ActRaiser 2


sgm0113 - Developed by Quintet Co., Ltd. and Published by Enix America Corporation, "ActRaiser 2" was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in November of 1993. This is the sequel to the first SNES game, a 3rd person perspective, side-scrolling platformer game that retains the beautiful collage of action, great music and masterful visuals while jettisoning the societal development. The first Actraiser took many gamers by surprise with its state-of-the art presentation and strange and intriguing gameplay, so it's not surprising that the sequel also makes the A list of SNES games. ActRaiser 2 retains the religious overtones as the first offering as you again play the roll of our hero called, "The Master," who is a deity spirit (who now has a full set of functional wings) who is sent to remove the evil that is gripping the land. In this sequel to ActRaiser 1, there is no top-down, as it is strictly a side-scrolling action simulator that expands upon the action sequences of the original into 14 great levels. With just the side scrolling, it is much more advanced in that area than its predecessor. There are a lot of new things in this updated version, which include new monsters, abilities, powers and no battery save function this time. The save is accomplished by a password save mode. Also, ActRaiser 2 has eliminated all the village-building courses. It also features a new musical score by famed musician Yuzo Koshiro that will not disappoint. You can glide, dive, swing your mighty sword in four directions as well as summon a variety of powerful magical attacks. The music remains some of the best for the SNES and the graphics (which were great in the original) have been upgraded, with beautifully designed, lush, detailed environments and backgrounds. Whether the locations are of forests or swamps and hills, they are all done beautifully with goods sprites and animation. You will glory in the unique and clever battles with Bosses like the Beast with a zillion eyes and the Grim Reaper who could be right out of hades. Just outstanding quality here. The gameplay and player controls are top notch as well, albeit lifting an already difficulty level to higher ground. All in all, though not as good as the first (in my humble opinion), this is a really good game and a must have addition for your Classic SNES collection. This game is also known as ActRaiser II, and in Japan, as ActRaiser 2: Chinmoku e no Seisen (The Crusade for Silence). Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included. Rarity Rating "B". ActRaiser 2 game review by Prince NES Gamer.
