Gravity Rush 2
Top Critic Average
Sony's superhero series has lost none of its thrills - or its wayward nature - in the shift to PS4.
After a couple of story hiccups, Gravity Rush 2 righted itself and pulled me in with the personality of its world and wide variety of activities. The new gravity powers and styles make combat exciting, and well-written side quests and character relationships grant better insight into Kat’s universe. After 40 hours I found it hard to put the controller down, and I can’t wait to jump back in to finish every sidequest I can find.
Just as charming as the original, but the improved combat and clever new gravity abilities make for a notably better game.
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.
Wandering around Gravity Rush 2’s enormous cities is a lot of fun, but the mission design feels limiting and dated.
Gravity Rush 2 is a jam-packed sequel that fulfills its predecessor’s untapped potential.
Gravity Rush 2 manages to land on its feet
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.
Gravity Rush 2 is a real treat for the eyes, ears, and reflexes. Its cinematic looks and score are wonderful, and its storyline is enthralling and thoroughly compelling. All combine brilliantly with the addictive and entertaining mission-based action to create a terrific game that's an absolute joy to play.
