About this gameMuch like the remake of Case 1, Case 2 gets a better presentation. Updated graphics, full voice acting, and extended story make this an "official" version in the series storyline.

AGS Panel Review
"This remake lives up to the quality Grundislav has been turning out since Ben Jordan Case 4: Better visuals, greatly improved puzzle design and a wonderful musical score that compliments the competent, if sometimes fuzzy, voice acting. The only real drawback is the rather short length of the game, though when you consider it has been extended and improved greatly over the original, Case 2 Deluxe is a gem that fits in the crown of the Ben Jordan series."
7 people commented on this game (newest first):
What I didn't like:
- lacks the more cinematic cutscenes that other BJ games have - especially the opening is really modest
- both Annie as well as her house are boring and unlikable - the complete opposite of all other locations and characters
- the sunken galleon appearing in this kind of setting came off a bit as a joke, and I'm not sure if that was completely intentional.
However, the weakest spots of the game are connected to Bombay Beach:
- the unclear walking paths - you should be given more direction where you can go
- the song-writing puzzle - which requires the player to somehow guess he has to look the second time at every possible object in the neighborhood
Thankfully, the game offers a really solid amount of content, so the good stuff totally overweighs these few less enjoyable bits
So at this moment there are 7 games all to high standard, I eagerly wait to see one more Ben Jordan game ;)
