Really loved the first game, still liked the second. However, for the steeper price I expected a bit more. The game is more of the same for the first half, the levels are less impressive than the first games'. After a while there are some new and interesting concepts being introduced, but they were too little, too late. I am expecting a new part "soon" with more of these new concepts in it, but therefore, it feels as if UsTwo deliberately saved the best part for another part for some "easy cash".
MV1 was a superb game, brilliantly realised. This sequel I had great expectations of but was a little disappointed. Some levels were rather short, one or two exceptionally so. There were some new ideas, again well done but in essence it was like an expansion pack. There did not seem to be the complexity of before and often a level was a one trick wonder, repeated, with little of the creativity and cleverness of design I was hoping for. Still worth playing but it is always hard to live up to something as good as MV1.
This is an amazing game in many respects. In most of them, this is a step forward over MV1 - better sound design, great levels, more mechanics to play with. However, the narrative is a letdown - there is no real meaning in progression, the levels do not reflect the plot. MV2 has the variety, but MV1's coherence in storytelling make it a better experience overall.
As a work of art and design, it's absolutely gorgeous and brilliant. As a puzzle, it's not nearly as challenging as the first Monument Valley. I think the designers forgot it was a puzzle game. Also, there's no indication ahead of time of how many levels there are, which unnecessarily adds to the disappointing sense that it's too short when the last level is surprisingly done. All this did not prevent me from playing through twice, though. If you have not played the first Monument Valley, I highly recommend starting with this shorter and less challenging edition, and then getting the first one. Fans of the first one will not want to miss this new edition, so I recommend it, as long as you are forewarned that it's beautiful and imaginative, but shorter and less challenging as a puzzle.
I was on the list anxiously waiting while all the Apple people got their hands on this first. I'm a huge fan of the first game and this sequel is a massive disappointment. 1. The sound effects aren't as polished. 2. It has more levels but they are so easy the game is considerably shorter. One of the levels you literally walk from point A to point B and that's it. 3. It does fill in the gaps in story from the original and has some very cute moments. So that's a plus. Overall this game is not worth the money.
This is bitterly disappointing. It is less challenging that its predecessor. As a fan of the first, this sequel is very sorely lacking in pushing the idea forward. The whole game is just linear clicking. A beautiful visual spectacle but way too easy and not enough challenging. What a missed opportunity.
Fixed an issue which prevented screenshots from being shared for some players running Oreo on their devices, and also fixed an issue which was causing in-game text to display in an incorrect language for some players.
Relaxing puzzle game, telling the story of Eon through gorgeous art and music.
