I actually prefer the Master System version over the Mega Drive. The second game however, is infuriating
You think Sonic 2's difficult on the Master System? Try it on the Game Gear, no allowances made for the smaller screen size and I'm pretty sure the jump timing is a little off as well. Absolutely impossible, even the first boss is properly nails.

The Master System/Game Gear version is a fine fine game in its own right. The sequel on the Game Gear is teeth grindingly hard!

That was only the second level and it was the furthest I ever got through the game without save states.

The worst part of Sonic 2 on the Master System isn't that glider though... Wait until you get to the total guess work that is Green Hills Zone Act 2 & 3 :twisted:

Green Hills still had an amazing song in the background, it was basically an 8-bit remix of You Can Do Anything from CD :D

That's very true, It defintely had the best level theme in the whole game.
Bridge Zone in Sonic 1 is (in part) Tail's Theme in Sonic Adventure :mrgreen:

Yeah. Bridge Zone had a really nice song, sounded very merry, though I've never played Sonic Adventure (though might be buying it soon).

I believe it actually came first in terms of release although CD was developed first it all depends on when the song was done. I did laugh when I heard it on Neo Green Hill though!

StH2 SMS/GG was released first but I feel like the song is suited with lyrics and Masafumi Ogata composed parts of StH2 SMS/GG as well as SCD. (I prefer Naofumi Hataya's songs on SCD though especially Cosmic Eternity)

Seconded on that. Sonic CD remains one of the best soundtracks (well the Japan/EU one anyway, US is alright but pales next to other sonic games)

On another note why in the hell is Sonic Chaos not on the 3DS? They have Triple trouble on it (which was Chaos 2) so it's very weird why they pulled it off the store.

Considering how many GG games were released on 3DS, my guess is they gave up due to lower sales. Similar thing happened to Master System games on the original Wii VC, after about 15-ish releases, nothing.

Mind you, Nintendo has gone on and off with VC releases on 3DS. Released GB/GBC/NES games, stopped for years, brought Pokemon R/B/Y and SNES games over, eventually stopped those, now Gold and Silver are coming next month.

Doubt they'll try revive 3DS VC a 3rd time (GBA games anyone?) but who knows. Maybe they'll temp those new New 2DS XL owners with new stuff.....

They were like that on the Wii and WiiU too, they'd go months without VC titles, release several, then stop again.

Sometimes yeah, but even the Wii U VC is currently getting Turbografx games every now and then. You'd think they'd just put them on Switch instead like the Neo Geo games, but I guess they're waiting on Nintendo's VC Switch plans....

Problem was they DID release it. VERY briefly. Then they removed it and didn't replace it
