Amiga Action
Several years ago the original Battle Chess received high acclaim among the gaming public. Its animation stunned people and brought a new lease of life to an old style of game. The sequel is basically a reproduction of the original game but uses a slightly different scenario as its subject. Chess experts and new players alike should find the Chinese variant interesting and challenging. If you are interested in classic strategy games Battle Chess II should be on the top of your shopping list.
Battle Chess II är trots allt ett välgjort spel. Sympatiskt är att tillverkarna fortfarande gör udda spel som inte riktar sig mot den stora massan.

Battle Chess II macht also Spaß — fragt sich nur, wie lange. Wer erstmal all die witzigen Animationen kennt, wird bald über schlechte Übersichtlichkeit, lange Wartezeiten und schließlich Langeweile klagen. Da sich die Spielstärke für einen Mitteleuropäer schwer beurteilen läßt, können wir das Game bedenkenlos nur den Einsteigern ins asiatische Königsmorden empfehlen.
