An objectively better game than the first one... but I don't think I've ever played a HOG that allows the user to cut out the majority of hidden object games. That's correct, in this game (in addition to the ability to outright skip puzzles) you can opt for a match-2 game if HOGs just aren't up your alley. However, just comparing the two, it's clear that the devs put way more time and effort into the previous, seeing as each HOG is unique as well as visually pleasing, while the match 2 game is just the same exact game repeated ad nauseam.

In addition to that, almost every aspect of the game has improved from its predecessor. Better voice acting, clearer interface, a nice extras/options menu, and MUCH better puzzles/deductions outside of the aforementioned HOGs/Match-2s. The storyline is still pretty mediocre and as for the "plot twists", anyone with half a brain could forcast them from 10 minutes into the game.

If you're after some simple ol' sleuthing and hidden object finding, this game is probably one of the best of the market, as long as you don't expect a lot from a well-worn storyline.

After loosing the priest's and Hamilton's trace at Maple Creek two years ago, you found yourself going to Ravenwood. However, a giant raven seems to be interested in you and in the little girl hidden in an trail involved in an accident. When you woke up, everything seems normal but after discovering a prisoner in Ravenwood, you're thrown back to a world of darkness...

Enigmatis 2 is the follow-up of the events in Maple Creek, where you stopped a priest in his way to eternal life. However, Hamilton, the detective investigating his lover's disappearence since 30 years ago, disappeared with the dagger. Now, two years after, you're still searching for them, as you fear that the preacher will not stop and that Hamilton is still out for spilling his blood. However, here, you have to save a little girl and her parents from a terrible fate. A prisoner will help you in your deductions and tell you the story of these disappearances. The plot is well-written and because Ravenwood was released on Steam before Maple Creek, I hadn't any clue about the twists happening later because I didn't have these references. It means that Ravenwood works perfectly as a stand-alone and that you don't need the previous story to understand everything (in reality, in Ravenwood, you'll get the whole picture of the situation). Seeing how the plot ends, it's clear that it's missing a third chapter and I hope to see a sequel one day.

As for the gameplay, it's the standard one: use items, find them, clear hidden objects scenes, solve puzzles. However, in addition of that traditionnal gameplay, you can find for hidden objects scenes two ways to play them: shapes and words. Also, the return of the investigation board is also a nice way to keep being focused on the case and to unlock new objectives. Generally, these deductions will grant you more questions to ask to the prisoner and he will give you also items needed to advance. Finally, Enigmatis 2 doesn't suffer of a problem of navigation, like I had in Maple Creek. You don't have to fear a misclick now.

The graphics are also quite good. I really liked the switch between an illusion world and the reality. Too bad it's only happening once. But you can find leftovers of it thanks to objects changing forms in the scenes. And given the fact that you need to find them for an achievement, it's quite amusing to hunt them down. Another good idea was to make some statues "alive" (eyes moving, head turning, etc...) to strenghten the feeling of being watched, so that you're not at ease at all in this desolation. However, contrary to Maple Creek, which was a town, here, you're in a national park, surrounded by nature and cabins.

The soundtrack is as usual good and the voice acting is perfect. I've nothing to say there.

So in other words, Enigmatis 2 is an excellent casual adventure game, delivered by Artifex Mundi themselves. The game is really worthy of a purchase at full price but Artifex's games are often discounted in the weekly sale or in bundles. If you like their work, you'll love Enigmatis 2.

It was very good, started even better than prequel!
But it ended on "just good" state.

Gameplay: 8 / 10 - I wanted to give a 5 star here, because of the achievement (see below), but overall - the GUI seems better (even if I prefer the prequel one notebook :> ) , the game itself was simplier to play, finally I was could "teleport" via the map. I could also lock the inventory. Naaah - changed from 7 to 8! :)

Story: 8 / 10 - slighty less interesting than the Maple Creek story (begging was amazing, the mid game poor and end game - very good)

Music: 10 / 10 - this time it was pure perfection

HOG: 4 / 10 - ... yea... One thing I could skip all HOGs and play some memory instead and the second - it was SUPER easy when I wanted to have a harder ones... This is a wrong direction :(

Puzzles: 3 / 10 - I wish I could make it higher than before (4) because there were muuuuuchh more of them. Unfortunatelly - they were SUPER easy, instead of 2 maybe 3 of them which was average. Sum: +2 for amount, -3 for much easier tasks

Using items puzzles: 6 / 10 - again! I wanted to give more because there was much the puzzles of that kind and I felt much more joyfull solving them... But unfortunatelly - there were TOO many situations, where I had few items for prize / prise (~?) something (crowbars, knifes, sticks, brenches, etc.) but NOPE - YOU MUST DO IT WITH ANOTHER ITEM :I

Locations: 5 / 10 - It started really good, oh man! Really really good! But more and more time I played it, it wasn't interesting, shocking or atmospheric for me. And most of the times - I didn't need to go back... :/ It was just move forward and forward...

Ending: 10 / 10 - Shhh... It's a secret :) I can only tell this is a GOOD direction! :))

Protagonist: 8 / 10 - YES! I demanded and I got it! In Ravenwood there is so many of our hero, so we can finally get to know here a little bit more! We could be her!

Logic: 7 / 10 - it was ten minus two, for YOU MUST PRISE IT WITH ANOTHER KIND OF CROWBAR! and minus one for few little amuzing situations

Duration: 8

DLC: 4 / 10 - boring, boring and again - boring. Again it was short and had many HOGs inside, but I finished it just for sake of 100% completion and for ending expansion.

Achievements: 5 - It was really hard to rate this detail. Collection illusions and butterflies was a challenging task.
I don't know about butterflies, but illusions collection had at least one situation, where you could gather it only once per gameplay. Guess what - I missed one of them...
There were also a bad achievements. Like - complete the game second time to get them - I did the HOG ones first time so the second (and unwanted) playthrought was pointed towards memory-game cheevos. And my sad one illussion.

Imagine my frustration when I missed the one illusion at the begging, where there is no way to go back to that state.
THE DUCK!!
I tried to start the story again - ... but I COULDN'T!!
So I created the another detective account~ and finish the game... second time... and hurray - I am still missing the one achievement - "collect all acheivement" one.
DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!

Fortunatelly - within my THIRD gameplay - I only needed to get memory (again..) and the one illusion I missed durning first playthrought.

In summarize of this damn achievements: I give it 10 and I give it 1. So let's say it is on 5.

Overall: 86 / 130 (66%)

Personally I would give this game 60% too.
It would worth for me 70-75% in ratings, but because of my 100% completion addiction - I need to finish it 2 times (3 times... ) which was super frustrating...
Anyway - I DO recommend it :)
And I still can't wait for part 3 of the series! :>
