Ce deuxième épisode est comme le premier Jazz Jackrabbit, c'est-à-dire excellent. En reprenant le gameplay de l'épisode précédant mais en y apportant quelques subtilités et surtout en ajoutant un mode multijoueur assez complet, Epic Games a sorti une suite digne de ce nom à cette licence aujourd'hui oubliée de certains. Son univers cartoonesque, son gameplay efficace et son multi font que Jazz Jackrabbit 2 mérite amplement d'être joué. Grâce à ce jeu, le lapin vert peut garder une fois de plus la tête haute face au plombier rouge et au hérisson bleu.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 has done a wonderful job in resurrecting the age of the 2D side-scroller. It combines great visuals, imaginative gameplay, and great audio into a package that's sure to please the gamers both old and young. In spite of its bug problems and horridly written manual, I would most definitely recommend this game to any household with children getting started on the computer. I would also recommend that everyone else at least go download the demo and give it a chance. This is a great game people: no 3D engines, no blood and guts, no nightmares of horrible mutilation; just a downright FUN game.
With fun, addicting gameplay, wonderful graphics, a great soundtrack and a full assortment of multiplayer options, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is an excellent game for anyone with a desire for entertainment.
OK, so it's a sidescroller, and these days that seems old fashioned. But it works. The graphics are vivid and charming, the sound effects are cool, the music is upbeat—it's addictive fun. Jazz and Spaz seem to be geared more toward the teen and younger market than to hard-core players. So parents can relax: While there's violence aplenty, it's all of the harmless cartoon variety.
The graphics in Jazz 2 are just average. While it supports millions of colors, many of the graphics are so small that characters and enemies seem overly simplified. The quick-moving game took a few minutes to become accustomed to, with its tiny graphics and darting speed. The music is very well executed however, featuring CD-quality sound.
If you've got some young kids in the household, Jazz 2 is a decent title for your PowerMac, but we older gamers have been there and we've done that.
Logicware's Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is a nice throwback to the 16 bit games of the early 90s. With its frantic, colorful action and constant barrage of noise and music, it seems that the only thing missing is the singsong "Sega" announced when the game's turned on. The developers took the nostalgic approach all the way to the splash screens, dressing up Jazz as Prince from his "Purple Rain" days (the Jackrabbit formerly known as Jazz?) and as Michael J. Fox ala "Back to the Future." Former Sega owners will also recall that Sonic's buddy Tails made his first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Jazz is now in his second chapter, so he also gets a companion, his little brother Spaz.
