Turrican II is one of the best games I've played on the Spectrum. The excellently drawn and coloured graphics are a real treat and the vastness of the game will keep you busy for ages. If you enjoyed the first Turrican you'll be blown away by this one. Brilliant!
If you wipe out all the baddies in one section you'll have time for a breather before any others wander over to attack (and boy, will you need the breather!), and all in all they look great and move really well.
You'll probably have realised by now that I'm rather a fan of Turrican 2. It's a lot better than the first version (as well it should be, seeing as it's a couple of years on). The graphics have improved, and the sound's nearly up to Dolby standards (well, sort of). But best of all is that it's ridiculously playable and whoppingly huge! I'm going to be plugging away at it for a long time - and I'll be lucky if I can get through to the Machine in 6 months! If all this doesn't make it a Megagame then I'm an Icelandic fisherman named Susan. (Hiya Sue! Ed) Oh do be quiet Andy.
If you're a real platform shoot 'em up fan and you really want to spend £3.99, Turrican II is for you. It has more action you could ask for and more aliens than you could wish for.
