    Kao the Kangaroo 2 combines the same generic gameplay we’ve seen time and time again and delivers it at a budget price during the tail-end of this generation of consoles.

    Compared to the first game, this game is awesome. It's not short, the levels are well designed and look really nice, there are multiple worldsCompared to the first game, this game is awesome. It's not short, the levels are well designed and look really nice, there are multiple worlds to go through, voiced cutscenes etc.

    The gameplay is mostly similar to Rayman Revolution - in each level you have a set of collectibles that you can get and after you finish a level you get to play another one, the levels are linear and filled with checkpoints. Another similarity is that there is also a hub (called Dark Docks), from which you go to your adventures. By collecting stars and crystals, you can upgrade your abilities or open bonus levels (which are quite bad honestly).

    As in Kao 1, there are boss battles in this game and except for the final boss, all the fights are laughably easy with bosses often telling you strategies on how to beat them (yeah, it's true).

    The problems with controls and camera remain, though. During some chase sequences or slide moments it is not hard to notice that the controls are rather stiff and do not respond the way they should, making mostly the sliding passages largely annoying even though they'd otherwise be easy. Unfortunately, this game has a lot of gimmick levels in which you are supposed to either race/chase/run or use a vehicle so you'll feel the stiffness of the controls quite a bit. It reduces the overall quality of the game and the fun experience.

    The problem with this game is that even though it is nice and fun, the bad controls and a complete lack of originality (as this game manages to use elements from other platformers and combine them, however, makes them inferior to the ones found in their proper games) make this platformer not that good.
