Zeno Clash 2 review: weird science

Zeno Clash 2's story is ... complicated, following the adventures of Zeno Clash (the first) protagonist Ghat as well as newcomer Rimat. Having defeated and discovered the truth about their clan leader, the enigmatic FatherMother, the duo finds themselves set against a new enemy known as the Golem, who has taken control over Zenozoik. The hidden logic behind how the world of Zenozoik operates is revealed in tiny, masterful pieces. Rimat and Ghat engage in fisticuffs with several different clans, each with a unique visual style and intriguing backstory. Each miniature revelation hooked me deeper into Zeno Clash 2's world, expanding both its physical borders and my understanding — and it all built to a satisfying payoff far better than the first game. But the vehicles through...

Zeno Clash 2, the first-person action game from ACE Team, will be released June 12 on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points ($10), Microsoft's Major Nelson announced today. ACE Team released the Windows PC version of the surreal brawler on April 30; it will also be available on PlayStation Network, but the studio has yet to announce a release date for that platform.

Zeno Clash 2 gameplay walkthrough features grotesque manbeasts and fistfights

A new video out for ACE Team's indie first-person brawler Zeno Clash 2 shows some of the new additions to the game's combat, and explores the city of Halstedom. Protagonist Ghat starts the video by getting into a bar fight, and while Zeno Clash 2 allows you to call allies in to help you out, the player opts not to. Zeno Clash 2 adds some new options and attacks when countering an enemy's blow, for instance, as well as a reverse kick to deal with foes flanking you from behind. Enemies can also now be "juggled" in midair like in a fighting game. After the fight, Ghat explores the city of Halstedom, giving viewers a glimpse at the advancement tools and sidequests to be featured in Zeno Clash 2 — for instance, capturing colored moths so a painter can make pigment. The art, environment...

Zeno Clash 2 gameplay trailer reintroduces fists to faces

ACE Team has released a new gameplay trailer for the sequel to its 2009 surreal fantasy first-person brawler Zeno Clash, and it has plenty of face-punching to go around. The trailer reintroduces us to fugitive protagonist Ghat and a companion named Rimat before immediately launching into the brawls. As in the first game, Ghat is able to dodge, block, and rearrange the already-grotesque faces of the bestial inhabitants of the land of Zenozoik. Also shown is a brief glimpse of Zeno Clash 2's added RPG elements, allowing players to level up Ghat's physical attributes and "leadership." Zeno Clash 2 is slated for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PCs later this year.
