I had more fun with de Blob 2 than any other platformer since the original Super Mario Galaxy. It's not the most high-profile game on store shelves, but if you're in the market for a unique game with an awesome presentation and a great personality, you simply can't do any better than de Blob 2.
The improvements made in de Blob 2 make it a much stronger game than the first, but likely won't be enough to convince players who were jaded after the first game. If you enjoyed the first game and are raring for more, you should definitely check out the sequel, as it improves the game's weak aspects and highlights what's great about it.
De Blob 2 è un ottimo sequel che recupera e potenzia le caratteristiche vincenti del primo capitolo, aggiungendo qualche tocco innovativo utile a rendere il prodotto finale ancora più completo. Puntando dichiaratamente alla più ampia trasversalità in termini di bacino d'utenza, il titolo Blue Tongue scende inevitabilmente a compromessi per quel che concerne la profondità del gameplay e la complessità delle sfide offerte nel corso dell'avventura, ma si tratta comunque di un platform molto godibile, impeccabile dal punto di vista del design e che meriterebbe senz'altro un successo commerciale superiore a quanto registrato finora dal giovane franchise.
I was surprised by how much fun I had with De Blob 2, considering I had never played the first. It's catchy, easy to pick up, and pleasing enough to the eyes and ears to continue playing for hours at a time. It's not without flaws, however, including some niggling camera complaints and the checkpoint system that gets worse the further you play. Still, while these do affect the end result, it's hard not to recommend the game to someone who enjoys a light, color-filled platformer to spend time on.
To a certain extent, de Blob 2 isn't really for me, but I can appreciate its appeal. It gets a little repetitive after the fourth level or so, and for somebody like me who cut his teeth on Mario games, it's very easy. I don't know if I'd pick up this game for myself because it feels like I won just by pushing "start," but I wouldn't think twice about giving it to kids or new gamers. It's bright, colorful, well-designed, easy to learn and genuinely entertaining.
de Blob 2 isn't an exceptional platformer, but it is an exceptionally well done gaming world complete with eye popping and colorful visuals that are sure to excite everyone from fans of the original to the world of the new demographic the franchise targets. It may lose some of its difficulty, but it's so full of life, ingenuity and charm that it begs to be played.
Si le gameplay manque un peu d'originalité, le titre se rattrape en nous proposant une merveilleuse balade musicale. Faire interagir la bande-son avec l'explosion de couleurs qui se produit à l'écran est incontestablement une excellente idée. Au final, il s'agit donc d'un jeu rafraîchissant qui vous permettra de prendre un peu d'avance sur le printemps en apportant un peu de couleurs à votre quotidien.
De Blob 2 has great moments, when the music, the visuals, and the act of restoring color to the world all come together to create a sense of pure joy. These high points make the frustrations all the more disappointing; there are times when you experience the great game that de Blob 2 almost was. Nobody ever said starting a revolution would be easy, but de Blob 2 substitutes a punishing, uncharacteristic mean streak for real, satisfying challenge. You may be able to overlook these issues and still find the joy to be had in restoring color to the places and people of Prisma City, but not all your memories of this game will be groovy ones.
Giudicare secondo criteri oggettivi de Blob 2 è compito arduo, perché insieme riesce ad essere fresco e monotono, trascinante e tedioso. Quale parte prevale sul giocatore è di certo fattore soggettivo, ma i difetti della struttura di gioco sono tanti e tali da non poter passar sotto silenzio. E allora il titolo Blue Tongue si presenta forse come un'occasione, che più doveva aggiungere e variare rispetto al predecessore; ma anche senza il confronto, rimane un titolo troppo semplicistico e privo di particolari spunti nel gameplay.
