WHQ2 is everything WHQ1 was and less.
Essentially the same graphics, but less variety.
Same weapons and spells, but less variety.
Same enemies, but weaker and less variety.
Same characters, basically, but less variety, less dynamic, and less potent.
Bad enough the characters, weapons, spells, and even enemies are nerfed and monotonous, but leveling up is horrible.
This is supposedly a premium, not a freemium, game, but you don’t earn nearly enough to keep promoting your characters. Well, I paid for the new lands, so I bit the bullet and bought 50,000 gold. Even that won’t keep you in promotions for long. Then again, I beat the whole game handily with low-level characters.
Also, skills do not advance by using, and leveling up brings only random improvements, which are often irrelevant to your class.
There literally seems to be not one single improvement in art, options, classes, play, variety, surprise, or challenge.
If you like this sort of game, and I do, buy WHQ1.
