Sonic Drift 2, called Sonic Drift Racing in Europe, is a kart racing game for the Game Gear and the sequel to Sonic Drift. It features Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Amy Rose, and Dr. Eggman from the original Sonic Drift. Newly added characters are Knuckles, Fang, and Metal Sonic. As in the last game, players race around a track collecting rings and power-ups.
Gameplay is nearly the same as the original Sonic Drift as the directional pad steers, uses rings for a burst of speed, and the two buttons are used for acceleration and braking. Rings are lost during collisions. The AI of the game is also much smarter and it takes effort to keep the top position. The Item boxes also are not used automatically upon being touched as in the previous game. Instead, an icon appears on the top of the screen and on the directional pad must be pressed to use the item. Only one item can be held at a time. However, the Star and Reverse balls are triggered upon impact and cannot be saved.
Chaos Emeralds are awarded for winning races. If Sonic, Tails, Knuckles or Amy collect all six in the Blue GP, they will face Dr. Eggman in a final race around the Death Egg. If Eggman, Metal Sonic or Nack collect all six in the Blue GP, they will face Sonic in the final race.
Power-ups are scattered throughout each track, with a variety of abilities.
