Hades 2 is a rogue-like action role-playing game that embraces its role as a sequel, especially within the realm of roguelikes. From its swift-pen art style to its evocative soundtrack and even down to the smallest details like menus, fonts, and UI choices, the game exudes a sense of continuity. It's intriguingly paradoxical; the immediate feeling of familiarity is perhaps the most perplexing aspect of Hades 2 as if stepping right back into a home you never left.

A variety of builds won't allow you to get bored

Hades 2 takes the already stellar variety of gameplay from its predecessor and elevates it to new heights. The game offers an astonishing array of options for building your character, ensuring that each run feels fresh and engaging.

What sets Hades 2 apart is its ability to make every build viable and exciting. While some builds may be stronger than others, the beauty lies in the fact that you always feel empowered to push further, regardless of your chosen path. Unlike many roguelites that can leave you feeling doomed due to lacklustre upgrades, Hades 2 keeps you in the game with a sense of potential and progress.

Each run, whether focused on traps or brute force, taught me valuable lessons and provided a unique and satisfying gameplay experience. Hades 2 excels in delivering diverse and enjoyable runs, ensuring that boredom is never an option. Every encounter is a chance to learn, adapt, and revel in the thrill of discovery.

The gameplay is engaging and rewarding

The strengths of Hades 2 build upon the solid foundation of its predecessor, with noticeable enhancements across the board. However, where this sequel truly shines is in the remarkable depth and diversity of its regions. Each area is a distinct experience, offering a refreshing departure from the familiar.

In particular, the third Underworld region stands out as a sprawling series of open fields. Here, players must navigate through multiple encounters, strategically clearing obstacles and claiming rewards before advancing further. This dynamic structure adds a layer of depth and challenge, keeping gameplay engaging and rewarding.

Areas in Hades 2 introduce a fresh set of challenges, enemies, and bosses, showcasing Supergiant's creativity and innovation in level design. Without giving away too much, these levels promise a thrilling departure from the underworld, providing a diverse and captivating experience for players willing to explore beyond the depths.

Bottom Line

Hades 2 transcends the typical sequel formula. It captures the addictive core of its predecessor – the lightning-fast combat, strategic boon selection, and ever-shifting dungeons – but infuses it with clever innovations. The new mana system for casting spells adds a layer of thoughtful resource management, while the unique dual-world structure keeps exploration exciting. Even in Early Access, Hades 2 establishes itself as a masterclass in rogue-lite design, offering constant challenges and surprising delights with each run.

While the story remains a work in progress, the character interactions and world-building are already stellar. Fans of the original Hades will find this sequel an essential experience. Newcomers to the series, meanwhile, will be drawn into a beautiful world filled with addictive gameplay and a cast of unforgettable characters.
