When you consider that the game used to run on a complex laser disc system, you'll understand that it's a minor miracle we can play it at all. Unfortunately, the programmers can't compensate for the lack of playability which has carried over from the original.

The format of Dragon's Lair II is exactly the same as all of the other Sullivan Bluth games. Completing it is just a matter of attempting different joystick moves until Dirk jumps into the next scene. Sure the graphics and sound are superb but the gameplay is dull and repetitive. Unless you enjoyed the other games in the series or want to have a look at some of the best animation on the Amiga then I would recommend that you avoid this one, even if it is only because you can's afford the large price tap that has been stuck on it.

It's a tough one. As a game, Dragon's Lair 2 is visually stunning but as thin as your wallet after you've bought the damn thing. Find the right moves for each scene and you're through it. It's not easy, though, because in a five-second sequence and with half a dozen moves at your disposal, the possibilities are huge. But this just makes the game more frustrating. There's an incentive to see what happens next, and that keeps you plugging away. But get to end end once and you're not likely to want to play it again.

Der Rest der Menschheit wird mit Time Warp wohl nicht allzu viel Freude haben, zumal die Sache recht flott durchgespielt ist und dann alsbald in der Diskettenbox vergammelt. Für knapp 120 Märker erhält man hier wieder ein spielbares Demo mit viel Präsentations-Power und arg Gameplay — nicht mehr, aber kein bißchen weniger!

Buy Dragon's Lair, Space Ace and Escape From Singe's Castle? If you did and you enjoyed them, then you'll love this. The problem is, here at C+VG we like a bit of interaction and just like it's predecessor, Timewarp is just a case of moving the stick in the right direction at the right millisecond. Lovely graphics of course, but the lack of gameplay means this can't be recommended.
