Summary

A great game in its own right, though I like the first one better.

The Good

There's no clear reason why I prefer the first Dungeon Keeper - I just do. The second installment in the series is indeed a wonderful game - witty sense of humour, great 3D/sound engine, excellent scenarios - everything you'd expect from a game of this caliber.

The Bad

Problem is, it doesn't retain the charm of the first game, nor is the introduction sequence equally immersive. The first game is one of the games I like most, and while this game is by far technically superior, it simply lacks the qualities and innovasion which made the first game what it was.

The Bottom Line

A wonderful game most people find extremely solid and likable.
