- Animated violence, blood and gore

For Those Who Want More Than Adventure!

Welcome to a world of magic, of traps and danger, of graphical glory and fast, fiendish gameplay. Your desperate struggle against the forces of chaos will pit you against a relentless enemy onslaught; you'll need wits, cunning and expert swordmanship to defeat the evil nemeses. Let's hope you don't pass out at the sight of blood.

Using unique Ellipsoid technology, Ecstatica II places you in a vast gaming world that'll keep you in its spell for a long, long time. With over 1100 camera views, superbly animated characters and a huge array of magic weapons, this is an exceptional action adventure from one of the most creative teams around.

Incredible landscapes with hundreds of rooms to explore, mysterious puzzles and vicious hand-to-hand combat.

Your impresive armory includes 8 deadly weapons and 2 mysterious wands.

With over 60 different breeds of creature baying for your blood, this game packs all the dark, brooding atmosphere of approaching evil.

Gorgeously animated ellipsoid characters afford more realistic character movements than polygons.

Requirements:

MS-DOS 5.0/Windows 95, P60 (P133 recommended), 16Mb RAM, 40Mb free hard drive space, 640x480/320x200, all major soundcards (SoundBlaster compatible recommended), 2x CD-ROM drive or faster.

Reviews:

Quandary Computer Game Reviews by Gordon Aplin (August 1997)

"Ecstatica II has a significantly larger game world than the original and the gameplay is more extended and varied, but in the end the puzzles are still largely limited to finding ways to open doors. Mind you, with all the incessant combat that's about as much as you are able to handle. The elements borrowed from the role-playing genre significantly improved this game for me, but I couldn't help wishing that an RPG's auto-mapping feature had also been provided.

"The graphics are excellent (you really must play it in high resolution, though a low resolution option is offered) and your ellipsoid character's movement is extremely fluid. The shifting perspective really adds to the atmosphere -- close up and claustrophobic in narrow stair wells and dizzying from the heights of the tall towers. Sound effects too play an enormous part here. From eerie moans to the neighing of frightened horses the background sounds rarely cease and the explosion of thunder as I reached the top of a tower nearly knocked me out of my seat.

"This game sits firmly in the action adventure category and is sure to present a challenge even to those who revel in the cut and thrust of real-time combat action. I know that some players may disagree with my assessment, but I think that Ecstatica II is far more enjoyable than the original."
