Il faut dire que le premier volet, à part la rencontre avec le Beholder, était un peu trop simple. Ici, rien de tel et il faut véritablement se tordre les méninges pour espérer arriver en bon état à la fin de l'aventure. Heureusement, il est possible, en cours de route, d'enrôler des personnages supplémentaires. Techniquement, rien à redire : c'est beau, rapide et pratique.

If you've already got an RPG then think twice about whether you want another just yet, but if you're still pondering over which one to buy then I'd recommend this one. Hardly original, but there's life in the old dog yet. Just.

Amiga Action
For someone who doesn't claim to be an ardent or, for that matter, competent role player, I seem to be reviewing an awful lot of 'em lately. Not that I'm complaining, though, cos I do enjoy playing them.

They don't come much better than this, so ready for the adventure of a lifetime...

If you only buy one role-playing game this year, make sure it's this one, because despite a lack of significant improvements, it's still the best.

The graphics and sound are great - much better than those in the recent Abandoned Places and Black Crypt, and the whole package is very atmospheric. The only niggle I found was that the mouse control seized up once or twice during fights - not amusing. What else can I say? It's superb. Easily as good as Dungeon Master. Maybe even better.

EOBII is simply one of the finest dungeon crawls to come out in a very long time. If that's what you're looking for, come on in and spend some time in the cosy environs of Darkmoon...

Amiga Power
A must for the dedicated RPG enthusiast (déjà vu anyone? Yes, we have said that a few too many times lately...) and, in tandem with the original, makes for an utterly huge world in which you could fritter away weeks of your life. Not such a huge leap in RPG standards as the first game was - which makes it a bit disappointing - but still an excellent game.

Amiga Joker
Erneut fliegen also die Wurfmesser, Pfeile oder Feuerspells im Echtzeit durch beeindruckende 3D-Grafiken, die Zwischenbilder und fesch animierten Monster haben gegenüber dem ersten Teil der Saga nochmals zugelegt. Man schreitet ungemein flott durch die Abenteuerlandschaft, das Nachladen hält sich in engen Grenzen – einfach eine saubere Leistung! Der Sound (Musik & FX) hat ebenfalls nichts von seinen atmosphärischen Qualitäten verloren, und die Handhabung ist eh ein Gedicht. Das Lob erstreckt sich auch auf die erträgliche Diskwechselei, ein Zweitlaufwerk und dazu vielleicht 2MB Arbeitsspeicher machen eine Harddisk-Installation fast überflüssig. Somit ist Eye of the Beholder II zwar nicht mehr so innovativ, wie es sein Wegbereiter war, kann jedoch mit vielen Verbesserungen im Detail aufwarten.

Power Play
Die 32-Farben-Grafik und der genügsame, aber stimmungsvolle Sound stehen der PC-Pracht kaum nach. Auch Rollenspieleinsteiger werden ihren Spaß mit der besseren Fortsetzung haben.
