A repetitive and dull gameplay loop that's thematically allergic to the game's cast of misfits only begins to describe how heartbreakingly disappointing Kill the Justice League truly is. Rocksteady should've died a hero, instead, it's lived long enough to see itself become the villain.

The Talos Principle II's expertly designed puzzles are kept interesting and engaging throughout a lengthy thirty-hour runtime by the incremental introduction of consistently intriguing mechanics. Pairing well with pragmatic problem solving is a story that delves into ancient Greek philosophy and mythology that effectively asks unimaginably important questions that can't possibly be answered. It's common to find an experience that makes you feel, and equally common to find one that makes you think, but The Talos Principle II is a rare cross-section that allows you to do both simultaneously.
