Sequels often tread in muddy water, either playing it too safely and failing to innovate, or, stepping too far from the concept of their predecessors at the expense of their identities. Rarely do we see a sequel that truly builds upon what came before it, whilst staying faithful to its roots and its character. Guacamelee! 2 is of the latter, delivering an adventure that’s remarkably fluid, constantly enthralling, and thoroughly entertaining.
For Xbox One owners, Guacamelee 2! is a required pick-up. The Metroidvania genre has enjoyed a number of certified classics over the past few years, and this one of them. Above all else, this title maintains a clear sense of direction. While there are new abilities to account for, none of them are detrimental to the game's focus. Instead, they help shape its core identity, offering players a refined experience that they're unlikely to get anywhere else.
Doch das mechanische Herz von Guacamelee 2 schlägt stark und erbarmungslos. Und die handgezeichnete und sorgsam geplante Action mit ihren bewusst platzierten Gegnern, Fallen oder Gefahren ist für mich nach wie vor erfrischender als irgendeine zufällig generierte Rogue-like-Variante. Ay Caramba!
