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 challenging and thrilling science-fiction adventure. It doesn't make massive improvements from the original game but it does amplify the best qualities of the first title. You still get to brutally cut off body parts, fight against incredible bosses, and collect incredibly designed equipment. You will die a lot and navigating the various environments can be a struggle but The Surge 2 is about success through trial and error.
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.
