de Blob 2 - 2018 Edition
Top Critic Average
While the game is a bit linear with its story objectives, there is room to explore in each level, with some great-looking locations that will surprise you. I have had an absolute blast playing the game for long and relaxing gaming sessions. de Blob 2 is a very fun, colorful and addictive painting puzzler with a nice Platinum trophy that has only one missable trophy. As long as you don't purchase any upgrade for your character during your run, you can get all trophies in one go. The first game was a fun release, and the sequel takes everything that was great about it and improves on the formula. Hopefully we get a de Blob 3 at some point!
de Blob 2 took everything that was popular and iconic about the first game and expanded on just about every aspect for the sequel. In terms of the remaster, this one looks a lot nicer with higher resolution cutscenes and sharper visuals. Fans of the original game will be happy with all the new mechanics in play and those seeking a challenge will love the Blob Party mode. Even though the camera is a new enemy which you must constantly face off against, the game was still a joy to play and impressed me in every other way.
Despite critical approval de Blob 2 was not a commercial success in 2011. This time we got an unaltered experience with a bit of touch ups. It's still a good game focusing on simple fun, not a challenge. It's perfect for all younger players, will it be enough to convince people to play?

de Blob 2 keeps many of the same characteristics found in the original game, with both the brilliant - and the not-so-brilliant - features mostly staying intact. The cameras can still be occasionally fiddly, and things can feel a little too easy in places, but brand new 2D sections and a slightly more refined-feeling overall experience put the sequel just above the original in our pecking order. Either game should go down well – especially with a younger audience – but this one just about splashes its way into first place.
Despite having a very similar feel to the first game, De Blob 2 manages to stand out on its own. The overall storyline does hold it back slightly. However the additions to gameplay, new abilities and the upgrades to De Blob and Pinky add substance. The addition of a Co-op mode also makes playing with a friend enjoyable.
de Blob 2 is absolutely worth playing if you have any fondness for 3D platformers.
Even though I prefer the arcade feel of the first game, de Blob 2 is certainly a must-have 3D platformer.
While it's true that it has some camera problems that can be annoying, it won't mess up the gaming experience the title offers: there's fun, humor and lots of color. A must have.

Available now on modern consoles, De Blob 2 has been remastered into a simple port, with barely any changes including its original faults. But I'll highly recommend this game to those that never tried it, especially for the younger generations as it's an entertaining title.
Overall, if you're a fan of the De Blob series or if you're just looking for a nice and peaceful game to add to your Switch library, I'd recommend giving this one a shot and letting your inner graffiti artist run wild.
