About four years later, we get the sequel to one of the most promising sci-fi series in gaming, and it didn’t learn from any of its past mistakes. In fact, they doubled down on them and even added some brand new ones. If you played and loved the first game, you’ll still find something to love here, but it’s so buried under obtuse puzzles, terrible voice acting, and pointless combat sections that it’s really difficult to recommend this. The story is still pretty solid, but getting to it is a total pain in the ass.
Confronted with virus entities that pursue Arid, you must wait until your enemies glow blue before firing in their direction to damage them. This normally comes after they have made an attack, but shooting or jumping to evade them will drain your Energy. Letting it run low will leave you in the position where you are unable to leap out of harm's way nor fire retaliatory shots, which happens all too often to leave these instances as a constant frustration in an otherwise engrossing narrative experience.
The Fall Part 2: Unbound is different, but certainly not better. Which isn’t to say it’s a bad game in and of itself, just one that missed the mark as a sequel. I hope the next installment can reflect a tightened focus, something closer to the excellent original. Ditching combat would be highly advantageous.
