The Untold Stories of Lovecraft 2 it’s the new game LLC Buy Gamescreators of the first part of the saga. It’s an action RPG with roguelike elements based on Lovecraft’s mythos. We will see the changes it had compared to the first part and how the study could not adapt to it.
say that This is the second attempt on my part to do the analysis. The title was launched with so many problems that after a few hours I decided to wait for a patch and avoid a bad experience Which is certainly still there.
Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 Gameplay
Gameplay is based on explore a procedurally generated area full of enemies while looting the boxes we find, we avoid traps and we choose at all times which area to move to by looking at the map.
Before the patch, we could loot almost anything in the scenarios
We can create healing items and other utensils with the materials found in addition to pieces of armor and outfits.
The enemies are not very varied to sayThere are very curious ones, yes, like the sectarian group, where you will have to look for the boss. The rest is pure Lovecraft, loaded with tentacles and impossible shapesvery well designed.
fight and control
As for combat and movement, it’s somewhat problematic, we move and shoot in all directions, we can also throw grenades and other objects in addition to having a large arsenal available for each character. So far, so good the premise is good, not so much the execution.
The remote control is imperfect and incomplete, there are menu items and some attacks that aren’t very accessible or don’t exist without the keyboard. The movement also becomes somewhat clunky and slow.
Enemies don’t give you a truce, especially before the patch, our character. Whichever we picked was extremely slow, slow reloaded, and slow fired, so enemies they ended up cornering you
After the patch, our characters are faster and reload sooner, but the experience remains frustrating. Enemies, though fewer in number, still pin you down and balance needs to be improved. You can literally spend hours, fortunately, moving forward in a screen if the generation of the map, enemies and objects allows it.
The graphics section and technical issues
Graphically the game is very nicewe’ve gone from the pixelated style of the first installment to something softer, hand-drawn that certainly It goes very well with the Lovecraft universe. The animations are not entirely fluid.
Technically, I encountered all kinds of problems, crashes, jerks, visual bugs, etc.Additionally, if you are playing in ultra-wide resolutions, you may experience visual inconsistencies.
The soundtrack is catchythere are some songs more emotional than others but it always accompanies, there is not much more to say about it.
Final Ranking of Lovecraft 2 Untold Stories
The Untold Stories of Lovecraft 2 It’s a game that gives the feeling of not having enough affection, or of having suffered problems during its development. The first episode had very good ideas and achieved them with more or less certainty but this second part does practically nothing good.
The glitches, control, balance, and overall experience leave a lot to be desired.. On the other hand, the artistic theme abandons the pixelart style and opts for drawn sprites, which together with the level design manage to fully immerse you in the world of Lovecraft.
Even so, the balance inevitably falls to the negative side, leaving a frustrating and not recommendable final experience.
