There’s a lot to say in regards to the story however saying an excessive amount of will give away key plot factors. I’ll say that I fairly loved the narrative although. It helps to be an enormous fan of Korean horror, as I’m and experiencing quite a lot of it in different media. Features of the story didn’t appear tacky or far fetched to me however some might really feel totally different with out publicity to that type of horror.

Poison will slowly drain your well being and the ghost monsters will trigger bleeding, additionally inflicting harm over time.

The Coma 2’s best energy is available in its artwork design. It really does look wonderful. The world is extremely detailed for a 2D Aspect-scroller and the monster designs particularly the Visions Sister is a standout.
Sound design can also be good when it’s in-game. Listening to your stalker strolling round simply outdoors the room you’re in will rapidly drive you to cease and conceal hoping they don’t come into the room you’re in. Sadly, I did really feel like the sport’s cutscenes had some form of sound bug. Every scene was absolutely audible however then the audio cuts out all of the voice work and music. I’m undecided if it’s designed that method however the best way it occurs I can’t consider it; it’s something however a bug.
Stable Design With Some Missing Rigidity
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a good recreation that options some unimaginable artwork design and a reasonably good story constructing on the muse of nice Korean horror tales. It’s only a disgrace that the components that ought to add to the strain and horror are lowered to QTE’s making it a easy gameplay mechanic.
