The Sonic The Hedgehog 2 game manual reads:Robotnik Returns!
All was peaceful and quiet on South Island after Sonic The Hedgehog crushed the plans of the diabolical Dr. Ivo Robotnik for the first time. Far too quiet, in fact, for a hyper young hedgehog who craves action. So Sonic left South Island in search of other adventures.
When he returned, Sonic found no sign of his friends anywhere. Confused,
he went back to his digs to think and found a note waiting for him. It was
from Miles (or "Tails" as he is called), a two tailed fox who is one of
Sonic's closest friends.
Robotnik is back and he's captured all the animals on the islands! He is
holding me in a place called the crystal egg. In order to free me you have to find and bring the six chaos emeralds.
Robotnik made me write this. He says he's waiting for you and he's created
six really nasty robots in order to 'get rid of you once and for all.' I
don't know what he has planned, but Sonic, please be careful!
There was no time to waste! The letter fluttered to the floor as Sonic
dashed off to find the Chaos Emeralds and save his friends.
Once again, help Sonic to save his woodland friends from the evil Dr. Robotnik. This game went on to sell just as well as, or better than, its predecessor. Many Sega Genesis consoles came with it. Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is a great game. If you like Sonic games, you'll love this one.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 had all the cool aspects from Sonic 1, but with some awesome additions. One of the coolest was the ability to hold down one of the buttons to spin out so you can get a boost up to full speed without the need for room to get a running start. Another big improvement was the ability to play with a friend. The half-pipe bonus levels on Sonic The Hedgehog 2 added to the cool factor as well.
