When I was a kid, I used to love the Croc games, the character was adorable was adorable and the game was fun even if it was a tad difficult to control. However, it is a game I am waiting for them to re-release for the Playstation 4 but sadly I don’t think that it is going to happen. Whilst I enjoyed both games, I thought today we would look at the second game in the franchise – Croc 2.
Croc 2 is a platform game that was released on the 30th July 1999. It was developed by Argonaut Software and Natume, it was published by Fox Interactive and THQ. It was released first on the Sony Playstation before it was later published on Microsoft Windows and Game Boy Color.
The plot of the game takes a place several months after the original Croc: Legend Of The Gobbos. Professor Gobbo is captured when he witnesses the ressurection and rebirth of the original bad guy Baron Dante. The aim of the game is to play as Croc and help rescue the professor whilst also saving other Gobbos on the way. A Gobbos is a small creature that is tufty with lots of brown fur.
The game received mixed reviews when it was released but it got an average rating of 7.5/10. The game was praised for the graphics, soundtrack and size but was criticised for it’s difficulty and camera angles. I faintly remember playing the game and even though I was a kid when we had it about 10 or 11 years old. I used to love Croc but I did find that it was really hard to control. Now seeing that the reviews criticise the camera angles I totally understand why I found it hard. I loved Croc and found him adorable, I would love them to bring it back and make the graphics up to date so that it would be easier to play as it is a great little action game and the world really needs more platform games.
