Yes, it’s back. Like it’s predecessor, Geneforge 2 starts you out as a member of the Shapers, a race of magic users with the ability to form life out of magic and raw essence. This unique ability has allowed the Shapers unrivaled control of their world. You, a young apprentice about to begin your training in earnest, have been sent along with your trainer, Shanti, to a far-flung outpost in a set of dry and dead mountains. You have been sent to find out why the town of Drypeak has broken contact with the Shaper council, a final apprentice’s task before you learn how to use magic and shape creatures to serve you.
Picking up from where the plot of the original Geneforge game left off, Geneforge 2 continues to provide users with a captivating story. Because there are four major ways to play Geneforge 2, and a thousand little choices that can effect the ending of the game and in how the factions and individual characters treat you, there are near infinite possibilities in replaying this game. While Geneforge 2 suffers from the same lack of graphical quality as Geneforge, it easily makes up for this with a story and set of characters so real that you feel rage when your allies are attacked, and sorrow when you’re forced to kill one of the people populating the world.
Strength: Wonderful story and richness to the world.
Weakness: Graphics are mediocre, and game is sometimes slow.
