Blood II: The Chosen Monolith / GT Interactive 1998

When you are risen from the dead as is Caleb, how can you hunt your dark enemies when you are one yourself? Brutality does not deter him. To say it differently: One must be brutal himself! Innocent passers-by or civilians are killed and leave hearts which give to our game figure again life. It uses the LithTech engine. There is a great variety of weapons as well as a greater number of different enemies than the previous game. The levels themselves are diverse as well. In the first chapter alone, you'll travel from an ornate museum to a huge science facility to the alleys of an ominous city street to a futuristic flying machine. The game sounds just as good, with funny wisecracks, great ambient sounds, and an appropriately dark, techno soundtrack. At first the degree of difficulty is rather low, however, it rises strongly after playing time of some hours I would say (in the flying fortress). As in the predecessor, the humor is also more subtle here again and rather appealing for horror fans, especially those with film knowledge. The sniper weapon is cool and for me it is one of a few games which also provide in the last level some creative fun (another dimension at the end is shown and it leaves you not frustrated and is cool). Indeed there are no innovations in the game itself but it is fun to play nevertheless.
