Game Description & Reviews:
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was the folowup to the megahit Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis.
I played this quite a bit back in the day and decided to play it again just to see if it held up well after all these years. And I was genuinely surprised to say that It holds up exceedingly well considering that this came out 26 years ago. Aside from the draw distance, this game really holds up quite well.
Sonic 2 is more of Sonic with the addition of Tails, but I really never bothered with Tails that much even as a kid. It has more levels, the level design is more streamlined and it introduces a new move called the spin dash in which you can gain speed instantly unlike in Sonic 1 where you have to run to gain speed.
The level designs are done quite well especially the casino level where players could easily waste their time in getting extra lives or just messing around with the casino inspired surroundings.
Sonic 2 is Sonic 1 with more streamlined levels, more interesting boss battles, it's more of Sonic for fans of that blue hedgehog.
Following up the awesome first entry on the series, Sega releases Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on 1992. Building up on its predecessor's fame, gameplay and speed, it went to became one of the biggest sellers in Sega Megadrive/Genesis history.
This time, the formula is basically the same from the last installment, however, we got a new face here. Enter Miles "Tails" Prower, a small two-tailed fox (that can be controlled by player 2, or the CPU) who, amazed by Sonic attitude, speed and heroism, proclaims himself the sidekick of our blue hazed hero, while facing again the evils of Dr. Ivo Robotnik (Eggman in Japan), saving the world once again from total domination, via Dr. Robotnik's Death Egg.
However, Sonic changed and got faster. He got himself a new move under his sleeves, the spin dash. With this move he can roll, rev himself up in place and when released, he unleashes his full speed. Tails can do this too, actually.
Also, this time, the Chaos Emeralds are not merely for show or completionism sake. Get the 7 Chaos Emeralds in this installment, quite well hidden inside the half-pipe-like special zones, get 50 rings and jump: Sonic turns himself into Super Sonic, with invencibility (except to crushing, drowning or falling to pits), high jumps, hyperspeed and golden colored fur to match.
With 8 zones, 19 levels in total plus 7 special stages, a free for all with Robotnik's creation, Mecha Sonic and one last boss fight with the Dr. himself, this game is one of the longest, and most remembered entries in the whole Sonic series, sporting several of the most definite moves and gameplay, which would go on to define the shape of Sonic games for years to come.
Finally, to top it all, did you know this game has a 2 player versus racing mode? You can compete with Player 2 on who takes the shortest to complete one of 3 scenes, or who can grab more rings in the special zones.
If you thought that the first Sonic game was awesome well think again, Sega really made Sonic Run to and all new level, polished what they already had and make it even better with 8 new levels, a new buddy named Tails Miles Prower and new bonus stages, winning on the bonus stages gives you a Chaos emerald, if sonic gathers all seven and gathers fifty rings he can transform in to Super Sonic! Faster and stronger going through the levels will be a breeze, but if all of the rings you have are consumed sonic will return to normal.
You can choose To go with sonic and tails as a team or you can go solo with sonic or tails and go head to head against the evil Dr. Robotnik and free all of the animals that have been captured be him and transformed in to robots to build his empire.
Vibrant colors, an awesome soundtrack and the huge speed of sonic make Sonic 2 one of sega’s best platformer games for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis
I can't remember having this much fun playing a single player platformer in a while. Sonic returns in this game with his friend, Tails. I actually played this game for almost 3 hours straight. You will be addicted to the fast gameplay, puzzles, music and all the action. Personally, level wise, this is my favorite Sonic games. You have your classic levels just as hills, power plants, mountains, mines, ruins, and casinos. I hope you enjoy this game as much as I do.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is a fast action/platformer game made for the Sega Genesis in 1992. it consists of eight zones: Emerald Hill, Chemical Plant, Aquatic Ruin, Casino Night, Hill Top, Metropolis, Wing Fortress, and Death Egg. Emerald Hill, Chemical Plant, Aquatic Ruin, Casino Night, and Hill Top each have two acts, the first act being the first part of the zone and the second act being the boss part. Metropolis has three acts, the first two acts are the first parts while the third act is the boss part of the zone. Winged Fortress starts off with Sonic riding on Tails's plane. You head towards the Winged Fortress, which I'm guessing is a plane, and after that zone you head on to the Death Egg where you face a new enemy that has not appeared in the first Sonic The Hedgehog game, Metal Sonic. After you defeat Metal Sonic you go on to face Dr. Robotnik (Dr. Eggman in Japan). The game is really fun and is 5/5 stars to me. I cannot stop playing this game it is the best Genesis game I have ever played in my life. You will be easily addicted to this game. Sonic has his friend Tails with him in this game, in the "Options" menu you get to choose between having both Sonic and Tails together, having Sonic alone, or you can have Tails alone. This game is exciting and addicting and fun and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fast-paced action platformers. Download now! I guarentee it will NOT be a waste of your time!
