All this addictiveness, playability and all these graphics are complimented with a splattering of attractive special effects (just look at that title screen), that tone up the game and provide an added incentive to complete each level. After a bad patch, Virgin seems to have regained its former glory, Dan Dare I was brill, Dan Dare 2 was exceptional and Action Force 2, well it's transcended!
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Although the game style is not original and it doesn't take long to learn the whereabouts of the enemy on any particular level, it's playable stuff with plenty of that "just one more go" addictiveness.

Alles in allem ist ACTION FORCE II also ein rundum gelungenes Actionspiel, das seinen Vorgänger in der Qualität bei weitem übertrifft und viele interessante Features aufweist. Die Gang of Five hat sich ins Zeug gelegt und ein brillantes Game mit tollen technischen Tricks programmiert (mal abgesehen vom (fast) nicht vorhandenen Sound). So gibt es ein faszinierendes Titelbild in Interrupttechnik, die dem Spectrum eine Farbenvielfalt und -dichte abverlangt, zu der er normalerweise gar nicht in der Lage ist. Das muß man gesehen haben! Einzig und allein der Plot ist mir zu brutal und geschmacklos, zumal ACTION FORCE eine Kinderpuppen-Serie a lá Mastets of the Universe ist. Aber was soll man machen, wenn ein Spiel ganz einfach viel Spaß macht???
