Som alla begriper är Sonic 2 byggt på det första spelet. Man känner igen sig och behöver sällan fundera särskilt länge för att komma underfund med hur saker och ting ska gå till, men man måste ju göra't också...! Skulle man vara nybörjare, så blir Sonic 2 en häftig upplevelse! Detta spel är ett måste för varje Master System-ägare - den SEGA-spelare som inte har Sonic, är som en seriefantast som aldrig läst Kalle Anka. Så det så.

Les chiffres parlent pour nous : Sonic the Hedgehog 2 est le jeu le plus vendu sur la Megadrive. Les développeurs de chez SEGA ont su récupérer ce qui a fait le succès du premier volet (gameplay, level design) et ont ajouté une bonne dose de nouveautés. Un excellent jeu, qui encore aujourd’hui fait figure de référence en matière de jeu de plates-formes en 2D.

Och möjligtvis har nå'n sagt att Sonic 2 egentligen bara är Sonic 1, aningen svårare och med några extrafinesser. Förhoppningsvis förklarade de också att detta minsann inte är fy skam.

Definitely a game to buy if you own the console -- this is a surprisingly different Sonic game with plenty of replay value. Shame about the lack of two-player, but then again, this is an 8-bit machine.

Insomma questo Sonic the Hedgehog 2 è un gioco molto divertente e ben realizzato, che non regge il confronto col suo predecessore a causa di un alternanza di qualità sia tecnica sia di gameplay che affligge i vari livelli, soprattutto il primo, troppo lineare e afflitto dalla presenza massiccia dei summenzionati carrelli. Per fortuna successivamente si trovano anche livelli di innegabile qualità e dal level design più ispirato.

Sonic would be proud of this game. I can't sing the praises of this game enough. Sega put a lot of effort into this game and it shows. They could have just 'phoned in' a half-baked original game or a scaled-down version of the 16-bit game but they didn't. If you are a Sonic fan, this full-scale game will not let you down, there's a lot to explore and you will have a good time doing it. If you've never tried a Sonic game (is there anyone?), what you will find is a fast-paced side scrolling portable action/platform/adventure game that can be considered an evolution of the Super Mario series (circa NES/Gameboy editions). Sonic's second adventure for the Game Gear is not as good as his games on the Genesis but it is pretty damn close.

Sonic 2 foi um game promissor. É difícil saber se seu antecessor é melhor ou não, pois os dois títulos são ótimos e agradam a todos por sua imensa diversão e simplicidade. O gráfico de Sonic The Hedgehog 2 recebeu uma pequena melhora. Pode não parecer, mas os sprites de Sonic estão mais bem acabados e possuem mais animações. Os cenários estão mais coloridos e mais bem elaborados, como a Sky High Zone. Seu primeiro ato, várias nuvens encobrem o céu. No segundo ato, uma chuva torrencial cobre o local e as nuvens estão carregadas de raios. Além do mais novos elementos foram adicionados a cada fase, criando um diferencial (como a asa delta ou o carrinho de mina).

Sorti un peu dans l’ombre de l’opus MegaDrive, cette version 8-bit n’est pas moins excellente malgré une bonne difficulté corsée. Encore un bon Sonic sur la console portable de SEGA.

Pari réussi pour Sega avec ce deuxième épisode de Sonic sur Game Gear. Tout en restant dans la droite lignée de son prédécesseur, le titre apporte des nouveautés qui sont une véritable bouffée d'air frais pour la série, que ce soit d'un point de vue esthétique ou au niveau du gameplay. Doté d'une maniabilité toujours aussi performante, et d'une animation sans faille, il se place sans conteste parmi les meilleurs jeux de plates-formes de la portable de Sega. Une valeur sûre.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 è un buon titolo, solo che non regge il paragone col primo capitolo della serie. Ad ogni modo, considerando la tipologia di gameplay, questa seconda apparizione di Sonic si avvicina molto più che in passato alla versione per Mega Drive, risultando più frenetico e, in alcuni tratti, confusionario. Consiglio di dargli almeno uno sguardo, in rete si trovano molti video, magari lo trovate interessante

Most Wii owners will undoubtedly write off this edition of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Virtual Console, either because they'll just be confused by its title or because they'll erroneously assume that it's a technically inferior port of the Genesis classic with the same name. It's not. Anyone who brushes this one off is doing themselves a disservice, because Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the Master System game, is entirely its own adventure and is well worth its asking price of only five dollars. For those off you out there still burned by the lack of quality in Sonic's latest adventures, do yourself a favor and put down 500 Wii Points for a download of this hidden gem from the hero's early years. Its name is confusing, but its fun factor is clear.

Technisch zeigt sich Sonic 2 von der Schokoladenseite: rasantes Scrolling, abgedrehte Musik, abwechslungsreiche Grafik und liebenswerte Animationen entflammen die Herzen der Game-Gear-Eigner. Bis auf einen verkleinerten Bildschirmausschnitt ist dieses Handheld-Jump'n'Run identisch zur gleichnamigen Master-System-Variante. Die bedauerliche Folge dieser Änderung: So mancher Hinterhalt erkennt man im Geschwindigkeitsrausch zu spät, das Spiel wird phasenweise unfair. Sonic 2 ist eine harte, aber motivierende Herausforderung, der sich jeder Game-Gear-Spieler stellen sollte.

This isn't the highlight of Sonic's early career - that would be the still-absent Sonic & Knuckles - but this is an affordable and enjoyable nugget, and one which puts the hedgehog's recent wretched efforts to shame.

On the whole this game is worth a look for Sonic fans who haven’t yet had a chance to become acquainted with his 8-bit antics before. It is sufficiently different from the first Master System game to warrant a look, however it is noticeably easier this time. It probably goes without saying that the Mega Drive version is a much better game all round, but judging what system this was released for it is hard to complain really, it was a solid purchase at the time and is still worth a look for nostalgic Sega fans today.

Sonic on the Game Gear seems like an odd idea. You would think that it would be incapable of replicating the audio/visual experience of the Genesis as well as the speed. Well, I'm happy to report that Sonic on the Game Gear is quick and the A/V is definitely above par for the Game Gear. There is more of an emphasis on exploring than in previous Sonic games but this in no way detracts from the experience. A must have for Sonic fans.

The boss encounters also tend to suck - especially the first one with the scorpion and the pit. The secret to that one, as it turns out, is to do not much of anything! The idea of facing bosses with no rings is also troublesome. This game isn't bad as Game Gear titles go, but with a name like Sonic, you expect more.

If you purchase the game despite this warning (at least it's inexpensive), you'll play the first few levels for yourself and discover the unreasonable gameplay begrudging you progress, even from the onset. You'll likely give up soon after that, like so many of my peers who own the game have. But if you don't mind cheating to give yourself the chance to chip away at the concrete odds, the chance that Sega should have furnished you - then you'll find a tasty drop of very addicting joy in the opportunity to try your hand at the impossible. This is not to say that unlimited lives or continues would turn Sonic 2 into a winner. (For a winner, get Ristar for your Game Gear. Replaying it after I played this, elicited from me: ''Wow, the Game Gear can do some amazing shit after all!'') The way the game kills you outside your vision is still inexcusable, and Sonic 2 is a loser in any estimation.
