Description official description

Loosely based on the film of the same name, Kevin McAllister has arrived in New York City without his parents. However he checks himself into a hotel and begins to have fun. It isn't long before the hotel discovers he's using stolen credit cards and begin to chase him around! On top of that, Harry and Marv the burglars he once defeated, are in town and looking for revenge.

Home Alone 2 is a side scroller. Controlling Kevin McAllister, the player will need to jump over enemies and obstacles while collecting items. These items include health bonuses and a variety of weapons. Losing all of Kevin's health or being "caught" will cost a life. The player starts with three lives for play.

Not the only THQ blunder out there.

The Good

  1. Hard
  2. Levels are long
  3. Kevin looks halfway decent
  4. Jumping Grannys, guns, etc.!
  5. Kevin turns into a blob when you collect the bell!
  6. Music is good.

**The Bad**
  1. TOO hard
  2. TOO long
  3. Harry and Marv look like fat drunk idiots
  4. Weird enemies
  5. Not enough power-ups
  6. Cutscenes

**The Bottom Line**
WHY did THQ EVER decide to buy rights to this game? It is a fair try, but I feel other companies could have done better.

Many of the NES version's sound effects were taken straight from The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants.
