Ty the Tasmanian Tiger makes no effort in hiding its influences. This is a Crash Bandicoot clone through and through. But at least it's done in a manner that flatters the source material extremely well. There's item collecting, a hub world connecting several elemental mini-worlds, and lots of characters full of personality. Not quite on the same level as say, something from Naughty Dog or Rare, Krome Studios own attempt at platforming is still enough to warrant a purchase from diehard genre fans. Deserving of a multi-hour play test. Check it out.

With nothing new to bring to the table, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is an average platform game that is still entertaining enough. I suggest you rent this one before purchasing it.

All in all, Ty is a decent game for beginners looking for a solid platform experience. While it has good graphics, awesome sound and decent play, the brevity of gameplay winds up selling this title short in the end. This may be perfect for your little brother or sister as you try to indoctrinate them to the world of game playing, but for wily vets looking for a solid platform, you'll probably wind up looking elsewhere.

What ultimately may influence your decision to purchase the game is its length. There are only 17 levels in the game, and while the nine main levels are very large, the others aren't very complex. Trying to find all the optional collectible items, of which there are many, will take some time, but ignoring them and making a dedicated run from the start of the game to the final battle will take less than 10 hours and even as little as four or five hours for some.

Ty : le Tigre de Tasmanie affiche de réelles ambitions qui se traduisent par une réalisation très cartoon et un gameplay inspiré des meilleurs jeux de plates-formes sur consoles. Les challenges manquent pourtant un peu d'intérêt et d'originalité, et le faible niveau de difficulté le destine clairement aux plus jeunes joueurs. Les autres le considéreront à juste titre comme moins prioritaire que Jak & Daxter ou Ratchet & Clank.

Gameplanet
It's a bright, colourful, fun, low-stress game that lacks originality, but makes up for that with sheer charm, and the great execution of tried and tested 3D platform/adventure game elements.

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger ends up being a very standard platform game marred by a wonky camera. Still, the vast levels that take a while to fully explore offer a lot of gameplay for the buck.

And if that still sounds entertaining to you, then good luck to you and Ty. You truly deserve one another. The rest of us will get along just fine with dozens of other much better games, thanks.
