The Escapist (Dec 18, 2013)
A brilliant, addictive downloadable that is designed to target and trigger the happiness center of your brain.
IGN (Dec 09, 2013)
I’ve already lost a lot of sleep to Peggle 2. Its Siren song of “just one more board” is difficult to ignore even late at night, and during the day anyone who walks by and sees it wants me to pass the controller to take a crack at besting my score. Peggle 2 is one-button joy. You think, you aim, you fire, and you sit back and watch as massive combos and bright popping colors take over. That it’s such a joyful sequel to an all-time classic stretches my grin from ear to ear, just like most of the rest of Peggle 2.
Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Dec 12, 2013)
Those who loved the original Peggle will easily get their money’s wortht out of its sequel. While it’s basically more of the same with a different twist thanks to the use of different power-up masters than before, it never wears out its welcome. Newcomers to the series should first check out the original or one of its variants — like the free Peggle Extreme on Steam — to make sure the gameplay is for them. No matter the audience, however, Peggle 2 offers up a lot of value in part due to it lacking microtransactions, but mostly because it sticks to a formula that’s very fun and replayable.
Polygon (Dec 09, 2013)
None of those bits are enough to derail Peggle 2. And on next-gen consoles that lean most heavily toward more serious fare, it couldn't be more welcome. It's a ridiculous, excessive, joyful game that will devour all of the time you're willing to give it.
GameSpot (Dec 09, 2013)
Indeed, it's that shameless pursuit of making Peggle 2 as fun and as accessible as humanly possible--no matter how cheesy the cost--that I absolutely adore. It's the very epitome of a pure gaming experience, one that can be as deep or as simple as you want it to be, and one that never loses sight of what makes it so appealing to so many people. Sure, the window dressing here plays its part in the fun as much as the core mechanics of the game do, but that's no bad thing; that all important feeling of accomplishment comes from the slick visual payoffs and charming audio cues as much as is does from skilful shots. Peggle 2's randomness simply isn't an issue once you're locked into the Peggle groove. It's heaps of fun, totally absorbing, and such a wonderful place to be.
Game Revolution (Dec 10, 2013)
Catching your ball in the bucket below or racking up enough points to gain an extra shot satisfies like never before, but the title will absolutely appear on a device you probably already own sometime very soon. Don’t chuck that iPad and don’t delete your Origin ID. Peggle 2 is just too good to stay chained to Xbox One forever.
Game Informer Magazine (Dec 10, 2013)
Outside of a fictional animal giving us an unexpected eyeful, Peggle 2 doesn’t deviate from the series’ gameplay conventions, riding them to great effect in a variety of nicely designed levels.
Eurogamer.it (Dec 11, 2013)
Rimane comunque un acquisto obbligato per i fan della serie e il classico gioco capace di regalare ore di spensieratezza a chiunque lo avvicini.
ZTGameDomain (Dec 16, 2013)
Peggle 2 is a great follow-up to the addiction we all have. I am happy to once again play in short bursts, especially on Xbox One where I can do it while other games are downloading or installing. It isn’t going to set the world on fire, or change the series. It is Peggle, and if you want more Peggle, you will get exactly that here. For the price it is impossible to complain. Plus you just feel all warm and fuzzy while playing it.
BioGamer Girl (Dec, 2013)
Peggle 2 makes some simple but incredibly effective improvements over one of the most addictive downloadable title from the last console generation of gaming. The new release is the perfect example of a must download and own title for early adopters of the Xbox One. The small cast of characters is a bummer, but it may be boosted by DLC later, much like the Peggle Nights expansion did for the original game. Other than a few other minor annoyances, Peggle 2 is an excellent game that is colorful and happy and gives players a nice break from tension filled first-person shooter games and other fun but stressful games available on Xbox One. Players that download Peggle 2 for Xbox One won't be disappointed but will instead find themselves just as excited to play the new game as a highly popular .gif that helped announce the game last Summer. Buy Peggle 2 with confidence today!
Destructoid (Dec 09, 2013)
Peggle 2 is ultimately the same basic concept as the original set of games, but it's still most definitely worth playing if you're a series fan. PopCap could have done so much more than they did, especially when you consider the generational leap, but the good news is Peggle fans will eat this up and fall in love all over again.
4Players.de (Dec 13, 2013)
Die zeitlose Mischung aus Pachinko und Puzzle Bobble funktioniert immer noch und motiviert mehr enorm. Mit fünf neuen Meistern, die sich mit ihren individuellen Spezialfähigkeiten zu Einhorn Bjorn gesellen, bietet man allerdings nur die Hälfte des Umfangs vom Vorgänger - das deutet zu stark auf kostenpflichtige Zusatzinhalte. Im Umfeld hat PopCap ebenfalls wenig mehr als das Nötigste getan. Es gibt nur einen neuen Steintyp, der "doppelt" angeschossen werden muss. Peggle-Hasser werden so definitiv nicht bekehrt. Zumal die merkwürdigerweise funktionierende Mischung aus Geschick und purem Glück wie gehabt gelegentlich zu stark auf die Glücksseite kippt. Doch auch wenn die grenzenlose Motivation des Vorgängers nicht erreicht wird, es derzeit keinen lokalen Mehrspieler-Modus gibt und die Kulisse wahrlich kein Paradebeispiel für die Fähigkeiten der neuen Konsolen-Generation darstellt: Peggle 2 ist ein unterhaltsames Vergnügen für die ganze Familie.
Video Chums (Sep 11, 2014)
Peggle 2 far exceeds its predecessor's presentation quality and is great fun for any gamer looking for a casual experience. With a lot of replay value and content, Peggle 2 is a worthwhile download for anyone looking for a fun pick-up-and-play game.
Impulse Gamer (Dec 16, 2013)
Not only does it pay homage to the previous game but successfully transfers it onto this next-gen console with flawless gameplay and an amazing kaleidoscope of colourful graphics.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Dec 11, 2013)
Peggle 2 is more of what you've come to love about PopCap's peg-busting puzzle franchise brought to Microsoft's next-generation console. If all you want is more, then Peggle 2 will definitely please; but if you were hoping for something to really refresh the series after its previous outings, "more" may leaving you wanting, well, more.
3D Juegos (Dec 09, 2013)
El estudio responsable de sagas como Plants Versus Zombies o Bejeweled nos trae un título en formato digital destinado a Xbox One muy adictivo y simple. Peggle 2 no es ningún juego rompedor y, menos aún, ningún súper clase capaz de animar a los jugadores a hacerse con esta nueva máquina. Pero en cambio resulta muy ameno y agradecido, siendo altamente recomendable.
Financial Post (Dec 17, 2013)
A customizable online mode that pits players in simultaneous play on their own boards against one another helps extend the action a bit further, but it’s mostly just a novelty. I don’t expect many people will organize online Peggle 2 parties, and playing a puzzle game against strangers isn’t as much fun. Pity there’s no local splitscreen play. So, as it did with the original Peggle, PopCap has left us wanting more. I just hope we don’t need to wait another seven years for the threequel.
GamesRadar (Dec 09, 2013)
Peggle 2's visual overhaul makes for a cleaner, fancier Peggle experience, but the lack of leaderboards assures your addiction will be relatively short-lived.
Eurogamer.net (UK) (Dec 09, 2013)
That pedantry still lives in a few places, then, but are they the very best places? They would have been more welcome ironing out the annoying frame-rate issue that very occasionally crops up at exactly the same time you fire the ball, or fixing the small things in Bjorn's new design that make him look like a leering idiot. Peggle 2 is still a wonderful game, but to a super-fan there are too many things that feel miscalibrated. In a way, that's more damaging than the suggestion PopCap isn't sure what else to do with Peggle: it suggests PopCap needs to rediscover itself.
DarkZero (Jan 08, 2014)
Like Peggle Nights, Peggle 2 feels like just an extension of the original game and not a whole lot more. If Popcap were being truthful, they would not have added the extra numeral here, and instead followed Nights’ example – giving this release some clever subtitle instead. But this industry loves its numbers, and is never, ever that honest, so we get Peggle 2, which really is just shorthand for more of the same. It is still quality entertainment though, and should be enough to warm your heart on even the coldest winter days. I can’t help but want it to be more though – even if I still cannot fathom what that “more” should be.
Gaming Age (Dec 13, 2013)
But again, this is more Peggle, and at its core there’s nothing broken. The standard experience is a lot of fun, and remains super addicting. If you played the original, you’ll already have a good idea of what to expect. But I really wish PopCap had pushed the envelope a bit more with this, and had really pushed for features that should have been there day one, even if they’re introduced later through a patch. At a price tag of $11.99, this isn’t what I’d consider a steal. But if you’re absolutely dying for more Peggle, this will likely keep you satiated for a week or two.
Digital Spy (Dec 09, 2013)
Though not as experimental or revolutionary as we would have liked, Peggle 2 is as bright, bouncy and brilliant as ever, delivering the same addictive action as its predecessor.
AusGamers (Dec 10, 2013)
These two modes are a reminder that Peggle is, fundamentally, quite enjoyable. But Peggle 2 is an extremely safe sequel, and consequently a bit dull, most of the time. The first game had a sense of lunacy and inventiveness that’s missing here, outside of the game’s largely excellent soundtrack. If all you want is more Peggle, that’s what you’re getting here, and it’s still fine on a conceptual level… it’s just very hard to get properly invested in it anymore. The casual gaming market Peggle occupied at release has come such a long way that Peggle 2 can’t help but feel a little stale.
