Interesting idea, but lots and lots of dialogue to trawl through

Advantages: using the wii remote in a variety of ways
Disadvantages: lots of dull dialogue, untidy ending
I bought this game a couple of weeks ago as I had read reviews about it in the Nintendo magazine and thought it looked like an engaging game to play - the plot looked interesting and despite having not played the first game on the DS was looking forward to being immersed into the story.
So I started the game. And spent a long time pressing the A button and reading through the endless dialogue.... If you don't like reading endless dialogue then this game is not for you, and I must admit that it got very, very tedious, especially if you're going through a large lot of talking and you need to stop playing for any reason - you can't save the game in the middle of them chatting which can be very frustrating and i found myself just rushing through these scenes to be able to save the game.
Which in any other game would be a problem as you might miss vital information, but this game tells you if you're going the wrong way, or you've forgotten to do something so it doesn't really matter, plus at the end of every chapter you have to answer easy questions on whats happened so you never really have to remember much!
There were some nice little touches, like the way the wii remote is used to solve some of the puzzles, some of which are harder than others so these little gems sometimes made up for the monotonous A button pushing.
The ending, for me, was a little lack-lustre as I feel that many of the little side-plots weren't tied up (maybe this is so they can use them in future games, I don't know) and I found that a little frustrating.
The graphics were good, pretty cartoon-like and the game was easy to pick up.
Summary: I enjoyed the game but wouldn't go out of my way to convince people to buy it at full price...
