Summary

A not at all satisfying sequel to innocent until caught

The Good

The best asset of the game is its humor. Pretty clever sometimes near the edges. I love drawn graphics instead of 3d or polygonal graphics, and this title has some really good draws. Most of the actors (when it comes to the cd version of the game) are pretty convincing. Especially the 2 protagonists voices are perfect choices for the characters they play.

The Bad

The plot is almost awful. The whole game looks like series of non-continuing episodes. The had some good ideas... but the just couldn't fit them together and make a robust story. Riddles. I wonder why is it so difficult for adventure game makers to make logical riddles. But 20% of the riddles in the games are logic... but 80% is a heavy problem. There are problems where you can think the obvious solutions but it will not work...because the games requires to act a series of silly things prior to the obvious. Really annoying. Gameplay. Really bad. The operate option and the pick/drop are annoying. There should be one single use option to do both.

The Bottom Line

Although every classic adventure gamer should play it... its a real disappointment. Especially if you played and enjoyed innocent until caught.
