    Pathologic 1 & 2 are masterpieces of games as art. They are cruel and disturbing, but ask unique questions and do things you won’t see anywhere else. These are singularly unique experiences that are worth suffering through.

    Overall, despite some smaller issues that are being patched out as we speak, Pathologic 2 retains the grim atmosphere of the original, putting meat on the bones of the storyline and characters, but leaving none for you. It’s a shame that the negative reviews put it at risk of obscurity, because it’s immeasurably engrossing and deserving of some serious play-time from those who like to enjoy the journey more than the end goal. You will starve, you will die, you will kill others and run away, you will feel deeply miserable and admit that all hope is gone – and at the end of it all, when you shut down your PC, a nice walk in the sun will seem all the more rewarding.

    Few games are as transportive as this, and fewer still will leave players so utterly convinced that they never want to see such a place for as long as they live.

    A gruelling mystery game that smothers its big ideas with dour survival mechanics.

    Pathologic 2 is a weird and unique experience, besmeared by some optimization and balance issues. Its narrative, story, and atmosphere are suffocating under the weight of its mechanics and I'm pretty sure that heavy reliance on meta-gaming to avoid hitting a roadblock wasn't something its creators intended.

    Pathologic 2 looks unlike anything on the market, and its genuinely surreal and emotionally twisted tale and graphics are at least unique, if not actually appealing. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but neither was Carmac McCarthy’s The Road. Miasma of poorly explained and confusing systems and unforgiving survival mechanics are more clearly a problem and they make Pathologic 2 nearly impossible to enjoy on any level, and certainly not fun.
  7. 40
    An interesting narrative and eerie ambience are present, but frustratingly tedious survival features, poor combat, and performance issues plague the title.

I can say that this is the one truly exceptional game, that makes you love itI've had the displeasure of being hyperfixated on Pathologic 2. I can say that this is the one truly exceptional game, that makes you love it so whole-heartedly like no other game ever could. This piece of **** this wonderful, frustrating, lovable piece of **** is the game that makes an obscene amount of people quite literally INSANE about it, just look at the amount of hour long video essays on the franchise. I've had 8 finished playthroughs in less than 5 months, currently halfway through my 9th. I just can't even start explaining what it's done to me. This game is hard and it's beautiful for it. I will never understand the kind of average sweaty gamer who criticises the combat for being "clunky" and calls it a "budget skyrim", and then there's the art crowd, who wants a bare bones walking experience with no challenge. This is exceptional, no matter whatever they say, even the original couldn't blend the psychological horror of it and the mechanics so well. This game is written masterfully, the characters are unforgetable, and even the ones that haven't had the time to be fleshed out just yet all still have strong and memorable personalities. Just the sheer amount of themes and ideas this game has, the music, the visuals, the character design - it's absolutely wonderful. It's unbearable for some, and I guess that's what throws a lot of people off, but if you push through, if you **** the plague up, if you show the game that you're strong enough to complete it, you will almost surely want to come back to this masterfully crafted world. Buy this game, play it.
