Critic Reviews for The Council - Episode 2: Hide and Seek

I really don't have much else to say. Episode 2 of The Council somehow manages to be worse than the first, despite adding some great puzzle design onto the already impressive narrative gameplay. I suppose if you've plunked down the price for the whole season you may as well play through it, and in that case, I'll see you when the third episode releases and I have to build up the courage to enter into this world that is becoming increasingly less interesting.

The Council: Episode 2 - Hide and Seek shifts the focus from balanced gameplay of the first part to investigations and puzzles, and pushing political intrigues and communication with famous historical figures to the third place. Variability in the beginning of Hide and Seek impressed us, but ending was weaker than expected.

Despite a small handful of flaws, The Council Episode Two: Hide and Seek places an exclamation point on one of the cleverest narrative adventure games on the market.

The Council Episode Two brings a lot to the excellent first episode, but some of its experiments don't pay out like they should have. The story is on point, but the puzzles needed a little more work.

The Council Episode 2: Hide and Seek does a terrific job of building more intrigue for its fascinating story.

After the strong start with The Mad Ones, I can't help but feel disappointed with Hide and Seek.
