“In a word, this game is scrumptious and it all fits together seamlessly with some crazy cut-scenes and lots of features”
100 – Quandary

“By remembering it is a game and trying to be fun instead of sinister like all the junky games I play, Spy Fox 2: Some Assembly Required is more fun than the newest PC graphics card, an episode of Get Smart and the latest Bond movie, combined.”
95 – Electric Playground

“Kid testers were thoroughly absorbed in the adventure, and were determined to solve the mystery and win the game. Even parents enjoyed the humor.”

The Mission: Find the hidden OFF switch, deactivate the dogbot and stop LeRoach in his robotic tracks!

I've never played this Spy Fox game before. Ever. I always wanted to as a kid, but the furthest I got to playing it was in a demo attached to Spy Fox 3. So, there are absoulely no nostalgia-goggles on me for this review.

But, unfortunately, like the first Spy Fox, I didn't enjoy this game either.

As a follow-up to Dry Cereal, this game is a little bit better in a few ways. It doesn't just show the villain and give him screentime at the end. LeRoach is given some fleshing out (though it doesn't make ANY sense, how a kid denied entrance to a fair and getting laughed at would lead him to join an evil organization and want to take over the world). The humor is much better in this game as well. Spy Fox was still annoying as hell with his snide comments, but I enjoyed the other sight gags and the repeating joke where a chatacter would slide into the screen and say, "S.M.E.L.L.Y. Oh yes. Our arch-nemesis," had me laughing several times.

But with those positive comments, comes my slew of negative ones. For one, I think this choice of location is MUCH lazier than Dry Cereal. It's a cool World Fair, but there's so little to it and it's so aesthetically uninteresting that it got boring to me really fast.

Also, similarly to Dry Cereal, the villain's plan seemed really stupid to me. How would relying on precisely 1,000,000 people cranking a turnstile to enter a fair which would crank a giant mechanical dog could possibly work. How would you know if the stadium could hold a million people? How would you know a million people would come? How do you know your robot is durable enough to destroy an entire planet? Doesn\'t world domination require a successful leadership instead of... rampant destruction? In the words of Tony Stark, "Not a good plan."

The whole S.M.E.L.L.Y. plot didn't really go anywhere either. They mention it several times, and it made for some good jokes... but really in the end it's just LeRoach doing his own thing.

However, the whole "ticking clock" plot allowed for a very Pajama Sam-esque plot development influenced by the gameplay itself. It's not as linear as Dry Cereal. Every piece you get to deactivating the robot dog increases the drive for completion. It's much more organic for a player to get involved in the story, and I prefer it to the archetypal Humongous plots.

But, you saw the thumbs down. And because you liked the game and saw I didn't, that means you're going to downvote my review, even though I gave my legitimate points for disliking it. Even worse, you won't leave a comment telling me why you disagree with my review. I'd happily accept arguments, but this is the internet so ho hum. In spite of everything, Some Assembly Required is a better Spy Fox installment than the last game. But I still personally didn't enjoy it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't enjoy it because I didn't. I'm saying that I didn't for my own reasons. I'm giving Spy Fox 2 a 6/10.

A very nostalgic game from my childhood. I didn't grow up with platformers and shooting games; instead, I played point-and-click games like Spy Fox 2 and 3. I don't even need to play it again to know that I still love it, with its silly plot and tongue-in-cheek humor. Finding this on Steam will definitely be a highlight of my year.

A rather fun, short adventure game that is charming and good for kids or adults. Features great artwork and voice acting with reasonable puzzles that aren't terribly difficult to solve. Runs rock solid in ScummVM.

LISTEN UP CHUCKLE♥♥♥♥S. TODAY IM GOING TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT 'Spy Fox 2 "Some Assembly Required"' NOW OF COURSE, AFTER THE ABSOLUTE MASTERPEICE THAT WAS 'Spy Fox in "Dry Cereal"', I EXPLECTED THE SEQUAL TO GO FOR THE ABSOLUTE GOLD. I EXPECTED TWICE THE FUR♥♥♥♥♥♥RY, TWICE THE JAMES BOND, AND AN ADEQUETLY MILKY CEREAL. WHAT I GOT WAS NONE OF THOSE THINGS.

SO BASICALLY, JAMES "SPY FOX" MOTHER♥♥♥♥ING BOND GETS MIXED UP IN ANOTHER JOB, THIS TIME, HE HAS TO STOP NAPOLEON BONE-A-ROACH FROM TAKING OVER THE WORLD IN HIS EVANGELIDOG. FORTUNATELY, HIS PLAN TO CHARGE UP THIS GIANT ROBODOG INVOLVES 1 MILLION FURRIES GOING THROUGH A TURNSTYLE TO WIND UP THE ROBOT BEFORE HE CAN RAMPAGE WITH IT. THIS GIVES SPY FOX THE EDGE HE NEEDS TO FIND THE THREE MCGUFFINS AND SHUT DOWN THE DOG.

THIS GAME IS NOTHING LIKE DRY CEREAL, AND IT DOESNT EVEN HAVE A PRETTY CAT LADY THAT YOU CAN CHEAT ON YOUR MONKEY GIRLFRIEND WITH. THERE IS A BIG HAIRY BEAR LADY BUT SHE IS KIND OF GROSS

ALL IN ALL, I WOULD NOT RECCOMEND THIS GAME. YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GO PLAY DRY CEREAL AGAIN.

Spy Fox 2: Some Assembly Required is just as good as I remembered.

Pros:
1.Puzzles are just as good as the previous game if not better. Some include cloning food or getting through a super small home.
2.Gameplay mechanics are the same as in Dry Cereal but our now used a bit more. We interrogate more people and use more gadgets.
3.This one has 2 routes as well. I will be playing the second route after competing one of he routes in the 3rd game.
4.Puns, references, and jokes are still quality.

Cons
There are no cons this time, but let's go into some more deep information on the game instead of the gameplay.

Story
This time we must go up against a pint sized terrorist who plans on using a Evil Dog-Bot for world domination. Apparently once the 1,000,000 customer enters the world fair it activates. Wait what the ♥♥♥♥ Leroach. 1,000,000 customers before you get this ♥♥♥♥ on the road. Why not just click a button that turns the Robot on.
You're probably wondering why he wants to do this. What is the tragic backstory behind this.
At the age 5 his mother threw him in a trash can. Out of pain he decides to commit acts of terrorism against innocents. I'm just ♥♥♥♥ing around. It's not anything like it. He couldn't get on "The 'Creamiest' Ride" because he was too short to get to the turnstyle.
So he wants to use this Dog-Bot to get his revenge on turnstyles murdering thousands of innocent civilians in the process.
Listen we dont want this to happen. So to shut off this sonuva ♥♥♥♥♥ we need to get through a breath analyzer. fingerprint detector, and a code as well as finding and obtaining the off switch hidden in the park.
So basically he shoves it in a Venus Flytap's mouth and ships it off to Madame Ladybug (Dont Remember her name) instead of a beautiful rose he promised. Why. Cause ♥♥♥♥ her thats why.
The code is found by some fish lady but oh no her connection is all staticy so we have to find her in Wee World a exhibit for tiny cities.
How do we get through the breath analyzer and fingerprint detctor you may ask. Figure it out yourself.
Anyway this game is good and definitly worth your cold hard cash especially if you played it before and are looking for a nostalgasm.
Enjoy my friends and enemies. And frenemies. And aquaintences. And people I have never met.

Another Instant Childhood Point-and-Click Classic from the Days of my Childhood, in which you help Spy Fox save the World's Fair by deactivating the Evil Dogbot.

SPY Fox 2-3 also have their own Theme Songs during the End Credits.

I grew up playing Spy Fox, Freddi Fish, Putt-Putt, and Pajama Sam. In fact, I still have all the games besides the arcade ones. However, I lost the disk to this game a long time ago, so I was very happy to see it on steam. I feel Spy Fox is the most challenging in the series, with Putt-Putt probably being the easiest. I feel growing up with these games greatly benefited my problem solving skills. Highly recommended, especially if you have children. Also, I have played and beaten all of these games, so if you’re stuck feel free to ask me x3

I really do love the Spy Fox games, even now. This was the first one I ever had, and in my opinion, it has aged gracefully. I definitely appreciate it a lot more now than I did then, because I've seen James Bond movies now :P

I wouldn't recommend it to older people who had never played it before, but if you're wondering whether or not the nostalgia is worth it--or if you're considering it for your kids-- it's a must.
