Puzzle Agent 2 is a decent title by itself, but it is mainly recommended for those who played the first game. They not only can watch the rest of the story, but can enjoy the increased puzzle difficulty.
A typical sequel usually does nothing but brings you more of the defining elements of the first instalment. Puzzle Agent 2 is no exception.
The artwork is yet again based on Graham Annable’s Grickle series, but one of the defining elements, the eerie small town mystery is quickly abolished by the new plot, leading into an overcomplicated government conspiracy thriller that in the end just cracks under its own weight.
The puzzles received a large overhaul. There is no more ambiguity, and the number of 5-second riddles have been reduced considerably to give room for more difficult and more computer game-like types. There is also a new incentive system for replay value: you can only access the final enigma if you successfully complete all puzzles without hints or wrong answers, a feat which is nearly impossible on the first try without a walkthrough.
Thanks to these simple design improvements Puzzle Agent 2 is a little more fun to play than the first game, especially for returning players.
