Top Critic Average
Escape Goat 2 is pure brain candy
It's not especially unique, but well-designed puzzles make Escape Goat 2 a lot of fun.
Escape Goat 2 isn't the best puzzle game of the year. It's not even the best goat game of the year. But for the price, it's worth picking up if you find yourself craving a pleasant-enough puzzler.
Escape Goat 2 is a great puzzle platformer that never sign posts the way. It believes that you're smart enough to work things out for yourself, and thanks to some really clever level design, continually trains you so that you're ready for the challenges ahead. While many will lack the patience for the trials within, those willing to butt heads with its puzzles will get a lot from this challenging but fun title.
It's a change of pace from many games out there, but such a thing is what makes Escape Goat 2 truly worth it for all the time spent with it.
And hey, you get to play as a goat. A purple goat. Take that Jon Blow.
In a lot of ways Escape Goat 2 is just more of the same, albeit with a much nicer art style, but in expanding the original experience it loses a lot of what made the first game so smart.
