In this superior sequel to an arcade classic you are back to deliver some more papers to a not-so-friendly neighborhood. However, this time, you can also play as PaperGirl (so as not to be appear sexist, naturally). The neighbourhoods this time are a little strange, though – all the streets have castles on them! You will also have to dodge the likes of skateboarders, bouncing balls, ghosts (!), and the obligatory workmen carrying furniture or glass. The game has better graphics and is much faster than its predecessor – in fact, I think it's too fast. It also makes crashing into things a frequent occurrence, and your six lives will quickly run out. At least Mindscape adds sound effects to the game this time around, and the obstacles and levels are definitely more diverse than the original. Overall, PaperBoy 2 is an excellent all-around update that doesn't change the tried-and-true concept of the original. The game is as incredibly addictive as ever – so be warned. Two thumbs up, way up!
