Bound into the world of Jazz Jackrabbit, where he's now joined by his (self explanatory) brother Spaz. Devan Shell, arch enemy of Jazz's has stolen the wedding ring of Jazz's fiancee, Eva Earlong. Devan plans to use the ring in his time machine to go back in time to make sure Jazz was never born.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 combines 12 weapons, multi-player support, and over 30 levels of fast-paced action where Jazz (and Spaz) grab power-ups and defeat bosses. The game environment features animated backgrounds and destructible scenery. There are intelligent enemies that dodge your attacks, leap at you, and blitz you with multi-staged assaults. A number of puzzles and secret areas can be found as well.
Multi-player modes include capture the flag, treasure hunt, and race modes. Up to four players can play games on one screen while games with up to eight players can be had with two computers and a modem. With four players to a screen, LAN and Internet games feature up to 32 players.
There are adjustable difficulty settings for gamers of every skill level. Plus, rookies can learn how to play in the Training mode. A game editor called Jazz Creation Station that allows players to create their own levels is included too. ~ Chris Couper, All Game Guide
