What seemed unimpressive in 2004 now feels enjoyable and imaginative, and we're not sure what that means, exactly. It's simultaneously cheerful and challenging, and there's a lot of joy in the journey as well as the destinations. The cursed spectre of 'gameplay variety' (read: jack of all trades, master of none) looms over the material, but by making the diversions brief and ultimately simple it manages to keep the player guessing to an extent throughout its languid twelve or so hour runtime. Some backtracking and minor camera issues bring things down a touch, but overall Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is a surprisingly solid slice of character action, and one we fear may have been underserved at the time of its original release. This is not just a sequel that's content to rest on its laurels, and that's worthy of respect. Hooray! We made it through the whole review without any silly, lazy Aussie clichés. That's bonzer, mate!
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 is a shocking departure from its predecessor, and what’s most impressive about it is that it aged surprisingly well. Well, with the exception of the poor framerate on this Switch version, that is. It’s not better nor worse than the original Ty, given how different its gameplay is altogether. Even if this remaster didn’t exactly breathe new life into this 2004 title, considering the minute visual and performance upgrades, being able to play this feel-good open world platformer on-the-go is a worthwhile experience.
