Posted by tails86 in Wii-kly Reviews Games.

Sonic the world known hedgehog has been running through enemies dashing through loop de loops and foiling Doctor Robotniks evil plans for a long time all the way back since the first sonic the hedgehog back in 91 on the Sega Genesis since then there have been tons of great sonic titles Sonic the hedgehog 2 Sonic 3 Sonic & Knuckles the list goes on. But the title we are going to review is the one that captured my Heart and left me to liking my favorite game character of all time

Wii-kly Reviewers i present to you Sonic The Hedgehog 2.

The Story

After enjoying piece for about a year and befriending a fox by the name of Miles Tails Prower Sonic has receieved a message from Dr. Robotnik  with the help of turning helpless animals of the into robots, forcing them to build his ultimate weapon, the Death Egg.

The Gameplay

To Move Sonic use the direction buttons going left or right and to Spin Jump press the A Button or 2 button depending on your controller (All controls will work with this game including the Gamecube controller.)

Alot has changed since the first Sonic the hedgehog game including not only new enemys but some pretty cool new tricks in the game including the new ability The Spin Dash. (which can be done pressing down on the D pad and holding the 2 button on the remote to charge up your spin) The Game has svereal stages each with 1, 2 , or 3 Acts. Clearing Act 1 by reaching the end of the stage with a sign at the end of it and the last Stage a fight with The mad scientist himself Dr. Robotnik. If Sonic has atleast one ring he will not take any damage no matter what, but when he has zero rings you will lose a life, Lose all your lives and its Game over. You can gain extra lives by collecting 100 Rings & 200 Rings (depending on the area you are in.) Also earning 50,000 points you can gain an extra life. If you end a stage and earn over 10,000 points you will also gain an extra continue. including extra helping items you have Ring boxes containing 10 rings a barrier box that lets you take one extra hit without losing any rings, the Invincibility Box making you Invincible for a short time, and the Dash Box to make you Dash even faster for a short time.

Star Post and Special Stages

In the middle of a level there are things called Star Posts. When passing through one of these posts it saves your exact position if you die you will return to where that post is in any stage that you are previously on. If you have 50 Rings and you come across a Star post you will see it glow with shiny red stars around in jump into them to access the Special Stage if you lose in the Special Stage you will not be able to go back through the same Post, you will have to regather 50 Rings again to access it in another world. In the Special Stage you are asked to collect a certain amount of rings after 3 sets of collecting Rings a Chaos Emerald will appear watch out for Bombs in the Special Stage when hit by a bomb you take damage and also lose a portion of your Rings so be careful.

The Verdict

For being as old as Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is it holds up very well with now a days games. even after being over 15 years old its hard to imagine that a game like Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was made back in 1992 when games were just starting to get better and better. All & All Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is one of the best Sonic titles in my honest opinion and should be on every persons console atleast one day. If you have never played a Sonic title start with Sonic 1 but do not even think about passing up this gem.

Wii-kly Review Gives This title a 9/10.
