Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Recommended Videos

Of course Sonic is here, no list of Genesis games, or Sega in general, is complete without the blue blur himself. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is one of the very best games in the long-running franchise, and helped cement Sonic’s spot as a gaming icon.

The colorful graphics and sense of speed hold up well on the Genesis Mini, the game’s competitive mode makes it a viable option for two players.

Sonic 2 had a number of improvements and changes over the first game, not the least of which is the brand new playable character Tails. This was also the game that introduced Sonic’s spin dash move, where he stays stationary and spins up.

In pretty much every way possible, Sonic 2 was bigger and better than the first game, from new zones like the Metropolis Zone to the host of gameplay improvements.

You can’t possibly buy the Sega Genesis Mini and not play Sonic 2.
