This remastered edition of De Blob 2 is a disappointing attempt to make the most of a franchise by reproposing the same game launched in 2011, without fixing the bugs and gameplay issues of the original product. If you like to color everything shows up in front of you, maybe it's time for you to give Splatoon 2 a try.

A pretty long game, which was quite original before indie games were popular. Today it takes a lot more to get players' attention.

de Blob 2 makes its premiere on the Nintendo Switch and it arrives as a 3D action platformer that features a simple and accessible gameplay that is certain to catch the eye of less experienced players. If its simplicity means that De Blob 2 is easy to grasp, it will also leave out those players looking for something more challenging, as the game quickly becomes too repetitive and its level of challenge is simply not up to what most players are looking for.

If you've played de Blob 2 back in 2011, no need to play this PS4 port. Even if you liked it back then. Almost no changes have been made to the game and none of its weak points have been improved. de Blob 2 is an average platformer at best. Cool soundtrack though.

Still, for those who fondly remember running, jumping, and the excitement of hoping they land in precisely the right spot despite being slightly disoriented, De Blob 2 will be like sitting down with an old pal they haven’t seen in ages.

Even though De Blob 2 isn't without fault, it's a joyful and wholesome experience that amuses more than it frustrates. Adults might find it too simplistic, but it's perfect for children.

de Blob 2 is a fine title, it's about the same as the first and essentially the same version as its last generation counterpart.

de Blob 2 is a solid game that I am glad has made a return. While the remaster portion is a little of a misnomer, it is nice to see the game back. Now with these two remasters out of the way hopefully THQ Nordic can get on crafting the final chapter in the Blob trilogy. Bring it back, and make it beautiful. Colorful platformers are always welcome in my world.

De Blob 2 comes to modern day consoles with its essence still intact. This game has carried well all these years and still has great quality. However, there is this feeling of missing new content and better technical improvements.

Watching paint dry really can be entertaining, in this relentlessly cheerful mix of platformer and interactive colouring book.

Without being an essential classic, 'Blob 2' resists much better the passage of time and both visually and mechanically is perfectly valid in 2018.

De Blob 2 is a refreshing game from the tedium I experience from the first game. You'll still end up doing the same thing for most of the game but the focus on platforming instead of solely coloring everything provides a much more streamlined experience.

Being honest I’d say you really only should need one de Blob game in your life, though if you truly love the original and wanted more it won’t disappoint as long as you set your expectations towards more of the same. If you’re interested in the title but haven’t played the original it’s really a bit of a toss up which would be better. Honestly I prefer the pacing and objectives of the first to the sequel so in that case I’d point towards the remastered original that’s no less attractive and I think paced better for the Switch. Still, de Blob 2 is no slouch and does a great job of providing a less complicated 3D platformer that’s fun for all ages on the system.

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.

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.

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.

Even though I prefer the arcade feel of the first game, de Blob 2 is certainly a must-have 3D platformer.

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.
