    Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 is a perfect run & gun game for reliving memories and relaxation. The game is filled with fantastic levels, enemies and great "tongue in cheek humor“.

    Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 is excellent. The classic side-scrolling shooting benefits greatly from the 360-degree aiming, giving you few to no limits in dealing carnage. The presentation is still solid, and the improved co-op mechanics make this a perfect game to play with friends. Shooting fans will have a blast with this one.

    Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 is a charming 2D action/shooter which is highly recommended to all the old and new fans of the genre and it is a bright example of how sequels can be done right.

    Kudos to Crazy Monkey Studios. Instead of relying on only the strengths of the predecessor, the team decided to tackle all the shortcomings. And the result is a blast, filled with guns, gore, zombies, nazis, tongue-in-cheek humour and a visually beautiful cartoon design.

    Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 does absolutely nothing to evolve the genre, but it’s OK. Not every game needs to be innovative, and this Belgian run’n’gun excels at squeezing every drop of fun out of every minute of gameplay using simple means and it looks amazing while doing it. [05/2018, p.54]

    Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 is a wonderful sequel that knows how to improve the level design. Too bad it is shorter than the previous game.

    A formula that still works quite well, in short, and which is hard to complain about that much.

    Much better than the first one, this sequel is a frenetic run and gun with wonderful 2D graphic style and tons of action. It might be not the longest game in the market, but you will enjoy every second of it.

    While the actual story felt like it was trying to drive me away from the action, Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 kept me in by being a really stellar side-scroller. The shooting felt great, the environments were well-designed and chock full of enemies to beat, and the arenas were challenging without being cheap. Certainly not as sweet as its namesake overall, but you’d be crazy to turn down this cannoli without giving it a chance.

    It´s a fun game, better than the first but it´s so much short. Amost 13 euros for 4-6 hours is not enough.
