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.

Special Edition

The Special Edition for Zeno Clash 2 includes:

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

About the Game

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!

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw Zeno Clash 2 on Steam was;
"I definitely have to get this game."

Now, I have played the first Zeno Clash, and the second. I have completed both and there's quite a bit of things to say about both of them.

The vivid, quirky design of landscape, buildings, characters and items/weapons is present in both games, and it's truly something refreshing that you don't actually see in every game out there.
The storyline, too -- is connected. The two are connected, so I suggest you play Zeno Clash before picking up on Zeno Clash 2, as you most likely won't understand the story behind Ghat's 'family' and what happened to it in the events of the original.

Now, onto the mechanics themselves. The game is a first-person brawler, and it's a bit easier than the original. (At least as I remember it, I've played it ages ago. Literally!) The mechanics of the brawling is actually great. Rarely ever will you run into a bug, and the new tools of the trade (Grenades, Chain, as I like to call it the Sun/Moon-strike gauntlet and the Golem Link are all amazing tools that are (later on) at your disposal. The game is very responsive and plays out well, the punches connect when they need to connect, and the special moves that you learn how to use in the tutorial or later on come to play when you fight a bit more advanced enemies.

Onto the world;
The world of Zenozoik is truly amazing. It's a 'civilization' between barbarism and chiefdom as described by one of the game characters you will (later on) absolutely love and root for. The locations! They're absolutely amazing, quirky and detailed just how they were in the first Zeno Clash. Now, for a fan -- this is not a bad thing! This is absolutely amazing as it has freshened up my memory on the world itself, especially the 'city' of Halstedom.

Now, if you're familiar with the game you'll notice a lot of old characters appearing, such as Rimat, Father-Mother, Pott and others. And they're spanking new amazing in the second edition. Also, guess who you'll encounter as well? Chneero! That's right! You'll meet Chneero, the one-legged Corwid! And you will love it.

The game sparkles with detail, and it's absolutely stunning. It has taken my breath a few times when I was watching the horizon over Zenozoik. Why? Well, you'll notice the level design -- which is actually original, and the character/monster designs that you haven't seen anywhere else, really.

Zeno Clash 2 blooms with originality and is truly an under-rated and under-appreciated title on Steam.
Worth the money? Definitely worth even more.
10/10

Play the first game instead. this one is just badly paced and tedious. the continuation of the story was good though, so if you're dying to know how the story continues, go ahead.

Zeno Clash II probably has a target audience, sadly I'm not a part of that group.

The game is a first person brawler focusing on fist fight: simple combos and blocking.
The concept itself is interesting, however the execution is where the game fails.
While it's fun to punch everything you find for the first 10-15minutes, the game gets boring extremely fast.
The game might get more interesting at some point, but if it forces players to endure tedious gameplay for hours to actually get more skills or have some fun, then its a sign of bad game design.

If you're a huge fan of the genre, then you might enjoy this. But if you're a casual player, who's looking for some fun for a couple of hours, then avoid this game like cancer, you won't find it in Zeno Clash II.

PROS:
- Promising concept, some people will probably have fun with this game.
- 4 Steam trading cards.

CONS:
- Boring, dull looking locations, everything feels lifeless and empty.
- Buggy hitbox, which is for a FPS fighting game is rather a big issue.
- Gameplay gets repetitive and boring fast.

I was fascinated by the dreamy and surreal atmosphere of the game. You don't realize how utterly conventional most game worlds are until you've played Zeno Clash 1 and 2. The gameplay is solid, the fights are a lot of fun, but the star of the show is clearly the alien world with its inhabitants. I recommend this game to anyone who's grown tired of the same old 3D shooters over the years.
