I can’t summon the necessary bile to truly dislike Gravity Rush 2, nor can I summon the necessary warmth to love it. In the aftermath of its grand finale I was exhausted in every way, happy to have gone on such an epic journey and just as happy that it was finally over.

Not only Gravity Rush 2 is a worthy successor for the first game, but it surpasses its predecessor (and its remaster) in ever aspect. Not only it’s extremely fun, engaging and even challenging, but due to its production and artistic value, it’s  definitely one of those titles that you’ll want to show your friends when you need to demonstrate why you’re proud to be a gamer. They’re bound to be impressed.

Gravity Rush 2’s true strength is showcased when you aren’t actually doing any of the missions. Just about any time you aren’t in a mission there will be several available objectives on the minimap. As someone who always has a whack of games waiting to be played, I like to get right down to business and map out the most efficient way to clear out side missions. More often than not though I’ll notice an hour or more has slipped by and I haven’t even started the next mission. Nope instead I’ve been free falling around town looking for hidden gems, snapping pictures, taking selfies or responding to online treasure hunts and event challenges.

Gravity Rush 2 is the kind of game that makes me want to do everything. If there's more DLC beyond the upcoming free Raven campaign, I'll play it. If there's some uncovered secret or time trial I haven't done yet, I'll find it. Now that the series is unchained from the ill-fated Vita, I hope it gets the recognition it deserved the first time around.

It’s a much bigger game than the original, giving you plenty of land to explore and tons of missions to beat. It feels so much different from your typical big-budget console game these days. It’s more of a comic book than an action movie, allowing players to delight in their own heroics. It’s one of the PlayStation 4’s most stunning and entertaining exclusives.

While the original Gravity Rush pushed the Vita to its limited, Gravity Rush 2 is unleashed upon the far more powerful PlayStation 4, giving us a game that’s as big in scope and substance as the concept designs its world and characters were born from. Among Sony’s efforts to give their console a wide array of more niche experiences, this gravity-controlling Kat is Queen.

Gravity Rush 2 is a fun game on the PlayStation 4 that offers players quite a diverse gaming platform/adventure title with plenty of things to do. I really enjoyed the stylised graphics that when matched with the special effects, audio and storyline, it created this quite immersive story from start to finish with fun characters. Sure, some of the control mechanics created a touch of controller rage but for the majority, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Gravity Rush 2 is everything I wanted out of a sequel. It’s bigger, better, it’s drop-dead gorgeous and it never stagnates. You’re always given something new to play wit, whether it’s a new power, a new city, a new gameplay element. Every time I found myself settling into things, the game added one more thing onto my already packed plate, and I always welcomed it. The beautiful world, the wonderful character and the constantly evolving gameplay had me glued to my seat for hours, and for as much as I came to love the first Gravity Rush, it never had me feeling as engaged as the sequel has managed to.

Sloppy combat inherited from its handheld predecessor thankfully fails to smother Gravity Rush 2's gleefully avant-guarde design and its enigmatic leading lady. Kat and Dusty's sophomore outing sees the series' potential explode in vibrant, joyous fashion. The rough edges are still there, but you'll have to squint to see them as PlayStation's refreshingly eccentric franchise soars to spectacular new heights.

When it comes down to it, the game has so many highs, and yet very little lows. If this is truly the last game as it’s marketed to be, then it’s a shame that there won’t be a Gravity Rush with a fleshed out story and perfected combat. At the same time, with this one, there’s so much packed in it, if another were to be announced, it would be a long ways away. A game like this is incredibly special and only comes along every so often. Gravity Rush is easily one of the Vita’s best games, and Gravity Rush 2 is easily one of the best video games ever made.

Gravity Rush 2 is an excellent game with a well told story and interesting characters. There are a ton of things to do with 27 main missions and more than 40 side quests that are imaginative and well thought. This game surpasses its predecessor by far with a very large world made up of floating islands that is way bigger and more beautiful than you might think. Gameplay is satisfying but not without its flaws. There is no lock-on system so sometimes you end up disorientated mid fight and you’ll mainly use one attack for most of the battles. In spite of this flaws the game is engaging and a lot of fun. You can almost feel the care and attention the developers put into it.

Gravity Rush 2 takes the strange, quirky style and gameplay of the original and lets it loose on a larger canvas, dishing up its gravity-twisting action with real imagination and verve. It has the original’s charm and personality but more ambition, with a bigger setting, bigger set-pieces and a storyline to match. If Gravity Rush gave us a great heroine, some interesting mechanics and a different take on the action adventure, the sequel puts then centre-stage in a tale that does them justice.

Despite its open-world growing pains, Gravity Rush 2 is a charming game that's well worth playing, both for its story and its quality action moments. I just feel that it would have been a stronger overall title if it were more streamlined and leaned more on its best qualities rather than shoehorning in activities that don't match with its action-packed, gravity-shifting theme. Still, with a bit of patience for its foibles, I think you'll find that Kat's adventures in this weird world are quite worthwhile.

There’s a lot of good within Gravity Rush 2, but you’ll have to wade through the muck to get to it. A meandering story, repetitive open world and menial fetch quests steer players away from the things that makes the franchise great: goofing around and never knowing which way is up. Franchise fans will get a kick out of the continuation of Kat’s story – if they understand it – but those with a love of action or experiences like Jet Set Radio will also enjoy this different take on a beat ‘em up.

Gravity Rush 2 lacks quite a bit in the story department, even with the side missions, but the improved combat and series-unique exploration make it difficult to put the game down. Even when Kat’s flailings are incredibly annoying and detrimental, and even with the awful stealth missions, it’s even more difficult to not have fun this adventure. Previous experience isn’t required either, as Kat basically has to learn everything all over from the beginning anyway. If Gravity Rush was always a game you meant to get into, there’s no better place to start than Gravity Rush 2.

The Artistic and colorful world of Gravity Rush 2 only attracts people who are patient and willing to experience anything but one of those empty-handed action games, just like a European movie which you never heard of and it becomes the most awarded movie in Cannes or Venice Film Festivals. Don’t get me wrong, Gravity Rush 2 is not so much of a masterpiece as those movies, but its vivid graphics and innovative gameplay makes you ignore some problems and grant it a second chance.

Gravity Rush 2 expands on the uniquely enjoyable gravity shifting gameplay of the original and features a likeable cast of characters that should satisfy fans, despite a few missteps.

I might not have known what was going on -- frankly I still don’t -- but Gravity Rush 2 is still a good time even for a new guy like me.

“More of the same” could very well be the simpler way to sum up what players should expect coming into Gravity Rush 2.

I love the setting, the characters and the premise of playing a happy-go-lucky superhero with gravity shifting abilities. Kat is the cutest, most likeable protagonist you’re likely to come across all year. When the game is in full flow, either during its awesome comic book style cutscenes or during its large scale combat, it’s superb. Unfortunately the game is far too comfortable simply forcing players through lazy content. A sizeable chunk of the gameplay isn’t actually all that fun to play.

Gravity Rush 2 is way more beautiful and bigger in world structure and in a number of side quests than the original game, but it's significantly behind from it concerning the story. Camera problems appear very seldom, but significantly irritate, and stealth missions can be a serious obstacle for newcomers. Nevertheless, having spent tens of hours on the game and experiencing minutes of wild anger, disappointment and admiration after, I can assure you that besides some of the side quests Gravity Rush 2 leaves a positive impression. And if you are a fan of the original game and can deal with the camera difficulties and quests of the same kind, then you can add one point to the final score.

Despite its faults, Gravity Rush 2 still for the most part succeeds in what it wants to achieve. It is a bold, refreshing and unique game which will keep the majority of its players entertained for a very long time.

Enjoyable enough if you liked the first game, but niggling issues stop this sequel from surpassing the original.

Even though the core of Gravity Rush 2 remains largely unchanged, you'll be hard pushed to find a fresher open world title in a sea of Grand Theft Auto and Assassin's Creed clones. Kat's traversal mechanic is still among the most satisfying that the sandbox genre has to offer, and an endearing cast of characters means that you'll actively want to spend time in their world. The combat and mission structure may still be this series' biggest shortcoming, but colourful scenarios mean that you'll stick around long enough to see the sizeable story and its many side-quests through. So, while not everyone will be dazed by what this release has to offer, the sequel should at the very least ensure that existing fans continue singing Kat's chorus.

Gravity Rush 2 is bigger and richer than the first chapter and sports the same joyful art direction. Unfortunately is also boring and sometimes frustrating as its predecessor.

When Gravity Rush 2 sticks to its strengths, it soars; it’s a shame that its stale mission design and clumsy controls keep it from getting too high off the ground.

There ARE things Gravity Rush 2 does right. It's gorgeous, brilliantly animated, traveling via gravity is still just as enjoyable, and Kat is a fun protagonist. But the game remains sadly held back by many of the same demons which plagued the first go-round, and as such, makes these issues far harder to forgive a second time.

Gravity Rush 2 should be a sleek and swift experience, but it feels like a local train stuck in traffic.
