Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2 (NES review)

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom
Released: 1994

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2 is a platform game and the sequel to the 1990 NES original.

+ Ability to play co-op is a blast and there's even a cool new attack where you can throw your partner to harm enemies.

+ Controls are excellent (particularly for mid-air adjustments), and dispatching enemies by throwing boxes never gets old.

+ Escape stage includes a timer that adds urgency, and the three Amusement Park levels can be played in any order.

+ Includes cut-scenes throughout your adventure to break up the action and to keep you invested in the narrative.

- Level design and settings are rather uninspired, and do little to differentiate themselves from the original game.

- Main platforming stages offer minimal challenge, and even the bosses have basic, easily exploitable patterns.

- Game ending is extremely unsatisfying, as nothing gets resolved and the entire adventure seems like a waste of time.
