Chuck Rock II may not be a substantial upgrade from the original, but it does represent a modest improvement.
Pari réussi pour cette conversion Mega-CD de Chuck Rock 2 : Son of Chuck. Le jeu garde toutes les qualités de la version Megadrive, tout en y rajoutant une bien meilleure bande-son et une durée de vie plus conséquente, via l'ajout d'un nouveau mode de difficulté. Malgré une maniabilité parfois délicate, Core Design nous offre donc un jeu de plates-formes extrêmement plaisant, dont les joueurs de Mega-CD auraient tort de se priver tant les titres de ce type sont rares sur ce support. Une valeur sûre.

De part son intérêt, sa réalisation et son humour, CHUCK 2 est un joyau taillé de mains de maîtres par les orfèvres de chez CORE DESIGN au meilleur de leur forme une fois de plus sur Mega CD. Tout simplement INDISPENSABLE !!!

So Chuck 2 isn't as memorable a Sega CD title as, say, Lunar: Eternal Blue or Snatcher. But when you consider the flood of FMV games that plagued and shortened the life of a very potential-ridden system, any real form of a 2D title is worth mentioning. Granted, the game hasn't aged very well, but at least the soundtrack's timeless.
There are a lot of things to not like about Chuck Rock II, especially the generic platforming elements, but the Sega CD's added extras are enough of a boost to make this game a lot of fun to play. If you own the cartridge already then I wouldn't go out of your way to buy this one. However, if you are thinking about buying this game and have a Sega CD, then get this version first because the intro is top notch. Just don't expect much from the single screen ending, because that was one of the game's letdowns.

Essentially the cartridge version with some improved graphics and, of course, great CD sound. There's no lag for access time in the amusing opening cartoon sequence. Chuck Rock is hilarious and could give Fred Flintstone an acting lesson or two.

The opening cartoon for this game is dynamite and the game isn't too shabby either. The control is a little stiff, so keep the punching bag handy. There is also a lot of humor to be found in the details of the levels.
