HAND OF FATE 2 NINTENDO SWITCH REVIEW via SwitchWatch

Hand of Fate 2 is one of the most diverse, unique games I've played in quite some time. It's rare to find a developer doing something new these days, but Defiant Development successfully mixes the 3D action genre with a card and board game. If you're looking for a weird, dark fantasy card game with intense action in between, don't sleep on Hand of Fate 2!

Hand of Fate 2 (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

The original Hand of Fate was a game I had heard a lot about, but never got around to. The Switch is encouraging me to go back and pick up a lot of these titles, and this is one worth grabbing a hold of. Just be sure to watch the cards and choose your battles wisely, and you'll have a tale that will live on through the ages.

Hand of Fate 2 – Switch via GameSpace

Hand of Fate 2 was an excellent spin on the ARPG when it came out in late 2017. It's even better now that it's on the Switch. The same issues are still present, namely that combat can be too simplistic, and there are just so many games on the console that Hand of Fate 2 could easily be overlooked. I hope that instead, Defiant's sequel sees a lot of new players, as it's a series I hope to see continue to evolve.

Review: Hand of Fate 2 (Nintendo Switch) via Pure Nintendo

Hand of Fate 2 merges tried and true conventions and creates a unique experience. While the individual components lean on the simpler side of things, as a whole the game is greater than the sum of its parts. It's a game that's best played in small chunks, making it a very good entry to the Switch library!

I played the first one, & it was a dungeon crawler/beatemup, with cards determining your equipment & forming the map you're exploring. Like in the trailer, "A Village Burns" is an event you'll play in that campaign. Honestly quite enjoyed the first one, outside of some loose, sometimes buggy combat & opponent AI, it kept me hooked with the semi-randomness of what you'll get next.

I believe you unlock more cards that can be accessed in a playthrough as you progress further through the game.

Either way, very interested in this title.

What even is this?! Card game? Board Game? Dungeon Crawler? I'm certainly intrigued and it's for sure going on my wishlist. It's about time the Switch started getting more card games.
