The Surge 2 has great combat, but no areas stand out visually, a forgettable story, and the feeling that you've done all of this before makes Jericho City a place you'd want to visit, not live.
The Surge 2 is a perfect example of a sequel done right, and in this case Deck13 hit it out of the park to deliver an enhanced action-packed experience with the coolest-feeling combat and a great difficulty curve to match. While not entirely flawless, the sum of all its parts is a game worth the price tag and play time, as The Surge 2 steps out of the shadows of Souls-likes and into its own as a standout action RPG, one of the best I've played this year.
Issues aside, The Surge 2 is a phenomenal improvement over its predecessor. It’s bigger, faster, a lot more ambitious, and above all, it’s a lot more fun to play. Thanks to its neat story, crazy setting, and fantastic combat mechanics, The Surge 2 is a great achievement by Deck13, looking less like “yet another Dark Souls clone” and more like a well-crafted action RPG that can easily stand on its own.
