DK2 is nothing compared to DK1

bydefinition May 24, 2004
19 Helpfuls 20 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Cheap as chips
Cons Totally inferior to its predecessor, Dungeon Keeper 1
Recommended it? No

In this review I'll mainly be contrasting DK2 with DK1 to highlight how terrible it is in comparison. There are plenty of reviews telling you exactly what DK 1 and 2 are about so if you don't know then read them. However I believe this is the only review making such a detailed analysis of the...

Pros Nice graphics, complex enough to stay interesting
Cons Devil in the details - bad micromanagement can be a killer
Recommended it? Yes

I was very excited to hear that this game was being made. I greatly enjoyed the first dungeon keeper, and thought that if they kept the play the same, this could only improve upon it. What I was surprised to find was that with apparently minor adjustments, they've changed a good portion of the... Read full review »

Pros Fun to be evil, great graphics, fun gameplay, easy to learn, freedom to be bad
Cons Little buggy, doesnt play on Windows ME
Recommended it? Yes

You are the supreme being in this game (Do I have a god complex? See my review of Black & White) You are an EVIL ruler of the underworld, and your mission is to build up your dungeons, and CRUSH the light dwellers to gain control of the world! Muwahahaha! How can you NOT like this game?

Turning RTS dungeon crawl upside down

bykschang Apr 30, 2001
8 Helpfuls 9 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros A completely different perspective, both real-time-strategy and first-person
Cons The hands-off approach is sometimes frustrating, mature theme not for kids
Recommended it? Yes

DK2 is a true genre-bender that manages to improve upon the original genre-bending game that allows you to play the BAD side. I have not played the original, but the sequel is definitely a very interesting challenge.

You are a dungeon keeper in the service of the Horned Reaper (i.e... Read full review »

Pros deliciously evil wit, creativity, decent graphics and sound
Cons limited replayability once the scenarios are completed
Recommended it? Yes

The game's premise: you are the overlord of a subterranean dungeon, who must attract minions and keep them happy, collect gold and jewels, and destroy the poor deluded heroes who happen to wander too near. Occasionally rival dungeon keepers make the mistake of infringing on your rightful territory,... Read full review »

Pros Innovative concept, well done graphics and sound (considering when the game came out)
Cons Frustrating control, feels more like SimDungeon than anything else...
Recommended it? Yes

So I've been visiting the bargain bin at my local game store, and my girlfriend and I came across Dungeon Keeper 2 for $10. I'd heard it was good, and we both were interested, so we picked it up. At worst, we only wasted $10.

The basic idea of Dungeon Keeper 2 is pretty much Diablo in... Read full review »

I just purchased " Dungeon Keeper 2". Its a classic game that you can now find for $10.00 if you know where to look.(WAL-MART)

It's good to be bad. What a quote from Bullfrog.
Well, the first time I played DK1, it was far back to 1997 during uni day. It was really a cool game, and it keep me for few weeks. And after another expansion set released, I played DK again, and it was tougher and tougher to complete. As far... Read full review »

Recommended it? Yes

This is a great game, but it is hard at times. For example, there are only a certain number of portals, and you cannot build guys like in other strategy games. Instead, you let the portals attract guys by building other buildings that the creatures like. This is a new way of playing, and it could... Read full review »

Pros Humorous, solid game play
Cons Sometimes a little easy
Recommended it? Yes

When the game told me to get some sleep the other night, I laughed out loud (and took the advice). I had wondered about the message an hour earlier that said that the fluffy cushion in the other room provides recuperative properties. Is that some magical item that I missed? Oh, my bed, I see.

There is a large population of people out there who like cute things.

We had anxiously awaited the release of Dungeon Keeper 2 after having bought the original Dungeon Keeper _used_, no less, for $10 at a computer store. It's turned out to be one of the most fun games we've ever owned.

If you like a game with a sly sense of humor that is wickedly fun, you should try Dungeon Keeper 2. You will take on the role of the evil Dungeon Keeper that tries to destroy the simpering goody-goody heroes by commanding your minions. You dig out the dungeon, build a wide variety of rooms...

Pros Fun, and a bit different
Cons Exactly the same as DK1
Recommended it? No

When the original Dungeon Keeper was announced, it was to be a breath of fresh air to the role-playing genre. You get to control the bad guys, and kill the heroes, how cool! It didn't happen, because somewhere along the line, it turned into more of a strategy game. So it became a breath of fresh... Read full review »

When I got the first Dungeon keeper I was overjoyed. Finally a chance to play the bad guy instead of the cheesy good. I played it often, maybe once every two days. Then I heard that a second Dungeon Keeper was coming out, and I couldn't wait to order it. When I finally got it loaded onto my... Read full review »

Pros Unique perspective; nice graphics and sound; fun gameplay
Cons Crashes a little too frequently; AI could be better
Recommended it? Yes

Dungeon Keeper 2 is a fantastic game, in large part because it occupies its own little niche in the computer gaming world: the role of evil. Have you ever gotten a little fed up with the shining paragons that many game heroes tend to be? Does it ever appeal to you to strike a blow in the name of... Read full review »
