Risk of Rain 2 Review
Posted: 2 weeks ago, last updated 11 days ago.
This is the second game in the Risk of Rain series, and has expanded beyond the original; now you can play in a 3D open world rather than on a 2D platform, which it manages to execute whilst still keeping it's sci-fi and fantasy charm. Risk of Rain 2 boasts a large variety of loots that you can earn on runs by killing aliens and collecting the currency once they drop dead.
