Party Hard 2 does what all sequels should. It keeps what worked, cuts or changes what didn't, and adds some new stuff to keep things interesting.
An evident leap forward from the already notable first chapter. Not every new feature works out well, and the boss fights are here to prove it, but Pinokl's game stands as an interesting and funny little stealth game.

This strategy based game focused around diabolical murder in order to get some much needed sleep is absolutely wonderful. Different characters, levels, and so much in each level to explore! Definitely worth a look, especially if you need to relieve some stress from frustrating neighbours who maybe party too much.
There is a lot of brutality in the world and we do not like it. But game with party killer is entertaining... at first.

It won't be imprinted on your memories, but has the potential to entertain you for a few hours. You can definitely see the progress since the first game and be hopeful for future.

Party Hard 2, is an excellent game. There is a large variety of ways to kill people while still providing a challenge by forcing players to do it quietly… or at least as close to quietly as you can get when throwing a grenade. Its only real downfall would be the boss fights which don't quite work with how the game normally plays, with the final boss, in particular, being seemingly bugged towards the end of the fight.
I’ve got a laundry list of other minor complaints, like how dumb the “boss fights” are, but the randomness is my biggest issue. It turns what could be an interesting, thoughtful sort of puzzle game into a series of pulls on a slot machine. That’s not necessarily entirely bad, and you can get some fun out of it regardless, but it’s a mixed bag.
While it has its flaws, Party Hard 2 is ultimately an enjoyably challenging stealth game. It provides open environments that lets you solve problems your own way, and its over the top violence and dark humor easily crosses the line into ridiculousness.
If you've ever wanted to murder your neighbours when they exceed a comfortable decibel limit, then this is the perfect game for you. You'll find satisfaction in the game's many clever puzzles that deliver pure murderous fun and the almost contemplative nature as you avoid getting caught. Coupled with a great art style, this is a fun little romp that your secretly psychotic heart can indulge in.
Party Hard 2 builds on the formula of its predecessor to offer a brutal, sadistic, and very creative mass murder simulator. It may not feel all that new, but it’s got enough tricks up its sleeve to justify another couple 3 AM murder sprees
There are undeniably some issues that need to be ironed out, most entertainingly highlighted by NPCs gleefully ignoring murders in one stage so long as they’re performed with a forklift, but the underlying promise here really shines through when everything is working as expected. The biggest issue is that things don’t always work as expected; during one stage that begins by forcing you to kill four bikers with your “ultimate” attack, a randomly-wandering NPC was placed close enough that the police were chasing me seconds in through no fault of my own. You can forget about evading police in Party Hard 2, as well, with the pairs of officers that show up having a preternatural talent for knowing where you are and boxing you in.
Party Hard 2 isn't a bad game, but it's not for everyone.
Party Hard 2 does just about everything right. It’s a game of skill, strategy, and patience. It can also be frustrating with its increased difficulty, and can be off-putting, especially when you’ve completed most of the objectives and an ill-timed move spells disaster. Party Hard, a game I absolutely adored, is simply outdone with Party Hard 2. Every aspect and mechanic is improved over the original for the better, making Party Hard 2 a must-play.
