Trivia

Song #10 on the sound test screen was from the Hidden Palace Zone, which didn't make it into the final version of the game. See more »

Goofs

On Emerald Hill Zone Act 2 when facing Dr. Robotnik, Robotnik enters the Scene with a Helicopter that grafts onto a 4 wheeled unit with a Drill in front. When the drill Unit goes past Sonic, He is unaffected, however when Robotnik gets onto it with the Helicopter, He is. See more »

Crazy Credits

The ending credits varies depends on how many Chaos Emeralds you collected in the game:
  • If you collected all 7 Emeralds, Sonic transforms into Super Sonic and fly and pose while soaring. At the end Dr Robotnik will be seen standing angrily.
  • If you didn't collect them all, Sonic will jump off the "Sonic F" plane and pose. Robotnik will be happily juggling the Emeralds you missed.

Alternate Versions

In the late-'80s and early-'90s, Sega Europe released a modified version of the Master System and Mega Drive hardware for use in arcades. The multi-cart system was known as Mega-Tech, and the JAMMA version (Mega Drive only) as Mega Play. The motherboard could host up to eight cartridges at a time, from which players could choose whatever they wanted to play. Among the supported games available for both Mega-Tech and Mega Play were Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) (VG) and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) (VG). The alterations made to this version of Sonic 2 were basically the same as those made to Sonic 1; see "alternate versions" for Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) (VG). See more »

The Game that introduce me to Sonic
3 September 2015 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was the first game I ever played for the series. It was one of the first games I ever had played on the Sega Genesis which is still one of my favorite video game systems since I am a fan of Retro video games

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 shows how a game sequel can be as strong if not more than the original game

Looking back on it the game still proves to be fun, challenging and all around like a fine wine only gets better with age.

The Sega Genesis prove to have a classic library of video games for the system.

Graphics the game features some of the most beautiful on the system even today they are impressive to look at.

The sound with the music and sound effects remain as strong as they did in 1992. Goes to show the game effect on players

The controls are easy to pick up and master if you had play any Sonic game in the past or on the collection games you will be in good hands

The game play is very addicting however it does feature some challenging boss battles and levels that will make you go crazy

Overall if you love old school classics do yourself a favor and pick up Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and if you're lucky you might find it on Sega Mega Collection or Sonic Collection

I give Sonic The Hedgehog 2 an 9 out of 10
