All in all, I find Cadenza: The Eternal Dance to be an excellent game and a must-have addition to my gaming library. Oh, and if you just don't like HOPS, you can always switch to a mini game to help complete the scenes. I hope all fellow gamers have a good and very healthy 2017. I love puzzles in HOPA games and even though some puzzles are familiar there are still some surprises in difficulty.
I really got into the story when the demo ended. Game development team did a brilliant job getting the player to feel involved with the story and connected to the protagonist. The graphics are excellent with good voiceovers but it is a bit odd that the lip-syncing seems to be a hit or miss sort of thing. Each game in this series has a little different story line and they have all been interesting.
The Strategy Guide, of course, tells you where they are. The remaining extras are the standard fluff but for new gamers the in-game strategy guide is always a benefit. Many of the scenes have puzzles incorporated as well as some interactivity when it comes to finding many of the items. In terms of entertainment and relaxation, this game delivers just what you need!
My reviews are based only on what I happen to enjoy in gaming and you might like something different so, as always, please try the demo to see if you might enjoy this amazing game. Cadenza: The Eternal Dance has a great story, cute hidden object scenes, fun puzzles! The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Interactive List finds, the scenes are beautifully drawn and there are a ton of interactive items. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, with finding Keywords in a Sentence etc.
All in all, Cadenza: The Eternal Dance is a good game. Not an amazing one. Mini Games: A nice variety here too. The one challenging one to me was driving the airship. The story doesn't get a lot better as you play, you have cliche over cliche with a few minor exceptions which I won't reveal in order not to spoil your experience, the story of the game seems uninspired and It really can't draw you in. Cadenza: The Eternal Dance does not disappoint when it comes to length either. Playing on the easiest mode, we spent over six hours on the main game.
I think all levels of players will find this one fun for one reason or another. Colors are quite nice and bright, very true. The graphics are sharp, the cutscenes are top-notch, and the fancy visual effects are sophisticated. I Love this game and find it to be the perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday morning, in fact I had to pull myself away to finish my housework.
It is certainly on my buy list.
