At a glance, Croc 2 may seem like a 'Mario 64 clone', but Croc 2 is indeed a very impressive game. It has a good blend of the aspects of Nintendo's Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time and UbiSoft's Rayman 2. The only gripe is that the camera angles can not be changed like Mario 64.

Croc 2 är som roligast när allting flyter på och man klara av det man måste för att komma vidare. Jobbigt blir det när man tvingas utföra flera svåra kommandon efter varandra i snabb takt. Då är det lätt att misslyckas och det blir tröttsamt att pröva igen och igen. Ett spel ska hålla länge för att det är stort, inte för att det är för svårt.

Croc 2 is in alle opzichten beter dan het eerste deel. Het spel is een stuk moeilijker en dankzij een afwisselende gameplay en een vrolijke sfeer zal dit spel niet snel gaan vervelen. Kortom, een aanrader voor alle platform fans.

Croc 2 er ikke et spil, der vil tage verden med storm og revolutionere markedet for spil til Game Boy Color. Langt fra! Men pas alligevel på med helt at afskrive den lille nuttede dille. Spillet har en særlig charme, som specielt de yngre spillere vil kunne falde for, også selv om gameplayet bliver kedeligt i længden. For de lidt "større børn" er Croc 2 dog en noget vag og alt for tuttenuttet affære.

As a sequel, Croc 2 blows away the original effort produced by the development company responsible for giving the little guy life. Handing the game over to Natsume was a great move by THQ as the development team produced a title that's not exactly clich¿ or formula -- at least on the Game Boy Color. Natsume produced a decent adventure for the cute reptile, so don't let his first outing on the handheld taint your purchase decision -- this game is a good one.

Det här är ett bättre spel än Croc. Och ja, det är tillräckligt annorlunda för att vara köpvärt om du gillade originalet. Men det är väldigt krävande. Vårt betyg tar hänsyn till spelets värde för spelare som älskar utmaningar. Ni andra bör speltesta ordentligt först, för annars kanske ni ger er på något ni inte klarar av.

The graphics and sound effects add a tremendous amount of atmosphere and eye candy to the worlds of Gabbos. The game easily ranks up there with the best looking platformers available on the PSX to date. If you choose to go with this title be prepared to spend a LOT of time with it. For those who can persevere the game absolutely has its rewards, but unfortunately the initial difficulty factor may turn many gamers off and that would be a shame. I found Croc 2 to be an extremely challenging game and overall, worth the effort…it's just not something that I would necessarily go out of my way to do again.

Nach zwei Jahren macht sich Croc wieder auf den Weg, um den befreundeten Gobbos aus der Patsche zu helfen. Natürlich lauern unzählige Gefahren auf das knuddelige Krokodil mit den großen Kulleraugen. Der Anlass zu diesem Abenteuer ist die Wiederauferstehung des bösen Barons Dante, der mit seinen diabolischen Dantinis die braven, aber völlig hilflosen Gobbos tyrannisiert.

Allá por el año 97 aparecía para PlayStation un genial juego llamado Croc, un plataformas-aventura 3D protagonizado por un simpático cocodrilo. Aprovechando el tirón que tuvo aquel Argonaut nos trae su segunda parte.

THQ and Natsume has successful transformed Croc’s image on the GameBoy Color, from a poor game to a more than decent sequel. And, although Croc 2 will be enjoyed more so by a younger audience, many adult gamers out there should give this cute reptile a chance, cause you know, we are all kids at heart.

Croc 2 es una amplia aventura con 12 mundos y una diversidad de entretenidas misiones en las que iremos haciendo gala de nuestra memoria, paciencia, inteligencia o habilidad con el control.

One last thing, the large lands and overall game design of Croc, while not brilliant, are something to admire. The game is big and though arduous, it's filled with lots of baddies, new characters, entertaining looking bosses and a sense of space that the first Croc simply didn't have.

Croc 2 nous fait passer un bon moment sur la portable de Nintendo. Bénéficiant d'une bonne réalisation, mais ne révolutionnant pas le genre, ce titre se classe sans difficulté parmi les bons titres de la console.

Having said some pretty blunt things about Croc, I still enjoyed many aspects of the game. So, I guess if you were saving up your money just for this, you may want to wait and try your friend's game, or rent it first, before you dish out the cash. All I know is that if I didn't have to finish this game because of professional commitment, I wouldn't have done it.

WindowsGamer's Pulse
To sum it all up, I’d have to say that I really enjoyed playing Croc 2. While I’m definitely not a child anymore, its bright graphics, enchanting score, and moderately challenging gameplay grabbed hold of me and didn’t let go. If you’re a parent, or a fan of great 3D-Platform games, give Croc 2 a whirl - you’re sure to enjoy it.

Een vrolijk, uitgebreide platform-game die nog leuker had kunnen zijn geweest als de camerawerking niet zo irritant was geweest. Nu ga je te vaak onnodig de pijp uit waardoor je een echte Croc-adpet moet zijn, wil je het op kunnen brengen om de game te blijven spelen.

Wenn Sie hart und zäh sind oder das Leben Ihnen viel zu wenige Herausforderungen präsentiert, könnten Sie mit Croc 2 glücklich werden. Alternativ scharen Sie eine Gruppe Freunde um sich, die Ihnen beim 99. Sprung ins Leere seelischen Beistand leisten.

Despite some quirks, Croc 2 is certainly a strong title for the handheld system, offering solid, unique gameplay that doesn't show up often enough on the handheld. Anyone soured by the taste of THQ's first outing with this franchise on the Game Boy Color shouldn't shy away from this title.

Croc 2 pâtit donc beaucoup de son manque de jouabilité alors qu'il profite pourtant d'un moteur graphique de bonne facture et d'une longévité très importante. C'est dommage de gâcher un aussi bon jeu pour une histoire de gameplay...

With its cute storyline, Croc 2 is an entertaining but fairly unremarkable romp, especially suited for the younger gamer in the family.

While not graphically or thematically on par with such greats as Rayman 2, Croc 2 holds its own as a unique offering. Unfortunately, most gamers will likely find themselves alienated by the title's pervasive cuteness, although it arguably provides a nice counterpoint to the blood and guts that seeps its way into most of the industry's offerings. Given, the action isn't particularly innovative, but it still manages to be a rather compelling and relaxing jaunt. Although most of its platform-jumping and monster-stomping action has been seen before, its feel and main character inject enough personality into the game to warrant giving it a try.

Croc 2 looked like it would be a fun game from the box cover. The characters appeared to have a nice expressive quality to them. It looked like it was going to be a cute arcade-like Mario Brothers style game. I was pretty much correct in my assumptions.

Croc 2 ist allerliebst in Szene gesetzt. Dabei gefällt mir nicht nur die Grafik gut. Abwechslungsreiche Levels und witzige Mini-Spielchen sorgen eigentlich für jede Menge Motivation. Das Problem ist, daß die Entwickler nicht aus den Macken des Vorgängers gelernt haben. Das Kamerasystem sorgt immer noch durch unglückliche Blickwinkel für Ärger. Den Unterschied zwischen sicherem Sprung und sicherem Tod müssen Sie oft auf die unangenehme Art auswendig lernen, und Gesundheits-Auffrischer sind etwas zu dünn gesät. Insgesamt hält sich der Schwierigkeitsgrad allerdings gerade noch in Grenzen, zumal sich Croc 2 etwas gemächlicher spielt als vergleichbare Titel. Fazit: Nur hartgesottene Hüpfspiel-Fans sollten zugreifen, alle anderen entscheiden sich lieber für Rayman 2.

I sincerely expected more from Croc 2. As I already said, the first part offered a lot to its successor, yet the sequel failed to keep track with times and trends. We'll just have to see if Croc will succeed in maintaining popularity on PC, because his failure on console market is imminent thanks to Super Mario, Gex and alike. As for PCs, Rayman 2 still remains the favorite in the genre.

Cores! Jogabilidade acessível! Incansáveis jogos de aventura! Uma geração de games que não se esgota e que se esforça por manter a mesma estrutura de anos atrás. Os games deste gênero parecem muito simples para vários jogadores, mas a legião de fãs dos jogos de aventura parece estar muito longe de acabar. Ainda que outros gêneros dominem o mercado, eles estão lá, sempre com alguma surpresa diferente. E quando se trata em surpresas, nada melhor do que um novíssimo lançamento para se avaliar o quanto este gênero cresceu. Talvez o mais recente seja Croc 2, o segundo episódio da aventura de um crocodilo pra lá de divertido.

Croc 2 laisse finalement un petit goût de déception dans la bouche tant son gameplay aurait été perfectible. Il possède toutefois des graphismes d’un niveau sérieux qui lui confèrent par leurs couleur et leur aspect de dessin-animé un ton très sympathique. Un jeu qui aurait fait sans aucun doute le bonheur des plus jeunes d’entre nous, grâce à un personnage que l’on ne demanderait qu’à aimer s’il voulait bien effectuer des mouvements, pourtant simples, avec un peu plus d’efficacité…

Het spel mocht echter wel meer zijn; ik vrees dat de doelgroep - jonge kinderen - niet het geduld kan opbrengen dat voor dit spel nodig is. Conclusie: Rayman rules!

To enjoy Croc 2 as it's meant to be enjoyed, you pretty much have to have never played a platform game before, and certainly have never touched anything crafted by Miyamoto or the Rare kids on a good day. Kids will jump for the cuteness, the great music, and the funky voices, but they'll definitely be frustrated by the controls, and adults will ultimately be bored by the general straightforward hop and attack nature of the gameplay.

För oss som gillar rara spel där man löser problem, slåss bara lite grand och får upptäcka nya världar är Croc 2 klart kul, men det känns som att de kunde förbättrat grafiken mer sedan Croc.

I was about to say one million Playstation owners can't be wrong, but they're the ones who keep buying Tomb Raider games, so the validity of this statement is perhaps debatable! But although Croc 2 is not going to set the world alight, if you have a child or a younger sibling, or are indeed yourself looking for a nice arcade style game to while away some of those summer days, you could certainly do a lot worse on the PC.

A good game for kids, but grown-ups have better things to do.

By the halfway point of Croc 2, you'll have learned to tolerate the controls, circumvent the camera, and make Croc do your bidding, more or less. The entire package is blandly professional enough and provides enough consistent gameplay to avoid outright dismissal, but it clearly lacks the imaginative spark necessary to make playing it a memorable experience.

Что же, дорогие папы и мамы, а также их ненаглядные чада и родители (дедушки и бабушки). Все же не так уж и много в нашем мире более забавных и приятных трехмерных аркад, чем вторая часть приключений великолепного Крока. И даже не в звуковых эффектах и 3dfx-окружении дело. Нет, чистая и незапятнанная душа главного героя — вот залог постоянного интереса к этой игре у всех поклонников жанра, от мала до велика. Так играйте, играйте и еще раз играйте! А закончить нашу апологетическую речь хочется следующим призывом: "Мальчишки, девчонки, а также их родители! В безудержного Крока сыграть вы не хотите ли?!".

All in all, if Croc 2 had learned its perspective lessons and it wasn't so easy to get killed in the game, it'd end up at par with or perhaps even above games in the Crystal Dynamics' Gex league. It held promise, but once again two fatal flaws hold it down.

With the cutesy character you'd expect a game aimed at younger players, but the huge levels can actually get quite challenging even early on. Of course, this has it's dark side, too: Much of the challenge derives from terrible camera angles (which-get this-you can't change!), collision detection will sometimes just drop you right off a platform, and unresponsive controls (especially when jumping) that ensure plenty of tumbles into bottomless pits. This could have been a solid title, but as it is, it's more like a recipe for frustration.

Det är inte det att Croc 2 är dåligt, det är ganska roligt att gå runt på stranden och samla saker ett tag. Men det hela är så ofärdigt, som ett halvt spel som inte riktigt vet vilken genre det vill tillhöra. De uppenbara stölderna frå Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening blir efter ett tag bara skrattretande, och man inser att det faktiskt är ljusår mellan de två spelen.

PlayStationCincinnati Enquirer
Croc 2 is fun in moderation, the quick action and cute characters make for an enjoyable game when you've got a couple of minutes to kill. Unfortunately, the game's problems make it nearly impossible to play for any extended period of time.

PlayStationGame Revolution
Straight up, this is a sub-standard 3-D environment game, lacking originality and fun, looking to catch the little kids with its high cute factor. If you want an action game, this isn't the place to look.
