A fantastic sequel!
July 13, 2013

The first Final Cut blew me away. It was just a great game with an intriguing story, excellent puzzles, and a ton of weird/cool achievements that made each new area exciting. The art deco aesthetic was absolutely lovely. I was a little worried that this sequel would be a let down. Boy was I wrong! This game was actually better than the first. I played on expert and found it challenging but still completely absorbing. (No black bar hints which is perfect.) There are fewer H0's than the previous game which is much better. Puzzles are varied with a few unique logic-based one that were a little easy but fun. There's a really great mix of collectibles some of which aren't on every page. Scattering them around the game instead of putting all of them in every room is a lot more fun. You really have to pay attention. The art work is just as gorgeous, maybe even a bit better. There is a choice between H0's or match three which made for a nice change of pace. The last few games by this developer were a bit H0 heavy. Having an option made all the difference. The bonus game was great. A little trickier, a few better puzzles, a bizarre story. Maybe a few too many H0's but I mostly played the match 3. All in all, one of the few games that actually inspired me to write a review. There are a few small things which I would have liked - A few more unique puzzles (always want those); collectables & achievements for the bonus game, plus more of the weirder achievements from FC:1 (like turn on the lights), and cats. Needs more cats. Or maybe cat achievements. ;)

A Good Sequel - Now Where Did I Put the Iris?
July 11, 2013

It has been a year since the death of your father, the famous director and inventor, Morton Wolf, who was killed by your half-sister. We find out that Linda has escaped the mental institution where she has been committed during the past year, and is now a danger to your family. In order to protect you a close friend of your father?s, General Lee Porter, comes to visit and requests the one remaining piece of your fathers? mind control projector ? the iris. Is General Porter the man he seems to be, or is there more to his professed caring and friendship? Now it is up to you to solve the mystery in this intriguing story. Others have done a great job of listing the game?s technical aspects so I won?t go into those except to note that there are three modes of gameplay ? casual, challenging and expert. You have the option to change to a different mode of gameplay during the game by selecting the menu button. The graphics are crystal clear and excellent. I really liked the music and ambient sounds because they added a lot to the game. The game has voiceovers some of which are excellent and others just so, so. The interactive hidden object scenes (iHOS) are list type with some items requiring just minor interaction. In some recent games the HOS have become quite interactive and added a lot to the games but the ones in Final Cut Encore seem more like the older style. Even with the clear graphics, I still had a difficult time finding some items in the HOS and had to switch to the match 3 portion just to complete the scene and move forward. The puzzles are ones we have often seen so there is nothing new or too innovative in Final Cut Encore. I always have difficulty with the click a button to turn off or on all the lights type puzzles until I figure out the patterns, and these are not my favorite puzzles as I find them frustrating. That being said, thankfully there is a variety of puzzles in the game and I did enjoy most of them. There are achievements to be earned one of which is to find 37 film st

Another Cinematic Blockbuster
July 14, 2013

BASED ON DEMO The first Final Cut game was a spectacular TRIBUTE to the ART of CINEMATOGRAPHY. Despite graphics that to my eye are not as high quality, this game is NO LESS a work of art. And MORE FUN. There are more exciting things happening and lots of interesting LOCATIONS. The ARTWORK is still VERY GOOD, but it seems a little less seamless and a little more fuzzy. All of it seems to be in the right time period, and looks very AUTHENTIC. The MUSIC is DRAMATIC and can catch you unawares. It made me jump a couple of times. This game picks up the STORY a year after the events of the first. Our crazy half-sister, who tried to kill us last time, has ESCAPED from the asylum, and we can only assume we are again in danger. Luckily, Dad?s old friend the General is there to whisk us off to the safety of the nearby ARMY BASE. But really WEIRD STUFF starts happening even before we?re through the gates, and we crash just outside of them. The GENERAL is unconscious and we go off looking for help. Soon the HALLUCINATIONS that caused the accident start again. But now we discover their SOURCE. An apparently ordinary FILM PROJECTOR. If you?ve played the other game, you?ll know immediately where this is going. If not, you?ll soon catch up. I prefer the GAMEPLAY of this one over Final Cut 1. It is EASIER on the old brain cells. HO SCENES are INTERACTIVE LIST, or you can try your hand at MATCH 3 instead. All the objects are CLEAR & LARGE, and the scenes not overly cluttered. The PUZZLES so far I have found REASONABLY EASY, and include ones that I?ve seen before but only in other games by this developer. The ADVENTURE is logical, but interesting. It is made TRICKY by a wonderful trick I love to see. Remember those HALLUCINATIONS? Well, once we learn how to shut them down, we have 2 VISUAL OPTIONS for each LOCATION. The ability to use items from one to the other greatly increases the complexity (and interest) of the GAMEPLAY. COLLECTIBLES include MORPHING OBJECTS, film strips, and

Another Great Game In This Series ...
July 13, 2013

Great Graphics, Sound, Story, Effects, Movie & Cut Scenes ... Really Enjoyed The First Game And This Is An Excellent Sequel ... The Use Of The Projectors Adds Another Level Of Depth To The Game Without Losing The Original Format Of The First Game ... It Would Have Been Better If The Extra Bonus Game Could Have Been Played First As It Is A Prequel ... I Am One Of Those That Didn't Get To See The Super High Resolution ... I Got Mine For Just A Little More Than A SE Price, So Very Happy With That And The Graphics Resolution Displayed During Play; Only Leaving Me A Little Curious To See How Good It Could Have Been ...

Better than the first Final Cut! Great Game!
July 13, 2013

Really enjoyed playing this game! Loved the change in scenery with the projectors.....really made the game interesting and fun, The bonus game play was great fun due to the change in scenes and for once I actually felt this was what a true Bonus Game play SHOULD look like and be and even the length was a "bonus"! I must say that I really am enjoying the end credits with that personal touch of each of the game contributors and developers, technicians fact, I actually read all the credits because the remarks were funny and interesting. Very sneaky getting the players to feel a familiar camaraderie with the peeps who create the games, nice touch. :)

Eipix tops everything at the Moment! Fantastic game!
July 11, 2013

I thought that the last game from Eipix was the best one in 2013, but this game tops it. It's simply a perfect game for everyone that likes thrilling storys, many things to do and great graphics! The storyline is great. A General asks you to come with him, because you are in danger, but then he... I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise. But I like the way the story goes on. There are many unexpected things in it. The graphics are brilliant. Very detailed, beautiful and with a great atmosphere. The sounds and the msic is right for an adventure trip. So it's great for the game, because it is a great adventure for the payer! The HOS are easy, but more challenging than in the first Final Cut game. So the devs did a better job and I hope that they keep it on, so we may see difficould HOS soon. Also great is, that you can swich from HO to match-3 mode. The puzzles are good to. Not to difficould, for everyone. You are able to solve all of them. There are many achievements to earn and you have to find film strips and morphing objects while playing. The film strips are hidden well and the morphing objects are difficould to find. There are live actors and they are great done. Sometimes you think, that you're watching a movie, because it feels very real. Great Job! The CE has many extras, so it's worth to buy it. Afterall this game is really the best in 2013, but I think that may their next game can top it again. Great game and good for everyone to Play. The beginners have the easy mode and the advanced the challenging mode without any hints. So another masterpiece and a perfect sequel.

I Liked This Game as it Took Over from the First One.
July 13, 2013

This game was really a good game. I liked where it left off from the first Final cut: Death on the Silver Screen. If you didn't play the first game you need to do that first before playing this one. That way you will understand the game better. I also liked when I went to the Extra's that they had in there another small bonus game of who actually wrote these games. After you play this very small bonus of giving him some coffee he tells you about them making the Final Cut 3 that will be coming soon. I can not wait until I play that one. In the 3rd chapter of Final Cut I bet that Linda is going to be up to something in that game, but I guess we will see when it comes to us to play. So please play the first Final Cut then the second one then we will all be surprised on the 3rd one.

My favorite of the year!

I don't normally weigh in on the games that are garnering great reviews, saving my comments for those that I think are under-appreciated. But WOW -- this game is REALLY WELL DONE! The graphics and animation are amazing. I was impressed with "Chinese Healer" and I think the visual quality on this one surpasses even that. And the voiceovers are some of the best I've heard in a HO/Adventure game. I don't think you will be disappointed. I played the game in "Expert" mode and only needed to use a hint twice -- they really let you work it out for yourself -- but without the cue comments there were two that I really couldn't figure out. Of course, I could have changed my difficulty level at any time if I'd wanted to, and I *might* just play the game again on "Challenging" mode just to see how it differs. I didn't have to skip any of the mini-games #one thing I find very frustrating in a game are mini-games or puzzles that seem impossible to solve#. And it might be fantastic, but I really enjoyed the storyline. I mean, why play these games except to indulge in a certain amount of fantasy? I thought the story was pretty well plotted and executed, and I loved the gimmick of changing scenes by turning the projectors on and off. Also thought the scientist/cowboy was just charming -- I'd love to see more of him in a sequel! Oh, and don't miss the interview with the producer in the extras! It's great fun! Awesome job, Eipix!

Wow! So much to do!
July 25, 2013

Sequel to Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen. You start off 1 year after Morton Wolf died...Review is based on demo on Challenging level. Developer is EIPIX, excellent graphics and sound. Three modes: Casual, Challenging and Expert. You can change the difficulty at any time. Transporting Map is very useful. Some of the dialogue scenes use real characters and you can advance through the cut scenes. 12 Morphing objects 37 Film Strips 10 Four leaf clovers 4 kites on map Many achievements, which can access at any time. HOS are interactive; can switch to match 3 if you'd like. Excellent game. So much to do, what a refreshing change. Plus you switch between scenes (sets) which gives it more of a challenge. Mini puzzles are just right. Only Con was if you stall in a scene, a sparkle will flash where you should be doing something. Guess I could always change to Expert. A definite buy for me!

Yes, it is a CE !!

Uncover the mysteries of the death of his father and his invention - something about mind control! Excellent sequence: really good story, high-quality cutscenes and VO, immersive atmosphere, outstanding environment, HIGHLY well done graphics and soundtrack. Good amount of interactive HOS, nice mini games, and .... A LOT TO COLLECT: 37 film strings / 10 clovers / 12 morphing objects !!!! It has an interactive map and a journal containing objectives. 19 Achievements. The only con is the level of challenge, especially of HOS and mini games ... could be higher! I loved the game! I played half an hour and bought it! Assurance of plenty of fun.
