Play Time (Mar, 1992)
Leider kann die Spielbarkeit mit dem Rest des Spieles nicht mithalten, so daß sich die Suche nach dem geklauten Bruder mitunter als sehr mühsam erweist. Hierunter fallen sowohl der viel zu hohe Schwierigkeitsgrad, als auch die äußerst gewöhnungsbedürftige Steuerung. Wer sich davon aber nicht abschrecken lässt, bekommt eine gute Grafik und einen guten Sound geboten. Ob das allerdings reicht, um Euch zu überzeugen? Die Zukunft wird es zeigen.

ST Action (Nov, 1991)
The first Beast game was a bit of a disappointment but the sequel has been tarted up and the Amiga intro has been retained. It's a pity that the graphics are slightly dodgy and the scrolling a bit suspect as otherwise this would be quite a respectable little beat'em-up. The interactive puzzle-solving element prevents the game from becoming just another regular product but even so it could have been better than this. Shadow of the Beast II still suffers from some of the problems of the original, i.e. frustrating gameplay and very little to do. Fans of the first will lap it up, but it's not that different.

Power Play (Mar, 1992)
Die Atari-Version ist ein schwacher Abklatsch des Amiga-Vorbildes. Die Farbpracht ist einfallsloser, bei der Musik ist auch nicht viel los. Daß das T-Shirt (Packungsbeilage der Amiga-Version) nicht vorhanden ist, kann man verschmerzen, die lahme Steuerung jedoch nicht.
