After the events in Deponia, Rufus came to his senses. He's grown prudent, amicable, kind and caring, without any intention to cause major mayhem just to further his own selfish ends. It seems he is far from chaining himself to flaming saw blades, training torpedo-dolphins or plundering platypus nests. Or is he? Eventually, it's a flaming saw blade that “persuades” Goal to stay on Deponia once more, splitting her personality into three parts in the process, each aspect of her consciousness stored to a different cartridge.So it's up to Rufus and his remarkable charm to persuade Goal's personalities to fuse into one again, make his way to Elysium with her and save Deponia from certain Chaos while he's at it. Join Rufus on his way through the vast area of the Floating Black Market, meet new, bizarre characters and reunite with familiar faces.
The second adventure on Deponia tells a unique, self contained story playable without further knowledge of the first installment. Challenging puzzles, elaborate dialogues and unique wacky humor ensure a truly hilarious gaming experience. Fans of the first game will discover new aspects of familiar characters' backgrounds and have many questions answered.

Deponia 2: Chaos on Deponia is in a word amazing. The best point & click adventure game I've played, beating Monkey Island and Broken Sword games, seriously.
Star of the game is once again Rufus, egoistical jerk who always has some scatter brained plan for everything and of course people get hurt in the progress. Now the love interest, Elysian girl named Goal, has much biggerread more part to play, she's not just asleep most of the time. The first big mission is basically persuading Goal's 3 different personalities and the end of the mission a bit heartbreaking not spoiling too much though.
Story revolves around Rufus trying to fix Goal and get to Elysium, this place high above in the sky, to tell that Deponia is inhabited and not to blow it up. You also discover some interesting things about Elysium which makes you question a bit that are the bad guys really bad guys, and what would really be best for everyone. If Rufus really trying to do the right thing?
The biggest complain I had with the first game was the ending, that was the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars, but now that's not the case, ending just left me graving for more, like with the first game, but now it was satisfying too. Deponia ended just as things got really interesting, but Deponia 2 starts off interesting and hilarious keeping that feeling all the way through game.
They do a fairly good job explaining what happened in Deponia in the beginning of the game, but I still really recommend playing the first one because you just won't know these characters as well and there are some hilarious references to Deponia, and it's really good game too.
Gameplay is, interestingly, actually improved from Deponia and other point & click games. It still has the same basics, you mix some crazy stuff you find and try to go forward, but this time there are some extras. You need to sometimes take what people say literally and do what they say, there are some easter eggs and puzzles sometimes evolve around these things, like having to adjust your settings from menu screen. These things might seem like minor extras, but they still kind of set a standard for other point & click games to try and evolve.
Puzzles are awesome, one of the best, if not the best that I've ever played. They're logical... well they're logical in their own silly, quirky way. For example, you need to get a fish from fisherman, paint it black and white like a zebra, put a platypus egg to its mouth and shock the fish alive with this space time altering machine that you use later to time travel and later the egg hatches into a platypus that eats the fish. It makes sense... really, it does.
And the best for last, humor. Humor is top notch, there are constantly coming real laugh out loud moments, like this hamburger restaurant called Mc Thulhu(obvious reference McDonalds and Chtulhu) which is run by an interesting fella who calls customers sacrifices and tries to get people step on some kind of trap door, he also seems to talk to some dark overlord in his basement who runs the shop :D There also are some serious moments and they're very well done.
As for the bad things, nothing big except typo's. It doesn't make the game worse and there aren't that much of them, but it still gives away this unprofessional feeling. Someone clearly didn's spell check this one thoroughly. This is a minor complain though and could be fixed with a patch.
Bottom line, awesome game. Makes some real improvements over the first one in terms of story and characters, and brings some minor new things to the whole p&c genre. As I said in Deponia review, if you like point & click games, there's no reason to pass Deponia, but now I say, if you like games at all, you definitely should play Deponia 2, it's just that amazing.

I just finished the game and boy was it a fun ride. I would liken it to Monkey Island 2, where you have such a big open world to explore, vastly larger than the first game and you can solve the puzzles in whatever order you choose which is nice when you're stuck on one. There was one puzzle in particular which is a bit cheeky because it's kind of an interface joke, but other thanread more that, the puzzles weren't particularly mind-bending. The story has me intrigued and I can't wait to play part 3!

"professional" reviews of this game make me sad, it really shows that if a classic gem like Monkey Island came out today it would flop. If you are a fan of classic Lucas Arts or Sierra adventure game then this trilogy should be an insta-buy. Unfortunately there is a optimization issue, meaning that the game has a tendency to lag or crash even though it is not particularly graphicallyread more demanding. So to summarize, this series is on par with the classic adventure greats with a few issues holding it back from a full 5 star score.
