The above video is an ad for a fanmade ROMhack of Sonic 2 that changes it to resemble the newer games made by Dimps.
As someone who’s not that excited for Sonic 4 and played the shit out of all the Sonic Advance games, I can’t help but agree with the points the hack makes. Sonic Advance was good but playing SA2 was like holding right to win. At a certain point you may as well be watching a youtube video of someone playing the game. Except for awfully designed deathtraps everywhere, Sonic Advance 2 provides no challenge and therefore no sense of accomplishment. 3 was even worse and I haven’t had a chance to play Sonic Rush on the DS yet. From what we’ve seen, Sonic 4 doesn’t look like it’ll have these flaws but I could be wrong.
