10/10 would lose my account again, make a new one, and re-unlock every single item/job/achievement/house again.

On a more serious note, I enjoyed playing the free version so obviously I'd enjoy playing the Directors Cut. I'd get it on sale if I were you. If only I could retreive my old account.

What can I say? Well for starters let's look at the bad. I like ending things positive. This game was made by X-Gen, a company I know little about. The game can not be full screened unless it's a mac, in that case it just centers the game, and makes the surroundings black, there is not way to get a bigger window. It can be a bit laggy I guess to.

Now the good. Holy ♥♥♥♥ this has some nice content. I can be evil or good. They have references to everything it seems and sometimes make jokes out of them. Such as in the police station there is a Nigerian Prince. Yeah. I heard that before. But wait! He DOES give you money eventually. Of course a scammer would give you money if he had any honor (most don't) because you released him. Well I have played though many times to. The time it takes is how long you are willing to put in. Want to end as a billonaire? How about someone who almost reaches the google price range. (Google is a number with 99 zeros). It depends how you play. There is fighting and it's actually fun. A little more so to me when I less gear to use because of the challenge. In all, amazing.

Great little flash game that's a fun way to burn time. There is plenty of content to keep you occupied with little jokes and some little fun gameplay and if try to go for all the in game achivements you'll invest a good amount of time in this so you get your moneys worth. However the $20.00 price tag is ridiculous I highly recommend getting this on sale I myself purchased it at $3.99 and that was fair. One little issue you'll encounter in the game is when you have an occupation that requires a stat increase for promotion but wont say how much, you may have enough but they wont give you a promotion still so you'll have to exit the game and go back in and you'll recieve it if it's enough

Played the free flash version of this game when I was a lot younger, and I managed to get the game on sale. I think it's well made for what it is, as there's different paths you can take with your stats in general.

Though I will say, don't buy it for $19.99, the gameplay is not worth the price and when it goes on sale, you can get it cheap.

You can get this game for free.
All you need to do is
1. Buy & download the game
2. Create a copy of all game files in another file
3. Ask for a refund on steam

The game is still playable even after refund.

I like this game because it triggered all my fond memories of addicting flash games from the early 2000's on Newgrounds.

It's not worth full price, I don't know if it's even worth the few dollars I put into it, but out of respect and nostalgia to the original Stick RPG and the good old times with similar flash games, a couple bucks is fair.

The resolution is terrible and there's no way to modify it. Fullscreen mode looks ugly. You have to go into this game wanting it really bad, or having brain damage like me, otherwise you're probably going to throw up. I guess you can look on the bright side, at least it's a finalized product and not another Early Access game stuck in purgatory forever.

I think the creator and I would get along really well, his humor is as unfunny as mine. I like that.

This is a really cool and simple game. I bought this at the sales for 4 euro's and it is worth it.
It is a bit short compared with other games but it does not take much memory and you do not need a high tech computer for this
game. My computer did not cost that much but the game runs perfect on my computer.

I love the days that you get to fall from the sky, onto a random floating city, get a job, screw over some people on drug dealing, fight some, and get 4 dimensional objects! THIS game explains those days, so I will very much so love this game! (Moon walking included)

If you want an honest review, then here it is. Stick RPG 2 is a lot like its predecessor. In one way, it runs dry very fast. It runs dry even faster now that they've decided to include a cheat menu! No more running back to your home, just press the 1 button to teleport to it! Don't feel like waiting for your interest to increase? Hold in the T button! Of course, all of these have to be activated, which I did. But all in all, it was a fun experience. You won't get very much time out of the game, but the time you do get it pretty fun. Lots of secret things to explore and funny things to read. The price tag is something I do NOT agree with though. This game should not be 20 dollars. Or even 10! This game should be 5 dollars at MOST. Get this game if it's on sale for 75% off or more. Nothing lower.

I recommend this game under three conditions

1. You played Stick RPG 1 and wish it was more expansive
2. You want to have the extra content
3. Don't pay full price, get it in sale.

It's an enjoyable nostalgia trip for those of us who scoured the web for game sites not yet locked by the school's firewall back in the day.

Stick RPG 2 has two different sides to the game. One side is a time management sim featuring wild goose chase quests, and the other side is a top down arcade brawler. Both sides completely different from each other, and both are necessary to master to complete the game.

As a sim, your character has to make money through working jobs, gambling, and performing various tasks. Doing favors (quests) for individuals will help you aquire different tools, which will ultimately lead you to the game goal items. As for time management, you have to decide what jobs and tasks are worth your time to work to build up your bank and character stats. You can also develop a love life interacting with potential mates. You also sometimes have a choice on how to accomplish certian tasks, but there are very few choices offered throughout the entire game.

As a top down arcade brawler, it feels very similar to Hotline Miami, but everyone has a life bar, and you can't pick up weapons off the ground. You can build weapons through quests, shop at the weapons store, or sometimes even win them as fight rewards. Some battles will only allow you to fight with your fists, but there are also battle grounds where you can exploit all your weapons.

As far as the overall experience goes, it feels really unpolished and unfinished. Prices of various items and services are very inflated, forcing you to spend a lot of time working jobs to develop a solid bank account. It is also frusturating working a job and losing stats on a bad shift (on the job accidents, with no insurance options). You also can have lucky days where you get a substantial bonus on your shift, but you can't adjust the odds in your favor for these events. On a funny note, your strength stat will make your firearms stronger for some reason, and you have unlimited ammo, so running blindly with a machine gun or flame thrower on full auto is an acceptable tactic. As fun as it is the first two or three times, it gets old really fast.

The game feels more like a prototype for something really awesome, but definitely lacks a lot of ambition, and needs to be tweaked. I do recommend it to hobbyist level game designers who want ideas for implementation, but need some direction. For everyone else, pick it up as cheap as you can (I got it for $1), and waste a good 4 to 6 hours before you give up on it. It isn't so bad, it just isn't all that great either.

I remember playing the first Stick RPG and it was great!
This new game brought back some old memories of playing flash games when I was younger and was happy when I got a chance to play this game.
Pros:
-New fighting system
-A variety of things to do
-Karma System
-Gambling
-Multiple jobs to choose and master
Cons:
-Same old stat system
-Not much end game content

This is a fun game though it's not well worth the $20. Buy it when it's on sale

Stick RPG 2: Director's Cut is an expanded version of the flash game many of us have played. These types of flash games with collection quests, stat management, and simplistic combat are common on free game sites. It does seem as if the game has been fleshed out a bit, and more can be completed than in your standard flash game, but I don't believe enough has been added to justify the hefty price tag.

Gameplay is split into two major types. In the first, you run around the map, work for money, build your skills, and complete fetch quests. The second is combat, which is a top-down battle arena where you can switch weapons and attack by clicking. Niether is particularly deep or nuanced.

Graphics are the same that have been seen before in countless flash games. Nothing noteworthy. All characters are stick people.

The sounds consists of a constant background song, and some sound effects when you perform a task or fight. Very basic.

The writing is good enough to keep you interested for a bit, but there seem to be only a handful of quests to complete in the entire game. Gameplay is stretched out by the outrageous amounts of money or stats needed to obtain items. It would take hours and hours of mindless running back and forth and clicking to obtain some of the pricier items which are needed to continue quests.

Overall I cannot recommend Stick RPG 2. The game length is padded out by the ridiculous stat or money cost of some of the necessary quest items, which just hides the fact that there is not much to do in this game. Maybe it deserves a small price tag for the fact that it is a little longer than some of the free flash games, but it is nowhere near worth $20. Even if it was closer to the $5 range, I'd have a hard time recommending it because there is just not that much to do in it.

Grade: D+

Stick RPG 2:DC would lead you to believe that this is a full version of one of the most inspiring games of the 2000's. The problem is, that when it was free it was never finished, and 10 years later, it still feels like its a free game. Here are some of the frustrating problems I have encountered.
First off, the aspect ratio is crap in the game, unless you go fullscreen. That means it is either really small, or it locks you into one screen when most people have two monitors. Not a big deal, unless you want to watch Netflix while playing, then its agrivating as hell.
In a world where quest lists and pull up maps are a given, it breaks the flow of the game when you are given a quest. How might you ask? Well because you will immediantly forget about a quest given, and items are rarely found/given, whenever a task is presented to you, it means you will have to prettymuch stop whatever you are doing, and go for that task, unless you don't care. Its not like "Hey do you have a popsicle?" and then find one a little bit later. Not the case in this game, so either you are playing with a walkthrough, or break flow and go task running.
There really seems to be no direction, if you forget the last step you where on, guess what, you have to retrace to see if you can remember where you are. And this game has a ♥♥♥♥ing time system, which means quests and quest givers are dependent on the time of the day, so a walkthrough is probably a neccesity if you don't want to run around a city hunting down during each time period for stuff.
The reward system in this game is meh, doing the right thing screws you, and doing the wrong thing still screws you. I have had to save/quit/load because even if you are working a normal job, you can lose days worth of progress in stat loss. It is frustration from a system that when it first came out was fun, but now is outdated. And here is how work in this game works: run up to the place that you have enough stats to work at. Click person a few times a day. Run to place to sleep. Repeat. FOR A PAID GAME I WANT SOME DAMN VARIETY! This is a point in click game 10 years in the making that literal thousands of dollars would have been pledged to through a kickstarter to make it right. They did nothing in the time between Stick RPG 1 & 2 it seems. Its not edgy, its not original, and its not updated.

If you have the nostaliga bug, ignore it. This is a poor remake of a game that inspired an entire generation of flash game makers. I wanted to love this game, I bought it the second I saw it was out on Steam. Stick RPG 2 can be best described as a middle finger to anyone guilible enough to purchase it. Outdated design, lack of innovation, annoying aspect ratio, no direction, and archiach structuring is why I couldn't recommend this game under any circumstances.

Edit* 2014/07/07: Save games apparently are a huge issue in this game as well. Ive lost mine, then they came back, then didn't, and they go through this process where you may or may not have to sign up with Xgen's website. Didn't mention it before, but thought it might as well be called out as well. They do seem to come back, but its when the game seems to want to.
