    Loot drops of randomized gear and resources to craft your own, explore old and new procedurally generated locations, defend yourself against dozens of different enemies and face off against epic bosses! Beware, for the game is more challenging than ever before, and the tough nightmarish creatures opposing you will not give up easily!

    Despite a new graphic style and a slightly better combat scheme, Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 delivers the same experience of previous game: good narrative and decent gameplay... but fans of Lovecraft needs something more “peculiar” and terrifying.

    Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 has an inspired mix of narrative and presentation, with decent gameplay but somehow it is constantly under-delivering. There’s not enough madness to be found, players spend too much time picking stuff up rather than investigating weirdness, and the world is too normal to keep players moving forward. The developers at Blini Games need to find ways to tweak the familiar action RPG formula in surprising ways. A player who really loves Lovecraft or the game’s mechanics will have fun with it. Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 needs to be friendlier to newcomers and more engaging to draw in players.

    Unlike the first chapter, Lovecraft's Untold Stories 2 does not hit the mark, but in contrast it represents a clear step back in many respects. Its only real strength is represented by the artistic direction, which, abandoning the pixel art of the progenitor, preferred to adopt a cleaner design inspired by comic books. Overall, the title turned out to be somewhat unsatisfactory: once the adventure began, you are immediately catapulted into history without a real guide, while the combat system appears slow and clumsy, also due to woody animations. To this already unfortunate situation must be added some rather unbalanced enemies, numerous bugs that compromise the experience, an isometric view that sometimes makes you turn up your nose and, last but not least, the unexpected removal of the cooperative mode promised to the public during the development. At present, Lovecraft's Untold Stories 2 appears to be far from being able to be a playable experience that can be promoted.

    With clunky combat and poorly explained mechanics, Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 fails to hit the mark in any meaningful way.

    Horrible hack and slash game with roguelite elements don't waste your money.
    1) Very poor animations for 2022 standards
    2) Clunky combat no
