The sequel to the computer game Heretic continues the first-person fantasy combat that distinguished its predecessor. Instead of guiding a lone protagonist, you can now choose from three distinct characters: a fighter, cleric, or mage. Each character possesses special abilities and is individually rated in four attributes: speed, armor, magic, and strength. Characters can acquire up to four class-specific weapons to use against an assortment of evil creatures. In addition to the melee- and projectile-based combat, the game features several puzzles and traps to overcome or avoid.
You'll witness poison darts, spikes, crushing walls, collapsing bridges, earthquakes, bottomless pits, and other dangers while activating switches or finding keys to trigger events. Locate ancient artifacts to imbue your character with new powers. The single-player adventure spans five episodes, each comprised of multiple levels linked together by "hubs." The Nintendo 64 version also includes multiplayer support via split-screen display. Up to four players can compete in a deathmatch, or two players can fight evil together in the cooperative mode. A Controller Pak with 90 free pages is required to save progress. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
