All the levels are fun to play and are not to hard but the Boss Fights are still a bit too easy for me. Better than Sonic 1 Expand

The gameplay, soundtrack, level design and overall feel of this title was absolutely superb. Heck, It might be the best platformer in that genre made. It's just THAT good. My only worry was that you couldn't play as my favourite character in the entire franchise Tales, as he is delegated to background duties until the third game. Either way I would recommend 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2' to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced, racing style experience in a sitting. Play. It. Now! Expand

More polished mechanics, like being able to throw yourself into a ball and more levels to play through. You can see that the game is more worked than in its first part. SEGA did the rest in the continuation of its great success. It's a masterpiece, no doubt, but I'm still more fond of the first one. Expand

That makes my opinion of it entirely adult, and while that makes its larger size harder to stomach because of its lack of saving, it does improve the gameplay experience of the original to a more comfortable state.

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a better game (not much) and more difficult than the first. It has more diversity of levels and game design. TheSonic the Hedgehog 2 is a better game (not much) and more difficult than the first. It has more diversity of levels and game design. The addition of Super Sonic is very nice. The music continues kind of bad(opinion). And the history doesn't matter again. Expand
