ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) review:
"Eye of the Beholder II is bigger and ever-so-slightly better than the original. SSI and Westwood Associates have played it safe and produced an acceptable, if not exactly revolutionary, sequel."

Computer and Video Games (CVG) review:
"This sequel takes the original formula and improves upon it no end. The graphics have been revamped, the control system tweaked and the overal feel is much smoother and friendlier. [...] If you enjoyed the first game, then you'll find this is much more than a few extra levels."

Trivia, facts, etc.

Eye of the Beholder 2 used a modified version of the first game's engine, added outdoor areas and greatly increased the amount of interaction the player had with their environment, along with substantially more 'roleplaying' aspects to the game.

The gameplay remains within the confines of the temple but players have to explore the vast catacombs beneath, the upper levels of the temple, and the three towers.
