  1. If you enjoyed the original, have younger children or just like light-hearted same console competition, you’ll definitely want to grab FF2 for 800 Microsoft points. Time to warm up those chompers and have some fun!
  2. 80
    If you were a casual player of the original, it's probably not worth picking this one up. However, if you are new to the series, engaging gameplay and fun multiplayer options make FF2 easily worth your hard earned 800 Microsoft Points.
  3. Super-addictive twitchfest with a terrific theme. [Sept 2008, p.74]
  4. This sequel is fun but gets quickly old when played by adults or experienced gamers. Of course, you will understand that these kind of games aren’t made with the purpose to compete with the CoD’s or Halos of the world but to give a cool, easy, fun and unexpensive alternative to game without hassles.
  5. Shipwreck Showdown improves upon Feeding Frenzy in almost every way, but it's still too easy and too short.
  6. It's casual to the core, designed to be playable by everyone from little kids to open-minded grandparents, and that's no bad thing. In those terms, Feeding Frenzy 2 is a decent package that improves on the original in terms of size, if not gameplay.
  7. I just can't see myself inviting friends over to have an all-night Feeding Frenzy 2 session.

    Love this game. Better graphics than the 1st, and co-op is a lot of fun to play with my oldest son. I'm not very good, so I'm emberassed to say that the Lite mode is my favorite. Expand
