Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue bears the nomenclature of a sequel. Nonetheless he is still a newcomer at breaking free from the shadow cast by Jax, Sly and Ratchet who catch the lion's share of the limelight. With those stars also back in their annual outings it won't be any easier this time around. In response to the challenge, the Aussie cat has really stepped up his effort to turn in an effort worthy of standing up there alongside the big boys.

Ty 2 is a very good mascot platformer but not a great one. However, it actually took me a while to realize just why it wasn't great, and when it finally occurred to me, this revelation taught me something that makes me glad I played this game, as I believe it's made me a better game critic. Really, I'm serious.

It’s been awhile since we last caught up with a certain furry hero from the Australian Outback and it’s about time he made a comeback. Ty the Tasmanian Tiger joined just a small handful of platform games on the Xbox but it was, much like Dr. Muto or even Voodoo Vince, a memorable platform game with a charismatic hero and some pretty innovative ideas. So as a fan of platformers it was great to see that EA has released a sequel. Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue puts us back in the land down under with Australian mechs (now that’s something we don’t get to see very often, Aussie mechs) and a much bigger world to explore.

The time to bust out all of the developers heavy artillery is finally upon us. From this point on gamers will see a flood of games being released, and many of them are AAA quality games that many people have been looking forward to for a couple years now. EA has decided to create a sequel to their original game: Ty the Tasmanian Tiger game. Is this game better than last years game, and have what it takes to compete with the “heavy hitter’s” coming out over the next few weeks? Read on to find out!

What a title, eh? EA Games and Krome Studios released the first Ty game in the fall of 2002 to little fanfare given the cheer abundance of platformers released during that year. Nearly every publisher released a platformer but in the end only a few came out victorious, two notable examples being Sony’s Jak and Ratchet series. Some critics even went as far as claiming that the platform genre was in danger of being extinct. Thankfully, that never happened and EA Games and Krome Studios have once again stepped up with a cute, solid and most different of all (considering that this is an EA Games release) a $20 price tag.

Overall, the gaming experience found when playing Ty 2 was surprisingly challenging at times. I came into Ty 2 expecting a children's game, and left with the impression that only people that have played platformers before should play this. Electronic Arts can now proudly say it has a platforming mascot, though its splendor won't match that of Mario, Ratchet & Clank, or Sly Cooper. At least, not yet.

The Tasmanian tiger is back! And this time he's got a larger quest, a super-low price, and a mini-game that'll blow your mind.

Zwar bleibt Ty auch bei seinem zweiten Auftritt vergleichsweise blass und unspektakulär, weniger anspruchsvolle Genrefans und Sparfüchse sollten aber dennoch einen Blick riskieren. Schließlich bekommt ihr für knapp 30 Euro durchaus solide und abwechslungsreiche Jump'n'Run-Kost in Down Under geboten, bei der ihr euch nicht nur mit einem breit gefächerten Arsenal an Bumerangs durchs Australische Outback kämpft, sondern auch als Helikopterpilot aushelft, an lukrativen Kartrennen teilnehmt oder in riesigen Mech-Ungetümen durch die Gegend stapft. Hin und wieder kommt es allerdings vor, dass sich Kamera und Kollisionsabfrage gegen euch verschwören und aus einer einfachen Kletterpartie einen frustrierenden Hüpfmarathon machen. Wer sich davon nicht abschrecken lässt, dürfte mit dem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis jedoch ziemlich zufrieden sein - auch wenn die USK die Hauptzielgruppe mit ihrer Freigabe ab 12 Jahren eigentlich ausschließt...

Though getting through Ty 2 is particularly easy, it would likely be enough of a challenge for younger players to make this a good gateway game. The same humor, scripting, and play mechanics that feel childish to experienced players will be new and entertaining to those without experience. EA is such a powerhouse that we automatically expect its platformers to follow suit, but in this case, adding a solid (budget priced) game to the small stable of truly kid-friendly games is good enough.

Als je echt een grote fan van het genre bent is het misschien nog wel de moeite om deze titel in budgetvorm uit de winkelrekken te halen, voor andere gamers is het zeker wel is leuk om eens een weekendje gaan te huren, maar daar blijft het dan ook bij. In ieder geval voor de mensen met een zoontje, dochtertje, petekind, neefje, nichtje,... dat graag videogames speelt, dit is de perfecte titel om bij de Sint te bestellen (mijn schoentje staat al klaar) of om tegen het eindejaar onder kerstboom te leggen. Ty 2 is zeker en vast geen grootse titel. Ondanks dat het me zeker niet wist te imponeren is het verre van een slechte game, alles zit leuk en verzorgd in elkaar voor een weekendje aan puur platformplezier.

The Tasmanian Tiger may be extinct, but this video game tiger is making a comeback! Ty's modern day Australian world is populated by walking, talking ‘Down Under' critters like koalas and kangaroos. One fateful day, Ty's arch-nemesis Boss Cass escapes from prison, ready to wreak havoc on the Outback once again with his army of frilled lizards. Ty and his friends form the Bush Rescue Agency hoping to foil Boss Cass' plans for good. It's up to Ty to save the day!

On the scale of cute and cuddly anthropomorphic platformer characters, EA and developer Krome Studios' Ty the Tasmanian Tiger isn't exactly up there in terms of notoriety. Ty's original (and only) self-titled adventure, released back in 2002, was a good, though unremarkable platformer that had some endearing characters and generally inoffensive but unspectacular gameplay. It was also largely aimed at a younger gaming audience, which pretty much explains all of that right away. Ty's latest title comes in the form of Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue, and for the most part, it follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, treading over mostly well-worn platforming territory and aiming its sights squarely on younger gamers. And as a game for kids, Ty 2 is perfectly serviceable. However, more discerning players probably won't get much out of it.

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is the sequel to the 2002 platformer Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, a game who's titular hero was a furry denizen of the Austalian Outback. Developer Krome Studios crafted both games as lighthearted platformers in the tradition of the Spyro and Crash Bandicoot series, albeit set in a whimsical version of Australia. The first game offered decent challenges and fun, although somewhat tired, platform action. It also catered to younger gamers through its style and general lack of difficulty.

I considered littering the introduction to this review with all sorts of Australian quips and catch phrases. Since I only know "G'day mate" and "That's not a knife..." I decided against it.

Once upon a time, Naughty Dog was king of the personality-driven platformer. That hasn't changed, exactly, but its games have evolved considerably, leaving a vacuum where Crash Bandicoot used to be. EA tried to step into the light two years ago with the Aussie adventurer known as Ty, who headlined in an easy game that was nonetheless accomplished enough to please the kids and a few dedicated platform fans. Ty The Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue extends the series, essentially offering more of the same, though spreading it out over a much more open storyline.

Ty 2 starts out strong, with a thrilling introductory sequence. For a second, I thought, "Wow, this is going to rock!". Sadly, this bracing opening is just a mirage, as the game quickly bogs down into a tired mix of poorly executed minigame sequences thrown in for the sake of "variety" (the helicopter controls are pretty annoying and the new cart racing mode is dire) and standard-issue platforming "pizza delivery" missions.

Bottom line, this game is simply not worth taking the time to play. If you really feel the need to check it out, I highly suggest renting it- if you’re a competent enough gamer to turn on your Xbox, you can finish this in a weekend. This game may not be the worst game in the world, but when you take a look at the competition in the action adventure genre right now, Ty’s flaws seem more dire.

I have to start this review off with a small confession. Over the past few years, I have done more than my fair share of Ty bashing. Any time my friends and I would have a discussion about failed video game characters, I always brought up Ty the Tasmanian Tiger. Whenever we would talk about games that would probably never be made, I usually chimed in with Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2. In short, Ty was the punchline to almost every video game-related joke I’ve told in the recent past.

Uninspired is the word that describes this game and it’s the reason why most gamers looked over this series. However, the second Ty game isn’t that bad. Controls and mechanics save this game from mediocrity and fans of platformers will have a good time with it. Coupled with its relatively easy difficulty, Ty 2 is the perfect power down game. After the high tension of a blockbuster game like God of War, it’s nice to pop in this game to just relax your nerves and clear your head as you senselessly whack enemies and traverse the dusty outback.

Ty 2: Bush Rescue is a colorful platform game that, despite its flaws, should nonetheless appeal to gamers too young to enjoy titles like Jak III or Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal. The budget price also helps ease the decision-making process, and those who love collecting trinkets will be in heaven with this game. The kart-racing mode is another nice diversion for youngsters (though it’s just a single race on a choice of seven courses), and the explorable areas are diverse enough to keep the wee ones occupied. Yet if you’re tall enough to ride the bumper cars at the local amusement park, it’s best to leave this game where it takes place: Down Under.

Ty 2 is as generic as a platformer can be. It's a game in the tradition of the original Jak & Daxter, but comparing the two is like holding a light to the abyss. Ty 2 has you doing action after action with no real challenge, and while the production values are commendable, no one over the age of about eight will want much to do with it. There's not even that much to say about it. It's just... average to play. Feel safe to buy this for your kids, mate. In no way pass over the wonga for it yourself.
