  1. It's not complicated or sexy, and, in fact, the N64 game isn't all that attractive or well designed. But it is possible to have fun with it. If you are a fan of the Pixar films, the game struggles to deliver the same experience in video-game format - largely due to the missing fmv cutscenes.

    While Toy Story 2 admittedly boasts intuitive controls and tried-and-true platformer mechanics (that work), the Nintendo 64 version of the game is hampered by a poor framerate, washed out visuals and a decidedly blurry look when compared to its PlayStation counterpart. It's not difficult to ascertain that developer Traveller's Tales isn't focused on Nintendo 64 software -- only porting it as fast as possible.
  3. A solid platformer that only has some minor flaws. The sound was probably the weakest area, but it definitely isn't crucial for this game. It just would've been the icing on the cake.

    I wouldn't call this awful, but it does have its problems.

It can be glitchy at times, the controls kind of suck, and the game isn't the best graphically. However, I found the gameplay enjoyable after playing for a little bit. Never could seem to find that last Pizza Planet token though....

    BTW
    The PS version is so much better.

    I thought this was an amazing game for the Nintendo 64. It was very simple and easy to pick up. It also had lots of fun puzzles and bosses.I thought this was an amazing game for the Nintendo 64.

    I hidden gem in the N64 library. The best of what I call the Big Disney 3 (Toy Story 2, A Bug's Life, and Tarzan). Being able to exploreI hidden gem in the N64 library. The best of what I call the Big Disney 3 (Toy Story 2, A Bug's Life, and Tarzan). Being able to explore Andy's house, his neighborhood, the city, and Al's Toy Barn is really amazing. My only problem is that in order to make it past most levels, you have to backtrack to past levels to unlock the appropriate item needed to get to some tokens. Other than that, it's an amazing adventure that's worth experiencing. Full Review »
