  • Summary: The tiger returns to take back the Outback in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2. The evil Boss Cass has broken out of Currawong Jail and has hatched a plan to take over the world with an army of Uber Reptiles. Now it's up to Ty, the boomerang-wielding hero, and his newly formed team of Burramudgee Bush Rescue mates to stop him. As Ty, you can explore an expansive open environment on foot or in a vehicle. You'll also have access to more boomerangs and mech units, each with special powers and abilities. Expand

  1. Rescue very nearly outclasses every other cutesy platformer on Xbox. [Nov 2004, p.90]
  2. The separate cart racing game is a nice addition, weapon pickups and all, although you’ll need to run a few races to get used to the wider turning radius of the different carts.
  3. 76
    Ty 2's uncomplicated game play, straightforward story, and friendly quality create a fun experience for younger gamers and could provide a couple of hours distraction for older players.
  4. Mission objectives are not always clear and some youngsters might get lost or frustrated at the lengthy travelling between missions, but there is always something fun to see or do.
  5. 70
    Though getting through Ty 2 is particularly easy, it would likely be enough of a challenge for younger players to make this a good gateway game. The same humor, scripting, and play mechanics that feel childish to experienced players will be new and entertaining to those without experience.
  6. Ty's game play is simple to pick up and play, while it merits enough challenge to make even veteran platform junkies scratch their heads for a bit.
  7. Ty 2, for all the effort (and don't get us wrong, a lot of effort has been applied), retreads such a familiar path, and feels so utterly vacuous, you might just as well look at the box and consider the game completed. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]

    I played the first part of the game. It looks good and is fun to play. There's probably some things that are not entirely perfect, but I like it very much. I would've like a camera that's locked behind your character, but most games lack this. Many thanks to the creators of this game. Fritz Collapse

    It's very much a typical platformer. But it's humor makes it an above average game.
