Chaos Engine 2

Hi, i was checking some websites today and i saw prices of this game for the Amiga reached 40 pounds! (around 80$), is it really rare? and i've also checked some reviews but most gamers say that they liked the first one more.. any more info about this guys?




thx

And I liked it. It was not a typical sequel which for me was good.

The ECS version was released before the AGA version by weeks... if not longer I am sure.... but I could be mistaken.

This was a brave sequel - it would have been easy to churn out another Chaos Engine with just a few different levels and added features... what a shame they didn't do just that...

@Peter

Indeed keep the original game and AGA graphics and add a nice 3 or 4 player game mode and to add real style an 8 player null modem playmode too thats what it should of been about...

Chaos Engine 2: The Facture of Time OR The Infernal Machine

hell heres an easy plot...

engine/brain manages to inseed itself at the last mminute in the past...

as our hero's rejoice at the destruction of the engine, little did they know that quantum realities began sprining up all over the plannet... (and under the water for some extra cool levels with like victorian subs!!! sweet)

anyway our heros have to find a professor (hence first level) that can predict quantum time windows so our heros can go back and beat the infernal machine down!

damn its begining to sound soooooo good i want to play it now!!!!

Its a good game no doubt, its very polished and they obviously put a lot of effort into producing it though i think the first chaos engine is a bit better.

TBH

CE2 is poor, infact... lets start with the graphics... WTF is up with that? they should of stuck to steam-punk / joules vern-esque Victorian era type.

theres very few redeeming features of CE2. i was far from impressed.


CE AGA version damn sublime!

Chaos Engine 2 took everything that was good about Chaos Engine and binned it!

It's such a dull, lifeless game, and it's frankly boring to play!
