    Grate review! Yehh it seems like people are in 2 ways with this game some love it some hate it. I love it ! I have completed the game as max and it had taken me about 30 hours, So that time's 4 for the others and its alot of content. The game does feel grindy at times and the fact i can't take on multiple side quests is frustrating. And upgrade minions don't seem to make much difference. And traps are useless against late game enemies. I just thinking it needs some reworks for that kind of stuff then its perfect.

    Much better review than IGN's "I can't get past the tutorial" review, not even kidding on that one

    Damn, an actual review? Been a long time since I have seen one... Lol, anyways. Kinda dislike that it seems to be built for a controller, besides that minor complaint, is fun.

    I enjoyed the first few hours - up to inner sanctum and first henchman. Then I sort of lost interest. I've decided to wait for some patching, in particular because the character pathing is so terrible you pretty much have to walk them to a desired location by hand.

    I asked for a refund on the game...it's really laggy & has loads of stuff to do that aren't necessary....like putting down gold stacks...camera and cursor movement is screwy too.

    I watched this after watching the IGN review. Can I just say, thank you for not being shit. Thank you for being not only a competent game journalist, but presenting a really dang good review. Really, just thank you for not being IGN.

    I would have liked to have seen you play through with at least one other character and talk about how and if that changes the game play experiences. Evidently they each focus on different aspects of the game and can really change things up. 16 hours on one character, not finishing the game, not fully engaging in the concept of keeping your heat down, and not even mentioning traps makes me feel like you didn't really play enough of this game or engage enough with this game and all it's systems to give me an idea of what to expect. Thanks for being fully honest about how long you spent and what systems you did engage in and which ones you skipped. I appreciate that.

    I think I’ll wait to see Steam reviews. I liked the first game but there were so many issues with it, from the annoying agents and weird, not quite intuitive trap and security systems that I often get annoyed and stop playing shortly after arriving at the second island. I hope this game tightened up those mechanics as I’ve been hoping for this sequel for a long time.

      @Phourc I remember one of the shitty things about the original being that any order given was given to random henchmen, and had a habit of giving it to the furthest away henchman of em all.. It was so tedious waiting for so long, after every command given! But damn was the atmosphere in the game insanely cool

      Traps are way better, they activate on their own and can be chained. Also there's now multiple floors, and you dont need to move islands! Its way better now.

      @NoiseyRabbit in answer to your question, nothing really, I loved the original, even if this was only a remaster I'd but it. The only thing I think I ever had a problem with was when a game went long invariably it would crash, but as long as is same it was fine. This happened across multiple machines as well, it wasn't a hardware issue. Anyway, I could live with that minor issue, I'll be buying it, I was just looking for what the difference was.
