The Ice Age is coming to a close, and our sub-zero friends Manny, Sid, Diego and Scrat all return in this adventure video game set in a slowly melting setting of waterparks, geysers and tarpits. Ice Age 2: The Meltdown signals the return of Manny the Mammoth, Sid the Sloth and Diego the Sabre-Toothed Tiger, and with a little help from Scrat, the dentally-Challenged super-squirrel, the biggest of all jobs is on: the furry foursome are soon aware that the melting ice will flood the valley in which they and their friends reside.
It's a platform/adventure paradise populated by animals that need to be rescued from a watery demise, and with the help of the amusingly sabre-toothed squirrel from the first movie (that's Scrat, remember?) you have to help your bigger friends cross the cold-but-getting-slightly-warmer-by-the-minute landscape to safety. Who would have thought that an unlikely looking would-be hero's collecting of acorns would lead to something so wonderful and satisfying as saving lives. Oh, the joy of video gaming! Ice Age 2, we salute you.
