Feeding Frenzy 2
I get that at first glance, Feeding Frenzy 2 may look like a game that most people will just pass over. However, if I have learned anything about Pop Cap games it is that they know how to make fun and charming game experience. I will say that there is not actually a ton (if anything) new here over the first one, but if you want something lighthearted and fun, you can certainly do a great deal worse than this.
Leave Our Ocean Alone!
While I would say that this is far from a cinematic masterpiece. I do like how they have crafted a rather fun little story to tie everything together. There is a new fish in the ocean that is called The Intruder and this fish is just causing chaos! The story of Feeding Frenzy 2 sees a group of fish standing up to The Invader in order to save the ocean. It is a fun little story and one that gives you a reason to be doing what it is the fish are doing.
Pop Capping It
One thing that the good folks at Pop Cap never get enough credit for is how charming their games are. I swear, I can always tell when Pop Cap has made a game as they all have this certain look to then. This game is no different. It is nice and bright and each of the fish has a ton of personality. The game is very colorful and it is probably as close to being cell-shaded without technically being cell-shaded as you can get.
The visuals overall are great, but there is a lot of variety here. You will be playing in some nice blue oceans, but there are also shipwrecks and cool looking reefs as well. These are really just backdrops, but they help keep things interesting
Fun And Fishy
The overall gameplay of Feeding Frenzy 2 is one that I really enjoyed. My whole family actually enjoys this game. You have multiple characters that you will be playing as ranging from Boris the butterflyfish, Edie the angler fish, and Goliath who is a shark to name just a few of them. Each of the fish has their own personality, but also things that make them special to play as well. The goal of the game is that you need to eat as many fish as you can (while avoiding getting damaged) to move up the food chain and to progress to the next level. There are power-ups you can use along the way to make things a bit easier for you.
The gameplay is pretty much the same as what we had in the first game, to be honest with you. You move around trying to eat the fish and while the concept is one that is very easy to figure out and pretty basic. It is something that will keep you playing for far longer than you will ever intend.
A Family Of Fish
While there is a fun single-player experience for you here. There are also some fun multiplayer modes. You can try and work together to beat the story which is cool, but you also have some mini-games to enjoy. I love the one where you need to bite each other’s tails to get the high-score. This is something my family has a lot of fun with! I do feel they could have had a couple more fun multiplayer modes as the other one is not as good as the tail-biting one.
Feeding Frenzy 2 may not change a great deal of stuff over the first game. However, this is still offering you a very fun and addictive time. I would wager many people overlook this game and the one that came before it. It has a lot of charm to it and it is the perfect game to play if you are looking for something that is quick and easy to get into.
