  1. If you're not going to mess with the editor, there aren't many reasons to get this new version if you own older copies of the game.
  2. 60
    With graphics and a soundtrack that are identical to SBaM, and the eight returning characters unchanged by even a hair, this game is more like a re-release of SBaM than its own unique title.
  3. Game Informer
    If you happen to be a huge fan of the series, I'm certain you'll appreciate the small additions and changes. [Dec 2002, p.123]
  4. There's not much to complain about, but also little to laud.
  5. There are enough new features to ensure that the game is more than just a stagnant rehash, and the sheer depth of options is enough to keep the experience fresh for a long time - certainly long enough to get your money's worth and more.
  6. 100
    The controls are dead-on perfect, but somewhere along the way, someone forgot to take advantage of the PlayStation 2’s processing power—something that’s readily apparent in the sights and sounds.
  7. Poor translations and horrible voice-acting aside, Super Bust-A-Move 2 is a fun and often frantic game that should be a part of any puzzle game fan's library.
  8. One of the best puzzlers to ever grace a console, and almost a must-have party game.
  9. Has absolutely no significance for anyone but hard-core Bust-A-Move completists.
  10. With multiplayer addiction to spare, a Chain Reaction twist on the decade-old formula and a new candy-colored coat of 2D hand-drawn paint, Super BAM 2 improves enough over the two-year old prequel to still be worth checking out.
  11. 73
    I DO dig the new Chain Reaction mode though, and the Puzzle Edit feature was well worth the time that I spent with it.
  12. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    The game does nothing new - yet I still played through it several times and enjoyed myself thoroughly. [Dec 2002, p.172]
  13. PSM Magazine
    But why only 2 players? [Nov 2002, p.52]

    In my years of gaming, never have I seen such a perfect, polished classic as the Bust-A-Move series.
