I was a little shocked when I loaded the new offering from BBC Games. not only does the client now run in higher resolutions (not sure when they patched that in to it) but the process on installing the new game was very well done.
I loaded into the game and selected the option to download the new content, this exits the game and opens a web browser directly to the official download page – download and install – re-launch client and as if by magic the new game is there and all your settings are saved.
Once the wonderful introduction sequence is over you are placed in a little cavern when there are some wonderful classic puzzles. eventually you find yourself in a very well designed and larger area.
The game is much better than the first one in every way. There is more atmosphere, better game design, the stealth sequences are much better as well, i played the game in a single sitting with my daughter and honestly i found it very retro but in a good way, it is in many ways like a tribute to older games more than a copy.
I don’t want to write any more because of spoilers but once again there is not combat system (great) and the puzzles are better. All in all there is very little to complain about in this new game. lets hope they keep getting better with this vigour.
