    While it might not be the most complex role-playing game available, it's a worthwhile and entertaining purchase for players eager to set out on a casual fantasy adventure.

    Knights of Pen and Paper 2 will certainly appeal to those who liked the original and are looking for another trek through its trope driven world that packs some interesting surprises and a new set of characters and abilities for the combat scenarios.

    Knights of Pen & Paper 2 simulates the imperfect, but undeniably fun experience of a tabletop RPG. It's a game that pokes fun of entertainment culture and RPG stereotypes as a whole, bundled into an engaging 16-bit retro experience.

    While the game isn’t without flaws in terms of the level of recycling from the previous game, it still passes its charisma check without much effort.

    This game is somewhat shallow in fights, but it does give that Dungeons & Dragons feel that we love. This offers a unique behind-the-scenes into the biggest analog role playing game in the world.

    I wish I liked Knights of Pen and Paper 2 a lot more than I did. It has a lot of charm and heart — I can see it in the gorgeous pixel art and in all the neat jokes and references built into Paperos. But it just isn’t very fun to play.

    Apart from the humour, which is the only positive thing about it, the rest is just the first game with a slightly different coating. If you liked the first part then go ahead and give KOPNP2 a try. But if you value your time and money, don't bother with this inexcusable mobile port.

    good in small doses ...

    Similar to P&P1 - this game addresses old school pen and paper RPG player by making fun of itself in mostly not too subtle ways. Game mechanics are simple - maybe a little too simple - hence ... "in small doses".

    Initially - it feels fast paced and fun - but quickly becomes repetitive with fights being just too similar - and void of any real tactics.

    So for a mobile game played on a quick bus ride or so - it is "ok" ... for the spoiled PC roleplayer it is barely worth installing. Game features and mechanics are just too few to keep a long term enjoyment - and customization of classes and skills is ... well.. barebones at best.

    Still - in quick bursts without a demand for a deep story or complex mechanics - it is a neat distraction.

    it is still a cheap piece of ****,same setting same menus same cheap feeling,
    the game is short,repetitive, you don't have much choice of strategy for the win,
    and i mean mostly use one skill per character and max that out and repeat,
    very repetitive and boring and lacking content diversity,
    but it doesn't stop here as short piece of **** that it is it has split dlc that you can buy for 10 euros
    how the **** is it reasonable to slipt the game in parts an then asc for a dlc 130% of the base price,
    you must be playing with dolls if you think you get away that easy.
    I still cannot belive that a theam of more than 1 people made this ****

Its downright frustrating to make littleThese old reviews make the game seem great, sadly now freemium with a totally pay to win flare. Its downright frustrating to make little gold (because they keep nerfing it), constantly dying to unfair mechanics purposefully designed to make you pay money in order survive, sometimes just to even pay for the resurrection costs when you die to the games evil mechanics....such as multiple traps...to soften you up (9/10 times you'll fail the rolls) then when you're characters are pretty much dead..they'll throw monsters at you with high initiative making them go first just to finish off your characters - this happens all too often.

    In a nutshell, this game "USED" to be great - but until KYY sold out to Paradox - this game has become an absolute travesty and besmirches the good name of Knights of Pen and Paper, for shame!! for Shame!! This game is now barely playable, exceptionally grindy and has a terrible and blatant and shameless P2W system in place.
