After the original Sonic the Hedgehog, the little blue blur of a creature decided to take a bit of a break. After all, foiling Dr. Robotnik in several different games on several different platforms is tricky business. However, a heroís work is never done. After his vacation, Sonic comes home to a rather depressing bit of correspondence from Tails.
According to the letter, Dr. Robtnik maybe had a bit more life in him than people thought. He has captured Tails and all of Sonicís other animal friends and is holding them in a place called the Crystal Egg. Once again, Dr. Robotnik has created an elaborate trap to attain the Chaos Emeralds, and Sonic is told that he must produce all six of them to free Tails et al.
If you are expecting this sequel to offer the same adventure that is available out of the same title on Genesis, think again. This is an entirely independent game with a different plot and different game play, starting first and foremost with the change of roles for Tails. Even the moves are different.
Still, this is a classic third person platform game and Sonic features the same characters with the same cute anime look, just partaking in a whole new type of adventure.
