Name: Dead Reckoning: Silvermoon Isle Collector's Edition
Release Date: 13 July 2014
Developer: Eipix Entertainment
Dead Reckoning: Silvermoon Isle is no doubt another who-dun-it Hidden Object Adventure game. The thing is that Dead Reckoning is not just 'another' game of its kind, in fact, it is probably one of the very best detective HOPAs we have played so far. Dead Reckoning consists of a stellar plot, with interesting and unexpected twists, clever storytelling and an extremely captivating storyline that will keep your eye glued onto the screen from the beginning to the end.
Dead Reckoning puts your detective skills into great uses; unlike many other games, Dead Reckoning really makes us feel involved in the game. We love the Interrogation Scene feature of this game, in which you can interrogate each character and make a judgement whether he or she is lying or not. At times, you also have an Inspection Scene where you need to be a little more observant and seek details of a specific event. Moreover, Dead Reckoning includes an Evidence Board - this is an area where you can organize and collect your thoughts and ideas together, nicely done!
Eipix is really going through a release schedule frenzy right now, so we are delighted to see that the team has not traded its quality for quantity. Actually, Dead Reckoning looks more awesome than any other Eipix games. The visuals are definitely mind-blowing, bright colors, superbly detailed, gorgeously beautiful and the graphics have a certain depth to it that you have to experience to understand. The audio team did an amazing job as well; the soundtracks and the atmosphere of the game fit like a glove, voice-overs are top-notch and the sound effects are splendid.
On the gameplay side, Dead Reckoning: Silvermoon Isle is not an awfully challenging game, but at least it is not downright straightforward. The hidden object scenes are very entertaining, with a mix of different searching modes. The puzzles are on the easy side, but they come in great variety and many of them are pretty creative. The game is also accompanied by some innovative tasks, smart interactions, a nicely-exquisite interactive map as well as a handful of collectibles and morphing objects.
Eipix is known for its more-than-worthy extra content and Dead Reckoning follows along that same line. For us, the main game ended just before the 4 hour mark and the 45 minute bonus chapter is very impressive.
Dead Reckoning: Silvermoon Isle is new and refreshing, with all the bells and whistles - it is an irresistible five-star game. With its first-rate production, watching Dead Reckoning gives a cinematic sensation; and with a strong plot and innovative gameplay, Dead Reckoning: Silvermoon Isle will haunt you long after the game ended.
