Hum well, Beast 2 is a really hard game, but you can finish it like Beast 1.
I know that they have an average maniability but it's up to the player to compensate
Beast 1 and 2 are quite of what we can decently call 'pre-scripted games' where every enemy appears always at the same place.... So it appears to be quite easy to get thru the traps disseminated thru the levels and even then take care of the life points.
Same appears too for Jim Power, an easy one to finish even if you lose some lives....
