Parents would be well-advised to pick up a copy of Stuart Little 2. The presentation and content aimed at younger gamers hits the mark dead-on, but it doesn't skimp on the gameplay. You might find even find yourself sending little Timmy to bed early in order to sneak in an hour or two yourself. There is no nudity, explicit violence or questionable language whatsoever.
Gamers in general looking for platforming action should rent the game. Its solid as a rock and will easily entertain for a few hours. The difficulty is extremely easy and lacks any "grim n gritty" elements, but running around the over-sized environments is a hoot. It's hard not to like a game that does platforming as competently as this. The main character is just cute as a button, to boot.
Fans of 3D platformers should definitely look into Stuart Little 2. If you can get past the ultra-colorful palette and technical limitations of the PlayStation, there is a choice amount of enjoyable action going on here. It's going to be a cakewalk for most older gamers, but that doesn't stop it from being a lot of fun on a small scale.
Hearing impaired gamersget the old half-and-half treatment here. All voiceovers and instructions during gameplay are accompanied by text, but the games cut-scenes and unlockable movie clips are taken directly from the motion picture and have no text whatsoever.
