    It's a fun romp that often lacks originality.

    The game is also beautiful beyond measure, with water, weaving grass, snow, mud, and other terrain effects that, at least for now, are pretty much unequalled, and boast sound effects to match. [Oct 2002, p.68]
  3. Despite the fact that there is nothing really innovative presented here, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is still a delightful romp in the old Outback.
  4. The joy in this game comes from the environments. Krome Studios has done a fantastic job of making the different locals feel alive.

    More savvy veterans should beware of platformer deja vu. [Nov 2002, p.129]

    About the best definition of average that I could ever imagine. [Nov 2002, p.144]
  7. The blatant plagiarism, atrocious dialogue and unimaginative gameplay combine to create one of the most dullest videogame experiences I’ve had in years.

Very australian... and very cool varied graphics. Game is not too difficult to complete (probably because it's aimed for children). I hope there is a follow-up to this cool character. Collapse
