5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless classic, 2 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Dungeon Keeper 2 (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Another gem from the now sadly defunct Bullfrog Studios.
Much better graphics than the original, but less challenging to complete and somehwhat less compelling - although still streets ahead of most other games
In essence, the game follows a basic RTS game format - collect resources, build armies, explore terrain, crush your enemy's base...
But it is in the finer points of detail in the gameplay that set it apart from anything else on the market - units are not trained in barracks, but have to be attracted to your cause: Warlocks want libraries to research spells, Bile Demons like a decent supply of chickens, and the Mistress demands a fully functioning torture chamber in which to indulge her, err, more personal pleasures. The whole action of the game takes place under the earth, and your Imps burrow through the ground to reach new areas; if they don't work quickly enough for you, just give them a slap and they will soon jump to it.
The defining aspect of the game is the gorgeous, dark humour. There are few things funnier in a PC game that seeing your Goblins, Skeletons and Dark Angels boogey on down to the beats of 'Disco Inferno', played whenever one of your minions is lucky enough to hit the jackpot in the casino.

I haven't played DK2 for many years now and I had forgotten about giving lazy imps a slap or having vast areas devoted to chickens for feeding the bile demons until I saw your witty review.
