Falling a little bit behind the expectations created by its predecessor (of which references can be found throughout the game), the second chapter in the Chronicles of Mystery still manages to create a nice story with light puzzles, backed the most by the very nice production values, such as awesome cinematics, great voice acting, richly detailed settings and a nice diversity when it comes to the type of surroundings.
The story grabs your interest and manages to discreetly hold it until the abruptly end of the game, but it sure leaves the sensation it might have more potential for development.
Strong points: mood, attention to details, presentation, diversity, logical puzzles that pretty much most of the time integrate rather well into the story, references to the first installment of the series, characters;
Weaknesses: the story leaves the feeling it was not exploited to its full potential, difficulty of the puzzles, abrupt ending.
