Il ne manque à Toy Story 2 que quelques niveaux pour faire durer le plaisir.
Disney-Fans und alle Freunde der Zelluloidvorlage werden sich in diesem Spiel sehr schnell heimisch fühlen. Wer Jump&Runs mit riesigen Locations und einigen eingestreuten Rätseleinlagen mag, wird sicherlich nicht von Toy Story 2 enttäuscht sein.
Toy Story 2 is a fun, if flawed adventure. The gameplay is solid, but some video and snazzier graphics would have been nice. If you're looking for an easy-to-jump-into game that won't have you swearing at the screen, this isn't a bad choice. And as far as games from movies go, it's no Goldeneye 007, but it probably won't be as bad as the upcoming Crying Game 64.

I look at this game as a solid platformer that only has some minor flaws. The sound was probably the weakest area, but it definitely isn't crucial for this game. It just would've been the icing on the cake. Also, a multi-player mode would've been a nice throw-in even though most people would probably just view it as that, a throw-in. Other than these things and a couple minor glitches, the game is solid and has sharp graphics, slick control, Rumble Pak compatibility and plenty of gameplay to get through. You could probably get through the game somewhat quickly, but to get everything it will take effort that only Buzz Lightyear can provide.
If you love the movie Toy Story 2 and haven't played too many of the 3D platform games out there on the N64 then add this title to your library. But for me, this game wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
In the end, the game is good, even with its shortcomings. Whether you've seen the movie or not, Toy Story 2, as a game, stands on its own because it offers gameplay. It's not complicated or sexy, and, in fact, the N64 game isn't all that attractive or well designed. But it is possible to have fun with it. If you are a fan of the Pixar films, the game struggles to deliver the same experience in video-game format - largely due to the missing fmv cutscenes. The shortcomings, however, aren't enough to take away an entertaining movie-to-video-game effort. It's well worth a rental.
Mais alors qu'on aurait pu s'attendre à une version N64 bien plus aboutie graphiquement que la version Play, on est rapidement déçu. Les graphismes sont non seulement flous mais aussi tout pixelisés et bien tristounets par rapport à la version Play. Même le jeu s'en ressent avec des baisses de framerate assez sensibles. Quand en plus, bien évidemment, les superbes scènes cinématiques de la version PSX ont été secouées et remplacées par des images statiques avec textes explicatifs, on se sent floué à jouer à cette version, une version définitivement moins travaillée que sur Play.
If you want a groundbreaking three-dimensional platformer, you're looking in the wrong place, bub. Closest thing to that for the N64 now is Donkey Kong 64. Even the most fanatic of Toy Story fans will see straight through this game... the unoriginality and outdated-ness coupled with the poor graphics and weak frame rate send this straight to the bargain bins. If you want to follow the exploits of Buzz Lightyear, go watch the movie and leave this one at the toy store.
