Awesome game...if it plays!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dungeon Keeper 2 (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
I LOVE this game, it's huge fun especially building your dungeon layout, controlling what creatures can enter your dungeon or be created like vampires (using the dead bodies from your enemy). It's also fun collecting gold and watching your creatures run around (or fly). Imps..... which are the most important creature in your dungeon as they build everything from corridors and rooms to installing traps, doors and repairing walls...they also dig up and collect gold BUT they can't fight so you need variation in the creatures you have.
The graphics are actually pretty good, certainly better than many games of the same age. Remember you view everything from a Birdseye view unless you use magic to take control of a creature in which case you view and control from their eyes. So the game is huge fun and there's lots of variation...both campaign and skirmish.
Now comes the bad news, on windows 7 64-bit the game will not run properly regardless of what setting i pick! The audio and graphics are particularly messed up with huge blocks of pink and purple pixels across the screen.
PROS: If the game works then you'll have a laugh and put thought into your dungeon layout, characters are awesome, dungeon keeper voice is cool
CONS: It doesn't work with Windows 7 64bit....or at least it doesn't on my machine, maybe more maps would be nice on the skirmish
VERDICT: It's a great old game for the PC, just be aware of the compatibility issues. These dungeon games are just different and that's why i like it
