BlackGuards 2 is the sequel to BlackGuards. The first thing I noticed about Black Guards 2 is how much better it looks than it’s predecessor. The second thing I noticed was the lack of a character creator. If I’m not mistaken BlackGuards 1 let us create our own character. We got to choose from a male or female and build them up however we chose to.
BlackGuards 2 does not do this. Instead we get to play as Cassia, a woman that was locked away in the dungeons. I was upset when I learned that I couldn’t create a character, but once I saw how interesting of a character Cassia was I no longer cared if I could create my own protagonist.
Cassia is one messed up woman. At first she’s just your normal girl locked in a dungeon with no hope of ever escaping, but as time goes by she slowly loses her mind until there’s nothing left, but the desire to rule the world. She is terribly scarred and hides her face behind a mask.
I’m very interested to find out what happens next in the story. The meat of this game is the gameplay. If you’ve played BlackGuards 1 than you’ll know your way around the battlefield with ease. It’s the exact same setup, but it’s a little easier to navigate the battlefield this time around.
You can left click on your chosen character to bring up their skills before each attack. Once you’ve chosen your skill you simply click on an enemy and watch them die.
The beginning of BlackGuards 2 was nothing short of great. Escaping from that dungeon that nearly drove Cassia insane was awesome. I love how she’s not some pretty girl too. She was once a very beautiful woman, but spider venom really messed her up. I think it drove her a little crazy too, but if I was trapped in a dungeon for years with nothing but spiders to talk to I would be a little crazy too.
BlackGuards 2 has a good pace going for it right now. Lets hope the intrigue continues as I progress further into the game. I don’t have an estimate on when I’ll finish this game, but it should be before the release date.
BlackGuards 2 is set to be released on January 20th.
