Zork 2 Starts off from where your adventure ended in the first game. Just like in Zork 1, the game is a text based adventure. Your love or hate of the game will probably be based off that gameplay style alone. It requires a lot of your own imagination to enjoy this game. Furthermore the game can be frustrating if you can't get the right response to push you further along. It is worth a look but may not be for everyone.
