Game of the Month Review: Life of a Player 2
Date: June 1, 2000
Life of a Player 2 starts when Romeo, the "hero" of the game is invited to a millenium party in Mexico. After this a lot of things go wrong, as you would have probably expected :). Romeo will need all of his player skills to save himself from a lot of painful situations. This time, there's also some mini-games included in the game, of which my favorite is absolutely the barkeeper-game; in this game you'll need to mix a lot of drinks, and this is a nice test for your knowledge of alcoholic cocktails :).
This game's strongest point is obviously the humor. Tons of little jokes and funny situations are tucked in. Some of them (those jokes about Mexico) I didn't really understand though, but you probably need to be an American to do understand them (But hey, a lot of the jokes in games by Hercules and me no-one understand and can understand either :). The player battles, a parody on the scot-battles in Life of a Scotter are really cool too, though it's a shame there are only two of them.
Life of a Player, originally meant as a parody on Life of a Scotter by Hercules and me has grown to be far more than just a rip-off as stated on the title screen. The really funny humor, nice graphics and player battles make this one a perfect Game of the Month!
