Rogue Legacy 2 Review (Steam)
Our Rogue Legacy 2 Review is what you’d get if you mashed our Rogue Legacy Review with a sequel together. Every time you die, your children will succeed you, and each child is unique. Your daughter might be a Colourblind Archer, and your son could be a Pacifistic Chef. Either way, one of them is getting conscripted.

- Loads of annoying enemies that can fire and move through the scenery.
- Feels like a reskinned version of the first game.
- RNG makes or breaks the run.
- Doesn’t explain the whole lot.
