Good price, but not keen on the tat.
Hmmm, tempting. But I hated the first one. Have you played it michael? Any improvement? Heat added.

If you hated the first one how can you possibly be interested in this one? This one is an improvement but what would it take to reverse being hated? It would have to be completely different, which this isnt. I wouldn't recommend this to you if that's the case, this game has better combat and variety but it's the same template.

Games improve. Stories get better. There are many examples out there. Division one wasn’t that great but the second one turned out great. But perhaps I should’ve been clearer. Game mechanics was just like any other soulborbe game. The story and the environment was boring. The boss fights was an absolute drag and the movements were intentionally slow. Has that improved or you’d rather tell me to avoid because I hated first one?

The story is nothing special, the environments are much better. The combat and weapons are better. Fights can still be long. It all depends on how much you hated the first one. Hate is such a strong term that I'd be surprised if you like this one even though it's better in every way than the first, but at its core it's still punishing souls-like gameplay that requires thoughtful play.

Like you said The Surge belongs in the Soulsborne genre of games and it was actually one of the better ones. The criticisms you have of it seem to me to be more about your personal taste than problems with the game design because to me it played like the 'Dark Souls in Space' with a twist that I was expecting. Thats not to say it was perfect; it got repetitive, some Boss fights weren't engaging but overall it was a good game.

In my opinion if you hated it I dont see how you'd like The Surge 2 even if it improves on the first one. Perhaps dont buy this special edition but buy the cheaper standard version if you fancy taking a punt on liking this one more.

You could never compare the first one and call it the “dark souls in space”. First one was a lazy game with an effort to mimic dark souls. If DS made a reputation for itself amongst gamers but Surge one dropped to £5 after a few months was because DS had a lore and Surge was as shallow as being in empty space.

Hate might be a strong term but thinking Surge one was one of the better soulborbe games is just as big. I don’t think it’s my personal taste, it’s what a lot of people have experienced and expressed. I have played all major soulborbe games with the exception of sekiro and I can safely say Surge one was one of the weakest and cheapest one of all.

Since you’re insisting this is just as bad as the first one, I shall steer well clear until it hits the bargain bins which won’t be long.

Fair enough. I will say that this one is most definitely better than the first and addresses criticisms people had about the first, but yes to be on the safe side and save your money, by all means wait until it drops its price like the first one. Shouldn't be much longer

Improved but as you vaguely mentioned with no story. I’ll take the advice and wait.
