This sequel to underrated Innocent Until Caught sports the same flexible game engine, with a better and longer plot. Intergalactic two-bit thief and failed womanizer Jack T. Ladd is back, but this time you can also choose to play as Ladd's female nemesis and potential love interest, who has her own different path that converges with Jack's near the end. |
The puzzles in Guilty are not as challenging or innovative as those in the first game (there are a lot less items you can combine, for example), although they are still fun to solve. Dialogues and plot also are not as well-written this time around, but the 2 diverging paths that double the game's replayability more than makes up for it. A fun game if you liked the first one, but nothing revolutionary. If you like tongue-in-cheek, "light" sci-fi games, and can stand cheesy dialogues and cliché plot, give this one a try. If not, play the first game, or Beneath a Steel Sky instead.
