SONIC AND "TAILS" TEAM UP
Sonic's back and better than ever. He's a blur in blue! With his new Super Spin Dash. And a new, fabulous friend, "Tails" the Fox. You won't believe it 'til you see it. And when you play it, you won't stop.
Defy gravity in hair-raising loop-de-loops. Grab Power Sneakers and race like lightning through the mazes. Dash in a dizzying whirl across corkscrew speedway. Bounce like a pinball through the bumpers and springs of the amazing Zones. All at break-neck speed!
Sonic's attitude is can-do. The mad scientist Dr. Robotnik is planning a world takeover. Sonic gets tough in the fight to save his friends and squash Robotnik for good!
• Sonic and "Tails" race for the goal in an incredible 2 Player Competition.
• Grab the Ring and find the 7 Chaos Emeralds to end Robotnik's quest to conquer the world.
This game is timeless. I have distinct memories of playing the special stages in co-op at a friend's house with fainter memories of Chemical Zone at the mall, but now I have the immense pleasure of playing the game again finally on my own Genesis this time around. The presentation is flawless from the classic "Sega" vocal intro upon turning on the Genesis, the dominating screen-filling presence of the duo on the start screen, the cutting-edge stage start transitions, -- p e r f e c t. That's not even getting into the pleasure of the mechanics of the game with running through high and low ground pathways, the charging of the spindash, the jump attacking an enemy right before running into them, the relief of finding an air bubble underwater, the whirling around in loops and tubes -- it doesn't matter how many decades seem to pass; I'll always be enamored with this game.
So what about you? Oh, and where were you on Sonic 2sday?
