Good but not great
This was a very fun game to play, it flowed well and had a lot of different charachters to enjoy plating with. However there were some issues that make this game, as of right now, not worth 10$.
Upsides: great graphics, flowed well, and had a decent story line. Lots of improvement over the first one! One of my chief irritations with the first rolando was that no matter how much you tilted, charachters never managed to go very fast. In this one,though, they made the charachters have a lot of ability to vary speeds and I commend them on that. The 3d graphics are very cool and well done, and the gameplay is similiar to the last one in which you can pick it up, figure it out quickly, and finish a level here and there without having to be totally focused on the game at all times. Vehicles in the game are a good addition, and you can do a lot more such as destroy the enemies in different ways.
Downsides: worst part: very short. If you spend any real amount of time in this game you'll be finished in around 3 or 4 days. Unfourtanetly there's little replay value because to be honest, at least for me, going and collecting little crystal things to get "achievement medals" is not that entertaininig. Another issue is the "boss" fight.
In short; it's pathetic. All you do is shoot two arrows and a bomb and it's dead. It took me around 2 minutes, and it lefte feeling disappointed.
Future update ideas:
Rolandos collaboritive creators have been posting claims all over the Internet that bonus level packs are coming to this game just like the last one. I'm still waiting on those, but hopefully that means it's a big update.
Some levels take like 15 seconds! Hopefully in future level packs it's not the same case.
Create a charachter.
This is something that wouldake the game have some replay value, perhaps you could include this option if you get all achievement levels or something?
Possibly bring back the old charachters.
It would be cool to be able to play the retro charachters from the first game, even if it's only in the bonus levels (which will hopefully come in an update)
Overall very cool game, but I recommend waiting either for a price drop or update.
Truly worth it!

I have to admit that I have not played the first Rolando but I am truly impressed. I would recoumend this to everyone. I was a little unsure if this was going to be worth the price tag but after playing it, it was well worth money. New update gives it much more smoother gameplay.
Paid version has adverts for other titles pushed on title screen and who knows where else
Common ngmoco don't push adds in your paid version. I paid to get away from that and is not that the point of more games button!
