Evil Genius 2 review

The lair is on fire. A generator just exploded. A superspy has infiltrated the vault. This is Evil Genius 2 at its most hectic, a game of base-building and minion management, with a bit of tower defense thrown in. In true supervillain style, this game has two dramatically different faces. One reveals a handsomely animated base-building game of trap-setting and floor-planning, with a fun theme, appropriately silly voice-acting and plenty of panicked fire-fighting. The other shows a gurning numbers game, a stubborn goblin of timers and clicky icons, withholding resources and chuckling. I like one of these faces a lot…

Evil Genius 2 reviews round-up, all the scores

By Dom Peppiatt, Monday, 29 March 2021 16:14 GMT The satirical spy-fi lair builder series, Evil Genius, is back for another crack at world domination with Evil Genius 2 – and so far, it looks like good news for developer and publisher Rebellion.Evil Genius 2 was announced way back in 2017, and amongst certain loyal parts of the gaming audience, there’s been a huge amount of interest in this comedic strategy title.The long and short of the game is this: players take control of an Evil Genius and set their plans for world domination in motion by building (fairly) inconspicuous bases,…

Over the next few days, both Spacebase Startopia and Evil Genius 2: World Domination arrive.

Evil Genius 2 might be arriving 16 years late, but it looks like the sequel I always wanted

As the saying goes – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. 2004 was a long time ago – a whopping fifteen years, plus 2020, the year that has felt like a decade. That’s basically twenty-five years (or sixteen, if you’re a stickler for real linear time). In the fast-evolving world of video games such a period has the potential to feel longer still – a game of that age can feel so cripplingly old as to be unplayable. But not Evil Genius.Evil Genius, the dungeon-building management sim that basically casts you as a Roger Moore era Bond villain, holds…
