Death Jr. II: Root of Evil

Playstation Illustrated
23 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The first game in this series brought to mind the narrowing line between PS2 graphics and PSP graphics. Suddenly the little system felt like the big system... I'm sure there were other games at the time with comparable sophistication, but it also had to do with rich design and imagination. Death Jr. II: Root of Evil plays from the same book as its predecessor and goes a little further.

Death Jr. II: Root of Evil

Just RPG
16 December 2007
  • Excerpt: In 2005, the original Death Jr. was released for the Sony PlayStation Portable. The game received some praise for its unique and interesting cast of characters, but was hit hard for its troubled camera and combat. Still, in 2006 Konami decided to give the series another shot with the release of Death Jr. II: Root of Evil for the PSP. Will this sequel bring new life to the series? Or should this one stay dead? Read on to find out.

Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil

TotalPlayStation.com
4 January 2007
  • Excerpt: The platforming genre has been something of a crooked nail to hit since the PlayStation Portable first touched down on American soil. And the flaws are common enough to be laundry-listed. If it's not a busted camera, it's a poor execution of controls. If it's not controls, it's back to the wanky game angles.

  • Conclusion: is an action/adventure game for the PSP. It features a goofy tale about the son of the Grim Reaper, DJ, who finds himself in a predicament when he and a friend unleash an evil force. DJ and company embark on a journey to stop the Root of Evil and return everything back to the way it was. The storyline proves to be a fun part of the game with strong animations and voiceovers. The game also has solid graphics and great game play that is both addictive and fun.

Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil

GameTrailers
29 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Remember when Sony first started talking about their amazing new portable game console? They flashed shots of a baby grim reaper slicing and dicing his way through almost-PlayStation 2-quality worlds in a game called Death Jr. and everyone was impressed. Then the game came out a while later and was met with indifference.

Death Jr. II: Root of Evil review (PSP)

HonestGamers
6 November 2006
  • Excerpt: This is not a shocking new step for the platformer, but what makes Death Jr. II fun is its light-hearted, irreverent approach. We’re not dealing with another “hip” animal mascot -- we’re dealing with the Grim Reaper’s son!

  • Summary: Death Jr. 2 ist bestimmt kein Überflieger, tut aber auch nicht weh: Die Entwickler haben das Potential einer „Tim Burton“-artigen Welt auch im zweiten Teil nicht konsequent genutzt. Zu belanglos ist die Story, zu eintönig das Gameplay auf Dauer. Da können auch die schicke Grafik, die gelungenen Zwischensequenzen und das abgefahrene Design der Level und Gegner die fehlende Atmosphäre nicht retten. Hüpf- und Springfreunde werden solide unterhalten, mehr aber auch nicht.

Death Jr. II : Root of Evil

JeuxVideo.fr
26 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Peu de joueurs se souviennent encore que Death Jr. fut en fait un des premiers jeux présentés pour illustrer les capacités graphiques de la PSP. Retardé à plusieurs reprises, le titre avait finalement fini par voir le jour en 2006 mais n'était pas parvenu à marquer les esprits. Un an après, le fils de la Mort, toujours en phase d'apprentissage, a revu sa copie et retourne sur PSP pour fendre à nouveau l'air de sa faux.
