Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy Reviews
Unexplored2 is an ambitious and interesting roguelike that falls short of what it could be. The unique Dungeons & Dragons inspired roleplaying system is let down by lacklustre combat feel and a litany of bugs that lead to frustration. I do think it's a title that's worth keeping an eye on though, as there's a whole heap of potential resting just under the surface.
A deep and chunky world that sets itself apart from other roguelikes
Overall, Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy does what it sets out to do. It creates a genuine sense of adventure that is only intensified by its procedurally-generated structure. The game does have its issues, with combat that struggles to really make the player feel involved, but nonetheless it's an enjoyable experience.
Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy is a game that you will get more out of, the more you put into it. This is a slow burn rogue-lite that’s not your typical pickup and play experience the genre is known for. Combat is a bit weak and the random encounters between areas can feel a bit unnecessary. But if you stick with the game and it gets its claws into you, this is an experience that becomes incredibly immersive and unique. If you have a lot of time on your hands and want an epic adventure that you make your own then I highly recommend Unexplored 2.
Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is extremely bold in adopting the procedural system in virtually every element of its gameplay. I certainly haven't seen a good part of its possibilities and it's impossible to say what your adventure will be like and this is its greatest merit. Even playing several times, your adventure will always be unique and exclusively yours. Your world is alive and full of color and seeing your actions interfere with the passing of the years makes it all very natural. The small glitches in combat and camera don't detract from the game's shine and it's well worth a try.
