I heard good things about this on the bombcast and at the price of £2.55 for both games its pretty enticing.

But I really don't like puzzles, so should I just do it for the story?

The puzzles are the third thing I come for in Puzzle Agent, behind humour and story. If you hate puzzles that much, you can just keep guessing until you get the right answer and not pay attention to your rating. For £2.50, I'd say definitely go for it.

The puzzles are bad and poorly explained anyway, the story is the only thing that makes the game worth playing. I only failed one puzzle one time and that was because they expected me to know the value of some US coins (write the value next time you do a coin puzzle Telltale, not everyone playing your game is from the US).

I bought it because I got an extreme Twin Peaks vibe from it. The first few puzzles were a bit weird....

@Jimbo: Oh I'd fight you about that sir. I'd lose, cry, and then out of pity you would say puzzle agent is ok just to make me stop crying, because it's pathetic seeing a man cry. Or maybe you'd just laugh at me.

Either way Puzzle Agent is a humorous little 2 hour puzzle dispensary thing (if you breeze through the main quest puzzles) with a unique vibe, and well worth a couple bucks, but if its only story you're after I'd say go ahead and watch the puzzle agent 2 quick look, if you're not a spoilerphobe that is (although the quick look doesn't spoil most of the weird moments that happen in the first game, at least if you stop around the time they talk to the Inn lady) and see if it's the kind of thing you're interested in.

Puzzle Agent is good for the story. Puzzles are repetitive, confusing and almost optional at times but the athmosphere is fun, characters are quirky and I enjoyed playing it straight through. From one to another.
