Zach Starr of PopCults.com writes "This is a solid game; it looks nice and plays great. The short comings are the lack luster story and writing. I understand that this game is an homage to retro gaming, but this game can stand on its own without the constant references to the classics. I can’t help but feel that the game suffers from this, a lot of the time the jokes felt forced and they are far too frequent. If this game was taken a bit more seriously it has the potential to be a modern day classic. Despite these things, I would recommend Evoland 2 to anyone that is a fan of action/adventure retro style games. "
