MDK 2

FEATURED MDK 2

Playing MDK2 is like riding a roller coaster or watching a good action movie. In fact, fighting aliens has never been this much fun.

You begin the adventure as Kurt, a human in a Batman-like suit equipped with some loopy but lethal accessories. Kurt packs a powerful chain gun and a built-in parachute for gliding around levels. Kurt also has access to a simple-to-use sniper mode that allows you to smoothly zoom between multiple magnification levels (1x to 75x) for long-range kills. As the game progresses, you’ll eventually be able to control Kurt’s six-legged dog, Max. This is no ordinary housebroken pet. This not-so-cuddly creature can carry up to four guns at once for immense firepower. In addition, Max uses a jetpack to fly around (à la Boba Fett of Star Wars fame). Finally, there is Dr. Hawkins, who uses his scientific skills to combine common household objects into weapons of mass destruction. The diversity (and strangeness) of these characters adds a unique twist to the otherwise conventional gameplay.

Most of the environments you’ll encounter in MDK2 are rendered in dark colors–perfectly suited for showing off the game’s outstanding lighting effects. The graphics overall are crisp, incredibly detailed, and brimming with personality. Numerous cut-scenes are rendered using the game’s 3-D engine, which lends much drama (not to mention comedy) to the storyline. This is one of those rare games that is as fun to watch as it is to play, and it belongs in the library of any action fan with a Dreamcast. –T. Byrl Baker

    THIS is the DC’s Best Game, April 30, 2001

    Soul Calibur is fantastic. Jet Grind Radio is innovative. Metropolis Street Racer is addictive. However, looking back now that the DC is fading away, MDK2 is the system’s best game.

    Why didn’t more people buy it?

    The visuals are unmatched in console gaming. Even the PS2 version of MDK2 is graphically inferior. The sequence where Kurt must glide from platform to platform is absolutely jaw-dropping…and that’s on the FIRST LEVEL. The alien city of Swizzle Firma looks like it was taken straight out of The Fifth Element — vehicles buzz everywhere with no looping or random placement. Everything, from the glowing tip of Max’s cigar to Shwang Shwing’s snail-like spacecraft, is rendered with meticulous attention to detail and loving care.

    Forget Gunbird 2 and Bangai-O. Good games in their own right, yes, but they can’t compare to MDK2’s challenge. This is the Ultimate Hardcore Game. Climbing the tower with Max’s jetpack on level 8 or diffusing the bombs as Doc Hawkins on level 6 will take any gamer a loooong time to complete. But the game always rewards your efforts by taking you to another fantastic environment and presenting a task that is guaranteed to raise your blood pressure. The feeling of victory and accomplishment when successfully navigating these challenges is what gaming is all about.

    As games become more mainstream, they are becoming easier in order to recruit more fans. A major tip of the hat to BioWare for crafting the first visually stunning 3D game that retains the challenge of 2D games of the past. The PS2 version of MDK2 contains helpful hints (like Big Red Arrows saying SHOOT HERE) that make the game less than what it’s intended to be — really a shame.

    The ONLY negative comment I have about MDK2 is that the levels with Kurt are slightly more creative and fun than the Max and Doc levels. I think that if MDK2 had been 10 levels of Kurt, it would have easily been my Favorite Game of All Time. Still, the Top Three isn’t bad….control, visuals, audio, even the ludicrous story are all some of the best in the industry.

    MDK2 is a gorgeous, genius mix of reflex-driven action and brain-numbing puzzles that no gamer should pass up.

    Modern game developers are ever-trying to find something new to create… and while even some of those rehashed games can be very fun, MDK2 offers something that is wildly original (though you wouldn’t guess it by the title) and remarkably enjoyable. The controls take a while to get used to but after an hour or so, they feel natural, like you’re not even using the bulky Sega controller. If you have money to blow, I highly suggest this game. Though I was a bit put out that Shiny isn’t actually doing the game, I feel good about Bioware now that I’ve seen what a remarkable job they’ve done. The game allows you to control one of three charachters in their own levels. But their stories are interconnected so when one person wins a level, another charachter will have to take over. The game is just plain funny, and not just eye-rolling or bad-translation funny, the things you often have to do or that happen to you is hillarious. In short, buy it.

    The best, most original game in years, April 28, 2000

    This review is from: MDK 2 (Video Game)

    I’m a very old school video gamer. I love games like Kings quest and Space quest. I also enjoy 007, but games like that loose their interest fast. MDK2 is a wonderful video game. It rates five stars in every catagory. Control, Sound, Graphics, Re-play value, and Story line. The controls are wondreful, I’ve read regviews that they were to flawed and hard to handle, but it is so smoothly done, it’s like yourf there. The sound is great, it fits the character, Max has an awsome Matrix-like soundtrack. If you use headphones, you can hear every little thing, the music, your character, the enemys, generaters, whatever. The graphics really take advantage of the system. They are very detailed, down to the inscriptions and patters on the floor, it makes you feel like your there. I don’t get tired of the action, and I certainly don’t get tired of the video sequences. The game is diveded up so you can go to bassically any paoint in the game you want to play again, the video sequences are all accesible in the main screen. It’s witty and cool, and anyone who says different, just didn’t pay attention.
