5/10
Mick Fraser (God is a Geek)

Elex II is another example of Piranha Bytes aiming far too high. It’s a plodding, often clunky adventure with few bright spots.

Elex II is an ambitious and slightly bonkers open world RPG hampered by badly written and unpleasant characters.

Eric Hauter (Gaming Nexus)

Elex II ignores current game design ethos and rages to its own weird beat. Weird, fun, tough, and unpredictably funny, Elex II is feels like a DIY punk-rock open world game, janky and awesome all at the same time. Steer clear if you insist on perfection in your games, but if you are willing to go for the ride and appreciate the flaws instead of being bothered by them, you’ll find a deep and fun adventure unlike anything else on the market.
