    As far as I’m concerned, Risk of Rain 2 is as good as gaming gets. Unlocking items, discovering new synergies, planning out builds — it’s all immensely satisfying. Make no mistake: This is a tough game, and the randomized nature inherent to roguelikes just won’t click with some people. But, for players with a taste for escalating action and challenge, this game stands as one of the very best in the genre.

    Risk of Rain 2 is an excellent time that takes you from a scrappy fight with some pesky aliens to a desperate battle for survival in a 3D bullet hell every run.

    A shooter with a roguelike’s soul, Risk of Rain 2 is pretty much devoid of any deeper meaning, but at the same time perfectly executed and brilliant in its simplicity. [11/2020, p.33]

    Risk of Rain 2 has a lot to offer and despite some downsides to the multiplayer side of things, the game is still really well put together. There is a lot to explore and unlock, but most importantly, it’s really fun to play. The core gameloop of Risk of Rain 2 makes it accessible while the additional features and mechanics make it tough to put down. I highly recommend this game to both roguelike veterans and those who are interested in diving into the genre.

    The quest for outrageous items makes Risk of Rain 2 a strong action roguelike, but its unlockable secrets give it that little something extra.

    Risk of Rain 2 offers an impressive but difficult adventure. The game can reward smart players for some steady-progressed strategy, while stubborn and radical players will be punished instantly.

    Risk of Rain 2 is a third person shooter roguelike full of items to unlock and enemies to kill. However it is a little short of breath.

Risk of Rains transitioned from a great 2D game to an amazing 3D game could have been a difficult process, but the dev at Hopoo Games it made it come across as seamless. Chris Christodoulou returns to give Risk of Rains its unique sounds with a soundtrack that slaps. Expand
