  1. The frenetic pace and intense (sometimes frustrating) challenges of the 10 levels is absorbing, graphically most satisfying, quite varied and, most of all, funny.
  2. If you like to have fun playing games, and even if you like to laugh, there are a few parts in MDK 2 that are simply FUNNY, not the normal supposed-to-be-funny crap that you see in a lot of games, but clever humour, something that is generally very rare.
  3. Reinvigorate your childhood fantasies of living in a cartoon and pick up MDK2 - there ain't much better in the genre.
  4. This time the settings are richer and the environment is fuller and he's got help.

    One of the best console experiences I've had on the PC in a while.
  6. The three alternating characters make the gameplay diverse enough to warrant repeat play, and will suit gamers of all persuasions.
  7. Unfortunately, the puzzles and obstacles become less fun and more annoying the further you get into the game leaving you spending more time on them and less time enjoying the good aspects of the game.

    Beautiful game. First PC game I ever owned, brings back memories of that warm back kitchen, the smell of my brand new super pro amd 1 ghz, Beautiful game. First PC game I ever owned, brings back memories of that warm back kitchen, the smell of my brand new super pro amd 1 ghz, Ati Radeon-powered super computer. I was secretly scared of this game, yet loved it for its atmosphere. The huge levels, distant sniper shots and hilarious cutscenes make this a fabulous games... and who can forget the brilliant doors you have to shoot to open? Classic, zangy and unique. Expand

    Best game I ever played and the last of the "hard" games - before developers made them a walk in the park. This includes Halo on Legendary Best game I ever played and the last of the "hard" games - before developers made them a walk in the park. This includes Halo on Legendary which, although fun, was as easy as taking candy from a Grunt. Just sayin' You want to test yourself? Buy, play and finish this game w/o resorting to online hints and walk-throughs. I dare ya. I double dare ya. Heck, I even triple dare ya. You'll be glad you did. GREAT GAME! Expand

    A huge improvement to the original constructed by Bioware. Adds two new playable characters from the original, voice acting, a comic bookA huge improvement to the original constructed by Bioware. Adds two new playable characters from the original, voice acting, a comic book style plot, between mission custcenes, and a plethora of new powerups. The devs really took advantage of the new character's skill sets to make you wrack your brain at every puzzle while still building on the main character's skills to provide him with a unique trip too. Definitely worth picking up along with the original if you enjoy platformers. Collapse

    It always boggled my mind how come that creators of my all-time favourite RPG Baldur's Gate are creating a sequel to fast-paced action MDK,It always boggled my mind how come that creators of my all-time favourite RPG Baldur's Gate are creating a sequel to fast-paced action MDK, but they did a great job. Wasn't a big fan of more colorful cartoonish art style, but it was incredibly good, fun and offered 3 different characters to play. Very good and enjoyable action. 8/10 Expand
