Summary

LucasArts strikes again!

The Good

The whole darn thing! Humor, challenge (but NOT frustrating. This is crucial!), and some of the best music and voice to ever find its way onto a computer. File this one under "pure enjoyment."

The Bad

Well, it ends, and unlike the first game there are no other kids to use, so replay value takes a hit. I understand the space limitations, but why not allow for the player to choose which kid goes to which time period? This would have made an already fantastic game just that much better.

The Bottom Line

More fun than should legally be allowed by law. Heck, it even includes the first game as a bonus! Simply untouchable.
