With the same flare as the first , except with a lot less evil, Dungeon Keeper 2 exceeds most people expectations.

User Rating: 8.5 | Dungeon Keeper 2 (Classic) PC
Most people would have heard of Dungeon Keeper 2 and become excited, of course taking that they had played the first in the Dungeon Keeper series, which was severely underplayed as it was.

Dungeon Keeper 2 throws you into a world of minions, mining and heroes as you create your own underworld masterpiece, slaying heroes as you go. This is done by gathering minions, who appear through a claimed portal to use the rooms that you provide.

A pro about Dungeon Keeper 2 is the minion animation, it is far surpassing the first game's animation quality, but it doesn't really keep what mood was so well established in the first game.

As you traverse the underground, you will come across minions such as Warlocks, Skeletons and Dark Angels, all there to serve your every order and do whatever possible to acheive your goal.

You cannot attract minions however, without using rooms to lure them towards your dungeon in the first place. Build rooms such as Lairs, where they can sleep, Hatcheries, where they can 'fill their bellies full of juicy chicken flesh', and the torture chambers, where captured opposition members can be interrogated and converted.

The voice-over differs only slightly from the original game, and a lot more humour is used to break the ice at any point within a battle.

As there are pros, so there are cons, one being that when one of your creatures wins the jackpot at one of your Casinos, they start doing a stupid jig to 'Disco Inferno' for a few minutes, and if you are middle battle, then you are more or less in big trouble, because as your minions don't do anything but dance for a few minutes, enemies can move right past, and your minion's will be physically incapable of attack or defending.

Dungeon Keeper 2 offers a lot of entertainment for as long as you want to play it, with each new level introducing new spells, rooms, minions or missions. It does not move past it's predecessor when quality is concerned, but there is still plenty of fun to be had.
