Top Secret (Sep, 1992)
Po wielkim sukcesie gry "Elvira I" miłośnicy gier i horrorów oczekiwali z niecierpliwością na drugą część. I oto jest. Grafika wspaniała, muzyka rewelacyjna, scenariusz genialny - dla mnie to gra roku.
MegaZone (Jun, 1992)
Speedy, excellent animation, graphics, music, documentation all really make up for an excellent game, don't they? You bet!
Datormagazin (Apr 09, 1992)
Det är extremt svårt att överleva särskilt länge. Dessutom: en del av problemen har extremt långsökta lösningar. I vilket fall som helst har jag blivit sittande ett avsevärt antal timmar med Elvira II. Och det om något är väl ett bevis för att det är ett bra spel.
Amiga Joker (Feb, 1992)
In punkto Grafik, Sound und (Maus/Icon-) Steuerung hat sich ebenfalls nichts Weltbewegendes getan, was den gruseligen Inhalt angeht – alles von gewohnter Güte, auf Elvira kann man sich einfach verlassen. Was die technische Seite betrifft, sollte man die Empfehlung des Herstellers, eine Harddisk zu benutzen, sehr ernst nehmen. Das Game läßt sich zwar auch von Disks spielen, aber in diesem Fall wird man mit unserer Handhabungsnote kaum einverstanden sein. Und da auch die zahlreichen Rätsel des Grusicals wieder in etwas den Knackigkeitsgrad des ersten Teils aufweisen, ist man auf zusätzliche (technische) Probleme ja wirklich nicht angewiesen...
Amiga Action (May, 1992)
Elvira II is a good, solid adventure/role playing game, which is professionally presented with a true quality feel to it. The colour and detail of the graphics capture the spirit of Elvira's real life on-screen sets with her character also accurately conveyed. Thrumming in the background is the music: subtle melodies that maintain Elvira spirit and mood. To begin with, you wish for a great deal more interaction and involvement but this increases the further you venture into the game. As a worthy sequel, Accolade should be supremely confident of another highly successful Elvira title.
Amiga Format (May, 1992)
Elvira II is derivative and sensationalist, therefore it is likely to sell in the thousands. This isn't too big a problem as the game's actually a hell of a lot of fun. Instead of intricate spell casting involving all sorts of mysterious items, Elvira's spells run perfectly well off fire extinguishers and bleach. Her earthy sense of humour runs throughout the game, making it a kind of Bored With the Rings meets acid-house Dungeon Master. You'd better hope and prey that you make it safe back to your own world.
Elvira II is a decent RPG, marred by excessive disk loading and swapping - there are occasions when the loading takes up more time than the action - but with plenty of monsters, good combat and magic systems, and a large landscape to explore, there's plenty to keep you entertained. All you need is patience...
Nun treibt die Dame also auch auf dem Amiga ihr Unwesen: Elvira II – The Jaws of Cerberus hat in der Umsetzung nichts von ihrem Horror verloren. Komplett in Deutsch darf man sich mit Vampiren, Zombies, Ratten, Goblins und anderem Gesocks herumprügeln und -zaubern, Katakomben sind reichlich vorhanden, die Rätsel haben es zum Teil echt in sich und bis man die Zutaten zu den ganzen Zaubertränken gefunden hat, vergeht eine Menge Zeit.
CU Amiga (Mar, 1992)
The graphics are suitably dark and gruesome in parts, with some very detailed screens, but these usually cover up the fact that there's little to do in some sections. For my money, however, I like a bit more excitement and a lot less expense. Elvira might be one of the most desirable women on the planet, but she'll just have to live without me this time.
Play Time (1992)
Wer sich mit der Kampfsteuerung anfreundet und gerne modrigen Gruftengeruch in der Nase hat, darf sich trotz kleiner Schwächen gepflegt ängstigen.
Amiga Power (May, 1992)
So, a disappointment then. Should you choose to tackle Elvira you will find your hands full. The mountain to climb is high and the sluggish interlace, lack of any atmosphere, shortage of interesting and varied puzzles or worthwhile substance makes your route to her chamber long and hard.
