Chaos On Deponia is the sequel to Deponia and the second part of the Deponia trilogy. It is a sensible continuation of part one and basically features the same goodies and problems - see also review for part one
- including my main problem of the dislikeable main character Rufus, i.e. the player's avatar.
+ Beautiful comic style graphics
+ Nice intermission songs
+ Very good voice acting - believable characters
+ Good story
+ Mostly very good game/puzzle logic,
+ Shortcuts to menus, quick-save and quick-load, fast access via inventory
- Dislikeable main character that I want to slap in the face from time to time
- Some graphical glitches
- Some subtitle glitches
- Sometimes unnecessarily loud sound pieces
- A few crashes directly following sequences
Despite Chaos on Deponia being generally a great game I still have some issues with the game. Admittedly, all of the problems seldom appear but still distract (me) from the game.
There are some entities with kind of electronic voices, e.g. the guard dog in front of Doc's. They are designed with mixed-in white noise which results in an awful experience.
Sequences often work with half-static pictures sensibly restricting updating screen space to what is actually changing, e.g. eyes and mouth in a close-up of a face. Unfortunately, sometimes the game fails to correctly position the updating position resulting in a black line on the screen, e.g. when reading the note from Bozo.
There have been some instances where pictures/elements of the screen are slanted. It looks like the picture is read from some map with multiple pictures and the width to read was read 1 pixel to big. Examples are the cursor on Grandma Utz or the squirrel in the get-the-egg-game.
When credits roll there is a gap at the bottom of the screen where you see names entering the screen before being obfuscated by the waves (on the top layer) and then reappearing in the planned display space on the sign.
The cursor flickered in the dialogue with the pharmacist.
Subtitles at times contain typos or do not match what is actually said.
Overall, Chaos on Deponia is a good game and continuation of Deponia. I'm looking forward to Goodbye Deponia and hope the final part of the trilogy will teach Rufus basic social skills.
