Clockwork Knight was a great game, even though it was a bit too simple and a tad too short. It had the distinction of being one of the first games to really show off the Saturn's capabilities, and Clockwork Knight 2: Pepperochau's Adventure does the same.The game's much longer this time, and a lot more challenging.Those expecting a cakewalk will be pleasantly surprised by the sequel. In addition to the new challenges, CK2 has dozens more graphic tricks up its sleeve and more varied gameplay than the original. Fans of the the first game and of platform games like Gex will certainly dig this.

Fans of the original Clockwork Knight and gamers looking for a new platform challenge for their Sega Saturn will lose their lunches when they see Clockwork Knight 2. Critics (and gamers) both loved and hated the original game because, although it was a beautiful piece of eye-candy, it was also remarkably short and quite easy. Not so with the sequel. Almost everything that was wrong with the original has been corrected. The game is divided into four levels, each representing a room in a house, and each room has two different and challenging stages (not to mention the boss stages). After an amazing (and long) intro in which the cast of computer animated toys sing a mambo song (yes, I said mambo), the adventure begins. First off you'll have to defeat the last boss from the first game and then Chelsea is kidnapped again! (You remember her, don't you? She was the hot tamale princess.) Then you're off to save her. The graphics in CK2 are nothing short of amazing. While it's still a platform game, it uses a huge bag of graphics tricks to amaze you and keep your eyes a poppin'.
