I didn't have my own Genesis at that time but I had played some Genesis games. I remember getting a Holiday 1992 issue of EGM in the mail (it was over 300 pages!) and every single editor gave Sonic 2 a perfect score of 10.
Not long after that Sega had a deal where people who bought a Sega Genesis could send away for a free copy of Sonic 2. I could have gone with the Model 2 Genesis but chose the original model because it came with the original Sonic the Hedgehog (thus scoring two games instead of one.)
I was really impressed with Sonic 2. We just didn't see many games back then that could move so fast and the casino level was just amazing. I am generally not a fan of Genesis music but I think Sega outdid themselves with that score. I think the only thing that some people complain about is the addition of Tails but he never really bugged me aside from dying too much.
Hard to believe that twenty years have gone by. I still have my original copy and of course have several later versions of the game on lots of platforms like PC, PS3 and 360.
