At the core of Blackguards 2 is the conflict between Cassia – who starts a military campaign against the tyrant Marwan.

Blackguards 2 focuses, on turn based battles as its core gameplay, based on the popular Dark Eye Pen & Paper tabletop rule set.
Battles, no matter if fought by one or more squads, range across multiple screens, lead through dungeons, ruins, or bridges spiked with traps and are, of course, inhabited by dangerous creatures.
Whatever the player decides, it will have an impact on the events to come, what side quests are available and how characters will react in camp and in conquered areas.

Blackguards 2 is the second part of the excellent RPG turns out to be an even greater game. The action and plot is as engaging and extraordinary as in the precursor. Slightly simplified mechanics turns out to be a hit. If you liked the previous part, Blackguards 2 is mandatory. I recommend and wish you as much fun as I had playing it.
Blackguards 2 delivers more brutal hex-based strategy and environmental puzzling while refining the original formula in several smart ways. The more open yet focused campaign, propped up by a fantastic central character who's as evil as you want her to be, makes for a satisfying if punishing experience. Though overlong battles and marathon sessions can become a slog, and you'll likely encounter some nasty bugs, there's still a great deal here to enjoy for strategy fans.
It's not a bad rpg but it's not the very best rpg either. I had a good time with it and completed the game without much difficulty. The plot is a little lacking but the gameplay was entertaining enough for me to keep playing till the end. The game only took me about 15 hours to complete and I would say it's worth a look for any rpg gamers.
The only reason I had trepidation in playing Blackguards 2 was the horrible bugs that made the first Blackguards unplayable. To my delight I had not one issue with Blackguards 2 and boy did I get a treat! The story-writing was amazing, with an iconic memorable fairytale that changes depending on choices you make in the game. Cassia's story is dark, and as a heroine or villain, she edges towards the brink of insanity. The SRPG elements are fulfilling, but not all maps are created equal. Sometimes obscure clues you pick up offer advantages during battle, but only if you can remember what was said. Overall, the game deserves a sequel and definitely a playthrough if you haven't already.
This was made to simplify the turn based style, classes, and attributes earned throughout. While there is plenty of new features, especially when compared to the previous game, sometimes it does suffer from being confusing like the game before. Overall, the game is better than the last and i would recommend it to any fan of the series or style. if there is one thing this game will do, is keep the gamer really busy.
