I was a huge fan of the original and this was a really good sequel. There were numerous differences between the two but in the end I still very satisfied with this sequel. My largest and almost only complaint was that there were too many points of no return considering there are all these collectible items to find. The redemption to this issue though is that you can go directly back to any chapter once cleared and all your upgrades and items are always with you even when starting a whole new playthrough on a different difficulty, making the other difficulties much easier.
The game is great for anyone that was a fan of the original game, but some of the side games although good at breaking up the game play can be a bit aggravating. I really enjoyed the art style and presentation, I think the game is very beautiful and whimsical in a dark theme. The enemies though are a bit uninspiring and some times difficult for the wrong reasons. but overall I enjoyed it and say its worth playing.
