Book-of-Unwritten-Tales-2

Fantasy games and point and click games are a match made in heaven. I do not mean stuff like Telltale’s Game of Thrones, but rather high fantasy. That said, a humorous take on the genre is also good.  The book of Unwritten tales was a great game that took the fantasy genre on its head and made it a fun experience.  It had well developed characters and plots and great interactivity that allowed for a unique gaming experience.

Now years later, Nordic Games has brought The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 to Wii U and the result is amazing. The game improves on the original in almost every way. The graphics are better, the controls are more intuitive and the story is just bonkers. Imagine the most epic story, worthy of Lord of the Rings, then imagine it turned on its head and mocked to hell and back. That comes somewhat close. The protagonists have new goals to achieve and while this is a parody of fantasy games, their journeys are worth following. The game is extremely well written and plotted and the characters are believable despite the setting. The game is hilarious and I have to admit that I laughed out loud so many times that I lost count.

The game controls well and is much more intuitive than the first game was. The visuals shine far better as well and the result is amazing. We have a game that is a big improvement on an already great original. The music is also great and really helps get you into the game. I would say that this game has some of the best video game music that I have heard all year.

Nordic Games has done a great job with bringing this game to Wii U and they deserve a lot of praise for that. This is a great port and plays to the Wii U’s strengths. All in all, I have to recommend this game for anyone with a Wii U, who enjoys point and click games. You will not regret getting it.
