"The second installment of the critics-turned-designers' Penny Arcade Adventures serial comes off like a great band releasing a good second album that sounds just like their first. We still found the game's groove. The humorous writing, adventure-style problem-solving, and concise game mechanics are back. But they just don't pop like they did in the original, and playing Episode Two is almost like playing the first again.
Episode Two picks up immediately after the first game, even letting you import your custom character from that adventure. If you skipped that title or want to start fresh, a handful of character attributes-about five each of hairstyle, eye shape, body type, and more-mold your player. You'll pal around with the comic strip's duo, chasing after giant robots, the exceedingly wealthy, and other foes."
