Freddy Spaghetti 2 - PS5 Platinum Review

Freddy is back in a new 30-minute Platinum adventure. This time he's got an office job but can he keep it amid the chaos?

I reviewed the original Freddy Spaghetti game a year ago and this game is more of the same. Essentially, you're controlling a piece of spaghetti to solve puzzles and generally cause mayhem. You control each end of the pasta independently with L1 and R1. Holding the buttons down causes each end to jump, so you'll need to control the physics to get Freddy where you need him. This is quite fiddly, but thankfully there aren't many levels where timing is too important so you can take your time and mash the buttons until something productive happens.



There are 40 levels to complete for the Platinum trophy, each of which can take anything from 5 seconds to a minute or so, but none of them are really difficult once you get the hang of the physics and controls so you should be able to complete the whole game in 30 minutes or less.

The Good

  • A variety of levels to complete.
  • 40 Levels for the Platinum.
  • The PS4 and PS5 versions are bundled together offering two Platinums for one purchase.





The Bad

  • Not as bad as the first game, but you will have to mash the L1 and R1 buttons repetively for quite awhile.
  • A few of the levels can be a bit tricky, particularly the "floor is lava" one until you get the hang of the controls.
  • It's not often clear what you're supposed to do on a level and some of them just automatically complete after 30 or 60 seconds.





Hardest Trophy

  • Level 40 - Complete Level 40.

There are 40 levels in the game and you'll need to complete all of them for the Platinum trophy. Some are harder than others, but none should take more than a few attempts.






Helpful Tips / Bugs / Glitches / Exploits

You don't need any exploits. Just take your time and mash your way through every level.






Platinum Difficulty Rating - 2/10

2/10

A few of the levels are tougher than others, but after a couple of attempts you should get the idea of what you're trying to do. As previousy stated, some of the levels can be completed within 5 seconds and others seem to automatically complete themselves after a set time.






Platinum Time - 30 Minutes

Most of the levels are doable in under a minute so with a few failures thrown in and skipping the cutscenes, you'll have the Platinum on both PS4 and PS5 within an hour if you want to.






Platinum Enjoyment Rating - 10/10

10/10
The game is fairly easy and you'll get a trophy for every level you complete. There's less levels than the first game which makes it a bit quicker to get through, but the variety of levels prevents it from getting boring.


Overall Game Rating - 7/10

7/10
The level design is nice and there is some decent variety between the levels themselves. Sometimes it's not exactly clear what you're supposed to be doing and a lot of levels are basic and simply require you to move your spaghetti to the other side of the room, but it's a quick, easy and fun game. I can't imagine you'd ever want to play it again once the trophies pop, but it's a well made and nicely polished short experience. Check it out if you like what you see!
