Just finished Guacamelee 2.
Great game but plays it very safe. Barely any differences to the first game. There's much more content but it doesn't feel as exciting. Locations were far more varied and interesting in the first game. Guacamelee 2 is also noticably easier compared to its prequel. Never died once due to having my health reduced to zero (I died of course a couple of times hitting insta kill sections). Not even during any of the boss fights. Aced them on first try. In the first game I probably died around 3 times to each boss, even when I replayed it on X1 I died here and there. And I remember the end boss battle being really hard. It's incredibly easy here.
I wasn't even using the health and stamina regeneration upgrade in that battle. Got hit only about 4 times.
btw. I also started Hollow Knight since I heard so much good stuff about it. So far I'm really disappointed. Level design is pretty poor. Even when you buy a map and the upgrade to make yourself visible on the map (which is quite bullshit) it's so easy to get lost as everything looks the same with no clear indication of where to go.
Combat isn't great either but to be fair I'm still rather early.
Very disappointed by the visuals as well. Looks like a flash game IMO. Expected much more by looking at the title screen and some other art I've seen.
It's also supposed to be a Metroidvania game.. really? Didn't notice any of that. Everything from the first section was accessible from the start. Only getting to the next section required a magic spell. But that's about as Metroidvania-like as collecting a key and opening a locked door.
Not sure if I'll continue it. Probably not.
