Not as bad as some people let on. Just remember that this is not a typical action platformer. Think of it as an unforgiving puzzle game instead. Difficult, but impressive game. Great gfx, good effects (parallax scrolling!), great tunes, and very imaginative design. I never really gave it a chance years back because everyone said it was either trash or "way better on Amiga," but now that I've played it extensively (I have yet to beat it though) I can safely say that this is an above average game. It's a shame that chapter III never made it ouside Amigaville.
Psygnosis thought by adding an impressive intro (without sound, sadly), they could deceive us with yet another atmospheric Beast game. Shadow of the beast 2 is better than its predecessor, but still far from good IMO.
