The NES sequel to Hudson's popular Adventure Island is coming this fall. There are eight new islands to explore with much more of the same which we enjoyed in the first version. Break the large eggs for the bonus items, hop on the skateboard, throw a few hammers and jump up to get the fruit for energy. The hidden bonus levels and the famous hudson bee are back as are all of the nasty creatures that stand in between you and the princess.

7.0

Adventure Island was a completely excellent multi-round action/adven-ture and the sequel not only lives up to this high level of quality, it actually surpasses it. Adventure 2 throws in all types of new objects to interact with, expanding the scope of the first game and delivering plenty of fun!

6.0

Hudson has the right idea - take a good adventure game and make it better in the sequel. It is longer than the first and you'll get your money's worth out of this one. A good variety of levels and backgrounds. I like the cute dinosaurs you get to ride.

7.0

Adventure Island 2 is really cool. A big step up from part one! It features a whole new quest, bigger than before and large boss creatures that differ rather than just change heads. The dino powe-ups are really neat and flying a pterodactyl is a lot cooler than riding a skateboard. Great play!

7.0

If you're a fan of the first Adventure Island, then you're sure to like this one. It has great graphics, and the game play is smooth. The new power ups are great, along with some interesting new items. If you hated the skateboard you'll love the new dino buddies.

If it weren't for SMB 2 on the black and white portable, this cart would be in contention for the title of best action cart! Adventure Island 2 is the perfect companion to SMB 2, with slick graphics, nice pace and the right action. Throw in power-ups, multiple passages and super challenge and you get a great game!

8

This is not only an outstanding version of Adventure Island, but this is one of the best Game Boy carts to come out in a long time. The game plays very well considering the small screen and all of the familiar play mechanics of the series is built in. A great game to play when you're on a long trip as it's easy on the eyes.

Another high quality GB cart! Road trip to Vegas anyone? NOT! This sequel features improved graphics and sounds as well as better game play. The addition of the dino buddies and storing up weapons for the beginning of the round is a plus. Lots of levels and plenty of challenge. A little blurry at times but still very good.

Adventure Island 2 does just what a sequel should do, and improves on its predecessor! The graphics, though blurry, are much more detailed than the original, and the added option of gaining dinosaurs as well as the ability to switch weapons before starting a round are excellent. Though in B&W, it's a solid title.
