Remnant 2

Step aside, swords and magic! Remnant 2 is breaking the mold by unleashing a hail of bullets on all sorts of nightmarish creatures. And the reviews? They’re painting a picture that’s definitely worth a thousand words!

At the time of writing, Remnant 2 is basking in the glory of a very impressive 81 score on GameSpot’s sister site, Metacritic. That’s the result of 15 reviews, marking a strong start for a game that’s not afraid to play by its own rules. Critics seem to be captivated by the game’s seamless blend of Souls-like challenge and looter-shooter mayhem. Of course, not everyone is instantly sold, but hey, even Picasso had his critics, right?

Let’s dive into what the critics have to say about Remnant 2!

GameTopic – 9/10: A Genre Mashup That Hits All the Right Notes!

“It’s astounding! Remnant 2 manages to find a place in my heart as a favorite souls-like, a favorite looter shooter, and a favorite procedurally generated game. This triumph of a sequel completely reimagines the souls-like genre as a co-op looter-shooter, and it excels in ways that the original couldn’t even dream of.” – Travis Northup, GameTopic

Destructoid – 8.5/10: A Rogue-like Delight for Souls Fans!

“Remnant 2 is a must-play for fans of the original and souls-like enthusiasts. Even if you haven’t experienced the first game, but you have a soft spot for challenging games like Risk of Rain 2 or Returnal, this one will hit you right in the sweet spot.” – Steven Mills, Destructoid

PCGamesN – 8/10: A Riveting Adventure Full of Hidden Gems!

“Sure, there are a few minor hiccups in Remnant 2, but they fade into obscurity when I’m courageously exploring uncharted realms or locked in an intense boss battle. The game’s structure is undeniably captivating, and its randomly branching paths have me pondering over alternative outcomes and secret possibilities between play sessions.” – Nat Smith, PCGamesN

Rock Paper Shotgun – Unscored: Double the Fun, Double the Action!

“Remnant 2 excels in every aspect, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. If you’re up for a rematch, you can ‘re-roll’ the campaign, which completely reconstructs the game with a random assortment of areas and bosses. You can even reroll entire planets if you just can’t get enough of your favorite location. This sequel builds upon the accomplishments of its predecessor, resulting in an extraordinary achievement that I’ll be playing regularly for years to come.” – Jason Coles, Rock Paper Shotgun

Xbox Era – 7.6/10: A Brilliant Gem with a Few Flaws!

“Remnant 2 tantalizes with greatness but falls just short due to a few questionable choices. It’s stunning, plays like a dream, and should definitely be on everyone’s radar for the best releases of the year. While I’m not sure if my gripes can be easily patched out, I sincerely hope the developers at Gunfire Games shower this game with the same love and attention the first one received over time.” – Jesse Norris, Xbox Era

GameTopic – Unscored: Borrowed Brilliance or Identity Crisis?

“Remnant 2’s biggest crime is its lack of identity. Don’t get me wrong, it has a strong foundation, but the nonchalant way it borrows elements from legendary titles like the Souls series, God of War, Control, and Returnal merely reminds me of all the truly remarkable games I could be playing instead.” – Ian Walker, GameTopic

So, there you have it! Remnant 2 is receiving quite the warm welcome from critics, and it’s definitely shaping up to be a worthwhile shooter experience. Whether you crave thrilling combat, an expanding arsenal of skills, or the excitement of procedural generation, this game will get its hooks into you and never let go.

Now grab your controller, lock and load, and get ready for a wild ride with Remnant 2: The Future of Shooters is here!
