Sonic Drift 2 (GG / Game Gear)

Game Profile

Sonic Drift 2 is the sequel to Sonic Drift, also on the Game Gear and the first in the series to be released outside Japan.

One of the new things in the sequel is a lag boost system, which means that anyone who is behind gets a boost to catch up again. This keeps the action in the game. Another new thing is that the gadgets touched while racing do not come into effect immediately. They need to be triggered manually by pressing up on the D-pad.

There are 3 GPs to compete in and each GP has 6 tracks. Racing skills can be improved in the Free Run mode on any of the tracks, or, with a Gear-to-Gear cable and a spare copy of the game, direct competition against another human player in the versus mode.

Mario Kart = Good
FAST : Racing League = Wonderful
Most Sonic Racing Games = Bad (except this one)

This game is a worthy contendor of Super Mario Kart. Where as the original had only 4 characters and minimal and bland stages, this one introduces 3 more and each character has there own special and the stages have more vibrant designs and more items. The last one was weak but this game is fun to play and kill time.

Come on Nintendo, release this instead of your usual weekly shovelware! I would have rather seen this this week instead of Freakyforms!!!

My only problem with this game is not knowing where the heck you are. That, and not knowing when to turn.

Still, I might get this for nostlgia's sake.

Sega All Star Racing on DS and Wii were both outstanding. I highly recommend both

Definitely one of my favourite Game Gear games. I have a certain "Nack" when it comes to playing as Fang the Weasel! Oho yes, I went there!

looking forward to this, but as a fan I would'nt mind if SEGA chose to release the original too.

and here's to SEGA translating and releasing the rest of Shining Force Gaiden to the E-shop in europe.

This sounds like an improvement over the first one...which was kind of strange. But personally, I only like Sonic racing games when I can feel the sunshine.
