    Overall, Aragami 2 is definitely my favourite multiplayer experience of the year. It’s a contender for my game of the year, too! It’s well designed, looks great, plays very well and is absolutely huge with tons of replay value! I highly recommend it.

    Aragami 2 is a great sequel from a gameplay standpoint, but it lacks the freshness of the original.

    With Aragami 2, the development team changes artistic direction, replenishes the gameplay with everything that has been released in recent years and add content to content, preferring quantity to quality. With a little more care and a better finish, Aragami 2 could have been a jewel: as it is, it remains an effective product, but still leaves a little bitterness in the mouth.

    Bottom line: Aragami 2 is a fun stealth-action game armed with an abundant variety of ninja killing skills and tools which are sure to please fans of the genre, especially in co-op. However, the monotonous missions, low-production quality cutscenes, and slightly clunky combat system may cause a modicum of annoyance for some.

    I do truly wish I could call this a diamond in the rough or some classic in the making, but that’s just not the case. Aragami 2 is fine and while I am likely to revisit it one day, I wouldn’t say you need to rush out and play it right now.

    While there’s intrigue to discover amongst the structure and layout of locales in Aragami 2, the sequel’s turn away from the distilled charm of its one-man stealth prior leaves more perplexed questions than convincing answers.

    Aragami 2 is so ridiculously easy that you can breathe in its general direction and you’ve exploited some gameplay mechanic. It’s great for those who like speedrunning, or those who might not have a lot of time in their day, but if you’re hoping for the slow and methodical stealth gameplay of Aragami 1 then you won’t find it in the sequel. Just like most developers (eyeing you Ubisoft over Splinter Cell) it seems working gameplay formulas mean bugger all.

И вы просто обязаны избежать того, чтобы вас заметили, чтобы вас не бросили в самое слабое звено Aragami 2: бой неуклюж, неповоротлив и совершенно не доставляет удовольствия. Слэш, блок, парирование — это менее продвинуто, чем даже в самой ранней Prince of Persia, и не приносит удовлетворения даже с разблокируемыми улучшениями. Expand

    I have to say that I like the premise of the game, but the execution is rather disappointing. Aragami 2 is a stealth game with someI have to say that I like the premise of the game, but the execution is rather disappointing. Aragami 2 is a stealth game with some platforming and RPG elements. Unfortunately, the core gameplay, while fun – the stages are fairly well designed and interesting pieces of puzzle to solve, though not too challenging aside from a few very specific small parts of some stages – is marred by inconsistent spotting / stealth mechanics and clunky movement, which make the game frustrating to play.

    The story is – well, there is a story. I don’t understand most of it. What I understand of it is not exactly deep. The presentation is not helped by the weird choice to have the voiceover be this stunted mix of japanese, english, gibberish, sims language, and orcish, that’s honestly distracting, because some of it is understandable, and some of it is plain bullcrap. The story is mostly presented via too long cutscenes with little substance, and some dialogue with “quirky” NPCs – basically a very bad anime.

    The graphics are very stylized, but also very clear, and interactive elements, etc. are very distinct and it’s very intuitive. and perhaps the only thing I really liked about this game. The only downside is that, beyond the playable area, basically the back-drop, the skyboxes, etc. are fairly low quality, which is a shame, but I guess sacrifices had to be made somewhere.

    Sound is, well – the sound feedback is pretty good, although it makes you feel as if the enemies are deaf, but I guess for gameplay purposes, it is okay. Music though, is not very good. It’s a couple very short, generic samples, playing on a loop. Also, during cutscenes and dialogue, the sound has this weird glitch where every couple seconds it cuts out for a moment.

    Finally, I encountered a lot of issues with crashing, in and outside of missions, which have often cost me 20-30 minutes of progress. Since there are no checkpoints or a way to save in-mission, it means replaying some pretty long stages over and over, and f. that.

    Also, even without the technical issues which coupled with the choice to have no chekpoints/saving in missions, which are my main gripe in this game, the game is at best 6-7/10, it lacks enemy variety, weapon variety, and more complex stealth and combat mechanics. And it is most definitely not worth the price they are asking for it (40 EUR over here) - not even close.

They couldn't even be bothered to have a complete setup menu to customize the gameplay. This game is so different from the original Aragami that I have to wonder if it was created by an entirely separate team of developers. Expand
