    A solid platformer with a twist, and a welcome return to form for our spiny blue friend. [Jan 2007, p.65]
  2. Sonic Rivals 2 is as much fun as it is frustrating. It is, however, a good evolution on the previous title, fondly remembering us of the glorious past of the series.

    Another outing for Sonic that has moments of nostalgic brilliance; a brilliance that is sadly marred by some rather questionable tweaks to the gameplay and an annoying AI. [Issue#162, p.95]

    If you like Sonic, buy the game. The sound and story are lacking, but the game runs smooth, looks good, and plays great.
