Great a definite improvement from the original

This game improved from the first in so many ways. It added tails and the spin dash and by far the biggest improvement is how the levels were faster paced. The story while not being as good as idk SA2 went more in the direction of colours or rather COLORS generations and the original where the story wasn’t bad but rather too simple. The music is great as well especially chemical plant. But once you get to metropolis zone the game starts to get bad. It has such unfair level design. But my biggest problem were the special stages. Now these special stages would be good if it wasn’t for TAILS . You have to time you jumps early so he won’t hit the bombs and lose your rings and you need them to get the chaos emeralds and not to mention that you need 50 rings and a checkpoint to get into 1. Besides that great game.

Such a good game!!!!

I mean the original version was really good but now that you can play as tails and knuckles the game has evolved a lot I really enjoy this game the people who say that the game is bad are lying keep up the good work!!!!!!!

Also forget what I said about not knowing how to get the special stages I have finally found out how so if you don’t know how then here is what you have to do:

First you need to have at least 50 rings then you have to go through a checkpoint. If you successfully go through the check point with 50 rings, a ring of red sparkly stuff should appear above the checkpoint. If you jump up when the ring stops growing, it will transport you to a special stage. I just got a chaos emerald in the emerald hill zone and I’m finding it a bit tricky to get past the next stage. Your games are amazing SEGA and also a big thank you to Christian Whitehead. See you in the next Sonic game!!!!!!

Super sonic breaks the game 😂

If you get super sonic you can fly through the game without a care in the world besides falling into holes in hill top zone, super sonic is so broken that if you ported sonic 3 and knuckles hyper sonic would destroy the game, but back on topic super sonic is a god, well done if you have all the chaos emeralds and myself included it’s so fun going through the stages as super sonic except for metropolis zone where you can get squashed way to easily with super sonic and hill top zone is also annoying, but super sonic makes all the hard bosses *eyeballs chemical plant zone act 2’s boss and metropolis zone act 3’s boss* super easy (pun intended) but its annoying in metropolis zone because if you go to fast you can squash yourself but besides that really funny and broken😂😂😂 (also you can get super sonic before chemical plant zone)

Btw we all want sonic 3 and knuckles SEGA, make it happen by 2019
