USA VC Update: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Master System)

It's the third week in a row with just one VC game! This time, it's a big-name title, but to be honest, even fans of the franchise might be disappointed.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Master System is not at all like the Genesis version. Yes, it's a platformer as well, but the levels, bosses and almost everything else is completely different. This game also introduces vehicles, such as hanggliders and minecarts. Like the first Sonic on the Master System, it's a good game, but nowhere near as good as its console counterpart.

That's it! On WiiWare, you can grab two new games this week - Bruiser & Scratch and Hockey Allstar Shootout.
