    Honestly, I had no problems with this game whatsoever, the boomerangs were unlike anything I had ever experienced in a game, the accents could be done up a bit, but apart from that, I loved it way better than any crash bandicoot games.

    I think the plotline to this game is terrible if you call what what ty goes through good enough to be a plotline. You only keep two of the original rangs if you upgrade everything, and they deleted/mixed other rangs. The Zoomerang and infrarang are now the Infrarang/Xrang. That's bull. The Chronorang is completely done away with, which I think is a disaster. The vehicles are way overboard.I think the plotline to this game is terrible if you call what what ty goes through good enough to be a plotline.

The Chronorang is completely done away with, which I think is a disaster. The vehicles are way overboard. The Shadow Bunyip is the only one I remotely like using. The collectibles arent worth collecting anymore. Everything is for opals, nothing worthwhile. Even if you manage to accomplish 100%, what do you get? A big fat Nothing. The missions have almost nothing to do with the game and in no way stays in touch with the core gaming of Ty 1. If you were to base the score simply on gaming, I would give it a 0.7. Now we get into mechanics. Yeah, he walks, runs, swims, and drives fine. Loading screens are bearable. As far as programming and mechanics, this game is actually pretty good, which brings it up to a 3. Ty 1 actually had mechanics in spades. Other than that, Ty 2 is a terrible game. I would not wish this disease of a game on anyone older than 8. 8 year olds might actually enjoy it. Expand

    Not as good as the first, but still pretty fun to play. It kind of took the same route as the Jak Daxter series and started with this mission based type gameplay. This is still fun, but collecting thunder eggs was much more satisfying.

    Its predecessor was far from original, and though Ty 2 isn't completely original itself, it offers some great platforming-action/adventure gameplay for children of all ages. Pros: More Australian accents and likable characters, improved controls and camera angles, and crisp graphics. Cons: Short, boring mission modes, and it's still nothing compared to better platforming titles, such asIts predecessor was far from original, and though Ty 2 isn't completely original itself, it offers some great platforming-action/adventure gameplay for children of all ages.

    Unlike its predecessor, where Ty travels to missions by portals, now he got a 4*4 car to travel around Southern Rivers and head to his missions. The very first missions serve as tutorials. Ty uses his trusty rangs and sharp white teeth to defeat his enemies, also uses giant humanoid robots to take out the big ones. The graphics in this game is awesome.

The very first missions serve as tutorials. Ty uses his trusty rangs and sharp white teeth to defeat his enemies, also uses giant humanoid robots to take out the big ones. The graphics in this game is awesome. You can see everything clearly and it showcases the beauty of its setting, Australia. The audio is just like the game's graphics, wonderful, well-produced and fits the missions. The dialogue in this game is really well-scripted although not as well as Sly Cooper but much better than Crash Bandicoot's usual toilet humor. Since the game is set in Australia, everyone speaks in Australian accent. Collectibles can be found anywhere. You can find them and buy them in shops. That's also racing games too. The racing games is almost like Crash Team Racing and Mario Kart, are filled of power-ups. The downside of this game is, with so little to offer, the game may look very empty in certain times. The hub looks very bland with that few missions. Unfortunately, the missions is almost similar to the others. They're like search and rescue, defense, dangerous delivery, chopper rescue and goes on and on like that. The game is really short, like much shorter than Sly-Cooper-and-the-Thevius-Raccoonus-short, when gamers already know what to do. Other than that, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is a very fun game. The game doesn't break new ground but really entertaining. Below-12 years old kids, which this game is target fir, will love this game a lot. Too bad teenagers wouldn't enjoy it as much as they do to Star Fox and Spyro the Dragon though. Crash Bandicoot, you better understand that Ty is catching up to you! Expand

    Though getting through Ty 2 is particularly easy, it would likely be enough of a challenge for younger players to make this a good gateway game. The same humor, scripting, and play mechanics that feel childish to experienced players will be new and entertaining to those without experience.
  2. Overly sophisticated elements have been held back to appeal to the younger gamer but some hugely tricky jumping puzzles are bound to cause frustration. Luckily, gameplay is varied. If you get stuck, you can hit the road, and before long you'll be faced with a different challenge.
  3. The game's graphics are charming and colorful, and certainly very child-friendly. The many levels you'll find are of a respectable size and with many things to do, but in pure technical terms, none of this will "wow" an experienced gamer.
