  1. Ice Age 2: The Meltdown is a really fun game, but it is held back by one major flaw: its length. It takes only a couple of hours to beat this game if you have any gameplay experience.
  2. 75
    Control is tight, especially on Wii. Eurocom has added new gesture-based actions that feel very natural. For instance, you simply motion downward with the Wii remote to make Scrat butt-stomp. Or, you shake it side to side to get him kickin' at enemies.
  3. The motion controls don't fundamentally change this movie-licensed platformer, but they don't get in the way either, and the adventure is still a breezily fun one.
  4. The Meltdown is fun, and it makes good use of the Wii’s motion-sensitive controller. If you’re an Ice Age fan or a platformer fan that doesn’t mind a short game versus an engrossing epic, then it’s hard to go wrong.
  5. A decent, simple platform game that will probably keep any younger fans of the film quiet for a good few hours. [Feb 2007, p.63]
  6. It may not strive to reinvent the genre, or do anything especially new, but it makes good use of the Wiimote and is a pleasant experience overall.
  7. Unlike Open Season, which kept me thoroughly entertained from start to finish, I found "Ice Age 2" to be something of a repetitive chore at times.
  8. Looks fantastic but it plays like too many average games of movies. [Feb 2007, p.74]
  9. 50
    Given that Ice Age 2 is intended for a younger audience, it's not a terribly long or challenging game. Don't be surprised if the adventure is finished after about four or five hours.
