I genuinely found MNOG II to be the better game in the series. If any one can counter my argument as to why MNOG was better with nostalgia goggles ON/[OFF] I would like to see it.
MNOG was a more polished and concise experience. It never felt repetitive, and told an exciting story from the get-go. MNOG II, on the other hand, suffered from crippling bugs. Too much of the game was padded with materials gathering and trading and "grinding" stats in repetitive minigames just to stand a chance in the buggy and lackluster Kolhii minigame. The actual action in MNOG II doesn't begin until a ways into the game, when the Rahkshi start to attack; contrast that with MNOG, where the game opens with Macku pleading with you to save her village. I did appreciate the worldbuilding in MNOG II, such as the many diverse Matoran names, as well as the Matoran philosophical concepts like the Virtues, Principles, Skills, and enemies of each Matoran tribe. But this worldbuilding was bogged down by a game that, at its core, just wasn't fun to play.
