The game graphics are pretty fast and colorfull. With 3D accelerator you will able to run the game at 1280x1024, but game is very good playable also at 640x480 without 3D hardware acceleration! Its really pretty cool game, you must have it! :)

Damn Blitz Games and Hasbro for their insight into the workings of platformer fans' minds. Curse them for their high production values and commitment to overcome the sophomore jinx. May they rue the day they ever took a tinkle on the critics' claims of butchering a geriatric franchise. With Frogger 2 on the market, ain't nobody age 10 and up gonna be gettin' any sleep this holiday season.

Drama am Froschtümpel: Oberbösewicht Swampy hat Froggers Nachwuchs entführt und sich mit den Babyfröschen aus dem Staub gemacht. Das kann der grüne Hüpfer natürlich nicht auf sich sitzen lassen und macht sich prompt auf die Suche nach seinen Sprösslingen.

Een goed uitziende, vrolijke actietitel waarin het redden van babykikkertjes centraal staat.

Frogger 2 improves upon almost every aspect of its predecessor and provides an up-to-date version of the classic arcade game. Its basic premise is its greatest weakness, for by re-creating the classic arcade game it has limited itself to a few basic controls and tile-based movement. Nevertheless, the game will appeal to players looking for fast, simple arcade action, and the many new twists on old puzzles will please fans of the original game.

Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge is one of the better efforts to bring the classic arcade games to the modern PC. Though better suited to the younger player in the family, it will surely bring back pleasant memories of quarters gone by.

Kermit der Frosch hat es schon immer gewusst: Es ist nicht leicht, grün zu sein. Frogger 2 spielt sich anfangs wie geschmiert, kann aber immer wieder dezent frusten: Die Kollisionsabfrage entscheidet im Zweifelsfall gegen den Angeklagten. Das Frogger-Remake von 1997 war cool und witzig, aber diese "neue" Fortsetzung wirkt wie hastig in der Mikrowelle aufgewärmt. Immerhin: Wer kurzfristige Jump-and-Run-Putzigkeit mit ein paar Nostalgiewellen verbinden will, fährt mit Frogger 2 ganz gut.

Nett, aber langweilig – mit Frogger 2 will Hasbro Interactive offenbar kein Risiko eingehen. Die Grafik ist okay, Steuerung und Levelaufbau sind so solide wie ein alter Eisdielen-Flipper. Nach dem etwas durchwachsenen ersten Remake finde ich die teilweise Rückkehr zum Uralt-Vorbild zwar gut. Richtig Spaß mag sich bei mir trotzdem nicht einstellen. Letztlich fehlt eine Motivation jenseits des Punktesammelns und Nächsten-Level-sehen-wollens. Außerdem ist die Grafik zwar insgesamt recht bunt, aber in Sachen Frosch-Animation erwarte ich heutzutage einfach mehr.

But FROGGER 2 never tries to do anything but make up for its last incarnation, There’s plenty of hand-holding: Once you beat a level, you never have to go back, and there’s almost always an extra life around the corner. This is what the first game should have been While we’ll stop short of an all-out recommendation, we will say that if you stumble upon FROGGER 2 in the bargain bin, give it a shot. It’s an enjoyable way to waste a few hours.

So, who's going to buy this game you might ask? It's aimed at kids, but they don't know who Frogger is, so I'd say it'll be the nostalgia-seeking parents. If you love Frogger, then buy it. The retro levels alone will keep you amused. If you don't really dig the amphibian thing, then you're best off steering well clear. Given a choice I'd probably chuck my controller on the floor and head for the pub. Frogger 2 is a mildly distracting blast from the past, but it only gets 3 GiN Gems from me, because it's repetitive and nothing new. Definitely, it is destined to be a budget title.

If Frogger is on your top 5 list of all time favorite games, then you will likely enjoy this game. While it does include the old dodge cars & obstacles levels of the old, and just a lot more 3D obstacles & puzzles in the new version, it will depend on what you think of Frogger in general. I found it to be a frustrating arcade game in whole, while others think of it as a revival of how a classic should be.

Pour les plus jeunes qui aiment le genre ou pour les vieux nostalgiques, Frogger 2 est parfait. Il s'adresse simplement à un public plutôt restreint, en dehors duquel il trouvera peu d'adeptes. Dommage aussi que son mode multijoueurs soit trop répétitif, par la faute d'un nombre de cartes trop faible que l'absence d'éditeur de niveau ne permet pas de compenser.

It’s no secret that Frogger 2: Swampy’s Revenge is aimed at casual gamers and arcade addicts. Although Hasbro has eliminated the frustrations and bugs that spoiled the first game, it also limited the product’s value with a short solo romp and missing Internet support. I am therefore hard pressed to recommend this title, which offers little more than a couple hours of game time, despite the fact that it should be quite entertaining for platform fans. Hopping around in the shallow end of the pond, Frogger 2 fails to make a splash.

В игре нет того, что необходимо не только каждому человеку, но и объекту, создаваемому его руками — души. И искать ее бесполезно, потому что непредусмотрительные девелоперы забыли ее туда вложить. Видимо, жалко стало отрывать частичку чего-то своего...
