Might and Magic 2: Gates to another world reviews

Computer Gaming World Issue 57 (1989) - "The original game, while not perfect, was imaginative and interesting, and showed great promise for future entries in the series. However, Might & Magic II seems to have swerved off the path in the boring "monster mash/Monty Haul" direction, where ever-more-powerful characters with ever-more-powerful weapons fight ever-more-powerful monsters until it all escalates into the realm of the ludicrous. Bottom line: Not up to par with the original; great graphics but emphasis on combat overshadows all else. Great for monster mash lovers, but not recommended for  others."

Zero Magazine Issue 7 (1990) - "Might And Magic II is an open- ended adventure game in which you can wander almost anywhere and do almost anything. There are no set goals and no preset characters that you have to use. In fact, it's all rather confusing at first as you plough about beating up poor defenceless goblins and getting, erm... nowhere really."
