Since the first Gauntlet has never been available on the Amiga, this is the obvious choice if you want to buy one definitive D + D game on 16 bit. For unabashed playability and downright fun, Gauntlet II is unbeatable.

I've never seen an arcade conversion done any better. The animation is fast, the sound effects are incredible, and the gameplay is second to none. If you've played Gauntlet in the arcade, you won't be disappointed with this sequel. If you haven't, don't bother - just buy Gauntlet II.

Gameplay hasn't altered - same manic charging around, shooting and collecting things.

If it comes to a straight choice between Garrison II and Gauntlet II then Garrison II wins. But if you have the interface and three friends who want to play too, then Gauntlet II is the choice for you.

On the other hand, for anyone still hungry for some maze-based ghoolie bashing, Gauntlet II is just the ticket.

To be honest I prefer playing Garrison in two-player mode, because it has a bigger playing area and better graphics. That said, Gauntlet can support more players, has better in game sound effects and is still a decent game. Having said that, it looks and plays exactly like the ST version (except the ghosts are marginally faster) and the scrolling isn't perfect. Still, if you want a good multiplayer mindless thrash then Gauntlet II should suffice, so polish that broadsword and get hacking.

Außer einem Face-Lifting gibt es bei der Grafik von Gauntlet II dagegen nicht viel zu sehen, so daß Euch wieder eine Miniaturgrafik à la Gauntlet I bevorsteht, die zudem mit einem typischen Ruckelscrolling einhergeht. Die Sprachausgabe (immerhin!) wie auch die sonstigen Sound FX klingen miserabel. Nicht einmal die Tatsache, daß Ihr Gauntlet II per Adapter in einer flotten Viererrunde spielen könnt, läßt den Kauf dieses Actiongames lohnenswert erscheinen, selbst als Low Budget!
