  1. It's pretty good for a quick handheld FPS fix, but to ask anything else of it would be insane.
  2. 70
    It's creepy, mysterious, and spooky, and while it isn't perfect by any means, it's a horror experience well worth your time.
  3. To put it bluntly, Dementium II represents one of the better survival horror experiences on a system not known for its support of the genre.
  4. In the end, the question of whether to give Dementium II a shot is a simple one. Do you want to play a survival horror game on the DS? If the answer is yes, this is the best place to go. If not, this is a good game, but not a must-buy.
  5. Dementium II spins an interesting, albeit simple, horror narrative on the DS. It's unlike anything else on the hardware and is a perfect example of stylus use done right. It's held back by a few half baked ideas, easy enemies and some questionable sound design, but still delivers a compelling, bite size horror experience.
  6. It may not explore much new territory in the horror genre, but what's here is one of the best small-scale chillers that's been turned out in quite a while.
  7. Dementium II is a decent game with lots of interesting elements combined with a surprising amount of impressive technology, but sadly it just comes together in a very bland, uninspired way.
  8. Dementium II is a great step forward for the FPS genre on the DS. The controls are perfect and the graphics and framerate are spot on.
  9. Dementium II is like a high-school cover band doing a Silent Hill tribute show: There's talent behind the work, but it's still incompetent.

    For a Nintendo DS game Dementium 2 is really amazing. The graphics are way over the average and the controls are running smooth with 60 frameFor a Nintendo DS game Dementium 2 is really amazing. The graphics are way over the average and the controls are running smooth with 60 frame per second. The short - stunning - experience is only clouded by the short amount of the time until the credits roll up the screen as well as the open ending. Full Review »

Renegade Kid has done one of the most interesting game of the Nintendo DS library. Scary, emotional, and a lot of stuff. A great story, great locations, great atmosphere. Seriously, this is better than Silent Hill 3, but not than the first and the second. This is phychological horror, and this is scary... not Resident Evil 5 ... Full Review »
