Nov 19, 2013Don’t expect to be utterly blown away by Shin’en’s latest – but don’t sleep on its ability to deliver a subtly compulsive experience, either. For less than a tenner you get a full thirty stages to play through, with some delightful touches that, for the most part, outweigh the flaws.
Dec 5, 2013While the prequel was a pure 3D platformer, Jett Rocket II tries to add a little variety with some 2D/3D gameplay and purely 2D levels. Surprisingly these 2D levels, reminiscent of Mega Man, are the best of the bunch, with a great level design and a touch of old school difficulty.
Official Nintendo Magazine UKJan 8, 2014Incredible to behold, but unlikely to inspire, Jett Rocket II is an engaging, if slightly wobbly budget treat that's more for the yes than the heart. [Jan 2014, p.89]

Its main problem is that it relies too much on tried-and-true concepts and as a result fails to be memorable.
The game features three worlds, each featuring stages that tend to be just long enough to entertain while being a good option for quick gameplay bursts. A good number of them are well-designed, mixing 2D and 3D platforming with challenging sections and cleverly hidden collectibles. Boss battles are fun enough, and so are the many minigames scattered through and between the stages. A noticeable problem is how slowly the main character moves, though, which is especially annoying when you have to backtrack a stage to find secrets you missed.
It's gonna be pretty hard to hate Jett Rocket II, as it's a by-the-numbers experience with great graphics and okay gameplay. It's also gonna be hard to love it, however. The main character lacks any real charisma, and the robotic enemies friends tend to blend in pretty quickly. The game's collectibles are pictures of characters, which would be much more exciting if the characters had more personality. None of the gameplay sequences are exactly memorable either, which meant I was never really eager to resume playing the game.
Truth is, serviceable as it may be, Jett Rocket II adds up to a supremely ho-hum experience. It's one of those games that are destined to fade into the back of your gaming memory in a few months' time. If you're on the market for quick and inoffensive portable platformers, it may be worth a download. Just don't go in expecting something unforgettable.
