5.0 out of 5 stars 20 years ago today 25 Dec 2012
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
..this was the best selling Mega Drive game. There's a reason why the Mega Drive is still popular. I mean, for all the high tech, super-powered abilities of the PS3 and the Wii-U the Mega Drive had such a simple charm. The games had great graphics AND awesome playability.

I remember Xmas in 1992 when I was 12, walking around a snowy Edinburgh and seeing this game displayed proudly in all the toy/game shops. I really wanted it, I thought that it was the coolest thing. Then on Xmas morning I Santa did indeed deliver a Mega Drive. Many, many games came and went but Sonic 2 had classic tenure.

The awesome music, the graphics, the bright, summery levels, and Sonic's way-past-cool pal Tails made this game truly great. There was some controversy at the time that the 3D graphics on the special stages caused epileptic fits but I never got any more than a headache.

Games like this are what made the Mega Drive indispensable. If you still have one...hold onto it. Sonic 2 is now available on the PSN with 12 trophies. If your Mega Drive is gone I recommend that you download it. Sonic 2 is a classic for the ages that will be remembered long after the last memory of FPS trash has faded away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonics back! 25 Oct 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Sonics back and this time he has tails!
A much improved version of sonic 1 in all ways.
An excellent addition too the franchise with sonic new spin move an new power ups.
Plus huge complex levels a true classic.

p.s. If player two pad is in they can control tails!

When this was released in 1992 I was 7 years old. I had received some money before christmas so my mum said I could buy a megadrive game with it but not Sonic 2, my dad took me to the shop and I was begging him to let me get Sonic 2 and he wouldn't let me and I think I didn't have enough money anyway so I ended up buying another game.
When christmas day arrived and I was playing my new game my mum said that there was an extra present for me so I opened it and inside was Sonic 2! My parents had bought it in early as there was going to be a rush to get the game for christmas and if I remember correctly there were a lot of disappointed kids at christmas as the shops completely sold out of Sonic 2's and didn't restock until after christmas. My friend was one of the unlucky ones a his parents left it too late to buy it.
I have had hours of fun playing sonic 2. Me and my mum used to play it, she used to spend ages on the Casino Night Zone playing the slot machine to get the 100 rings that the time would run out.
I really like Sonic 2 I think Tails is a great addition and the levels are really fun, its great that the Sonic Spin Dash was added as it helps you get through enemies and rounds quicker. My favourite part of the game has to be the Special Stages, I think they are the best Special Stages in all of the Sonic games.
With the added bonus of Sonic & Knuckles being released a few years later you could Lock On to that cartridge and play as Knuckles in Sonic 2 with his gliding and wall climbing abilities.
I think Sega should go back to making Megadrive games and sell them for the retro gamers who still love to play on their Megadrive.

My son has been a Sonic fan since he was just a boy. Now he has a boy of his own. He collects Sonic games and this made a wonderful surprise present.
