The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life Collector's Edition is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from On the trial as catchy as the first one, hope it will be catchy after I love these new or not types of HOP games from MadHead [fright chaser, Gehena Tower or Paranormal files] or Eipix. They are very catchy. No fairy tales, no artefact, no ghosts, no puppets, no magic glasses, no purple colors, no demons, no red eyes. This game is scriped as a movie, love the graphics, love the story, love the SciFi and suspense. Maybe the puzzles are too easy and the HO too, but the story is truly fine and interesting and full o surprises. Hi, mister Pigs. I found the story really interesting, so ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great story and game play Late to the party but simply must add my 5 stars to this terrific game. Eipix has proven it can provide so much more than eye candy graphics and run of the mill entertainment. Thoroughly enjoyed the HO scenes and even some of the puzzles. The adventure part of the game kept moving with tasks that were fun to complete. Excellent story telling and as long as Eipix produces Anderson Accounts of this caliber I will continue to happily purchase! Great bonus game, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Pleasant Surprise When I had an opportunity to play the Beta for this, I was not thrilled with the beginning, and remembered I hadn't loved the first one in the series. Fortunately, I read some positive reviews for this, and purchased it hoping it would improve as the game went on. It certainly did! I believe it's 75% better than the first one and although I haven't finished the game as yet, I'm interested in what happens next, and if the marked and unmarked will ever come to terms, and will the villain finally get his comeuppance. It's easy to play, direction is clear, puzzles are varied. I love the game and recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sequel in the series If you liked the first Anderson Accounts, you'll like this one. Excellent blend of horror and adventure elements in a mystery game. I liked it better than the first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Atmosphere But Short You'll have to like dystopian urban scenes to like this one, but I found the atmosphere intriguing. It is Pinocchio reworked in a modern, cyber-punk setting with enough humanity in it to save it from being too dark. Pros: the settings are convincing, nothing too artificial, just gritty enough to be credible. This is not a nice place and nice people do not control it, but the equally gritty good guys get their licks in nonetheless. Main game POV is male, bonus game is female, which is a nice touch. Cons: it's a short game, with a very straightforward objective, (on the good side, it doesn't concern saving the entire world from something for a change). Dialogue is good, delivery isn't, always. Graphics are a little soft but imaginative. Overall, a solid four stars in my book, and a bit of a sleeper. I'd purchase the SE in a heartbeat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SUPER POWERED CRIMINALS? Entire Game? Of Course! Cecil Hogg has been convicted and awaits transportation to the prison he'll soon call home. Meanwhile, Bay City is in turmoil resulting from the tattoo's Cecil unlawfully inked upon those with special abilities. Those who hid in the shadows, those who went unnoticed, those who weren't identifiable until forced to bear the Mark. Chris Andersen helped to put Cecil behind bars, but Chris is no ordinary man, for he too bears the Mark of disgrace, and now someone wants him dead! Like the city itself, Chris must go head-to-head with his enemies of Super-powered criminals! Did anybody else get a case of Deja-Vu while playing this game? (title, tattoo, turning to wood, puppet) Apparently, I must be the world's slowest player( ?!?) but I actually liked this game more than the first one. Mainly because the first game offered so little to do in each scene, which only had 1-2 areas of interest available. Although it's still based upon a fairy tale rendition, this game is a little more realistic and doesn't rely so heavily on fictitious characters. In this CE version, each scene has a hidden Can of Spraypaint but they are so large and obvious I wondered why they even bothered? The Hidden Object Scenes quite frankly were located in uninteresting scenes, lacked detail, clarity, and color. Most of them consisted of a mixture of different types of HO styles or paned from one location to another. Throughout the game, there are Interactive List Finds, Keywords in Sentence Finds, Progressive Interactive Silhouetted Shape Finds, Combination Sketch Finds (A+B=?) Pictured Item Finds, Multiple Object Finds and Uncovering Matching or Related Pair Finds. There is a Morphing Object located in each HO scene, and you can re-play the HO scenes in the Extra's Menu to pick up any missed Morph as well as earn Gold, Silver, and Bronze Trophies and improve Accuracy. There are a few Mini-Games that I really enjoyed playing but most of them are easily solved on the first attempt. One of the reason's I deducted a Star was Below are breif descriptions of some of the games that I really enjoyed: *Place 4 image sections in the center by toggling tokens in a "Blocks" variation. *Use directional arrows to slide token to each point the correct number of times indicated. *Connect the dots to replicate the pattern after the reference disappears. *Match the images with the correct corresponding statements. *Place caps onto the path to avoid landing on police cars. (Fox=1, Pig=2, Pinocchio=3, Cat-4 spaces) *Move tokens to recreate the image shown in an "Untangle the Ropes" variation. The Bonus Chapter takes place the morning after the Main Game, you won't play as Chris, but any more information will give away the plot of the main game. It is an okay length consisting of about 9 pages on the Strategy Guide which is longer than any of the 5 chapters within the main game. There are 3 Hidden Object Scenes and 3 Mini-Games in the BC and you will pick up the remaining 7 Spray Paint Cans and 3 Hidden Object Scene Morphs. This Collector's Edition version has 8 Wallpapers, 7 Character Concept Art Picture Pages, 9 Music Soundtracks, 9 Movie Video Cutscenes, 19 re-playable Mini-Games, 15 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, 12 Achievements to Earn, 35 Collectible not-so-hidden Signs (spray cans of paint, very large) 15 Hidden Object Scene Morphing Objects, 17 Souvenirs in the Souvenir Room, 5 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a built-in Strategy Guide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Andersen Account I first played it on a trial. . and then I went right to BF and bought it! Was great fun, and had a little something different from the norm. Not sure why others have rated it so low, but I loved it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Christian Andersen and the Foxy Heroes It's not lovely or nice but dirty and gritty. This is the second in the series with chapter one being the first. Magical tattoos give special abilities and Chris has them in spades. Collect 35 spray cans and morphs in the hops,15. The hops are multi-layered but sometime it's hard to know which layer has the morph. The mini-games were challenging enough for me. The bonus chapter is the next day. It has Katt, the foxy heroes and Captain Snuggles the cat. It has a puzzle I didn't know what to do with and the guide didn't help. It was navigating through the ventilation puzzle. I actually like things different from what I'm living but I don't like dirty or down and out. That's not my dream game. That is why I didn't love it. Replay 9 videos, 15 hops, 19 mini-games and 9 music. Has 8 wallpapers and a Souvenir room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PINOCCHIO WITH AN URBAN FLAIR REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME: 5 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 42 Pages OVERVIEW: Detective Chris Andersen is back on the case! Return to Bay City where tensions are rising between the Marked and Unmarked people. While riding on a subway, a touch by a stranger has caused Andersen to slowly transform into wood. The stranger involved wants justice. Is this stranger out for revenge against the detective? Be prepared to enter the seamier side of the city and deal with a band of criminals engaged in a devious plot. Aiding Andersen again in his investigation will be the power of his tattoo, which allows him to view scenes in a different perspective. Also adding her skills is his girlfriend, Rachel. Can you stop a group of criminals before they cause more havoc for the city? OPINION: I found this game much better than the first one in the series. Loosely based upon the tale of Pinocchio, the storyline is excellent with a plot which takes some twists and turns along the way. The demo does not go into much detail concerning the plot behind this game. The game is much better after the demo. I found the pace excellent with plenty of activities to keep the player engaged. In a turnaround for EIPIX, I found the HOP scenes much better designed than the puzzles. The scenes are very creative. I am disappointed in the puzzles. Usually EIPIX provides more challenging puzzles within their games. The puzzles are easy – too easy for my taste. This is a great game for those who like easy breezy games. There is not much challenge within this game. It seems as if this game was designed with younger players in mind. MECHANICS: There are four (4) levels of play including a customized version. There are twelve (12) achievements. Collect thirty-five (35) aerosol cans. Also collect (15) morphing objects within the HOP scenes. All are easy to locate. Many practically jump out at you! You can replay nineteen (19) puzzles and fifteen (15) HOP scenes. There are eight (8) wallpapers along with concept art, music, and video sequences. There is a souvenir room to place the seventeen (17) souvenirs you collect at the end of the game. BONUS CHAPTER: It is a sequel. Play Katt who is locked within Rat Tower by an evildoer. Help her plot her escape from this building so she can join her friend to start a new life away from Bay City. It is a decent length for a bonus chapter. There are three (3) puzzles and four (4) HOP scenes within this chapter. After being disappointed in the puzzles from the main game, I found the puzzles more challenging in this chapter. You continue to collect the collectibles and morphing objects within this chapter. HOP SCENES: There are twenty (20) HOP scenes within the game. Most will have some type of morphing object within the scene. They are creatively designed. Most of the scenes are multiple step ones in which the player searches for items in two or more different formats. There is a wide variety of scenes as well including lists of items, silhouette, matching, and rebus clues. My favorite scene is one in which the player matches striped umbrellas and then searches for items from a list, all while pushing the umbrellas aside to locate them. PUZZLES: There are twenty-six (26) puzzles within the game. Although most are easy, there are a few moderately difficult puzzles (mainly in the bonus chapter). It astounds me what EIPIX considers a “puzzle” as differentiated from activities within the game they do not consider “puzzles”. Some of the activities in the game are more difficult than their “puzzles.” There is one designated “puzzle” in which you place three (3) cat-shaped pieces into a grid to complete a jigsaw puzzle. To me, this is NOT a puzzle. CONFUSING DIRECTIONS! Once more, I found the directions confusing for some of the puzzles. More clarification is needed. There is one in which you must track a guide marker through a ventilation system. I could not figure out exactly what to do with that marker. Finally, I just gave up and skipped the puzzle. Upon skipping the puzzle, I was able to figure out what I was supposed to do by watching the solution. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE PUZZLES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Jigsaw puzzle. Place 3 cat-shaped pieces into a grid to complete a puzzle. B. Lock puzzle. Move a metal plate with a path grooved upon it around a button until the plate is removed. C. Paint-by-number. In this case, paid a fox mask according to a given diagram. D. Connection puzzle. Place dolls on a map so that every path is covered within the sight of all the dolls. E. Map/Sequence puzzle. Place a series of tokens on a path so they lead from the beginning to the end avoiding police cars on the path. Each token moves a specific number of moves. Place them in a specific order to reach the end. F. Matching puzzle. On a grid, match up statements with the proper pictures to represent the given statement. G. Car chase! Follow a car while avoiding other cars within your path. H. Climb up a rope while avoiding obstacles in your path. Use arrow to maneuver left, right, and up. BONUS CHAPTER I. Card puzzle. Blackjack! Place cards onto a table so that each row and column of 4 cards equals 21. J. Pipe puzzle. Arrange pipes so that marbles can exit.
