Marginally better than the first Sonic Drift. Decent graphics, control and music await you. If you're a fan of this type of game, then you're sure to like it. However, what we really need is an Uberconsole update to this series..

Douze circuits, sept concurrents et le goût de Mario Kart sur GG. Dans son genre, Sonic se défend plutôt bien.
Power Sonic
Houve algumas mudanças, mas nada que alterasse o resultado finais do jogo se comparado com o anterior. Os gráficos receberam uma pequena melhora, ainda sim significativa, o que pode render ao jogo uma vendagem mais que a do primeiro. O áudio continua no mesmo esquema, Mono, com muita semelhança do Nintendo 8-bits, mas as músicas tiveram um pequeno aperfeiçoamento, mais elaboradas, combinando mais com os jogos tradicionais do Sonic.
Overall, Sonic Drift 2 is a satisfying gaming experience. From a technical stand point, the game shines with colorful detailed graphics and a great soundtrack. The game play is fast and smooth, and between the 18 tracks and 7 characters, there is plenty of replay value. Game Gear owners owe it to themselves to track this little gem and give it a go.

Hairpin turns, bombs in the road, and competitors who never give up make Sonic Drift 2 Game Gear racing at its best.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Sonic Drift 2 is a Mario Kart clone in nearly every way. There are more characters than the original, but there doesn't seem to be enough differences between the characters. This game would have been better suited to the Saturn. As a portable game, Sonic Drift 2 is just okay. The continual flashing as the road passed by gives me a major headache. The fact that you can play as mecha Sonic earned this game an extra point. Sonic Drift is okay. Not the best, just okay.
SEGA-Mag (Objectif-SEGA)
Les développeurs de SEGA Japon signent ici, une suite qui fait un drift moyennement contrôlé. En effet, les pilotes du premier épisode seront un peu déçus de retrouver exactement les mêmes modes de jeu dans cette suite. Trois personnages en plus (Fang The Sniper, Knuckles The Echidna ainsi que l'un des personnages emblématiques de la licence: Metal Sonic), de nouveaux circuits et puis, c'est à peu près tout si on omet les nouveaux bonus box et les obstacles qui apparaissent sur les circuits. Toutefois, il ne faut pas oublier que ce Sonic Drift Racing (Sonic Drift 2) est aussi le seul et unique opus à être sorti sur le Vieux Continent et pour les possesseurs de la console portable couleur du créateur de la Sega Saturn, c'est quand même un titre à découvrir d'autant plus que les paysages ainsi que les mélodies sont vraiment géniales.
