The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Almanac Edition Description Goodies included in the Almanac Edition: 104-page Artbook - Over 100 pages of concept art and comics by the game’s concept artist Marvin Clifford, along with Making Of renderings and background info. The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 claims to be one of the longest adventure games of the last decade. But longer isn't necessarily better. Some of the puzzles run a bit too long, and the dialogue can drag, considerably slowing the pace of the game. The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is (obviously) a sequel to the previous game of the same name however this is the first time that the game made it to PlayStation. It is single player only, there is no multiplayer capability and there is no difficulty setting.

Definitely! Although it doesn't add much innovation to the series, this game offers a more complex and fine-tuned adventure than its predecessor.'[2]Hardcore Gamer: 'If you love point and click adventures, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is everything you could possibly want and more. With stunning (and clever) graphics, a fully orchestrated soundtrack and top-notch voice acting, its production values are second to none, and it has writing chops to match.'[3]PC World called the puzzle design excellent but the graphics and audio occasionally spotty.[4] It stated: 'The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is a reminder that while Telltale may have usurped the adventure genre, great traditional point-and-clicks can still be made.'[4]
