You should leave the politics out

The game is colorful and fun for my 8year old to play but I don't particularly care for the hidden messages about race and politics. In this game there are many messages pertaining to evil "Blancs" or let's just be honest and say the evil ones are white and the goodx ones are brown. That is racist and offensive people. Now my son is too young to understand that, but I get it. And I would rate ur game much higher had u not chosen to go that route.

Is It Any Good?

De Blob 2 is a rare better-than-the-original sequel. The controls and overall gameplay style feel much improved, and there's a wonderful open-world aspect to the adventure. Once you've completed the required missions on a level, you can continue to explore, take on side missions, and paint and re-paint to your heart's content. You can choose to stick around until you've completely restored and repainted the entire land. While the co-op play is officially designated as "1.5 player" (as opposed to "2 player"), the game has been designed so that having a second person handle Pinky is a genuine benefit. Pinky's not just sitting around waiting to zap a bad guy or two; she can grab hard-to-reach power-ups, rescue civilians, change Blob's color when he needs it, and even rescue him if he's been inked over -- there's a lot there. In fact, that's the feeling we have about the entire game: There's a lot there. It's a good feeling.
