  • Summary: Embark on round 2. CoD promises to be even crazier than the first game and quickly puts the player under its spell. After the events on Deponia, it appears that Rufus came to his senses.

    Chaos on Deponia continues the beautiful story of Deponia. The game brings nothing new to the genre, however it has great and funny characters, nice riddles and a fantastic atmosphere. Chaos on Deponia shows how an adventure game should be made.

    Chaos on Deponia is not an ideal adventure game, but it is totally worthy of being called a true successor to Monkey Island.

    Chaos on Deponia is indeed an exciting adventure, full of idiotic dialogues and situations, long running and with great graphics.

    Chaos on Deponia is so much better than its predecessor in almost every aspect. The story starts to be really intriguing, the main character has grown and puzzles are well thought and a lot of fun to solve.

    The puzzles are tough enough that you probably won't figure them out right away, but they're not so tough that they'll stump you for days at a time, either. For me, that's exactly where I want the difficulty of an adventure to be, and combined with the humor of the game, it makes Chaos on Deponia an easy game to recommend.

    It's guaranteed to provide you with a few good belly laughs, plus some genuine brain teasers as well.

    It's not bad, but compared to its predecessor, and to other Daedalic adventures in general, it's not really all that good, either.

The storyline is great, and the writing is fantastic. The puzzles are also much better than Deponia, which had a few puzzles that were basically impossible without a walkthrough - there was still a few ridiculous puzzles, but not nearly as many. My only other complaint is that, like Deponia, the ending feels rushed and unresolved. Hopefully the final game in the trilogy will not be like that. I don't think I'd have paid $20 for this, but I don't regret paying $10 for it, and at $5 it would be a must-buy. Expand

    Chaos on Deponia is the second game in 3 part series. The first game was amazing too, but not nearly at this level
    Not spoiling too much,(just don't read if you haven't played the first Deponia) star of Deponia 2 is once again Rufus, egoistical jerk who always has some scatter brained plan for everything and of course people get hurt in the process. He lives in a planet called Deponia, this giant garbarge pile where humans, or human like creatures live. Rufus is trying to get to Elysium, this place high above in the sky. Another big character is Goal, the love interest, and unlike in first game, this time she's not asleep for the majority of the game, only in the beginning as you try to assemble her mind back together. Both are great characters and really funny in their own way. Rufus is always trying to hit on Goal but she doesn't seem to be responsive, and Goal's mind is split in 3 parts and all of the parts have great personalities and you get to know her better as a whole when you try to persuade all of the parts and get to Elysium to tell them that Deponia is inhabitent and not to blow it up.
    Story takes couple of nice turns and leaves in a nice cliffhanger while giving satisfying ending. At some point you learn something aboyt Elysium, which might make you question a bit is Rufus really trying to do the right thing when he's trying to stop the supposedly bad guy and stop Deponia from exploding, and what does Rufus himself really want?
    Gameplay is standard, if you've played point & click games you'll know and if you haven't, it's not that hard to catch on. You talk to lots of colorful characters to gain information, and collect and combine all sorts of weird stuff from your inventory to progress forward.
    Puzzles in this game are top notch, best I've ever played. They're logical, they're challenging but not on impossible level but you still need to think and really listen to the characters. Sometimes there aren't even any hints to what you should do, not at least verbally because those puzzles are explained a little differently and they can get challenging.
    Humor is also one of the best in any game I've ever played. There's constantly coming real laugh out loud moments (Mc Thulhu restaurant was the best part).
    I played the game with English voice acting which was superb. I've heard that some previous Daedalic games haven't had that great English translation and many jokes have been lost from German version, but I don't think that's the case here, about every joke hits the mark and everything is completely understandable.
    Only bad thing I can say are the typo's, there aren't that much of them but they're noticeable. Now, I probably misspelled something in this review too as my native language isn't English, and neither is for the guys who made the game, Daedalic Entertainment, but those typo's still give away a bit unprofessional feeling and remind me that this is indeed an indie game. This doesn't make the game worse in any way and if you play it with English voice over and your first language is English, you most likely won't even read subtitles and the typo's are just a letter here and there, just pointing out.
    All and all, awesome game. This is definitely the best game in 2012 that I've played and new king of point & click games in my list. Can't wait for Deponia 3.

AlthoughChaos on Deponia is a solid point-and-click adventure. It has interesting puzzles, plenty hilarious moments and memorable characters. Although some puzzles and a lot of item interactions are illogical, but they are used for comical effect and the game itself makes fun of it.
    The only serious flaw for me is that there are some very mediocre and cringeworthy jokes that spoil overall quiet funny experience.

    "Chaos on Deponia" is the second point-and-click game in Deponia series. It features a goofy protagonist, Rufus. He still lives on a garbage"Chaos on Deponia" is the second point-and-click game in Deponia series. It features a goofy protagonist, Rufus. He still lives on a garbage filled planet Deponia, from which he always plans to escape. Rufus is a walking disaster. You can expect water to catch fire when Rufus is around. There is something about smart mouthed Rufus that reminds us of Guybrush Threepwood, classic point-and-click hero.

    PROS:
    - Pretty and colorful cartoon graphics.
    - Humour: edgy, sarcastic, sometimes dark.
    - Good voice acting.
    - Decent story: with love, deception, mystery and revolution.
    - Balanced difficulty.
    - Cool locations.
    - Interesting characters (Bozo, Toni, Goal, The Revolutionists).
    - Classic point-and-click feel.

    MEH:
    - You get to visit some locations quite often, which makes background music somewhat annoying.
    - Some animations are sort of lazy. But that's to be expected from an Indie game with limited budget.

    CONS:
    - Some puzzles are not so intuitive, you may require walkthrough (I had to use it about 4 times).

    If you enjoy classic adventure games, "Chaos on Deponia" is just for you. It's not a masterpiece, but is good and you won't regret spending 10 hours to complete it.
