The year of Cheese has arrived and with it, the advent of the Comet of Infinite Possibilities as foretold by the great prophet, Nosewasinit. The young sorceress Nikki decides it would be much easier to steal the source of the comet’s power instead of devoting herself to dull and dreary studies. Along with her friend Fargus and his sidekick Sid (who really knows how to stick around), the trio goes off to find the comet. They won’t be the only ones racing for the comet as the evil Goon Queen has set her sights on the comet as well. The race for power is on!
Featuring 2.5D platforming gameplay, Pandemonium 2 offers more bang for your buck. Choose between either Nikki or Fargus for each level as each has their set of abilities that you can use. Nikki is more agile and can jump higher while Fargus wields his puppet Sid with deadly efficiency. Acquire power-ups, such as lightning or fireballs, collect tons of treasure, and even take control of a tank all the while wreaking pandemonium in this colorful and crazy platformer adventure!
Minimum system requirements: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8, 1.8 GHz Processor, 512MB RAM (1 GB recommended), 3D graphics card compatible with DirectX 7 (compatible with DirectX 9.0c recommended), 1GB HDD, Mouse, Keyboard.

Pandemonium 2 offers two characters to choose from: ultravixen, scantily-clad Nikki, and Fargus, an insane, dim-witted jester who has his own talking stick named Sid (for you Juff Dunham fans, think Jose Jalepeno On A Stick, but with the personality of Walter) that he can throw at enemies. The plot is to get to the Comet of Infinite Possibilities (each character has their ownread more reasons for doing so). Gameplay is pretty simple. You're on a linear track, similar in style to the Crash Bandicoot games, but from a side perspective. Instead of fruit for extra lives, you're collecting coins ("treasure"). Levels are multi-tiered, in that there will often be many places above and/or below you to explore. Enemies may be bounced upon, Mario-style and, as expected, power-ups are present. The colors are vibrant, and the levels are creative and pretty large and offer variety, as do their bosses, which often involve utilizing new techniques to beat. Many times in my first run-through I thought I had explored everywhere possible, only to find I had a less than %50 treasure found ratio!
As the gameplay is standard for the genre, so are the problems: awkward camera angles, blind jumps, and a few confusing pathways. However, these don't occur too often, and don't take away from what is a pretty underrated and enjoyable game. It's worth the asking price if you're into good, old-school 3D platformers; all else should definitely consider picking it up when it's on sale.

Back in the day I bought Pandemonium for the Sega Saturn and finished the game quickly. Then I bought Pandemonium 2 for the PSX (or PS1) as it wasn't made for the Saturn. The Playstation game had way better graphics than the Saturn version. In fact before seeing this was released on GOG for the PC I was making ISO's of all my Playstation games and was playing this on my computerread more a couple of hours ago. I love both games equally but especially love the two characters and their edgier animation in Pandemonium 2. I highly recommend both games but would suggest you play them with a wireless XBOX 360 controller. It makes them play so smooth when hooked into your PC.

This sequel greatly improves everything that made the first one great. From the brilliantly-crafted soundtrack to the beautifully made levels. The characters are back with more attitude and new attacks. After playing it to death on the PS1, it remains my favourite. A definite gem that everyone should experience.
