->''"You must have been told that this is what the\\
cutting of your umbillical cord involved. The soli-\\
tary place of man awaits you now. The unequal\\
struggle awaits you now. But you should not go to\\
the underworld with heart knotted in anger."''
-->---A poem written by a Golem on the Titan's barrier.




Unlike the first game, which focused on the trials and tribulations of the Zenos, this game expands on the mysterious [[ThePrecursors Golems]] who guard the four corners of the FlatWorld that is Zenozoik and their plans for the Zenos within. As it turns out, the Golems have strife and emotional conflict of their own, and the Zenos were unlucky enough to get caught in the middle of it.

Also unlike the first game, it is far more open. While not a true WideOpenSandbox, players have far more freedom to do what they want and even have an over-world that can be explored for secrets and collectibles in between story segments.



* AlienNonInterferenceClause: While he was not strictly forbidden from doing so, Golem was never supposed to go into Zenozoik. Instead his sole task was to guard the Northern barrier and prevent the people of Zenozoik from crossing it [[spoiler: in order to protect the civilized world from the lawless Zenozoik inhabitants]]. However, he enters Zenozoik with Ghat and Deadra, hoping to bring civilization to it. He eventually realizes this was a foolish and hopeless endeavor.

** WordOfGod says that [[spoiler: yes, it's Chile.]] This matches up with the geography of Zenozoik and also happens to be where [[ACE Team, the developers, are based.]]

** It's implied that the events of AbyssOdyssey are canon history for Zenozoik, as [[spoiler:it's implied that the warlock never stopped dreaming, terraforming the land and conjuring up the ancestors of Zenozoik's people, and one tribe has taken a hint, digging into the earth to find the Warlock and whatever treasures he dreamed up]].

* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting: As the people of Zenozoik do not have any concept of law or justice, conflict resolution is done by fighting, much to Golem's exasperation. This [[JustifiedTrope Justifies]] why everyone is so good at fighting.*

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Kax-teh apparently executed/killed Nahuatl-teh for which Xotl-teh resents him greatly. Kax-teh responds by stating that his (Nuatl-teh) crimes were unforgivable [[spoiler: splicing new chimeras]].

* MadScientist: Done very subtly with the golems. Each of them (except maybe the golem of the west) appears to be obsessed/intrigued by experimenting on the inhabitants of Zenozoik. Kax-teh with law/governance, Xotl-teh with psychology/behavior and Nahuatl-teh with biology/genetics. Samoro-teh meanwhile is a mystery though it is mentioned that without any preocupation, the golems would eventually shrivel into dust.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: The golems apparently can function for 'several lifetimes' (possibly even longer [[spoiler: due to the cybernetic technology of the advanced society outside of Zenozoik]].
