A big part of what made Simulacra so unnerving was its intimacy. You spent lots of time in that game looking at things you weren’t supposed to see. It felt wrong, especially when it started leading you down a dark and scary road. Simulacra 2 abandons all of this to tell a clumsy cautionary tale that feels just as artificial as the social media lens it’s filtered through. It’s an utter disappointment.
Simulacra 2 is a worthy sequel and an immersive take on the role that our digital presence has in defining who we are. The different playable characters help to give a different perspectives to the sotyr and the suspects are sufficiently flawed to keep you guessing as to where blame may lie, but the wider cast of characters don't feel as focussed as the original. While the virus in question here is completely digital, it's uncannily topical given our enforced switch to virtual interactions.
