Rated 9 out of 10 by WOLFF Platforming Awesomeness
One of the PS2's great platforming games although sadly overlooked by the likes of Jak, Ratchet, and Sly (Which ARE amazing games)
Ty is one of those games where you either love it or find it..."meh."
In terms of gameplay the game is fantastic! Running, jumping, and fighting are all quick and responsive, just how a good 3D platformer should be, and you need to master these controls if you plan on making some of the game's seemingly impossible jumps (seriously, it's rage inducing.)
The soundtrack is memorable, ranging from upbeat to serious, but it won't leave you humming for hours like Mario.
The only downfall of this game is the lag, remember the impossible jumps? Well lag seems to always hit during said leaps of faith, making them 2x as difficult. Other than that the lag only seems to happen occasionally during combat.
The graphics are okay by PS2 standards, a little blocky, but charming non the less, with very colorful environments and decent character models.
Overall this is a great game that should be plays by fans of 3D platformers like Jak, Rathchet, & Sly. The only downfall's being the frustrating jump-lag and mediocre graphics. But that hasn't stopped me from replaying it over and over!
Rated 10 out of 10 by YouKnowWho A Great game to Own!
For anybody who likes Spyro, Ratchet, or Australia itself, this is the game for you! The first installment of three, Ty the Tasmanian tiger follows the story of a Tasmanian tiger who needs to get his family back. You work your way through the game, collecting talismans, similar to the second Spyro, and work to help those you love. Your weapon of choice: the boomerang. This game is Australian-made, and contains some Aussie slang, and I would recomend this game to anybody. The next two games were even better, but you preety much need to play this game first, to follow the storyline of the second and third installment. It doesn't burn a hole in your pocket to buy it, likewise with Ty 2 and 3, so rent it or buy it, see how you like it, and enjoy!

The game was alright but not perfect. The game needs a lot better graphics but I am not saying that the graphics is that bad. I didn't really like the game because it needs a better storyline and they should have made it more challenging. I recommend the game to kids because some adults love a challenge. (From my friend) there is only two challenging is at the shark part and the ending. " I think the game is cool and fun" I hope you think it is cool and fun. It is a challenge but not for adults. The graphics are good. The game is pretty long. The storyline is pretty good. The controls are very easy to remember. The interface was really awesome for a kid’s game. The sound was awesome. I would recommend all the kids to play this game.

I really loved this game! When I was like eight years old, this game just amazed me. I haven't played this game in a while, but I remember being drawn in by the games stunning graphics and witty humor. I mean, this game is like Crash, if Crash carried deadly boomerangs and fought weird emu things. Sure, there are some low points, but overall, this is a good, clean game;.

This is one of my favorite game series for PS2. This and the Jak series. This game is so much fun. It takes a long time to beat. You attack with boomerangs and there are so many different kinds. The only thing is that it gets a little boring after you beat it. Thats why I got Ty 2. Ty 2 has cart racing, which is like mario cart, so it never gets boring.

I've never entirely finished this game but as much as I did play, it has A LOT to do. There are many things to collect as you discover new areas in big levels. The challenge is surly great when you are fighting the bosses of each world. The sound is good. The frame rate drops sometimes but otherwise I would recommend this.
Rated 8 out of 10 by txcowgirl Great Game
it was a really great game, some of the things u have to do seemed impossible, i do think getting from place to place (double jumps to platforms) is really hard and frustrating, there is a youtube walk through for this whole game if u get stuck, i had to use it, but over all a great game, will be getting number 2
Rated 9 out of 10 by GInganxGamer An entertaining game.
This was one of the first PlayStation2 games I played, I loved it. The gameplay is good. The game can be easy at some points, but it's still a good cheap game. I love playing this game and I always will.
