  • Summary: Enjoyable though not very challenging puzzle game. Most of the puzzles, though not very intuitive and some even being quite repetitive, are easy to solve with a bit of common sense. A few puzzles however are a bit trickier but this is mostly to blame on vague instructions. Hints will help you further in these occasions but it will cost you points. The story is a bit difficult to follow at times but i was still able to like it due to the quirky characters and atmosphere.

  • Summary: Puzzle Agent 2 is a completely lackluster experience. I get that the art style is trying to make it look like a comic, but it feels like i'm looking at a comic through a magnifying glass. It just hurts the eyes, and the framerate is god awful during cutscenes, i pretty much had to close my eyes and just listen to what the characters were saying. The gameplay itself has you solving puzzles. These puzzles are either extremely simplistic, or near impossible.

  • Summary: it's the plot! and the quirky drawings! same as the first game; the puzzles are easy, the game is short, and there's no replay value. it's $10 on steam right now, so for a budget-conscious gamer, it might not be worth getting (that's $5 an hour!). but if it's on sale, definitely check it out!

  • Summary: Cute and mildly entertaining; the puzzles are fairly simple if you've played games in the genre before, but they're not necessarily explained well if you aren't familiar with them. The plot is about what you would expect from a game of this type: it's best to ignore it and just play the puzzles. You can get a few hours of entertainment out of it, but that's about all.

  • Summary: I really thought that Puzzle Agent 2 really fixed a lot of the major flaws from the first. Fewer ambiguous puzzles, more substantial hints, and better explanations. All around the puzzles were much better designed, and as a result, I had a much better time with this game. The major downside, however, is that this game is easier than the first. Even the game's hardest puzzles only took maybe 5-10 minutes.

  • Summary: Like all Telltale games, Puzzle Agent 2 has character and charm but this is an overall disappointing sequel. The puzzles aren't terribly difficult; I got 100% achievements on only the second play-through so don't expect much of a challenge. The story is the usual over-the-top fare with plenty of nods to the X-Files and Twin Peaks, which I personally enjoyed so I'd recommend the game to anyone who enjoyed Puzzle Agent with the caveat that the puzzles are easier and the...

  • Summary: I thought it was just about as charming as the first one. I really enjoy the art and the story, although the story gets a bit carried away before it's over. The puzzles all felt familiar, but most were still fun. I have to disagree about puzzle directions being fixed, though; a few puzzles took one attempt (which counts against you) to determine some of the rules or behaviors. (I'm looking at you, electron puzzle and rock-throwing puzzle.

  • Summary: Compared to the first, the charm of this is really lacking. The puzzles are slightly worse, the characters are slightly less amusing, and the plot is less coherent. It's certainly not to the caliber of the first, but if you really enjoyed the first, you could enjoy this one, just don't expect it to be as good.

  • Summary: I have recently finished the game and I really enjoyed it. I fell in love with the art style, goofy characters, and over-the-top story. I do need to point out that the game ends the story a few scenes too soon. This maybe TellTale's way of leaving openings for a third installment (which I encourage). The puzzles were not that difficult but I don't find that as a bad thing. That is not to say I didn't get stomped once or twice.

  • Summary: A disappointing sequel to the original game. Telltale fixed the problem with bad puzzle directions by simply dumbing down the puzzles and making the solutions to them entirely arbitrary. The story starts off promising amid the same creepy atmosphere as before but then descend about half way through into weirdness and silliness. The ending is atrocious from any point of view. The original game wasn't perfect but it at least had the benefit of feeling crafted.
