Rogue Legacy 2 is a wonderful, beautiful, crazy-hard-and-yet-not-at-the-same-time game. I can hardly stop playing it long enough to finish writing this review. It is hard to find flaws in this game without resorting to extreme nit-picking. Every aspect of it just oozes polish. The replayability is off the charts, even after you finally reach the ending. Even if roguelikes/rogue-lites or metroidvanias scare you for their reputation of being too hard for the average gamer, play this one. It absolutely deserves a spot right up there with the best of them, including its genre’s namesakes. You may have never heard of Cellar Door Games unless you played the original Rogue Legacy, but I truly and honestly believe you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
Rogue Legacy 2 offers so many options when it comes to classes, upgrades, and ways to play it that anyone remotely open to the roguelite genre should check it out. I might have asked for a bit more direction in how to approach certain upgrade paths since the volume of choices can be borderline overwhelming, but it’s a minor quibble when everything else about the game is so fantastic. Rogue Legacy 2’s memorable world and overflowing personality will keep you invested until the very end.
Rogue Legacy 2 is a worthy heir to the 2013 original and solidifies the legacy left by one of the best examples of what a roguelike/Metroidvania is. Its difficulty may put some players off, but don't be fooled, Rogue Legacy 2 is highly addictive, deep and fun.
Rogue Legacy 2 is an enormous beast of an adventure, packed with fast combat, great platforming and endless replayability. It’s the kind of game that can be actively difficult to stop playing, with the spoils from one run opening up new opportunities in the next that can be difficult to resist checking out. While progress can be slow it rarely turns into a grind, with most hits and the inevitable death of the current hero feeling fair and avoidable if only you’d been just a bit more skilled. The generations come and go with each one sacrificing a member to castle and lands beyond, but the family obsession burns through the ages and makes it easier for the next descendant to go further and become stronger. It may take countless millennia to learn all the castle’s secrets, but seeing as it’s almost impossible to walk away from the quest, they’re bound to be unraveled some day.
All of this makes Rogue Legacy 2 difficult to put down. The "one more run" effect is in full force as you choose yet another new heir to embark on another perilous journey. The introduction of distinct classes with their own unique weapons is a masterstroke that elevates this sequel by building on what was already a fantastic premise and satisfying roguelite loop. House Rules make it more palatable for a wider audience but also give players an opportunity to tailor the challenge to their liking, even if that means increasing the difficulty. The breadth of its biomes can sometimes induce backtracking as you search for the path forward, but this is a minor blemish on what is a fantastic game. Sacrificing your family tree has never felt so good.
Rogue Legacy 2 learns from its lineage and presents a superb sequel with a huge amount of depth of content. With so much replayability and meaningful progression, the game will have players hooked on its delightful gameplay loop for hours upon hours. Built with both style and substance, Rogue Legacy 2 is a tremendous success for fans of the original and the genre. It may not be a game for everyone, but for those willing to take up the challenge, a truly splendid journey awaits.
Oyunun akıcılığı ilk başlarda hafif sıkmasına rağmen , oyun belli bir süreden sonra akıyor ve sizi tatmin ediyor. Oyunun zor ilk zorluğu orta seviye oyun oynamayı bilen herkesin kolayca geçebileceği bir zorluk . İkinci zorluk ise çok zor olmasıyla birlikte çok yorucu ve belli ruh hastaları bu zorluğu geçebilir 10/10
This is a very well-drawn, well-programmed, and well-scripted game. I found the first 36 hours of play unusually diverting. To my chagrin, however, I was unable to master the jumping puzzles sufficiently to pass to the next level. So be warned, THIS IS A NOTORIOUSLY HARD GAME!
I didnt played the first game and jumping straight into the sequel made me feel little overwhelmed. As roguelite it was pretty good, but i havent finished it and will be probably returing to it later and start over little bit different.
I was a big fan of the first Rogue Legacy and am pretty soundly disappointed with the follow-up. The original came out almost 10 years ago and the formula has seen virtually no improvement. It's truly shocking how little the devs seemed to have learned from making the first game, and how little they gleaned from the subsequent 10 years of rogue games becoming streamlined and dominant. Playing Rogue Legacy 2 feels like playing a 10 year old game, and not in a good way.
For all the improvement’s cellar door has made to polish, platforming and more diverse enemies…, the inescapable fact is that combat is still boring due to the 1 note brain-dead moronic enemies that dominate this game.
And when they add in out of balance, hard, mid-level enemies, they just spam attacks in an unfair way because that’s the “tension”…. That actually demonstrates lack of combat design more than anything else.
The fundamentals of combat are still boring. That’s the core gameplay. That part is boring & archaic. Not much different from Ghouls n Ghosts 1000’s of years ago.
Still I really appreciate all the player friendly options like choosing enemy health, turning off enemy contact damage, stopping level randomisation….
SummaryRogue Legacy 2 is what you'd get if you mashed Rogue Legacy and a sequel together. Every time you die, your children will succeed you, and each child is unique. Your daughter might be a Colourblind Archer, and your son could be a Pacifistic Chef. Either way, one of them is getting conscripted.
