While Peggle 2 is hardly as innovative a sequel as we've come to expect from PopCap, it continues the status quo of challenging with puzzles and delightful characters, and for some, that will certainly be enough. The inclusion of additional challenges and multiplayer helps as well, even though we'd prefer something co-op related down the line. Oh, well, you'll still have a ball here. In fact, several.

Peggle 2 is an addicting game packed with silly fun that anyone can manage. If you haven't played Peggle before, this game will hold a higher value than if you had. There were several areas which could have been improved upon to help maintain the community's interest. I would recommend this game to families and new players but returning players may want to wait for a sale.

Peggle 2 is a good little game that's worth a go if you're new to the property or are a big fan of its predecessor. While addictive, though, the core gameplay can get repetitive at times, and this isn't helped by some samey level design and a general lack of fresh ideas. Indeed, the experience here is largely comparable to the original, but it does at least manage to mix things up with new characters and special abilities. These, sadly, aren't enough to make the title feel brand new – but it's at least working with some strong existing blueprints.

Peggle 2 far exceeds its predecessor's presentation quality and is great fun for any gamer looking for a casual experience.

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.

It's a hoot while it lasts, but the Xbox One-exclusive sequel to PopCap's popular puzzler feels a bit abbreviated.

It runs with minimal loads, has a wondrously vibrant color palette, and the sound is exceptional on home theater systems. But ultimately, players' need for more Peggle will dictate whether they pick this game up now for $12, or wait for the inevitable, and likely cheaper, mobile release.

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.

Even with the problems, Peggle 2 is still Peggle.
