  1. An all-encompassing, time-consuming, I-just-can't-stop-playing-it kind of game.
  2. One downside is that there's a heck of a lot here that's pulled together from other games, if you're up on your gaming history you can play 'spot the element' here and rattle off a good five or so games that do bits of Ty 2 better than Ty 2 does.

    The frustration many hit during punishing sections in this sort of game is never allowed to develop. All the skill moves still require the right touch; the designers simply opened the window of what constitutes the "right" touch just enough to let everyone in (with some practice).

    To say Ty 2 is big would be an understatement. Krome has Super Sized it, spreading their funky animal kingdom as far and wide as the outback itself. [Dec 2004, p.81]
  5. While Ty The Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue isn't going to rock the gaming world to its foundations or win any awards, it's still an enjoyable and entertaining platform romp that will surprise those of you who decide to take a chance on it.
  6. Much, much better than I had thought it would be.
  7. The game’s audio package perfectly complements the joyful atmosphere presented visually.
  8. The separate cart racing game is a nice addition, weapon pickups and all, although you’ll need to run a few races to get used to the wider turning radius of the different carts.

    Whereas Ty 1 was decent, Ty 2 is good. The fact that it's all clumped together in one huge map gives it a GTA feel, the fact that all of theWhereas Ty 1 was decent, Ty 2 is good. The fact that it's all clumped together in one huge map gives it a GTA feel, the fact that all of the missions are optional is a HUGE plus, the hubworld is actually good, and the plot is more slapstick and funny than Ty 1, which I think is a GIGANTIC plus. But Shazza's truck moves a bit slow, making getting to your destination take longer than it should, and the helicopter missions...suck. It's a good game which I reccomend, but It's not a great one Full Review »

    This game was insanely fun, even though as an Australian I often found that the characters were a bit much...

    But still, it's cool seeing a quality game that is uniquely Australian and I would rate it as one of the best puzzle platformers of its era (right up there with Super Mario Sunshine and Ratchet & Clank)!
