RICKY: When Konami attempted to improve on Yie Ar Kung Fu by adding a bit ovva scroll and some 'wacky' opponents, it all ended up a bit ovva mess...

Oolong (from the first Yie Ar) has a son, aptly named Lee Young, who has vowed to wipe out the last of this father's deadly enemies - Yie Gah. But Yie Gah has many faithful Oriental minions, and Lee Young has to battle his way through them to reach the master enemy,

For every wave of minion attack elminated, Lee Young gets a tea leaf, and when he has five tea leaves he can settle down and brew a cuppa to replenish his energy. There are bowls of chow mein to nibble from, too; these make Lee temporarily invincible.

The main fault of Yie Ar Kung Fu II is the level of difficulty - there isn't any. It's very simple, unchallenging and pretty dull.

ROBIN: As a follow-up to a Smashed original, this is disappointing. It's not as beautifully presented or as playable as Yie Ar Kung Fu, and it's so easy to play. Don't bother with this mediocre effort.
