    The formula that Mr. Vogel and Co. have mastered here is, as before, how to combine fast-paced exploration with smart surprises that keep you guessing. Do yourself a favor and try this game, because as they say in Arkansas, "It's the gameplay, stupid."
  2. With at least 40 hours of original, engaging role-playing packed into its relatively tiny install, Geneforge 2, like the previous Spiderweb games, is probably the best twenty-five bucks an RPG fiend can spend. [Feb 2004, p.85]
  3. Graphics aside, Geneforge 2 is a terrific game to start with if you're fairly new to the RPG genre. It's easy to just dive in and start playing, and all the help you need is built into the interface - just a mouse-click away at all times. And the game's virtually bug-free. [Apr 2004, p.80]

    Not an amazing game, but its good for the genre and a positive game, certainly. I liked it but I was not swept off my feet.

    It's a good game, but if you haven't already, play Geneforge 1 before this game, it's ALOT more fun. Though this game's pretty fun aswell.It's a good game, but if you haven't already, play Geneforge 1 before this game, it's ALOT more fun. Though this game's pretty fun aswell. Maybe it's me getting tired of RPGs as this game's very similar to Geneforge 1,
    I can see a new gamer enjoying this very much.
