Summary

Back once again is the 30 in 1 collection. I quite enjoyed a lot of the games in the previous volume so my hopes were high for volume 2. Unfortunately for me, it feels like a step back, some games are clearly back but reskinned, the variety isn’t as fun and it’s just not that much fun overall. It’s a lot of basic games but the bad type of games or not necessarily bad just the less popular game types. Basically, volume 2 doesn’t advance the series and feels more like a step back. I just expected more but didn’t feel it achieved it.

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!
