Description official descriptions
Sonic returns for a second outing on the Game Boy Advance.
Once again, Sonic is called upon to save the world from the evil Dr. Eggman. On this occasion, Sonic is joined by friends Tails, Knuckles and Cream and rabbit, the latest addition to the Sonic team. Each comes with a set of unique moves, allowing you to reach certain areas through-out the levels. However, unlike Sonic Advance, you must compelte the game as Sonic to unlock the other characters.
Chaos Emeralds and Special Rings litter the stages. To collect the emeralds (transforming Sonic into Super Sonic for the final battle with Dr. Eggman), you must find the special rings hidden in each stage to unlock the bonus stage. Complete the bonus stage and the emerald is yours.
You'll also get the chance to collect and raise chaos, and trade them over to Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on Gamecube, through the use of the GBA/GC link cable.

If you played the first Sonic Advance, you know it was a classic sonic adventure with all the classic characters (Sonic and buddies, Eggman...). Well, Sonic Advance 2 is the same thing, but improved in many ways.
The graphics are very good, with nice colors. The music is quite good too. But that's the least for a Sonic game...
The story... well, it's again Dr. Eggman trying to take over the world with Chaos Emeralds... The game features the old trio Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and a new character, Cream, a cute rabbit-girl. Each has specific skills and moves.
The gameplay is faster than in any previous Sonic game. It is REALLY fast. Sonic goes through acts at light speed. The ones who thought Sonic Advance 1 was not fast enough will love this sequel, because, seriously, you'll not have time to be bored...
It is quite simple : the game is TOO fast. Sometimes you just have to hols "right" until the end of the level. Sometimes you won't be quick enough to press "jump" before it's too late. Sometimes you just don't see what's going on anymore. It becomes very frustrating as you progress in the game. Sonic must also run during the boss battles. Because of that, the bosses are very hard. First boss is OK, the next is incredibly hard. I must have died ten times ! And it was ONLY THE SECOND ONE !
The Bottom Line
If you like Sonic and you have bionic reflexes, this game is for you !

The robot you confront during the game's Special Stages is actually Zero from Sonic Adventure.
