Mystical Ninja 2 doit faire partie de votre collection aux côtés de Mario et Banjo. À condition bien sûr d'affectionner les jeux de plate-forme. Super-méga hit !

I enjoyed GGA immensely. If you're a fan of the Ganbare Goemon Series, get out and buy it now. If you're not, rent it, and see if you can handle its wackiness before you decide to buy it. The only flaws I can see is the absence of the Japanese vocal tracks, and maybe a few more worlds would have been nice. But still, GGA is an innovative, enjoyable game. I love you Konami.

Un second Goemon qui change complètement de la version précédente. Adieu la 3D, on reprend le même esprit que dans les vieux épisodes sur Snes.

Ansonsten ist Mystical Ninja 2 so, wie es von vielen Fans erwünscht war: Sowohl das Leveldesign als auch die Rätsel sind gleichermaßen interessant und herausfordernd, eine unterhaltsame Story führt Euch durchs Spiel, und es gibt endlich wieder einen Zweispieler-Modus. Ihr könnte Euren Partner sogar Huckepack nehmen und so höher gelegene Plattformen erreichen. Wie immer haben die Entwickler einen Löffel Humor beigemischt, der, ebenfalls wie immer, nicht jedermanns Geschmack trifft. Insgesamt bekommt Ihr ein exzellentes 2D-Jump&Run und endlich eine Alternative zu Yoshi's Story. Mit Liebe gemacht.

Goemon's Great Adventure följer i stort sett standardmallen för plattformsäventyr. Som så många gånger förut handlar det om att hoppa, slå och skjuta sig genom massor av banor. Samtidigt som man mellan varven ska lösa lite problem och samla på sig viktiga föremål. Vad som däremot skiljer spelet från de flesta andra i genren är att det helt och hållet lever på sitt innehåll. Trist tycker somliga. Andra kallas det kvalitet.
Mega Fun
Schon der erste Teil hat mir wirklich großen Spaß gemacht, was ich ebenfalls für den Nachfolger sagen kann. Die völlige Bewegungsfreiheit des Vorgängers wurde zu Gunsten eines klar strukturierten Spielverlaufs verworfen, was nun ein gestrafftes Gesamtbild zeigt. In den Städten lassen sich Gespräche mit allen Bürgern führen, die einem immer wieder kleine Infos geben, und außerhalb der sicheren Zonen geht es richtig deftig zur Sache. Die Grafik als auch die musikalische Untermalung sind wie gewohnt gut geraten und runden das japanische Flair bestens ab. Fazit: Mit Einschränkungen präsentiert sich Goemon 2 als guter Nachfolger, der an einer organisierten Linie festhält.
All told, this game throws five areas at you, each broken up into several levels, and it's enough to hold any old-schooler for quite a while. If you're more accustomed to 3D fun, this might not be for you, but I say fun is fun. Now, if only more companies would start coming around.
Nintendo Life
While there’s arguably a slight spark of magic missing in comparison with its simply enchanting predecessor Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, this is still undoubtedly a great game in its own right. Providing a brilliantly entertaining combination of colourful visuals, great level design, crazy characters, fast-paced platforming action, a wonderfully upbeat and diverse soundtrack and the added bonus of a co-op mode, Goemon's Great Adventure is essential for anyone searching for a more traditional platforming experience on their N64 – just don’t expect an easy ride!
Points off for editing all the cool songs out of the US version, but Goemon's Great Adventure still emerges as Konami's best Goemon game since Goemon 2 and the translation is much more faithful than Mystical Ninja and co. A funny, addictive co-op adventure that every 2D platform game fan should add to his collection.
Nintendo Power Magazine
Fans of Japanese animation and diehard Goemon backers, are due for a treat. Yes, the story is a weird mix of sci-fi, Japanese culture and superheroes, but it seems perfectly suited to the game. And the game game is full of action and variety, Finally, a sidescroller done right on the N64.
Goemon and company make their return to the N64 with the release of Goemon’s Great Adventure. The nutty Japanese voices and names coupled with some very different music tracks makes Goemon’s Great Adventure a somewhat lackluster one. If you enjoyed the first Goemon on the Nintendo 64, you’ll probably enjoy Goemon’s Great Adventure even more. On the other hand, if you loathed the first Goemon, you’ll probably loathe it’s sequel.
GamePro (US)
The game is set up in a pseudo-non-linear fashion. After you clear an area once, you can go to Lost'n Town and receive a quest to return to on old area and find certain items or defeat certain enemies under a certain time limit. This goes a long way toward replay value, but you're still playing the same levels over and over, and that gets old quick.

After several bouts of cursing and sobbing, I have successfully completed Goemon's Great Adventure. I have determined that the adventure was not, in fact, as great as I had imagined. The cartridge has now returned safely to my shelf, where I shall never touch it again, except for moving day and shelf vacuuming day.

Helaas hebben ze de plank helemaal mis geslagen want MN2 is een suffe platformgame. Ik wil er dan ook niet te veel woorden aan vuilmaken. Laat MN2 lekker in de winkel liggen, zelfs al ben je een Goemon-fan.
