    The characters and environments are amazingly generic as well and the graphical and audio production is simply average.
  2. Kao's latest adventure isn't very innovative or challenging, but it is varied enough to hold a player's attention for an entire weekend.
  3. The real problem is that it has been done so many times before that at some stages in the game you get that déjà vu feeling you played the same location, executed the exact move and experienced the same sequence of events but this time it's a Kangaroo you are sharing it with and not another endearing character.
  4. Sure, Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 does absolutely nothing to push the genre forward; but it's hard to deny that the game is a very fun distraction while it lasts.

    Unlike the first game, this one's more well known and better. It looks good, has personality, and Kao is as cute as ever. It plays well tooUnlike the first game, this one's more well known and better. It looks good, has personality, and Kao is as cute as ever. It plays well too and Kao is A LOT faster than in the first game, which is a plus. But, you can't place your own checkpoints anymore and is pretty much a stripped-down version of Rayman 2: the Great Escape. I still recommend it, as it's pretty damn good. But it's nowhere near as good as some other platformers out there Full Review »

    A great game if you like cutsey, bright graphics and that simply fun appeal. But, if you're expecting a glorious game filled with A great game if you like cutsey, bright graphics and that simply fun appeal. But, if you're expecting a glorious game filled with action/adventure, you'd be disappointed. if you're interested in this game I'd at least get it used or rent it. Full Review »

    A solid game, but it lacks the creative spirit of the original title.
