|You awaken after the festivities in which you indulged
after your adventures in the first game only to find that the sister
of the witch you killed is after revenge. Witchaven 2 is once again
a combination of RPG and shooter. You can use melee, ranged weapons
and magic spells. You gain experience through battling opponents. Compared
to the first Witchaven the graphics have improved (SVGA) and so has
the difficulty. If you liked the first game, this isn't a bad choice.
But, don't expect something revolutionary. It had some improvements
over the original game such as wielding two weapons, one in each hand.
In the game you collect silver, gold, and experience points, but there
does not appear to be any place that you can use these things. There
are nice lava flows, shaded dark corridors of walls, outdoor locations,
curved archways sloped floors, and ceilings, reflective water, stained
glass, large open air arenas, spiral staircases, and elaborate rooms all
beautifully done with intricate and interesting details, such as nails
on bridges suspended with chains. Unlike Witchaven, it came with the
Build level editor which meant that you were now able to create your
own levels for the game.
