Well, I am conflicted about this. Second game in a serious and I am still feeling cold about it. Don`t get me wrong, Elex 1-2 is decent, but I still would rather play PBs old game design with pseudo-open world like in Gothic 1 and 2, where you had interconnected zones, that way devs had way more time ( and less space ) to populate and fine small details for immersion, instead of big and mostly dead open world.

But I digress, speaking only about Elex 2 now. Well, if you played Elex 1 then its more or less the same but with improved gameplay. Story isnt something revelation like, but it does have its own moments, cringy moments too, nobody gonna be left unattended, so to speak. Some visual glitches now and then. companions stuck and quests forgetting to tell you where to go, so you need to google or go to log and use markers are downsides for sure, but nothing gamebreaking, getting 100% wasn`t overly hard.

Soo, should you buy it? Well, if you know what PB games are and know into what are you getting in, then sure, its decent game, specially if its on discount, I enjoyed playing it.

And if you have no idea about previous PB games, then...I suggest you to look more reviews and " lets plays " since this games are not exactly mainstream friendly.
