Having played the first game, I was looking forward to playing this next adventure. The puzzles are still and these have improved as they have been incoporated into the story.
However with the need to make it more 'actioned packed' with the game now set in several locations, exploring has been sacrificed for location. The story I felt was weak and bear little resemblance to the story unfolding. The side games were just a distraction rather than adding to the game a whole.
Good puzzles but better story telling with more of an adventure please - I had lots of unanswered questions from this game!
