Rating: Good Jet Moto 2 features fast and furious one-player action, a two-player mode that is truly a blast, and tons more awesome jumps than the original, but I still say it's not worth buying. Like last year's game, there are three characters that are always at the top of the standings, and these dominating characters are different than last year's. The light bikes of The Max, The Technician, and Temujin were tough to beat last year, but the sequel favors heavier bikes like those ridden by Bomber, The Hun, and Steele. It gets boring quickly that the same three characters are always dominating every race. The two-player mode is great, although the traditional horizontal split screen doesn't cut it because you can't see far enough ahead of you to race well. I just switched to the vertical split screen and that worked much better. The music in Jet Moto 2 is cool, but not nearly as the cool as the awesome music in the original, which is strangely missing from the sequel. The gameplay itself is great at first with sweet jumps and a lot more turbos at your disposal than in the original. This is a good game that would be a great game if it weren't for one big problem: it's just too freakin' hard. Like the original, the first three tracks are cool, but then it just gets too hard, even on the easiest difficulty setting. The tracks where you can (and do) fall right off and plummet to your death are particularly annoying. Jet Moto 2 starts out extremely fun, but it's just a pain in the butt in the end. Rent it, but don't buy it.
