Ty 2 does what most at least decent sequels do, have the abilities of the first game available from, add new content, and feels like the makers actually cared. However, there are a few problems that keep it from being, in my opinion, and even better sequel.
The story is one of these problems, for me at least, and here is the story: Boss Cass (villain from the first game) broke out of prison, stop his plan for taking over the world. Except for a few missions that lead to boss fights, most of the things you do in the game are not related to this in the slightest, which for me makes the story really un-engaging and dull.
Although the story is rather lackluster, the gameplay definitely makes up for this, keeping the abilities from the first game and building from there. One of the most interesting features of the included in the game is the upgraded versions of the first games boomerangs, which add to their deadlyness. Another thing added to the gameplay of Ty 2 is the inclusion of vehicle and mech missions, all nicely varied, which act as nice, short breaks from the on foot missions.
Although I wouldn’t say that this game has major flaws or problems, there are some minor things that kept cropping up from time to time. The first being the game world outside of the hub is a too empty for its size. You get to most missions by driving around, but for the most part nothing happens on this roadway, except for the occasional mook attack; except for these, it is just driving around looking at some fairly uninteresting scenery. Another problem I found was that some of these collectables seem like Guide Dang Its to get, that have no easy answer or obvious answer, and exploring the general area around it gives no obvious answer, so this might be rather challenging for 100% completionists. Related to this problem is that there is no way to track what collectibles you got from what location or how many there are left, so as you get closer to 100%, there more backtracking and scouring areas looking for anything you missed.
Overall I liked Ty 2, not quite as much as the first game, but I think it is a worthy sequel, caught up in a few problems, nothing deal breaking, just problems that occasionally cropped up
