Peggle 2 hit Xbox Live on the Xbox One soon after launch, giving the console a much-needed injection of the quirky over the top Pachinko inspired gameplay the original was known for. Peggle 2 is light on narrative, however, each of the 5 Peggle Masters have a valuable message for you. Clear Pegs. Yes it is that simple, or is it?
Peggle 2 as a package, has been meticulously put together and takes every opportunity to assault you with a visual and audio feast. Each Peggle Master has a particular theme which is represented by various backdrops, these backdrops are simple at best and initially leaves you feeling underwhelmed. Any disappointment is soon forgotten once you realise your highly detailed Peggle Master is reacting to your various shots and providing humorous gestures to the chaos that you are causing.
The excitement really steps up as soon as you do anything remotely worth rewarding. The audio crescendos, rainbows explode and lights flash. All of this is in glorious HD and you quickly realise that you have been hypnotised into an enchanting world of peg clearing. The menus are handled with simplicity and elegance, the game never forces you to have to wade through many options before getting to the good stuff.
