Hailed as one of the most successful Mega Drive games, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 garnered critical acclaim swiftly after its 1992 release. Follow Sonic and Tails (in his debut!) as they team up against Dr. Eggman in order to save the Chaos Emeralds from the clutches of evil. Sonic The Hedgehog 2 introduced a competitive two-player mode that will be available once more, along with newly added features such as drop dash, rankings, time trial, and Knuckles!

All in all, Sonic 2 is still a great game this time wrapped in a very nice package. The new modes make the game more accessible than ever, while still retaining the core Sonic experience. While there are some nice details, like being able to switch between versions of the game and the Sonic & Knuckles lock-on cart appearing when selecting the echidna's mode, the lack of widescreen support is very strange.

A brilliant presentation of a fantastic platformer, with a reasonable helping of extra features (some useful, others fairly throwaway). If you haven't played Sonic 2 before it's a must-have: whether it's worth buying if you already have the game in some other form, though, is questionable.

Team M2 has done another masterful job with this Sega Ages release and it’s another must-have as far as I’m concerned.
