Fuck the hallway of arms and fuck those mannequins.

just when i thought that little shit couldn't be a bigger asshole

This is a weird one for me. It is the first one turned up to 11. The highs are high - it looks stunning, it sounds great, and when the chase is on or the puzzles are making you think without being frustrating, it is an excellent experience.
Yet the downs are more pronounced than before. The trial and error nature of certain encounters, the much too frequent "fights", the times the controls make your, life more difficult... It's all makes a comeback.
The first two areas are excellent, and then the quality nosedives. The later ones still look incredible, but each encounter seems to become less and less interesting, outside of the first one or two moments where new abilities are used.
Despite its short length, I wouldn't recommend playing this in one or two sittings. The frustration of each repeated fail and new attempt at the same obstacle detracts from the enjoyment and the overall creepy atmosphere. It's less scary than the first one, and it becomes less so over it's running time.
Still an experience worth having.

damn I DO have little nightmares about the endless cycle of violence

Little Nightmares 2 brings a unique vibe to video game platformers. I'm not quite sure it lifts to the heights of masterpieces like Inside, but it sure comes close.
