Spelunky 2 betters its predecessor in just about every area. Push through its tough outer shell and you'll discover a fantastic platformer well worth your time. More stuffed with secrets than ever and fleshing out the formula with all kinds of new additions, this is a rich and addictive roguelike with so much to unearth.
Spelunky 2 remains staunchly committed to its immaculate core design.
Spelunky 2 offers a challenging, but rewarding experience. With so many new levels, items, and enemies, there's no shortage of exploration and mystery. It expands upon the addicting gameplay of the first game and offers an entirely unique experience each time you play.
Mossmouth did the impossible with Spelunky 2 in managing to create a sequel to an incredible game that did not disenfranchise existing fans or turn off newbies.
If you loved the original, you're going to love Spelunky 2, and find it equal to its predecessor in all ways except one- where the original was a trail blazer, the new game seems content to, much like it asks of its players, simply plumb into familiar depths.
While it’s missing a few opportunities to embrace the advancements of the rogue-like genre, “Spelunky 2” still expands skillfully on the base of one of the first games in this popular style of games. With a load of new content and secrets to discover, this sequel offers everything fans of the original wanted, while offering very little to convince those that were repelled by the crushing difficulty. If you have any love for rogue-like games you owe it to yourself to at least check out this modern classic.

Spelunky 2 is a masterpiece of procedurally generated platforming that stays true to the legendarily challenging original while also holding surprises around every corner.
A legendary game gets a legendary sequel.
No matter how many times I yelled in frustration, I couldn't wait to jump right back into the ever-shifting caves
