Warlocks 2: God Slayers
Top Critic Average
Developer: Frozen District
Publisher: Fat Dog Games
Genres: Adventure, RPG
Warlocks 2: God Slayers lets players work to become a powerful warlock as they help the Order and destroy gods. The combat can get repetitive, but isn't too challenging until you encounter the bosses. With several characters to choose from, you'll be able to fight in multiple different combat styles.
Warlocks 2: Godslayers is enjoyable for the most part, but the difficult and tedious combat can take the fun out of the game for some people. The game is definitely geared for multiplayer as the combat can be overwhelming during solo play. Beyond that there are a few minor performance hiccups though it doesn't normally affect any major gameplay. If you can get past that and the difficult-at-times combat, you'll find an enjoyable and humorous game with some interesting gameplay mechanics and even more interesting writing.
There's no denying Warlocks 2: God Slayers has really improved upon the original game that completely bypassed a Nintendo platform release. The larger levels, more refined character traits and continued support for co-op play does help it stand out among its Metroidvania-esque, pixel art-styled brethren. However, the lack of support for online play (something present on PC and other version of the game) takes the shine off this package, especially for a game that's substantially more fun to play with others.
Warlocks 2: God Slayers sets itself on an ambitious path which many players will quickly feel attracted to. The problem is, for all its quality animations and well-written dialogues, Warlocks II simply does not play well enough to provide a memorable, enjoyable experience. Adding to all its gameplay flaws a very inconvenient and unchangeable control system, the result is a game that simply serves nobody's tastes and will only disappoint who will expect something from it.
