This was pretty much an average game. I didn't like that they hid inventory objects so close together. They were easy to miss. The mini-games were fairly fun. They look complicated at first, but are not. Didn't like the abruptness of the ending. Game could have been a little longer. Storyline was average, with a little too much dialog. Overall, I didn't hate it, but it didn't excite me much, either.

Whew good over evil. Did good prevail? Perhaps for now.
I am a little late with my review. I have been playing several games skipping one to another. I was never able to play the first Exorcist so this game was welcome.
The games challenge was at least to me welcome and plenty of it. The sound quality was very good with only the voice of the devil in a tone most suitable for a beast. When B speaks read.
The scenes were beautifully presented. Object scenes were well done and at times challenging to me. Puzzles ran from less challenging to more challenging. I loved the find the 4 clovers.
I enjoyed the game if you choose to play I believe you will too.
Thanks to all for bringing us the most creative production. I really liked the wierdness.

I cannot understand how anyone can say this is a short game. I have played over 4 hours at the lowest difficulty and it is not the first HOG I am playing!
Really loved the graphics, too!

Really good game
The game is really good. Perfect story and voice acting. Original gameplay. Small amount of HO is compensated by various Puzzles (some of them are quite original)

This is the only hidden object game I've ever managed to play all the way through without a walk-through or having to continuously check back in the forums for help. Yet, it's still quite challenging. The first time through I relied heavily on in-game hints, and solved almost none of the puzzles without using the skip button. There are two must have's with this game however. One is patience and the other is sleep!
The game designer has blended top-notch graphics with state of the art game-play, and has built an amazing game. Bravo!

Lots of fun, but not very difficult
The graphics are great. The puzzles are moderately challenging. The voices are annoying as anything and the demon takes FOREVER to speak his lines, but that really doesn't affect game play. I enjoyed playing it and I think anyone that enjoyed the old 7th Guest type games will enjoy this one.

I found this one challenging and a great improvement from the 1st part (which I anyway liked and played through twice!).
Good legth, nice storyline and logical tasks most of the way (well, yeah, not always, but it's a created reality after all).
I loved to be in the games atmosphere after extensive xmas shopping chores last 2 weeks (OMG! ((( ) - very refreshing))

Even better than the first one!
I really enjoyed this sequel. Even better than the first one was. The graphics were lovely and clear. There was just enough challenge without getting stuck. Was able to move on thru the game without help which was nice. Overall very fun game.

A good adventurous hidden object
This is a game from Intenium that felt very tongue in cheek in its dramatic style however if you do not like anything paranormal then it will not be for you as it opens with you having to perform an exorcism which no doubt you have guessed from the title.
The graphics & artwork are very good although the animations of the figures, coaches, etc. are a little dated & there is a grainy quality to the scenes which is in keeping with the theme. The hidden object scenes are well drawn & there are interactive items, the mini games are also fun to play & range from easy to ?I had to use the skip button? hard. There was a good variety too.
There was a cheat on the widescreen in that either side of the screen is a ?pillar? so it is not really widescreen but it makes a change from a black bar. The music is ok & the background sounds are good but I do wish the developer had not added an organ sound every time you accomplish a task or find something useful, it soon becomes annoying. The voiceovers are well done (except for the little girl which is obviously a woman pretending to be a child)
You get a diary in which the story is written as you play & clues are collected. There are three modes, casual with 30 second hint & the H0 scenes have sparkles; expert with a 1 minute hint but no sparkles & a professional with no hints, no skip button & no sparkles. The hint was of the type where you are pointed in the direction to go next, it was fine most of the time but wasn?t very helpful in a couple of places so I had to look at the walkthrough.
This was a good length game with an interesting & surreal episode at the end, I liked it.

Best Basic Game in a Year
Exorcist 2 was as much fun as most of the Collector's Editions. It wasn't too easy but it was logical so I didn't get stuck at key points because I didn't notice an obscure rock in a corner. Really good game!
