Review by Tom Allen
3 Stars out of 4

Tomba! 2 heralds the return of a pink-haired caveman freak and a group of equally pink pigs. The characters are clearly targeted at younger snouts - er, players. The game play is appropriate for this audience, but its overall execution keeps it from being a hit with the older crowd.

The pre-set paths are almost offensive in their excessive limitations. Sometimes you can't walk over to a path that's three feet away from you without following the current path all the way around.

Controls are dependent on the graphic engine and directive icons at times, leading to mistakes or unnecessary delays for players used to quick controls.

The music is annoying. The talking-to-people theme is practically rhythmic cyanide. Plus, talking is a common occurrence.

While the game play is average at best, the game does show creativity and effort, hence the generous B grade overall.

You can wear a pig suit as a disguise (also needed for hip attack move, God knows why), ride on a mine cart, use bird clothes to fly (flying squirrel suit to fly longer), or don an evil pig robe to gain boss-killing magic powers.

The creators of Mega Man, Breath of Fire, and Ghouls and Ghosts aren't quite making pigs fly with Tomba! 2, but kids who can still fart and giggle themselves to death over it will get a kick out of it no matter what I say.
