in HOP scenes 19 Achievements. Collect 40 film rolls. Collect souvenirs. MAP: Provided at the beginning of the game as a "Golden Globe." November 22, 2014
Wolf Studios strikes again! This is the fourth Final Cut and they all take place at Wolf Studios where murder and mayhem abound! This time you are the assistant director helping your director brother shoot a movie that already has 5 deaths connected to previous attempts to make the movie. Your fianc Rubin plays the villain, who shoots the hero Brian -- unfortunately with real bullets. So Brian dies and his wife Melanie and Rubin are kidnapped. It is up to you to save them by finding the original film and giving it to the kidnapper. This developer always has lots of CE Bling. Besides the normal stuff, you have the Souvenir Room, the Making of, 40 film strips to collect, plus a Match 3 game. There are morphing objects in the HOPs - because it is an achievement, not because I found any. The film strip collectibles have an icon on the screen - very helpful. There are four modes of play, including custom. The teleporting map has activities marked. There is also a film slide viewer, that you use in rooms where the slide was taken, to find details that are different. The HOPs are not too hard, but multi-level. The mini-games are OK, but not necessarily on topic for the game. I played for 81 minutes, and just when I thought I was delivering the film to the kidnapper, he/she says it is only half of the film so you only get one hostage back! So I have to buy this game to save the other hostage! Try it and see for yourself. November 22, 2014
Relaxing, Fun, Challenging! After purchasing and playing all the Final Cut sequels, yet, another sequel makes it's way to BFG and, again, to this gamer's attention. Somehow, some way, EIPIX Developers find a way to keep the games fun, interesting and challenging. Particularly like having the option to re-enter the various scenes after main game is finished to find collectibles I may have missed as well as to search for souvenirs and again admire the brilliant artwork without having to re-play the entire game. The Bonus Game in The True Escapade was creative and very well done. Have to hand it to these talented and brilliant developers who can make even the "Credits" interesting and fun to read! Enjoy! -Mama Mia- December 14, 2014
#4 and still #1 with this series I am impressed. It's hard to keep a series going that is awesome and Final Cut has done it. My attention was captivated by the plot. I wanted more and got it. I can't wait to see what happens in the next one! February 8, 2016
A Killer Movie How many people have to die before calling this movie a wash? True Escapades has returned to production once again, each time someone ends up dead! Brian Garcia is this cursed film's latest victim, seems that gun prop was real with real bullets, did Ruben know the bullets were real? Someone want's this production scrapped badly, a ransom note has been found with an ultimatum, bring the original film to studio 6's rooftop or Ruben and Brian's wife will die! Just what is so important about this old film and why are people associated with the film dying? The storyline is just okay, a bit too old fashioned and predictable. I consider myself to be pretty observant, but did anyone else see any Morphing Objects anywhere? I certainly didn't , and the extras claim that there are indeed morphs, so either they are some of the best morphs out there, or they simply aren't offered in the demo, or perhaps I wasn't interested enough in the story to pay attention. There are plus sign indicators on some of the inventory items that require you to interact with the item before using, and they have equipped us with an old school slide projector viewer. Whenever the viewer icon begins to shake, that's an indication that you can put any slide that you have come across into the viewer and use the viewer in that same scene in the form of spot the difference, with a difference! There is a slider button at the top which you slide to the right and left of the current scene, and click on any item that is different than the original scene. (okay, that's kinda cool) There are 40 collectible film strips, one in each scene, and they are well blended into the background, so kudos on that as well. The Hidden Object Scenes were too scarce in my opinion, and a tad bit mundane, first you find 5 musical notes which will unlock that window to expose a key which is used to open up the next window with list finds, then you find 5 stars to unlock the next window which exposes a knife which unlocks the next list find, I'm bored just writing about it! The mini games were okay, but way too easy, however I would rather they be easy that frustratingly impossible. Most games were tiles that you swap to create a complete picture, or use arrows to roll a ball toward the hole of a labyrinth maze and the easiest game was sliding tokens through a simplistic maze to place on top of symbols located along the maze so that the token and symbol create the same symbol shown on the diagram. This Collectors Edition claims to have Morphing Objects, 40 hidden Film Strips (what happened to the clapboards?) Match 3 games, 18 replayable HOS and 17 replayable Puzzles, 19 Achievements, a Souvenir Room (only available in full version) Movies, Music, Making of (only available in full version) Snap Shots and Wallpapers, Pictures, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter. This game will surely delight diehard Final Cut fans, but I personally wasn't over the top thrilled, mostly because of the story, but the dialog was poor at times and the acting wasn't that great either. Enjoy! November 24, 2014
