And dare I say it, more than the first game?
I listened to the Giantbomb guys really trash this game in recent coverage of the collection.
I understand the first game was very unique in its gameplay on a console and that's part of it's appeal but I actually preferred playing the second game. It had a faster pace and seemed a bit more actually cooperative when playing two player. It maintained the odd style of the series and added in all the ridiculous humans. The graphics were bright and pretty detailed and I enjoyed the animations.
I know there were a lot of 2D side-scrollers at the time but even then I found the game's style and it's mechanic of hunting the humans a bit different. I liked the shaking trees, the bouncing pads, all of the different mechanics. There was a sort of freestyle dancing if I remember correctly. It had the great music...
Watching the Quick Look I was seeing if I really didn't recall and it was bad but it looked like how I remembered it and looked fine, the guys were just dumping on it because it wasn't like the first. I get them saying it's disappointing they turned it into a side-scroller but the game is not poorly made.
Am I alone here? Does everyone hate this game?
