Far from being what one would expect from a sequel, Mary Skelter Nightmares 2 looks like hand of slight from Compile Heart; it feels like a duplicate of the original, disguised as a sequel for cynical marketing reasons. Owners of Mary Skelter Nightmares on Vita can safely ignore this so-called sequel.

Mary Skelter 2 is a wonderful, first-person dungeon-romping adventure RPG. Even if you're not an anime fan you'll find some delightful and fun characters here to enjoy. The game is packed with things to manage and a few gameplay doldrum avoiders in "Jail Trails" and puzzles encountered along the way. The beautiful character drawings and voice acting can be enjoyed equally well at home or on the go!

I was a huge fan of the first and I’m just as much of a fan of the second. Not content to simply recycle the elements that made the first so great, Mary Skelter 2 makes new strides in order to be different enough that it’s not simply more of the same. With both being able to be played essentially side by side? This is the perfect package for any dungeon crawling RPG enthusiast!

Very few dungeon crawlers are as rewarding as Mary Skelter 2.

Mary Skelter 2 is more of the same, but given that no one else out there would touch this combination of fairy tale, fetishistic horror, and anime fan service, I can't complain one bit about what Mary Skelter 2 is.

With Mary Skelter 2, Compile Heart has shown that they can deliver a phenomenal DRPG. Every aspect of this entry has been refined to a near-flawless level.

A lot of nagging issues keep Mary Skelter from being a must-play title, and instead I see it reserved more for people who want incredibly deep mechanics and aren't turned off by pedestrian story-telling. If you're willing to put the time in, you can unlock costumes and even Mary Skelter: Nightmares, the first entry in the series, but approach this dungeon-crawler with caution. You won't be able to avoid the anime girls in various states of undress nor skip walls of insipid dialogue.

Mary Skelter 2 is a welcome return to the horrible living Jail and anyone who is intrigued that missed the original Vita release is taken care of with the added bonus of the original game as a free download.

Mary Skelter 2 is a very solid dungeon crawler that will appeal to all fans of the genre, expecially for its quirky story and dark tones. Not suitable for all newcomers, though: it's long, difficult and sometimes even obscure in some of its puzzles.
