@lewuz there was at least one more update after I completed the game.

The minor annoyances are things like a hotspot still being available after I picked up an object and some objects in inventory having no picture, really nothing.

If you liked the first 2 games, I would get this - it’s well patched now, quite big and very enjoyable.

I loved the first two TBOUT games and want to get on this asap, but those bugs scare me! I had bad experiences the Raven trilogy. As review was probably made with unpatched game (review published at 20th of March, patch at 16th of March), I’d like to hear more users beside incometrader to comment the stability of TBOUT2. Smile

A great story that doesn’t deserve this mediocre game.

The puzzles were ok, presentation crude but the movement was particularly annoying - you often enter a room facing the wrong direction for no reason.

I agree that the game took quite a while to get going as each character has their own area(s) to complete before joining in on the main story. If you can plod through the first 5hrs or so it gets a lot more fun. This game is big by adventure game standards, I clocked in at over 15hrs.

At the time of shipping the game was completely broken and clearly a beta. There were so many game breaking bugs I doubt anyone tested a single play through before release. It’s since been patched and only exhibits small annoyances.

Even still this is high quality and one of the best adventure game series available.

4.5 out of 5

*Sigh* I just wish people would clue up and realize that for many of us, “placing emphasis on dialog choices rather than traditional puzzles” is not a positive thing and definitely not an example to follow. It’s the very thing that prevented me from buying any telltale game yet - I have no use for mildly interactive movies sold as games…

Abandoned is great, but it copies mechanics and art style of Submachine series. If you like Abandoned - try the original concept of my countryman (but if you are hardcore point’n'click player, you probably know it Wink)

Don’t think this reviewer thought the game was quite as funny as I did, more’s the pity,  because I laughed aloud plenty. Loved most of the new characters, including the troll, and the game had so many moments that just kept me smiling throughout. Particular mention to Wilbur trying to scare Tim, and Wilbur teasing Munkus about his throwing ability. The side-quest through time was also another highlight. It was all just joy for me (helped I got through relatively unscathed by bugs too, I guess).

Story-wise, I thought it picked up considerably in the latter two chapters, but I’m not really that worried about the “lack of urgency” in a comedy game, especially one that makes me smile/laugh as much as this one did.  If you weren’t laughing that much, though, I could see how that would be a problem.

I’d probably give the game 5-stars, not because it’s perfect- it isn’t- but I feel that rating would properly represent how much fun I had with the game. 4-and-a-half at the very least. It’s at least on par with the original in my eyes. At the very least.

A little bit sad to see my enthusiasm not quite shared- I seriously doubt I’ll enjoy an adventure game more this year, and I’m well aware of Broken Age- here, but oh well.

At least we got a (mostly positive) review in the end. Smile

Looks great. Hoping it does well enough for a new Space Quest!

Good review - seems spot on.
I played Chains of Satinav and did not like it- mainly because its interpretation of the RPG source material is atrocious. Memoria actually fits into the Dark Eye world though. The German voice acting again is very poor, but the English actors are decent. Environments and characters look like great concept art but not fully fleshed out- this is especially true for the animations.

So excited about the review here. I kickstarted this one!

Waiting for the PC release to play it though. It is supposed to release on Steam or GOG. I’m not sure which one.

Oh no.  You’ve spoiled the whole game. 

To save someone the ten minutes it takes to refinish the game, there is no change in dialogue if you don’t pick up any journal pages.

While technically crude and simplistic puzzles compared to today’s A rated adventure games, I quite enjoyed this title.

The art work was first rate but the moral decisions really kept the game interesting as they do affect the ending. Unfortunately there’s no manual save so it’s best to copy/replace the dat.dlx file in the game’s directory if you don’t want to replay large parts because of one wrong decision.

I’d give it a 3.5/5 and but could have easily been a 4 or 4.5 out of 5 if the technical quality was improved and voice acting included.
