The long-awaited sequel to the smash hit action-platformer is here: Guacamelee! 2 brings luchador Juan Aguacate out of retirement for a stunning new Metroidvania-style adventure, where he must face his greatest challenge yet - one that threatens to tear apart the very fabric of the Mexiverse!

    Explore a huge, hand-crafted world inspired by Mexican culture and folklore, filled with sassy new villains and weirdos (and a few old friends!). Learn a deep repertoire of bone-crunching wrestling moves to fend off the skeletal hordes and overcome skillful platforming challenges... and who said anything about a Chicken Illuminati? Certainly not us!

    Check out these features:

    * An epic adventure spanning time and space, featuring drop-in 4-player local co-op for you and your best amigos!
    * A brand new upgrade system: discover "trainers" around the world, defeat their challenges, and develop your skill sets for movement, combat, and more!
    * A vibrant, colorful adventure that takes you from the Mangrove Swamp to Hell itself, featuring twice as many enemy types as the first game and a roster of eccentric new bosses!
    * An absolutely fuego electro-Mexican soundtrack, and more gorgeous visuals than ever thanks to a fancy new rendering engine!
    * Definitely no secret society of chickens that teaches you ancient chicken abilities previously lost to the ages!

    For Xbox One owners, Guacamelee 2! is a required pick-up. The Metroidvania genre has enjoyed a number of certified classics over the past few years, and this one of them. Above all else, this title maintains a clear sense of direction. While there are new abilities to account for, none of them are detrimental to the game's focus. Instead, they help shape its core identity, offering players a refined experience that they're unlikely to get anywhere else. The incredible soundtrack and gorgeous vistas provide the always-welcome icing on this cake.

    Guacamelee! 2 makes us fall in love with metroidvania again. It's perfect gameplay, platforms and design won't let us stop playing. Although it's doesn't bring anything new to the genre, it's so fun, well executed and loveable everyone should give it a chance.

    Xbox luchadores might have had to wait a little longer, but it was worth it. This was and is one of the prime action platformers in recent years.

    Spectacular if spotty, this wrestler fulfills more than it frustrates. [Issue#225, p.88]

    Guacamelee! 2 adds some new elements to the first game's formula without innovating it, confirming all the strengths but also the flaws of its predecessor. We would have liked a fresher and more ambitious sequel, but every lover of the first game will definitely find it a pleasing - but not surprising - experience.

    El Juego es Increible, Los movimientos son fluidos, ademas esta segunda parte esta muy bien.
    Si le viera lo malo es las caidas en la historia
