Sonic Advance 2 fars surpasses its first outing with graphics, moves and new characters. One good thing I noticed was that you only had Sonic at the beginning and you had to unlock the other four, Cream the rabbit and her Chao Cheese, Tails the two tailed fox, Knuckles the echidna and finally Amy Rose the pink hedgehog.
This offered challenge as you had to fight Eggman in order to play as your friends.
The game offers much more tactical moves in order to help you reach higher places or to find secret items or simply to survive. Such as when you are flying through the air and you want to get to a far off platform, you can press both the direction you are heading and the R button and you will gain a small bit of speed to help get there.
The acts and zones are much longer than Sonic Advance which gives you more room to explore and makes it more challenging to find the seven special rings which take you to the special stages in order to find the seven Choas Emeralds.
The boss fights with Eggman have been completely changed. Now you are constantly running and Eggman has a huge machine and has many traps to attack you. Rings appear as you run so use them wisely. He is no push over as some of the bosses have very weel been thought of and it also depends on which character you are using. In my opinion Cream is the best character ti use.
Now with the characters. As usual Sonic is the fastest character, good jumper and has aerobatic moves. Sonic can be used to clear the acts of the zones quickly and to get rid of enemies that can be annoying.Read more ›
The main problem is how you fight the bosses. The Boss Fights have been re-designed, resulting in you chasing them rather than fighting them in an "arena" like in the previous Sonic games. This was a terrible idea as I didn't enjoy the boss fights as much as before (and I love a good boss fight). They should have had our heros fight the boss in an "arena" like in previous games.
However, the new Burst Mode is excellent. It was a nice new feature to the game. I also liked the new Trick moves. It took me a few minutes to work out how they were done, but once you get the hang of it, they're gread. Is it me, or does Sonic's
R + -> move remind you of Chaotix's Espio?
The game has some good charatcers, each with their strengths and weaknesses and signature abilities. Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are as good as they've always been. Cream is a bit iffy as she makes the game to easy. She's a good character, but her Chao Cheese just makes it to easy for my liking. Sega have made many characters over the 10 years and it would have been better to see an old classic like Shadow from Sonic Adventure 2 or Espio from Knuckles Chaotix being re-used (although they are both in the new game Sonic Heroes).
The game's lifespan is excellent. This time you need to get Seven Special Rings which are littered through out the level. You really need to do some serious exporing to get them (I presonally reccomend the stratagy guide as the map in it REALLY helps). Plus the special stages are great fun to play. They can be challenging (especally the last to), but still fun to play.Read more ›
to get to the special stages you have to collect 7 special rings on one level (act) and finish the level. the acctual special stage is a lot easier than on sonic advance 1 (what a relief!)
the charactors you can play as are sonic (which you have at first) then cream (who a new charactor,is unlocked on zone 1) Tails (unlocked on zone 3) knuckles (zone 5) then amy, who is unlocked when u completly compleate the game.
I definatly recomend this game because... its the best basicly!
