    Sonic at his best.

    Sega's first big Genesis game was Sonic the Hedgehog. The original completely left out what other platformers were like before it... slow. Sonic the Hedgehog's formula was fast, and it worked, but the...

    Sonic 2 plays as one of the most impressive and enjoyable 2D platformers in recent history.

    Rated on May 19, 2007 by holywars989

    First of all, it's easy to say that Sonic 2 is a much better, much more fun game than Sonic 1 was. However, because of some tech-cleanups, the game is fairly easier, thanks to the introduction of Soni...

    I can't believe I'm still playing this game.

    Rated on July 23, 2006 by funkymonkey365

    That's a sign of a great game. If you can't stop playing it when you first get it, you've got a very good game, but if you're still playing it 13 or 14 years later then it's a classic. Sonic 2 is the ...

    Sonic in his Genesis glory!

    Rated on September 17, 2009 by FallenBlackWing

    Sonic is back, and better than ever! Sonic 2 gives us some new improvements that the first game didn't have. They added a spin dash attack to the game, which can really help you on getting through hid...

    Sonic 2 is a very solid platformer, although the gameplay gets stagnant during the final stages.

    Rated on January 27, 2005 by PooponyourDog

    I think a lot of people first played Sonic 2 when they originally purchased their Genesis. It was one of those console launch pank in games, and it was a great way to promote the system, the cool comp...

    Everyone says that Sonic 3 & Knuckles(a game that appears when you put Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles into the Genesis at the same time, using the Lock-on feature) is the best Sonic game. But, i...
