Gravity Rush 2 Reviews
Gravity Rush 2 is a step up in almost every way from its already enjoyable predecessor. The sense of freedom and adventure is great, thanks to the gravity bending abilities of Kat. Combat is still kind of dull and frustrating, but it's less of the experience this time. The gorgeous art style and design eases this pain though, delivering a great action experience for PS4.
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.
Even if it wasn’t a good game at its core – which it is – it’d at least get some credit for the soundtrack. I realize this is an odd note to end a review on, but I couldn’t find a natural fit for it in the rest of the text and just had to make a note of how great these bloody tunes are!
Gravity Rush 2 is a charming and fun game. The impressive AI does a fantastic job of building bonds between players and characters. A wonderful soundtrack alongside a wide variety of mission types come together to create a vivid and large open world. The game is hampered by poor camera controls and some hiccups in the story, but overall, the experience is one that I thoroughly enjoyed and will be playing again.
Gravity Rush 2 is bigger and better than its predecessor, but frustrating stealth sections and a wonky camera keep it from taking the series to the next level.
There are too many unanswered questions when it comes to the game’s story, but to get bogged down in these frustrations is to deny its intoxicating thrill
Gravity Rush 2 is a colorful, cheerful and action packed adventure that does not look nor play like anything else. The camera and controls will take some time to get used to and may annoy at times, but overall Gravity Rush 2 is a very polished and enjoyable experience.

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.

Gravity Rush 2 is an excellent sequel to the first game. It's easier to control, has an incredible depth of quantity and while it doesn't all hit, the vast majority does. It has a few strange choices in story design, particularly a false ending in one of the worst places I've ever encountered. All things considered, it's an excellent game with some of the most entertaining gameplay around, set in a fantastically designed world with a great visual design.
Gravity Rush 2 feels as great to play as it looks. It’s a true fulfillment of a premise with tremendous potential that was previously hindered due to hardware limitations. It’s a massive improvement in every possible aspect from the original and makes a strong statement as my very first pick for a game of the year contender of 2017.
If only the combat were better, more dynamic and more precise, I would have loved this game instead of simply liked it.
Whether or not you’ve played the first one, Gravity Rush 2 is a game you can’t afford to miss.
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 a bigger, more varied sequel that still doesn’t feel like it takes the leap it could have. The gravity-shifting gimmick is still a big draw, as is the delightful art style, protagonist Kat, and the clever world design, but the there’s a nagging feeling it could have been even better. It’s still a very good game though, and it certainly offers up something a little different in terms of a console exclusive.
Gravity Rush 2 offer us a big evolution to the series. The game is full of personality, full of relevant things to do, full of cotidian stories to tell, it has improvements to the variety of its gameplay and it has a beautiful presentation with colorful art and an exquisite soundtrack. All who played the first game should give this sequel a try.

Beautiful action-adventure with innovative gameplay, but it lacks other improvements and diversity.

Gravity Rush 2 serves as a modern throwback reminiscent of those times when Japanese games ruled the console roost. Like hard candy with a soft center, the game does a good job in balancing its more serious themes with whimsical moments. Its gravity mechanics, meanwhile, make for compelling action despite some of its niggles. If you’re looking for a unique open world game with a Japanese flavor, Gravity Rush 2 will attract you.
‘Gravity Rush 2′ is a gorgeously animated, exuberant game
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.
Gravity Rush is the celebration of a surreal and original fantasy, constantly balancing drama and irony. A perfect sequel, born from the magic imagination of Keiichiro Toyama.
