My thoughts:

Well, it wasn't quite as dark as it was originally made out to be.  But nevertheless, it did have a sense of urgency that made the gameplay more intense and exhilarating than its predecessor.  And while I did miss the archery battles and the contests from episode 1, the clever puzzles and a few bits of comedy almost made up for them.  Not to say the episode was without its weird moments and some minor graphical bugs though.  So, was it better than episode 1?  Ehh... maybe not quite.  But I still enjoyed it.

If there was one thing I really hated, it was waiting for the installation and all the hassle of turning the console off and on and logging in and out, until the game finally recognized that I had the episode installed and allowed me to play it- instead of just taking me back to the store page.

The Game saves automatically, so theres no loading a previous save. When you die, Old Graham will simply joke about it, then the Game will load just before the bad decision is made.

Sadly there are only 4 Save Slots in witch you can copy one to save it in a different slot or Delete it or Rename it. Hence your Chapter 1 Save Slot will be overwritten for the Next Chapter and the next. Careful when you Delete a Save Slot just to start the Next Chapter, as the Game is Narrative Driven, witch means the Chapter 1 Data to the Next Chapter is Essential.

At the Main Menu of the Game is a Gallery Section that will have an image shown of Graham and the deeds he has done. Depending on your Chosen Save Slot as to how you played the Chapter, the image will look different. Theres also a Left/Right Arrow for the Next Chapters, but they will only be shown when you cleared the Next Chapter of the Game.

Each Chapter will Continue from the last Chapter, so everything you did and how you played with the Choices you made, will be Included into the Next Chapter.

To Replay a Chapter, go to the Main Menu and click on Play, then click on the Previous Chapter where you will be asked if you want to make a New Save Slot or Overwrite it. Now you will watch the Ending Cutscene of the Previous Chapter to start Fresh with the Next Chapter. To start from Chapter 1, you must Delete the Save Slot to start from Beginning or play from an Empty Save Slot.

So, did you guys like it? Was it better than episode 1, or weaker, or about the same? I don't really care, honestly, and I haven't looked up any Let's Plays of it yet, so I want to get your opinion on it.

Sadly I haven't completed it yet. Partially because of computer problems (which are fixed now- new laptop for christmas! Yay!) and partially because I made a mistake and deleted my save, not knowing that I could just click on the Continue option for episode 1 and apparently it starts over on episode 2. But what I have played, which isn't much unfortunately, I have liked. I'll give my full thoughts (if I have any) later.

Thanks, Daventry! This'll be useful for when I get KQ reinstalled later.

Oh, and thank you for being spoiler free! I wanna see the cutscenes for myself.

Not to spoil anything here, but that cutscene where all of the new characters died and were replaced by android duplicates kind of rubbed me the wrong way.

Good point! No way that could all be planned out in a single day.

Oh, also! Numbers! I know you'll be happy to hear this: Chapter 2 has no Whisper besides a brief mention at the beginning.

*shrugs* They only appear at the beginning. I feel like it's a Monty Python reference, but I'm not sure because my knowledge of MT is sadly low.
