Summary

THE PC platform game to play.

The Good

What's not to like? from the brightly colored, highly detailed graphics with gobs of animation and multiple background layers, to the spot on cartooney sound effects and cool music, Jazz 2 is truly THE platform game for the PC. You can blast right through the levels, or you can take your time and find all the secret nooks of treasure. The included level editor lets you create your own levels and is fairly easy to use. The multi-player mode is highly addictive, and the lag is(was) pretty tolerable, even on slower connections.

The Bad

It's not very difficult, even on the highest difficulty level. An extra episode or two would have been nice.

The Bottom Line

It's like being in an interactive cartoon, and once you have played it, it will make you forget about Sonic the Hedgehog for a while. Very good game in every aspect, I highly recommend picking it up.
