What is Runaway 2 like? I have the first but never played it. If the sequel is good I might grab it and play them both

I just played some of this, its pretty good so far.

Lots of good jokes and it seems like they spiced it up a tad. The humor seems a bit more violent and "adult" and less kiddy than the last few episodes (when max is talking to the president, look at the sign in the background ). And they switched things up a bit by having a small intro sequence this time.

So far so good. This is probably the best one yet.

It should be the best. Word is they brought in Chuck Jordan (Man behind Curse of Monkey Island's hilarious dialog) for Episodes 4-6.

I haven't played it yet. I'm saving it for the weekend.

Both are great classic adventures like Lucasarts used to do them. Wonderful hand-drawn backgrounds and pre-rendered characters, great music and story with tons of funny dialogues.

I haven't finish Runaway 2 yet but I like it already better than the first one. It's very enjoyable, funny adventure game.

I better give them a go then. What res do they run at? I don't like LCD scaling so I'll probably have to hook up my CRT to my backup rig.

It uses a fixed 1024x768 resolution but it nevertheless looks great on my 24" 1920x1200 wide-screen LCD. No artefacts visible.

If you only plan on playing one of the two Runaways, play the second one. You don't need to know anything about the original to enjoy it and the sequel it just much more polished and fun.

I plan to play both. I have the first (bought it on sale at EB ages ago). Problem is sourcing the second. It's kinda rare around these parts. I'll have to check Direct2Drive and the like.
