I had more fun with de Blob 2 than any other platformer since the original Super Mario Galaxy. It's not the most high-profile game on store shelves, but if you're in the market for a unique game with an awesome presentation and a great personality, you simply can't do any better than de Blob 2.

de Blob 2 is a great game that now has the chance to be experienced by a wider audience thanks to its multiplatform status. The casual platformer is much easier this time around, but it's still an enjoyable experience. The addition of co-op makes it something younger kids could get into easily. The wonderful musical mechanic is still in place, with a soundtrack that's just as good as the original, and the brightly colored world garners favorable notice in a gaming landscape filled with drab and dark colors. Fans of more offbeat platformers will certainly enjoy painting the town red — or any color they want.

The improvements made in de Blob 2 make it a much stronger game than the first, but likely won't be enough to convince players who were jaded after the first game. If you enjoyed the first game and are raring for more, you should definitely check out the sequel, as it improves the game's weak aspects and highlights what's great about it.

De Blob 2 è un ottimo sequel che recupera e potenzia le caratteristiche vincenti del primo capitolo, aggiungendo qualche tocco innovativo utile a rendere il prodotto finale ancora più completo. Puntando dichiaratamente alla più ampia trasversalità in termini di bacino d'utenza, il titolo Blue Tongue scende inevitabilmente a compromessi per quel che concerne la profondità del gameplay e la complessità delle sfide offerte nel corso dell'avventura, ma si tratta comunque di un platform molto godibile, impeccabile dal punto di vista del design e che meriterebbe senz'altro un successo commerciale superiore a quanto registrato finora dal giovane franchise.

Dennoch verpasst de Blob 2 systemübergreifend die Chance, im Konzert der ganz großen Sprunghelden mitzuspielen. Dafür ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad einfach zu niedrig. Bis auf viel zu wenige Ausnahmen wird man weder in der umfangreichen 3D-Welt noch in den neuen seitwärts scrollenden Abschnitten gefordert. Das ist umso bedauerlicher, da das Team um Mike Haggis im Umfeld viel richtig gemacht hat: Der Umfang ist mit 15 bis 18 Stunden üppig, das Artdesign überzeugt und Charme ist Blob und seinen Freunden ohnehin nicht abzusprechen. Da man sich gegen Ende bei Elementen aus Super Mario Galaxy bedient, hätte man sich auch hinsichtlich des Schwierigkeitsgrades am sprunggewaltigen Nintendo-Klempner orientieren können. Dort wird gezeigt, dass Anspruch und Familienunterhaltung sich nicht ausschließen müssen.

I was surprised by how much fun I had with De Blob 2, considering I had never played the first. It's catchy, easy to pick up, and pleasing enough to the eyes and ears to continue playing for hours at a time. It's not without flaws, however, including some niggling camera complaints and the checkpoint system that gets worse the further you play. Still, while these do affect the end result, it's hard not to recommend the game to someone who enjoys a light, color-filled platformer to spend time on.

To a certain extent, de Blob 2 isn't really for me, but I can appreciate its appeal. It gets a little repetitive after the fourth level or so, and for somebody like me who cut his teeth on Mario games, it's very easy. I don't know if I'd pick up this game for myself because it feels like I won just by pushing "start," but I wouldn't think twice about giving it to kids or new gamers. It's bright, colorful, well-designed, easy to learn and genuinely entertaining.

de Blob 2 isn't an exceptional platformer, but it is an exceptionally well done gaming world complete with eye popping and colorful visuals that are sure to excite everyone from fans of the original to the world of the new demographic the franchise targets. It may lose some of its difficulty, but it's so full of life, ingenuity and charm that it begs to be played.

De Blob is a charming way to pass some time, but a few camera niggles and repetitive levels mar what could have been a superb title. As it is there is still plenty to appreciate here for young and old, plus the characters and cutscenes are good for a chuckle as well. Overall this is a refreshingly vibrant platformer that provides a welcome change of pace.

Entretenido, vistoso y simpático, adecuado para todas las edades, aunque demasiado fácil para un jugador experimentado, y que puede servirnos para relajarnos y disfrutar de su colorido sin complejos. Su mayor problema es caer en la monotonía, ser algo repetitivo, lo que se nota al jugar durante una larga sesión, ya que acabas con la sensación de estar haciendo siempre lo mismo, y le hubiera sentado de maravilla algo más de variedad, arriesgar un poco en lo jugable, lo que sí hace en el terreno artístico. Pero aun con esto es un título muy agradable, un soplo de aire fresco en medio del chaparrón de shooters llenos de violencia que vamos a recibir en los próximos días, y aunque no sea un plataformas puro, conseguirá satisfacer a los amantes de estos.

de Blob 2 is a wonderfully charismatic title that oozes at the seams with personality and fun. With all of the tree-trunk space marines and war veterans flooding consoles lately, it is always nice to see a well put-together platformer that dares to try something new, and succeeds. Fans of platform games will find a lot to love, even with the problems. If you are in the mood to paint the town red, literally, de Blob 2 is definitely for you.

A solid game for kids that adults will probably enjoy as well. The game play is a little repetitive but it's something that everyone will find enjoyable.

De Blob 2 risulta essere un titolo carismatico e interessante, con meccaniche di gioco estremamente divertenti, un personaggio che non potrà non entrare nel vostro cuore e un comparto audio di spessore. L'estrema accessibilità pensata probabilmente per i più piccoli penalizza però adulti e giocatori navigati: un po’ più lungo e difficile sarebbe stato un must.

Si le gameplay manque un peu d'originalité, le titre se rattrape en nous proposant une merveilleuse balade musicale. Faire interagir la bande-son avec l'explosion de couleurs qui se produit à l'écran est incontestablement une excellente idée. Au final, il s'agit donc d'un jeu rafraîchissant qui vous permettra de prendre un peu d'avance sur le printemps en apportant un peu de couleurs à votre quotidien.

I would firmly say that de Blob 2 is not a bad game. It’s not a great one either, but it definitely has it’s perks. The platforming is solid, even if other parts of the game lacking, and it accomplishes everything that it sets out to do. SyFy Kids may be publishing the game in tandem with THQ, explicitly leading to some calling it childish, I would hardly make such a distinction. If the bright colors, cartoony graphics, and silly nature of de Blob 2 mean that hardcore gamers can’t enjoy it, I’d say that Ratchet & Clank should fall in the game category. Sure it isn’t perfect, but that doesn’t mean that Blob’s second outing isn’t a good time.

Overall de Blob 2 is a real mixed bag. There is definitely a fun, solid game there but it is held back by a number of frustrating issues. Charming, but ultimately flawed.

De Blob 2 has great moments, when the music, the visuals, and the act of restoring color to the world all come together to create a sense of pure joy. These high points make the frustrations all the more disappointing; there are times when you experience the great game that de Blob 2 almost was. Nobody ever said starting a revolution would be easy, but de Blob 2 substitutes a punishing, uncharacteristic mean streak for real, satisfying challenge. You may be able to overlook these issues and still find the joy to be had in restoring color to the places and people of Prisma City, but not all your memories of this game will be groovy ones.

de Blob 2 repose sur les acquis de son prédécesseur et n'offre finalement que peu de nouveautés. Le plaisir de redonner vie et couleur à un monde sinistré séduit toujours autant, grâce notamment à une bande son exceptionnelle et un personnage principal très attachant. Vous aurez vite à cœur de jouer avec les couleurs. Un titre frais pour boucler cet hiver trop long.

Giudicare secondo criteri oggettivi de Blob 2 è compito arduo, perché insieme riesce ad essere fresco e monotono, trascinante e tedioso. Quale parte prevale sul giocatore è di certo fattore soggettivo, ma i difetti della struttura di gioco sono tanti e tali da non poter passar sotto silenzio. E allora il titolo Blue Tongue si presenta forse come un'occasione, che più doveva aggiungere e variare rispetto al predecessore; ma anche senza il confronto, rimane un titolo troppo semplicistico e privo di particolari spunti nel gameplay.

Inutile de jouer les gros durs : oui, Blob est trop mignon. C'est un fait. Et son petit monde chamarré, son concept rafraîchissant ainsi que sa bande-son interactive so groovy réussiraient, une fois de plus, à attendrir le plus hardcore des amateurs de FPS. Malheureusement, si le charme hérité du premier opus demeure intact, de Blob 2 traine derrière lui les même boulets qui avaient empêché son prédécesseur d'accéder au statut de grand jeu. Ainsi, si l'on appréciera une durée de vie honorable et l'apparition de passages typiquement "plates-formes" plutôt sympathiques, on ne pourra que déplorer une frilosité certaine de la part de Blue Tongue qui livre ici une suite sans réelle évolution. Toujours aussi facile, vite répétitif, affublé d'une caméra malhabile et d'un gameplay qui montre vite ses limites, le titre tourne rapidement en rond, trop engoncé dans la certitude qu'il suffit simplement d'une bonne idée pour faire un bon jeu.

Tous les ingrédients du premier opus sont réunis : un principe original de "coloriage" de niveaux en musiques groovy "interactives", des cinématiques super rigolotes, une bonne humeur générale et une réalisation très correcte... Mais de Blob 2 ne nous surprendra jamais autant que son prédécesseur, l'effet de surprise est passé et cette suite souffre surtout d'un mauvais rythme, d'une répétitivité qui se fait vite sentir et qui lasse dès les premiers niveaux. Dommage pour ceux qui l'attendaient de pied ferme, même s'il reste un jeu de plateforme pour le moins original, qui a toujours de belles qualités et surtout beaucoup de charme.
