Product Description

Expanding upon the action sequences of the original while shedding the simulation portion, ActRaiser 2 places you in control of a winged warrior who can glide, dive, swing his sword in any direction, and summon a variety of powerful magical attacks. Magic is now situation-specific and limited to certain actions, such as summoning the fire of a Phoenix to reinforce a diving attack. Graphics have been overhauled, with lush, detailed environments ranging from the depths of an anthill to a swampy forest, while the epic, orchestrated music has remained intact. Unfortunately, the clumsy control boosts the already high difficulty to insane proportions.

If you loved Actraiser, you should like Actraiser II. Don't get me wrong it is a terrific game in its own right, but Actraiser was a very hard act to follow. If you never played Actraiser it was really two games in one. There was the simulation part (ala Populous and/or SimCity), and the action part (a side scrolling hack and slash type game). You had to save the citys that you built from different monsters that threatened them. Both play aspects made for a unique game I haven't seen the likes of since.
Actraiser II kept the action part of the game and made it so much better, but ditched the simulation part. I remember people at the time this game came out were very upset about this and I still am when I think about it. Actraiser II could have been such a better game if they kept the simulation.
OK, now that I have gone on and on about what the game doesn't have, let me tell you about what it does have: You start the game with 20 HP, 3 sources of magic, and your full assortment of every type of magic to begin with, but nothing changes with your character throughout the entire game: sword, armor, etc. the only thing you can build up are sources of magic, and those reset whenever you leave the monster lair. I'll be honest this game is hard, even on the easy level. The hard level is almost impossible (you could wear out your sword swinging button). The game is worth it, with a nice story line, beautifully rendered backgrounds, and great music, this is a very good side scrolling hack and slash game. Your character (the Master) looks very cool, complete with a sword, a shield (that can deflect some attacks), and wings. Yes you can fly, well I would call it gliding down slowly.

This is a classic for sure, some say it's actually a prequel to the first game, but I say nah, it just doesn't add up. The plotline is basically that "The Master" (God in the Japanese version) defeated Tanzra (Satan in the Japanese version) and cast him down into the underworld. Using their hatred, the seven deadly sins brought Tanzra/Satan back to life, now he is out for revenge and so are the seven deadly sins and their cohorts. Not a whole lot of story to go on in this game, but that's fine. You don't play an action game for the story, you play it for the gameplay.

That said, if you played the first ActRaiser, expect a completely different beast here. For one, the simulation aspects from the first game have been completely removed. So basically you're flying from one level to the next somewhat similar to Professional Mode from the first ActRaiser. However, in its place is a game that has even better graphics than the original. If you thought the first game looked good, you ain't seen nothin' yet until you've seen this game in action. I recall there being 14 levels in the game overall, each divided into two acts, both levels from that act have the same piece of music for it. All of these stages were also colorful too, running the gamut from green forests with huge mushrooms and trees, a sunken city underneath the sea, war torn battlefields, the innards of a rumbling volcano and one stage that used Mode 7 to great effect in warping what looked to be the innards of what could only be one's twisted dream. A dungeon loaded with spikes followed by a palace decked in gold, all culminating in the final act where you climb a nightmarish, high-tech looking tower to confront a false deity before descending into hell (Death Heim in the US version) itself to take on Tanzra.

I usually break down every game that I review from story to sound to controls and yada yada. This game will not require such a breakdown being an old school SNES plat-former in the vein of a really bad Castlevania. Allow me to be more specific as I mentioned in the title that the controls are terrible. By terrible I don't mean if you press forward the character moves backward, of course not. If you press forward your character will move forward, and if you press attack he will attack. The problem is when you move him forward he sluggishly moves forward as he doesn't seem to be a very motivated statue possessed by a god. I would have liked the flight mechanic much more if they utilized it more in the style of Demon's Crest. The problem might have been that this game came out before Demon's Crest, so didn't have much influencing it in that department. You don't really fly with those wings, but rather glide. And you usually glide right into fifty enemies attacking you at once causing the game to slow down significantly. Or you usually end up missing a platform as a result that even if you do end up landing on your character has to cartoonishly put on the brakes the second he lands and slides forward a bit. The enemies respawn especially at the most inconvenient moments, and at times they even respawn right where you're standing so there's no way you can avoid them at times. I know people like a challenge to their gameplay, but there's the difference between a legit challenge and just plain cheap deaths. If you want a legit challenge save another $15 and get Castlevania IV if you don't already have it. I know someone is going to find this review unhelpful just for the fact that's it a negative review. There are some praiseworthy elements in this game, such as the visuals.Read more ›
