  1. The visual style and animations, brilliant level design and well thought out puzzles equate to an overall gem of an Xbox Live Arcade game.
  2. 88
    My only other complaint I have with the game is that it doesn't add anything new.
  3. Exit 2 is as nicely presented here as it was on the PSP, and it’s the perfect fodder for the Xbox Live arcade.
  4. Exit 2 establishes a personality for itself without a story, a romance subplot, or a robust class tree. It’s just a guy, his coffee, and a whole lot of puzzles, but hey, turns out that’s really all you need.
  5. 65
    Exit 2 doesn't feel like a sequel as much as more levels with a few added twists. All of the issues from the original are back: The controls are awkward. The pacing is horrid. The AI needs work. But hey, at least a good number of the puzzles are interesting and there are a lot of them.
  6. It all moves at such a slow pace that there's no feeling of excitement or achievement in finishing a level. [May 2009, p.84]
  7. A disappointing outing from Mr Esc and his associates, as we’ll be expecting something very different for the next installment.

    i was a huge fan of the first game, finished all 100 levels with a perfect store and most of the additional 100 downloadable levels. exit 2 isi was a huge fan of the first game, finished all 100 levels with a perfect store and most of the additional 100 downloadable levels. exit 2 is a brilliant update. the graphics are mostly the same but receive a mild but decent facelift, the music selection is as good, and the level design is every bit as inventive. i object to some of the professional reviews claiming that nothing was added but more levels. the first game did a great number of things with only three survivor types, exit 2 adds two more very different ones, the dog and the athlete, as well as a plethora of new level devices to create a much wider range of puzzles. maybe because of it, the focus in exit 2 is shifted entirely to puzzle-solving, and there's none of the sometimes incredibly difficult pure-action levels prominent in the first game's download packs. if you like puzzle games, it doesn't get much better than exit, and exit 2 is a thoughtful and worthwhile update. it's a shame we probably won't see a third game in the series.
