Come on Heileen...2 Electric Boogaloo

Ok, I won't reference that song. What I will say is that this is a bad game. That make you question why I recommended this game and I did for the simple fact that it was fun. The storyline is poop, the game play is dull and there is no romance endings at all save for one. It's a completely different game from the first installment in the series. However, I had fun and took quite a bit of screen shots because some of the dialogue was just so out there. It made me laugh.

If you've played Heileen 1: Sail Away then you'll know what there was a ship wreck at the end. This game makes all the endings in that game null and void as you are left alone with Robert, Ebele and Black. You're with them, alone for 75% of the game. All you do is wander the island, it's insanely dull. I went for the Kindness ending first since it took a bit of work to get it right, after that I gone through about half of the text so the next play through I could skip a lot, which made things better.

There are fifteen endings in the game; seven are virtues, seven are sins and one is where you just do nothing at all. There is no need for so many endings, most of them are barely different at all. The story at its core is about you and your friends traveling across the island to find help and then trying to get the pirates to aid you, that's it. Everything else is fluff and it drags out the game insanely.

Part of the fluff involves dreaming. Using the tarot cards Heileen has found she can dream and her actions in the dreams effect the real world. It's also the only place where Heileen can understand Black the cat talking, who by the way is the smartest character in the game. However, most of the dreams don't matter. There a few that drastically direct the flow of the game but most just affect your interactions with Robert and Ebele, which don't matter unless you want the Kindness ending.

Aside from your friends and the pirates you only ever interact with people in your dreams. Some are actual memories, some not so much. As such the characters in the dreams barely matter. Lora still acts like Lora, a kind but flirty seductress. Otto is still your gruff uncle, Marie is still your poor but lively best friend and John is still a jerk. You also meet Marcus, a childhood friend and Magdalena another friend, as well learn about what happened to your parents via the dreams. The dreams are helpful for completing quests, which also have no bearing on what ending you get aside from Kindness and two that deal with the pirates.

I have to spend a special moment to discuss the voice acting. When I played the first Heileen game I mused to myself how it would be nice if there was voice acting in this. This game has since made me retract that idea. The voice acting in this game is horrible, utterly horrible. Only three of the voice actors seemed to have any skills though one couldn't really make her voice different for the three characters she played. John/Jonathon's voice is horrible, which I hate to say because I know the person. Marie can't figure out if she has an Irish accent or not, Adam/Elias/Marco are voice by someone with a bad microphone and Ebele and Robert have a stereotypical "savage" accent. For any good that a couple of VAs did, everyone else dragged the game down. I recommend you play with this feature off.

Overall, bad game. But if you played the first one and are invested in the series then grab this on sale. Especially if you're in the mood for a good laugh.

Heileen washed up on a desert island with Robert and Ebele.
The game focuses on the relationship between the 3 and on the influence of cards. You’ll be able to either miss to signal to a ship or not and have a surprise of what kind of people they are.
Heileen discovers a tarot of cards. Each time you choose a virtue or a sin attitude in a dream, it will have consequences in the real world (bring you something useful, feel uneasy…). You have an ending to each virtue and sin.
You’ll find indigenous inhabitants and a funny way of getting out from them.
You’ll learn much more about Heileen and Marie’s childhood, how they met Marcus, who’s one of the characters as an adult!

From one side I found Ebele extremely jealous with Robert, but on the other side she seems to seduce Heileen. I loved Black the cat’s voice with an Italian accent. Robert’s voice is so deep.

Splendid artworks of the characters will provide cool screenshots.

It’s worthy to play to see how choices influence the unfolding of the story, which result is given according to your score and have a bit of morale lessons.

First off my time is short becasue I played the game a couple years ago and just reninstalled it to unlock the steam achievements. When I played it the game was not voiced, and I have not played Heileen 1 or Heileen 3. I have both, but I was waiting for them to get on Steam.
Honestly this is not the best game out by WinterWolves (see Loren Amazon Princess or Planet Stronghold), but I like o support English Visual Novels. I didn't play Heileen 1 so I do not know how the two games connect. Just from playing the second one it seems almost as if Heileen 2 is more of a set up for Heileen 3. The art is good and the background music was good. This one is not a dating sim. It is more about your relationship with Robert and Ebele (? I can't remember the girls name). There is some background on Heileen through various events. The game also has a sin and virtue system, so there is a ending for each virtue, each sin, and a limbo ending. Each ending is very different and they range from getting stuck on the island to becoming a pirate. Pretty close to the end of the game you are inroduced to the pirates, Morgan, Juliet, and their crew, who are featured in the next game. Overall the game is okay, and I would get it if you like the Heileen series or WinterWolves games in general.
