The graphics were even nicer, the music even managed to be catchier than the previous game.
But in my eyes what m really made this game stand out was the 2 player mode
A)you had the main game where player 1 controlled Sonic and player got to help out as Tails the fox.
B)The other modes where you got to race against each other in split screen action or in a 3d running level.
Its hard to believe that this game was even faster than the first game and the amazing level design really made the game a joy to play it at break neck speeds.
The game still plays and looks as good as it did back then.
