Cadenza: Fame, Theft and Murder Collector's Edition is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Finally, a story line that is believable (ok, once you get over changing body thing), and consistently maintained throughout both the main story and the bonus chapter. Great music. Great visuals. Lot's of fun to play. Cadenza is a terrific series and is one of the few that incorporates people of color--wish we had more of that. After I played this I instantly bought Havana Nights which was also terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why Bother With Face Swap When A Whole Body Swap App Is Available! Guitarist, Mike Valance has returned to his hometown to perform in a rock 'n roll concert that will go down in history! As soon as the curtains are drawn, Mike is attacked by an angry deranged man, who challenges him to a duel, of guitars that is. Mike accepts Adam's challenge, and the audience gets treated to a life changing jamming session performance! Quite literally, because Adam has put a voodoo curse upon Mike, who is now Adam, and Adam is now Mike! This supernatural body snatching scenario gets even more complicated for Mike, when he discovers that Adam is a wanted man, for murder! Mike's only saving grace, comes from an unlikely source, and he only has a mere 12 hours to reverse the curse! I like the storyline Cadenza has chosen, but I'm not impressed with the graphics in the least bit, and at times the gameplay seems monotonous and tedious. The graphics were fantastic in the first Cadenza game, the graphics were sharp, crisp and colorful, and the details just popped with impressiveness. Since then, it's been downhill, and in my opinion, the graphics in this installment are as basic as it gets, there's very little detail, and the colors just don't pop. Think back with the Kiss of Death, a game that incorporated all the sights and sounds of New Orleans nightlife which completely immersed you into the adventure, this game simply doesn't do that for you. This is a good game, but it's "just another game" there's just nothing special about any of it. As far as Collector's Edition's go, this one doesn't have much to offer, other than the staple extras of achievements, concept art and wallpapers, there are only two types of collectibles, each scene has Hidden Vinyl Records and eventually you will collect Characters with bios, both are just average features. The Hidden Object Scenes aren't the same as the one's offered previously in the Cadenza series, but in this CE version, they still offer a Morphing Objects in each HOP. Most are multi-layered with Interactive List finds, Replacing items back in the scene, and Silhouetted Shape finds. Some items have puzzle fragments behind the items you find and small puzzles to solve within. The Mini Games are decent, but tend to be on the easy breezy side with little challenge. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Connect the dots to draw the shape Adam plays on the guitar, without passing the same line twice, with three different shapes total. 2) Rearrange the tiles to complete the symbol. 3) Rearrange the fins on the rocket to match the colors shown. 4) Rearrange the items so that they match the timeline written on the list. 5) Select the interactions of the strings to complete the code according to the clue shown. 6) Slide the gems and move the metal combs so the matching pair of stones are aligned vertica;;y. 7) Place the strings in the correct order according to the music Sheet. This Collector's Edition has 9 Achievements to earn, 26 Wallpapers, 16 Concept Art pictures, 13 Music Soundtracks, Character Bios, 38 Hidden Vinyl Record Albums, 34 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, a Record Hunt game, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Surprising I can be skeptical of these adventure / HO / puzzle games - same old same old. I know what I like and what I do not. This was loaded with what I love. The scenery was beautiful (stopped playing to take in the art several times). The characters were all gorgeous - men and women - and the puzzles, oh the puzzles! They were ingenious. Just when you think you know a hidden object game, the folks at Mad Head throw you a curve to keep it interesting. LOVE IT. I purchased the Collectors Edition of this game and the bonus chapter was entertaining and challenging, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hop On The Retro Bus For A Trip To The Fifties! This is right up my alley...Cadenza and Rock N' Roll ! What could be better? Maybe a hotrod time machine? I enjoyed the demo, as it moved along at a good pace and gave me a good idea of what the entire game has to offer. It really is refreshing to see a game that gets us away from the fantasy theme for a awhile. The 50s were full of cultural changes. One of the most exciting was the "sinful" music making its debut, driving teenagers crazy and parents even crazier! This Cadenza story is about Mike Valance, up and coming rock star who wants to leave his mark in the world of music. He is very popular. We begin by seeing him sign autographs before his home town concert starts. A man pushes through a crowd of screaming girls to get his autograph. That's weird!! A little later Mike is introduced to the anxious fans, but before his performance begins a weirdo jumps onto the stage and challenges him to a competition. He takes him on and during the guitar duel something very strange happens. This is where Mike's life is suddenly turned topsy-turvy! Don't want to spoil the fun for you! I think it is going to be a really fun game and so different from the other games we've had to choose from lately. I already know I will be purchasing with today's sale. The graphics are beautiful and depict the fifties very well, indeed! The colors are appropriate. Nothing here that I see as a negative. Guitar is my favorite (and Sax) when it comes to that era. I enjoyed the music a lot, although it had a little bit of a modern sound to it (to my ear) that hadn't been "created" yet. The cars, clothing, hair styles were just right. Everyone's voices were excellent. The characters were rendered wonderfully...individual characteristics, facial expressions, body movement, vocal expressions, driving, etc. Whoever is responsible did a superb job with everything IMO! It was really fun to just look at. There were morphs, collectibles, achievements and a bonus chapter. In the custom game mode you could make the games skippable or not, and bring your skip and hint reload time down to 15 seconds. I appreciate all the great choices offered in the custom mode. The games in the demo were good and did not have to skip any. The HOGs were absolutely fantastic!! They were very interactive and the items were not out of place for story's time. I truly hope the HOGs are like this throughout the entire game. Also good that it wasn't a big junk heap to rummage through. Sometimes it is so frustrating. I think this game will appeal to just about everyone. I'm looking forward to a hefty amount of fun with it. I love the 50s and the music background. In my opinion it deserves 5 stars. God Bless....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful This game is excellent, the music, the story, the voices and the graphics were perfect - no dark or gloomy scenes at all. I just couldn't stop playing it. Map - transports you quickly and is very clear. (There was no visible map in the demo, but after buying it appeared on the left of my screen). HOS - they were all interactive which included a morph in each one. Puzzles/Mini Games - not too challenging. 38 Collectibles - records with a treble clef attached, one in each scene. Achievements - there are 9 achievements with 3 levels each. Extras: Replay 17 HOS Ultimate HOS Treasure Hunt with 39 treasures to find. Characters' Biography, Music, etc. I am off to play the Bonus Chapter now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Cadenza game Finally a story line that doesn't take you to remote places in times gone by to rescue your family's fate and restore their destiny from doom and gloom. Sure, this is a far fetched story too but the game play is enjoyable although I found some puzzles hard and somewhat illogical. Not too much going back and forth which is what I personally prefer. I rarely had to use the hint button and the search scenes were just challenging enough and no itsy-bitsy objects to find. The music was quite good too as were the graphics. Possibly not for everyone as it's pretty obvious what the hard core BFG community want. I'll probably replay this and dig up the other two Cadenza games from the archives one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, A Game Worth Playing! It's been a long time since I've been excited about a game. The cookie cutter games that now dominate are painfully boring, unoriginal, and far too easy. I love this developer, but in the past I did find their games too easy as well. Some months ago I wrote them wondering if they could have a setting where you turn contextual pointers off (I only buy games with this feature so at least I'm being somewhat challenged). They wrote me a really nice personal response thanking me for my feedback. And lo, in this game you can turn off the contextual pointer! HOORAY! I have always loved this developer's stories. They are truly engaging, feature a diversity of characters, and don't involve a gloomy castle or endlessly re-visited time period. This game is set in the 50's, featuring rock and roll, and you play a male character. In the game, your body is swapped with a mysterious stranger, who you find out is a wanted murderer. A little fantastical, but a great set up to build a little tension.The challenge is still a bit easy, even with the cursor turned off, but the game is just so fun! I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absurd and Awesome! Yet another rock-star body-swapping murder mystery...wait, what? Full marks to the devs for originality. Haven't had this much pure fun in playing for quite a while. The milieu is a sort of surreal faux 50's a little reminiscent of Streets Of Fire. The characters are amusing caricatures, the voice acting is excellent, the graphics of superb quality. The plot is tongue-in-cheek over-the-top, and it really doesn't matter that the resolution makes no real sense because the player is having too much fun. Oh, yes, and Big Jim is AWESOME! Wonderful lines, wonderful voice acting. The music is equally original and there's actually some pretty nice guitar work in there that catches the tongue-in-cheek intention perfectly. You'll either love this game or hate it, and I loved it. Bonus game is a treat. It's a bit of a risk for a developer to depart from the usual cliched games and this gamble paid off in full. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LETS START ROCKIN' BEFORE THE COPS COME A KNOCKIN'! Welp, today from Mad they bring you Cadenza: Fame, Theft, and Murder. I played the survey version of the game, and this game is awesome sauce! They put a lot of work and love into this game to where 5 stars is not enough. The story, the VO's, the music and the cutscenes were extremely well done. It is a 1950's based game so naturally you have your thugs as well as your good guys. Please at least give this game a try, and I bet it'll end up in your library. ;) Story: Your playing as Mike Valance who is a well renowned guitarist. You go backstage after your gig and your confronted by a guy named Adam who starts yelling about how Mike thinks he is the best guitarist and he wants to take Mike on one on one. After the competition, that guy is outraged and switches bodies and voices with Mike. Come to find out this guy Adam is wanted by the police for murder. So now you have to lay low since your in Adam's body. Luckily an angel comes to help you and your lucky pick. And so the story continues. Music: Awesome music. This is by far to me the best music I have ever heard in a H0PA. You have rock and jazz both. Really the 50's era. Graphics: Drop dead gorgeous! I stopped to look at the scenes before going on. Crisp and clear. In H0GS no problemo! Mini games: A very nice variety of mini games. These mini games are all original and strictly for this game. H0GS: I loved them. Very interactive and fun, and these are the first H0GS where you find yourself dancing in your seat while playing them. Map: The jump map tells you everything you need to know. Hint: No need to get lost with this hint button. Tells you what you want to know. Hi Ljubica! Kudos to this team for an outstanding game! Thank you for bringing us this treat. I highly recommend this game!
