Talk about a surprise. Frogger 2's not just a respectable update to a geriatric franchise, it's also one of the best platformers to grace the PlayStation so far this year. Let this be a lesson to budding developers that one needn't reinvent the wheel to produce a high caliber game. When it comes down to mass market hits, like the saying says, history has a funny way of repeating itself.
Considering how much gameplay concepts have evolved since 1997, and how saturated the PSX market is in 2000, "Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge" offers mild entertainment but nothing too deep or significant for the money. Rent it, beat it, and forget about it until the kids ask for another easy, disposable gameplaying experience for PSX. If you have access to it though, go for the Dreamcast version instead (same game, much better-looking graphics).
All Game Guide
Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge is a simple, fun game that won't tax anyone for too long. Its controls are easy, and although most players will get through it in a couple days, it's worth the ride. Or the hop, as it were.
Frogger 2 is a worthy sequel, because it improves upon what worked in the original, downplays what didn't work, and in the end delivers a game that is better than the original. Unfortunately, while all the other pieces come together flawlessly, the lack of replay keeps the game from achieving greatness. That said, puzzle gamers looking for a quality weekend rental need look no further than Frogger 2.
