Sonic Drift 2 features seven playable characters: Sonic, Tails, Amy, Eggman, Knuckles, Fang, and Metal Sonic. Each racer has their own special ability, such as short speed boosts or dropping mines onto the race track.

    Yuuhuuu!!! More Game Gear love.^_^
    And hope this game shows to fans who question why Sonic uses car in Sonic and Sega Allstar racing. Sonic also uses cars in all the drift series there.

    … Man, I had no idea this game even EXISTED back then. I wonder if the fandom went “but why does Sonic need a car” back then, too.

      I still can’t believe people say that. How would it be fair otherwise? :/

      Do they think about it? I mean, they have to think something about it. Since they make it a point to ask the question, but if they thought about the question, they’d find the answer…

      Ugg… pet peeve of mine.

        Funny thing that I think, is that no one ever seems to consider how Tails is practically as fast as Sonic. Heck, so is Knuckles and Metal Sonic when they want to be, since they can at least keep up with him in the games. At times I wonder if the only reason they don’t try to overtake him is because Sonic just has a very fragile ego.
