Death end re;Quest 2 nails a lot of things: narrative, aesthetics, soundtrack, and character growth are all fantastic. It falters in narrative delivery, visual design, and difficulty spikes. It’s a commendable gothic JRPG from Idea Factory that does interesting things even if not all of them work.
If you’re an enthusiast of the genre, there’s plenty of depth in the game’s strategy and bosses to justify the price. However, if you’re not an enthusiast of the genre and you’re curious about the game, I would recommend waiting for a sale or holding off entirely if you don’t enjoy the potential frustration of challenging games.
Maid of Sker has some decent enough ideas, but the good parts barely outweigh the disappointing bits. I like the idea of stealth gameplay combined with not having a weapon; it just isn’t used effectively here. Likewise, for a story-heavy game, it fumbles with its storytelling.
