There's little animations before you start your zone that make the game feel more lively as well. With new tricks added to grinding, ramps, and bumpers, it adds a new layer of precision to objects that used to fling you around where you had no input while you were flying by.
This game is better, stronger, and faster than the first Sonic Advance. It leads the game to feel more epic and thrilling, and the running boss fights are an excellent addition, but also quite challenging.
Probably the only thing that has always bugged me was how difficult finding the special rings are. It's particularly difficult as you will likely fly past one without realizing, and you must make a certain path to each one. Some are intuitive to find, but others are so far off the beaten path. I've spent hours in a zone searching, and that's just not fun. Still, the extra boss is great and was worth the torment.
Overall, this game builds upon the first and makes it much better. On the other hand, must won't see the whole game through because of how difficult finding those special rings are.… Full Review »
