Classic & timeless

mugaro | Dec. 23, 2013 | See all mugaro's reviews »

Sonic 1/2/3 for Genesis are gaming gems that have aged very well. The gameplay is still great, 20 years later. With the introduction of Tails, this brought multiplayer and a different character to play.

Each zone has great music and is varied enough to keep the gameplay interesting. The boss fights are fun and challenging, but not too hard or unfair.

The best thing they added here was the spindash attack, something missing in Sonic 1 that has become a mainstay in every Sonic game afterward. It's also worth saying that you can do zone select in multiplayer and race your friend on split screen, and it changes the music to the zones which is kind of cool. The emulator on steam runs really well and adds a quicksave feature so you don't have to beat these games in 1 sitting.

This game is definitely worth your money. Nostalgia factor or just a great game that happens to be 20+ years old, it's definitely a solid game.

Blast Processing

CoillyZ | Sept. 29, 2013 | See all CoillyZ's reviews »

Sega's giant marketing ploy included touting a feature called 'blast processing'. While the existence of it is debatable, this game made you think it was real. It is a fast paced platformer with tight controls and catchy music. The graphics were innovative for the time. No one had seen anything like it except in arcades. It was a big step up from Sonic 1. This is one of the best Sonic game to date.

co-op sonic game? I'm in!

Bynn | June 10, 2013 | See all Bynn's reviews »

Bringing new elements, such as the spin dash, the co-op mode, the super Sonic mode, and all that stuff made grow the franchise in a single blow, this game is by far one of the best Sonic games made.

Better than the original in every aspect

jazzelmejor | June 9, 2013 | See all jazzelmejor's reviews »

Sonic 2 is one of the best games in the sonic franchise. It has even more beatiful graphics than the original, and not only that, its the first game that introduces tails, your partner. Bosses are more difficult, you have minigames and an awesome soundtrack. You will not regret.
