This is one of those games and only the second game (the other being Metal Gear Solid) that i have deemed worthy of a perfect 10 on Metacritic. I'm not one to go overboard with my reviews but this is probably the greatest 2D platformer ever and a true classic that even today provides one of gamings biggest adrenaline rushes. Expand

Sega gave us an introduction of the real , fun Sonic. Colorful graphics , solid platforms, nice gameplay and challenging. Expand

    Okay... First things first. Sonic 2 is one of the best 2D platform games of all time. It has one of the best game soundtracks of all time. IOkay... First things first. Sonic 2 is one of the best 2D platform games of all time. It has one of the best game soundtracks of all time. I personally have completed this game more times than any other video game I have ever owned. I LOVE IT!! So... Why rate it as a 1?! THE PORT IS BOTCHED!!! The controls are AWFUL! If you know & love the original, this version is pretty much unplayable. You can't even use the frickin' D-pad... I mean, COME ON!! I love Sonic, but this conversion is an insult. Expand
