Evil Genius 2: World Domination, the sequel to the classic strategy game from 2004, has been released. The sequel launched exclusively on PC and can currently be purchased on Steam with a 15% discoubt to celebrate the game's release. There is also a Deluxe version of the game available, which includes a season pass providing access to a set of DLC.
Many reviews of the game have already appeared on the web and most of them are positive. Evil Genius 2 has an average rating of 79% on OpenCritic. Steam users also enjoy the game, as currently 79% of player ratings on the website are positive.
We'll have to wait a bit longer for the first information about the sales results, but at the time of writing this news the game is sixth among Steam's bestsellers, so it's doing pretty well for now.
The success of Evil Genius 2: World Domination is a good thing, because the fans have been waiting for a sequel for a very long time. Devs of the first game, Elixir, closed in 2005. Four years later the rights to the IP were acquired by Rebellion, but for over a decade fans were given only spin-offs in the form of browser-based Evil Genius: WMD and mobile Evil Genius Online. These weren't bad game, but they had very simplified gameplay and were full of microtransactions. Veterans were left to play the original from 2004 (which was made easier by improvements made by the excellent Mega Patch modification), but most of them longed for an actual sequel. Now they finally got it, and everything seems to indicate that it does a good job continuing the tradition of the original.
