Got it, beat it, reviewed it. The story is surprisingly well done, and there are enough twists to keep things interesting. I like how this was treated as a standalone title, despite it being a sequel. If you haven't played the first game, you won't miss out on a major plot point. The pacing is really good, too; you'll never feel too bogged down by the puzzles, and there's always some new clue or revelation just a few challenges away. The voice acting and animated cutscenes(including a brief but badass swordfight) are pretty damned good, too. The soundtrack steals the show, though. Whoever did the instrumentals for this game needs to come back for the next title.
I'm still in the process of getting a 100% completion, but I can honestly say that this is the best DS game of the summer. At least, until Scribblenauts comes out...

I'm interested in seeing how it compares to the first one, where I did feel like I got bogged down by all the puzzles. I should have my hands on it tomorrow, although who knows when I'll actually get to start playing it.
