Both the graphics and sound on Beach Head II impressed me as much as those on the original did a year ago. The game itself is harder than Beach Head although the actual ideas are just as simple and weak. It's an enjoyable game to play with oneself and is great fun with another person. Plenty of excellent options to aid lasting interest, but it's mainly the two player aspect that puts it so high in my books.
The evil Dictator from Beach Head is back again - but this time there's not a beach in sight. Even if he can't kick sand in the faces of the weak and defenceless it'll take all your Stallone skills to overcome him in his new jungle setting.
That's it then, and while Beach Head II is no classic it is different enough from the original. Perhaps the parts don't make up a satisfactory whole and the tiny graphics are hardly impressive, but if you were a fan of part one then this is worth a look.
On the whole the game was disappointing. The games themselves don't really stand up on their own and are much, much worse than budget games, even well below the standard of magazine listings. And considering the price of the game they should be of at least Mastertronic or Firebird standard each. As it is they are simple, boring, graphically Inadequate, and suffer from being converted from a disk based C64 to a single load CPC cassette format. Not very good at all.
