One Finger Death Punch 2
Top Critic Average
Silver Dollar Games has wholeheartedly delivered on the promise of the original and managed to outdo my expectations spectacularly. One Finger Death Punch 2 is everything I love about the series turned up to 11, and it's a fantastic example of how minimalist design can effectively carry a game, even when pared down to just two simple inputs.
One Finger Death Punch 2 is as fully realised as it can be. It's taken the concept of a two button action game and wrung every last drop out of the concept. What results is a game that is hilariously fun, yet heart pounding at its most intense. It's repetitive, sure, but incredibly playable and varied enough that things are just fresh enough to keep you thinking "just one more go."
Armed with its easily accessible two-button setup, One Finger Death Punch 2 stands as a sterling example of how to make the most out of an extraordinarily streamlined concept. More than that though, it's simply a hugely enjoyable and stylish rhythm fighter that does a grand job of keeping players coming back for more.
Silver Dollar Games has not only delivered on making the perfect palette cleanser game, they’ve also made a damn fine, addictive, and unconventional beat ‘em up.
With hyper-fast action and super addictive gameplay, One Finger Death Punch 2 is a near perfect kung fu fighting game featuring stick figures.
One Finger Death Punch 2 offers a one-two combo that might be simple, but boy is it effective.
One Finger Death Punch 2 is a fun but lazy sequel that succeeds and fails entirely on the merits of its predecessor.
There's still more buried in One Finger Death Punch 2, such as bonus game modes, unlockable and upgradeable skills, bonus levels, customization options, and entire maps filled with levels that aren't actually necessary to beat the game.
One Finger Death Punch 2 manages to take a simplistic gameplay system and turn it into one of the most bizarrely addictive score chasers I've ever played.
One Finger Death Punch 2 is the kind of game that fits the Switch so well. The game is easy to pick up for brief bouts of guaranteed fun due to the simple controls and pitch-perfect action. The amount of modes and levels gives a player a ton to work with, even before taking online leaderboards into account. There's little to complain about here, so the title should be in your collection unless you're averse to fast action titles.
