Mean Machines (Oct, 1993)
It's not a world beater on the graphics front but for challenge and addictive value Blaster Master II is a sure-fire winner.
GameFan Magazine (Apr, 1993)
I've never seen the original Blaster Master, but after playing the sequel I'm going to. This game is so cool and long you'll automatically get addicted. The detailed graphics and colorful backgrounds are astounding. I especially liked the overhead levels. Don't overlook this sequel, it's hot.
Power Unlimited (Oct, 1993)
De graphics en geluiden van Masterblaster 2 (opvolger van de NES-classic) zijn beide erg goed, maar toch mist er iets in dit spel. Het is wel heel erg onorigineel. Niet echt een aanrader dus.
SuperGame (Aug, 1993)
Seu planeta foi invadido por mutantes dispostos a anexá-lo a seu império. Então, você embarca num tanque com um arsenal sofisticado. Além de ter de atravessar os mais perigosos terrenos, você precisa enfrentar criaturas bestiais.
As a big fan of the 8-Bit version, I must say that I am not disappointed with Blaster Master 2.

I expected great things from this sequel, and what I got would have been much better if it bore a different name. As a sequel, it does just enough to live up to its moniker, but little else. The weak power ups, cheap A.I., brutal difficulty, and frustrating controls suck away any spark of life that might have been born on the drawing board. Maybe someday Jason will be able to ride SOPHIA through a truly wonderful adventure, but this game is set on cruise control.
HonestGamers (Apr 30, 2012)
The first game was an adventure foremost, and that’s what resonated with so many of the people who played it, so, of course, Blaster Master 2 strips away a lot of made the previous game unique and memorable then does its level best to turn it into just another scrolling shooter. Even here, it fails. It doesn’t do anything competently enough to find any sliver of saving grace and exists only as a sobering example of completely missing the entire bloody point.
