  1. With a total of nine levels and three boss battles, the total runtime of Ty is about ten hours flat.
  2. The game is also beautiful beyond measure, with water, weaving grass, snow, mud, and other terrain effects that, at least for now, are pretty much unequalled, and boast sound effects to match. [Oct 2002, p.68]
  3. If you’re new to the genre, this would be a good game to get you started into the style.
  4. Great for younger players and can provide a satisfying experience for teens and adults as long as they don't mind their replay value coming from finding every last collectible in the game.
  5. While it has good graphics, awesome sound and decent play, the brevity of gameplay winds up selling this title short in the end.
  6. Although there are some 15 levels available here even a novice gamer should have it all tied up in a number of sittings.
  7. 68
    The ultra-friendly gameplay and simplistic cartoony rendering certainly won't put the face of this new mascot on any t-shirts anytime soon.
  8. 16 levels of wild 3-D action. [Dec 2002, p.220]
  9. 64
    A decent (yet sadly derivative) game lying underneath the mess.
  10. 60
    Veteran platformers will make it through with little challenge, but that detriment makes it perfect for less experienced, older, or much younger players looking for a cute diversion.
  11. The character is bland, the environments are stale and the fetch missions are tedious. [Dec 2002, p.236]
  12. Name almost any gaming cliché and Ty is making you yawn by using it.

    It was great, I really liked the action in it. It could have been better, but I would have only changed a few things. Great game!

    This is a great game for adults and small children. My grandson (nearly 6) loves the biting & repeats the beginning level over & over deliberately. He also enjoys playing my saved game where I have unlocked all the levels. Full Review »
