Death end re;Quest 2 Review

Overview

Sometimes a developer wants to try something a bit different from what they have come to be known for and in the case of Compile Heart and Idea Factory Death End re;Quest was a perfect example of taking RPG mechanics that a team is known for working with as well as a certain style of humor and putting a new twist on it. This twist of course was the fact that Death End re;Quest was a much darker game than anything the team has previously put out and combined the gameplay of both a turn based RPG and a visual novel into what ended up being a unique and engrossing experience. So now a little over a year later the team has returned with Death end re;Quest 2 but the question is, have they managed to capture the same unique feeling as before?

Overall

Death end re;Quest 2 may have came a bit too quickly on the heels of its predecessor to really innovate its gameplay in any notable way, leaving combat mostly untouched, but players will find a story awaiting them that is filled with horror and mysteries that only seem to grow deeper the further the player progresses, urging them to continue to dig deep into a well-blended story that may not have seemed possible from the developer before but proves that the team knows exactly what they are doing in a series that can only go up from here.

Score: 8/10
