5 / 10

When it comes to its social criticism, his characters and the low-poly atmosphere, Sludge Life 2 is pretty good. But it doesn't go far enough in its concept, which quickly shows its limitations. It becomes rather boring, despite its short length.

With a sickly world, interesting NPCs, and some truly gruesome humour, Sludge Life 2 succeeds at many of the things it tries. In my short time with the game, I was regularly grossed out and intrigued by everything in front of me. Though it will only take you a short time and not all of its risks pay off, it follows up the first game with a rewarding sequel – even if it starts to feel a bit shallow.

Sludge Life 2 is a second verse that feels much the same as the first, but it's still got a bouncy, vivacious, and utterly unique sound.

Sludge Life 2 takes the best ideas of the first game and improves on them all. There are more interesting characters to have conversations with, more hotel rooms filled with small but effective narrative moments, more spots to tag, and more ciggies to collect. There’s plenty of dark water under the hotel and weird vistas to photograph.

Just like its predecessor, Sludge Life 2 is more style than substance, and while it still looks and feels unique, it is repetitive and lacks something new to offer in terms of gameplay.

The vibes in Sludge Life 2 are immaculate and grimy, but like before I just wish it fleshed itself out some more.

If you appreciate unconventional and visually captivating experiences, Sludge Life 2 offers a distinctive journey through a world filled with peculiar characters and a vibrant urban landscape. However, those seeking a more narratively satisfying adventure should probably look elsewhere. Sludge Life 2 is a game that will appeal to a specific audience, but not all players will find it to be a lasting and fulfilling experience.
