    Blinx 2 is more of the same. Not much is changed, but there are new features which spices up the old gameplay from the first. Things are different this time, instead of Blinx you play as a created character of your touch. Much of the same mechanics is carried over from the first, but you now access this levels via hub world. Now the graphics aren't strong or even pretty with this title. Textures are really low-res and some of the smoke effects are just plain ugly. That said, the core gameplay still provides challenges with the manipulation of time and space. I will also mention that you can play as the pigs as well with more conventional weapons instead of time sweepers. The story isn't much of a focus with its extremely campy dialogue with lack of humor. Points to the multiplayer though, as it can be fun to play with a pal as you kit out your own team and customize to your liking. The multiplayer is where I had most fun as it is where the game had most flexibility. In the end, the only reason to purchase Blinx 2 is to reinvigorate some of the fun from the first game, and that's not too bad of an idea. Expand

  1. But to add some of the game elements that Artoon did such as oh, almost a whole second game with the Tom Tom Gang, and weaving it into the story, not to mention the 2 player co-op mode, does add make for nice improvements over the original game.
  2. Blinx 2 is on par with the original, but the fact is that there are better alternatives out there that don't muddy the platform fun with complicated game mechanics and dull level design. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]

    I'm also surprised at how well the audio came out here. The music, in particular, does a fantastic job at getting across the overall vibe of the area you're in, and/or, the side you"re playing on.
