Dealer’s Life 2 Review

Welcome to my review of Dealer’s Life 2 on the PC. Dealer’s Life 2 is out now on Steam and is brought to us by developers Abyte Entertainment (Dealer’s Life), they also self-published the game. In this game, we play as a manager of a pawnshop where we must haggle prices on items so we can make higher profits when it comes to selling those items to potential buyers.

A Deal’s Life Isn’t For Me

So will Dealer’s Life 2 be worth the risk, or is it another game to sit in the collection, collecting dust? Continue reading to find out. Check out my previous review where I played Power to the People.

The Game

So the premise of the game is simple. We manage a pawnshop where we must make as much money as possible to keep the roof over our heads. Our friend Bob Rascal has found the perfect place for us to get started. There is more to the game but that’s basically it. It’s said that this game has “The most technically advanced negotiation engine you’ve ever seen” which I can believe.

Hey, Bob!

The haggling in the game is quite cool I will admit, but there’s not really much else to the game. It does have a huge collection of different items you can buy from and sell to customers. There is also the chance that you’ll find counterfeit items but you’ll need a sharp eye to spot the item otherwise you’ll end up losing a potential fortune from your business, so be wary.

Could have cleaned it first!

Each customer has their own personality and will look quite unique to any others you see. Each will try to make as much money as they can out of you, or, buy an item for as low as possible, naturally. When you progress further into the game you can hire employees to assist you with your daily pawnshop operations. Also, keep your eyes peeled ready for the movie and videogame quotes you may come across.

Look & Sound

Unfortunately, the graphics and audio aren’t great in this game. The soundtrack gets a little annoying after a while, unfortunately, which may lead to the player turning the music off. The graphics, whilst colourful and unique, aren’t anything special really. They’re not terrible, the designs of customers are quite nice, edges are nice and smooth, and the textures on the 2D setting look decent. But there is nothing special going on.

The graphics aren’t too bad.

Sounds in the games are rather basic too.

Length & Replayability

You can play this game for as long as you want to. There are also three save slots so you could, in theory, have three pawnshops running at any one time (playing one at a time of course). Dealer’s Life 2 has 51 achievements for the player to unlock.


My final thoughts for Dealer’s Life 2 are that whilst the concept of the game is fantastic, it just doesn’t feel exciting enough to play for me. Unfortunately, it just didn’t grip me like I thought it would. I couldn’t get into it at all which is a real shame as it looked like the sort of game that I could sink a good few hours into.

It saddens me to give Dealer’s Life 2 a score of 1/10. Should you want to check the game out for yourself, you can do so on the Dealer’s Life 2 Steam page.
