Crazy Credits

Like the first game, Chaos Emeralds are hidden in the special zones, and if you retrieve them all, following the credits will be Robotnik standing angrily beside the words THE END. If you do not collect them all, following the credits will be Robotnik happily juggling the ones you didn't collect. See more »

Sonic's Back
3 June 2003 | by (Ammon, Idaho) – See all my reviews

I first got this game,when I was 8 and in 3rd grade when our family got the Sega system, that came with this game for the Christmas of 1994. I became obsessed with it, and got so good at it that I could beat the game in an hour and 20 mins. and didn't die until the Deat Egg Final Battle, and I've gotten 32 lives. The levels are better than in the original, with great action, more exciting, less obscure places. This game particularly along with the others, should have been made into a live action movie, and Sonic could be another guy in disguise. You can switch to 2-player and battle Sonic against tails, racing each other, and competing against each other trying to get the most rings. One thing that's annoying, and cheap is that you lose ALL your rings no matter how many you earned when you get hit by an enemy or a trap. There are 7 chaos Emeralds you get. To get them you need to get at least 50 rings, and go to a lamppost and go into the shiny, turning red light, then you're in a tube and get as many rings as they tell you and avoid bombs, which for me is hard after I get the third. If you get 100 rings or 50,000 points you get an extra life. You have to fight Dr. Robotnik on every level. There are 10 levels: Emerald Hill Zone, Chemical Plant, Aquatic Ruin, Casino Night areal treat because you can gamble for rings and possibly get 1,000 or more! Hill Top Zone, Mystic Cave, Oil Ocean, Metropolis Zone,which has 3 acts, Sky Chase only one act, and Wing Fortress Zone. There's also a final battle that takes all the skill and exploits to beat on the Death Egg Zone, where you have 0 Rings, and will die the first hit! Here you fight a giant Robot and a metal hedgehog in a formidable fortress in space.
