Guacamelee! 2 - Analysis

Author: Juan Garcรญa

It seems that it was yesterday when we could get into Juan's shoes and beat Calaca in the first installment of Guacamelee ... But the truth is that it has been 5 years since the original premiere of that magnificent metroidvania, on PS3 and PS Vita. Then I ended up coming to the current generation of consoles, after which its creators began to create Severed, which came out in 2016 for PS Vita. After that was when Drinkbox got down to business with Guacamelee! 2, which comes to us today in PS4 and PC format.

If you missed the first installment, it was a full-fledged metroidvania, with a constant growth of the protagonist of the adventure, secrets hidden almost in every corner of the map, an accessible, but complex combat system, and lots of references to the popular culture to other video games. Oh, and all bathed in Mexican culture, with skulls, wrestling, guitar music ... A most peculiar cocktail that managed to 'click' on people , and which earned the studio worldwide recognition.

In this way, swords are on high for its sequel, Guacamelee! 2 that, to the surprise of no one, follows the dictation of the first part. Everything we have put in the previous paragraph also applies on this occasion, thus eliminating part of the surprise effect. However, Drinkbox has wanted to go a little further in almost everything, perfecting, expanding and changing everything that can be improved for this sequel. Thus, we find that the possibility of becoming a chicken is further exploited this time, with its own powers, unique explorable areas and even a distinctive growth tree. The character progression also changes, with five different trainers that allow us to learn and enhance new combat movements. Finally, the 'parody' roll of other games also goes one step further , with reproductions of scenes from different games such as Street Fighter II, Final Fantasy, Double Dragon, or parodies of even current industry trends such as hate on social networks. or the looteo mechanics of mobile games. Of course, we will continue to find posters, phrases and more of all kinds of titles, in addition to these large-scale parodies.

The argument this time is still little more than an excuse for us to tour the different parts of the world, but it has its grace. This time an ex-fighter named Salvador and his panda try to get the Sacred Guacamole, but this will cause the different universes of the Mexiverse to end up colliding, which would mean the end of time. That is why Uay Chivo seeks us, once again, so that we put on the mask of a fighter and save humanity . The excuse for having to relearn the powers of the first game is the point: several years have passed since the end of the first game, and now we are a family man with a generous belly. It's time to explore again, fight and get your batteries back to get fit again.

After this initial approach, it is necessary to jump a thousand and one times, fight with a wide variety of enemies and learn lots of new mechanics as we advance. That is, nothing that is a special novelty ... But as it happened with Guacamelee, the control is perfect, the rhythm of the game nailed it and everything is so fun that you will end up taking 'one more walk' before turning off your console or PC. We can say, without fear of being wrong, that Guacamelee! 2 is one of the most addictive games we've ever tried, especially if you like the metroidvania genre. All its pieces move to the same are (the one of the Mexican guitars), and you will spend the 8-9 hours that the game lasts (although if you want to find the pieces of the key and the hidden chests it will take a little longer) quite fast. After that a difficult mode is unlocked, and we will always have the option of trying to beat the record time of finishing the game on your online markers.

However, we have to say that not everything is perfect, as we have found that the difficulty curve does not scale too well, reaching a point where the complication comes more from hitting the right buttons at the right time, than to be a traditional challenge. For us to understand each other: the most advanced sections test your digital skills as a dance game does with your motor skills, making the challenge of Guacamelee! 2 is somewhat different than usual in the genre. Such is the point of demand that there have been times when we have ended up with hand pain, playing with the Xbox One controller in the PC version of the game (the development team itself recommends the use of a controller for this title). This could be considered the biggest mole in the game, beyond the loss of the surprise factor and freshness of the original, being Guacamelee! 2 a title that could be classified as a continuationist.

There is no denying the evolution in each and every one of its aspects , starting with the mechanics, and culminating in the technical sections, which are still simplistic, but now enjoy an extra level of detail (such as killing enemies by staining the stage of his blood) and have new lighting / visual effects. The sound effects and music do not change too much and remain correct throughout the adventure, maintaining the style and good humor that characterizes Guacamelee! two.

The last piece of the puzzle of this game is its multiplayer section, which also grows to allow a total of 4 players , while in the original game only 2 users could participate at the same time. An extra dose of madness and fun, in case Guacamelee! 2 wasn't crazy enough anymore. It is not an intrusive game mode, as it can be played as well solo, as it is in company, and players can enter and exit the game without major problems, almost at any time. And to differentiate between them, there are lots of skins hidden by the map, an extra for us to explore the recesses of this peculiar mexiverse.
