Worse than the predecessor

Dawn of Magic 2 is practically equal to its predecessors: it's an hack'n slash, a clone of Diablo, but really worse than this game. The commands are not intuitive and this is not a good thing for a game where you must use many commands and be very fast. The graphic is outdated and the game looks really old. Even if you are a fan of hack'n slash this game is not a good choice

If you have played Dawn of Magic 1. There is very little to distinguish between the two. Games graphics engine is same as before, and story hasn't been dramatically improved. Most of the improvements are gameplay focused. If you like the specialization options from the first part you will love to see inclusion of more options. There is more loot available this time around. Many new types of enemies and environments have been introduced. There were some balancing and difficulty issues in the first part. Most of these issues have been fixed and Dawn of Magic 2 is a much superior and solid experience this time around.

It feels like this was made to simply to make side money for the companies. First off, you won't find a lot of "upgrades" in DOM2. Visually speaking, it looks almost the same with a few quirks. Some "new" options are pretty pointless like increasing number of resolutions and what not. They still haven't fixed the chat bubble spam too. So in return, combat will still be clogged by that. You'll find everything that was in the first game and barely much more. Still..you get to advance on the plot. But if by now the lack of technological advancement in the engine has turned you off, I wouldn't recommend this game.

Same game

Dawn of Magic 2 is an atypical hack’n’slash, focusing much more attention to the magic component and the various possibilities given by the inventory and character growth. In fact, the game allows actions such as trade, crafting, alchemy, and many more.

The graphics are not anything exceptional, but the graphics engine is very lightweight. Grossly inadequate in the combat system that is inaccurate and chaotic. There isn’t significant improvement or novelty compared to the first chapter, so if you did not like DoM, you will not like this either.
