Those that fell – in mul­ti­ple directions – for the orig­i­nal Grav­ity Rush did so in part for its sound­track, and com­poser Ko­hei Tanaka has re­turned for the se­quel. Tanaka works pri­mar­ily in anime and film – Grav­ity Rush aside, his only videogame work has been on Alun­dra and the Sakura Wars se­ries. As such there’s a dra­matic, filmic qual­ity to his work, and like its pre­de­ces­sor, Grav­ity Rush 2 is all the bet­ter for it. Inevitably, how­ever, there’s a bum note: the piece that plays on an in­fi­nite loop in one of two ma­jor hub worlds, Jirga Para Lhao, is an­noy­ing enough at first. Ten hours later, once you’ve re­alised it sounds a lit­tle too much like We Wish You A Merry Christ­mas, you’ll be reach­ing for the mute but­ton.
