    With mysteries more elaborate and impactful, Danganronpa 2 is a masterfully crafted story that sets the stage for some challenging puzzles of logic and deduction.

    A psychedelic, brilliant whodunit, brimming with even more crazily creative minigames and impossible to forget. [07/2016, p.68]

    Danganronpa 2’s PC port is competent, though the user interface suffers a little if you’re using a keyboard and mouse. Despite having a couple of lackluster plot points and devices, Danganronpa 2 is a worthy successor to the trippy story of Trigger Happy Havoc, and I’d highly recommend picking this one up if you’ve already played. and enjoyed, the first game.

    The name and anime aesthetic may seem off-putting, but combined with the original this is some of the most engaging interactive storytelling of recent years.

    Danganronpa 2 is a sequel adhering to the motto, Don’t change, just improve. Some of the same problem areas are still present, but much has been smoothed out or enhanced for a superior entry over what was already a good first effort.

    Being a visual novel/puzzle game, it might be difficult to recommend to other people, but for fans of Phoenix Wright or Aviary Attorney, this game is right up your alley.

Os assassinatos estão mais complexos e alguns até mesmo mais bizarros, e os plot twists estão surpreendentes. Se você achava que nada podia superar os plot twists do primeiro jogo, pense de novo. A evolução dos personagens também está bem melhor, e os mesmos parecem ter bem mais conteúdo que os do primeiro jogo. Vale cada centavo e cada segundo investido, e é sem sombra de dúvidas uma das melhores light novels que já joguei. Expand

    Danganronpa 2 retains the prequel's theme of characters getting murdered and then having to find the culprit behind their deaths. However,Danganronpa 2 retains the prequel's theme of characters getting murdered and then having to find the culprit behind their deaths. However, although the story is great, the gameplay is sadly not.

    Essentially, DGR 2 is a really, REALLY slow burn, and I can't say that I recommend it unless you have no better game to play. I wasn't able to get through the game quickly because I'd constantly get bored and have to take breaks. You need to have an insane amount of patience to get through this game.

    Like the prequel, the Class Trials are lackluster and are a total chore to go through. You will also encounter impossible questions that require trial and error instead of logic. Other players gave this game ratings of 10, but that's because they totally pretend that the minigames don't exist. DGR 2 should've provided an option to skip the minigames and it would have made the game so much better.

    In any case, I have to give two ratings for this game. For the story, it's a 9. It's done well enough that it could be its own Hollywood movie. But for the gameplay, it's a 3 or less. The minigames are primitive, confusing, and don't contribute anything but unnecessary game time.

    (Either way, if you beat this game and feel like you want more, don't go straight to playing Danganronpa 3. There is a canon spin-off shooter game and also an anime that comes chronologically before that sequel. Consult Wikipedia for more info.)
