<a href=http://www.gametunnel.com>Game Tunnel</a> posted an extremely <a href=http://www.gametunnel.com/html/reviews-80.html>positive review</a> of <a href=http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/geneforge2/index.html>Geneforge 2</a>, giving it <b>9 out of 10</b>
<br>
<br>
<blockquote>Geneforge 2 is an amazingly detailed RPG, where the story evolves as you play, and your actions and words can seemingly affect everything. With multiple paths to most objectives, this game has quite a bit of variety.
<br>
<br>
And how you interact with others is important. People will remember your words and actions. If you respond unfavorably to someone, that person and possibly his/her people will all look down on you. Similarly, favorable actions on your part will also be remembered. Since this dynamic exists in Geneforge 2, it is possible to choose sides, and with four different sides that have four different agendas, joining one might cause problems with the others. For instance, if you decide to reject your Shaper training and background, you can bet that the Shapers won't be too pleased with you. It is even possible to play through the game completely without even joining one of the factions.

The state of insanity.
Yeah, the game definitely kicked the first ones ass and I loved the first one. Anyone out there who hasn't tried it definitely should. Cool thing about it is that you don't have to play the first one to enjoy the second one. Although I do recommend the first one as well since it's still a wonderful game in it's own right. Hell, I recommend all their RPGs. Avernum 3 really kicks ass too.

Felt like just more of the same to me. Never even finished it, went as far as Rising/Western March/Magus Complex which I think just leaves the Takers corner of the world.

Playing the first one gave me the sense of exploring a new world. With the sequel I pretty much knew what to expect both in terms of "shaper culture" and familiarity with his design style.
