Nidhogg 2 doesn’t stray too far from the concept of its predecessor. This, depending on what you want from a sequel, will be for the better or for the worse. Regardless, there’s no doubt that this game offers one of the best and most tense 1v1 experiences in recent memory. What I found most compelling is how in-depth and robust the game can be, whilst remaining totally accessible and fluid throughout.
Even though I sill have no idea what the overall point of the game is, I couldn’t help but enjoy the wacky nature of the game and the simple yet skill based combat. Unfortunately I was not able to test out the online multiplayer, but even if I could Nidhogg 2 still lacks enough modes to keep me coming back for more. The lack of a difficulty setting is also a let down for the arcade mode.
Nidhogg 2 provides the same smart simple style of dueling found in the original game providing both intense and hectic battles. The multiplayer stages and quick battles that constitute each match consistently delivers a short burst of adrenaline rushed fights. It's unfortunate that there isn't a satisfying progression system to link everything together.
