The Gallery - Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
The Gallery-Episode 1 has already so excited me that I couldn't wait to play the second Part. After a little more than 5h I was unfortunately already done. Together with the first Part, this gave me an approximate Playing Time of 9.5h. The Graphic Style and the Story, the Attention to Detail, and also the Gameplay justify the combined high Price. However, the Story is not yet told to The end and I eagerly await the third Part. The Graphics are still as good as in the last Part, but completely different from the island style of the Predecessor. In the Course of the Game you get a Pair of Skills, you can move things telekinetically with The help of your Hands, for example. The Puzzles were really great. At First, it wasn't as clear to me how to use my Hand, which I was supposed to do, but once I found out, the increasingly tricky Door Puzzles were very funny. It would be great if you could do more with the Telekin Tool. In addition, one or two Enemies would have been quite fun for a change, especially since these disgusting Things fly around and you get an additional Property ... Will the third Part become more action-heavy? Free Movement instead of Teleport. This works well and there are many Options to set them up comfortably that pleases as many People as possible. Teleport probably works too, but I always use the free Locomotion if possible. It's great when Developers put all The Movement options to The test. Unfortunately there wasn't enough to do in the Game and it could have been more, the Game was unfortunately over so quickly. In addition, travelling back and forth between the Locations felt like an artificial Extension of The playing Time after a Time, clearly there was the Story that was further told by Intermediate Sequences in the Travel Center screens, but one traveled more open, which then fell Away, too. It always felt like, "ok now I have Element B, time to go back to another Area to solve a Puzzle, to get Element C then back into the first Area to Element D etc." The long loading Times are already annoying a bit. The Sound, Ambient Sound. The Music was solid, but the first Episode felt more like 80s. I took the little Luggage radio you find here in part to always be able to listen to this cool Music. Unfortunately, you can't put the Radio in the Inventory. The Story, I do my Best to avoid Spoilers here, so I try to stay general. Personally, I liked the Character Interactions in the first Episode rather than the "Interactions" in that Episode. You are very alone on the Journey. While this Episode was ultimately destined to build Connections, there could have been some or even more Interaction with the Environment and the NPC. Overall though, a round thrilling Game, with Episode 1. At the End of this Episode, however, one stands and thinks, "and now?" I hope that the third Part will not be so long in coming, and this Feeling quickly disappears again. A clear Recommendation for all Adventurefans, best to play with the first Part together. Episode 2, however, can also be played on your own.
