The storyline of The Sonic the Hedgehog 2
STH2 is the first Sonic game that doesn’t follow the standard formula of being an endless runner. It is a sidescrolling platformer of the classic kind wherein players must guide Sonic through various levels and collect treasure chests that contain items or rings.
STH2 follows Sonic’s quest to find and rescue his girlfriend, Tails, from Dr. Robotnik’s clutches by traveling through various Ocean Zone zones to stop him from taking over their home city and the world, Mobius. In addition to these, players must also collect seven Chaos Emeralds to defeat Dr. Robotnik once and for all.
One of the reasons why Sega decided to make a sequel of STH2 was because they wanted to develop an adventure game that would feature second-gen titles. The original STH game had several gameplay mechanics problems,, such as the poor camera control and the sluggish nature of Sonic’s movements that led Sega to create a sequel for their most successful character.
The Box Office Prediction for Lightyear Falls Short of Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s Performance
Since the days of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Sega Genesis, we’ve been waiting for another game to come and knock us off our feet. Sure, we had some good ones that followed, but never a game came close to being as good as Sonic 2. That… is until now.
Lightyear of Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is Sonic The Hedgehog on PC, but this time around, it’s an action platformer, not an adventure platformer. It’s a game that blends 2D Sonic the Hedgehog with the 2D sidescrolling brawler genre.
However, it focuses more on action and jumping than exploration or puzzle-solving. The story takes place after Sonic 4 recently concluded and right before its sequel comes out in Q3 09.
