Righteous Kill 2: Revenge of the Poet Killer - New Whirl of the Story!
The hidden object game Righteous Kill 2: Revenge of the Poet Killer from Merscom/Starz Entertainment and Media Art continues
the story of Erica, an NYPD Detective who belongs to the specialized
Vigilante Unit. This time, she's on the trail of the Poet Killer, a
madman who enjoys leaving tantalizing notes behind at the scenes of his
Like the first Righteous Kill game, Righteous Kill 2
has very little to do with the film of the same name starring Robert De
Niro and Al Pacino.
You'll search for clues by visiting various locations, such as a
warehouse, office, and Chinatown, and finding the list of objects in
each. Most scenes have hotspots that you can click on to zoom in on
part of the scene, and occasionally you'll find key items that can be
added to your inventory and used in a scene (such as using a cotton
swab to take a blood sample).
There's no timer, and hints are unlimited
with a short recharge time in between uses. In between hidden object searches you'll have to do things like dust
for fingerprints, re-assemble torn documents, and compare bullets in
the ballistics lab.
There's also a unique four-way spot-the-difference
challenge where you have to compare footage from four different
security cameras. This was one of my favorite of the game's activities.
With 11 chapters each divided into several scenes to investigate, Righteous Kill 2 is a much longer game than its predecessor, which was criticized for being on the short side.
Righteous Kill 2
definitely isn't short (expect at least four or five hours of
gameplay), but a couple of hours in and the game starts to feel padded
In the latter half of the game you'll find yourself retreading the same
scenes over and over again, searching for a seemingly endless array of
guns, folders, pens and drugs. I found myself losing faith in Erica and
her team as they wandered around the city picking up stereos, scissors
and flags while the body count kept growing
Righteous Kill 2: Revenge of the Poet Killer is better than the first game, but still feels mediocre compared to what else is on the market.
