About this game
Developer: Ice-Pick Lodge
Content Rating: Mature
It’s a game that always makes you feel in a pinch—but being in a pinch also feels worth it. Whichever of the three playable characters you choose, your goal will always be to determine the origins of Sand Plague and save the Town (or what’s left of it). But in order to do that you’ll first have to survive, and that won’t be an easy task.

Pathologic 2 is the product of a perverse design philosophy. It's alternately intriguing and off-putting; it draws you in with its eerie, dreamlike setting and cast of unnaturally eccentric characters, but then it pushes you away with its nagging, mundane demands. In the end, I was resigned to let failure take me.
Pathologic 2, although not as polished as maybe Fallout or Elder Scrolls, still contains all the necessary features for a story driven first player adventure. The games difficulty and time frame can have you sweating under the collar and sometimes become a bit overwhelmed, but you can praise it for its detail to character work and story line.
Despite its dream-like quality and incredibly unique atmosphere, Pathologic 2 is overly bloated and riddled with annoyances. Minor bugs that cause a stutter or frame rate crash aren’t as annoying as desperately trying to find some nuts before you die. The first game was a cult classic, and I feel this one will be too. Fans will be able to look past the inconveniences and see the strange world in all its wonder, but the rest of us will probably not make it to the end.
