    We Were Here Too is a cool co-op puzzle game, that challenges you to escape from a room by communicating well. Many puzzles feel the same, so the replay value of this game is not very high.

    We Were Here Too has some nice puzzles which definitely pushes you and your friend to the limits. It just feels almost like you are in a real escape room. However, the game lacks user feedback and has no replay value. Be prepared.

    In the end, what I wanted from this title was more; I wanted to do more puzzles in this world, in this unique way, and that’s exactly what We Were Here Too delivers on.

    The principal concept of We Were Here Too — having to communicate carefully with a partner — is a fantastic addition to a puzzle title. The in-game chat works excellently and limiting the walkie-talkie to half-duplex forces one player to speak at a time, which can make for incredibly hectic situations. The title is well thought through, but even an initial run is relatively short. However, puzzle fans will be entertained.

    A short but interesting co-op survival puzzle, focused on player communication, that will take one afternoon of your free time but even with different endings doesn’t have replay value.

    We Were Here Too delivers a really successful escape-room experience. It contains some challenging riddles and wonderful environment. But it very short (1.5~ hours) and the lack of replicability is recognized. But hey, it's still cheaper and long-lasting than a real escape room.

    Working together with a partner to overcome obstacles is a great core concept at the heart of We Were Here Too, though as a castle escape game it isn’t particularly noteworthy beyond that.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A definite improvement from the first game, and a lot harder puzzles than it as well, We Were Here Too is another fantastic game. It expands on the minimal story from the first game, and you can slowly piece together what went down in the castle. I will admit, you do have to read into the game to find the story (at least for game 1 and 2), but it all connects together nicely. Expand

    ITALIAN:
    Secondo capitolo, questa volta a pagamento, di We Were Here. Molto simile al primo in molti aspetti ma un po' più dettagliato e complesso.

    AUDIO E GRAFICA:
    Da questo punto di vista è identico al primo. La grafica ha uno stile unico, risultando realistica ma anche low poly, a cui si aggiunge un'illuminazione ottima.
    Il comparto audio invece vede un'ottima colonna sonora (specialmente in alcune fasi del gioco) e un doppiaggio del "master" (ogni tanto c'è una voce che parla) buono ma solo in lingua inglese e senza sottotitoli (che in questo gioco però è un problema trascurabile).

    GAMEPLAY:
    Anche qui il gioco è estremamente simile al primo capitolo ma più lineare. Nel gioco originale, soprattutto all'inizio, tutti gli enigmi (almeno per un giocatore) sono celati nella stessa stanza mentre qui ci si sposta sempre una volta risolto un enigma.
    Gli enigmi sono forse un po' più complessi del primo capitolo e il gioco in generale risulta un po' più lungo.

    STORIA:
    Anche la storia risulta molto simile, con i due protagonisti che durante una tempesta di neve si rifugiano in un antico castello abbandonato, si dividono e devono riuscire ad uscirne.
    A differenza del primo capitolo però sono presenti due finali diversi, di cui uno realizzabile solo se lungo l'intero gioco sono state azionate tutte le leve con una piccola lampadina sopra.

    In conclusione, il gioco è davvero interessante ma dura poco (in una sera si può finire, massimo in due) e per quello che costa non è il massimo, visto che non ha quasi rigiocabilità.
    Per i giocatori su PC avviso che il gioco funziona anche via LAN.
    Se invece foste semplicemente interessati a provare un gioco di questo tipo vi consiglio di iniziare dal primo capitolo, qualitativamente quasi uguale ma free to play.

    VOTO: 8.5/10

We had fun playing it, but it ended just when we really started getting into it. It's way too short and the puzzles become a chore after you figure out what you need to do.

    Some books laid out through the game try to provide some insight into the story, but the handwriting is barely readable to bother with it.

    We still had some fun, though.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. We loved the first game and were excited to try the sequel and hopefully find out some back story but sadly this game just isn't like the first one. There is no story or at least none from as far as we got, and any writing is impossible and too messy to read. The puzzles are fun in theory but hard to communicate and not actually puzzles, it's mostly just based on how well you can describe something, they don't take any critical thinking. We spent over an hour trying to do the maze, it got to the point where we would get the farthest by just not speaking and guessing which isn't the point of the game. Sometimes I would watch my friend step on the button but the game wouldn't register it and start the puzzle over anyways. No matter how many times we ran through it we couldn't get it so we never got to finish the game. Expand
