English:
Not as good as the first one
Looks like the developers tried to expand the solid concept of half minute hero and ended with mixed results, the new additions are fine but they don’t add much overall, don’t worry though; the game is still quirky and fun, however do yourself a favor and play the first one. If you still are craving for more go ahead and play the second coming (shouldn’t be a problem since you get both by buying the bundle for the price of one!).

Español:
No tan bueno como el primero
Los desarrolladores fueron más ambiciosos con esta segunda parte y expandieron el gameplay con nuevos elementos que a mi parecer no funcionan del todo. Sigue siendo bastante entretenido y la premisa la misma (¡salvar al mundo en 30 segundos!) pero me encontré en más de una ocasión deseando que se terminara pronto.

Recomendaría jugar el primero y darle una oportunidad a este si quedas con ganas de más.

**Recommend that you played Half minute hero before**
If you like the Half minute hero and want more depth, this is the game for you.

This second title focus on story A LOT MORE than the first.

this game, unlike the first title, need some grinding (which is not a lot though), or the waekest monster on the map will send you flying.

You can expect to find many more things than the first part.

Throwing reasons and story become EPIC.

The second game in a series about saving the world in only half a minute has once again won my love in only half an hour. All the gameplay you know and love from the first game is back and upgraded just a tad for more dynamic fights without losing its original feel. If you've played the first game you'll have a good time seeing some subtle callbacks, but if you're jumping into the series with this game you'll still have a grand time; skipping the first game in no way makes the game any less fun.

Outside of fighting, there's so much to be done. Weapon crafting, skill leveling, bonus content you purchase using gold saved up from missions, and so forth. It's so easy to climb your way up to 100% completion and yet so difficult to successfully achieve that goal with such a large number of tasks to complete. You won't be left feeling like you didn't have enough to do.

Plus there's a leaderboard for benchmark testing the game on your computer so you can compare your results to other players for whatever reason. How can you not love this game?

My first impression after having done the first part of the story:

Don't let the appearance of this game fool you; it's a badass game and offers some quick fun if you are lacking of time or if you are a hardcore player, finish the game in a long session. Do not feel disheartened if you completed the first mission set ---- Your journey is just the beginning! If you are a completionist, check out the gallery and unlock artworks, videos and soundtracks by finishing the game! The only complain I have is only the music transition while fighting against the enemies while not on any mission, since it gets rather repetitive. Steam Workshop support allows map creation for increased gameplay value.

For the options, each gamepad and keyboard bindings can be customized to your liking and for the first time, occulus VR mode on a 2d game(?).

Experience great soundtrack (especially the main menu!), improved battle (now you have skills, class, party and formation) and having the money-minded goddess along with your journey, HMH fans and newcomers will love it!
