I wanted to like this game. I really, really did. But even though the music was pleasant, the graphics slightly improved and the puzzles slightly more challenging, I just couldn't get past the story.
Don't get me wrong, I kind of liked the idea of the Lunacy device in the woods, but it didn't seem to go anywhere. I was expecting it to be the source of madness, maybe the Hidden People and Astronauts not really being there at all, but rather side-effects of Nelson losing his mind. But instead it seemed to turn into a cookie-cutter government cover up story. At least all the loose-ends seemed to wrap up neatly by the time it was over.
That being said, the dialogue was still pretty humorous with some darn good one-liners thrown in (Kitimat Incident, anyone?), but overall it just wasn't enough.
