Right Up There With Mario

EA has successfully created someone who should practically be iconic. Ty 2 isn't just a good game, it's inspiring.

Pros
-Fun gameplay
-Variety of missions
-Simple but fun combat
-Good story
-Outstanding characters

Cons
-Most aggravating mini-map to ever exist

Ty is right up there with Mario, Sonic, and Sly Cooper in terms of sheer fun.

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is back in his sequel, Bush Rescue. All the fun is overwhelming after a while. Ty, a Tasmanian tiger, throws boomerangs and talks with an Australian accent (like all of the other characters). Ty can by boomerangs with opals, but they're red and are in crates or underwater. Some of them you need to complete a mission, so sometimes you go on a scavenger hunt to buy a boomerang. then, you're poor, but you don't have to do the missions. You just go exploring, then do the mission. If you get bored of story mode or are stuck on a mission, you don't have to put the game up in a closet and never play it again; there's a Cart Racing function, too. It is similar to Mario Kart: you select a character, a track, and collect multi-color blocks floating in the track to get power-ups or other things to win the race. This does get old after a while, but it's still worth playing.
These are the controls (story mode):

A Button-Jump
B Button-Throw boomerang(s)
Y Button-Select Boomerang
X Button-Bite
Control Stick-Move Ty

The gameplay is very well structured; the time limits aren't too short, nor too long. The controls respond well and the backgrounds are spacious and well-designed.
However, sometimes it is difficult to locate where a mission is, or where you have to go. Sometimes the mini-map at the bottom doesn't help, it leads you off in some other direction where you lose all your life and some saved progress.
Ty is a good game to play if you are bored or have no other game at hand, so if you have a couple dollars, you may want to try this game out.

I like the fact that this game is a continuation to the original TY the Tasmanian tiger, but in my opinion this wasn't that good, just the whole point of the game was pointless, all you were doing was pointless missions, most of the missions had nothing to do with the main story, some did but rarely. And I didn't like the other boomerang's they looked too...weird, their design was just so strange, and I hate how you get them. You don't earn them like in the original TY you bye them, and remember those red gems you collected in TY? those are basically worthless as well, you just use them to buy things, while in the original TY you used them for an actual purpose, I think to unlock different sections of each world but idk. And this game has bad voice acting. TY's voice is so stupid, it's not the same one like in the original, he sounds actually younger. So overall this game was pretty pathetic, it's so sad that they made such a bad sequel to an awesome game but hey the truth can hurt.
