Summary

Sequel to the indie hit of 2014, Nidhogg 2 builds upon the award-winning gameplay of its predecessor with new weapons to wield and levels to master, head-to-toe character customization, and the captivatingly grotesque art of Toby Dixon. And, with music from artists including Mux Mool, Geotic, Doseone, Osborne, and Daedelus, Nidhogg 2 has a soundtrack so good that even the menu screens are awesome.

The only mode worthy of note in Nidhogg 2 is the offline 8 player Tournament, which is great when you’re holding a house party and people are getting excited/salty for the action on screen. But unless you’re some kind of social butterfly, you probably won’t get chance to try it out. In the end, Nidhogg 2 is a story of wasted potential. With better modes and more stable online play, this game could have have been so much better.

As someone who played way too much of the original, Nidhogg 2 is a let-down. Like the original, it’s still a lot of fun to play locally, but it fails to really excel in the areas where Nidhogg faltered before. The online play currently ranges from bad to broken, and that’s a huge hit for a game that’s built around playing with friends. The single-player arcade mode isn’t enjoyable to play, and feels thrown in order to fulfill a checklist.

Nidhogg II is a case where bigger isn't always better. It's like trying to improve on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Sure, it's possible to add things to it, but the PB&J isn't something that really needs improving. That's how I felt coming away from Nidhogg II.
