Off the Record: The Italian Affair Collector's Edition is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spend the day in Venice - Well crafted adventure - You are pulled in as soon as you arrive in this fast paced mystery of abduction and revenge I loved the artwork and the wonderful soundtrack - Meet all the character - Enjoy the seaside locales - Explore the opulent labyrinth beneath the Venetian streets - Uncover the mystery - Good mix of challenging, fun puzzles and HO games This was so much fun I found the SE to be as delightful as the CE so if you are on a budget the SE is satisfying. I even enjoyed reading the credits...great pictures of the cast and crew of the show - including their baby pictures...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfetto! Bellissimo gioco! Perfect, beautiful game. I purchased this last night 2/9/2016 and finished it today! It's the first game in a very long time that I didn't want to stop playing. I loved the scenery, the music, the fun games, the multi step hidden object scenes, having characters to interact with throughout the game. Everything about it was just perfect to me!! The cherry on top of the cake was being in Italy for a few hours. The only negative I would say was that the bonus game felt a little short. You do get to replay game, Hidden object scenes and you can go back and find anything you missed so your trophy room will be full! Bravo Eipix on a most entertaining game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of "THE BEST" Games I have Ever Played This game is so well made and entertaining beyond words. Eipix is one of my favorite game studios. The art work, the music, videos and the extras they include with the CE additions of their games is magnificent. I am drawn into all their games the instant they start. I love the fact that in this game they let you see behind the scenes of the people in the studio that made this wonderful game possible. I will tell you that the games they create are logical and believable and the characters are fully developed. The mystery behind the story lines keep you guessing right to the end. The achievements are great fun with morphing objects, hidden foxes, tapes to find and collect, and more. At the end of the game if you have not found everything this game allows you to go back to the trophy room and click on what you are missing and takes you to the scenes you missed and allows you to find them. I don't usually listen to the sound tracks of most games because they are so repetitive they become annoying. The sounds and music in this game are varied and enhance the gaming experience. I would listen to the music and at times found it to be hypnotic. The HOPS were interactive and different, the games were not only fun but challenging and yet very doable. Sometimes when you play games they go on and on and when this game came to a close I was sad to see the end because I had so much fun. Please try this game I am sure you will love it. I have been a Big Fish member for years and own lots of their games and this one is one of great entertainment and beauty. This game is a MASTERPIECE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who is the real thief? You're on vacation in Italy when your editor tells you to go to Venice to cover the theft of an artifact from a museum by "La Volpe," an infamous thief. When you get there, he comes to you and claims his innocence. Your notoriety from Linden Shades has caught his attention and he looks to you to find out who is stealing under his name. Is he being framed, or is it part of a plan to help him get away with it? Now you must travel across Venice uncovering secret clues he has left you and work with a detective to try to find the truth behind the theft. But who can you trust? Could someone who is helping you be the real thief or are they wanting to help clear La Volpe's name? Love the graphics and how they use real people in their cutscenes. Voice overs are excellent and it's great having the dialogue on the bottom of the screen so you can just read and move on without hearing the whole conversation, but when voice overs are done as well as they have been here, why would you want to skip them. HO scenes were traditional with some of them changing locations as you complete them, preventing you from being able to easily random click and complete them. Love the CE achievements you could get, with the hidden letters, foxes, tourist pages and morphing objects in each location. Definitely was a great added challenge and the different achievements you could get motivated you to complete HO scenes and mini games quickly and efficiently. The bonus chapter at the end didn't add much to the story but it was interesting that there was more going on than what had been thought. Fun game, the added bonuses are worth getting the CE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Detective Adventure I've enjoyed solving all tasks and problems as a detective. It was very exciting to collect hidden objects on every scene and many of them were very well hidden. Game play was more than fun. All scenes look so great, beautiful and colourful, it felt like I was really in Italy. All except a truck in the middle of Venice, that kind of killed the immersion for a second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll go on the record: I liked this game I just finished the collector's version, and I must say that I enjoyed it. I do have a number of games from this developer, and they always seem to deliver a good product. I never play in the most difficult mode, so I can't say anything about that. The music was okay (I don't notice it). The scenes in this game are all bright and colorful, which I appreciate, because I was able to clearly see even the small items. No gross stuff in this game. When finished with the bonus game, I was able to go back and pick up the collectibles which I missed on the first round, and also all the souvenirs. There are morphing objects, but I forgot to watch for most of them, so I'll have to play again! I recommend this game; try it and see for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FOR THE COLLECTOR SUMMARY: A fun game with lovely scenery, wonderful sounds, silhouette HOS, puzzles and mini-games of varying degrees of difficulty, and a LOT of collectibles in the CE. STORY: LaVolpe (the "fox") is a modern-day Robin Hood, reported to have stolen the Marco Polo relic from the Venice Museum. You play as a journalist who goes to Venice to uncover the true story. PLAY DEVELOPMENT: As you begin to explore Venice for evidence of the Fox, you encounter LaVolpe. He tells you he retired 5 years ago, but he still gives as much as he can to the unfortunates. However, his ex-partner (beautiful Gabrielle) is framing him for the theft. He needs you to help clear his game, but instead of being straightforward, he will only give you clues to find her. So lucky-you takes off for Venice. You encounter a HOS (silhouettes and interactive) and puzzles / mini-games (of varying degrees of difficulty) along the way. The ratio is largely in favor of the puzzles and mini-games. HOS are clearly defined and not very crowded. Puzzles are interesting and require the use of items you will find in the mini-games, HOS and lying around. ARTISTRY AND SOUNDS: Graphics are beautiful but occasionally could be more detailed. They reflect the beauty of Venice. Sounds are awesome - hear the water trickling, bells tinkling, et al. Very real sounding. Voice overs are pretty good (if you're looking lip syncs, don't unless you happen to speak the right language - the developers wouldn't change the lip movements just because they release in various languages). OTHER STUFF: There are 4 modes of difficulty, including one which you can customize. Dialogue is spoken and written. You also take pictures after you focus your camera. CE EXTRAS FOR THE COLLECTOR: There are a lot of collectibles: 36 souvenirs, 52 fox figurines, 16 letters, 8 audio tapes, 22 pictures and 10 travel guide pages. There are also achievements and morphing objects. So if you are a collector, this can be heaven!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A phenomenal adventure and virtual tour of Venice! A very delightful experience! I have had the tour of my life! I actually felt like I was riding in the Gondola! My review is based on the completed CE version. This game is virtually beautiful in every way. Great storyline, magnificent graphics, a variety of HOGs, VOS awesome, game flow is excellent! Great cutscenes! What can I tell you! I respect and understand the reviewers who weren't too pleased with this game, but for me, it rocks! Load and loads of tasks to complete. An ingenious game that kept me engrossed the whole time. I didn't get bored once. That's saying something! The music, though repetitious, was lovely. After you complete the game, check out the extras and you will be able to download any of the music segments with titles. I particularly liked the one entitled, Discovery, which had somewhat of a brief Bond flavor. I also encourage you to read the credits after you complete the entire game. The EIPIX developers really outdid themselves on this one. It seems to me they really enjoy what they do. Very talented bunch! I found 41 of the 52 foxes, and most of the souvenirs and the letters, but in the extras you can finish what you missed. I played this in expert mode and did skip a few puzzles but you must be patient with some of them. Some tasks were easy and some were challenging. Great map, hint button and strategy guide if you needed it. I had a mop in my inventory for a while and thought, I'll probably be using it for some kind of spill. Nope! Butter knife was not for buttering your toast either. That may seem elementary but it was fun nevertheless. Bravo to the developers. This Italian-American thoroughly enjoyed the game and highly recommends the CE version to all.
