Dungeon Keeper 2 was the sequel to Peter Molyneux's Dungeon Keeper and prequel to the cancelled Dungeon Keeper 3.
Like its predecessor, players take the role of a dungeon keeper, building and defending an underground dungeon from the would-be heroes that invade it, as well as from other keepers.

In the game's campaign mode, the player is charged with recovering the portal gems from each area in order to open a portal to the surface.
This was charged as a setup for the sequel, where the gems would be used to invade the surface world and defeat the faction of goodly heroes.

The most immediate change from Dungeon Keeper is in its graphics; the world is now fully 3D. Where monsters were previously sprites, they are now 3D models.

ESRB Rating: M
Additional Game Types: God-game, 1st Person.
System Requirements: Pentium 2 Processor @ 166mhrz, 32MB of RAM, 2MB of VRAM, 300MB hard drive space, and DirectX 8.1 (According to Silver Edition Installer)

If any, the Homepage should be LionHead since the people from Bullfrog are that now.
But I don't think we can do that, we already did this. xD

With this version we are getting close to the release of the game, that's why I decided to merge the 2 maps in one.
Search simply for "Hive Keeper" on battle.net EU/NA and you'll find it

One of the most original, ironical, evil building game. Good mechanics and lovely ambiance :D

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

this game would be freaking awesome if the developers havent changed the graphics for a toon like... But at least it improved to 3D. I havent gave this 1/10 because this is the sequel to one of the best games that i have EVER played.
