    Whether you play alone or with a second player, Cat Quest II is an outstanding action RPG with a great sense of humour.

    If you don’t have a co-op buddy on hand though, Cat Quest II is still plenty of fun by yourself. Just be prepared to get annoyed at your AI companion from time to time, but at least you can switch between either character at your will. If you didn’t much enjoy the first Cat Quest, there’s not much to tempt you into the sequel; it’s very much more of the same. But if you did enjoy Cat Quest, then that should be music to your ears. It’s everything you loved, but just more of it.

    Overall, Cat Quest II is a fantastic adventure that’s easy to recommend for players of any age. It’s a big improvement over the first and greatly expands upon what worked before while fixing some of the issues that didn’t. Having two characters to play as simultaneously keeps things fresh, as does the addition of long-range attacks. The graphics aren’t a giant improvement over the first, but they’re still good overall and pleasing to the eye. The weakest point is its sound — which isn’t bad, but unspectacular. Anyone seeking an action-centric dungeon-crawler will love Cat Quest II — and if you didn’t like the first, the second may just fix that.

    Charming, adorable, and delightful, Cat Quest 2 offers a solid adventure-RPG romp. Sadly, it's best played in short bursts due to repetitiveness, and you're bound to seek help from another player since the AI teammate can be downright incompetent.

    While I enjoyed my time with Cat Quest 2, a bit more depth all around would have been "purr-furred." Perhaps the developer's hints of updates to come will remedy this oversight sufficiently.

    Cat Quest II is pretty much more of the same you experienced in the first game. It’s a winning formula though, so that’s not a bad thing just yet, but could be in future entries to the series.

    Cat Quest II is a fun romp, but the thrills on offer are a bit shallow.

    Cat Quest 2 is obviously the sequal to Cat Quest, You can play solo or coop, This is the biggest difference between the first game and this…. Cat Quest 2 is just more cat quest.. however here you control two characters as you go on a journey to collect the broken shards of the kingsblade to unite the world of cats and dogs. Do you need to play the first to understand whats going on or enjoy the game? Yes and no…
    I didn’t play the first game so I wasn’t quite sure why we are doing what were doing here… thankfully at the end of the game you get an explination… so it will definitely helpt to have played the first, but at the same time.. the games are so similar that you might enjoy it more if you just hop in now…
    I loved Cat Quest II…
    This is an 8 hour long open world rpg where youll be obviously completing quests… from story to side, slaying enemies in the open worlds, exploring dungeons for chests for new weapons and armour…
    Its addicting, I never found myself having to grind to complete story quests because the dungeons do such a great job of enticing you to explore that youll earn plenty of xp from them…
    I do have a love hate relationship with the loot here…
    I love that there aren’t that many weapons in the game, theres just right amount, and when you find duplicates it automatically levels that weapon or armour up… I do wish however that there was a larger variety in weapon types.. you get a staff or a sword/axe.. that’s all and the swords don’t really do much different and neither do the armour you find…
    I very early on built up my party as 2 different class types and stuck with that through the entirety of the game…
    This keeps the game from being as exciting or fresh feeling as it possibly could be.. don’t get me wrong.. despite the tedium Cat Quest 2 doesn’t feel as such until maybe the final hr or two…
    When you start feeling full you only have a couple bites left..
    But I feel like Id be wanting dessert if there was just a bit more variety in the gear…
    I want a struggle and balance, not an obvious choice… I want to create my own classes with different stats and specials…
    There is the potential here for that.. especially with the magical powers and elemental weakneses and resistances in the game…
    Balancing your magic with your weapon and gear, giving a certain attack a buff or ensuring you have a balance of elements incase you run into a certain enemy type.. though you are thankfully able to swap gear mid fight…
    And fight here are so addicting, and just the right amount of challenging…
    Obviously some enemies are way above your level, but you always feel like you have a chance, no matter how many times you die…
    Overall Cat Quest II is an addicting open world rpg well worth your time…
    I would just like the sequal to step it up a bit with the loot which I feel is easily this games weakest aspect aside from the pretty throwaway generic story….
    Better story, better loot and we could see cat quest 3 in the game of the year talks
    I give Cat Quest 2
    an 8/10

    CQ2 is a nice follow up. More of the same except you have two characters. The main story has more scope this time around. The sides quests areCQ2 is a nice follow up. More of the same except you have two characters. The main story has more scope this time around. The sides quests are uneven. Many seems like fetch quests. Graphics are exactly the same. Combat is fun, you have different ways to beat enemies. The item management is still very simplistic but there is an upgrade system. I give it 78%. Good game for the price. Maybe more for a younger audience. Expand
