“If you want a good blast from the past or like the sound of a cigar smoking gun totting robotic dog, then I absolutely recommend playing MDK2 HD on PC.”
8.8/10 – Game Chronicles

“Together, the three characters form a fast-paced, delirious whole backed by an invigorating electronic soundtrack by Jesper Kyd.”

About This Game

Overhaul Games brings MDK2 back to the PC in incredible high definition, with enhanced graphics, sound, and gameplay. See the classic action platformer the way it was meant to be seen, heard, and played... on a PC!

Kurt Hectic in his snazzy suit with ribbon chute is back to save the universe. This time he is teamed with the genius Dr. Hawkins and the 6-legged gun-toting robotic dog, Max. Together they must out-sneak, out-blast and out-think their enemies as they attempt to reclaim the Earth from a vile alien menace.

And this time they're in HD.

All three characters - Kurt, Doctor Hawkins and Max are playable, each has his own levels, powers and items and a completely different gameplay focus. Kurt is about stealth and sniping, the Doctor has a few direct attacks but also has the ability to create items and effects out of simple household objects, while Max is a cigar smoking, quad gun toting demolition squad of a dog.

Key Features

  • 10 Levels
  • Over 20 Enemies
  • Three different player characters, Max, Dr Hawkins and Kurt
  • Unique levels and items for each character
  • Brand new HD graphics
  • Enhanced audio from the original sources

Im a fan of MDK series. This HD version however has many bugs and doesnt even work for me after I went into forums and tried every said fix. So if you have an ati card stay away.

a fun game that might be worth your while if your a fan.
but the HD port has frame rate problems, VERY glitchy, and some parts (like mini-games) are SD
plus parts of the game can be very very irritating (and very hard).
and ATI users might have to check the forums on how to get the game too work

Buy with CAUTION!!!!

As being an AMD CPU owner and an ATI HD6950 owner running the latest 14.11.2 Beta driver; this game runs great! Haven't had any issues that everyone else is talking about. Possibly lucky? I duuno. But I have been having a blast remembering how fun this game is. Good times.

Great game! If you decide to play it, make sure to save often enough manually because it sometimes it auto saves just as you are falling into a pit...

Thought this would be a whole overhaul of the original game, with higher standards of new generation systems.

I was wrong.

Higher polygon models for the main characters (Kurt, Max, Dr, and bosses) and the rest are plain old characters from the original, and texture goes the same.

Some animations are played in the original 4:3 screen with black bars on each side for 16:9 monitors, and occational sound glitch, that you will have to exit the game and re-run to bring the sound back to normal.

Don't get this game, instead get the original MDK 2.

This game is a broken graphical mess! After updating my graphics card and troubleshooting, it still is unplayable!

Broken hunk of garbage.

I loved this on Dreamcast, and to a lesser extent the armageddon version on PS2, so I got excited when I heard this was coming to steam.


Time to nope the ♥♥♥♥ outta here on this one. If you DARE have an AMD card you need a menu bug fix or you wont be able to tell what the hell is going on.

feel like playing this one from the couch? well too bad. controller support is broken as well. I tried a wired xbox pad, wireless xbox pad with direct input driver, and an old saitek controller, all of which failed to be detected in the game, on three different computers on a mix of windows 8 and 7, with nvidia and AMD GPUs.


AVOID.

MDK2 was an odd but awesome game when I first played it. The three different playable characters behaved completely differently, and had completely different playstyles for their respective levels.

The game looked great for its time, and much of that has translated well into this HD remake. The textures have been revamped, the models improved, and the audio is less tinny than it used to be.

It plays and runs great, and the core of the gameplay remains untouched if you don't choose the new easy/extra hard difficulties.

A game with great humor and just a pervasive oddness throughout.

No Xbox controller support. Text is broken on ATI. Most parts are forced to 4:3. Less detailed than the original at some areas. Audio sounds worse and distorted. No Steamworks extras. Benchmark facility is missing. Detail options are missing. The lavatory mirrors STILL doesn't work!

I would not recommend this game at all. Even if it worked properly, which it doesn't even come close to doing, it is a lazy HD remake at best. I would especially be careful if you have an AMD card as I had constant glaring graphical glitches which made the game almost unplayable. You're much better off getting the original as this barely looks any better and suffers from way more issues.

I did not have any problems like some of the other reviewers. The graphics is decent for such an old game and the HD version looks good. Gameplay is as fun as I remember and just as funny too.

If you were a fan of MDK 2 you should get this HD version.

One does wonder why this HD remake was even necessary, if no real effort wasn't even going to be put into it anyway...

The only things getting an HD lift is character models, everything else is mostly untouched.
All cut scenes are played in different screen resolutions.
The music freaks out quite often.

To finish it all off it doesn't even work for most AMD card users.

In conclusion, don't buy this.
Stick with the original as it will run much smoother.

This game is hilarious and mowing down the hordes with 4 machine guns is quite satisfying. However this HD edition has some technical issues, notably that the controller support in the options is a lie, M&K is the only option. Also the last 3 levels can be a bit annoying. Don't pay full price for it.
