Turrican 2: The Final Fight

Year: 1991
Platform: Amiga
Publisher: Rainbow Arts
Developer: Factor 5
Genre: Action/adventure
Rating: ****

An excellent sequel to the already impressive "Turrican", this adventure features the same gameplay with improved weapons and graphics, and has a killer music score courtesy of Chris Hülsbeck. (the omni-directional flame thrower weapon is especially cool) This game ranks as my favorite Amiga game (and one of my all-time favorite games, period), and is essentially flawless, even though it gets really difficult at the end. Of particular note, one world in the game is based on "Alien", and populated with facehuggers and all sorts of creepy Giger-esque stuff. Great fun!
