The hidden object puzzles were meh, the other puzzles were far too easy. I couldn't get into the story at all - partly because of the bad voice acting, and partly because, well, it was stupid.

There are many far better hidden-object puzzles out there, so I would skip this one. (But I'll still continue on with the last installment in the series, because I'm a stupid completionist)

Like the first entry in this series, it's especially easy. However, there are now more and better hidden-object scenes,. such that you can honestly classify this as a "hidden-object game."

But I enjoyed it less than the first one. The go-there-do-this gameplay is boring, the story holds no wonder, and there's no additional revelation about the game world. It almost feels like a bonus level for the first game.

But production values are OK. If you enjoy especially casual point-and-click adventures, you might like this one.

I wrote a detailed review for the first Empress of the Deep and I don't feel up to writing another so I'll just quickly list the similarities and differences.

- Number 2 is slightly longer than 1, much more so if you spend time in the bonus area and playing the new ZEM game.
- Graphics are better. In fact, I've played this game more than once simply to view the beautiful scenery.
- Puzzles aren't too difficult.
- More and clearer hidden object areas than the first game.
- Story is still very cryptic.
- Still has "Area Cleared" stamped on places where you've completed everything. Such a great feature!

In my opinion, Empress of the Deep 2 is the best of the trilogy. However, as much as I love this game, I still recommend trying to find it on sale because of its short length. Really though, I think this is one of my favorite hidden object games. It's almost as if the developers took some of the lovely places I've dreamed of and placed them in their game.

Well done! After playing the first installment, I wasn't expecting much from this game but I'm glad that I decided to play it anyway. There is a decent amount of progress both in HOG scenes and puzzle design. Also Gogii Games managed to fit in some well processed plot explanations, accompanied by some bonus content.

Following the explosion of the Arc of Humanity, Anna manages to escape in the nick of time. We awaken - this is becoming a thing now: passing out and waking up in completely unfamiliar territory - on a small island. The book that lets us communicate with Jacob is badly damaged, and our only clue is a doming piece of land far up in the sky: the Sky Temple is our next target. There, once again Anna's resolve and judgement will be tested by mystical forces. Will she be able to don the royal tiara and take the title of the Empress of the Deep?

Let's see what has changed since the first game, shall we? Art design is just as beautiful and imaginative, this time heavily influenced by Far Eastern concept of aesthetic, alongside preserving the former Atlantean theme. I'm glad to inform you that resolutions are much better and the former grainy texture is no more. Voice acting is nothing spectacular - still a bit tedious and unimaginative - but there is a certain amount of improvement.

This time, we face better HOGs thanks to resolution changing, but they are still considerably hard for the genre. Puzzles are ordinary, with still pretty art design. Now, Empress of the Deep 2: Song of the Blue Whale being a collector's edition here, contains some bonus content which would present you a brief glimpse on Pandora's perspective, our evil twin sister. When you complete her story through some memory logs, you'll gain access to a pretty fun casual game.

Scenario presentation is far better than the first game, and this time we face far better plot deceptions. There is an explanation for constant puzzles, the cause lying behind Pandora's evil, and even a second look on Jacob's personality and loyalty. The ending was somewhat foreseeable, yet made it obvious that Anna's story still didn't end. There are still questions to be answered and I'll salute the developer if all will be properly revealed in the last game.

As it is, Empress of the Deep 2: Song of the Blue Whale is a beautiful and imaginative HOG, with the only minus being that one should play the former game to establish a decent understanding of the storyline. If you manage to bear the first one, you'll most definitely enjoy this one!
