Card City Nights 2 Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Card City Nights 2 by Ludosity. I received a copy of the game for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, however, this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences.
Card City Nights 2 is a collectible card battle game and sequel to the first Card City Nights. The game features many changes from the first game including a new setting, a new theme, a refined battle system and an online mode.
In this sequel, the game takes on a sci-fi theme and you explore a space ship instead of a city. The space ship is very much like a cruise liner with various sectors to visit and lots of people to meet. The main character wakes up in the freezer of a restaurant and is thrust into a tournament of card battles. Your goal is to climb the ranks by defeating the leader of each rank. The story is pretty linear and you’ll face various characters in your journey to the top.
There are a few types of battles but the main one that you’ll be playing is your standard card battle against an opponent. The leaders of each tier will often have you battle in a best out of 3 battle so the winner is the one who has the most wins out of 3.
Battles are pretty simple to learn. You have your deck of 24 cards and your objective is to line up the arrows on your cards. There are arrows on each corner and edge of your card. When you line up 3 cards through these arrows, the cards will activate. Once they are active their turn counter will begin depleting. When the turn counter reaches 0, it will activate it’s ability. Your main goal is to drain your opponent’s armor to 0. The first player to do this is declared the winner.
The game is quite fun and it’s story mode offers quite a few hours of enjoyment. If you wish to get more enjoyment, you can hop online and play other players. The game automatically searches for players to go up against after you choose your deck.
Overall, Card City Nights 2 is a pretty big improvement over the first game. It’s art style is great and I loved the soundtrack, which was incredibly catchy. If you’re in the market for something casual, simple to get into and fun, to get into then Card City Nights 2 is definitely a great option.
Thanks for taking the time to read the review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
