Lots of adventures are waiting – use a snowboard to cross the frozen "gap of no return", win a breath-taking speed boat race and fly on the back of your pelican friend across the sea until you reach the legendary treasure island and the hideout of Barnaba.

  1. Even though it might be over too quickly for platforming veterans, those who like action from the word go will find their long lost pal in Kao the Kangaroo 2. With an enormous and linear breath of fresh air feeling, this game puts the cool back in old school and will have most gamers jumping for joy for as long as it lasts!
  2. While Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2, is in no way a ground breaking game, it does offer a pleasant experience to gamers who will enjoy a game that brings back memories of past platformers.
  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. 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.

    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.
  6. Whatever redeeming qualities Kao 2 might have, there is still no excuse for making a game that punishes the player for things beyond the player's control.
  7. Just another average platformer, and by no means goes any further.

    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! Expand
