Summary: iL Putzki, that dastardly Penguin despot, is still alive – and the evil totalitarian Penguin regime seems stronger than ever! What’s up with that? Uncover the sinister plot as Hardboiled Chicken, the Original Coq of War, and put an end to it, once and for all – in the full, single player story campaign. After the fall of Albatropolis, General Puff and the Budgie Commandos have set up residence in the old hotel and are getting themselves organized. Assemble a strike force of great magnitude and go on rescue missions behind enemy lines in the game’s 1 – 4 player Rescue Mode. Leave no bird behind.
Rocketbirds 2: Evolution is just about everything I wanted from a sequel. It improves upon just about everything from the original, the story goes in weirder directions while still retaining its dry humor, the game somehow looks even better than before, and we get a new album from New World Revolution. The long wait was worth it.
Rocketbirds 2: Evolution was a fantastic surprise for me. Having never touched the first game (even though I owned it through PS+), I had no idea what to expect. In the end what I got was a mostly solid single player campaign, with a co-op mode that could have me coming back for ages.
