All in all, Red Arremer II is an awesome and fun game, but be aware of its sheer difficulty (not as bad as other early Makaimura games though).
The gameplay rarely lets up, keeping the player on edge. Add that to the beautiful stages with their own bespoke enemies and music, and it makes for an absolute masterclass in gaming.
Gargoyle's Quest II til NES opfylder alle vore forventninger og er faktisk bedre end den klassike etter.

This was a criminally overlooked second entry in a criminally overlooked trilogy. It’s highly unlikely that I’ll ever get another Firebrand adventure, but that’s why retro gaming is so fun. I can pop this cart into my NES and remember what a cool character and world Capcom created, and I can fantasize about what else could have been done with this series. I highly suggest you seek out a copy of Gargoyle’s Quest 2 so that you have the opportunity to do the same.

If you're in the retro mood, Gargoyle's Quest 2 is the perfect pick-up. It's a very good platformer with a twist of RPG elements to create something different. Though the actual cart is a little tough to find we can hope to see a release on virtual console in the future...*cough*oryoucouldgooglesearchnintendoemulatorsandroms*cough*

Die Mischung aus Adventure und Jump´n´run ist wirklich sehr erfrischend und vermag hartgesottene Spieler mit Sicherheit in ihren Bann zu ziehen. Wegen des hohen Frustfaktors erhält Gargoyle´s Quest 2 von mir nur acht Punkte, auch wenn es aufgrund der interessanten Handlung und guten technischen Aufmachung mehr verdient hätte.

Comento também que o replay do game é nulo, ou seja, não há side-quests no game, e esse foi um GRANDE ERRO que a Capcom corrigiu com uma pincelada de capricho na sequência deste grande game, Gargoyle’s Quest 2, em Demon’s Crest para Super Nintendo! Muita diversão o espera, a única barreira que pode lhe impedir de se divertir neste game é ter medo de… demônios! BHUAHAUGHAUAUAGHU!
This is a great game for those die-hard action buffs who might be interested in giving RPGs a try.

I’d like to say that Gargoyle’s Quest II is a fun and fulfilling experience, but it lacks any sort of variety that would have increased its replayability. It’s certainly enjoyable while you’re playing and you can tell from the overall polish of the game that Capcom took great relish in updating its spin-off series from gray-and-green to hi-fi color. Still, I was expecting something more than a series of timing exercises. Let’s call it, “heart.”
