Already explained in my Earthworm Jim review, there are some flaws with DOSbox and the screen. But overall, catchy music and pretty nice visuals to keep the gameplay intriguing. 6.5/10

Better then the first in almost every way but a shorter game. Steam version works surprisingly well.

I would recommend it IF you can adjust the configuration files. Otherwise, stay away and/or prepare to get a Steam refund. I posted instructions here to adjust them for EWJ1 and EWJ2:

The game was choppy. The controls weren't responsible at all. Audio had gaps. After the tweaks, it ran like it was supposed to, outside the occasional music gapping. The game itself seems like the CD version, and DOSBox is emulating a CD-Rom with audio tracks. I wonder if the newer DOSBox version has that fixed

This version has a trade-off. The music is recorded, unlike the SNES and Genesis versions. The music is also done really well. The graphics look better as well. You lose around 2 levels though.

Poor response by keyboard and mouse. Rom occasionally lags. No sound effects. Do not want anymore.

Earthworm Jim. If you are reading this, it is a game that you probably enjoyed as a child years ago (or maybe adult, I don't judge). This game is EJ2, no doubts about it. It is not however, the game that you want to play.

What is it then? This appears to be no more than the original code running in DOSBox. The game only supports the resolution of the era (640x480), fails to respond to mouse actions, and at times, fails to respond to basic keyboard actions. As other reviewers have stated, hit detection leaves a bit to be desired. This flaw turns Puppy Love from an adorable game of "aww, look, he is throwing puppies out the window" to "if that marshmallow misses another puppy in the middle I'm gonna lose it after Peter loses it on me." Also as other reviewers are saying, levels are missing (Lorenzen's Soil) or out of order (The Flyin' King).

To this day, I will pull out my Genesis and play some EJ2 to the last level. I would not however, play this game past the first level. This particular edition only serves as a last chance moneygrab from what once was a great enterprise. Do yourself (and your memories) a favor and play it on the consoles it was made for. Even if that means plugging in your old 386.

Don't fall for this, its a trap.
I remember as kid playing a fully windows Version of EarthWormJim 1 (special edition) it was a fully working windows ewj1 game, is there anything like that for Earthworm Jim 2 in this steam game version ???? Answer = NO.

Steam version is a poorly D.O.S emulated pack (dosbox), I cant even turn volume music down on ewj2, is so loud that i can barely listen to the in-game Sounds :/

as an EJ2 fan, i'm very doged, wow :'(

As a fan of Earthworm Jim growing up this is an interesting case of nostalgia hitting up with what amounts to a lousy port.

Back in the SNES days Earthworm Jim was considered a fun game due to it's unique charm. Excellent gameplay, responsive controls, outrageous humor, terrific song and music, and fair difficulty. It's everything you want in a game, something that doesn't take itself too seriously and if you screwed up it wasn't the game's fault it's because you weren't good enough.

Some are present here, however the port wasn't a clean one.

Hit detection can be dodgy, missing levels, sounds that just aren't plumb there. Even among the poor ports out there this is probably the worst of the bunch.

If you want to get Earthworm Jim, I'd recommend the SNES/Sega/SegaCD ports. You're missing out by getting this even if you are a fan of Earthworm Jim.

A some-what nice version of Earthworm Jim 2, the color pallet sometimes messes up when you go into fullscreen, which can be fixed, but it's a long process. This is the best game out of the EWJ Pack. One problem though, this version of EWJ2 doesn't have the second level, Lorenzo's Soil. This is also the DOSBox version of EWJ2 from The Whole Can 'O Worms pack for the PC, not that it's a problem, but it makes things a bit more pixelated.

Note: I have Windows 7, and this works fine.

One of the funniest and best platform series of the 90s. EJ 2 features more level variety and weapons than the original. It's the one I played the most as a kid....... I didn't have issues running it on my Windows XP system. The controls and gameplay were responsive when I used keyboard or joystick and I completed several challenging levels. It has CD-Quality sound. The accapella intro is so classic ! Fullscreen is broken, however (I checked and I couldn't fix it with dosbox). You will need to use an external zoom app to view it larger. Also, I bought the EJ 1, 2, and 3D bundle. Although Steam lists the games separately in the library, Interestlingly, when I installed the first game, Steam downloaded the files for all 3 games. When I installed the others, Steam quickly did a "discovering existing files."
