SummaryA Huge Step Back
The GoodThis is from the era of beautiful digitized paintings in Sierra games, so this title looks amazing as well. I'd love to see updated, HD versions of all these games, using the original physical artwork. Also, my only problem with the original Castle of Dr. Brian is that it's a little bit too short (then again, it's meant for little children, so for them, it can still be a lengthy, mind-bending puzzle game), so a follow up is quite welcome. And this is really just more of the same.
The BadMore of the same, except pretty much worse in every way. The game's length seems to be about the same as the previous installment, but the puzzles are much more aggravating than before. Many of them are just copied from the previous game or other games in general (The same kind of Jigsaw Puzzle as before, a game of Tower of Hanoi etc.), and some of them just doesn't seem to make any sense from a design standpoint (for example, the decyphering game is almost a carbon copy of the one from the previous entry, it just kind of a mess this time and the solution seems to be the combination of blind guessing and needless busywork).
