Ratings and Reviews
Fun addition to Final Cut series
First I want to thank Sunshine Susie for the excellent review because it really helped explain what's going on in this game. The game's intro doesn't do such a great job of it but it's been quite a while since I played the last Final Cut game. It seems to me that this one is not really related to the others except for the time period. Anyway, the game is fun, I haven't had any glitches or problems so far. The HOs are a little weird but doable. I find the slide feature interesting, but I'm a person who likes to work with old slides so I like this. I purchased this game because I have liked the Final Cut series. I don't care at all for all the gothic haunted weird creature games and Big Fish has so much of that. I like the noire period games the most.
Wrap, Cut, and Enjoy True Escapades!
True Escapade is part of the Final Cut series from Eipix that uses Hollywood and the movie industry as its backdrop. I love these, because the movie storyline allows the game to go into almost any area. You are playing as a recently-engaged woman. Your fiancé accidentally shoots another actor while being filmed, and you must try to prove that he was framed. You have a handy-dandy Slide Viewer, and you find many slides. When you step into the room where the slide was filmed, you look into the viewer to compare differences in the slide and the present time. These become clues. Good Hint and Skip, interesting puzzles, and a good Map. There is an added twist to the Hidden Object game; once you complete the first "layer" of hidden items, you must use them to get another list of things. Great! You are also collecting Negatives in each scene. Also, the Silverwood Studios themselves have a "contest" in which you must collect three tokens in geometrical shapes and deposit them at the base of a statue. Who is killing the cast of the film, and why? I intend to purchase this one, just for the novelty of no monsters, dragons, etc. Another good one!
Worked mostly fine, just not very interesting
I've enjoyed the other Final Cut games so I gave this one a try. I had one glitch - one of the puzzles got stuck and I couldn't solve it, so I had to skip through it. Otherwise the game played fine, for which I'm giving it two stars. I'm not giving it a higher score because the game just wasn't interesting. Instead of bringing back previous characters, or the film cameras that shift between realities, this game is just a mystery about a movie that seems to be plagued with accidents. But it isn't really even about that, which might have been interesting. It's a woman running around because her husband is kidnapped, and for the entire game she's just trying to find a strip of film. I kept putting the game down because it didn't engage me. The HO games are a bit diverse, but repetitive.
I played it to the end because BF is not coming out with many HO games right now, and too many of the ones they release have significant glitches, so when I find one that seems to be working, I play it.
If it was more interesting I would have rated it higher.
