  1. Breaking the mould of film conversion failures, this is a great game and (niggling flaws aside) is fun to play.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  5. Even the most fanatic of Toy Story fans will see straight through this game... the unoriginality and outdated-ness coupled with the poor graphics and weak framerate send this straight to the bargain bins. If you want to follow the exploits of Buzz Lightyear, go watch the movie and leave this one at the toy store.

    This game can easily be compared to Mario 64. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. There are about 11 levels with 4 or 5 bosses. These levels are very in detailed and have many boss, jumping, and collecting challenges. Although, the camera does get in the way a lot, and the game isn't a masterpiece. If you enjoy Toy Story, or you just want a fun game to play casually, you will like this game. Collapse

    Ok, The game play can be both good and bad at times, and It is not the worst game ever. It's an o.k. game. The sounds get very repetitive and the game play can be off at times but I played worse. Expand
