Hand of Fate 2 - Review

The first Hand of Fate, released over three years ago for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, was based on a very interesting idea. In the review of the time I defined the game as a sort of "fantasy solitaire", which combined the taste of products like Hero Quest or a part of the atmosphere of Dungeons & Dragons, with a single player card game. Or rather, "player vs dealer". The dealer plays a bit the role of the master: he draws and places on the table the cards that generate the different situations on which the adventure is based. The cards of the deck that the player can accumulate by playing interact with these. To all this we add some real-time combat, with a third-person view, as in a typical action game, and the fundamental element of permanent death, which gives the game a slightly roguelike aftertaste, even if the sense of progress between one match and the other is very marked.

For a series of technical problems and some questionable design choices, however, I did not like the first Hand of Fate very much, despite the fact that the premises were practically all to my liking. At the end of last year, Hand of Fate 2 was released, again for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but I didn't happen to try it (our Damaso told you about it in the Steam Treasures column).


These days, however, I have played the recent version for Switch, also intrigued by the advantages that a console at the same time fixed and portable could give to an idea of this kind. Well, after about ten hours of play, the results sail between highs and lows. Thus, the game itself is vastly improved over its predecessor. Defiant did a great job of trying to alleviate the angles of the first episode as much as possible. The annoying loading times that had plagued my experience with the original are now drastically reduced, the adventures are much more varied, the storylines more interesting and some relevant news make the game much more multifaceted.

Even the combat system has improved quite a bit, while still remaining a bit crude compared to the combat system of a real action game. Even the structure, in the adventure mode, is now richer and more engaging, thanks to a world map (new) that keeps track of the individual adventures already completed. The introduction of the followers, then, is certainly pleasant. During the various adventures it is possible to complete certain questlines that allow us to add a follower card to our deck (or at least to our collection). The follower can be a wizard, a warrior or in any case a non-player character that we carry with us in our raids and who can help us in combat with specific skills, as well as - trivially - representing an additional mouth of fire.


The best of Hand of Fate 2, however, remains that taste of adventure mixed with the sensations of a procedural / random dungeon crawler, with the possibility, however, for the player, to get their hands in this randomness, choosing many at the beginning of the mission of the elements that will make up his next adventure. The lyrics are well written and, yes, after a few games they will inevitably become a bit repetitive, but if the game is used for a game from time to time, that won't necessarily get boring. By the way, in this second episode all the texts are also in Italian, which is great for those who do not have a good command of English.

Everything fine then? Not exactly. Unfortunately, a series of very appreciable improvements counterbalances what I think is a lack of optimization of the game for Switch. Let's be clear: from a technical point of view the game works well. The problem is another and concerns the games in portable mode, where the texts are written with a font size that is difficult to read. For heaven's sake, if it were a sentence every now and then, it would not even be noticed: the texts can in fact be read, once and for all. But Hand of Fate 2, like its predecessor, is a game where reading is a fundamental and abundant component. Without exaggerating, a good 50% of the game time is spent reading and making decisions based on what you have read.


For this reason, I had to reluctantly give up gaming in portable mode, which in the long run becomes really too uncomfortable and tiring. In TV mode, however, the game behaves very well and allows you to appreciate all the improvements that have occurred compared to the first episode. A real shame, then. It would have been appropriate, in my opinion, to rethink the graphical interface a bit in order to give more space to the texts in the Switch's portable mode. These are things to consider when platforms are different: the smartphone version of Hearthstone, for example, is not a simple shrinkage of the tablet / PC one, but it has a completely different interface.

If you are interested, then, know that the game is very nice and perfect in TV mode. If you are used to using Switch especially in portable mode, however, think carefully: there are a lot of texts to read (it is an important part of the experience) and the font size is not adequate for continuous use of a 6.2-inch 720p screen.

MODUS OPERANDI
I downloaded Hand of Fate 2 for Switch thanks to a game download code provided by the developer. I tried it in portable mode, but I had to surrender to a too uncomfortable reading, thus taking refuge for ten hours in the excellent TV mode with the console connected to a 39-inch Full HD LCD from Panasonic (BL6E series).
