Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is a great sequel, keeping the characters and story elements that made the original such a beloved cult classic. Fans of Swery and White Owls' work will find plenty to love, and new players can get absorbed into the unfolding mystery. But compared to its predecessor and other titles out there, it doesn't push nearly as many envelopes in the gameplay department to stand out as something groundbreaking.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is as bonkers as you’d expect and fans will no doubt enjoy catching up with Agent York, but a lack of atmosphere, dull action, serious technical issues, and the creeping sense that Swery is becoming a touch too self-aware conspire to kill the fun. Deadly Premonition 2 is for the hardcores – most other folks can safely close their investigation after finishing the first game.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise wants to revel and self-praise its own absurdist nature, but at the end of the day the actual game attached to all the strange dialogue, mechanics and gameplay is painfully frustrating.
