Demian's Thoughts:

This book is by the same team of authors that created the first book, and it shares many of its characteristics: low internal consistency compensated for by good layout and interesting choices and puzzles. There's a maze, a rebus, a "find the errors" page, and even a rather tricky logic test (see page 49). What makes this an improvement over the first book is the plot, which is very strange and often rather amusing, featuring eccentric alien creatures and bizarre megalomaniacs. This is my favorite entry in the series so far thanks to its mix of originality of plot and quality of game design.
