GGA Game Review: AXIOM VERGE 2 – Familiar, Yet Different

A sequel can be a dangerous thing. It’s high risk, high reward. Change too much and you have a game that players may complain that it loses the essence of the original. Change too little and players may complain that all you’ve done is re-skinned the original. I was very excited for this sequel since the first of the series was my personal game of the year when it was released in 2015. So, where does Axiom Verge 2 fall on the great sequel scale? It comes so close to delivering, but there’s just something missing. Keep reading and all will be revealed.

Review: A Great Metroidvania, Axiom Verge 2 Subverts Conventions

I came to Axiom Verge late, only playing the first game in series just a year or so ago. I knew it was considered one of the best retro-inspired modern metroidvanias, and it borrowed visually from one of my favorite games of all time: Metroid. Thematically and story-wise, Axiom Verge was its own thing. Axiom Verge 2 takes this even further away from Metroid, while solidly planting the roots for its own IP.

It's a melee weapon that you can only use with Damu, the remote-controlled drone found in Mount Ebih. Pressing the assigned basic attack button and Damu will use the razor. It has a unique attack, but you can add a charge attack by collecting the Arm Usan Rah in Giguna Steppes (Breach).

Axiom Verge 2 Review – On the Verge of Greatness

I have a soft spot for many takes on the Metroidvania genre. Unfortunately, aside from the Metroid series proper, none have truly captured what I adore about the genre. These non-Metroid titles instead opt for RPG mechanics to help the player brute-force their way through bosses. When the original Axiom Verge was released, I was enthralled from the moment I began playing it. The world felt grand and encouraged you to explore as much as possible. The sequel, Axiom Verge 2, captivated me in the same way.

Axiom Verge 2 Review: the sequel to a great Metroidvania classic

Thomas Happ takes up and expands the Axiom Verge universe in a metroidvania quite different from its illustrious predecessor. When it comes to metroidvania, Axiom Verge is one of those names that doesn’t take long to be brought up, substantially praised by all admirers of the genre. The reason is simple and has to do with its indisputable overall qualities, the result of the work of a lone developer, Thomas “Tom” Happ, to whom we owe what is probably the closest indie work to the immortal Super Metroid in in terms of style, gameplay and structure of the game world. An almost perfect center (to find out more, please refer to the review of Axiom Verge), one that makes us hope that the author will find a way to re-propose his creature in the form of a second episode, even if only a simple “more of the same “.

Review: Axiom Verge 2

One of my absolute favorite games of the last generation was Thomas Happ’s Axiom Verge. The game took the best parts of classic Metroidvania-style experiences but put its own spin on it, with exploration and combat being molded by the tons of different weapons and abilities you would find while exploring its bizarre alien world. Ever since I finished it (the first time around) I wanted more from the series. More to see, more to discover, and of course more to collect. That dream was finally answered last week when Axiom Verge 2 was released, rather suddenly, on a handful of systems. Of course, I downloaded it right away and cleared my calendar to be able to put as much time as possible into this really hotly awaited game for me. What I found was not at all what I expected.

Axiom Verge 2 review – on the verge of greatness

The term Metroidvania is fairly ubiquitous nowadays, with the action/platforming genre being represented incredibly well with huge releases like Hollow Knight, the Ori games, and even smaller titles like Blasphemous to name just a few. What Axiom Verge managed though, was an almost perfect distillation of the Metroid side of that portmanteau, but with an interesting modern twist.

[Review] Axiom Verge 2 – Nintendo Switch

The long-awaited sequel to Axiom Verge, Axiom Verge 2 expands on the universe with completely new characters, abilities, and gameplay. Axiom Verge 2 is an action-adventure Metroidvania by developer and publisher Thomas Happ Games that received a surprise release as part of Nintendo’s latest indie showcase. This sequel is set in the same universe and follows in the vein of the first, but is a fairly self-contained experience. Although it introduces new characters and enemies, little is changed at its core. The biggest difference returning players will find is that instead of guns, the combat is based around melee weapons.

Axiom Verge 2 Review: From Metroid with Love

Axiom Verge 2 marks a fine return to form for the indie darling, providing fans with a compelling adventure worthy of its Metroid-influences roots. Axiom Verge was an indie hit thanks to its unabashed love and devotion to Metroid. The game copied the form of Nintendo's classic 8-bit creation and felt as if it could have been a lost gem from that bygone era.
