    The game can feel like a chore if tackling the beginning alone, but it does become more bearable with new abilities. The visuals are lacking in general detail, but were updated and are noticeably different. Ignoring minor bugs with visuals, lag, no singleplayer choice, there is a quality game here that adds to the ever-changing library of Game Pass. Give it a go!

    Aragami 2 is a great game, with issues. The gameplay is immense fun, takes on a whole other level with friends and there is something extremely satisfying about being able to do what you want, when you want it, in order to achieve the mission objective at hand. It isn’t perfect though, and seems to be missing that little bit of polish required to lift it to the top tier of gaming.

    Aragami 2 is a good stealth action game that evolves what was seen in its first part, improving character control and expanding online multiplayer, but that lacks in the narrative and in the mission system, becoming monotonous and repetitive.

    Aragami 2 inherits some of the issues of the first episode and proves to be unsuitable for players with little patience or not accustomed to stealth titles; despite this, after the initial impact it manages to entertain us and give us good satisfaction, leading us in its fascinating oriental world. If you love action-stealth titles and this kind of environment, it is definitely worth a shot.

    With its simple and nervous gameplay, Aragami 2 offers a classic infiltration experience but of formidable efficiency. Add to this the many skills available to players, and the levels can be crossed with great ease for an exhilarating sensation. Unfortunately, the title suffers alongside a lack of variety which gives the feeling of always repeating the same levels over and over despite their large size and barely different objectives. We also regret the change of artistic direction for a result less captivating than in the first part and which reveals a fairly simple technique. Nonetheless, it remains a nice and effective infiltration game that will surely gain in depth thanks to its multiplayer mode.

    Mechanically, Aragami 2 is an improvement on its predecessor in just about every way. It’s a bigger, more ambitious game, and Lince Works have expanded on – or wholesale replaced and improved – core mechanics in satisfying ways. It is undeniably a better stealth game. However, in becoming that, it’s lost the spark that made the original special.

Returning players will find Aragami 2 a departure from its predecessor. Almost everything about the game has changed, from its stealth mechanics and power sets to the very structure of the game itself. Players take on the role of an Aragami. While the original told a fairly guided, linear story, Aragami 2 instead opts for a mission-based approach with the village elder, Katashi, sending you off to investigate Akatsuchi’s movements or rescue villagers. Completing missions earns experience points, as the Aragami now levels up RPG-style rather than finding hidden scrolls to learn abilities, and can be replayed to chase a higher success rank or earn extra experience to level grind. Kakurega itself acts as a hub world between each outing, allowing you to interact with villagers, spend ability points to unlock new passive skills and active Shadow Powers, or craft armor and consumable support items. Skills and powers also get an expansion in Aragami 2. The versatility of the entire skill system also feeds back into the replay of the mission structure. Some may be difficult the first time you have to play, but returning with new skills later can be fiendishly fun. There are often hidden collectibles or stashes of gold to be found that are only realistically reached with higher spec skills. There’s one major change to Aragami 2‘s stealth mechanics, while you’ll remain hidden under the cover of shadow, you can no longer “Shadow Leap” to any spot of darkness, only to certain rooftops or ledges. However, enemy AI is so-so. While Akatsuchi will react to loud sounds or to directly seeing you move around, or raise the alarm if they see a body. For instance, there’s no awareness they’re increasingly alone as you take them our slowly. For all its unquestionable improvements in gameplay mechanics, impressive powers, and overall structure though, there’s something that’s missing about Aragami 2. The problem is that the pursuit of higher fidelity doesn’t seem to be matched by the quality of the end results. There’s the repetition as both enemy types and the shadow dwellers lack variety, with the same character models cropping up over and over. It’s not just the mere presentation of the visuals that disappoints though, it’s the game’s sense of design and UI. Aragami 2 is more of a re-imagining than a sequel so it stands a better light if you go in with that mindset. It’s effectively a whole new game with a few nods in lore and concepts to an entirely different game that came out years ago. For the most part, it works and a deserving offering for newcomers and fans will find their way to the end just the same. It’s not amazing but it’s worth checking out for former fans and newcomers alike. So if this is your cup of tea then head over to the Xbox digital games store and give it a download. Expand

    Крайне посредственная игра. Сюжета нет вообще, если кратко, то ты "ниндзя", ты должен всех убивать. Не нужные диалоги и унылая боевка. ПоигралКрайне посредственная игра.

    Je ne sais pas à quoi ressemble le premier mais ce second ‘Aragami’ semble tout droit sorti du trou de balle d’une Daubecube, la vieilleJe ne sais pas à quoi ressemble le premier mais ce second ‘Aragami’ semble tout droit sorti du trou de balle d’une Daubecube, la vieille console daubée du petit artisan Nintendaube. A moins qu’il ne vienne d’une Plaiestassion 2 de la compagnie des Soniais, qui sait…?

    C’est en effet particulièrement vilain et franchement, ça ne ressemble à rien… et pourtant, pas d’erreur, ce machin est bien sorti récemment, en 2021, au XXIème siècle ! m’enfin bon, pour un indé, ç’aurait pu être bien pire, ils auraient pu démouler un pixel lard directement du dessous du trône !

    Toujours est-il que si l’on retrouve ici des mécaniques d’infiltration et de furtivité pavées de bonnes intentions (mais déjà vues mille fois au bas mot dans tout le paysage vidéo-ludique depuis des lustres), la présentation et la mise en oeuvre sont d’un ennui à se faire hara-kiri en cinq sec. Et je ne parle même pas de l’espèce d’histoire (?!) que le jeu tente de nous servir si lamentablement… ni du fait que le jeu ne fait sa sauvegarde automatique que tous les 36 du mois !

    Enfin, il est hallucinant de constater que malgré ses graphismes pourris, le jeu se permet des déchirements de l’image et de nombreux ralentissements sur console nouvelle génération ! c’est programmé par des stagiaires. Et des incapables.

    This game is insultingly bad in 2022. It's sooooo unpolished. Save yourself the time it takes to download this, even if it's free on gamepass.
