The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters
Top Critic Average
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a fantastic game that absorbs you into a grim parallel universe and uses every tool in its arsenal to create an addicting sense of tension.
I went into The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters expecting nothing, but aside from the initial frustration I had with its combat elements, came away having enjoyed this nice little slice of K-horror a lot.
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is an interesting take on survival-horror. You don't get to fight your way out of the situations you find yourself in. Instead, hiding is your best weapon. Devespresso Games have crafted a unique horror experience shrouded in Korean horror lore. It's just a shame their unique approach is hindered by some questionable QTE moments and item management.
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a great continuation of an interesting adventure that suffers from difficulty spikes and sudden attacks by monsters closer to the final chapter. Otherwise, this is a very exciting horror story with a fashionable Korean flavor.

While there are sporadic “action” sequences as you flee from Dark Song and avoid enemies, The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a game primarily about exploring a well-crafted setting and the narrative that unfolds therein, so your enjoyment will depend on your openness to that kind of experience.
It's got all the right ideas in there, but it's so timid in exploring any of them that it comes across as altogether too safe to be good horror. Reframing it as a creepy adventure game would have helped, but there too, there are the likes of Tokyo Dark that show just how far things can be pushed, and The Coma 2 would struggle in that framing too.
With amazing sound design, deep dark atmospher and a mysterious story, I can tell that The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is one of the best Survival-Horror Adventure games I have ever played. If you want to have a mysterious dark journey, The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is the game for you to play. We can see a lot of good things from Devespresso in future.

The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters offers an eerie and gruesome horror experience that doesn’t necessarily redefine the genre, but offers more than enough scares to keep gamers looking for some spooks hooked in. Sure, it is guilty of being a little repetitive in places, but the suspenseful showdowns with monsters and stellar visuals more than make up for it. If you’re looking for a slick horror fix on your Nintendo Switch, you certainly won’t want to miss out on The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters – ESPECIALLY if you enjoyed the previous game.
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a wonderful survival horror game full of spooky demonic things, Lovecraftian-esque tentacle spooks, Korean legend stuff, and lovely artwork and sound. I haven’t played The Coma: Recut (the first game) but I read some brief reviews, and it seems like controls were the main sticky issue with that one. I honestly felt like the controls in Vicious Sisters were really good, nicely responsive and smooth. I noticed a character on the first game’s cover art that also appears in 2, so I’m sure if you’ve played the first game there will be lots of fun character and story things carrying over into the second game. Even without playing the first game, I would definitely recommend the second. It makes me want to play more mind games with myself and get back into the genre.
Overall, the world of The Coma 2 deserves a first hand expereince to truly engross oneself in it’s story. Unfortunately, the gameplay loop of The Coma 2 can sometimes feel a little repetitive, as many segments become a waiting game versus the Dark Song creature. Thankfully, the atmosphere never falters despite some weaker aspects.
