Frugal Gamer review Wed, 23 Dec 2009

Mystery Detective 2 on Nintendo DS is the sequel to the original charming adventure/mystery game that combines a cute art-style with some fantastic puzzles and a wild and wacky storyline. Playing as the child detective Mackenzie once again, you'll use the stylus to investigate mysteries, talk to the bizarre townsfolk and stop your nemesis Cornstalker from stealing precious and rare artefacts. With its hilariously off-beat story Mystery Detective 2 is a wonderful example of individual style and satisfying gameplay that can only be found on the Nintendo DS.

With nearly every character returning from the first game, Mystery Detective 2 really replicates the same formula that was such a success in the first game. Playing as Mackenzie, the child detective, you'll be touching objects and recording it in your journal while you investigate the five cases that make up the game. Chloe and Penelope return, along with the slightly odd manservant Cromwell, and together they help (and sometimes) hinder your progress through the cases.
