  1. Well worth it!
    by Evelyn Leong, Hong Kong - Jan 20th 2014

    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!

  2. Really good
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - Dec 8th 2013

    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.

  3. Not as good as first
    by LB_, Canada - Feb 3rd 2013

    This sequel was no where near as good as the first. It felt MUCH shorter and much less exciting! It's really only about Nate and Critter, and Critter gets REALLY annoying in my opinion because you have to play his character for so long and he only has about 4 incomprehensible lines that he repeats over and over. You basically only ever get play as Nate and Critter which was a bit boring and the sweet little hobbit from the original isn't even in it, nor is the girl. Puzzles were fine, still challenging but logical and felt great to solve. Game finishes on a strange note... I didn't know I was done. I suppose it leaves you hanging with the prospect of a sequel, but the game crashed on my at the end so I couldn't tell if it was done or just crashing. I had to read a walkthru to let me know I was indeed finished.
