In the end, Tomba! 2 turns out to be a very satisfying game. It's deep, it looks great, and it added so much to what the original started. If that's not enough for you, there is still nothing more amusing that seeing what Tomba does to those poor little pigs.

Tomba 2 may be a repackaging of the original game, but it's a slick and refined one at that. Fans of the original game are in for a treat, but not enough has changed to make the game attractive to those who didn't click with the original.

La vuelta de Tombi a PlayStation resultó un acontecimiento casi inesperado para muchos jugadores que disfrutaron con las aventuras en busca de la pulsera del abuelo. Mantenía la idea original de un mundo libre en dos dimensiones con muchos secretos y misiones que completar que definían el estilo de juego que tanto gustó en el original. Sin embargo, como se suele decir "segundas partes nunca fueran buenas", y esto se traduce en una gran pérdida de su encanto pero sin llegar a ser artísticamente horrible. El paso de los sprites a los polígonos, los añadidos a los personajes clásicos, los nuevos personajes sin encanto y una historia bastante reutilizada como la de salvar a la novia del protagonista resultan demasiado grandes como para poder decir que mantiene la esencia del original que lo llevó al puesto de título de culto.

It's the kind of stuff we want to see from a good sequel: More of what we loved, lots of improvements, and more polish. We'd love to see the quest-based gameplay taken into free-roaming 3D - maybe that's something Whoopee Camp has up its sleeve for the inevitable sequel? We can only hope.

Un titre qui ne décevra pas les accros du premier épisode. Sans pour autant entrer dans la légende Tombi ! 2 reste un très bon jeu qui réjouira petits et grands en leur proposant ce qu’il faut d’action et de réflexion dans un grand jeu d’aventure.

Tomba! 2 may be a hard game to explain, but it's an easy game to like. Its off-the-wall theme and storyline should keep you interested long after most other games would wear off, and the multitude of quests will keep you busy for a long, long time. If you're looking for a bizarre, cartoony and fun adventure, take a look at Tomba! 2.

Fans of the original will jump on Tomba 2: The Evil Swine Return like nasty pigs on a diabolical scheme. Others may not be so excited. Whether you love him or hate him, you have to agree that Tomba is a pretty big badass for a pink-haired fellow with a goggle-eyed flying bug for a best friend.

Overall, Tomba 2: The Evil Swine Return is a worthy title for the PlayStation. Recommended to anyone who likes platformers, and who isn’t turned off by off-the-wall wackiness. It’ll definitely keep you busy for a long time, although you will probably want to turn the sound off after a while.

Wie het eerste deel van Tombi leuk vond, zal zijn vingers aflikken bij deze opvolger, die er een stuk beter uitziet en ook een stuk lekkerder speelt. Toch zorgen de vele tussenopdrachtjes en de niet helemaal vrije 3D-omgevingen ervoor dat de game niet lekker in één keer doorspeelt.

Tobi har vuxit till sig, vaccinerat sig mot barnsjukdomarna och kommit in i puberteten. Istället för en påklistrad fasad har spelet blivit oberoende och säreget. Whoopee Camp har hittat sin nisch och vidareutvecklat den på sitt eget sätt. De stirrar sig inte längre blinda på Nintendo och Sega. Och har de plagierat så har de gjort det med stil. Tombi 2 rekommenderas varmt till alla som gillar plattformsspel med substans.

It never quite lives up to its promise, but fans with a lot of patience are in for a satisfying romp.
