    This line of 3D Classics has been a great tribute to retro gaming, so far serving up 3D enhanced versions of some of the finest titles in SEGA's large catalogue of wonderful games, and, naturally, gives new fans a try at discovering them for the first time.

    3D Sonic 2 is one of the best 2D platformers from the 16-bit era, and this "SEGA 3D Classic" version offers the very same game with new additions like the "Ring Keeper Mode", making it a very enjoyable (and cheap) trip to the past of one of the most iconic characters in SEGA's history. And, indeed, to one of its best games.

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a game of massive highs and crushing lows. Thankfully, M2 and Sega have made those lows much less frustrating in this 3D version, making this the definitive way to play this imperfect, but essential, classic.

    3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is quite simply the greatest conversion that could be done with Sega's magnificent platformer. The best Sonic game of all time lost none of its appeal during its journey to the 3DS and is still as delightful to play as it was over 20 years ago.

    M2 has once again produced a commendable presentation of a classic for the 3DS with 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It continues to be a fun game after all these years (and way better than whatever Sega's been churning out with the blue guy the last couple of years), and the 3D conversion is simply fantastic. Vintage Sega fans – and new players as well – shouldn't miss this gem.

    It has not aged perfectly, but Sonic The Hedgehog 2 still remains one of the finest 2D platformers ever made. The 3D Classics treatment gives both fans and newcomers the possibility to play this gem in its definitive version, but also lets us think about the fall of this iconic character.

    One of the finest games of its age, but still a 1992 title that has been bought and played eight million times. So, take that for what it is.

Oh how I long for the simpler plug n play days of the Genesis, Super NES, Neo Geo, and Turbo Grafx 16. There was something about that era that's missing in Today's world of online required, DLC and patch mandated rush jobs...It's called life! 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for 3DS gushes life and sparkles with an inner quality that humbles most current games. Fun, challenging, and infinitely repayable, this is an absolute must buy for any proud 3DS owner. I've become such an M2 fanboy that I would purchase a cartridge system if they were to release one. Please add this game to your collection poste haste! Now all I need is a 3D Sega Strider (Genesis version) and 3D Golden Axe. You keep making them Sega/M2, and we'll keep buying them. Thank you♡ Expand

If you liked the original Sonic 2, this is a must buy, but don't be fooled, there is nothing new here, thankfully. It is literally the same game ported over, a game I have happily bought a dozen times on a dozen different systems now. Expand

    this game. is very good. honestly one of the better ports of sonic 2, but not without its problems. the creators of this seem to have left inthis game. is very good. honestly one of the better ports of sonic 2, but not without its problems. the creators of this seem to have left in every bug the original genesis version had, which if u enjoy that sort of thing its good, but i would rather play the game in a better state than this one provides. along with this there is also the issue of occasional bugs and slightly strange emulation from time to time, but there isnt any slow down and in terms of portable sonic 2 this is the best youre going to get with tactile controls, so its pretty much go-to unless u can manage playing on an iphone or android, which is the superior version, but has touch controls. overall, really good.
