Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue (also known as Disney Pixar’s Action Game: Toy Story 2) is a platform game based on Pixar’s computer animated movie Toy Story 2 and is the sequel to the first Toy Story video game. It was released for the Nintendo 64, PlayStation, Dreamcast, and Microsoft Windows in 1999 and 2000. A different version of the game, titled Toy Story 2, was released for the Game Boy Color on November 22, 1999. A sequel to the game was released 11 years later based on Toy Story 3. It would be re-released as PSOne Classic for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Portable.
The game’s plot is relative to the Toy Story 2 film, and begins at Andy’s house as Al McWhiggin steals Woody from the family’s yard sale. Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex, Slinky and Mr. Potato Head head out to find and rescue Woody. After leaving Andy’s house the toys enter the neighborhood in which Andy lives, then proceed to Al’s Toy Barn, the penthouse where Al lives and finally the airport terminal and tarmac where the movie ends. At the end of the game, Buzz has a final battle with Stinky Pete (a.k.a. the Prospector) and two of his in-game henchmen. Contrary to the movie, defeating Stinky Pete is the end of the game.
