Now please - Enough about the mix up - let's talk about the game we have Barbarian II - Dungeons Of Drax.

1 was definatly too harsh for this game.
Glad to see it got a much more deserved rating.

I agree, it improved greatly over the horrid original.

What horrid original? Barbarian was one of the best game of its generation! Palace created a game that has yet (IMO) to be matched in gameplay (especialy when played against another human).
The original easily gets a 5/5, where this I would give it a 3/5 in a good day.

You crazy?
I played the original on the C64 I admit but 5/5 for the original is still a bit too much.
I'd give it a 2.5, :D .

"the horrid original" is actualy mastertronics Barbarian (which will soon be on this site), and has nothing to do with thies game (i.e. it's not the preqel, just has the same name).
I will have to stop this history lesson, or Seb will kill me. (j/k)

Nope - I'll just invite you to a nice little game of Death Sword - which is the true prequel of this game!

Yup.

Mastertronic didn't come near Barbarian methinks.

I really liked the first Barbarian (or Death Sword if you will) but I wasn't really fond of this one.

What's with the military communiques? Is there going to be a barbarian invasion soon?:)

The game isnīt so bad for its time (1989).
If you like this genres try also the classics Golden Axe, Gods, Rastan, Unreal (not the 3D game but the old one from Ubisoft), Bert the Barbarian and Deathbringer.

Actually "AXE OF RAGE" is the name of PC version of Barbarian 2, just like "Death Sword" is the name of PC version of Barbarian. Only here they left "BARBARIAN 2" signing in the game.
