Little Nightmares II review
by Laura

Now this is more like it.

Little Nightmares 2 is vastly superior to the original, being genuinely intense and thrilling with much better game mechanics. 

The controls are much better this time around, and checkpoints are much more frequent, making dying way less frustrating; if you make a mistake, just try again. Sometimes using the flashlight or weapons can be a little tedious (weapons are very heavy and take a longer windup time, and there are sections where you'll need to constantly wave the flashlight around), but overall? Way more fun to play, and offers enough of a challenge without making me want to rage quit.

The game is delightfully sinister and creepy, with genuinely scary villains and a truly shocking twist ending. Needless to say, you'll be going "What the fuck?" a lot when playing. Now I need Little Nightmares 3.

+ Audio-visual setting (you better play with your headphones on, it's worth it)
+ Intriguing plot despite the lack of dialogues
+ Main character
+ Dynamics between characters (they can HOLD HANDS)
+ Opponents and their mechanics (school and hospital ones are wicked)
+ Horror elements (stuff gets more scary than 1st game)
+ Escape sequences gives goosebumps
> Most of the puzzles are too easy
> Still too short
> Last chapter kinda meh
- Controls gets too heavy for more dynamic segments
- Six lost her personality (for most part of the game, not whole), she's acting like a servant
- Battle sequences (would be better without them, just let us escape!)

Little Nightmares 2 is a great sequel, and after finishing it I just stood there right in front of my TV and I kinda wanted to go inside it for some reason. I do recommend buying this game. 9/10 from me

After quitting the first game, I decided to give this one a chance, hoping it would be different - and I'm so happy I did this.

This game is amazing. The art direction is so atmospheric. Everything seems soulless and hostile. Every scenario you pass through has bizarre unique elements to it, such as School and residential areas. This also change the gameplay itself, since every area had different villains and enemies. The miss-in-scene is excellent and the cinematography has a good command of angles since everything looks so big and frightening. The mechanics itself seems more responsible, which is amazing.

Obviously, as with every good horror game, the story does not disappoint. The first 30 minutes of the game are breathtaking and the ending was insane. As the game doesn't give you the answers, you have to figure it out by ourself. This happens in gameplay as well since it rarely tells you what to do - and I love that, cause feels challenging. 

Of course, I can not forget to talk about audio design. Dude, it's truly impressive how good that audio design is. Amazing 3D technology and quality overall. And the OST? Hands down. It still remains in my head after days of beating the game. 

After this stunning experience, I'm now playing the first one again.

The world of Little Nightmares is worth your time. I didn't enjoy the running sequences and their trial and error but I'll overlook that for what the rest is - a wonderfully grotesque adventure.

Easily recommended. Simple puzzles in a bleak, creepy world.
one of the best games I have ever played, the art style, the atmosphere, and the history are incredible, you can really feel the very nature of infant horror in every seccion of the game, it was a 10/10 for me

Didn't quite live up to the first one for me. Still great, and I look forward to what Tarsier comes up with next.
This game and its predecessor have an unmatched atmosphere of tension that fails to be replicated in most horror games. The entire game oozes an uncanny aura from its pores and is a masterclass on how to etch an image in the amygdala of a player's mind for hours after they take a break from this game. This is both a perfect sequel and a perfect franchise.
