    An Amazing Sequel and Conclusion to Kat's Journey

    Admittedly, I purchased this game on release date but did not actually play it till 12/2017 and complete it till 01/2018. This game and entry is a must buy to any players of the first game. Questions you have from GR are answered and revealed here. It's not just a sequel that adds a new existing story and focuses on the future. Lore from the first game is established and explained here. Having made sure to purposely revisit but also first hand experience GR through its remaster before delving into its sequel, GR2 was a fantastic sequel. The story and writing is extremely well done, and is longer, bigger, and more epic than GR. The lore is intact and capitalized on, Kat's origins are explained (including the event of how the first game started), the timeline changes are handled well without, if any, major plotholes, the accompany of the special gravity creatures are explained, the world tree plays a part in the story, the dark ocean narrative from the first game is not absent here, all characters focused on competently play their part in the story (and Raven is a very engaging character to see more of in this installment), the ending is satisfying and presented great, etc. Music is not amazing but it's good and does its job. Gameplay is better overall, with a few flaws, combat wise. The overall gameplay as a whole is much better. Camera seems worse but the event requires certain collisions with the surfaces in the game so it's mostly situationally worse. Better UI. The online components (which are ending 8 days from now) are very fun (unfortunately some people will miss out on a fun extention to the game here, which may not affect the core GR2 experience, but is a fun side of gameplay). Graphics are not as stylize as the first game, but it's still great. The level design is good. The geometry of the level design has been revamped in this game to include bigger and flatter surfaces so that walking, running, and sliding on and underneath rooftops is actually possible. This is actually a part of the game I praise, because the underneath portions of buildings that you usually don't explore or need to go under are designed to an extent that puts it on the tier of actual levels you're advancing through. The story was the best part about this game. Just purely amazing writing here. For a basis on the quality of the story, I'd put it up there with the Uncharted series (haven't played Horizon Zero Dawn or Nier yet; they're in my backlog). However, better than inFAMOUS series. The games are actually similar to inFAMOUS: Super Power Heroes, Comic Book style presentation, etc. I essentially find this a higher tier/quality style inFAMOUS game, and im talking the 1st and 2nd game.. the series, not just Second Son.

    Vita's marque franchise flourishes on the PS4

    The first Gravity Rush was Sony's attempt at making a system seller for the Playstation Vita... And while Gravity Rush didn't sell all that many Vitas, Sony did succeed in making a very good game. That had an interesting enough universe and unique gameplay mechanics to become a new successful franchise... with Kat potentially being a new mascot for Playstation. And while it's sad the Vita didn't do better than it did. Gravity Rush moving from it's handheld limitations to the console has been nothing but positive for the franchise. Everything in GR2 is an improvement. The visuals, controls, scale, everything has been improved here... so if you were a fan of the original Gravity Rush, then this is a must buy... if you didn't play the first game in the franchise, then don't worry... you're not coming to Gravity Rush so much for the story as you are to just experience a unique world, with a likable main protagonist, a game with lots of charm, and is a lot of fun to play just as long as the camera is playing nice... which leads me to one of the few flaws in Gravity Rush. The camera. It is somewhat understandable why the camera can almost break at times. You're flying through the air at breakneck speeds, with full 360 degree movement. When the camera does become an issue, and causes you to take needless damage, or miss an objective. It is just pure frustration. Thankfully the camera doesn't break the game... but for me the poor camera brings the score down from 5 stars to 4 stars.

    It's not often a game gets released these days that doesn't in at least some way copy previous formulas, but the Gravity Rush series absolutely qualifies as an original. The original was an underappreciated classic on the PS Vita (available on PS4, but difficult to find and lacking the touch screen features of the Vita), and the sequel is just as fun a trip. The mechanics of the game revolve around your character being able to alter the direction of gravity in a fully 3-D environment. The effects are temporary, but can be improved upon as you level up. This has effects in both platforming and combat as you collect power-ups and fight creatures alike. I will warn those that suffer from motion sickness that this game can be VERY disorienting, and I've had to limit myself to brief spurts of it as a result. Still, absolutely give it a shot; I think you'll find it as unique a game as there is available today.

    Ever since I first bought my PS Vita and played Gravity Rush all the way through, i've been all for a continuation of the series. Finally it's here, and after playing through a good 20 hours or so, I got to admit it's a very good game, but just kind of a decent sequel. Sure, there's a good amount of new in it, but it really just feels like more of the first game. The gameplay is fantastic, flying around is soothing and combat is so incredibly flashy and anime-feeling that I never felt bored. The story is just kind of okay, it doesn't have much to do with the first one, it feels like it's own tame beast. Side missions are mostly good, a lot of them involve talking to one person and then flying to the next location talking to another person. The side mission plot lines are very concise and enjoyable though. Overall, it's a great game. If you enjoyed the first and just want more of that it's great, if you enjoyed the first and wanted a fresh sequel with never ending improvements then maybe buy this at a discount.

    A Greater Whole than its Parts

    Gravity Rush 2 is a flawed gem. With a wonderful world full of lovable, vibrant characters that you can freely explore by falling through the air in any which way by bending gravity at will. With a wonderful musical score accompanying you all the way, there is much to love. Though, like a rough diamond, there are negatives. The game has a camera that can certainly take getting used to, and even once you do can throw you into situations that throw you off regardless. Some of the mission structures are also repeated too much, which is a shame whenever they involve limiting you from using your Gravity-Shifting powers. The game, however, is one that you will love if you allow yourself to get lost in. Simple traversal is fun. Photography mode encourages you to pay more attention to your surroundings as if you were really there. The supporting cast is all wonderful. I can't suggest this game to everyone, but for anyone willing to give different types of games a shot, Gravity Rush 2 is wonderful.

    This is a very quirky and fun game that revolves around a unique gravity-defying mechanic, that the story, characters and gameplay all coherently revolve around. If you played the first game than this is a big improvement as well. The game size and missions are vastly expanded and the graphics have been vastly improved but still retains the unique look the first game had. The story is also improved from the first game, and from the gripping atmospheric opening where you descend into a mining area you can already tell this. Probably the biggest improvement however is the gameplay additions. Just when you think the gameplay might get a bit stale or repetitive, a brand new mechanic is introduced and shakes things up entirely, and then another one after that. All in all, this is my favorite game to come out, early in this year, and it's a very unique game in terms of gameplay, visual look, characters and story, and a big improvement in all areas from the first game.

    It's rare to find a sequel that tinkers with what made the original fun and universally manages to make everything better, but Gravity Rush 2 did it. Controls are smoother and more intuitive than either the original game or its PS4 port. Exploration is more fun as the maps became much less two dimensional. The addition of two new gravity styles allows you to mix up combat and exploration more. The sidequests are mostly semi-unique and manage to develop character, setting, or both in addition to giving you more things to do. Kat is still a breath of fresh air as a protagonist, and being joined by a fun character like Raven as her deuteragonist and foil makes the game even more enjoyable. The rest of the named cast are mostly two dimensional cliches, but still likable characters that you can't help feeling attached to. All in all, a great second entry in what I hope will be an ongoing series. Highly recommended.

    Gravity Rush 2, the sequel to the acclaimed Gravity Rush, is an amazing game and a great follow-up to it's predecessor. Improving upon it's predecessor in every way, Gravity Rush 2 offers fun, snappy combat with unique gravity mechanics that you won't find anywhere else. The visuals are amazingly beautiful and are assentuated by it's unique art direction. The world is vibrant and feels very distinct. The vibrant world is made even better with it's unique and diverse cast of characters. The writing is great and lots of fun, and the main character, Kat, is very charming and likable. Gravity Rush 2 is one of the most unique and most fun open-world games available. The fun combat, unique mechanics, beautiful visual, rewarding RPG elements and pleasant soundtrack mesh together to form an amazing package that all PS4 owners should consider giving a try.

    The sequel to the 2012 Vita game Gravity Rush, Gravity Rush 2 takes place an undetermined but relatively short time after the events of the first game. However, it takes place in an entirely new region. New players may be a bit confused as to who the old characters are, but the game does a decent job of establishing the important bits throughout. For old players, it's great to see the old crew again and to see them in a new storyline. Gameplay is that of a 3d platformer mixed with hack&slash and TPS elements mixed in. The real draw, however, is the unique Gravity mechanic that enables Kat to shift the way gravity works, changing up to down and left to right at a whim. The game handles incredibly well and the amount of overall freedom the game gives throughout is leagues above the first game. It's also incredibly gorgeous, artistically.

    Let me start by saying I loved the original Gravity rush on the PS Vita so I was excited when I heard a sequel was announced even though it wasn't coming to the Vita (I already knew why lol). The game is an open world Japanese art style game about a girl named Kat who has the power to shift gravity along with her faithful partner Dusty (an actual cat) and Raven another girl with her own unique ability's. Both girls must work together to stop a corrupt military from taking over their town. Great graphics along with nice powers to use and even motion controls that work very well. I definitely recommend this game along with Gravity Rush remastered (updated version of the PS Vita version for ps4) to any ps4 owner.

    My video gaming is limited. I only just got back into it in June 2016 when I purchased a PS4 in anticipation of Gran Turismo Sport. However, I viewed gameplaydy of a few other games and Gravity Rush 2 was one. I have only played it a short time as I am now playing NieR: Automata, but from the mysterious opening to the initial beginning gameplay, I am looking forward to delving into the world. These days, the opening of a video game is like the opening of a good novel. If it hooks you in the beginning, you invest the time in the rest of it. I feel this way about Gravity Rush 2. I just hope the journey will be just as captivating as the opening.

    This games offers a great story with lots of missions in a very richly detailed open world. I enjoy the "cell-shading" type of drawings and the comic character style interaction when characters talk to each other. It is different from most games. This games has a suite of challenge missions in which you can compete against ghosts, and there are mining loot runs in which you face poor odds for rich rewards. I like the floating/flying actions of trying to collect gems that increase your ability to level up. Some may describe this as a treasure hunting game, which it is to a certain extend; but there is so much more. Definitely a fun way to spend a weekend.

    A direct sequel to the first one on VITA or the HD Remastered ver. on PS4, this game visually is gorgeous. At times you find yourself tilting your head in real life just to keep up with the gravity physics which just shows how well this game can and will pull you in. Costumes are great looking but sadly most of the good ones are locked to you unless you pre-ordered it, played or have the first game installed and some you won't even get unless your region is Japan (Lame). My only real gripe with this game is the constant "search this giant area for one tiny person" type missions. It was challenging at first but later on it gets repetitive and honestly annoying. Overall though a great PS4 exclusive to add to your collection.

    Pro: Unbelievably beautiful and lively world. Amazing design and artwork. Free online play that doesn't require PS+ One of a kind gameplay. Awesome soundtrack ranging from Classical all the way to Jazz. Con: Stretched out side mission feels like a chore. Camera issues (Be weary if you get dizzy easily) 30 fps + occasional frame dip. An incredibly niche title that isn't afraid to be different from the rest of the market, Gravity Rush 2 is probably one of my favorite Playstation game to date with its bold approach. While the game really didn't take off in the West, I would recommend this game to anyone who's interested in a fantastical adventure.

    Possibly even better than the first

    I played the first Gravity Rush and loved it, and this one is easily equal if not maybe even better than the first. For those wondering, this is a stand alone story so playing the first one is NOT required at all in order to play and enjoy the game. You will however likely miss the many references to the first game, but nothing story changing. And one last little note on the side, this game, unlike almost all others it seems now days, you can unlock the vast majority of all the available costumes in game, no DLC required. And speaking of DLC, they will also be releasing a FREE DLC in March to add even more to the story, which is already rich to begin with. Essentially, there is a ton to do in a very well developed game.

    Absurdly Underrated Series

    It is a shame that Gravity Rush does not get more attention. This series had the misfortune of making its debut on the failed PS Vita, but this is easily one of the best series available on the PS4. The first game is remastered and available on the PS4, but this game is a beautiful followup and makes many improvements over the first. The visuals and music are gorgeous and flying through the air manipulating gravity is an incredibly fun experience. This is a sadly underrated gem, but is absolutely a must have for any PS4 owner.

    Gravity Rush was arguably the only good game on the Vita that actually used all its hardware input features in any meaningful way, and as a result left quite an impact on me. I find this sequel to be a completely competent follow up, probably, it's even a better game all told, but somehow it just didn't impress me as much. Considering how often both games hit the $20 mark I think one could do a lot worse with their money, but if you've held off this long you might as well wait for an eventual "Gravity Rush Collection" to come out instead.

    I'll admit that this isn't a game that I would normally buy based off the cover alone. My friends would not stop talking about how good it was and after seeing gushing reviews online I decided to finally relent. I'm honestly engrossed by the story, which would be enough alone without the incredibly lush and vibrant graphics, interesting characters, and fluid game play. I'm only several hours in, but I can already tell I made the right choice in giving this game a shot.

    Gravity Rush 2 is an excellent experience and in every way an improvement from the first entry in the series. Gameplay has become more varied with the addition of various combat modes that change how Kat shifts gravity, the open world is much bigger thanks to the power of the PS4, and the story is more ambitious. What has not changed is the quirky and funny writing of the story and all the fun and unique (save one or two) side quests the game provides. The soundtrack is also excellent! Highly recommend this to any fans of the first game or anyone who enjoys anime-inspired open world games!

    A Sequel That Surpasses the Original

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    There are few sequels that do a better job than the original, and Gravity Rush 2 is just that. The game expands on several mechanics of the first game, while also doing them well. Usually, sequels tend to bloat the game with unnecessary features that bog down a streamlined experience, however GR2 doesn't do any of that, and simply refines the original experience with new mechanics. If you're just curious about the Gravity Rush world and don't care much for the story of the original, this is a MUST BUY.
