While BS2 is a pretty good adventure game on its own merits, in comparison with the classic original it suffers badly. The puzzles are less well balanced, either being absurdly easy or frustratingly obscure. It is much more linear (you don't get any sense of exploring a city, as you did with Paris in the BS1), and the story is much weaker. My heart sank at the moment when I heard that George's quest was to "recover the 3 magic stones and bring them together at some-place-or-other"... hardly a classic plot. On the other hand, it looks good, and this time round you get to play Nico!
