Recently, we invited a select group of individuals to a series of exclusive, hands-off preview sessions for Evil Genius 2: World Domination. The evil thing to do would be to ask you to do the necessary legwork…but we figured a good misinformation campaign needs some propaganda. So, we’ve compiled a selection of our personal favourites here for your enjoyment. We'll be back in a couple of weeks with another Dev Blog, but for now... happy reading, muahahaha.
“This sequel is more lavishly made, with a more '60s retro flair than the first, but it retains and updates the best parts.”
"With so many ways to try and destroy and/or take over the world, Evil Genius 2: World Domination looks like a much more enjoyable road to doomsday than we're accustomed to."
“Evil Genius 2 might be arriving 16 years late, but it looks like the sequel I always wanted”
"Looks gorgeous and thoroughly modern"
"This almost feels like the sequel that would've come a year or two after Evil Genius, albeit with a modern sheen. That's one way to have done this sequel, and given the cult classic nature of the original, it's probably the right one."
"Rebellion clearly respect this IP and their additions via the sequel look to have found a way to bring this once mid-2000’s stand-alone strategy title into the present day."
"There are three unique islands to choose from for your evil lair location, each coming with their own pluses and minuses. Tons of new henchmen, agents, rooms, devices, traps, and loot. And so much more."
"Ultimately, Evil Genius 2: World Domination has potential, but more needs to be seen... the capacity for a complex sim game is there as every part, in concept, complements the other."
"With a team dedicated to enhancing and updating the Evil Genius experience, things look promising for the simulation sequel."
"Evil Genius 2 is looking to bring back the cult-classic management sim with a bunch of new bells and whistles... My preview didn’t cover all aspects of the game, but I was impressed with what I saw from Rebellion Developments."
