Dungeon Keeper 2

Published by Sold Out Software
Developed by Bullfrog
Platform: PC CD-ROM
Released - Out Now
Price : £4.99

Bullfrog have always been known for their unusual strategy games and the Dungeon Keeper series was one of their best. Whilst this sequel was as good as the original game it's still great fun to play and even today is well worth buying if you never played it at the time of it's original release.

Basically you have to construct an underground citadel and provide the right facilities for all sorts of hellish creatures that will in return do your bidding to bring down all manner of goodie, goodie heroes. As well as the campaign you have stand-alone missions and multiplayer games available. It's all good fun but it does get repetitive, especially in the single player gamer. Nevertheless it's one of the more original games out there and if you fancy controlling vampires and imps then this could be your thing. Graphically it still stands up well against todays games.

Dungeon Keeper 2 is fine for deaf gamers. The cutscenes are subtitled and verbal messages you receive appear as text messages, indicated by flashing 'i' icon at the bottom of the screen. These messages can be read in your own time too which is always a bonus.

Recommendation: Well worth a purchase if you like games that are unusual. It's not as good as the original Dungeon Keeper but it comes pretty close.

Suitability for deaf gamers: No problems at all. Cutscenes are subtitled and other speech can be read by clicking on the flashing 'i' icon that appears at the bottom of the screen.

Overall Game Rating: 4.0/5
