Not Quite As Groooooooovy As The First
I purchased this game, hoping it would be as good as its predecessor. I didn't get that, but I got an okay game. It has the same fun platforming and shooting of the first, but the level design is flawed. My first complaint is that the same level is repeated three, (I think) times to make the game longer! RIDICULOUS! Also, this level is an extremely boring, tedious and long one. This game's other fatal flaw is that most of its levels are too tedious. For instance, one has Jim floating up to higher points in a level with his inflated head. Okay that's fine. It goes downhill when the slightest mistake will send you falling to the beginning of the level. Many other levels will aggravate you in this way, too. This game does improve on the first one by being even more funny. (Level 8 is called level ate, *giggle*). Even with this minor enhancement, Earthworm Jim 2 does not live up to the first. Get this one if you like the first, though.
