Developed by: Raven Software - Activision (1998) - Third-person 3D Action - Rated: Teen
Heretic II is a fantasy action-adventure game developed by Raven Software and published by Activision in 1998 continuing the
story of Corvus, the main character from its predecessor, Heretic. Using a modified id Tech 2 engine, the game features a mix of
a third-person camera with a first-person shooter's action, making for a new gaming experience at the time. While progressive,
this was a controversial design decision among fans of the original title, a well-known first-person shooter built on the Doom
engine. The score was composed by Kevin Schilder. The art design and some of the artwork itself were created by Gerald Brom.
Heretic II was later ported to Linux by Loki Software and to the Amiga by Hyperion Entertainment.
For those familiar with the original Heretic, the changeover to a third person perspective may come as a surprise. Powered by
the distinctive Quake II engine, Heretic II is a continuation of the deep storyline introduced in Heretic. Corvus, the Sidhe, has
survived the hideous curse cast upon him by the dying D'sparil who exiled him to the bleak Outer Worlds. Now, aided by the Tome
of Power, he once again must face the evils unleashed upon the world of Parthoris.
In Heretic II, Corvus has a powerful arsenal of nearly a dozen offensive and defensive magic spells to complement his weapons of
war. Through the essence of mana, Corvus can invoke deadly spells such as fireballs, firewalls, thunder blasts and the Sphere of
Annihilation. The powerful Tome of Power can imbue nearly any spell or magic item with properties far beyond normal effects at
the cost of serious mana-drain. Other defensive abilities include the Ring of Repulsion, Meteor Swarm, a teleportation spell and
the temporary but potentially deadly Morph Ovum incantation that turns any target into a chicken.
