User Reviews

Great game, but doesn't compare with the original DOS Terry Callahan (67)
A brilliant sequel to a well-known classic DOS Arejarn (762)
Bigger, harder, less scary. DOS Sycada (175)
Not a patch on the original, but fun nevertheless.... PlayStation Melvin Raeynes (26)
Great game marred by fatal flaws. DOS null-geodesic (235)
A disappointing sequel, yet still worth a look for series fans. DOS woods01 (154)
Makes the mistake of focusing on the fighting. DOS Simon Kavanagh (6)
