Sonic The Hedgehog 2: Game Gear Edition

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a side-scrolling platform video game developed by Aspect and released by Sega for their Sega Master System and Game Gear formats. The Master System version was released in Europe on October 25, 1992, and in Brazil around the same time. The Game Gear version was released in Europe on October 29, 1992, in North America on November 17, 1992 and in Japan on November 21, 1992. Being released before the 16-bit version for the Mega Drive (Genesis), the 8-bit editions of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 represent the debut of character Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic the Hedgehog's best friend who became a recurring character in the series.

The music for the intro sequence is also different, the Game Gear version using the Scrambled Egg music for the scene showing Robotnik escaping with the captive Tails, with the tune that was played in this prelude in the Master System version instead employed on the title screen. The hand-held edition also features dark blue (instead of green) water in the second Act of the Aqua Lake Zone, and omits the game's second "High Speed" item box, which may be found in the Master System version of this stage.

The personality that made the hedgehog a hit is present in spades in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with fun gameplay ideas, beautiful graphics, a memorable soundtrack, and glimpses of speed-platforming delight. Unfortunately, the experience is somewhat marred by sporadically sadistic level design that bends over backwards to put the breaks on Sonic's joyride. There's still lots of fun between the death jingles, and its unique zones definitely make it worth playing for series fans, but if there's no nostalgia tying you to this particular cartridge, we recommend checking out the original Game Gear Sonic the Hedgehog before dashing into this one.

The levels feature big bosses that might be familiar from Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5, which was a nice touch. Many called it one of the best Game gear games of all time, as it felt and sounded similar to that of the NES title.

Midway is planning to release a pair of Mortal Kombat: Deception limited edition packs, featuring a copy of the game, a metal collector's card, and a DVD consisting of a history of the game and some character videos. The PS2 and Xbox will each have their own version, too - the PS2 Premium Pack will be adorned with a picture of the lovely Sub Zero, while the Xbox "Kollector's Edition" (sharp) will be available in four different covers featuring Baraka, Mileena, Raiden and Scorpion respectively. The limited edition packs will obviously cost slightly more, and have only been confirmed for the US at this point. Oh, and on a related note, you can find the newly launched MK: Deception website at... the location we just linked. 041b061a72
