Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Review: The Sega Sequel Takes This Franchise To The Next Level

Sonic 2 is a true blue sequel to believe in.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2

While there is a time gap between the two films, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 doesn’t spend any time getting right into the action.
At the same time, veteran writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller,
as well as series newcomer John Whittington, who manages to incorporate enough information from
the first film to keep franchise newbies on track with returning fans.
You don’t have to have seen Sonic the Hedgehog to enjoy the sequel, but it does add to the fun.
This second splash of excitement, if anything, manages to place itself as a crossroads between the past and the future.
Opportunities for the already in-development sequel and spin-off series find strong roots in the present voyage,
much as earlier events do in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Even more, the film doesn’t
go overboard with building up the future, instead of remembering why its viewers became committed in the first place.


Sonic the Hedgehog shows to be a strong baseline for lore and character development,

as well as a solid touchstone for expansion.

At the absolute least, good sequels must recall what happened previously.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 ticks that box wonderfully, with the blue blur (or rather “Blue Justice”) desiring to become an even bigger hero.
We learn so much more about Sonic’s background through revisiting the events
of the previous movie through the deadly route he’s speeding down in order to continue his narrative.
We see storylines like Tails’ entrance at the conclusion of Sonic 1 developed out,
much as the Bourne trilogy did with prior events and present developments.
Characters from Sonic the Hedgehog are further developed,
notably Maddie Wachowski (Tika Sumpter) and her sister Rachel Wachowski (Natasha Rothwell).
Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s narrative is significantly more fragmented than the prior films due to the separation of human action from animated animal antics.
The real fun begins when those strands begin to weave together,
leading to some action/comedy shenanigans with Maddie and Rachel joining together.
The whole human cast of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has its own set of moments that help to flesh out their personas.
After all, it is a sequel, and the typical goal is to make it larger and better – even if the former may get in the way of the latter.
This isn’t an issue this time because the developing backstory adds to the tale and the characters.
The addition of fan favorites like Idris Elba’s Knuckles,
who does a similar act to Chris Hemsworth’s first Thor performance,
fits seamlessly into the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise’s structure without looking forced.
But it would be remiss not to highlight that Colleen O’Shaughnessy,
a long-time fan of the Sonic franchise, brings Tails back to the big screen with style and love.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 continues the series’ noble values and character development.

It cannot be overstated that sequels may be frightening,

especially when they follow a hit like Sonic the Hedgehog, which arrived as a pleasant surprise.

It’s usually simple to detect if a nascent brand is cashing in on a fluke hit or is actually based on solid foundations.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is on the superior side of the equation, with more humorous pleasure,

brilliant pop-culture allusions, and easter eggs to make Sega youngsters smile from ear to ear.

That alone could have been enough to justify the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog 2,

but that’s not all the studio’s future franchise has to offer.

The noble values and necessity of friendship aren’t any less vital following the arrival of additional supporting characters and a greater goal, as Sonic and the individuals he surrounds himself with continue to mature.

Thoughts of expanding the cosmos are entertaining, putting that potential into action requires meticulous planning.

What was once thought to be just another in a long series of video game disappointments has grown into its own franchise.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 continues to set the standard for everyone interested in adopting digital delights,
and the end product only serves to tease the promise of a supersonic future.
Sonic the Hedgehog was only the beginning, and everyone who enjoyed the prior installment should get right into this new adventure.
