It's been a while since we all sploded but now comes a time for us to splode again.
The scientists are celebrating the capture of Splosion Man when suddenly an accident occurs and creates Ms Splosion Man.She is a clone with a bow,very different but definitely the better half.The game looks the same, feels the same but gives you enough new and fresh gameplay to be worthy of your money.
Running along sploding off walls, scientists and the annoying shooting robots are just the same as the last game and every bit as fun only this time with a little grace whist skipping and singing one liners from pop songs. You also get a little fresh air and scenary as you explore the outside and not just the Big Science labs.
There are space ships, zip lines, bouncy trampolines and what seems to be rocket propelled cars which all add to the great experience that we get yet again from Twisted Pixels sploding madness.
You now collect shoes instead of cakes which as we all know is a hit in the female world.Where you used to grab cakes and later forget if you had or not, Ms Splosion Man visibly wears the shoes throughout the level so you do not have to stand still wondering "Did I grab the shoes in this level?"Again like the last game the shoes are very tricky to get in single playerbut in multiplayer with a good partner or 3 it is very fun and not too hard.
The single player is very challenging and alot harder than it's predecessor due to what feels to be less check points and more obstacles in your path.
This can get quite annoying and you may want to throw your controller often!
Multiplayer is where this game really shines for me.
Blaming your friend for your mistake, the precision timing and skill that it takes to get shoes and finish the level make the MP very satisfying.There is not as much sploding off of eachother as there was in the last which is a shame but there is a huge amount ofother things to do in order to get to each check point.The scenary looks nice and colourful as it did before and on the odd ocassion (when you get stuck) you will see this and appreciate it whilst trying to figure out your next move.
There is a new game mode for those of you that want a new challenge called "2 Girls 1 Controller " (man is it hard!).You control 1 lady with the left analogue and splode with LB and the other lady with the right analogue and splode using RB.This game mode is very tough and can be unlocked by spending money at "The Mall" (a place where you can spend your hard earned in game cash on tons of stuff including avatar awards and funny videos)I would recommend this game mode for non sociable players with the patience of a saint!
Another new addition is "ghost mode " which is downloaded from the leaderboard menu.This enables you to compete against other players times and score. This competitive addition is extrmely fun and well worth a go. Then you have SP levels are different to the MP levels meaning double the sploding fun. It will take you about 6 hours to complete each of the SP and MP levels.
If you have played the last you have probably already bought this or planning to do so.If you did not play the last I think you should start here with this one and wait for the Mr to go into the bargain bucket.
Because of the pure enjoyment, re-playability, competitive ghost mode, online co op and the many laughs I got from skipping along singing songs in an annoying voice..........
