    Joe Danger 2: The Movie is a fun game to play. However, even with the change in scenery for each level, and the use of different vehicles, it can become quite repetitive over time. Much like the first game, some levels can be extremely frustrating if you want to complete every available objective. But if you enjoyed the first game, then you will likely enjoy this one. Just don't expect a lot of difference between them. Even with a few niggles with the controls, it is thoroughly entertaining, and there are hours and hours of play available for your money.

    Joe Danger 2 follows very closely in the footsteps of its predecessor, echoing the same gameplay with a new coat of paint. That's a good thing though, as we didn't get enough Joe the first time around.

    Joe Danger 2: The Movie is a compelling proposition for wannabe stuntmen. The distracting visual presentation can lead to some unfortunate mistakes, and loading times can get a little long – but overlook these flaws, and there's no danger whatsoever of you not thoroughly enjoying your time on set.
  4. Joe Danger's return is as thoroughly enjoyable as his debut – a combination of predictable physics, challenging level design and varied tasks make it more than a "play once, discard" downloadable. Perhaps it doesn't quite leave the safety of the original's blueprint enough, or capitalise on the excellent concept of making a stunt-heavy movie, but it remains a chirpy, robust platformer with surprising depth.

    Joe Danger 2 is tough, especially in the exclusive-to-PS3 bonus levels. Tough, but not unfair. You'll need to memorise the courses as you fling your vehicle through the air, and each of machines feels beautifully weighted and satisfying to control. [December 2012, p83]

    Joe Danger 2 might test our patience, but it's still a great little game well worth the download. [Holiday 2012, p.72]

    The campaign is too short, even for an arcade game. The gameplay is repetitive, and you'll probably be tired long before you've played all 100 levels. The multiplayer can be good fun with some friends, but don't expect the fun to last all night.

    I've played the first one for a while and liked it a lot (the demo was pretty long).

I didn't buy it though because it was pretty old by then and the price didn't drop.
    I got Joe Danger 2 free with ps+ and was excited. The game hasn't changed much, the controls are still about the same (the biggest issue with the first was the weird control scheme). Was has changed is the look: there are more different environments (there was no snow to be found in the first game as far as I know). The director keeps giving you orders, while a lot is going on in the screen. There's a lot of going on in the back- and foreground. This was really distracting and totally broke the game for me. You need to be able to concentrate on the stunts so distractions should be at a minimum. Even though I only played a (very long) demo of Joe Danger, and had Joe Danger 2 completely I've played the first one a lot more.

    Pretty, bright, colorful and appealing.... but boring once you actually play it. Similar to the first. Nothing worth buying.. if you alreadyPretty, bright, colorful and appealing.... but boring once you actually play it. Similar to the first. Nothing worth buying.. if you already have PS+ then it's free (at the time I'm writing this) and worth a download if you've burned through all your other games and looking for a way to pass the time. If you like these types of games, then I would say give it a shot... but don't expect much. Expand
