    Changes from the US version apart from calling the 'Diabolic Cube' 'Pandora's Box'?

    Guess so, there have been single language French and Italian versions as well - suppose it could be like Cooking Guide where there's not enough room on the chosen cart size for an audio track in each language so they produce single language versions for each country.

    IMO this is not as good as the first. the puzzles seem to be easier, and the story shorter. Maybe if you hadn't played the first one the expectation would not have been so great. [​IMG]

    a good game albeit almost the same as the first one just a little changes to titles of the puzzles (like gathering puzzle pieces etc)... check it out, its pretty good

    I wonder why the Americans don't know the word pandoras box so that they have to rename it to stupid diabolic box? Can any American explain this lack of cultural knowledge?

    i can explain it...its because here in the US people like to baby everyone now and everything has to get super child proofed or else people complain about a stupid thing like the name Pandora's Box i know it sounds really dumb but thats pretty much the whole reason behind it. Also why do the european version get such a crappy box art?

    They're probably terrified that people would see a girls name in the title and think it was a game for girls - see the way they edit the American Kirby box art to give him a menacing scowl rather than a cheery grin.

    I hope the Dutch version will get dumped. I beat the US version of this game, but I want to play it in my own language. Chances may be slim though... I think the Dutch version of the first game never got dumped either.

    Dutch games have always been dumped (if there was one), so I suppose that PL gets dumped for sure.
