  1. It's as good as a game like this can be -- the only negative is that we've seen it all before.

    Heavy Metal FAKK 2"will give you a good dose of fun while you're playing, although it is a bit short and there isn't any multiplayer to extend the game value.

    Quite possibly the best action-adventure game you're going to play this year.

    This one goes right back to the roots of hardcore action gaming. [Nov 2000, p.118]
  5. In-game cinematics, challenging puzzles, plenty of weapons, hordes of bad guys, sprawling landscapes, and beautiful women, what more could you want?

    A great game, and one that will keep you entertained for hours, the plot will keep you amused and the various weapons in the game will make for a great action adventure.
  7. A well-told story set on a lush planet with varied environments and a strong action heroin makes FAKK2 one of the best 3rd person action games around.
  8. Sexy, frantic, bloody and beautiful, but it falls a short of brilliance. Beats Lara hands down, though.
  9. The game is too darn short. Four or five additional levels would have helped to remedy this, but this isn’t enough to irreparably damage the game. It’s still a damn good title well worth taking for a spin.
  10. The music and graphics will blow you away, and the game is pretty fun as well.
  11. 84
    Minor quirks and the length keep it out of the 90s, but FAKK2 is definitely an entertaining single player experience.
  12. Definitely worth the $49.95 express ticket to Eden.
  13. FAKK 2 has a wonderful lead character in Julie Strain, and she's no doubt destined to overtake Lara Croft as the leading lady of gaming.

    It's worth playing, and will definitely give you ten or so hours of gameplay goodness -- but it may also give you ten or so hours of technical difficulty.
  15. It's a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless, and as action-adventures go you could certainly do worse.
  16. Finding better weapons and skimpier clothing is all rewarding enough to keep going, and hacking up big bad guys with even bigger weapons is entertaining.
  17. 80
    But it's very far from being bad, and in fact, I can't remember having such a good time grillin' and/or killin' in a while.
  18. If games like "Tomb Raider" are your thing, then you should enjoy this one. Although the action is similar, the enemies and storyline are more original. Overall, it's a fantastic game.
  19. Now if I can only find that "Nude Julie" patch everybody's been talking about.
  20. It has some of the most incredible graphics in a PC game thus far.
  21. The gameplay is highly addictive and includes some nice, new tricks; however, the game leaves you wanting more than is provided, and the lack of a multiplayer really hurts the replay value.
