Ah yes, another lovely HOG from the desks of Artifex Mundi, of who are quickly becoming my favorite producers for this kind of game. Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood is quite the treat, vastly improving in many areas from the first game in this series, and adding even more goodies to give a unique flavor to this game.

=Complete Review=

=The Story: 4/5=
Once again, I can't say too much about it so as to not spoil it. However, what I can say is that it certainly expands greatly upon the story and background of the first game. Giving you insight in to what the purpose of the murders are. You start off two years after the first game, hunting down a lead for the culprit from the last case, only to find yourself attacked by a monstrous raven made of shadow and mist.

This time, unlike the last one where you had almost solved the mystery before you began, you start on square one in the thick of a supernatural mystery to be solved. With a mission to save the family of a little girl you witnessed being taken by the beast, you must use your wits, and your perception to find clues so as to find who's the culprit behind it all... And how to stop them before it's too late for the family.

And, once again, like the last one, you get a bonus after you beat the first game, to get a glimpse in to the past of the life of a surviving victim of the tradgedy. I've yet to play this part myself, but if it's anything like the last game, it's definitely going to be a moving part of the story.

=The User Interface: 4/5=
Now, when I played the first game, I was left very impressed with the user interface. But, that's not to say that there wasn't flaws with the interface. However, in the sequel, it seems that those flaws have been taken care of. Not only that, but with the inclusion of new goodies to play with. The map is now separate from the journal, meaning you don't have to go through the journal to reach your map anymore, which did get annoying in the original.

Not only that, the investigations board has definitely been improved, as you now have a mysterious friend to bounce ideas off of, and to discuss conclusions and thoughts to. Which also allows you to reach your friend easier to turn in pieces of a much bigger puzzle, to learn even more about the story.

=The Gameplay: 4/5=
The hidden object puzzles are a bit more interesting this time around, so to speak. With more involvement in putting things together to collect them, and putting things together to unlock other things you need. Which, it does give more gameplay for those who want more out of their HOG experience. Sadly, the hidden object scenes are a lot more scattered than the first. But there's a lot more puzzles and plot to make up for it.

However, for those who are not exactly good at finding the objects, or get stuck, there's the option to play a pair-matching game instead to collect the items. Which does make things a bit easier if you have an item you just can't find, and you don't want to, or can't use a hint.

There are achievements for fully playing the game one way or the other, so if you're like me, and you like getting all the achievements in a game, you're gonna need to replay this one a couple times to get all the achievements, unlike in the first where I was able to get all the achievements in one solid run. Which, can be a good or bad thing, depending on your view.

The puzzles in this one are very nice, and there are maybe one or two that are sort of recycled from the first game, but it's done so in a way that makes sense for the game. The puzzles in here are pretty plentiful, and well done in my opinion. There are some that are definitely difficult as well, so be prepared to put your grey matter to use.

=The Graphics: 4/5=
Keeping in with the last game, the items are properly fixed on to the scene, looking like they actually belong in the same setting as the background. But, this time around, the graphic quality of the characters and cutscenes have improved a lot since the first game. Characters don't look quite as awkward when they are speaking, and characters actually move their head when they talk.

There are a couple problems though. Rarely, the characters mouth tends to look weird, and drop in quality when they are speaking, not as much as the first game though. Also a bit of a problem regarding the little girl's expression not always matching the situation at hand: Looking neutral/happy when she sounds worried, or is scared, so on and so forth. It's not a major issue, but it is something that could use a little polishing.

=The Music: 2/5=
Sadly, this is where I have to give a bad score. This is not because the music is bad, no. But because from what I can hear, most of it is recycled from the first game. There are some original scores in there, but the main themes are the recycled ones. But, it's not overly bad of a offense, considering that the music score of the original did well on setting the ambience of the game. Still enough that I'm gonna have to give a 2 for instead of a 3.

=The Atmosphere: 4/5=
The first one's atmosphere was amazing, and this one? It may not have the darker, doom and gloom look to start, but it definitely does a good job on making something feel 'wrong' with Ravenwood park. Don't take the first little segment of the park as the real deal, as things definitely get darker. Which matches the storyline pretty well in my opinion. Things do get quite a bit more creepy and gross in thisgame, and it has more jumpscares than the last, so it's definitely not for the ones who are for more lighthearted HOGs.

=TL;DR/Pros & Cons=

- Richer plot than the sequel.
- Improved mechanics from the sequel.
- More puzzles!
- A new way to deal with Hidden Object Scenes.
- More achievements!
- Better graphics and cutscenes.

- Achievements will require you to play at least twice through the whole game.
- A different atmosphere that doesn't make it a 'cut and paste' of the sequel's style. Good or bad, depending on if you preferred the feel of the original.

- New pair matching minigame takes away from the HOG concept.
- Reused music from the first game.
- A few errors with how the mouth looks when characters are talking.
- A bit of overuse with some of the jumpscares.

=The Conclusion: 8.5/10=
The game is a great installment for it's genre, and is a lot more story-driven than the first game. I definitely would suggest this series, and this developer for those who like games of this genre! And I eagerly await the sequel to this game to know what happens next.

Thank you for your time, and for reading my review.

Story: Two years after the events at Maple Creek our intrepid and stubborn female detective has heard rumors of mysterious disappearances in Northern California's Redwood National Park. Believing the elusive Maple Creek Preacher is involved, she goes there. While driving through a remote part of the redwood forest overlooking the coast she is nearly hit by a black cloudy flying "thing" before encountering what appears to be an accident scene involving a family camper. No accident, as it turns out when the black cloudy raven with red glowing eyes attacks again to retrieve the girl child who escaped the first time. Drawn both willingly and cautiously into the dark sinister world of Ravenwood Park, (most probably an unregistered and unheard of tourist stop about the past lumber industry), she once again encounters dark and evil forces at work as she thrives to rescue the captured family. Old friends, new friends and a lethal enemy. Be warned, friends are only enemies with mutual goals.

Gameplay: Hmmm....I must digress slightly here. I will compare this to Enigmatis: Maple Creek first, since generally fans of a particular company will play the sequel (or more) even if they hated the previous game if they like the company that made it. (Or there was spectacular advertising,)
First of all Enigmatis: Ravenwood plays so much easier then Maple Creek. Artifex Mundi turned the volume down on the horror and suspense but upped the creepy and supernatural elements, yet left all the mystery, anxiety and urgency. Like that or not, this game is PG, not PG17, and I for one thank Artifex Mundi for doing this. Even the few jump scares (mostly at the beginning) were not that bad. Though I must say there were some truly terrifying and horrifying scenes in this game.
The second thing Artifex Mundi did was stop being "jerks" in the hidden object scenes. ("Jerks" by my definition make find clues in hidden object scenes so hard or so obscure the find clue is nearly impossible to locate.) Thank you for that too. Ravenwood plays like a dream compared Maple Creek in that aspect.
Third thing: There is a no-penalty fast travel map. Thank you so much.

Now just about Ravenwood, well almost, since it retains the same investigation "evidence board" as the first game. The "evidence board" is where our detective places all the clues she finds and groups them together in circles concerning a certain subject like identity, location, crime, suspects, etc. This is a clever mechanism for storytelling and informing the player what has been and still needs to be accomplished, as well as subtly reminding the player this woman is a resourceful detective. (In my opinion she is just as resourceful as Macgyver.) If this series continues, I do hope they continue using this play strategy, it is very different from other games. One even gets an achievement for finding all the evidence, and another for conditionally placing it correctly. Now that is clever.

The Hidden Object scenes vary from straight find lists with the added extra twist of locating the object first such as in a drawer or pouring a glass of wine from a bottle, to what I call shape picture puzzles. (Those are the puzzles that show a shape that must be found first then used, such as the shape of a key which once found opens something.) Not so easy to be simple (They did not overcompensate from Maple Creek.) but not so hard the gamer rage-quits either. Just good even average on the difficulty level.

The actual puzzles are easy to understand and relatively challenging. I do believe I noticed that as the game progressed the puzzle challenges slowly increased in difficulty as did actually finding all the pieces of the puzzle. By the end of the game as the game scope narrows the player frequently has an empty or near empty inventory. For me it increased the "felt" urgency as if I could actually be late and "not save day".

This game (probably due to the age) introduces the alternate hidden object play I have come to think of as one of Artifex Mundi's signatures. Instead of doing the hidden obeject scene, one can play a matching game instead. (This is Mahjong in the Nightmares from Deep series). Unfortunately this also requires a second playthrough if achievement hunting. I really wish Artifex Mundi (or any game developer for that matter that forces a second playthrough) allowed the other set of achievements (play all hidden object games or play all alternate games) to be gotten by the playing all the hidden object scenes in the extras as one or the other.

There are two sets of extra find objects. One the "Illusion" objects that even though they fade in and out, do so rapidly and are quite large. It is very hard to miss these. The Illlusion changes from well maintained to decrepit abandonment, which is in keeping with the Ravenwood game theme. These are kept track of in the notebook at the back, which is a very nice touch. The second set are the "Ethereal Butterflies" These are easier to miss 1) because they are smaller and 2) the gamer gets distracted. Make sure to get them before moving on, there are one or two the gamer can not go back for. These are not conveniently kept track of either.

Overall, a good game and I hope the series continues since the ending was left open.

"Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood" is pretty much as you'd expect from an Artifex Mundi game: a nice little casual point-and-click adventure Hidden Object Game (HOG). It has all the usual positives: nice little plot, well done graphics, inteseting puzzles, and acceptable voice acting. It also has all the usual negative: no saves, and a forced second run to get all Achievements. I also ran into a few more of what I assume are their standard negatives: inability to restart a game if you mess something up, and a Steam Achievement ("One of a Kind") that must all be done from within one in-game profile (that little surprise cost me about 3 hours of repeat play). With the extra run-though I had to do, it took me about 15 hours to finish the game. Without it, it would have been about 12 hours. So, even at the current list price, the game is worth it.

Since i thumbed down the first game of the series (Enigmatis 1) this time im going to write something up too.
This time ArtifexMundi did great job. Good like almost every their game (so far only enigmatis1 was dissapointment for me). Sound and visuals are really nice. Warm, colorful etc. Story is pretty solid, tho for me its a lil bit over the top.
Puzzles are not to hard, but thats a good thing i guess. Also this time you can choose between hidden object or playing two of a pair ("Memory" with a bit changed rules).

Just play it, and enjoy :)
