    While the design was obviously geared towards kids, Kao still lacks the necessary polish to be recommended, even at its price, and the overall difficulty may prove it to be a bit too harsh for its audience.
  2. Although Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 seems to constantly offer up a new genre at every point the action might otherwise become dull and lifeless, there is a persistent feeling during play that the game never seems to stand on its own feet.
  3. Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 isn't the best choice for exposing anyone to the platforming genre for the first time, but for those seriously dedicated to the genre, this is a mildly fun weekend retreat.
  4. Offers the full-package of challenge, entertainment, and reward. In its own unassuming way it delivers on the promise of a fun, family-friendly platformer. While this is no "Jak & Daxter," it’s no "Vexx," either.
  5. Kao's latest adventure isn't very innovative or challenging, but it is varied enough to hold a player's attention for an entire weekend.
  6. The real problem is that it has been done so many times before that at some stages in the game you get that déjà vu feeling you played the same location, executed the exact move and experienced the same sequence of events but this time it’s a Kangaroo you are sharing it with and not another endearing character.

    Not original Not lengthy Not life changing Just a whole hell of a lot of fun for £20 with a character that hasn't been shoved down Not original Not lengthy Not life changing Just a whole hell of a lot of fun for £20 with a character that hasn't been shoved down your throat by marketing companies. Refreshing and genuinley enjoyable that will not challenge hardcore platform gamers BUT is one of the few titles enjoyable enough to watch and play that it can provide a weekend of entertainment for all. Give it a go, you will be surprised with how much fun this is! Full Review »
