Hand of Fate 2 doesn't change much of the concept that made the first game so appealing, but everything here – whether it's challenges, smarter deck building, companion characters, and better combat – marks a major improvement over what we saw in 2015. Repetitiveness can still be a problem, but it takes much longer for it to show up. This time around, this is definitely a hand worth playing.

Hand of Fate 2 is a satisfying sequel and a meatier dungeon crawler, but still somewhat hampered by limited combat.

While the combat may drag down the highs a bit, the core experience is a fantastic and unique trek through a card-created fantasy world

A much-improved sequel that blends disparate gameplay styles to create a compelling roguelike experience.
