    There's quite a bit of platforming. All together, the levels could take over fifteen hours, which is about normal for a game of its type. More importantly, the experience is top notch all the way.

    Improving on the original in many ways, De Blob 2 is a funny and colourful platform experience.

    My hope after playing through de Blob 2 is that it's not overlooked like its predecessor. Although not a perfect platformer, de Blob 2 is a game that reminded me of experiences I had when I was first just getting into video games over twenty years ago. For anyone who may have missed the original or even for those that didn't this is a game that is at the very least worth a rental.

    The upbeat atmosphere, colorful levels and absolutely hilarious cut scenes make this game well worth playing even if the inflexible save system requires some planning to work around. Even with this limitation, seeing the cities transform from bleak cityscapes to colorful bastions of good cheer and frivolity is like nothing else in gaming today and should be appreciated as such.

    The concept of bringing joy into a lifeless world not only shows in the gameworld, but in the real world as well, as you smile along with De Blob 2 and its colourizing antics.

    De Blob 2 has an infectious feel-good vibe, but some frustrations cramp this platformer's funky style.

    Gameplay concepts this imaginative deserve more thorough exploration than the handful of basic, regurgitated puzzles that populate de Blob 2. Instead, we're stuck with a mediocre platformer that's too easy for adults and too repetitive for most anyone, kids in particular.

The colorful world really comes out. But i have 2 pet peeves about this game. #1. the lack of save button.. it autosaves and only when you beat a level... so a huge chunk of your work could be missing if you cant finish a level in time which is frustrating #2 When you beat a stage it lets you do these extra challenges and collect things without a time limit which is great but to get back to this once you leave the level. You have to rebeat the level to get back to this point which is really annoying. so between #s 1 & 2 not only do you have to beat the level fully to save you have to collect all the extra challenges and items too before you leave the level.. This is suppose to be a kid friendly game and its not hard at all but no one wants to replay the whole level once you beat it... they should start it off with you already beating it and giving you the option to redo it. half-complain that they took away 4 players which was kinda of a bummer took away the "party" part of the game But besides these 2.5 complaints the game is still fun and worth the discounted buy i got it for Expand

I'll get it to you straight, if you're a veteran gamer and looking for a good challenge, this is not for you. The only feature you may want this game for, is the fact that getting the platinum trophy is pretty easy, but be warned!!! two of the trophys may glitch on you. The gameplay is pretty bland, completely challengeless, and gets boring after a while. Although I have to admit painting a gray, colorless city and giving it life is kind of rewarding, but the way you're asked to acomplish this is meaningless. paint building A green, building B purple, bulding C and D brown; get red colour to press the red switch; ooohhh, you're feeling creative!!! ok, paint the rest of the buldings whatever colour you like.......It's like being in a construction worker simulator. Every now and then a new game mechanic gets into the mix, but it never feels fresh enough to be engaging. Worst part is, the idea actually has potential, had the developer given you the chance to paint in a more artistic and selfexpressive way, the game would've been more interesting, or ground breaking at least. But the way it remains now just doesn't cut full prize for a game, after the first two missions finishing the game is more homework-like than fun-like. Kids may have a better use for it, and in that matter I have to say that de time countdown seems like an unnatural feature and more than one kid will sob at how their effort went down the drain because they didn't finish the mission in 15 min. Rental at best if you feel like smoking dope and watching all the cooooooloursss!!! Expand
