Sonic The Hedgehog 2

It's great to see Sonic 2 finally, a game well worth downloading, now Sonic has a spin he can charge on the spot and his buddy Tails.

Ecco: The Tides of Time manages to improve on the excellent original game with 3D style levels and many cool new gameplay features.

Golden Axe II is more of the same unfortunately. It doesn't sound like such a bad thing but the sequel sort of loses something of the magic of the original and is a bit of a dull, uninspired game on the whole.

With all the Megadrive goodies it would be tempting to overlook the offering on the TurboGrafx this week which would be a shame. Dragon Spirit is another vertical scrolling shoot-em-up, it's quite unique and worth a look even if it is not quite as brilliant as the mighty Solider Blade.
