I've had little time to be around lately, but I had to pop in to mention how much I enjoyed Chapter 2! Here are some random thoughts....

As before I absolutely loved how cinematic the game is, that first shot above the standing stones on the Isle of the Mists - wow!

I feel like there's plenty to keep one busy to make up for the shorter Ch. 1, not that I minded, as it set up the story so well.... The classic adventure game scavenger hunt was a real treat and the sheer nostalgia of revisiting familiar locations was wondrous. I rather liked how this time around you could actually view the books in Ali's shop, it helped to further flesh out the world. I must say that Hassan is quickly becoming a favorite character of mine, such a funny guy! I love the banter between he and Graham. I found the druid scroll to be an interesting new feature and I see a lot of potential for it in the future.... :)

I even got stuck temporarily, in true KQ fashion XD

Then there's the story developments.... Edge of your seat stuff! [spoiler] Shamir revealing greater insight into the history of the Black and Silver Cloak societies and Alhazred's letters.... A surprising cameo from none other than Manannan.... And though it's long been speculated, the confirmation that Pandora's Box plays a role in this tale.... The sheer extent of Valanice's despair is heartbreaking![/spoiler]

On the technical side of things, I was very happy with the new gameplay improvements such as the walk/run option, and the widescreen support. There were no apparent glitches, other than a crash while loading to a new island, and that's most likely something to do with my system and not the game itself.

I could keep going.... But I must say that with my birthday coming up, playing Chapter 2 is a wonderful present! :P
