    Little Nightmares II builds on its predecessor as a sequel should, expanding the scope of the universe both in terms of lore and mechanics. Little Nightmares II is one of 2021's first must-play titles.

    Little Nightmares II is an important step up for Tarsier Studios. They maintain the nightmarish horror and the whole aesthetic of the first game, but with a much welcomed extended length, improved visuals and in general even more emphasis on the creepiness of the environments and excellently horrid enemies.

    While everyone is waiting for technically advanced 9th generation games, Little Nightmares 2 steals the show with its beautiful art design, jaw-dropping story and unique gameplay and atmosphere.

    Little Nightmares 2 is a superb sequel that carries on the impressive tone of the original, but improves in all key areas. This isn’t explosive horror, there’s no gore or torture, and for the most part you’re jumping onto levers, solving puzzles, and climbing up furniture, but that doesn’t mean Tarsier hasn’t created a standout horror experience.

    With Little Nightmares 2 Tarsier Studios has once again dreamt up a wonderfully unnerving world filled with grotesque and fantastical creatures that is a horrifying pleasure to explore. Gameplay is mostly the same as in the original, with the only significant exceptions being the addition of Six as an AI companion and some clumsy combat that actually feels more like a puzzle than anything else. If you enjoyed the first game, and you’re looking for more of the same creepy goodness, you can’t go wrong with Little Nightmares 2. Just maybe sleep with the lights on after you’re done playing.

    At its best, the game sustains an effectively ominous atmosphere as it channels recognizable childhood fears.
  7. 60
    Despite contriving its fair share of unsettling moments, Little Nightmares II is a disappointing follow-up to one of 2017's most pleasant surprises. It might be a bigger game than its forebear, but it certainly isn't better.

From the stunning visuals, to the fully immersive atmosphere, the detail put into every area, and the SOUNDTRACK the game delivers in all categories. Constantly on the edge of your seat wondering if you’re safe or not and gives you a sense of unsettlement as you go through each section. The villains are amazing and really make your scared the more you go through and the lore is one of the best parts. Gets you sucked in and makes you watch all this videos wanting to know more. Easily the best horror game of 2021 and in a while. Would be surprised if this game wins no rewards. GO PLAY IT NOW!! Also don’t rely on IGNs rating because they gave it low because the person who reviewed it lowered the score because they were bad at it. Lmao. Loser Expand

    I loved the first one, i loved the second one. The second one is not as good, but I'll love all the same.

    I loved the first one, i loved the second one. The second one is not as good, but I'll love all the same.

    I don't think there is a game that would have traumatised me more should I have played it as a child. The enemies are just so horrific, maybe more so than the first. The sound design complements every environment perfectly. You find yourself with a companion, who functions well enough, and because it was your playable character in the first, it's easy to feel a connection. There are some interesting and surprising moments of combat, some destructible environments. Gameplay ideas not seen in the first. The level design, the detail, the variety in puzzles. It's great, it's imposing, you feel small, you feel scared, but you don't want it to end.

    Until you reach the last couple stages, then you're a little bit readier for it to end, appropriately. What i mean is, the forest level is a perfect introduction, and to avoid spoiling anything further, the next few levels are even better, but it certainly loses its footing later on. Enemies aren't revealed with the same gravitas, the tension steadily dissipates. I feel deaths are even more difficult to predict. I realize, the game expects you to die, but many points felt unfair and relied too much on trial and error.

    It still has all the symbolism, intrigue and wonderful world-building seen in the first. It felt a little longer, which, i still think is a plus, i just don't know whether the increased scale, in terms of it's narrative and environments, seen in the later stages, was misplaced. It's the more grounded moments, where you feel especially small and vulnerable, that Little Nightmares offers up its best, unique brand of horror.

    Like INSIDE but with the infuriating controls and camera angles of Tomb Raider, the game constantly punishes you for doing things ‘wrong’.Like INSIDE but with the infuriating controls and camera angles of Tomb Raider, the game constantly punishes you for doing things ‘wrong’. Walk right DEAD something fell on you that you couldn’t see because it’s off camera, so you take two steps to the left, oh now you’re being chased DEAD stuck on some invisible obstacle. Right now pick up the top of the chess piece BUG no you can’t, go and reboot your console. What a ridiculous game. Expand
