The Meltdown Premise

Pros:
Pretty sharp visuals at 480p. Simple puzzle solving linear gameplay. Easy menu interface. Children friendly with very small levels.

Cons:
One player. Some variety, but mostly you are a pre-historic squirrel tracking down acorns which can be extremely repetitive. Moving camera angle: this sometimes made it difficult to see where you needed to go for your next objective. You cannot kill off most baddies, just stun them which can be tedious. With so many action movements, for a children's game, it may be difficult to remember for them.

My younger brother and I did not have as much fun playing IA2 as much as Open Season. The meltdown premise of you (being a pre-historic squirrel) tracking down acorns was not very fun. Even though we got to play mini games within the levels, overall it was too repetitive and we did not care to finish the game. We did not detect any mini-games, either, which gave this game a score of 4=weak. I don't believe this game is worth a rent or a buy. However, if you rent this game then don't forget to check out Open Season.
