  • If you liked DP1, this is more of the same
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Morach - January 22, 2021

    This is not a triple A game. The fun in this game lies in how offbeat and weird it is and it's incredibly charming. The first one is heavily inspired by Twin Peaks and this one is just more of them same (which is a very good thing). The map/game world is smaller than in the first. The first game's map was big and empty, while this one is smaller but more full. The framerate is very low. It was worse before but it's been patched, but it's still not that great. You're not playing this game because of the graphics or snazzy tech specs. If you liked the first Deadly Premonition despite its technical shortcomings, you'll probably enjoy this game too.

  • So bad it’s good!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by AmbientEDGE - May 27, 2021

    Let’s get all of the cons out of the way first. Horrible frame rate, glitches, controls, graphics and voice acting. Now the pros, all of it seems to coalesce into a perfect storm of B movie tropes that make it interesting. From the moment you begin playing you’re waiting to see what is going to happen next. Just when you think it can’t get worse, the game surprises you with a 50/50 chance of actually being worse or being so much better. My entire experience has been a gamble and overall I’d say the game is worthy of being on the shelf as a novelty.

  • Okay, but misses the mark
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Steve - November 27, 2020

    No where near as good as the first. This is a game that tries too hard to recreate the quirkiness and weirdness of the first one, and just comes up short. The characters are not as interesting, and the story drags too much. They also rely on tasks being carried out at specific times, thus dragging out the game to make it longer than it really is. It isn't a bad game, and I would recommend it to those that loved the first one, but don't go into it expecting it to be as good.

  • Atmosphere, aesthetics, B-rated comedy, bland
    Verified BuyerReviewed by kingmarty50 - June 27, 2021

    B Roll film made into a video game: Part 2. I went into it for the cult classic following so I could enjoy the game without any expectations... but MANNNNN corniness aside, it takes but a good 30 mins just to get past all the random talking, and investigating to get to some gameplay action! I mean a big dragged on... Also the game overall is for the Cult followers, and I dig that idea of a good story within a funny way of putting things, but it is a trOUGE to get through... so be ready for a bit of text skimming. I think the voice actors are of that B rated quality and sometimes enjoyable to read, but mostly just garbage text written in that nature to appeal to those fans... sure I get it. I'm hoping to enjoy the rest of the gameplay, and the story is interesting enough for an odd scifi interest at the very least. I just dig the aesthetics and atmosphere of it all...

  • Awesome if you like the first one
    Verified BuyerReviewed by handsometrash - August 8, 2020

    Pretty much more of the same as the first one although I do feel the "stages" in dp1 may be a little better. Yes it has some bugs and performance issues but for me it did not detract from the experience. Its pretty much a detective murder mystery visual novel with action segments set in an open 3d game engine. Kind of like LA Noire but way more over the top and more action.
