Video Game Review: Roblox’s Murder Mystery 2 Will Have You Dodging A Killer

Three primary modes of play all in the beta-testing stage for the MM2 in which survival really is name of the game. 

Murder Mystery 2, called MM2 by fans, is a popular Roblox game created by nStudio. The game is a sort of sequel to the original classic Murder Mystery.

The new version is a turn-based survival game that takes the player through different maps and modes of play. “Players can level up, prestige and gain rare and interesting weapons (or variants of a weapon) from mystery boxes or other means such as trading and crafting,” Roblox says.

The Landscape:

The game is divided into three primary modes of play, and they are all in the beta testing stage. For now the only real way to play the game is in the adventure mode. The game mode that the player is allowed to progress with is somewhat perplexingly called the casual mode. It is interesting considering there are no other modes to distinguish the casual mode from some other, more serious mode.

From the game’s Wiki:

There are defined roles in the game, as well, which help players make a final decision in solving the mystery. Listed below are the objectives of roles:

Innocents: Run and hide from the Murderer. Use your detective skills to expose the Murderer.

Sheriff: Work with the Innocents. This character is the only one with a weapon who can take down the Murderer.

Murderer: Kill everyone in the server and don’t get shot by the sheriff.

Hero: This role can only be obtained after recovering the gun from the dead sheriff and then proceeding to shoot the murderer with it.
