Overall The Surge 2 is a good Souls-like, nothing groundbreaking or genre breaking; just a solid challenging romp. I would definitely recommend this for people who enjoyed the original and even new people looking for a challenging single player experience.
Everything about Vigor just feels a bit too friendly for a post-apocalypse game! It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it will put some people off. That being said, there are a lot of positives to take away, and for those out there looking for a new take on a BR genre that is all-too-often the same game in a new skin, Vigor is certainly worth trying out!
If you’re looking for a new survival game with a heavy reliance on resource gathering and crafting then this could be a good consideration for you. If like me you want a fun Viking game, and don’t get on with those previously mentioned things, then it’s best to avoid this.
So although I didn’t know anything about this game prior to its release, I’ve cleaned up 1000 gamer score and still don’t know very much about the game either, I honestly can’t really recommend this to anyone other than the most hardcore of Gamer Score hunters who want to mop up the points.
