    I picked up Klonoa 2 earlier in the week, but didn't get a chance to play it until now. Since no one has mentioned this game yet, let me simply say that Namco has done it again!
    If you have a PS2 and are any kind of platform fan, you owe it to yourself to go out and (at the very least) rent this game. It wreaks of quality and is a blast to play.
    Control is excellent and easy to grasp, but difficult to master... especially when split-second timing is required to solve some of the game's more challenging puzzles.
    Graphically, I don't think this game makes any PS2 processors work overtime, but everything looks bright and colorful and all of the animation silky-smooth, with nary a trace of pop-in or slowdown.
    Audio-wise, Klonoa 2 is a treat, too. It even has DD 5.1 output (It appears to be only in the cut-scenes, but it a very nice - if not totally necessary - touch!)
    In short, if you are a fan of the genre, give this game a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

    I really want to try Klonoa. The art looks phenomenal.

    I'm very tempted by it but only thing that puts me off is longevity, if it's a fairly tough challenge then i'll invest.

    BrianB,
    I loved the original Klonoa, probably my most played PSOne game after Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and WipeOut XL. I am going to get it Friday, hopefully I will be finished with Max Payne by then so I can devote 100% to Klonoa 2. It really is about time that the PS2 starts to get the great A+ titles out for it, TMB, GT3, now Klonoa 2, next Devil May Cry and Maximo and the game I want more than anything.......WipeOut Fusion.

    I'm not sure if this is rental or a purchase. I guess I'll have to check the old piggy bank this weekend...

    I'm a big big fan of the series too - so much so that I'm getting a mate to send over Wipeout3SE as SCEA have zero plans to release it over here in the US. Bah.
