I didn't play the first part of Zeno Clash, so I was confused firstly. But then story took me. Easy puzzles, entertaining brawls, picturesque scenery, great sound. By the way, about the sound, my favourite enemies are marauders, their faces covered with bag like masks, so they sounded like they shout into a pillow. Actually great effect, so energetic, so exprressive. Sometimes I just load game to fight them and to listen to them.
Minuses: pretty linear, there is almost no choice. Also, some puzzles are just "do the same several times" mixed with brawls. From the middle of the game you get some instruments to interact with environment, and you'll be confused whether you're able to interact with it or not.
So, it's a good game. I had no intensions to play it actually, I don't rememer where I got it. However, I played it to the end!
