Was this the Genesis' finest hour? Very likely, yes. If asked to name its best games, I would choose Gunstar Heroes, Sonic 3 and Knuckles, Thunder Force 3, the EA Sports games, and maybe Fire Shark (for sentimental reasons). Herzog Zwei would top them all.
"Herzog zwei" ist genial und mittlerweile einfach Kult! Wieder so ein Spiel bei dem man ohne 3D Grafik, aufwendigen Sound und überkomplexem Gameplay richtig Spielspaß für mehrere Stunden haben kann. Einzig und allein überzeugte Einzelspieler sollten sich die Anschaffung überlegen, da "Herzog zwei" sein Flair erst im Multiplayer so richtig entfaltet.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
With two players, Herzog Zwei is very playable, though, and it's good to see another game that helps establish the Megadrive as a "real" computer, not just a machine for immobilised arcade players.
All Game Guide
Once you get past its minor problems, however, the game is a classic that's replayable and enjoyable years after its release. This is a landmark RTS title that no strategy fan should be without, and it's a fine cure for those days when you want a different kind of RTS to control.
Power Play
Langsam erscheinen immer bessere Titel für das Sega-Mega-Drive. Wer bislang glaubte, daß die große Sega-Konsole nur etwas für Actionspieler sei, wird mit dem feinen Strategie-Modul "Herzog 2" eines Besseren belehrt.
The Games Machine (UK)
But strategy on a console. Wonders will never cease? But it has to be stated that it's really a multi-direction shoot-'em-up with one or two tactical possibilities. Whether it's intended to get strategists to consider buying the console or to broaden the horizons of trigger-happy lunatics, I don't know. Either way. it's quite refreshing and can be quite addictive in two-player mode, fierce rivalry developing between friends.
Play Time
Ausgestattet mit einer informativen Grafik und einem guten Dutzend fetziger Techno-Songs wird HERZOG ZWEI langandauernde Beschäftigung in Aussicht stellen.Viel Spaß fürs Geld.
