    Pathologic 2 is a harsh, unwelcoming experience that took a lot out of me, but everything in it, no matter how odd or seemingly inconsequential, is setup for an eventual payoff. Players capable of embracing its dour atmosphere will be rewarded with one of gaming’s greatest narrative accomplishments — it’s an epic-length refutation of the idea that gratification can only come through success, that stories need to be about heroes, that “fun” is the only metric by which a game’s quality can be measured. Pathologic 2 is a masterpiece not in spite of its shortcomings, but because of them. There is truly nothing else like it.

    Thanks to its extraordinary aesthetic choices and its endless variety of roleplaying approaches, combined with the depth and exquisite wickedness of survival mechanics, Pathologic 2 is confirmed as an original, atypical, dreamlike, violent and masochistic experience.

    The gameplay of Pathologic 2 is very barebones in favor of a story pretty difficult to understand. It’s a very complex game, barely passable on the technical front, but with a great atmosphere.

    A weird and unique game that may be too confusing for most of the players but manages to be almost unique in its kind.

    Like an experimental art house film re-shot to more fully realize its original creative vision using modern technology and techniques, Pathologic 2 brings the tense, enigmatic streets of Town-on-Gorkhon to life like the original never quite could. It iterates and adds on top of what once was to great effect in nearly all but one particularly baffling area, and any gamer with a penchant for single-player games with a strong narrative focus should play through Pathologic 2 at least once for the one-of-a-kind experience that only it provides.

    Pathologic 2 is a narrative-driven thriller that doesn't really care if you have a good time or not. Prepare to be eternally hungry.

    An interesting narrative and eerie ambience are present, but frustratingly tedious survival features, poor combat, and performance issues plague the title.

    The first part (the Haruspex scenario) is simply brilliant and very true to the original Pathologic. Can't wait to play the Bachelor and theThe first part (the Haruspex scenario) is simply brilliant and very true to the original Pathologic. Can't wait to play the Bachelor and the Changeling!
    As for those who are new to this game and its universe - I strongly recommend to play it on medium difficulty ("Larva") because otherwise it will be a pretty tough experience and can scare you away.

It also has a long way to go, as it really needs perfomance and balance patches and bug fixes and the devs promised 2 extra campaigns, which were present in the original game. Expand

    There's an interesting story in here somewhere but you'll be too busy playing whack-a-mole with your survival meters to ever see it.
