Summary: Takes all of the great parts of the first game and builds upon them. The result is a worthy successor and one of the best Metroidvania games of the year.
Top Critic Average
Guacamelee 2 is a hilarious, challenging, and rewarding follow-up to Drinkbox's original. It expands on the first's ideas in so many great ways, and marries a complex but understandable set of moves to both its combat and platforming.
Colourful, characterful and disarmingly charming, Guacamelee 2 is a hit.
Guacamelee 2 is another champion-grade Metroidvania, provided you can handle some corny humor and retreading of old mechanics.
Only a small improvement on the first game but this is still one of the most original Metroidvanias around, in terms of both its setting and its gameplay.
Guacamelee 2 nails the Metroid formula while including its own style of combat and a great sense of humor
Guacamelee 2 doubles down on what worked in the original and presents the most formidable challenges yet.
A worthy successor to the first game, bigger in almost every way but without an inch of space wasted. But as it's grown in size and ambition, so too has the gulf between the herculean feats of strength Juan is asked to perform and the incomplete feeling of the universe he's doing so to save.
Guacamelee 2 builds on the same charm and platforming core as the first game.
Not once during my playthrough of Guacamelee 2 did I feel bored or look at the clock, and once I was done, I felt compelled to hunt down everything I'd missed. It's yet another triumph for DrinkBox and they probably have at least one or two more of these in them.
