    Edna and Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes is deep, dark and twisted. If that's your thing, this is your game.

    A lovely interactive story that enchants with funny dialogues and profound backgound.

    Witty, and with a wink and nod to the limitations of the point and click style adventure genre Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes gives gamers an adult experience while providing the necessary cover for a teen rating. Recommended for old school gamers looking for a reminder of the past, or those who enjoy quirky plots.

    It's not just a really good adventure game, it's got something to tell about the innocence of a child and the human trait to ignore inconvenient truths. It's more than just entertainment, it's art.

    The sequel of Edna and Harvey: The Breakout again is a cool mix out of crazy puzzles and dialogues, black humor and a pretty good sense of humor and sarcasm. Harvey's New Eyes is even a bit better than the good Edna-adventure before. With Harvey's New Eyes Daedalic proves that they can increase the quality of their even very good games before due to the funny conversations, the bizarre characters and even their deaths.

    A great journey through a dark story, where reality, madness and imagination is sometimes confusing. Some issues lower the quality of the experience, but it still is one of the best graphic adventure games we've played this year and every fan should try.

    Just twisted and demented enough to be recommendable.

    One of the most twisted and dark games you will ever encounter. It has everything from funny dialogues to the most innocent looking protagonist in a game ever.

    You don't need to have played the first Edna & Harvey :The Breakout to enjoy this sequel. It's a dark humor sweet wrapped in point & click paper, it's solid, and original.

    Harvey's New Eyes is a crazy adventure developed by Daedalic that introduces a new character in the mad world of Edna&Harvey. Humorous and Funny, it features pretty basic puzzles and situations.

    Harvey's New Eyes is ridiculously easy to beat, but fun, not quite beautiful, but very stylish, never gets boring, but goes out with a whimper.

    The first Edna & Harvey was weird, unique and original. The second attempted to be more weird, unique and original, but went too far and overdid it. Furthermore, one can’t ignore the complete lack of challenge and it’s a shame really, as there were some amazing ideas here…[December 2012]

    For those who like their adventures on the darker, twisted - but still humorous side, Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes might just tickle your fancy. A worthy successor to the original.

    Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes isn't for everyone. The humor won't tickle everyone's funny bones, and the presentation of both the audio and graphical standpoints leaves something to be desired — despite some of the good things it does.

    Another entertaining game for those who can't get enough of the wacky blue plush rabbit, Harvey's New Eyes simplifies the Edna & Harvey experience but is slightly less fun to play as a result.

    Despite serious gameplay and production issues, Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes is still a memorable and enjoyable game.

    Edna and Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes is an odd game with an even odder sense of humour. There's a definite Python-esque feel to its jokes, with some genuine laugh-out-loud moments that you won't see coming. Unfortunately, it's held back by some poor puzzle design that dragged out the story longer than it needs to. It's still worth playing, but these flaws really hold it back from being anything more than a one-time playthrough.

    Lilli's cute flavor of insanity makes her an intriguing character to play as, but she can't carry the plot of Harvey's New Eyes alone. The rest of the cast is so underdeveloped, the environments you explore so banal and uninteresting looking, that it's hard to appreciate Lilli's character or the smart puzzle design.

    So much of what makes the game a repugnant mess in the opening soon makes sense by the end of chapter one, but many problems introduced at the start never fade away.

    Guys, this is a fantastic point and click and game. Great story, characters, graphics, music, atmosphere, creative puzzles, tons of dark jokes, everything is perfect in this little adventure. Deadlic entertainment showed us once more, that they are the best this genre. Full Review »

    I love this game. It has a good and interesting story, contains a lot of dark humor and has a bunch of cool (and solvable) puzzles. I Highly recommend this game to all adventure fans out there. Full Review »

    Massive step up from the previous game. The original had you running around an enormous building no idea if one thing or another pertains to your task, let alone what your task was. This time the clues are better the area is concise and the logic makes more sense (for an adventure game). On top of that the quality art, audio, and design is improved. Through the entire game play I had only one bug where the dialog muted, which was easily fixed in the settings.

    The story is also improved, it's the continuation of one of the endings from the previous game. The humor is darker but is has a levity about it that makes it more enjoyable. The endings were interesting but they sadly rob some of the value in what you were doing. It makes it seem like everything that happened did not have to happen.

    Still though this sequel is much better than the original, you may just want to skip the original all together.
