Having played the first one, I was looking forward to playing the sequel. A sequel to me is a game that builds on what it has, adds in new things like mechanics or gimmicks, and generally feels like a step up, Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 is not any of that. In fact, I would say it’s a step back as the locations are smaller, tighter, and harder to navigate, and the combat is awkward noisy, and not fun. The story is OK but it’s just loads of text and voiceless characters with the occasional multiple choice parts. I never once found myself actually enjoying the game, everything was a slow slog to death and frustration. It’s just not a well-thought-out game, the pacing is off, the game has less polish than the first game, and it’s overall a very disappointing package and not worth exploring.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
