Critic Reviews for Hand of Fate 2

Hand of Fate 2 doesn't change much of the concept that made the first game so appealing, but everything here – whether it's challenges, smarter deck building, companion characters, and better combat – marks a major improvement over what we saw in 2015. Repetitiveness can still be a problem, but it takes much longer for it to show up. This time around, this is definitely a hand worth playing.

Hand of Fate 2 is a satisfying sequel and a meatier dungeon crawler, but still somewhat hampered by limited combat.

While the combat may drag down the highs a bit, the core experience is a fantastic and unique trek through a card-created fantasy world

A much-improved sequel that blends disparate gameplay styles to create a compelling roguelike experience.

If the combat were just a touch more dynamic, Hand of Fate 2 would be essential. As it stands, it's still a great sequel and perfect for anyone wanting the thrills of an RPG without feeling loss. Defiant constantly prod players into the unknown and the results are always fun and rewarding.

Hand of Fate 2 is an interesting fusion between deck building games mechanics and the worl of Interactive Fiction. Defiant Development has created a nice fusion between narrative driven game with a high number of player choices.

A nice mixture of card RPG and real-time combat, Hand of Fate 2 offers near endless gameplay that's genuinely fun and atmospheric.

Hand of Fate 2 has stellar writing, fun deck building, and interesting stories. What it doesn't have, however, is good combat. While I have grown to find the combat manageable, it should be fun and exciting. It stands as an odd blemish that has been carried over from the original while everything else as been prettied up. Still, I recommend giving Hand of Fate 2 a chance, especially if you never played the original. Even with the lackluster combat there is plenty to enjoy here.
