Very good challenging game although there are cheap moments. Also if sonic and knuckles was on iPhone I would love that
Best game ever on iPhone and Android I have sonic mania but this is cool 5/5
Best game on iPhone and Android I have sonic mania but this is cool
I don’t think it’s even possible to successfully port console games to mobile device 3/5
I just don’t think it’s possible. Touchscreens are nothing like actual, physical controls. The controls of this app are frustratingly bad, but I don’t think that it’s the App Developer’s fault... I just think touchscreens weren’t designed for the nuanced touch that playing a console video game requires. I’ve had this problem with all sorts of other iPhone and Android games, even games that aren’t ports. And I use a DS emulator on my iPhone (I sideloaded the program I use) and I run into the same problems with its “joystick” too. Touchscreen joysticks and control pads will never even come CLOSE to the real thing. The way your thumb drifts off the “joystick” if you’re not careful is really frustrating, because your character will just stop moving, and the movement of the character you’re playing as is all haywire half the time. It makes the game much more difficult than it needs to be. I play as Tails, and he glides all over the place in air form; Nearly impossible to control! I’m not sure if his airborne form/mode/whatever is that screwed up in the original game because I’ve never played the game on its original, intended console before, BUT in this port, it’s screwed up. Like I said, idk if it was already like that, but it’s hella aggravating. I don’t mean to sound so judgmental ‘cause I’m sure the app dev did their best, but unfortunately I’m going to have to give 3 stars anyway. You tried.
SEGA, make Sonic 3 PLEASE!! 5/5
By A man...
I downloaded this game a while ago, thanks SEGA for letting it be free. I kept going into the App Store just to find Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and knuckles. I love Sonic, but they need to have ALL of the classic Sonic games.
I already waited 2 months and still, no Sonic the Hedgehog 3!
Mods in sonic 2 will no like this don't have it
Great game, but after less than an hour playing the game, the next "add" is a completely black screen. I wait but nothing happens. I have to restart the app. Now it happens every time I press play game. I deleted the app and got it back but the black screen add is still there, please help!
Thanks, Sega. 5/5
Last year I wrote an angry review about the new update that ruined the game. Well, I’m happy to say that Sega was able to fix this problem and make sonic 2 great again(LOL). But seriously, I am very happy that they fixed the jumping problem and now the game plays like it used to: tight and responsive. Thanks, Sega.
MORE CLASSIC SONIC 5/5
Where the poop is sonic 3 and knuckles the fan favorite plz make one
Great game!..... with game bugs... 4/5
The game was so great getting to play as knuckles and all that but after I finished emerald hill act 1 the screen turned grey..... And now every time I try and play it just goes back to the grey screen...
Really Cool! But... 4/5
It really can really be useful if it’s three players because you have Sonic,Tails,and Knuckles(excuse the meme).Also I have a question. I looked through the version history and it said you can play together however Bluetooth is required.But how do you do it.Please respond to this if you have time!!!
This would be the optimal way to play the game...BUT 3/5
No controller support? Seriously? Sonic 2 is a platformer and platformers demand precision you just can’t get out of a clunky on screen touch controller. Sure...there’s plenty of ways to tweak it but as it stands...you’re better off using an emulator or playing this on Sonics ultimate genesis collection. Ads are fine. This is a free to play, so that comes with the territory. But, for the love of god...put controller support in.
amazing but there’s something that you should know 5/5
By Cole Owen Coplin
Sega u disgraceful trash-game developers. I can’t believe that u ripped off the super Saiyan form from dragonball. This is the evidence: seven chaos emeralds. Seven Dragon balls. Super Saiyan sounds pretty close to super sonic. There’s also the ever so important abilities of flight, being able to withstand extreme attacks, being able to breathe in and survive falls from space, and having golden hair. Super Saiyan was first released in a monger in 1991. You’re super sonic form was released as a playable form in Sonic the hedgehog two which was released in 1992. I’m surprised that no one has sued you for this yet.
Black screen. You gotta help. 4/5
By What if you go over 700 mph?
Hello! I’ma need help. You see, once I select START GAME, I get a black screen. I’ma need major bug fixes. Ok? Thanks.
Bad glitch. Cant play 4/5
I was on mystic cave zone as tails and I was dying a lot but the fourth time I died, the game would crash every time I would try loading my saves. I don’t know if other people seen this glitch but it’s definitely not fun since I can’t play that’s why I’m doing 4 stars
A great port of one of my all time favorite games. 5/5
Truly fantastic and pure perfection with the port to mobile. I'm very happy SEGA with this series of games of my childhood that you are returning to me. I've recently got the ability to comment again after a technical failure and now I can post the reviews I've been meaning to post a long time ago. :)
I need help 5/5
By Jason Trotman
Hi I’m Jason and I need help because every time I hit play game the screen goes gray and before that I cannot beat chemical plant zone 2 oh and did I say that I am a huge fan of sonic and my favorite character is Shadow so you should put Shadow the hedgehog and I mean the actual game so I would like the help bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look, I LOVE the sonic series. But there’s a huge issue I have with this. Ads appear at the WORST TIMES. I wrote this review about 3 minutes into playing, just because an Ad popped up right as I resumed the game. It doesn’t help that: 1. People PAYED for this game.
2. I own 3 copies as it is. [IOS, Wii VC, and Sonic Classics on the DS] You know what the last 2 had in common? NO ADS.
3. The main reason I got this was so I could play it on the go and have it be less glitchy than the DS version.
4. It has to be BOUGHT on PC,
And 5. The original cost was 4.99. The cost to make the game play like the original is just 99 cents. That isn’t quite fair.
Five and One can’t be fixed, obviously. Two and Three are just complaints, but four is a issue with a solution.
Just remove the ads.
They fixed the jumping in the game but we’re still missing S3K. Also it would be amazing if these definitive versions of the game were made available for console and PC users. But this game itself is great and the updates all make it better!
Black ad screen glitch 5/5
I liked SEGA’s sonic games but every time when I try to play my saved file an ad is different the ad needs to be there but it shows a Black screen WHAT THE HECK I liked the game ever since I was 6 I got the Sonic classic collection game for the DS But I got An an Nintendo 2DS to go with it But now a black screen in the updated version please find the bug so I can enjoy the games you make SEGA But what is Sega forverver
Why am I still getting ads? 1/5
I payed for it and get and ad right when I start it . What’s the point of paying for no ads and getting them
Worth it 5/5
This game is the best of the three that have been ported.If you don't know, sonic 1,2, and cd have been ported so far.Out of the three, this one is the best.I wish sonic 3 would come that ones my favorite.
Error report 1/5
Your new software update left me with a non working bluetooth control.
Pretty sure its the software not the hardware.
Amazing game, but one question: where is Sonic 3 & Knuckles? 5/5
By I wish to remain anonymous
I love this game, the controls are great, there is an amazing story to tell, the widescreen effect enhances the game. I didn’t grow up playing the original game, but I have played the original and this version of Sega’s most popular game is definitely the way it was meant to be played. The other remasters like Sonic cd and Sonic 1 are also the best possible ways that anyone should play these games. “Taxman” and “Stealth” outdid themselves with this game, adding boss attack mode, Hidden Palace Zone, and Proto Palace Zone, just makes something great even better. I wish that they were able to add all the other zones that were scrapped, like wood, dust hill, genocide city (add-on update Sega?).
Where is Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles? It was arguably the best game in the original series, and introduced Knuckles along with the Super Emeralds!!!! You are missing out on a HUGE opportunity Sega, look at how well Sonic Mania did! Fans want more GOOD 2D Sonic games (sorry sonic 4 fans). So many, including myself, absolutely loved these remasters of the old games, so why not remaster the best of the bunch and sell it for a bigger price than the first two went for? It would be idiotic not to (sorry). Yes, I know there are issues in the game, like Michael Jackson’s music, or how Hyper Sonic May have caused seizures, but those are simple workarounds! Sega, price it for like $3.99 if you want to, or like a dollar higher, PEOPLE WILL STILL BUY THE REMASTER. Everybody that wants the remaster likely knows that “Taxman” and “Stealth” are already up to the challenge of making S3&K Remastered! Please, LISTEN TO YOU FANS. SOMETIMES THEY MAKE BETTER THINGS THAN YOU SEGA (Sonic Mania)!!!!!!
EDIT: Thank You Sega for fixing the bug! 5/5
Thank you so much for fixing the bug Sega, now I can finally play this Sonic game!
Excellent, but a few suggestions 5/5
By Don 38
Sega Forever is one of my favorite things you have done, Sega. But, will Sonic 3 (& Knuckles) be added to the store?
Please get rid of the black screen bug 5/5
It is not a bad game but get rid of the black screen bug
Weird glitch 4/5
By sega and nintendo lover
I love this game.But,although the game is amazing from view,There’s a glitch that doesn’t let me play.can you please fix it please and thank you,sega team.
The games free now and keep crashing because not playing 4/5
The games name has changed a little bit now with classic in the end of the game and it is so amazing I have played it a lot on my iPad because of the ads. Sometimes the game crashes because the ad doesn’t play on this game(sonic 2 classic) and it is still a good game cause sometimes I do get the and I can skip the ad by swiping down and it’s a really good game
Really good game. 5/5
Game play is good but when an ad appears there’s no option to click out of it. Also I can’t do multi player mode. Please fix!
Edit: The ads no always have a button to click out now. (I mean I don’t know that for sure I pretty much only watched a few ads after the first review because I found out how to get ad free because I spent money on it) and I found out I wasn’t connected to Game Center and when I did connect to Game Center I could play 2 player mode!
(Now please add sonic 3)
This game use to be good. Ever since it became free it has a ton load of ads. I don’t think it’s fair to those of us who paid for the game. Also it’s gameplay is a lot slower and glitched which makes the app crash. I wish I could get my money back because now it’s like I just threw it down a garbage disposal.
I'm so mad 1/5
By foxy 7256
I got 2 chaos emeralds so I die they did token them form me
Game breaking glitch! 4/5
By Robux Ian
This is a great game not gonna lie. I understand why they have to put ads, it’s a free game. But I have this very annoying issue where the game is going to give you an ad but the screen goes completely black and the only way to escape is restarting the app and that is not ok with me. It makes me not want to play this game because of this very annoying glitch that happens every time I finish a zone. Please fix this. I would really appreciate it.
Common sega! 5/5
Make sonic 4 ep 1 and 2 Free!!!!!!
My age is freaking 9
Where is it? 5/5
Ok, I love this game the ads don’t bother me that much, but there’s only sonic 1,2,CD,4e1,4e2.where is sonic three? Now I sort of get why the don’t have 3 because of the special stages, just try SEGA all of us sonic fans need this, also I’d like to see sonic mania but that not coming that’s understandable
Die from enemies 4/5
By Linkzelda2007 is my username
The game is really great. Besides Metropolis zone where you die from enemies in the places where you have no room!! Everything else is great.
I can’t get in again :/ 3/5
I had a lot of fun playing this game. I love sonic 2 and now I can play it where ever I go. But then the game kept freezing (when I tapped on the start game button the screen would go black and I couldn’t play.) I got it to work once but everything was in slow motion. Plz help!
Best mobile game 5/5
By John Williams (Mr. Endie)
Of course a game that isn’t originally mobile would be the best mobile game.
Why require an internet connection? 1/5
Well, I mean the game itself is as great as the original. But they crippled this version by requiring an internet connection at all times. Yes, even if you purchase the ad-free version. So if you’re planning on playing a game on the subway or something similar to make your commute a little nicer, do not buy this. Anyway, one star because why on earth would a sega genesis game require an internet connection. Must be their way of encouraging the use of emulators.
Memes is in the game 5/5
By Kimberly Caswell
It’s SONIC 2 & KNUCKLES
Great Game on a Console, Not so Good on Mobile 3/5
Sonic 2 is a great game to play on my console, but I can’t even start it on here. Sonic 1 is perfectly fine on mobile, but for some reason, this game isn’t.
Whenever I press start, I get an “ad” that is just darkness. Nothing. So the game crashes and I can’t do a thing about it. This means that I can’t play this game at all. Please fix this bug!
Update plz 1/5
IOS 11 update. It will not work on it.
Ads in a game I’ve already paid for?! Screw you. 1/5
I bought this game years ago and now when I play it I’m being subjected to ads at launch and between every level, unless I pay even more. This is horse manure.
Ads and controls 3/5
By Screw you give us money!
I don’t have a problem with the jump button but instead the directional pad. I’ll hold down to curl into a ball or try to move left or right to make a jump and sonic would be unresponsive. And on top of that all these ads in my face don’t help either ಠ_ಠ everything was perfectly fine before this new update. Also another thing, WHY do I need an internet connection to play this game?
Doesn't work. 1/5
By Chi Golfer
When I try to press "Play Game" a black screen appears. That's it. I wish that I could rate it 0 Stars.
Weird glitch 5/5
Sometimes, when I play my game, it would act like it was going to give an ad however it would show a black screen. Please fix this.
WTH SEGA 2/5
Wouldn’t let me play the game
Black screen glitch 3/5
Unfortunately, when I boot up the game, and I tap on the start game icon, the screen of my device turns black, and I tried uninstalling and installing, it still will not function correctly. It would be a pleasure if you could get this patched. Thank you
Can’t open 3/5
I can’t open. All I get is a blank black page.
I am playing this, and the jump button is not responsive 75% of the time I tap it please help me
