**   by droidsattack. Comment: "Sub par sequel to the original. Some interesting ideas went in to the development of this game, but overall it is much too ambitious. I especialy dislike the vertical monitor. I don't know how rare it really is, but I've had several chances to purchase this arcade machine and I passed each time. It's dissapointing, but it was a worthy effort. The original Joust is super classic!" 2004-08-14 19:16:08Z

***** by blueoblong. Comment: "The _BEST_ game I have ever played! The two player mode is truly excellent. Only niggle is the machine locks up after level 100, but that’s still good value for 20p. I love Joust II, and have been trying to buy an original Williams machine for ages. " 2004-09-21 12:01:17Z
