4.0 out of 5 stars Touch Detective 2 1/2 October 20, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this little game! TD 2 1/2 is even better than the first TD. The strength of these games is that they don't depend on random minigames to progress the plot like so many other titles. The developers of TD aren't lazy. Everything you do--find, use, and combine objects, search places, question the many quirky inhabitants of this odd little town--makes sense within the context of the game. And the dialogue is quite witty, in the mold of the Phoenix Wright series.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the gameplay is too short--you can't play these games for weeks at a time like you can with the Harvest Moon series. But that's the nature of the whodunit genre. I'm looking forward to more TDs!

2.0 out of 5 stars Fun To Play But Could Have Been Better October 18, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
"Touch Detective 2 1/2", even though it sounds like it's awesome, isn't so great. Since I enjoyed playing the first "Touch Detective", I wanted to play this one, thinking it was going to be good also.

This game has five episodes. I was happy to hear that, except when I began to play I got through two episodes in a day- they were way too easy. The first game was more challenging and I actually got stuck a few times, while in this one I never got stuck. It was completely predictible.

"Touch Detective 2 1/2" has one "enemy" that shows up in each of the episodes. It gets tiring to know who it is that's causing the trouble. All one has to do is figure out what the trouble is. The surprise of figuring out who's the "enemy" vanishes in this game.

There are a new set of characters, although we still have some of the main ones from the last game- Mackenzie (obviously), Funghi, Penelope, Chloe, Cromwell, and a few shopkeepers and skeleton-looking people. Some of the new characters are not as interesting as in the previous game. Some of them are even quite annoying- the dialogue seems to drag on forever.

New locations were added to this game and they are quite great, actually- some of the new investigation places are fun to explore; however, others (not many, though) seem completely pointless. Locations from the previous game that are included are Mackenzie's house (again, obviously), the shopping place and the apartments.

There's a "Bonus Episode", which isn't really an episode because one just goes around collecting information, running errands and participating in games. Again, it's easy and made the game slightly boring.

I gave "Touch Detective 2 1/2" three stars for fun because some of the new locations are fun to explore and the game just keeps one occupied, even when it's uninteresting. Overall, it's two stars because it was too easy to play, which makes it disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Having Another Adventure! January 2, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've always been kind of a fan of Adventure games, ever since I played "The Curse of Monkey Island," as a young child. I haven't actually played very many of them since then, but I have a certain fondness for the MacGyver-esque way they're played. This game really captures the best of what an adventure game is. Very low risk, logic based gameplay. Sometimes you get into zany situations, but the way out of them is always pretty straight forward.

Some gameplay issues: Sometimes I had to walk around in circles talking to different people trying to figure out who I'd failed to interrogate. Also, there are some unresolved plot issues. That could be wishful thinking for a sequel. Also, the difficulty level is pretty low, so if you're sharp and you don't have much to do, this could be a one-nighter.

Regardless, the characters are cute and interesting, and the plot is quirky and kid friendly.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same... January 7, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After playing and enjoying the first Touch Detective, I was quite excited to get my hand on the sequel! I was hoping that this game would deliver more of the surrealist and quirky story, characters, and humor that the original game did, and I wasn't disappointed...

Graphics (score 8/10): Well, the graphics are exactly the same as the first game's visuals. They are cute-looking cartoony-style visuals. Everything is very detailed and crisp with no fuzziness, so it makes it easy to see everything in the environment. Overall, they are quite nice.

Music (score 7/10): The music is pretty good, but not spectacular. The tracks set the tone for each area pretty well (and are nice to listen to while you play), but you probably wouldn't want to own the soundtrack or anything (if a soundtrack actually existed). There are some cute sound effects here and there, but no voice acting.

Characters (score 8/10): Many of the characters from the original game make a return here: Mackenzie the main character who is a self-proclaimed detective, Penelope, her ditzy best friend who loves bananas way too much, and Chloe, her irritable friend who is always trying to be a better detective than her (but fails at it). Oh, and Mackenzie's creepy butler Cromwell also makes a return. If you've played the original, you'll also notice the return of several side characters, but the game also injects some new characters to keep you from getting bored. One significant side character is the "cornstalker" who serves as a recurring antagonist who always steals things. He basically shows up every episode and steals something, which creates a case for Mackenzie to solve; this helps tie episodes together better than the random nature of the original game's story.
