Fresh off the heels of the Best Adventure Game win, The Andersen Accounts is back for another round of thrills. The tensions in Bay City are rising as the conflicts between Marked and Unmarked people start to grow. Detective Chris Andersen is on his way for a pleasant evening out with his girlfriend when he is approached by a stranger that transformed his body parts into wood. Can you help him stop this gang of criminals before time runs out? The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life is the latest creation from the brilliant minds at Eipix Entertainment!
Like the excellent first game, The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life is an excellent hybrid between the true-crime and the dystopian genres. The storyline is neither the most fast-paced nor the most action-packed, but it is consistently paced and the delivery is definitely impeccable. The storyline development and the buildup to the revelation leave enough room for suspense, which make for an incredibly captivating game through and through.
Again, The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life’s 21st century settings is a satisfying change from all the gloomy gothic games we get as of late. Eipix did an amazing job with the intricate artwork and epic visuals, along with the breathtaking musical score. I personally found the voice-acting of the protagonist a little odd, otherwise this game would have been perfect production-wise.
Through sophisticated gameplay, The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life is able to keep maintain the excitement from start to finish. The hidden object scenes are creative and highly interactive, while the puzzles are fun and clever. The protagonist’s supernatural ability is put to great use and feels like a device to get the player more engaged in the game rather than just another silly gimmick.
The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life took me under four hours to complete and it was a thrill ride all the way through. The Collector’s Edition is comprehensive and features all the expected extras; a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, videos, replayable hidden object scenes, replayable mini-games, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, and a souvenir room.
