  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Classic joins SEGA Forever games collection

    (4 months ago)

    Apparently, SEGA has decided to replace the paid version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 with a free-to-play game, that's also part of the SEGA Forever games collection. Obviously, the free game comes with ads, so if you want to make it ad-free, you'll have to pay extra even if you've previously owned the paid version...

Overall, the game runs great! I like that the special stages have been dialed back a bit from the genesis version. And the save feature is so helpful! I did have a bit of a scare when I bought ad free. After my google play app updated, the game seemed to "forget" that I bought ad free and asked me to restore purchase, but restarting the app fixed this. This version is worth the purchase if you liked the old sonic 2. It keeps the old formula but adds its own style. I like it!

I love sonic the hedgehog 2, it was a part of my childhood. The game is fun and fast paced, however... The app version runs really slowly on my device [ZTE smartphone] for some reason. I would like this problem fixed please so I can have the old fast paced experience I had when I was a kid.

...ok why sega? this ain't the original sonic 2 android port that i downloaded about 3-4 year ago(the original price costed $3, lucky for me it was on a amazon freebe) and i mean i still have the original android port and it's great with the 60 FPS and updated graphics and slightly improved engine and this, this appeared on the google playstore, ads after every level and even in the menu? come on, also i can tell the diffents cuz the background and some menu textures are offset from the original(i did some side by side comparesions between apps and how i can tell the diffents between the 2 apps is one has a gold outline while the original doesn't) i mean heck if your going to lowwer the price... lowwer not make it appear free and make ppl pay to remove ads... no odfencve but thats just dumb...

It's great, but it's all in slow motion. I'm sure this can be fixed with a simple update. Edit: Hmmm, I wonder what that update was for exactly. The game is still running slow. (How ironic) Edit 2: I can't believe how long it's taking to fix this problem.

Ok first before I get into the real review, why are you asking me if this is sad?? But anyway sometimes when I'm playing single player it will say "2p vs has been disconnected" and bring me to the main screen. Other than that it's fine and good.

I really like it can you make Sonic 3 on the phone too? Also for those who say this is a bad game . . . You are just not smart at all. Classic Sonic games are the best but the controls could be better for classic Sonic games

I LOVE Sonic 2. I remember playing it in 2017. It ran great. But as of the 13th of March 2018, it's all in slow motion. This bugs me to the point of me not wanting to play the game. Please, Sega, fix this soon (then I'll rate it higher).

Lags really badly unlike the first sonic. Should not be an issue whatsoever with my phone. Something wrong with the app. UPDATE: Reinstalled after Jan 30 update. Still broken, horribly slow and completely unplayable. Whatever you did with Sonic 1, why dont you try that? That game actually works and I bought it. Please repair it and Ill happily purchase this one as well..

Ok, so this is a good port of the game. The only thing is, that there are bugs with the controls. If you jump, hold jump, and make a "joystick" input, then the directional input will match your jump input, and vice versa. Doesn't sound like much, but it is super annoying when you are fighting the final boss or doing platforming. Another thing is that the frame rate is inconsistent, sometimes running between 30-60 fps, and sometimes 10. ALSO, tone down the pause ads, its a bit much.
Dark 4
Its the christian whitehead port of sonic 2, it is perfect although, could you tone down the ads a bit? Im here to play sonic to, not the homescapes demo for the millionth time, but Im cool, even the requiered online isnt to bad, just chill with the ads a little, like once per gameover or end of act 2? ok? good.
