Super Speed! Sonic's back and better than ever in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. He's a blur in blue! A blaze of action! 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, you won't stop. Super Play! 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! Super Power! 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!
