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

    It is signifigantly better than the 1st Sonic Rivals because now there are many more playable characters. Now there is fighting and ring collecting games in addition to racing.

    Sonic Rivals 2 is kinda better than the first but not by much but still lacking level design a lot and getting repetitive but does have smooth gameplay as well.

    Wow, this one was a huge improvement over the first game. So much that it almost makes me mad that they didn't include a lot of the stuff in this game in the first one. It still doesn't quite show all of what the PSP is capable of, but it has so much more going for it. The first one (I should've mentioned in the first one's review) is just racing, time trails and boss battles. That's it.Wow, this one was a huge improvement over the first game.

The first one (I should've mentioned in the first one's review) is just racing, time trails and boss battles. That's it. You also collected cards, but still. In this game, it's all that plus tones more modes and characters and full voice acting. The only thing the first game has over this one is a kind of changeable menu screen, but that wasn't even that great to begin with. This is definitely the best of the two games. Expand

    Instead of working to bulk up the races, however, they decided to throw in half-baked duels and hair-pulling boss fights to try to spread things out. It didn't work, but at least there's the potential to make a really decent racing game out of the Sonic franchise... if the third time is indeed the charm.
  2. Sonic Rivals 2 isn’t the super-speedy racing game you’d expect from the world’s fastest blue hedgehog. Jerky levels and unwarranted slowdowns prevent the game from moving at Sonic’s true speed.

    Sonic Rivals 2 is a faithful return to Sonic's roots. Aside from a couple of speed bumps, this is one title that should be welcome in any fan's collection.
