  1. PSM Magazine

    The variety in its environments is quite high, and the large number of mission objectives will certainly challenge you for countless hours. However, the overall level of difficulty isn't that high. [Nov 2002, p.46]
  2. Play Magazine
    80
    The game is also beautiful beyond measure, with water, weaving grass, snow, mud, and other terrain effects that, at least for now, are pretty much unequalled, and boast sound effects to match. [Oct 2002, p.68]
  3. Game Informer

    The platforming aspects have all been done before, and that will keep little Ty a sliver away from greatness.[Nov 2002, p.128]
  4. Whilst not the most gripping or exciting game I have ever played, it is nevertheless fun-filled & entertaining and one that parents (or grandparents!) could easily sit down and play with the kids! Ripper!
  5. 70
    A very standard platform game marred by a wonky camera.
  6. 60
    Veteran platformers will make it through with little challenge, but that detriment makes it perfect for less experienced, older, or much younger players looking for a cute diversion.
  7. The levels are based around the old fashioned ‘portal’ system, so the need to load in every level is blatantly apparent – and in no way comparable to the impressive ‘no load’ system that Naughty Dog so skilfully pioneered.

    I love this game so much. I've been playing it on and off since i was at least 8... so 8 years! It influences how I am today, all I want to doI love this game so much. I've been playing it on and off since i was at least 8... so 8 years! It influences how I am today, all I want to do is explore the wild! I love ty and i love the environments. I am super disappointed by ty 2 3 and 4. I am not sure what to do about it! I have completed the first ty game multiple times and the sequels are just too advanced. the first ty is so down to earth, the sequels are like completely different games. what to do... Expand
