Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge
Windows - 2000
Description of Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge
Frogger was rebooted in the mid/late 90s to rather mixed reviews with “Frogger: He's Back!” Frogger 2 offered more Frogger goodness (or badness, depending on how you felt about 90s Frogger) with a few tweaks and improvements and wrapped into a new “story” (though, I use the term loosely).
The player has to clear deadly trap- and enemy-filled obstacle courses while collecting little frogs. Unlike Frogger 2's predecessor, levels are more streamlined and linear, resulting in a more traditional arcade platforming experience.
The world of Frogger is bright and colorful and filled with all sorts of weird pastel things that will kill you. The biggest problem I have with Frogger is that even though it looks shiny and new (by the standards of 2000, anyway), the mechanics feel frustratingly old and clunky. While environments and enemies are all 3D rendered with fluid animations, Frogger's gameplay is entirely tile-based—this makes it difficult to judge timing on moves and jumps because Frogger and his enemies have hit-boxes that take up the entire tile. A lot of times, you'll be left wondering “How did that thing hit me? It should have been still in front of me/already past me!”
Frogger 2 offers several play modes, including challenges (time-attacks), multiplayer, and story mode. With Frogger 2 available on X-Box Live, you're probably more likely to find multiplayer there than for PC these days. Most folks picking this up will likely be going for Story Mode. Annoyingly, Story Mode may only be continued after being dropped back to the main menu and reloading the mode with the last level selected. And with how tough Frogger 2 is, you may be needing to continue a lot.
If you're a die-hard Frogger fan or morbidly curious about this rebooted franchise that you may have missed out on, Frogger 2 may be worth checking out. Otherwise, skip. Given the frustrating degree of play precision required along with the lack of reward, it's not great for casual play.

As far as the music goes, I know that when I had a physical version you could run the game without the disk loaded but the music would not play. I suspect this is the root of the problem.

for those unable to move past the startup screen, make sure you open the setupreg exe file first
no music in the game, anyone figured out how to get it to work?

Glad to have the good old Frogger back. I am still looking for the classic , i.e. of the year 2000 or so, street-version.

Can't believe I found this game again. Me and my kids loved this game. There was something about it that you just wanted to keep playing it. Thanks for sharing the memory

I installed the game but all I hear is the sound effects and the music file is not included when I unpacked the files. What can I do to get the music files?

This is memory central!! I loved Frogger so much. That was before the time of the smart phones when all mom and dad had were landlines and flip-phones. Who remembers the landlines?? So much fun answering it and giving the tella-marketers a hard time lol.

While this is my favorite game of all time, your rip is pretty terrible. While it has the gameplay intact, and the files for the FMVs and music, they are not playing in the game! Some of my favorite aspects of this nostalgic treat are nowhere here!
