Review: Deadly Premonition 2 is a buggy mess, but fans will still love it

Fans of the original Deadly Premonition need not worry: this sequel’s tone is spot on, offering another delightfully delirious adventure in absurdity. Unfortunately, its technical issues are among the worst of any reasonably high-profile game in living memory: this will drastically affect the enjoyment factor for all but the most die-hard devotees.

  • Brilliantly bizarre dialogue that’s often hilarious
  • Will have you keen to find out what happens next
  • Riddled with bugs and has an atrocious frame rate
  • No option to invert right stick at launch
2 / 5
