    It's just really bad. In the last game you had to balance defending your base with allowing minions to enter and leave quickly. In 2 the entrance/casino means nothing and you build a warcraft 3-style Tower Maze to keep agents out. You can't even use random objects in your base to interrogate agents anymore. Plus the way bodybags work is fricked.

        The bodybags thing is just baffling. First they make it so even minions leave body bags behind, then they give you an incinerator to delete them from the world instead of needing to store them until they decay.

        And when the game came out, EG buffs only affected idle minions and not ones interacting with objects.

          What I really dislike is how limited the traps are. You can't really make perma-mazes like you could in 1 and most of the competent agents just completely ignore them anyway so you gotta use either casino or guards to deal with them anyway.

          Also the dirt needing tech to be dug out severely limiting your layouts until endgame is ultra gay.

          I'd say the game is worth the 3 bucks for a single playthrough though, it's not like it's unplayable, just very meh.

            This is the most tedious, unfun, and boring part of the game and it takes HOURS to min/max your casino/traps and the devs for some insane reason think it should be a critical part of the gameplay.
            I don't hate the game at all, the art looks good, there's a metric frickload of content and plenty of micromanaging if you like making your rooms look pretty but the things that are bad (world map tedium) are infuriating

      Well, you can turn your entrance into the maze where the intruders have to use every distraction before getting to your base. Either way, if you don't do either, you will get raided constantly and death spiral

    How's the soundtrack? The ambience of the first game was very calming and methodical.
    They don't have the ambient music on the soundtrack, but they thankfully have the hidden song for when you stare out at the sea for long enough.

    I played it on GAEMPASS because Rebellion are megaspergs about piracy. Turns out it's pretty mediocre if still playable, just inferior to the first game. I'm kinda tempted to just pay the $3 to own it for real, but it's a hard sell considering all of the season pass nonsense

        Basically it's easier than EG1 while having less charm and more weird restrictions on base construction/layouts. Depending on your thoughts on EG1 you can probably forgive it being easier (because EG1's difficulty curve was all over the place at times) and being less charming because the original is hard to compete with. If you enjoyed the first game then I'd probably consider it worth a few dollars but don't expect it to be as fun. It's like Red Alert 3, a solid game that is trying to compete with a great one and comes off looking worse than it really is.

        So the general is is that the first one is overall better?

        I tried the first one but found it very easy on the first island so much that I gave up after getting the crime lords to meet

        Maybe I'm just a GOD GAMER but I had my base get nuked at least twice in the first game. I can't really remember anything like that happening in the second.

            I don't think there are any cheats but I played the game before most of the season pass content was out so maybe it got added. Hope you enjoy it, I'll probably buy the Deluxe edition and play through the new content whatever it is.

          EG1 is better reminisced about then actually playing. I know because I played EG1 ans EG2 one after another.
          EG1 everyone ignored traps or it caught more minions than agents, felt more like a tower defence game, hotels were useless and world map was tedious pain.
          EG2 "fixes" this but now the only difficulty is gone and the game plays itself

          Evil Genius never really had good gamplay, just the theme and "soul"

        Oh buggy as hell, constant alarm sounds to keep minions armed and all that. EG2 looked great, still does, it's a nice fresh coat of paint. It did fix a lot of things, but it definitely lost a lot of its base building soul the first game had. I got EG2, The Season Pass and the special trophy item.

        It scratched the itch a little, but I still find myself looking back to EG1 with mods.

    At least half of the henchmen are utterly useless, it's neat that your genius can help in combat now but only Ivan is good at it.
    Investigators will kill the social minion sent to distract them, take a photograph of the body bag, then leave with that as their evidence.
    Casinos are a terrible way to get money and doing world map actions to boost their attendance doesn't even do anything. In a worst case scenario it even makes investigators less likely to use the distractions because they're full!
    The size of some items are way too big, and as you have to deal with certain sections of your base being progress locked you're kind of fricked.
    Traps are 200 percent neutered and not really worth it most times as just about everyone can just disarm them.
    All super agents just teleport into your base and go to scripted locations so good fricking luck buddy
    It's designed like a phone game (as in game director formerly only worked on phone games before getting this) and it shows. It really is waiting for bars to fill. You can only do one research at a time and there is a LOT of it. It feels like every stage should be asking you to skip the wait with premium currency

    Am I missing anything else on why this title is dog water?
