THE GOOD: Beautiful environments Notably low learning curve time Nice acoustic music Game objectives not too elaborate
THE BAD: Game ends rather quickly Some points in the game frustrating Weapon-switching interface inconvenient Item hunting can become tedious
SUMMARY: Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is a great casual game to pull out when you have no other good games you feel like playing. With it's laidback, casual gameplay, it'll reel you in for a relaxed time. However, many key problems in the game counter it's longevity.
The game begins with our hero stumbling into a secret cavern, where he learns of his family line, and what has happened to them. Now knowing why he was raised by bilbies, and how he can save his family from the "dreamtime", he sets out on a valiant quest to retrieve and restore four talismans to their original place. And this game's main area, Rainbow Cliffs, is where the talisman shrine is located. The game is straightfoward, and not too complex for the player.
THE GOOD: One of the few games available on PS2 that are suitable for young children. But parents can get addicted too!
SUMMARY: Good graphics. Many missions are easy to achieve so even young children can play. Other missions are challenging enough for adult play and hard enough for children to be able to master it in stages which means a longer shelf life at home! The weapons are different (how many games use boomerangs), and you get to smash and crash enough stuff to satisfy the destructive tendancies of a 7 year old boy without being violent. There is a lot of exploring and for many missions in order to defeat the big bad dude you have to THINK and figure out what needs to be done. It isn't all obvious and requires some deductive reasoning. All in all we really like this game.
THE BAD: Where to begin? Moves are limited to Jump, Bite, and Throw ... oh! and you can glide ... which equals Boring.
SUMMARY: Ratchet and Clank is my Favorite Game .. I thought Ty might be like Ratchet ... well, not a chance! Ty does nothing that makes me want to play this game for more than 10 minutes. His movement is limited, which sucks ... and it makes it all the more HARDER to collect stuff. You have to go around (in circles) and rescue Bilbies that are trapped in cages .. you have to free all 5, to earn a Thunder Egg. Some Bilbies are easy to spot .. easy to free, others you have to jump from one thing to another .. glide down and into a waterfall ... and some you can't get to and there's nothing telling you how .. so you're stuck running around in circles. You have to collect 8 Thunder eggs total by doing different tasks and some are all most impossible to do because the movements of Ty are so limited. You have to collect 300 opals, try to reach (in some wa...
SUMMARY: This is one of the best game for my oppinen. Ty's cute and...hot.. Its a great game. I like the sounds and the animmaion. Like Ty can jump into the water and it'll have a splashing sound with moving water. It also so detailed. The animals that don't walk on two legs are also exctreamly deatled Buy it! Buy the game now! OR ELSE
THE GOOD: Meet 50 characters in the game Including the boomerang loober it's self, 8 different types of boomerangs in the game, 16 big levels of danger and look what austrailia looks like, learn new techinecs in the game.
THE BAD: looking at the water from the outside it does'nt look real but when your under water it looks pretty real.
SUMMARY: The game is Great,one of the best ps2 titles out there Better than Spyro the dragon, Rayman and Crash bandicoot. It's great just like Sonic adventure2 For (dreamcast), sonic adventure2 battle For (gamecube) Tombraider 3,4 the last revelation,5 Chronicles For(ps1,pc and dreamcast)only 4 and 5 are out for Deamcast And the final game I'm about to say is Tombraider Angel Of Darkness. I belive that game is going to make the world go crazy Just like Sonic and Mario did years ago. The characters in Ty the tasmainian tiger have some great detail Especially Ty even my friends like it and the art work that I've got ,Drawn pictures by copying not tracing and...
THE GOOD: If you liked "Jak and Daxter" and "Sly Cooper" you will love this game as well!
THE BAD: Could be longer.
SUMMARY: Fast! This is how you will describe Ty! His ability to run and swim and jump is really so much quicker than other characters in similar games. Hold on, I know what you are thinking. How does the camera angle keep up? Just fine thank you very much!
The game is set in a really great Australian landscape. And what a large landscape it is! You will have many miles to reconnoiter in your quest to finish each and every level. It has new colors and terrain as yet unexplored in previously released games. I am really sure when you get to swim for the first time your mouth will hang open! I was amazed at the scenery and lushness of the artwork above and below the water!
I would judge "Ty the Tasmanian Tiger" to be closer to "Jak and Daxter" in its game approach and feel. In both games you have a large world to roam around in which to have cool adventures. The sound is first r...
