    The Surge 2 is a must-play for fans of the soulslike genre. With incredibly well-designed areas, excellent combat featuring a wider variety of enemies, and a story that proves itself worth being invested in by the end, it improves upon its predecessor in almost every area and is absolutely worth your time.

    The Surge 2 is full of surprises, but not the ones you'd expect.

    Despite some performance hiccups, The Surge 2 is a sequel done right. Meaningful changes have been made to address the criticisms aimed at the original game, new features have been added to enrich and expand the gameplay, and storytelling has been put more at the forefront. It’s definitely one of the best Souls-likes currently available, though it’s doing the game a bit of a disservice to call it one; The Surge 2 further takes the series into its own territory, enabling it to stand on its own two feet.

    The Surge 2 improves on every aspects of the previous game. It’s more nervous, more intense, more varied. It’s consolidating on the very solid base of the first The Surge, and does it well.

    If you’re a fan of the original outing in The Surge universe and have been craving more of that futuristic Dark Souls feel, then The Surge 2 on Xbox One isn’t a bad way to get your fill.

    Although The Surge 2 is certainly a better game than its predecessor, it still has a long way to go to reach the highs of similar titles.

    This sequel feels like more of the same, but The Surge 2’s combat remains satisfying. [Issue#183, p.91]

Its as if they went through the wish list of players of the first game, and ticked them all off. Fantastic combat and customisation.

    Początkowo rozczarowany średnią jakością grafiki oraz klimatem gry chciałem ją zostawić po godzinie ale na szczęście tego nie zrobiłem. Gra nabiera rumieńców dopiero po kilku b godzinach gry i oferuje dużo dobrej zabawy. Ciekawa walka oraz nieskomplikowany system rozwoju bohatera pozwala nawet osobom początkującym szybko zrozumieć zasady gry a sposób zdobywania nowego ekwipunku zachęca do eksploracji. Gra ma przyjemny poziom trudności i raczej nikt nie powinien zbytnio na niego narzekać. Gra aktualnie znajduje się w Xbox Game Pass więc warto sprawdzić. Plusy:
    + system walki
    + zdobywanie nowego ekwipunku
    + przyjemny poziom trudności
    + Finishery
    Minusy:
    - lokacje czasem zagmatwane

    Great level design, fighting mechanism and crafting system. Space for improvement in boss design and story...

    Suite de la première purge, la purge 2 remet le couvert et refait la même chose, à savoir une copie des jeux masochistes et autres soûleriesSuite de la première purge, la purge 2 remet le couvert et refait la même chose, à savoir une copie des jeux masochistes et autres soûleries qui soûlent à mort (bouge, meurs, ressuscite ad libitum et ad nauseam) sans sauvegarde (ou si peu) sans carte, et avec beaucoup de fatigue : le personnage est toujours fatigué après avoir donné deux coups...

    Evidemment, le moindre petit ennemi te donne un coup et t'es sévè_rement blessé... un autre et t'es presque mort... un troisième, t'es à la morgue et t'as perdu tous les machins que t'avais ramassé ! tu l'as dans le cul hihihi ! et t'es renvoyé à un point là-bas, à l'autre bout du niveau et de tes objectifs ololol !

    Tout est fait ici pour te faire chier, sinon ce serait pas un jeu pour les masos, qu'est-ce que tu crois ! alors on aime en chier et on recommence, on recommence... les mêmes crevards, puis les mêmes boss, la même non-jouabilité, la même chiasse, quoi.

    C'est pas tout ça, mais il faut évacuer tout ça, ce n'est pas sain cette chose.. alors, tirons la chasse un bon coup !
