The Video Game Critic
Paperboy 2 is undeniably fun but very rough around the edges. Especially for the SNES, the visuals look awfully chunky and the animation is rough. It's hard to judge your position with respect to obstacles and ramps, and it doesn't help that the collision detection is extremely unforgiving. It's next-to-impossible to execute tight turns, and you'll have to contend with cheap shots from cannons and fireball-spewing gargoyles. In many cases the houses are so far off the street that you can't even see if the newspaper made it to the mailbox, and have to rely on audio cues instead. Paperboy 2 has a likeable, whimsical style that will appeal to arcade gamers, but it's not the blockbuster sequel I was expecting.

Grafisch präsentiert sich das 'Zeitungsgeschäft' sehr bescheiden und wird dem SuperNES in keinster Weise gerecht. Dasselbe gilt für den Sound, der sang- und klanglos vor sich herdüdelt und nur durch die Effekte eine Spur Abwechslung bekommt. Vor Jahren konnte Paperboy durchaus motivieren, doch heutzutage, da es wesentlich weiterentwickelte, komplexere Spiele gibt, kann ich es höchstens hartgesottenen Fans des Knaben empfehlen – oder Mädels, die es satt haben, immer nur mit dem Boy zu spielen...

Donc, si par malchance vous croisez un quelconque Paperboy (1 ou 2), détournez votre regard et passez à autre chose, car cela n'en vaut vraiment pas la peine.
All Game Guide
Fans of the original Paperboy will probably like this game, but in terms of graphics, gameplay and controls, Paperboy 2 is a dud.
