More of the same for Descent fans - and if you liked Descent, that's a great thing.

Descent 2 takes an "if it ain't broke, then don't fix it" approach to the classic Descent formula. However, there are some new additions, like new weapons, and cool new gadgets like an afterburner, headlights, and an "energy-to-shields" converter. The game engine and sound effects are mostly recycled from the original Descent, except for the sounds of the new weapons and enemies. However, the graphics are an improvement over Descent's already state-of-the-art graphics. Descent 2's environments and enemies are completely different from those in the original Descent (as opposed to how Doom II recycled most of Doom's environments and enemies), and of course, the levels and storyline are different (of course -- how else would it be a sequel?) If you liked Descent, then you'll love Descent II. If you loved Descent, you'll drool over the sequel's new levels, environments, enemies, and features. Even if you're sick of the same old gameplay, Descent II still has enough new additions to the original Descent formula to make it well worth playing, and it's still a blast to play. Like the original Descent, this sequel gets a 10 / 10.
