Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse is the sequel to Princess Isabelle, in which you defeated a witch. That opponent returned and kidnapped your baby girl, named Bella. It's up to you to uncurse your lands, as now, darkness spread out of the castle.

And that sequel was really well done in terms of story, because I never expected that twist in the end. Now, we're introduced to more creatures: while the fairy is still your helper, you meet villagers, dwarves and even a dragon that will you replace the fairy for a moment!

The game mechanics are still the same from the previous games: you uncurse the scenes, you free people from their jails or their sleep, you play some puzzles, some HO, you use the dragon or the faery's powers, etc..

The settings are still wonderful and the soundtrack is still good. I experienced one crash though.

Go for it. Because I wanna know what will happen to Bella and Isabella. And I wanna see the dragon a little more because the voice acting behind it is fantastic.

Princess Isabella 2 is a good fantasy-themed hidden object game… and that’s about it. It does nothing to make itself as memorable as the first episode; it’s just a generic HOG with a lot of running back and forth.

Long version:
Like with most hidden object sequels made years after the original, Princess Isabella 2: Return of the Curse has little to do with the original: it’s just a dime-a-dozen fantasy HOG with stock setups, stock settings, and stock plot.

The only thing that really ties this game to ‘A Witch’s Curse’ is that we play again as the titular princess, who this time has to rescue her kidnapped infant daughter. This task requires solving a lot of generic puzzles and generic hidden object scenes in order to travel through a generic cursed forest and fairy tale town. The settings look great, but the constant backtracking quickly wears out their charm.

Of course this doesn’t mean that Princess Isabella 2 is bad, but one wonders why it was released as a sequel instead of a new (copycat) franchise– the return of the hidden object duel minigame at the end hardly justified this decision.
Oh, also, this is the standard edition, lacking the bonus chapter that explains quite some about the plot.

About 5 hours long to play through. Well written. Casual/Hidden Object game with some mini games. There's no counter-intuitive backtracking, no objects appearing in a scene after you've already cleared the area - none of that nonsense which is common in the poorly designed HOB games. Delivers exactly what you'd expect. Not worth full price, but definitely worth playing.

I read some reviews which said the game was buggy - I did not encounter any stability issues whatsoever.

My biggest complaint would be the Hint mechanism - even though the game isn't overly complex you can miss things and get stuck and in some instances the item missed is many scenes back - clicking hint is almost always useless, so you have to have a degree of patience to play it through, backtrack and revisit incomplete scenes.

This is another ported game from the "Big Fish collection" and an old one at that. This is a standard version not the extended one, which contains longer story line. The ending for the standard version is abrupt and feels very rushed. This is another proof how some companies are trying to generate more cash creating different versions of the same game. Why? Wouldn't be better to have a full story and create a bonus material not relevant to the story? Anyway, when porting old games to the Steam use CE versions instead to attract new players.
The game mechanics is similar to any other HO game, it has good interactive map, which helps a lot when the game becomes repetitive. Some voice acting is very annoying especially those of the helpers. And they go on and on, and you can't skip them. Some of the puzzles are too easy some are pretty illogical.
In short I would skip playing these games on Steam but would rather got the web site like Big Fish where these games are coming from. You might even get a better deal there.

Although the game is fun and very casual. I wanted to make my point out there by giving negative review.

Firstly, there is NO support from the devs at all. I encountered so many bugs and I couldn't get them fixed.
Secondly, there is A LOT of bugs that prevent you from progressing or crashes your system.
Thirdly, I could not figure out the story and reasons for why something occured, I had to google it and found out that this game is missing HALF of the content that explains things clearly and has more game play.

Other than these reasons, this game is very fun and I enjoyed it a lot.
