Reviewed by Jeremy Peeples Earthworm Jim 2 was released for the Sega Genesis in the middle of 1995 by Shiny Entertainment. Another version of the game was also made for the Super Nintendo and Sega Saturn. Graphics-10/10- Just like the original, the characters are of a good stature, they all have an original look and have excellent animation. The animation must be seen to be believed, it's some of the smoothest ever seen in a video game in my opinion. Nice grahical touches like flying grizzle coming off the grill in the grill sub-level round out rhe excellent graphics. Pros- Super-smooth animation and nice graphical touches help make the graphics one of the game's best features. Cons- None Sound-8/10- Much like the original, the music is great, ot fits the stages perfectly, it's not as good as the original, but it's still good. The sound effects are excellent, each one is crystal clear and fits in with the on-screen action perfectly. Pros- The music is great, as are the sound effects. Cons- The music isn't as good as the original. Gameplay-8/10- Almost identical to the first game, that's not a bad thing though, many of the endearing qualities of the original are retained and most of them improved upon. It's too bad they didn't add much in the way of new moves, but they did add a lot of variety to the levels (for example,the grill level) so it balances out nicely. Pros- Everything you loved from the original has been retained. Cons- Unfortunately, not much has been added. Control-9/10- Just like the original, perfect in almost every way imaginable, the only problem being that of swinging from one area to the next, it's a little choppy in that respect, but it's perfect in every other. Pros- It's very responsive in most areas. Cons- Except the swinging areas. Presentation-8/10- Excellent, everything is vibrant and alive, from the title screen to teh death scenes, it's all great, it's too much like the original though. Replay Value-5/10- There's nothing left to accomplish after you've beaten it, the only thing you really could do is try to beat you old score. It's the game's fatal flaw. Overall-8/10- The graphics are superb, as is the sound, the control is, for the most part, perfect. If you liked the original, buy this game, you won't regret it. For Nomad Owners- The game works great, the great graphics, sound and controls are all retained perfectly. Overall, another excellent game for Nomad owners. Rent or Buy?-Buy- Not many places rent Sega Genesis games anymore, but this game shouldn't cost more than $15, it's a great game at any price and deserves to be played at least once by all gamers.
