Risk of Rain 2 review
by tmello

This game was one of the biggest surprises for me this year in such a great way. Originally, I was turned off by the low poly, low texture vibe that this game goes for, but it's obvious that's what needs to happen to make this game make any sense at all. The idea of a Rogue-like third-person shooter is genius and it works so well. The game does have to chug a lot at some points, but it doesn't inhibit the addictive nature of this game. Co-op with friends is a blast and the different heroes makes the game feel varied. Music bops and getting a good set of drops feels incredibly satisfying. At the time of this review, the game is only in early access, but I can not wait to see the final product!!

Fun and fast gameplay.
A great 3D ¨port ¨of an already amazing game. Takes all of the great things of it's predecessor and adds upon it, giving you an amazing game to play solo or with a party of friends.
Even though it's a game made to be replayable, playing after finishing a loop for the first time can get old pretty fast.

i wasn't the biggest fan of the first game as the rouge-lite action genre really isn't my cup of tea
i don't have a specific reason, it's not a bad genre and i've gotten into rogue-lites before
but this one more than does it for me

i can only really play it with friends but when i do it's always a blast, it's basically the first game but as a 3rd person shooter and if that sounds good then give it a whirl
Loader is my favorite, she's got a fucking grappling hook

Early access review not having to play risk of rain 1, risk of rain 2 is an absolute killing. To make it simple: it is a looter science fiction shooter extremely enjoyable and satisfying from the first moments. One kills enemies in turn of arms without counting, it is played very well in solo and especially in co-op, a minimalist graphic that serves the very principle of the game (i.e. to smash mobs to the shovel without letting go of its left click), a progression and a constant difficulty , endless, almost infinite replayability for character release and a lively, restful, energetic and atmospheric soundtrack. This game at all to be the game (independent) of the year 2019.

Early access review I do not recommend to play this game if you are not patient and very ragy, aside from it, I loved the 1 of one of these forces, as soon as I saw the 2 arrived on steam, I could not help but buy it and worship it as I will once made for the 1, obviously its changed greatly from the first which was in 2 dimensions and that had an end, but! It's an early access! the end will arrive and that's for sure! I'm obviously looking forward to the official release giving us access to all the content of the game, I must confess that I rarely as much tryhard a game since its release, by the way I find it much harder than the first because the WISPs, which in the 1 were BL oked by the platforms because they were not flying have now become to my liking the worst monsters of the game, or in any case its getting closer. Sorry for the cobblestone Caesar, but I had to express my affection for this amazing game created by genius developers.

Early access review Ouftiiiiiii I had completely zapped that Hopoo games concocted a suite of risk of rain that was already a nuggo at the time in the first opus! This very good rogue like goes from 2D to 3D, and I must say that it is rather successful =) immersion, exploration and a well-noted difficulty is at the rendezvous, the design LVL is very neat and the number of loot generous, I recall that in this rogue like one can cumulate er the same relics, so possibility to become completely smoked at a certain level, now it is still necessary to know how to survive because the more time passes in game and the more the cursor of difficulty increases:D Moreover I would add that the multi has clearly been improved compared to the 1 or you had to open ports and hack a few tricks on his IP to be able to play with his friends.. From now on there is the possibility to play online with strangers, or with his buddies via steam! The continuation of the development but it promises to be very heavy this risk of rain 2 < 3
