Web of Deceit: Deadly Sands continues nicely from the end of the previous game although it is not a requirement to play the first game first before enjoying this one. There are enough thrills to keep the game exciting most of the time; the story is also very compelling on its own and you probably going to get hooked right from the opening cutscene.
Web of Deceit 2 features some of the top-notch cutscenes with epic animations and remarkable soundtracks. The graphics might be a little too brownish for some people but they are very beautiful to look at the quality is superb! Moreover, the game involves some good live acting which is pretty rare for a HOPA game like this – the character’s voices are spot-on and well-synced.
What seems to be the major problem with this game though, is the lack of challenge in the adventure part of the game. The items you picked up are likely to be used in the next few minutes. The Hidden Object scenes are well made, but still, pretty easy to complete. Luckily, the puzzles are a bit more challenging – there are a few new and cool ones but some of them can be a lot smarter. As for the Extras, Web of Deceit: Deadly Sands has all that is needed for a Collector’s Edition; an incredibly useful map to avoid backtracking, nice poster collectibles, a variety of achievements and other typical extras that we come to expect from a good CE game.
