> DRUID 2: Enlightenment by Firebird

Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

It's a shame that Firebird Software felt that they had to release full-price games; it made some of these titles look inferior compared to their budget releases. I think that Druid 2 could have been a very successful budget release - I know I would have purchased a copy. Anyway, £1.99 or £9.99, the ending is always the same ...

The druid completed his final task ...

... and teleports outside the castle.

The castle fades away.

Darkness ...

... turns to light.

Daylight is restored.

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? I'm a serious cheat. I didn't bother playing through this one; I just used a trainer by Remember, which allowed me to jump straight to the end sequence.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Our intrepid Druid is teleported to the outside of the castle. The castle then fades away and daylight is restored.

COMMENTS: It really is an OK-ish ending, but the thing is, it's very much like the first Druid game and doesn't really improve. Like the first Druid, it could have done with some ending credits, storyline and a great ending tune. The programmers seemed to stick with the same old format.

FINAL SAY: They could have improved on the first game, but they didn't bother :(

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10

"Since you cheated the druid 2 ending, you missed following sequence:

  • druid casts the white orb in the mouth of acamantor

  • when druid teleports outside the castle, you can see four-armed spirit
    of acamantor fleeing

  • then comes the sequence that's on your website.

I was a huge druid II fan back in the day. I felt it was worth every penny, as there was lot to explore and many spells that had unique effects that truly affected the gameplay. I completed it couple of times, also got the lightmaster rank.
I would give it 8/10. Would you pass that as a second opinion? Thanks!"
