Of the 16 Sega Ages games released to date, this sits nearer the bottom end of the scale. While it isn't quite as limited as the first Puyo Puyo, it's still very much a one-trick pony, and while it's entertaining enough for fans of the series, when you've got the far more feature-heavy Puyo Puyo Champions on Switch for only a couple of pounds or dollars more, this one is entirely unnecessary.

The SEGA Ages line of classics expands its puzzler repertoire with another top tier title, and one that is well worth considering over its Switch Online SNES Counterpart. Lively and full of charm, despite being restrained to Japanese character dialogue, the Ages extra features both expected and new make this the defining version of Puyo Puyo 2.

Puyo Puyo 2 is an invaluable piece of gaming history for the niche but dedicated competitive puzzling community and, provided you don't already have Nintendo Switch Online, the most affordable entry point to the Puyo Puyo series.

Puyo Puyo 2 refined the formula that its predecessor introduced in such clever ways that its gameplay persisted through the ages.

Still, the only thing “new” to this version I can really praise is the endurance mode, ditching the stupid progression system of the original game, but I find the offset mechanic to be a bit too tug-of-war like for my tastes, and as a score chaser it feels a lot less addictive than the original. If you have local friends to play this with or don’t mind waiting for a match, then this is the Puyo game to get for multiplayer, but if you’re a scorechaser like me, you’re better off sticking to the first game for high-score chasing.
