Did you actually play EWJ2 or just watch a video? I'm with pretty much everyone else, it's the better game. They should've made the mini-game optional though, in both games.
I haven't played much of EWJ2 (I have played quite a bit of EWJ1). But nor did I need to, to know how tedious the game is. I love watching play throughs of games, but that play through was ridiculous. The puppy bouncing part was way longer than it needed to be. It was too long and became repetitive/boring. Then they have the nerve to make you go through it again later on. It should have been just a 1-2 round bonus level. The dirt level was interesting for about 30 seconds, before coming off as kinda mediocre. The first level was decent though. Showed some promise. Not as good as the first level in EWJ1, but nothing to really complain about. Let's see... the cow milking level. Jesus. Was a tedious/laboring/unfunny level. It was a chore just watching it. The last level was cool. Nice palette effect on the globes too. Overall the game's humor just felt reused/forced. The first game in comparison was unique, refreshing, different, humorous. And a step back.
