Guacamelee! 2

Guacamelee! 2

A constant sense of déjà vu and a massive spike in annoying chicken noises slightly detract from this otherwise excellent sequel. Everything about the original Guacamelee! has been maintained here, including its quality. There’s the same tightly constructed Metroidvania level design, the same frenetic beat ‘em up combat, the same absolutely perfect controls, the same sassy humour, and the same weirdly serious story that doesn’t really mesh with everything else. There are a few fluctuations – the striking but messy background art is even messier now, while the co-op has been improved with regards to polarity-switching. Overall though, everything you need to know about Guacamelee! 2 is in its title, and that’s no insult.
