Even better than the first game!,
This review is from: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 [Download] (Software Download)
If you enjoyed the first Sonic, you'll get a major kick out of its sequel. While we all know we get to play as Sonic, there's a new kid in town, and he helps Sonic in his second outing. Tails is supposed to be Sonic's sidekick. Characters aside, let's talk about the gameplay. The gameplay is identical to Sonic 1's, but with several differences going on in-game.
1. The spin dash move is introduced
2. 7 full zones with 3 1-act ones.
4. Different Special Stages
The special stages are entirely different from the first game. Now you must run through a halfpipe, collecting rings to get Chaos Emeralds. However, this is easier said than done. The sound and music are, once again, excellent. The graphics are also great, as they are an improvement of Sonic 1's.
What's really great about this game is the multiplayer mode. While you do have to compete against the other player in finishing the levels first (or getting higher scores), you guys also have to beat those 4 multiplayer zones altogether!
Overall, the game is awesome and challenging. This is the Sonic game all fans should get.
