Grab The Games: Monstrum 2
Another day, another review for our fans, and this time, we got our hands on a title that not only I couldn't wait to play since it was announced, but also I wanted to see if it was as good as the first title. But is the game worth your attention, you may ask? Well, stick around, and you will find out. A few things about the game first. Monstrum 2 is an asymmetric multiplayer game for those looking to take survival horror to the next level.
Pit yourself against a terrifying monster as a team of up to 4 human prisoners, locked in a tactical struggle to escape a decrepit sea fortress, or play as one of the many horrifying monstrosities hunting them down. Use your wits and cunning to navigate a complex, procedurally generated metal labyrinth that changes the layout, puzzles, items, and obstacles with each playthrough, keeping each match dynamic for humans and monsters alike.
To begin with, unfortunately, there are only a few positive aspects to mention for the remake. I loved the art style, the graphics are quite good, but honestly, they could have been better. Moreover, I loved the procedurally generated sea fortress and the horror atmosphere it created. The concept is intriguing; with different players taking the role of a monster or a prisoner that tries to escape this nightmare facility. The game offers the chance to explore and discover what you should do to escape.
As far as the negative aspects are concerned, unfortunately, there are a lot. The physics of this title is terrible. The animations and sounds definitely need considerable improvement. There are also a few bugs that I am pretty sure they will be addressed soon. Furthermore, there are only a few people playing the game right now. I also mentioned the graphics before, that in my opinion, they could have been way better and cleaner. Most of the players were disappointed because they expected a more single-player experience than a multiplayer-only title.
To sum up, honestly, I expected more from it that didn't deliver in the end, more improvements, better graphics, etc. I can't recommend it at all at this state. I genuinely believe that the game could have been better with more updates and guidance from the community.
