    If you’re not a fan of the original Cartoon Network series, don’t bother with Omniverse 2, as the game is worse than its predecessor. [02/2014, p.59]

    Ben 10: Omniverse 2 is too simple, too short and can’t make it up its mind in the difficulty. With all those con’s, the game will irritate you too much.

    On the topic of being rushed, this game was, to shelves. The combat isn’t fluid, collision detection is spotty, and we frequently got trapped in floors. [Christmas 2013, p83]

    A runner you should run away from
    Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is a completely different game than the original in all of the worst ways..
    no longer is it about environmental puzzles, leveling up characters and hack and slash combat,
    Ominerse 2 is a twitch based runner where you have to switch back and for the between a heavy alien to break through walls, a medium alien that shoots projectiles, and a light alien that runs the fastest and can hope over gaps and walls, and after a few seconds you come to a dead stop to fight a bunch of enemies and do this over and over for 5 hours straight in 6 dull and poorly designed levels.
    There is literally only 2 variants, a ship.. earth.. then back to the ship
    It can be fun reacting to the obstacles coming at you, this is definitely the best part of the game…
    But that’s not saying much as these sections are still garbage
    The biggest offense to this entire game is you are being timed…
    its not enough that you lose health when you run into objects or take damage in combat…
    your health is draining at all times….
    This means that you could do perfect in dodging obstacles and simply just run out of time because you proceed from a fight without waiting for your health to drain and refill halfway up
    and what happens when your life drains?
    you revert back to ben 10,
    this isnt too big of an issue in combat because you can still dodge attacks and kill enemies while the bar fills up…
    but hes helpless in the running sections…
    and to make it even worse, 1 hit and hes dead….
    this makes combat tense, but makes the already cheap running sections that will pop up obstacles without warning sometimes even more cheap…
    I know what youre thinking.. this isn’t that big of a deal..
    and youre only thinking this because I haven’t put the frosting on this crap flavored cake yet..
    Theres no checkpoints.
    If you die anywhere at anytime you start aaaaaallll the way back at the beginning of the level.
    Thankfully you don’t have to redo the fighting, but the fight you died in restarts.. and you have to do all of the runner nonsense again…
    Enemies will however sometimes drop shortcuts or even level tokens to level up your aliens… which really does nothing but give you new moves…
    Which is a shame since the original omniverse actually let you effect characters stats.. and you could freely switch between them at all times..
    you cant do that here.. pick 3 aliens and go…
    why is this game called omniverse 2 anyway?
    This is an entirely different genre of game…
    it has nothing from the original but the license…
    Stay away from this game..
    Even if youre a ben 10 fan..
    stay away..
    I give Ben 10 Omniverse 2
    a 4.5/10

    This game is really not special if you haven't played the old DS Alien Force games, and the only thing that would cause this game to lookThis game is really not special if you haven't played the old DS Alien Force games, and the only thing that would cause this game to look appealing if you compared it to its mediocre, sloppily done predecessors. But if you're a Ben 10 fan who doesn't care for the repetitive gameplay, this is an okay game for you. Full Review »
