Genres: Interactive Story, Adventure

War rages on. During an air raid, 16 year old Noah and his little sister Renie seek shelter in a bunker. There, not only are they protected from the deadly bombardment, but are also at the crossroads of a world between life and death: Silence. When Noah’s sister gets lost in Silence, he is forced to venture into this idyllic yet threatening world to find her. Silence, however, bears its own scars of war and suffering. Dark creatures haunt towns and cities and ravage this once serene place between worlds. Only a small band of rebels stands against the looming menace. Now it is up to the siblings to save Silence and its fantastic inhabitants from impending doom and thus also save their own lives. Join Noah and Renie on their exciting journey through Silence where an emotionally gripping story of contrasts between serenity and danger unfolds. Meet fascinating and likeable characters like Spot, the magical caterpillar who helps Noah and Renie on their way through Silence. And witness when the siblings discover that the only thing that can save them is their love for each other.

Silence bounds from powerful emotion to powerful emotion in its last couple of hours, and there's a sense here that these are the feelings that developer Daedalic wanted to stir the first time around. The story, in fact, ends on a final choice that's a little too close to that of The Whispered World. Despite this, it still works. I saw from a mile away from what was coming, and even so, in the story's final moments, I could only sit there in stunned, thoughtful silence.

A delightful point'n click adventure with lots of deep characters and an interesting plot, decorated with an impressive artistic aspect. It may be too easy, but it's very enjoyable.

9 / 10

Silence: The Whispered World 2 is a magnificent adventure with stunning graphics, great russian adaptation, thoughtful game design and interesting characters, that exciting all your attention. You are worried for Noah, Renie and their friends, who wanted to save another dimension. And this is the best recommendation for touching story about the children, who are trying to hide from the horrors of war in a world of fantastic characters and incredible adventures.

Silence is a gorgeous game to see and hear. While it makes a bold attempt at an emotional and deep storyline, everything falls flat due to a failure to give the player a reason to care about the characters.
