Reus 2 Review Pros:

  • Decent graphics.
  • 4.68GB download size.
  • Steam achievements.
  • Own in-game achievements listed as milestones.
  • Graphics settings – window mode, resolution, ground texture, v-sync, and target frame rate.
  • Interface settings – ui scale slider, disable screenshake, Deluxe features, Southern hemisphere mode, and disable planet rotation on Win.
  • Three human spirits to play as – The Sage, The Inventory, and The Goddess.
  • Five difficulties – relaxing, human, giant, titanic, and true titanic.
  • Three ways to play – challenge, free play, and sandbox.
  • Tutorial pop-up option.
  • Quick save and quick load options.
  • Animations of the villagers and animals are done in a cutesy funny kind of way.
  • Many times you will find yourself zooming in and just watching the village go about its business.
  • Eventually, you unlock the ability for the town leader to jump on your giants and give them increased and upgraded powers.
  • You don’t deal with villagers directly, Instead, you perform their tasks by interacting with the environment around them.
  • Games are time-limited but you can carry on after it ends.
  • The game allows you to experiment with area placement and brings up many variations.
  • At the end of the game and as you complete tasks, you unlock new upgrades/challenges bringing a lot of replayability to the title.
  • Has a Steam community and Discord integration.
  • The game gets progressively harder as you unlock more and more, turning into a mass micro-management fest that fans will relish.
  • Playing around and picking up on what the games offer you will reap bigger benefits.
  • You now no longer have to worry about being rushed with timers as they are out of there.
  • The previous game had you playing in just a 1D plain whereas now you have a 2d battlefield and it honestly makes the game a lot more in-depth and has a lot more potential for your creations.
  • The game lets you create multiple planets and this alone gives the game more weight and has you thinking more about what you are doing, before it felt like once you are done that’s it whereas here you are always doing a small part in a big world.
  • Collection menu – shows all discovered Biotica, spirits, projects, Eras, and micros are shown with hover text showing a description.
  • You are working towards leveling up your player profile and this is done by playing. As you level up you unlock new biomes, buffs, shop inventory, etc, and giants.
  • Very addictive and has tons of replayability.
  • Handy tutorial (optional) quests to get you used to the flow of the game.
  • Quests are split up to make managing them easier.
  • Chilled soundtrack.
  • Quick loading times.
  • You have control over the eras and can end them prematurely at your own risk or reward.
  • A worthy successor to the first game.
  • It honestly feels like a new game over the first game, it has the fundamentals but all the new stuff really elevates it.

Reus 2 Review Cons:

  • No controller support.
  • The text in the game is really small, even on big monitors.
  • It is possible to have a few sessions and still not know 100% what is going on, especially when you get down to the micro-management portion of the game.
  • So much to take in and it feels relentless.
  • The Hud can get very busy.
  • The tutorial feels like it could be tightened up.
  • I personally wish it had a quick access way to get into the game, maybe it would have shorter tutorials or little set pieces to have me learning but at a more basic or simple level.

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!
