  1. Even though it might be over too quickly for platforming veterans, those who like action from the word go will find their long lost pal in Kao the Kangaroo 2. With an enormous and linear breath of fresh air feeling, this game puts the cool back in old school and will have most gamers jumping for joy for as long as it lasts!
  2. As much as this game would like you to believe it's suitable for all ages, I believe it's been made with kids in mind and at the same time, someone in the Quality Control department at Jowood has thought that low quality will be fine for said same children.
  3. Kao's latest adventure isn't very innovative or challenging, but it is varied enough to hold a player's attention for an entire weekend.
  4. Those prepared to give Kao the love and attention it deservers will find a more than capable adventure waiting inside.
  5. For many who struggled with Kao's first outing on the Dreamcast this new version is everything the original should have been - and more.
  6. The real problem is that it has been done so many times before that at some stages in the game you get that déjà vu feeling you played the same location, executed the exact move and experienced the same sequence of events but this time it's a Kangaroo you are sharing it with and not another endearing character.
  7. Only really recommended for wide-eyed children who are yet to tire of jumping on switches and collecting thousands of shiny, yet meaningless, tokens.
