Amazon.com Review

A hero's work is simply never done. After defeating the evil Serpent Rider D'Sparil in the original Heretic, Corvus the Sidhe Elf finds nothing but death and disease in his homeland. Now, he must rid the world of a great plague before settling back into his "regular" life. Brady's guide to Heretic II will help you track down the cause of this evil plague and help you fight your way through the legions of beasties who happen to like the world disease-ridden and downtrodden. You'll find a complete walk-through for each of the game's 23 levels. There are no maps, but the continuous flow of screenshots should help you get your bearings in the game world. The book also includes a short section explaining the new look and feel of the game (which is third person, not first person), a thorough bestiary, and a brief discussion of multiplayer basics.

It's a curious thing that most people here seem to rate the game and not the book.

Short story - the book is good, just the sort of high quality stuff usually delivered by bradygames. Detailed enemy, weapon and item descriptions can be found early on, and an extensive walkthrough takes up the rest of the book.

The walkthrough is well organized, with plenty of screenshots and hints to help you through the game. There are no actual maps, but the screenshots are enough to help you orient yourself.

The book looks great, is well written, well designed and helpful should you get stuck in Heretic 2.

This game was excellent. The story line was rich, the manual was comprehensive, the sound was sharp and varied, and the levels were rich and full of logic puzzles and combat. The combat included all kinds of acrobatic manuevers, and several blade attacks. Also, Corvus, the hero, swims, climbs, rolls, ducks, jummps, flips, and slashes. There are a huge number of offensive and defensive spells, as well as a large number of enemies to fight. The cooperative multiplayer is awesome, and the deathmatch is also, good, although you can't add computer characters in deathmatch. Only two complainst. First, the game is too short, and second, the graphics are a little crude. In any case, the smooth transitions, great videos, and detailed environments compensate for the graphics, and for the average gamer the game is long enough. Overall, this was one of the best games that I've ever played, and is orderso of magnitude better than heretic I.

One of the best of the undiscovered Quake II engines, they have put together an awesome game. I couldn't let it go with the slam. The game is enthralling, thought provoking Action Adventure with good puzzles and game play. Published around the same time as Half-life it shows what different could be done with some imagination

Ok, I haven't read the book. Bought the game, Heretic II. (Loved Heretic and Hexen) Heretic II is so changed it's not the same at all. Instead of being the hand as point of reference, holding whatever weapon you have, you now must manipulate a little elf guy who moves very clunkily. Oh yes, now we get movies along with an annoying loud musical sound track, but there is no familiar map showing where you've been and haven't been. Instead there is one picture that looks like a clumsy drawing by a child and you are supposed to figure out what room you are in. It is also complicated to make the elf move. It was so tedious and boring that I took the game back. Two calloused thumbs down!
