Description: Be the elite super spy we’ve been waiting for! The popular escape-the-room virtual reality franchise is back with new missions, more villains, and ingenious puzzles.
Review: I have to admit I was not looking forward to playing ‘I Expect You To Die 2’ only because the first one was so iconic at the time I couldn’t see how this follow-on was ever going to live up to that amount of hype. The good news is it almost does. It certainly looks better and the puzzles are way better in every way. Once again it is a static escape room game that will certainly get most people scratching their heads at some point. But it is the storyline that gets the biggest improvement. It now feels exciting, more like you are part of some spy network rather than the heavier focus on the puzzles like the past game. Sure, it is still a little overpriced and I finished the game in just over 2 hours, but for those two hours, I was fully engrossed and deeply immersed. Yes, you would be better off waiting for a sale, but VR experiences this good are worth paying a little extra for and I highly recommend it at any price.
