    I lapped up all the skulking, whispering skullduggery and a few of the plot twists caught me by surprise. I can't wait for more.

    The puzzles, while not all of them were hard, they were intriguing and fun. As a person who loves mythology, I thoroughly enjoyed the maze puzzle. There are plenty of things I would have done differently but the fun of the game is to progress even when you fail. I'm looking forward to the next episode when it releases.

    For some reasons the second episode breaks some promises made by the developers, but still keeps the intrigue.

    The interest within the argument in this second episode, Hide and Seek, descends in comparison to the first one. The weight of the story relies more in the puzzles and riddles than in the really interesting part of the game: the historical and distinguished guests.

    The mix of story-driven game, history and RPG gameplay elements is working pretty well but The Council Episode 2: Hide and Seek is never surprising nor impressive, for it is riveted to its base formula.

    Even the high-fidelity visuals are marred by an inconsistent framerate and terrible animations and transitions.

It’s a great murder mystery to solve and the use of your investigation skills is something I thoroughly enjoyed. The Bible references did seem to drag on for 20 minutes or so until I figured out the riddles and puzzles, but all in all it’s a good addition to the series. Expand
