    Could Have Been Excellent

    I would have given this another star if they had revamped the visuals of the castle in the Kingdom of Orion.

    These graphics were fine for 2009, when the first game of the series came out, but they were already looking dreadful with the second game in 2010. Even allowing for the fact that two years have now passed since its release in 2011, I just don’t think that’s good enough.

    With the exception of some HO scenes, the graphics are as grainy and clunky as they were in the first game.

    Other than the graphics, this is a pretty good game. The things that I LIKE include:  

    *tool bar at the top of the screen.
    *getting a ‘final item’ to find in HOs, which is the inventory item.
    *as well as list HOs there are ‘misplaced items’ games.
    *excellent voice acting.
    *the picture puzzles at the end of each chapter.
    *the story, which continues to remain interesting, and the characters.
    *the locations outside the old castle scenes.
    *'doable' puzzles - in the past games of this series, these have been too hard for me.

    Another game destined to be great that just didn’t make it.

    But I have faith, and continue to hope for an instalment in this series that shows some improvement .

    I Recommend This Game
