If you liked Puzzle Agent, you'll probably like the second one too. The story definitely escalates a few silliness notches.

Ha szereted a point and click és a sztori megoldós,puzzle os játékokat,akkor ajánlom neked :) . Nem túl nehéz,de nem is volt kömnnyű. A sztori izgalmas,fordulatokkal teli. Nem árt hozzá angol tudás,de magyarosítás is készült róla.
Nekem a grafika nagyon teszett, a szinkron is jó volt , a hang effektek is rendben voltak. Mindenkinek ajánlom bátran :) .

After playing Puzzle Agent, I knew what to expect, but found the puzzles in this one even easier, more repetitious, and more arbitrary than in the first game. The plot got resolved - more or less - in this one, but because the puzzles are so arbitrary and repetitious, engagement in the story was fairly minimal (in some ways, I didn't care about how Nelson was going to solve the mystery because none of the puzzles really 'solved' anything). This game is good if you're looking to do puzzles like the ones you find in a puzzle book but with a bit of plot in the background. If you're looking for a story and trickier puzzles, don't bother with this one.

For fans for adventure games like Layton, this one pulls the right strings. For people who see little red men hiding around everyo corner.... whispering..... it might trigger a few things.

Much better than the first Puzzle Agent, and this time with achievements. Game isn't really as long as most people claim (3-4 hours) I spent about 2 hours on my first run and spent less than an hour on my second one to get all of the achievements. I recommend if you were a fan of the first one as it clears up a lot of things, and it really amazed me how even some things I forgot about the first one had a big role in this one.

Puzzle Agents 2 takes the story back up after Puzzle Agents. The first game ends on a cliffhanger and this wraps it up. Sort of. I'm going to admit, the story doesn't feel satisfying at its completion. I enjoyed it enough. I think the puzzles are honestly not super well done or explained. The story is fun, the art, voice acting, and music are all pretty solid and I enjoyed it, even with its less than satisfying wrap up.

Before buying Puzzle Agent 2 on Steam, please consider buying Puzzle Agent 2 on GOG. GOG.com is home to DRM-free games and supports older games far better than Steam does. This review assumes you already own and have completed the first Puzzle Agent, my review of which can be read here.

Game: Puzzle Agent 2
Developer and publisher: Telltale Games
Released: 30 June, 2011
Genre: Point-and-Click Mystery with Comedy
Setting: Winter, 2010, Scoggins, Minnesota, U.S.A., Earth
Spoiler-free plot summary: About a month after the events of the first Puzzle Agent, Agent Nelson Tethers is still obsessed with the mystery behind the Hidden People of Scoggins. During his vacation, he travels back to Scoggins and attempts to solve the mysteries haunting his mind.

Full review: Not much to say here really. Puzzle Agent 2 is set in the exact same location and has the exact same mechanics as the first Puzzle Agent. All that's really new here are harder puzzles, remixes of puzzles seen in the first Puzzle Agent, and the answers to the unsolved mysteries of the first Puzzle Agent.

Again, I can't talk about the plot of Puzzle Agent 2 without spoiling anything as everything kicks off right from the getgo. What I will say, however, is that all of the mystery and eeriness is completely thrown out the window as the plot, even though it starts out strong, ends very weakly.

Do I recommend buying Puzzle Agent 2? Yes, but only if you're really desperate for answers that weren't given at the end of the first Puzzle Agent. You're really not missing out on much, and it would have been best if the mysteries in the first Puzzle Agent were left unsolved and open-ended. For NZD$11.99, I'd wait for a sale for when this game is $2 - $3 before buying it.

Potrei fare un copia ed incolla dell'opinione che scrissi sul predecessore, ma sarebbe impreciso poiché, nonostante le effettive somiglianze, i due capitoli sono leggermenti differenti l'uno dall'altro. Anzitutto la storia che si, prosegue l'indagine del giovane agente Tethers, senza però lo stesso fascino e la stessa tensione del predecessore, come se il voler chiudere tutti i fili narrativi aperti con il primo abbia in qualche oscuro modo rotto quella atmosfera caratteristica.
Per quanto concernono gli enigmi essi sono bene o male simili a quelli già apprezzati nel primo, se non fosse per una difficoltà leggermente inferiore: in ogni caso, un paio di ore basteranno a terminare il gioco.

Cheers...Bob non ci avrà mai.

The first game was unique and so original, you would think they wouldn't be able to make it any better, but they did in this excellent sequel. When you think of Telltale point&click games you'd probably have The Walking Dead or another newer one. They're good and all but they don't match the amount of atmosphere this game has and it only lasts around 4-5 hours to complete. Aside from the short play time and (fairly) closed and slightly random ending, this game is a must buy.
9.5/10

I love me some Puzzle Agent! I consider this one of the best stories in video games. The writing for this game is just excellent.

Puzzle Agent 2 picks up right where Puzzle Agent left off, and concludes the story.

Highly recommended.

Puzzle Agent 2 is a puzzle game woven in the middle of a interesting storyline. It's unfortunate that the game has not added more to it than the original offered other than more puzzles. However, it's fortunate that they didn't break anything that did work from the original game and simply just offered new puzzles. No risks taken here, if you've played the original, then you know exactly what to expect for this sequel. Again, the only drawback for this game is the fact that it is so short. Overall good quality game with some good puzzles to tease the brain.

Puzzle Agent 2 is a game marred by plot inconsistencies and an unsatisfying story. While the characters and atmosphere pull the player in, the gameplay and story problems are overwhelming.

After competing Puzzle Agent 1, I was excited to play the sequel. Unfortunately, this game doesn't hold up. The story has suffered, as the overloaded plot crashes and burns in a chaotic confusion, leaving plothole debris everywhere. A list of which includes:
  • Agent Tethers keeps his job at the FBI despite returning to a case without authorization; breaking and entering into the local police department; tampering with government evidence; assaulting another government agent; espousing conspiracy theories to his superior; and stealing and destroying government property.
  • Mrs. Garrett did not want someone to know that Tethers was staying at her inn, but we never find out who or why.
  • It is never revealed what happened to all the missing people in Scoggins, because...
  • It is never established whether the astronauts are murdering the missing people or if this was another wild goose chase. Since there have been a few false leads in both games, intentional to the plot, there is no way to know.
  • This leads to another problem for the story: If the astronauts aren't murdering people, what's causing the disappearances? If the astronauts are murdering people, why didn't they murder Tethers when they cornered him and injected him with something to make him fall asleep?
  • It is never revealed what happened to the astronauts aside from Isaac.
  • Why did the astronauts remain in the forest for 16 years?
  • What are the Hidden People? Where was their home? What was their home?
  • Why did Glori and Isaac agree to go the Brotherhood if he was disturbed, when he never appeared to be disturbed?
  • Did the government know the space lander was in Scoggins since the first game? If they did, then why did they wait until Tethers sent back tapes in the second game to go there? If they didn't, why didn't they let Tethers finish the case is Scoggins the first time around? Why did they let Tethers stay in Scoggins after they found out he was there investigating a case off-duty?
  • This is a minor point, but Agent Tethers never draws his gun once in this game, even when his life is in danger. In the last game, I believe he uses it only once, and he misses. For some reason, the game's title card on Steam shows him drawing a gun. Again, I know this is a minor point, but why give him a gun if he never uses it? Especially since it's so easy to write in a reason he doesn't use one; He's an office agent in the Puzzle Research Division who almost never goes on field missions. There's even less of a reason for him to have a gun this time since he's not even on offical busniess. It just shows a lack of thought in the writing.


The list goes on. This is totally unacceptable and unprofessional story-writing. You can beat the game in under 2 hours (I've played the game a couple times to get all the achievements) and the number of plot-holes is unbelieveable. Why else would a game so short have a plot explanation on Wikipedia that's as long as a PhD dissertation?

I've heard great things about Telltale's more recent work, but there's still no excuse because Puzzle Agent 1 was satisfying as far as story goes. Yes, there were loose ends and mysteries at the conclusion, but the main goals were achieved and the mysteries were largely related to things out of Tether's control the whole time: He couldn't understand this odd little town, and he never would. It was over his head, and he caught a glimpse of something greater than he could ever imagine. The player is left intrigued. In Puzzle Agent 2, parts of the mystery are revealed and simply make no sense, leaving the player very frustrated.

The biggest problem with the first game were that the puzzles were inconsistent in difficulty and clarity. Here, it seems the difficulty has been smoothed out a bit, but they have lost variety and at times still have difficult to interpret rules. The biggest problem I had was that the puzzles had little to do with the story and actually broke the pace.

Not to say I disliked everything. Sheriff Bahg was my favorite antagonist from the first game, and his condescending skepticism of the meek FBI man Tethers is always so well-played. The voice acting for Bahg is excellent. The atmosphere in the game also retains it's X-files allure, and Tethers searching for clues is still exciting. Korka was an interesting new character, and she gave the story some funny payoff and comedy relief. I always liked Tethers as a character; he's an excellent straightman in a world full of insane people. He also always has this idiotic confused look on his face that's actually pretty endearing.

ACHIEVEMENTS: Since this is a point-and-click adventure game, this is pretty hard to screw up, but Telltale pulled it off. One achievement requires a perfect run of all puzzles in the game. Even if you beat the game with one failed attempt at one puzzle and go back to that puzzle after the conclusion of the story, it doesn't matter. You have to open a new file and play the entire game over and do everything perfectly. Kind of a waste of time.

Overall, the game is atmospheric, exciting and well-acted, but the gameplay and story problems are too great for these high points to overcome. Not recommended unless heavily discounted, you have played the prequel, and are looking for achievements.
