Frame-rate Challenge Mode:
Sometimes the internet leaks into games, and even Zeno Clash 2 can’t escape. In this unique challenge, surreal wireframe enemies begin spawning with increasing frequency. The enemies still require skill to beat, but the waves are only limited by one thing: the PC’s performance. Eking every last ounce of computational horsepower will be the key to surviving as long as possible in this highly unusual challenge.

Coliseum Challenge Mode:
This wave-based attack mode will push players to the limit. 50 waves of enemies will spawn, with increasing difficulty. True mastery of Zeno Clash 2’s first-person combat system of deadly combos will lead brawlers to victory, but there is some respite between rounds as players will have access to the store to buy weapons, power-ups, even allies. Unlike the game, there’s no restriction on the number of allies either, so get ready for the most intense, all-out, battle royale in all of Zenozoik.

Ediţia Specială

The Special Edition for Zeno Clash 2 includes:

  • ‘The Art of ‘Zenozoik’ digital artbook
  • Zeno Clash 2 Original Soundtrack

Despre acest joc

Ghat's story is far from over: Zeno Clash 2 picks up where the deliciously brazen first game left off. After 4 years of waiting, the sequel to the surreal first-person brawler brings more variety in combat and levels, and even more bizarre storytelling into the beguiling world of Zenozoik. Join forces with your former foe Rimat and battle against scores of angry denizens, preventing their dastardly machinations from being realized.

Zeno Clash 2 welcomes new players to the Zeno Clash universe with a new game that will bring them into the universe and fill them in on the backstory. Returning players will delight in the connections between the new settings and the first adventure. All players will thoroughly enjoy playing a first-person brawler that provides a rarity in modern gaming: a truly unique experience.

Zeno Clash 2 has beefed up its combat engine with precision punch targeting, blocking, and high-impact hits that only make the bone-crunching, face-rattling fistcuffs more satisfying. The new "Lock-on" function gives players a wider range of control for dishing out the damage. New RPG mechanics will allow Ghat and Rimat to punch harder, defend better, and recruit more powerful allies to aid in their quest. Zeno Clash 2 now harnesses the full power of the Unreal III engine to bring the bizarre and beautiful world of Zenozoik to life. ACE Team's boundless imagination brings gamers into a universe of surreal foes, fantastic locations, and truly unique visuals that is unlike anything else you will ever play. With the newly added drop-in/drop-out co-op play, Zeno Clash 2 invites you AND a friend to dive once more into the fray!

As in Zeno Clash 1, the bashing from a first person perspective is comfortable grip, intuitive and tactically. You don't just punch and kick, but dodge an incoming blow and ram a fist into your enemy's unsuspecting head. You grab beat an enemy and throw them into the clutches of the pain. All in a world whose idea of conceptual art has a post-it note "Buy more drugs". There are some strange creatures, giant tongues with limbs, horned wookiees, the freakish Foot Collector dwarf, clockwork zombies, and stocky elephant men, just to name a few.
The story is very simple, defeat a big bad Golem and save the world. If that makes no sense to you, it’s your fault for not playing the first Zeno Clash you turkey, as the sequel makes no bones about referencing events in its predecessor.
So you're abruptly dropped into this crazy world without any sort of preamble about what's going on.

The fight is immensely satisfying and laid a solid punch behind solid punches. In Zeno Clash 2 almost every battle is against multiple opponents, often overwhelmingly. It's a brutal combat style that worked great in the first game, and unsurprisingly does so here too. It's arguably the best first-person melee ever, bringing a little Punch-Out! into a gloriously crazy fantasy world. The game features an upgrade system where you can put points into a number of different stats — health, attack power, etc. But you gain these upgrade points by finding totems that are tucked into corners and cubbyholes across each level.

There are fantastic and fantastic sights to almost anywhere in the world , a couple looking so stunning you just stop for a while and make sure that you got a screenshot. there’s the open world, which is really more a series of static, semi-linear environments that you can freely travel between when not in the middle of a story segment.

If you're looking for something different, Zeno Clash II is maybe your game. An exercise in apathy, neither Solid nor Liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit 'meh. Zeno Clash 2 will not be for everyone, and its low budget does show through. It's worth experiencing for those who loved the original, because it still contains a lot of what made that title unique, and the combat when not descending into huge brawls is wonderful. The game is for genre fans, but at least you can still punch bird people.

Score: 63 / 100

This is kinda a good game, it will nicely surprise you.

Start of the game and gameplay are not on the GOTY levels, but this game is funny and really interesting. You will be seeking and revealing mysteries of it's semi-open world. The game looks much surrealistic and in some parts you feel like "is this part of the story or what, where am I?", it's mindblowing so much that even Salvador Dali would had found inspiration in it. On the other side I didn't like character control and other gameplay things, which sometimes drove me crazy.

Zeno Clash 2 is way too underrated... It's so much better than the original game, yet almost the same... feels like developers made a game that first Zeno Clash was meant to be.

Best attribute of this game: it's entertaining! That's a win for me. Most modern AAA games are not as entertaining as this game.
Zeno Clash 2 features:

+Interesting world / story.
+Gameplay / combat is challenging and well balanced.
+Game visuals / characters / levels are gorgeous (Seriously, I took 100+ screenshots while playing it).
+Immersive, beautiful soundtrack.
+I really like voice acting in this game.
+Skill points granted for exploring and not for killing stuff.
+You don't have to take part in every random encounter / fight your way through a level you've already visited... or you can, if you really like to punch faces :D

All this makes you want to come back to the world of Zenozoik and explore it. Of course, some things could be done better:

-Most cutscenes are a bit lifeless (despite good voice acting).
-The biggest and potentially most difficult encounter during the story can be easily avoided by running to the level transition.

So yeah, I highly recommend this game, it's really charming and brings out unique experience!

First off, if you haven't play the first Zeno Clash, it will be impossible to grasp the continuing story. So go play that first. Beyond its awesome melee combat system, words still don't do this game justice. It's just something that has to be experienced firsthand. This second Zeno Clash builds upon the first making it more open world, adding a few usable items for your character, and adds some new combat moves. The story, characters, monsters, weapons, and scenery are just as wacky as the first. The only thing I didn't like was the new "Lock-on" feature which seemed to make combat a little more clumsy than before. Other than that, this is a brilliant sequel.

Fancy walking around some nightmarish 1970s sci-fi artwork thumping creatures in the face (sometimes kicking them when they are down)? I'm not sure I did, but I had a lot of fun.

Zeno Clash is niche. It is also obtuse and unfriendly to newcomers. There are no tutorials (apart from a couple of screen prompts in your first fight); there's no journal, no quest log, no helpful NPCs offering guidance on what to do or where to go. There are entire sub-plots you could miss by not going into the right house in the opening city (which gives no indication it is a hub area). This really is a game in which you are dumped in a world, given the lightest of prods in the direction of a story - and then get left on your own. Persevere and you might end up loving it.

I loved it. The game is pretty short (6 hours or so), the controls are clunky (there's one fight which requires a special ability that will have you gnashing your teeth), but the combat is satisfying, the game is beautiful and it is unlike anything I've ever played (though I might now have to check out Zeno Clash 1).

If you are fed up of being spoon fed AAA baby food, this comes highly recommended.

It has been a while since I have played the First Zeno Clash and I didn’t remember much from it when I started playing the sequel. From the first few minutes in I knew it will not be disappointing.

The story was amazing and the world was simply breathtaking, I have found myself playing for hours, completely detached from the reality. The best way to describe the experience would be to say: I was dreaming, a dream so unique and intriguing that I was starting to doubt my own sanity.

The gameplay is challenging and controls are complex. To elaborate further: I have never had a chance to execute any of the advanced combinations in any fight, simply because almost always survival came first. Trying to recall and execute a six step combo is simply impossible when you are being attacked by multiple opponents.

There aren’t many games like this one out there. Give it a try!

A truly fantastic game, the first person brawling is well implemented and unique. The environments and character design are truly breathtaking. The story is deep and heartfelt. This game represents the potential of games as an art form and it is made even more incredible by the fact that it was created by such a tiny team. I cannot praise this game highly enough it is a work of art that is the pinnacle of it's form.

one of the best Melee games i have ever played to date...

inventory system - 6.5/10 - very limited, i guess adds to the survival factor of the game. - if that even made sense >.<
combat - 8/10 - very easy when you get use to it.
graphics - 7.5/10 - some part of the maps are very detailed, astonishing graphics, very artistic.
story/plot - 5.9/10 - very confusing, funny at times.

overall = game is worth buying at discounted price!

The good, the bad, and the ugly:

The good: The fist fighting is actually pretty meaty and enjoyable.
The bad: Pretty much everything else.
The ugly: That rat girl dressed in bondage.

Overall impression: Pretty fun if you're playing with a friend, but fun because it's stupid not fun because it's a good game.

A criticism: This game would actually be a lot more fun if the fights were a little bit easier, but with double the amount of fightable enemies per zone.

Hindsight: I might have actually been able to get through at all if I didn't fight my co-op partner until we were both close to death every five minutes, then getting stomped on in the actual fights.

Zeno Clash 2 mixes strange visuals, fist-a-cuffs, and puzzles.
The visuals are quite breath taking, I can't tell you how many times I just stopped to admire the world around me, while they may not be top quality, they are certainly something new.
As for combat, it has improvd from the first game, the switch from Source engine to Unreal engine is really noticable here. Combat focuses more on punching and less on guns (whihc now have limited ammo).
The puzzles aren't the best, some of them take a while to figure out due to little instruction, but they get repetative.

ACE Team really showed their stuff here, if you're looking for an asthetically pleasing game, this is the one for you!

Ok this is going to be a short review because If you have played the first one (what you should do) then you know what to get from this however there is couple of things that are new, firstly that it's open world what's a good thing as it allows the player to see and explore world that ACE Team has builded. Another thing that I liked is that it's coop what allows your friends to join in and explore plus kick some ♥♥♥ with you, boss battles are better then the first game and the soundtrack like the last game is amazing. Now for some reason there was alot of bad and mediocre reviews for this game but to be honest game doesn't deserve low scores, to me this game surpass the last one as the soundtrack is alot more memorable, the locations as well and the story was alot more better as well. If you were a fan of the first one or you are interested then buy this game and don't listen to the mediocre reviews (bad reviews as well) because most reviewers haven't played the first one plus don't like beat them ups.

This game gets a 9/10 from me.

A worthy sequel to the first game. Combat has been revamped, but is still familiar enough to make sense to players of the previous game. The aesthetic of the game remains strange, beautiful and unique, although I don't know that I favor the open-world feel of this game to the linear feel of the first (which seemed to work better for the subject matter). The ending, although satisfying, has left me hoping that the series becomes a trilogy.

Combat system significantly improved over the last game. Very fun and interesting world and enviornments and overall atmosphere. Definitely worth its price. Game also goes on for hella long compared to the last one.

Imagine a bird man being punched in the face forever.

Zeno Clash2
8/10

The Good:

+ Although the gameplay is almost identical to the first, the level design has changed. Rather than being a linear adventure in the first game Zeno Clash 2 has large areas to explore interconnected with each other. This gives the world a more cohesive feel.

+ Each area to explore is unique and different from the last making it exciting when you reach new areas.

+ Both Zeno Clash games can not be faulted for being unoriginal. These games are some of the craziest, most unique and original ideas in a game. Everything from the world to the characters to the enemies makes for a very fresh experience.

+ Unique enemy designs

+ Artistically the game is nice with some really nice scenery, technically however I felt that it was average

+ Combat is fun, one of the few games that has done first person melee fighting successfully. In addition to straight combat, you can find weapons/guns or use your secondary items to defeat your enemies.

+ Some slight RPG mechanics. Scattered throughout the world are skill totems, fidning them gives you experience points where you can spend them on 4 attributes: Health, Strength, Stamina and Leadership.

Average:

-The game is somewhat easy, I had little trouble on normal and I don't think hard would have posed too much trouble either. One of the secondary items makes combat pretty trivial most of the time.

-If you never played the first game then you will not understand what the hell is going on. If you played the first then you will still be confused only slightly less. The story is decent but isn't presented as well as it should be and that is a shame because the story touches upon some interesting themes that should be expored further.

-The attribute leadership is somewhat of a useless stat. Leadership allows you to recruit allies to fight with you in many battles, a new addition to the game. The problem is, combat being easy and your AI companions being stupid doesn't make it a worthwhile stat, making it very meaningless.

+ refreshing lore,
+ quite well written characters,
+ nice weapons,
+ funny enemies,
+ enjoyable fights,
+ some quests.
---------------------------------------------
- boring protagonist,
- unintuitive,
- some problems with hitboxes,
- might be boring when playing alone so I would recommend to play with someone,
- you can feel that the game is a budget one.

Overall the game is worth to get especially when it costs so little during the sale.

I was a huge fan of Zeno Clash 1. Of Zeno Clash 2? It's a mixed bag.

On the one hand, I like the updated combat, and the arena mode they added is HUGE fun. I sat down in that and 2 hours just... disappeared. Super super fun.

On the other hand, the story portion of the game? The new open world stuff? I feel like it really hurts the game. It's messy, the checkpoints are spaced way too far apart, the difficulty is spiky and weird, and it just... isn't very fun, in general. It'd probably be more fun if you were into the world, but I can't say I find it very interesting / I was mashing through the awkward cutscenes by a few minutes into the game.

So yes I recommend the game, strongly, but personally, I only really enjoy the arena mode(s) - especially if you pick it up on a sale. Your mileage may vary.

Zeno Clash II is one of those games you probably ignored because it's not an AA title or underwhelming lack of fan base. But when I got my hands on this gem, I was overwhelmed with the weird but magnificent artwork and stunning world this game offers. The ambient sound and the smoothing music makes you feel like you are indeed in a dreamlike world out adventuring to find your missing brothers/sisters and kicking some monsters' ♥♥♥ along the way.

The gameplay is a fresh approach in an fps game where you punch, kick and smash opponents with a caveman-like hammer or other weird things you can pick up. There is also some puzzle elements scattered all over the map and when fighting bosses which will make it a non-repetitive experience. There are many combos you can master, but honestly I find myself using the same moves over and over again.

This game is a must for people who loves to experience a surreal fantasy world while doing some adventuring.

Graphics: 8 - The stunning visuals and surreal world is the number one factor that made this game great.

Performance: 6 - Though it uses some great shadows and lighting, the game suffers from heavy frame drops on some areas.

Gameplay: 7 - Not so many variety in weapons or effective combos to use. Puzzle elements is a plus and boss experience is great but its too easy once you figure out the pattern.

Sound: The ambient sound and music is excellent while the voice acting is great.

Overall Impression: 7 - Definitely a good game, get it on sale!

Just like Zeno Clash 1. Confusing, weird and full of punching stuff. If I wasn't playing on wood, I would be able to make some nice combos but whatever. Punching stuff is fun. And weapons... or rather tools work really... indirectly.
Errr... as I said this game is weird but that makes it good. Recommended.
