Empress of the Deep 2: Song of the Blue Whale
Amazing city in the sky
I played and loved the first game, so I was excited to see there was a sequel. The graphics are an improvement, and the storytelling (my favourite part of the first game) is just as good.
I wasn't a big fan of the art style actually, but I really loved the design and architecture of the floating city. It was so creative and gorgeous with a variety of different features and buildings like soaring spires, statues and the ubiquitous balloons chained to the island to keep it aloft. The music was soothing and fit in with the look of the city, and I really loved the sound that gets played when you find objects in hidden object scenes.
The scenes didn't look as good as the location graphics although I wouldn't say they were bad. Your standard junk pile. Puzzles were pretty easy, but that's of average difficulty for the casual games genre. I disagree with the reviewers who say that makes this game more suitable for younger kids because pretty much all casual games are this easy!
What I liked most about the previous game in the series was that you had a couple of characters trying to guide you who told you to do different things and your character didn't quite know who to trust (although as a player it was obvious). That repeats in this game, except that it's not as clear who is truly trustworthy for most of the game, and the way it unfolded was really satisfying. I also loved the feeling of isolation and loneliness in both games.

I played this game without having played the first one. This is the most beautiful & interesting games I have ever played. The story line was great & the graphics so beautiful. It was just hard enough to be challenging but not so hard to be frustrating. I would nominated it for game of the year.

More awesome adventures in an incredible post-apocalyptic world . . . The scenes are lovely in their rendering, as is the New Age-type music . . . The puzzles are of moderate difficulty, & though the story line might be a bit confusing at times, the game is worth the effort . . .
No timer, so plenty of time to explore this new air-borne city of the future . . . !

Excellent and fun!
Wonderful storyline, beautiful screens, exciting adventure, challenging yet also helpful when needed. Many places to explore and things to do. Had such a great time I had to order the first one.

I played the first part and was looking forward for the part 2! And I was not disappointed. this is even better that the first one. So beautifully made, you could walk in this world for ever and a day! And enough excitement for an old woman like me. Enjoy it!

The Best Graphics Ever
I just got lost in the game. I loved the storyline but the graphics were the best. I also like Dream Chronicles games so if you like them, you will love this game. It plays for a long time, so you get your money's worth.

Played the first game and now halfway through the second. The graphics are beautiful, sounds and voice inflections great. The HOG searches are unique, and mini games are quite interesting. The whole genre of this game series is right up there. Hope the creators will pleasure us in the future with yet another series and theme as unique at this one. This game is top of the list for me. Just purchased the CE and can't wait to play.
