The Surge 2 PC Review

The Surge 2 PC Review

Hi guys! Today I will talk about The Surge 2. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

The Surge 2 PC Review


The story of Surge 2 continues the story of the first game, but you don’t play as the same character. In Surge 2 there isn’t a standard protagonist meaning everyone creates their own character however they like it.

I can’t say I was impressed by the story of Surge 2. There weren’t many cutscenes so you get most of the story through talking to the NPC or listening to audio logs. I am not a fan of that approach. I prefer watching the cinematics.

The storytelling didn’t make me care enough to invest time figuring out everything that was going on. Some may enjoy this kind of storytelling but I am not really a fan of it. Maybe you will enjoy it more than I did if you like this kind of storytelling.


Surge 2 has improved a lot of what the first Surge did. It added a new parry system even though I never used it because I don’t like that kind of parry mechanic I know that there are people who will like it and use it very often.

The cutting limbs mechanic is better and more fluid than then first Surge and the combat also. The level design is as good as before and you will certainly enjoy exploring the areas.

Now let’s talk about the weapons and gear that are available in the game. There are a lot of new types of weapons and armors in Surge 2 and some of them are really fun to use. Some weapons and armors return from the previous game.

Just like in the first game you have to cut the limbs of enemies to collect armor schematics and materials to upgrade your weapon and armor.

It isn’t very hard to collect materials to upgrade your armor in this game because most of the time you will find the enemies you need to get materials from right next to checkpoint locations.

I think this was a good decision by the developers because if you had to walk far from the checkpoint to farm it would waste a lot of time, it would become a really tedious task and it wouldn’t offer any more challenge to the game.

As for the enemies and bosses that you will face in the game, I have to say I didn’t find the game very difficult. I think this was the easiest soulslike game I have played till now. Maybe the difficulty increases a lot in new game plus mode but the base difficulty of this game is just like any other game’s hard difficulty.

The bosses of the game are interesting and in some of the boss fights, you will have to think about what is the best approach to beat the enemy.

The base enemies that you will face as you roam around the map have a lot of variety so you will never think that you fight the same enemies all the time.


The visuals of Surge 2 are what you would expect from a game made in 2019. Nothing extraordinary, but that’s not really a bad thing. The one thing I have to say is that you won’t be disappointed by the visuals.

As for the customization, in Surge 2 you can create your own character. Although I have to say that the character creation system is pretty limited. It doesn’t allow you to change many things and I am a little disappointed by it.

On the other hand, there are barely any cutscenes that will show your character so you won’t be seeing your characters face a lot. Also while you are playing the game you are equipped with full rig so you won’t see almost anything besides the armor that you wear.

There are some pretty cool looking armors that you can equip and they have good stats too so you probably won’t wear something that looks terrible just for the stats.

Final Thoughts

The Surge 2 is a very good game that I wholeheartedly recommend for those people that like soulslike games or want a somewhat challenging game. It improves upon everything that the first Surge did and polishes a lot of its mechanics.

The visuals are what you would expect from a 2019 game and there some interesting bosses for you to fight.

The only thing that I recommend is that you will wait for a sale since I don’t believe it’s worth the full price.

Final Verdict

Storyline: 8.0

Gameplay: 9.0

Visuals: 9.0

General Rating: 8.6
