Der geniale Genremix von Interplay gehört eigentlich in jede Spielesammlung denn nur wenige Spiele bieten so viel Spielspaß und Abwechslung. Der kluge Levelaufbau und die ständig wechselnden Anforderungen lassen keine Langeweile aufkommen, sowohl Jump‘n-Run-Fans als auch Rätselfreaks kommen voll auf Ihre Kosten. Der Comic-Stil von LV2 kann natürlich nicht mit den jüngeren 3D-Orgien mithalten, er paßt jedoch zur witzigen Story und solange das Spielprinzip stimmt, verzichte ich gerne auf Motion-Capturing und Echtzeit-3D. Zusammen mit Lemmings ist LV2 wohl das beste Geschicklichkeitsspiel der letzten Jahre.
Norse by NorseWest is a good puzzle game that offers just enough action to keep it interesting during long play sessions.
Absolute Playstation
Lost Vikings 2 is a decent platform game that is jam packed with humorous quips. It's flat 2D looks do no justice to the power of the Playstation but then again there are many titles around that have next generation graphics and the gameplay is crap. If you have played the original Lost Vikings then it may be worth checking out before buying and if not then give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Fans of the first game will be delighted to see the three friendly faces of the Vikings on the PlayStation, and there is a great deal to keep the long term challenge alive, but at the end of the day this is a 16-bit game converted with few frills. Sure it's time for Lost Vikings 3-D?
Beside innovation, Norse By Norsewest doesn't have much more to offer. Sprite-based graphics are pixelated and not too appealing to the eye. Colorful sounds on the other hand give the ear an occasional tingle. But with 31 levels of this, it tends to get repetitive and almost unenjoyable after awhile. If you like the Genesis version, then you'll definitely enjoy it. For those who never played the Genesis version, well, you're not missing too much.
