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.

$19.99 for essentially a flash game. Is it worth it? No, even on sale it is way overpriced for what it is. Spent about 30 minutes and saw nothing worth paying for. 30 minutes was about as much as I could handle. There are free flash games which are better. Your money is better spent elsewhere, especially for what they are asking.

I played the free version a fair bit, and found it kind of fun. So I thought "Hey, the full version should have loads more content, right?"

Boy, was I wrong. Don't buy this game.

The "Fullscreen" option is letterboxed 4:3, and is just it's original tiny resolution stretched out. It looks so bad it's unplayable, you have to play it in the orignal resolution. All the additional content is right at the end of the game by which point it's just repetitious, and most importantly: It just feels like a flash game. The lack of improvement over the free online version means that paying any price for this game is a rip-off.

Until we get some serious updates to this game, it is worthless.

It's kind of better than number 1 (which you can play on an online site.) but I wasn't attracted to it.

It`s a very pleasant game, especially for SRPG 1 veterans. A bit widened, a bit polished really makes for sequel. Unfortunately it`s not worth it`s steam shop price. Look for Bundles and special offers (at least -50%) - then it will a good choice.

Stick RPG 2: Director's Cut, what a great game. If you ever played the original Stick RPG, this is probably the best game for you.

The Pros:
  • An excellent gameplay, full of fun, fights, cash, jobs, mobs, fights and, of course, love
  • Up to 4 save files allowed (with a little bad thing, see cons)
  • Cheats, including in-game shop prices, faster running, skipping time ...
  • Unicorn races
  • A storyline (but you do not need to follow it)
  • In-game minigames
  • Secrets and parodies
  • LOADS of cool weapons, available in fights
  • Many many other things

The Cons (none of these actually hurt the gameplay, but could be improved):
  • Saving and cheating require a Xgen account
  • Achievements are only in-game, not on Steam
  • No trading cards :(
  • "Ultra" graphics quality is more like medium
  • No Linux support

So, do yourself a favour and buy this game. If 20$ is too much for you, don't worry, I'm sure there will be sales & bundles.

Not really fun. I love stick figures. This is just something that is probably easier to do in a browser. I tried it. Got bored immediatly. was just walking around becuaseofthis pointless game. It has even less of a purpose than a sandbox game. BECAUSE YOU CAN'T MAKE YOUR OWN PURPOSE. Of all the things in the world, do not buy this game!

This is an excellent game. I got it the same day i wrote this review. I wasted an entire day in the life of a stickman in the city. I plan to waste many more as well. Don't my hours throw you off. I've played this for countless hours at a time on the XGen website. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND this game. You'll never get bored. However, the cheats and the vague instructions tend to become a bother, and you might have to look up a walkthrough made by a kid younger than you, who has already beat the living ♥♥♥♥ out of the game.

(No TDLR for you lazy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.)

For the next 19 hours this game is on sale. This is the only time in your life you will probably ever see this game at an acceptable price for what it is. At 5.99, this game is definitely worth the purchase for the extra features from the original XGenStudios demo. In my honest opinion, it is completely not worth $20 at all.

Stick RPG 2, great nostaliga from back when I played this game in the 5-6th grade. This is an amazing game, but the price is a bit too much. The game has somewhat of a story, I didn't know till I unlocked the lab. It took me around 224 days or 5 hours to beat the game, but I really wasn't trying to speedrun it. The game has a lot of jobs to choose from, being good and bad. Like any RPG, there are stats, Intelligence, Strength, and Charm, all important for certain jobs and quests. Theres also another stat called Karma, determines if you are good or bad. I prefer bad, it's just better. Three things I didn't like about this game was the fact that the game is locked at 30FPS, second, the game is 20 bucks, retail price (I got it for 5 bucks on the summer sale.) and the controls would sometimes ♥♥♥♥ up and force me to close out the game and relaunch it. The game isn't worth 20 bucks, plus it is a browser game. This edition just adds some stuff that wasn't in the browser version. I'd say pick this game up at a discounted price, this game does have a lot of replayablilty so, it's really all up to you. 8.5/10

Way overpriced... For a far too underrated game.

Now introducing my get rich quick scheme
  1. Start new game
  2. Go to bank
  3. Deposit all money
  4. Turn on TimeTravel cheat
  5. Press and hold 'T'
  6. ????
  7. PROFIT!!!

    Whiile the first stick rpg was enjoyable, this one runs dry fast (it's definitely not worth $20). The game is full of bugs in the fighting sequences. I cannot complete the game because the bugs will not allow me to enter the lab. the game was somewhat enjoyable until that part.

    I used to play the first Stick RPG when i was a kid and i was really excited to play this. The first one was really fun and the second had more content which made it better,although it wasnt enough. I bought it and within 3-4 hours playing it i was making 14k a day in the game. Once you manage to buy all the homes and stores there isnt really much to do. There are some deeds you do for other people but thats generally boring and unrewarding. It's a game where you go from 'A to B and then back to A' and trust me its really repetitive. Unless you like playing life simulators like 'sims', you won't be satisfied with your purchase. Though an improvement from the first, its not worth $20 of your cash.

    While this game is relatively short, there appears to have been a lot of work put into it. Some of the more advanced weapons are overpowered and make the battles too easy near the end of the game.

    If you are a fan of grinding and leveling up, you will enjoy this game. Most quests are unlocked based on your level, so you're going to need to get yourself a job and improve your skills in order to make money to pay for your upgrades.

    I was a bit disappointed with the ending, but others might find it appropriate. Personally, I was looking for something more.

    There is replayability to this game, and you choose the way you complete the game. If you want to be an honest, friendly visitor who helps the law, or a rebel who gets a job as a pimp or hacker and works for the underworld, it's up to you.

    I might start this game up again and give it another go, and see if there is anything differen that I might have missed.

    Also, there are trophies to win based on acheivements, which add some more challenge to the game. Such as completing side quests, or earning a certain amount of money gambling.

    All in all it's a decent game, and I recommend it.

    Enjoy!
