Risk of Rain 2 Review
The classic multiplayer roguelike, Risk of Rain, returns with an extra dimension and more challenging action. No run will ever be the same with randomized stages, enemies, bosses, and items. It only takes one minute after booting up the game for the first time, to tell that it feels amazing. Controls are snappy, aiming is spot-on, getting loot is satisfying. Which is super diverse and interesting, opening up possibilities for great synergies. Just like in the first game! Play solo, or team up with up to four friends to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet. Gunplay feels slick, snappy, and the abilities complement one another, making for a perfect formula for mayhem. Using terrain adds another layer of dimension to combating enemies. Discovering new items and experimenting with them is extremely fun. And using them on enemies is even better. Risk of Rain 2 dangerously skirts "must own" even on day one of early access. A very, very good sequel that ups the ante of its parent in every single way. If this is the Early Access version of the game and there is a load of content yet to come, this has the potential to be a gigantic hit.
