Critic Reviews for Frozen Synapse 2


7.9 / 10.0
Ian Boudreau

Frozen Synapse 2 is a welcome return to the intensely micromanaged turn-based tactical battles that made the original so compelling. The asynchronous multiplayer is unquestionably the star of the show, and queuing up multiple online games at once means you're never stuck waiting for an opponent, and that you can play at your own pace. But while the new City Game story mode is conceptually interesting, in practice the largely scripted sequence of story missions doesn't allow for much in the way of meaningful gameplay depth.

Often overwhelming and always nerve-wracking, Mode 7's classic tactical game receives a fascinating strategic reworking.

Frozen Synapse 2 has plenty to offer with its campaign, but again, this sequel is at its best when playing against other fallible humans.

Frozen Synapse 2 is a stylish, tense, and tactical game of chess. With guns.

The second chapter of Frozen Synapse is deeper and more complex, but too many technical problems keep it away from real greatness.

Frozen Synapse 2 effectively builds onto the first game with new weapons and a deeper sense of action and anticipation. The single player is unfortunately tepid compared the multiplayer, but the game is nevertheless an essential strategy addition.

This one improves many of its predecessor's foibles.

Frozen Synapse can be clunky, frustrating and terrifying in equal measure. The tactical level is tightly balanced and, when played competitively provides a real spectacle, even when it's your soldiers that are getting wrecked.
