Nech sa na to pozeráte z ktorejkoľvek strany, Guacamelee! 2 je presne tou hrou, ktorú je dobré mať. Pretože raz na ňu dostanete chuť určite a práve ponúkaný relax vás dostane. Presne tým, čo nás pred 25 rokmi fascinovalo, je to späť. Nevyhnete sa frustrujúcim momentom, avšak i to pominie a pred sebou uvidíte predovšetkým vynikajúcu zábavu v kľukatých bludiskách. Bez zbytočných príkras a veľkohubých rečí.

A dazzling, thrilling action-platformer with a potent cocktail of combat and platforming components, all set in one of the most appealing game worlds around. It's not a massive progression from the original, and its sheer relentlessness can prove tiresome, but Guacamelee! 2 is a real celebration of a sequel.

While treading the same ground as the original Guacamelee, this sequel take a familiar formula, and spices it up with a few new mechanics, a great story, and tons of rewards for those willing to face the plethora of optional challenges and side quests scattered throughout the world

When Guacamelee 2 does so many things right, from the wonderfully tight and responsible gameplay to the downright gorgeous look and feel of the Mexiverse, it’s hard to not talk about it without gushing. But it’s earned that right, delivering a top-tier experience across the board. It captures the essence of multiple genres and blends them brilliantly within a visually stunning world that’s equally as fun to explore as it is to stare at.

As its primary criticism, Guacamelee! 2 could very well be deemed as more of the same. In any case, the attention to incredible level design and gameplay value proves that DrinkBox Studios had plenty more tricks to show with the old tools in hand. As for first-timers, if you don’t mind being spoiled by the final goings-on of the first adventure, then this sequel is definitely approachable enough for you to dive straight into it blindly. Either way, both games are fantastic games in their own right, but Guacamelee! 2 stands prouder with its chest out as a worthy sequel that should not be overlooked by anyone with a Nintendo Switch.

Well, there you have it. Guacamelee! 2 is a good time, but it’s not without its faults. Speaking frankly, though, my complaints are mostly just long-winded nit-picks. If you liked the first one, you’ll like this one. It’s as simple as that. I honestly can’t think of anything that this game doesn’t do as well or better than its predecessor.

The Nintendo Switch port brings the added bonus of portability and makes short play sessions possible for on the go players. Local co-op can be a bit rough if only using the Joy-cons but this is hardly a deal breaker. If you haven’t picked up Guacamelee! 2 yet I highly recommend picking it us on the Switch as it offers everything the other consoles do with the perks of mobility.

Few games, movies, novels – whatever – are as warm at heart as Guacamelee! 2, with its creators' apparent joy permeating through every joke, line of dialogue, and environmental design. It's also rare that a game achieves this level of consistent quality, from the effective use of parody to the pacing of progression; the generous doling out of new ideas to the always intuitive controls, Guacamelee! 2 is nothing short of sublime.
Rudy Lavaux — Dec 25, 2018
Guacamelee! 2 feels just as good as its predecessor overall. Some of the hardest sections can be even more frustrating than the hardest challenges found in the original, but this is somewhat counterbalanced by the fact that it does streamline a lot of things that were more complicated than they really needed to be.
Brett Medlock — Dec 01, 2018
Overall, Guacamelee! 2 feels like a beefed up version of the original game. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory sense, as the original Guacamelee! is a masterclass of game design. This sequel offers rock-solid platforming, funny dialogue, and addicting-as-ever Metroidvania mechanics. It’s challenging, rewarding and full of spunk. I recommend it as a must play for anyone who likes platformers, co-op titles, and of course, Metroidvania games.

Un más y mejor en toda regla. Aunque falto de novedades, Guacamelee! 2 sabe cómo sorprender a los aficionados a la acción metroidvania con una apasionante aventura 2D que emociona con sus espectaculares peleas cuerpo a cuerpo y por momentos desafiantes retos plataformeros. Ingenioso en el diseño de su peculiar mundo de juego, Drinkbox Studios ha realizado un trabajo excelente que no decepciona.

Guacamelee! 2 é um jogo que retira imenso da primeira entrada da série e embora por alturas possa parecer menos divertido, não se trata disso. O jogo está repleto de ideias engraçadas e apresenta uma jogabilidade muito interessante que faz qualquer apreciador de jogos do estilo "Metroidvania" sentir-se em casa. Graças a um sentido de humor e referências, com amigos este jogo torna-se ainda mais divertido.

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition oferece uma experiência competente que já tinha sido marcante na geração anterior. Nesta versão mais do que definitiva, oferece aquilo que já parecia praticamente perfeito no capítulo técnico, e sobretudo tratando-se de um jogo indie. A temática e o espírito sangue quente latino-americano poderá não atrair a todos, mas toda a imersão humorística num “Metroidvania” sem medo de arriscar vai agradar aos curiosos e apreciadores.
