Point Blank 2 is nog leuker dan z'n voorganger. Er zijn zo verschrikkelijk veel verschillende levels dat het lijkt alsof het nooit kan gaan vervelen.

It's more of the same from Namco, but there's nothing wrong with that. Apart from having a greater degree of depth, Point Blank 2 is also considerably more difficult than the original game. Most of the screens have been designed with multiple players in mind. As a two player game Point Blank is excellent and I can think of no better entertainment than a couple of buddies spending the evening firing blanks at the TV screen. All good, harmless fun.

The Video Game Critic
The one-player variations are mildly amusing, but with unlimited continues, they're not much of a challenge. The two-player mode is where it's at. One major flaw with both Point Blank games is the ridiculous number of set-up screens required to begin a game. I can't even imagine trying to organize an eight player game! As with all Namco shooters, this requires a Guncon controller - the best light gun on the market.

GameSpot
This game is just as addictive as Point Blank, yet it has greater difficulty and strategy elements, along with the new modes, making the experience one step beyond mesmerizing and quite an authentic challenge. Fans of Point Blank will certainly not be disappointed, and those who thought Point Blank was a bit too remedial will probably feel right at home.

This is the long wanted return of Playstation's craziest shoot 'em up game.

Point Blank 2 is essentially a rehash of the original Point Blank. Although this isn't a bad thing, Point Blank 2 just doesn't offer anything truly new. What we have here is a fun light-gun game for all ages. Just watch out for Mayor McCheese - I think he's still steamed about being thrown out of McDonaldland.

Spel för Alla
Skjuta prick kanske låter tråkigt. Eller? Efter att ha sett både kidnappande ufon, dödskallebomber (skjut inte på dem!) och klättrat genom labyrinter där du ska övervinna vampyrfladdermöss eller förtrollade rustningar – hela tiden med hjälp av prickskytte såklart – så tycker jag att Point Blank 2 är ett roande spel. Det har mer tävlingsmoment än både Judge Dread och Die Hard Trilogy. Dessa två kanske är snyggare och fyllda av mer action, men Point Blank är ett prickskyttespel, och ett bra sådant. Nackdelen är förstås att du måste ha en ljuspistol för att kunna spela, och en sådan kostar en del. Har du redan en är det här spelet helt okej.

Point Blank 2 est le fidèle successeur de son aîné... trop, diront certains. Si la réalisation est des plus simplistes, le plaisir de jeu est au rendez-vous, principalement à plusieurs. Pour se défier entre amis, rien de tel que Point Blank 2, surtout si vous possédez deux GunCon, investissement peut-être trop grand pour n'être finalement intéressant que pour un seul et unique jeu...

La note est élevée uniquement pour le mode multijoueurs car on s'amuse beaucoup à shooter partout. Passé un temps, les graphismes pauvres et les musiques sans âme auront raison de vous en mode solo.

Avec son petit menu d'entraînement et ses défis pour deux joueurs, le jeu est donc plaisant pour qui a investi dans le Guncon si peu utilisé. Mais si vous possédé déjà Gun Bulett/Point Blank, ce sera peut-être superflu.

C'est peut-être marrant d'y jouer une fois, mais les graphismes sont tellement fades que la lassitude pointe son nez. PB2 est donc un jeu que je vous déconseille vivement d'acheter.
