The name and anime aesthetic may seem off-putting, but combined with the original this is some of the most engaging interactive storytelling of recent years.

Perhaps to put it more positively, play the first game if you haven’t! And then absolutely play this one.

With mysteries more elaborate and impactful, Danganronpa 2 is a masterfully crafted story that sets the stage for some challenging puzzles of logic and deduction.

Despite having a couple of lackluster plot points and devices, Danganronpa 2 is a worthy successor to the trippy story of Trigger Happy Havoc, and I’d highly recommend picking this one up if you’ve already played, and enjoyed, the first game.

An exciting text-based adventure game that will please fans of the series but is too strongly tied to the first to be playable on its own.

In many ways Danganronpa 2 provides more of the same ' but what wonderful same it is. The central tenets of the game return again, and the quality inherent there remains. It's a great story from start to finish, and between the two games Danganronpa has moved on from its roots and the PSP and established itself as an impressive Vita franchise. The fact that some of the newer mechanics don't quite gel take a little of the shine off, but the moves are all generally positive. If Spike Chunsoft keep this up then perhaps Monokuma may find himself adopted as a most unlikely PlayStation mascot...

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is another solid title in the now rapidly popularized Danganronpa series. The game improves on the original like any good sequel should and keeps players wanting more. Danganronpa’s unique setting and story has made me a huge fan; after playing the original I looked up the anime, manga and other media of the game. With Danganronpa: Another Episode coming soon, I can’t wait to get more of the game. Every Vita owner owes it to themselves to get the original or Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair even if they’re not a fan of the genre, the game might just convert you.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is a visual novel that toys with other genres with liberal regard to convention. Part murder mystery, part game show, all visual novel, it manages to be the most fun when the player has to piece everything together. While the game is bland to look at, it's not always about the look. It takes a bit to get to the juicy core of this creepy title, but once you're there, you may not want to leave.
