A very difficult game that can be frustrating at times, but ultimitely does keep you entertained. Worth adjusting the difficulty to make it more playable.

I can’t say I’ve ever played something quite like Pathologic 2. The systems are intricate, the choices have serious consequences and the story is perhaps the most mind-boggling I’ve ever experienced in a video game. At times, it’s too much, the unforgiving learning curve and hard to follow story making it wildly inaccessible. However, if you are patient and stick with it, Pathologic 2 opens up into a completely unique, surreal and harrowing experience that I can assure you won’t have played anywhere else.

Strange and depressive fight against a devastating plague is not sattisfaction for everyone.

Pathologic 2 is a narrative triumph, but atrocious combat gets in the way.

The game is exhausting, it's difficult to be in it for a long time. But because of the deep atmosphere, vivid characters and mysterious plot, it clings and doesn't let go until the very end. The experience is uniquely interesting, but requires additional polishing.

Thanks to its extraordinary aesthetic choices and his infinite variety of roleplaying approaches, combined with the depth and exquisite wickedness of survival mechanics, Pathologic 2 is confirmed as an original, atypical, dreamlike, violent and masochistic experience.

Pathologic 2 is the ultimate acquired taste - unforgiving, byzantine, and eye-opening.

Pathologic 2 presents a weird, engaging, and wholly unique world to uncover and explore, but makes the act of playing it a clunky and laborious chore.

Pathologic 2 is basically the original game in a new coat of paint. Just like the original, it suffers from plenty of technical issues and some of the changes were for the worse. Despite that, it still remains a game you shouldn't miss, if only bacause it breaks the mold of the standard horror adventure games.
