After playing through this game I really wish I had the chance to play the first, but seeing as I did get to play the second one lets just give you the review for that. In this game you are going to get the chance to play as a couple of different characters, but mainly you are going to be playing the part of Max and his wife Lara. The game starts of where the two are on vacation, and it turns out that there has been an art theft in the city you are staying in. You are asked to check it out, it seems routine enough, but as so many gamers can tell you, that mindset will always doom the characters. As the mysteries deepen, and the players involved become more complex, you might have to end up having to put the fate of one or more individuals on the line.

Graphically this was a great looking game. Each character not only looked different but their different styles, it gave them instant depth, and you quickly learned to trust some characters and be weary of others. The different venues that you will be going through were also very well done. You will be traveling to museums, harbors, houses, churches, ruins, and more, each captures an image in your mind that reinforces the mood of the game at that current moment.

Now lets get to one of the well done, and sadly tangled pieces that hurt the game overall. As many of you know, I am a SUCKER for fully voiced dialogue, and this game has it, the unfortunate thing is that there are quite a few times during the speeches of the secondary characters where the order in which the subtitles and audio files DO NOT match up. This caused quite some confusion for me the first time, and then later on when it happened, a couple more times, it was just a distraction that took me away from what is otherwise a very solid game.

The controls are very straight-forward. You are going to be pointing and clicking your way through the game. You will need to do this to combine items, solve puzzles, talk to individuals, and of course move around the screen. It's also a idea to use the 'J' key to pull up your journal, that thing had a tendency of saving my ♥♥♥ when maybe I didn't read through something thoroughly enough.

So as mentioned before you are going to get to play as a couple of characters, and the story that they are all a part of is something that had me wanting to keep playing the game. Now for some reason there were times where I didn't have a choice as it seemed the ability to go back to the main menu disappeared. I would just get a black screen, but if I hit the ESC key again I could go back into the game. If you too suffer from this, have no fear, if you move anywhere in the game, which causes a change in scene, the game autosaves. So what you can do is once you hit the black screen just Alt-F4 out, and the next time you play you can just click on the continue option.

Enough about the main menu issue, though. Let's get down to the game. There's going to be an artist flare to the whole thing, which plays nicely into the fact that Max is one hell of a painter. In some regards this level of polish in the game is what I had expected from Moebius Empire Rising. The character animations, though sometimes a bit slow on the walking aspect, where spot on. There was emotion in the characters, but not completely over the top. Each character had such a unique personality, I believed each and every one of them. I started to fear some of the characters, and started to really get ♥♥♥♥♥♥ at others. So the developers and writers of this game were spot on. The degree of difficulty in this game wasn't extremely high, but there is something about this game where it was no walk in the park, there was a scoring mechanism added into the game after a while, but it wasn't anything that would stop you from being able to further the story if you were not perfect.

I wish I could tell you about some of the characters, some of the twists, some of the puzzles, and all the rest, but that would be a grave injustice. You see, even though the audio files might have gotten mixed up, and maybe there was a weird bug with the main menu, I was still able to get through the entire thing, and at the end I wanted more. That's the kind of game that I love to play, and I hope that we can see more from this game, and more of this type of game in the future. This game, hands down, gets a score of 9.3 out of 10.

Quite a good adventure with a good script (except Chapter 1), plot twists, some original and inovative puzzles and long gameplay time (over 20 hours). I am a Czech patriot (the game is from Czech republic) and give thumb up. And now the negatives:

- first chapter is the worst and easily expendable. Do not get discouraged, be patient
- various bugs (misplaced subtitles, different voices)
- long loading screens (even if you hit ESC and press Continue game ! )
- some unnecessary and stupid puzzles whose sole purpose is to make game longer. Fox example, you need scissors and you cannot just buy them, you must repair a hose and use it to hit flowerpot on 1st floor with scissors in it! Or you must print a page, but toner is depleted and you must replace it (wtf). Or you need white paint and even though your character is a painter, you are out of white (what a shame) and you have to find it elsewhere.

Who ever played the first game in the series knows that Memento Mori is a point'n'click title with supernatural elements. Also, whoever played the first game knows how bloody awful was the majority of the game voiceovers and how sloooooow was the actual way the game introduced you into the story.

Luckily, Memento Mori 2 has a brand new voice actress for Lara which did the job perfectly. The gameplay is good with puzzles that tie into the story very nicely with no random stuff to do just to prolong game time. The story this time is much better than the first game (at least to me) and it really builds up nicely up to that final moment when you find the murderer and the whole reason behind the events in this game. There are a lot of locations all over the globe you'll visit, and lots of characters to talk to.

I only encountered a few audio bugs with strange vocal morphing or random "radio/telephone" filters on characters that were clearly infront of me - but apart from that, it's a very enjoyable game that I would recommend in a heartbeat!

It will take you at least 12-15h to finish the game and that's for a single ending only. There are several occasions where the choices you make impact the ending of the game so it even has a replay value.

I really liked the second game in the series, probably more than the first. The puzzles are more challanging, it dropped the dumbing-down cursor indicating if two items are compatible (so you have to actually try them), the story has a better pace and the game has a great way of screwing your expectations of what is going on. You can also get the two main different endings by a choice that comes up very late in the game (I could see how some may not consider this as an improvement but I dont think many people replayed the whole MM1 to get another ending, it doesnt have much of a replayability potential). On the other hand, some twists are really obvious and there are many unfortunate problems with dubbing. It seems that they recorded some parts of dialogues separately and it sometimes sounds as if one character was voiced by two different actors (maybe there is just a weird echo that deforms the voices). Also, some lines, especially Keira's, come up in wrong dialogues. It was kinda awkward when she yelled WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, SHOOT in the middle of a normal talk.

Max and Lara leave behind them the dark memories of the past and begin a new journey in life as a married couple. However the metaphysical tangles of destiny are not to be dissolved that easily… Though created by the small Czech company Centauri Production, Memento Mori 2 shines on (almost) every aspect. It features an interesting and unpredictable story with a powerful early twist, incredible graphics for an adventure game, lots of enjoyable and challenging puzzles and multiple endings! Its only flaw is the unsatisfactory and bugged English localization. A must buy!

Quick history lesson: Momento Mori 2 been kicking around Germany (and was shortly after fan translated into Russian) since 2012, and was critically acclaimed in those regions for the strengths of its presentation. Most of this is well deserved: it’s scored extremely well, exhibits a graphical sheen few of its peers can compete with and is a very bravely constructed tale that walks a line between grizzly murders and attacks against faith. It’s odd then that in the two years its taken to be ported to English that such a shoddy, half-hearted job has been undertaken.

I bought it and am not that impressed. I am trying to stay awake while playing it. I am a die hard adventure gamer and find it to be mediocre in all aspects. Puzzles are easy, graphics are dated, mechanics are cumbersome and the voice acting is second rate. The game is not worth $20 IMO.

Ehm... damn this was a very good game in my humble opinion. I was surprised by the strong story with nice twists, sweet puzzles and especially the amount of hours this game will keep you entertained for...
Had this game on a sale for a low amount but the price was definately worth it!
The voice acting is also excelent, something which is often badly done by other click/search adventures, throughout the game there is a constant and very defined atmosphere which I also found in part 1, nice :)

Highly recommended for puzzlers!

Not quite as good as the first one, but still a good adventure game. There is a appropriate plot, and some nice riddles. The first chapter is a bit borring, as someone also mentioned it before. Just keep playing, and it will get better.

Leaving aside a few weak points: some annoying puzzles, head-scratching item combining moments, slow movement of the character..., the game is quite a rewarding adventure, I would say a must buy for the fans of the genre. I also appreciated its length and character development, important features which have lately made games like Broken Age or Moebius kind of a letdown.

Caveat Review! Recommended only for those with patience and a like for the first game. Poor translations and varying speeds in the playback of the voice acting are at once charming and off-putting. Subtitles and dialogue are often hilariously mismatched. Broken menus and a faulty save system paired with random crashes make this frustrating. The game autosaves when changing to new locations (not every screen as some have suggested.)
The "detective points" system is back, but good luck applying any logic to some of the choices or figuring out what NOT to do in some cases. (e.g. Better take a picture of that handprint on the post (with the correct light) before "looking" at it, or be docked several points later without even knowing why, because an automatic cutscene has been initiated for clicking on it...)
If you can tolerate any of the annoyances, you will find a deep mystery story and a detective mechanic that is fun and rewarding. Graphics are great and much care and attention went into the many locations.

after installing and uninstalling and reinstalling again several times, i just can't seem to get the mouse to click on ANYTHING at all. I'm at the part at the very beginning where i'm being asked to get a pencil but nothing has a response to the clicking, not the valise, not the tv, not the magazine nor the doors. I can't say I enjoy it since seriously i cant even seem to play it. so yes 1.1 hours of game play and i still can't click on the valise to get the pen

Another old school adventure (in gameplay style) in modern graphics. I really liked the first one and was looking forward to sequel for many years. When English version was finally out, game was already a few years old, therefore it did not look very good, pixelhunting really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off and when I finished the game, I was left with feeling: That was it?

Inferior to the first game though still reasonably interesting. But I've never before experienced such bungled up dialogues in a game, so that makes me give thumbs down.

Disclaimer, I only made it through the first act.

I can't recommend this game. It tries, sure, but it is glitchy and buggy and ultimately just not fun. The game's opaque logic and long ♥♥♥ transit times between scenes basically enforce the usage of a walkthrough, and at that point why bother. The one thing I liked was that the minigame puzzles were usually pretty interesting and innovative, and it felt like I was solving real puzzles rather than trying to find whatever bizzare logic the game's creator decided should be the solution for an arbitrary challenge.

Also I know this is petty, but if the game is set in a city that the characters can roam freely about, why the ♥♥♥♥ do I have to solve a 7 piece item puzzle to make a jurry rigged socket wrench when I could just go to a hardware store and buy one. It was a sloppy excuse for a puzzle, and this game is full of them.
