A Plague Tale: Requiem

released on Oct 18, 2022

A Plague Tale: Requiem is an action-adventure game similar to its predecessor. The player assumes control of Amicia and must face against both soldiers from the French Inquisition and hordes of rats that are spreading the black plague. Gameplay is largely similar to the first game, though the combat system is significantly expanded. The game features a progression system in which the player will be awarded additional skills and abilities. Stealth players will unlock skills that allow them to sneak around more efficiently, while those who prefer a more lethal approach will unlock additional combat skills. Locations are also larger, giving players additional options to progress.

Le moment en Open World trop trop bien et le jeu est putain de beau ! cocorico

Conseguiu superar o primeiro em questao de enredo e qualidade visual gameplay permaneceu quase igual

The first game in the franchise got me hooked that I got this immediately to try! What a step up from the first man!! Thrilling gameplay with the ending that made me emotional. Highly recommended!

boring first half and thrilling final quarter of the game

A great sequel game. It has tremendous graphics and atmosphere, with more rats, more weapons and more action. The game continued the stealth-based gameplay of the first game and new alchemy materials have been added that you can use against enemies. There are also sequences and weapons where you can get into the action rather than stealth, which is a good feature that diversifies the gameplay. As for the story part, a very successful job was done for a sequel game. There are some places in the story where there is a logical inconsistency, but in general, it has a very gripping story. The fact that the characters you encounter throughout the game also have some good features that will help you in the game has been a nice variety on the gameplay side. The most successful part I found was the graphics, atmosphere, texture details and lighting. This may be the biggest improvement over the first game. If you liked Innocence, I think you will definitely like Requiem.

This review contains spoilers

Despite having one of the best-performed protagonists in modern gaming, this sequel doesn't iterate enough on its design. The limited skills and resources feel obnoxious this time around, and the more the story reveals about its lore the more it takes away from the characters' personal journey. I'm hopeful a third entree, with Amicia starting her own journey without Hugo in tow, will give the franchise more room to grow.
