After having played the Book of Unwritten Tales, I had to get my hands on this game! Truly was not disappointed - the plot was filled with humorous dialogue and gameplay, with some truly heart-warming moments between Nate and Critter (: I loved how the game was not just about how they met, but how the blunders they get themselves into made them friends; I'm a sucker for a plot with good character development. The game itself was beautifully designed, as expected, and there was not a single scene that wasn't purposefully elaborate. Going to spend my semester break playing this again!
The puzzles are challenging and original, the story fun, and you get many hours of play. I prefer it to the first Unwritten Tales, though that one was quite good.
Initially Critter's gibberish is annoying, but I got used to it and came to find it endearing. And there is a a pattern to his dialogue that provides some clues.
One criticism is the needlessly snarky portrayal of an environmental activist - I can see people being offended by it, and for no reason.
