Bien que les joueurs puissent se montrer rĂ©ticents quant Ă  cette nouvelle adaptation cinĂ©matographique, Gremlins 2 : The New Batch s’avĂšre ĂȘtre une agrĂ©able surprise. DotĂ© d’excellents graphismes atteignant un rare niveau de dĂ©tails, le soft retranscrit avec brio l’ambiance du film et offre en plus un gameplay riche et variĂ©. C’est Ă  l’aide de nombreux objets que Gizmo devra se frayer un chemin dans le building infestĂ© de Gremlins et tenter de tous les Ă©radiquer. Sunsoft, signe lĂ , l’un des plus beaux jeux de la NES.

Gremlins 2 est si bon que l'on ressent son influence chez d'autres, mais oui, comme Zombies de Lucasarts sur Super Nintendo (la perspective, les araignées, la lave, les surfaces de pointes... et les tomates !). En attendant d'autres tests de jeux de cette compagnie qui, sur NES, vaut son pesant d'or autant que Konami et Capcom, on se replongera avec inlassable délice dans leurs deux adaptations captivantes de films à succÚs.

Mean Machines (Feb, 1991)
Lordy, a good license for a film sequel! What ever next? Seriously, Gremlins II is a great game, packed with humour and fun throughout. The developers have worked hard at getting the most out of the graphics, making them as accurate as possible (although it can be tricky at first to judge jumps). The sound is incredible: extra chips have been used to make the music and effects top notch, adding enormously to the appeal of the game. As for the playability, it's of a very high standard, and always fun, with the difficulty pitched so that everyone can progress at first, but later levels can only be passed by skill and practice. The later levels are my favourites, as the difficulty is matched by the increased fun - but the Gremlins themselves are tough opponents!

Special props go to Sunsoft for the top-notch eight-way controls. Shooting may not be as smooth with the D-pad as with other eight-way directional games like Contra, but I still managed to hit my targets more often than not. Here’s one licensed game for the NES that doesn’t reek of horse manure. That still doesn’t mean you should play it after midnight, though. That’s asking for it.

NES Archives (Jul 30, 2006)
This is a fun game for everyone. Gremlins fans and moderate gamers will especially like this game as it is hard at first but becomes pretty easy. If only they would have made a Gremlins 1

Raze (Jul, 1991)
Very playable with five large levels.

Now you can join Gizmo, Billy, Mohawk, and a whole new batch of Gremlins as they once again turn Kingston Falls upside down in this super new NES game from Sunsoft.

Interface (1991)
Gremlins 2 Ă€r nĂ€mligen ett SVÅRT spel, Gizmosarna dör som flugor redan tidigt i spelet och det Ă€r oerhört irriterande att tvingas kĂ€mpa med en och samma nivĂ„ i dagar. Till slut vill man bara ge upp. Mycket av detta beror pĂ„ att man inte har nĂ„gon joystick. Spelet krĂ€ver nĂ€mligen precision, och det Ă€r svĂ„rt att Ă„stadkomma precision med ett löarvigt litet "tryckkors". Sorgligt, eftersom Nintendo lagt ner sĂ„ mycket möda pĂ„ Gizmos rörelsemönster. Vitsen med att kunnga svĂ€nga i luften försvinner nĂ€r man vinglar runt som en skadskjuten krĂ„ka.

Gremlins 2: the New Batch is a fantastic game, highly underappreciated but well worth your time. I owe it to Nintendo Power for bringing it to my attention and their praise was right. This is a game that for all intents and purposes should not be this good. One of the most underrated games in the NES library and a true hidden gem.

Os endiabrados monstrinhos de Steven Spielberg estão de volta: desta vez, eles ameaçam tomar conta de Nova York. Gizmo, o bonzinho, precisarå da sua ajuda para derrotar Mohawk, o líder, que aparecerå no final de cada estågio sob diferentes formas.

Jag vet vad ni tÀnker! Ett videospel gjort pÄ en film, och dessutom pÄ en film som Àr en uppföljare. Det vet man ju hur sÄdana brukar vara! Men se dÀr bedrar ni er! För det hÀr Àr ett riktigt bra spel. Till skillnad frÄn det första Gremlinspelet som fanns till en del hemdatorer har det hÀr bÄde bra grafik, ordentlig utmaning för spelaren samt flera olika variationer pÄ vad Gizmo kan göra pÄ sin vÀg genom genlabbet. Att Gizmo dessutom Àr utomordentligt söt nÀr han tultar fram gör ju inte det hela sÀmre.

Retro Game Age (Mar 26, 2012)
I admit that were it not for the Nintendo Power review I would never have bothered with Gremlins 2. I liked the movie well enough but the thought of a game based on its events seemed destined to join the ranks of Total Recall and Predator. But I should have known better considering the architects behind it. Now if only they had survived the transition to the 32-bit era.

Sunsoft seems to be the only company who can bring movies to games. Gremlins remind me of Fester's, with the exception of jumping. Excellent cinema displays, great graphics and sound, as well as challenging play!

Gremlins 2 was one of those unbeatable games for me when I was a child, and revisiting it now as an adult reminded me of the game’s quality while proving that the punishment the title once dealt my younger self was always fair. The final stage and boss fight really tested my abilities, even now, but once those end credits rolled I felt a wonderful sense of accomplishment. It’s great when a cherished game from your past confirms its value in the present, and I can wholeheartedly recommend seeking out a copy of Gremlins 2 so that you too can enjoy every challenging second of it.

Un buen juego sin duda, y una de las mejores adaptaciones de un film, que aporta nuevas escenas nunca mostradas en la peli.

The Retro Spirit (Mar 11, 2012)
Alt sett under ett er dette et av de hederlige unntakene hvor filmverdenen ikke behÞver Ä skjemme seg for lisensen over til spillverdenen. Det er en underfundig miks av ovenfra-og-ned skyteaction (dog med et litt forskrudd perspektiv til tider) med en god dose klassisk NES-plattforming og engasjerende bosskamper som absolutt kan anbefales. Gremlins 2: The New Batch holder riktignok til i den vanskelige NES-garderoben, men langt ifra umulig. Solide mengder trening, vÊske og tÄlmodighet er det som skal til. Bare husk Ä ikke fÄ vann pÄ Gizmo!

All in all, it's a bit lacking in gameplay, and there's about as much problem solving here as eating a trifle. No, I reckon the most outstanding feature of Gremlins 2 has to be the graphics - good cartoony-style characters, especially Gizmo who looks like he's just waddled off the film set. Some of the backgrounds are excellent too, with lots of smooth detail, even if it does get a little confusing sometimes. Gremlins 2 is a teasing game - your brain won't require much exercise, but your eyes and your right thumb will. Just look before you leap.

Play Time (Dec, 1991)
Grafik als auch Sound entsprechen dem ĂŒblichen Standard des NES. Besonders erwĂ€hnenswert ist vor allem die teilweise recht lange und gelungene Animation zwischen den Leveln. Da das Spielen stellenweise nicht gerade leicht ist, wirst Du sicher lĂ€ngere Zeit damit verbringen, bis Du es durchgespielt hast.

The presentation on this title is very fine, with above average graphics, sound/music, impressive boss sprites, and a few nice cutscenes to move the story along. Overall, Gizmo would approve!

I may have made fun of the game for not following the movie, but in the end, it's a very good thing. It doesn't try to stick to the plot and instead takes its own, much more enjoyable direction. My advice is to try it out...it's a very fun game, despite the nagging flaws that makes the game difficult.

Video Games (Sep, 1991)
Grobe Fehler findet man bei der NES-Umsetzung von Gremlins 2 nicht. Die Grafik ist hĂŒbsch, die Musik sehr witzig und eingĂ€ngig (typisch Sun Soft), das Spielprinzip eine bewĂ€hrte Mischung aus HĂŒpfen, Ballern und Extras einkaufen. Das ist zwar grundsolide, aber alles schon einmal dagewesen. Gremlins 2 ist eine ĂŒberdurchschnittliche Routineleistung; sichtbar in fiebriger Eile rund um den erfolgstrĂ€chtigen Film zusammenprogrammiert. Fans des Leinwandvorbilds werden nicht enttĂ€uscht sein, unbedingt haben mĂŒĂŸt Ihr das Modul nicht. Kurioserweise macht mir die grafisch schlichtere Game-Boy-Version mehr Spaß.

Retro Game Reviews (Jun 17, 2020)
Gremlins 2: The New Batch features above-average gameplay and some remarkable cut-scenes and music, but the rest of its offerings are rather insipid. The forgettable stage design is perhaps the worst offender and when coupled with the poor collision detection you're left with a game that's quite a chore to slog through.

Ao completar uma fase, vocĂȘ receberĂĄ uma password que darĂĄ acesso direto Ă quela sala. O jogo tem continue infinito.
