Blood of the Cybermen

I finished this in about half of the time as the Dalek episode. The puzzles were pretty straightforward and there were few bugs (or so it seems) that the last game.

What did the rest of you think?

Re: Blood of the Cybermen

Just finished playing it, it did seem a bit shorter but I think that it worked out at roughly the same length. One thing I noticed was there was no reference to the alt-world where these cybermen should have come from but instead a number of small references to Mondos, where the original cybermen came from. Nothing major just in the collectable cards, trivia things, what have you. Now that we can have the Daleks show up whenever we want with the race reborn are they trying to do the same thing with the cybermen?
In terms of the game, it's much the same as the last, no better no worse, though I did get stuck for several frustrating minutes near the cybermat that guards the laptop. I won't spoil anything but I'm sure I tried the solution at least twice and it wouyldn't work leaving me scurrying around, thinking I was going about it the wrong way.

P.S Sorry for double posting

Did you notice the changed symbol? - I guess to indicate that those Cybermen are different from the Alt universe ones.

Re: Blood of the Cybermen

Well since I can'ty even get the first game to work I'll probably give this a miss.

Shame really. I keep meaning to maybe uninstall the game and try again, I did impatiently not do the system check before hand so maybe I'm just missing something really simple.

I didn't actually, guess that was a bit more starring me in the face rather than the tiny trivia things that you can find around.

What does the new Cyberman symbol look like?

Re: Blood of the Cybermen

The continuity is a little awkward in this story. Amy meets the Cybermen here, but in The Pandorica Opens, she doesn't know what they are. What gives?

Obviously these Cybermen got sucked into a crack.

Or alternatively, maybe something caused Amy to lose her memories of this particular adventure?

Or maybe it's pointless to look for continuity where no one intended to put it?

Maybe to some. I, however, am among those who rather like their continuity, as you've no doubt guessed. This error is to noticeable to just ignore IMHO.

Just a guess here and I could be wrong, but don't all the games take part after the series and thus the issue you have having EJA is a kin to creating a mountain out of a mole hill.

Re: Blood of the Cybermen

I'm not quite with you, Dimesdan. How does these stories taking place after Series 5 help the issue? Besides, they can't be after Series 5, because Rory isn't with them.
