    This game is not as bad as many would lead you to believe. the levels are somewhat confusing, but anyone with sense can consult the map, and use the compass. the melee attacks are not horrible unless you use the mage Arran. Anyone else who owns this game help me unlock new areas please.

    Let it be known that I hated the first Nightcaster. But even though this sequel is MUCH better than the first one, it still has its flaws.

    Much more action-packed than the first, however, more undeveloped. This game could have been the best Gauntlet-like game available had more time been put into it. I think overall, it took 4-5 hours to beat.

    A much more enjoyable, involving game than its predecessor. [Feb 2003, p.80]

    Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this one or there's a good chance that your Xbox will come to life, beat you to a bloody pulp, and steal all of your valued possessions. [Feb 2003, p.105]
