After playing through House of 1000 Doors - Family Secrets, I was a little concerned about how enjoyable this game was going to be. (I wasn't even sure if I was playing them in the proper order, chronologically.) However, this worked out perfectly.

Almost all the Interface annoyances I had with the first game was resolved by UI changes in this sequel. (i.e. MAP feature made it feel less like I was constantly backtracking. I always knew where I needed to go next, even if I wasn't always sure what I was supposed to be doing when I got there.) Plus, I played on Casual setting this time around so I was fighting less with trying to figure out where the layered hotspots were (hidden object puzzles), and could just focus on the game itself.

This still isn't my favorite Hidden Objects method, however, considering the massive improvements since the last game, I'm going to give it a "perfect" score anyway. I hope they make more products (especially in the Collectors Edition format). I plan on buying more in this series.

Final Score: 5/5 (Partially because of Extra Chapter, & Bundled Strategy Guide, etc in Collectors Edition format)

I'm also not complaining that all the Steam Cards generate several dollars each when I resell them, currently. ;)

Two things to note in case you don't want to read my whole review:
1) You do not have to play the first game to enjoy this one. They throw in a few nods to it but that is it.
2) This is a solid hidden object game with a good story, I reccomend it and the first one. Hopefully the third also comes to Steam.

That being said, the game isn't perfect. While the story is good I still do not like Kate, the hero of our tales. Not sure if they switched her voice actor but whenever she speaks she sounds wooden and bored. You're going to a freaking haunted house, liven up! That brings me to the next thing, why is she going back?! I didn't notice any word of her being invited back, less I missed it, so I shall assume she's a masochist or something.

But her timing couldn't be better! All of her old buddies from the house could use some help! There is Symon...oh wait, he seems busy. Oh and Sammy....who isn't around. And of course the beautiful Amanda! Who barely has any lines. Huh, so the odd but interesting characters from the first game don't do much in this one, that's sad. You do, however, learn more about Gabriel which is awesome.

The ghosts aren't ♥♥♥ loveale as in the first game but you get to save the world so, huzzah!

Loved the first House of 1000 Doors and this one was just as good. Lots of hidden object scenes and not the same objects to find every time. Good story and not too easy. I only had to use a hint one time, but there were other times I thought I would have to. Great for those who play on Expert Mode!

This game is a good all-round Hidden Object game. I feel like it isn't as quite as good as the first one but it kept the elegant touch the first game had.

Different puzzles and new places to be explored in this 2nd installment of House of 1000 Doors. All new hidden object puzzles, new rooms to be explored, its all in here. I havent finished this one but i can se how it relates to th first. Enjoying it so far, so yeah I'd say pick it up! Its a good game.

Both the games belonging to "House of 1000 Doors" saga are good HOGs, with nice puzzles and very well detailed scenes. The story isn't very original (the usual "mysterious house" and the lady that has to solve the problem) but it's interesting enough compared to other similar games and it's slightly shorter than the first chapter. I recommend both, but you don't need to play the first to understand what's going on.

Short version: 85%
A superior game to Family Secrets in all but one aspects, Palm of Zoroaster features improved level design, even better graphics and much easier puzzles, catering more for the more casual hidden object game fans.

Long version:
The Palm of Zoroaster did exactly what is expected from a sequel: took everything that was good or popular in the first game, made it better, and threw out the rest.

There is no more boring running around. The titular house serves only as a nexus between the four distinct paintings/levels, all featuring their own new ghost story that eventually form a larger plot. What that plot is can be a good question though, since the game lacks an ending, it just stops after the last artefact. And no, the bonus chapter won’t help either, although it reveals a few interesting secrets on its own.

The difficulty has decreased substantially since the first game, and there is a much larger focus on hidden object scenes. The progression is more straightforward, but not linear, giving you a greater sense of pace despite the fairly long gameplay.
