Peggle 2 Review: It's finally here!

GameZone
29 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Peggle is easily the most casual game there is. I can say this because out of all the casual games I tried to have my wife play, nothing held her attention as much as both Peggle and Peggle Nights did. It's no surprise that Peggle 2 was welcomed with open arms. Making its debut as a timed exclusive on the Xbox One, Peggle 2 continues to be a highly addictive game, if completely unworthy of a next-gen release.

Charming pinball-like puzzle game, now with 4-player mode.

Common Sense Media
21 December 2013
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Peggle 2 is a charming, challenging puzzle game featuring colorful "Masters" that guide players through dozens of levels. Players must knock out pegs by firing balls from a cannon, and leaning on special powers from their "Masters" to guide them. Outside of one character who shakes his behind after finished levels, the game is a safe choice for kids.

Peggle 2

  • Summary: The original Peggle came out of nowhere. It took a simple concept of peg-based brick-breaking that had been a staple of gaming basically since the beginning, and added a unique cartoon sheen that gave it a ton of character. While many gamers were quick to claim that it was mostly luck based, hundreds of precision skill-shot videos proved them dead wrong, as Peggle is most definitely a deep game. Therein lies its core charm.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Shoot silver balls at colored pegs. Repeat until you are satisfied Graphics: The characters are animated nicely, but there really isn’t much to look at here. Just sharply defined blue and orange pegs Sound: One of the most uplifting scores yet. Even scrolling through menus brings soothing melodies Playability: Skill and luck combine in every shot fired.

Peggle 2

IGN
9 December 2013
  • Conclusion: I’ve already lost a lot of sleep to Peggle 2 . Its Siren song of “just one more board” is difficult to ignore even late at night, and during the day anyone who walks by and sees it wants me to pass the controller to take a crack at besting my score. Peggle 2 is one-button joy. You think, you aim, you fire, and you sit back and watch as massive combos and bright popping colors take over.
  • Pros: Refines a proven formula, Fun new Peggle Masters, Cheerful, vivid presentation
  • Cons: Abuses GameDVR, Limited multiplayer

  • Excerpt: If you’re not drawn to pinball or pachinko, you might wonder how launching balls at fields of colored pegs could hold millions of players in thrall. But take it from us: you’ll have a hell of a time prying yourself from the clutches of this ridiculously addictive puzzle/action hybrid. Take command of a stationary cannon, then fire balls at the 25 orange pegs that unlock the next stage.
  • Pros: + Immediately accessible, enjoyable, and endlessly replayable physics-based gameplay with ample room for practice and mastery., + Vibrant presentation filled with personality and celebratory pyrotechnics.
  • Cons: - The finest targeting adjustments can be difficult to make; restrained multiplayer; dodgy Kinect support., ? Why is the stoner troll’s mug full of water instead of mead?

Peggle 2 review

GamesRadar
9 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Peggle 2's visual overhaul makes for a cleaner, fancier Peggle experience, but the lack of leaderboards assures your addiction will be relatively short-lived.
  • Pros: Clean, beautiful presentation, Insanely fun core gameplay, New Masters have clever powers
  • Cons: There are only five Masters, The lack of leaderboards is seriously a bummer, Challenges are sometimes more frustrating than fun

Review: Peggle 2

Press-Start
29 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Peggle 2 shows what a sequel can be. It provides intensely addictive gameplay with solid game mechanics all wrapped in an over-the-top extravaganza. This is an unlikely jewel in the Xbox One’s launch period and anyone who is lucky enough to have the Xbox One would be doing themselves a disservice if they weren’t to pick up this game, even if it is intent on recording your gameplay every 30 seconds.
  • Pros: Lush Audio And Visuals, Perfect Learning Curve, Crazy Addictive Gameplay
  • Cons: Annoying DVR Functionality
