Well. It's very better than The book of Unwritten Tales.
It has difficulty level for the riddles. You can still turn on the Show Points so you won't have pixel hunting even in HARD mode.
But the riddles are difficult enough in front of the first part of the series.
If you play the game in normal mode you 'll have more hints by the characters and you 'll miss a couple of riddles. Generally the game does NOT change much. So play it at hard anyway!
The graphics are about the same with the difference of the settings. You don't have complicated settings like AA Anisotropic or Antialiasing. You choose between smoothness and Picture quality and that's it. Well in the first part the antialising thing mattered . I had it in 8X. Here the differences are small to nothing. Try "Low" in smoothness and "Medium" in picture quality. The last one sets the textures sent to the graphic card. If set to the best it will sent uncompressed textures directly to the graphics card so even the best cards may NOT handle some scenes and you ll have glitches. You have more vivid colors but the difference is that and ONLY that. So set it to medium and enjoy the game with more earth colors. The graphics are 3D Indie so the colors are vivid enough anyway.
I wasn't amazed by the story BUT is better than the fisrt part and you have the critter to break the ice and makes you laugh. But still is better from the first. I enjoyed this game much MORE than the first one.
All the others like sounds , story , characters and more.... Come on.. You play an adventure and NOT the final episode of Call of Duty or other game to see things in Reality. We have imagination as players and all the game things are MORE than OK.
To all adventurers... Put the difficulty to Hard and FLY. You'll love it!
