  • Summary: The original Coq of War returns in a glorious explosion of finger-licking fun; with enhanced controls, new upgrade systems, a full single player campaign in “Part 1: The Cockup” with full VO and OST - and a 1- 4 player campaign in “Part 2: The Rescue” with procedurally generated maps.

    Pacing issues aside, Rocketbirds 2 provides a fun experience that I wish spent more of its time focusing on the action, instead of mundane and rudimentary puzzling elements. Fans of the original will love this, and those looking for a throw-away action fix could do a lot worse than give Rocketbirds 2: Evolution a shot.

    Rocketbirds 2 Evolution is the second game about the hardboiled chicken. Some mysterious space owls have revived iL Putzki, the enemy from theRocketbirds 2 Evolution is the second game about the hardboiled chicken. Some mysterious space owls have revived iL Putzki, the enemy from the first part and it’s your job to manage this once and for ever now.

    The gameplay is as smooth as the first one. You can use different weapons, change them whenever you want, sometimes you get new devices for controlling enemies and things like that and sometimes you will meet some NPC characters who will help you out for a while. And besides a very interesting story there is much humor in this game. I’d never skip a dialogue in this game.

    The game offers controller support, but I recommend playing it using your keyboard and mouse, as it’s too difficult to aim with the controller.

    I really enjoyed the co-op mode in the first part and now it’s even better! You can customize your budgie. There is a big list from weapons and clothes to choose from, and once you have chosen the equipment you want, you can upgrade it to do more damage and get hurt less. And now you don’t need to search for people. You can just host a room, start playing and up to 3 other birds can join you whenever they want. And if you don’t want to start playing alone and hope that somebody will join, you can hire ducks. They will fight at your site and make your life easier. After completing certain missions you unlock new shops (where you can buy new armory) and sometimes new multiplayer characters.
    And there is also a versus mode where both sides have to pay money and the winner gets everything! So whenever your partner says he’s better and you can’t anything, invite him for a little match and show him what you really can.

    The graphics are as excellent as they were in the first part. I really love the style and the idea of the game. The music is also great! That soundtrack! I could listen to it the whole day!

    Positive:
    + nice idea and interesting story
    + humor
    + beautiful graphics and great soundtrack
    + controller support, trading cards, achievements
    + co-op mode (online and offline)
    + customization
    + you get a free copy of the first game

    Negative:
    - bad aim with controller
    - had to open my own room in multiplayer, couldn’t join others
    - some lags in multiplayer

    I have become a big fan of this game and I’d say this is one of the best indie projects for me so far. I love it and recommend it to everyone. Now is the very best time to get it, especially if you don’t have the first part as you will get it for free.

    The first Rocketsbirds was already 10/10.
    So this is 10/10 2!
