'Sonic the Hedgehog 2' Plops Onto the iPod

Not to be confused with 'Sonic Advance 2'

Like 'Sonic 1', 'Sonic 2' is now available on the iPod for download. Unfortunately, early impressions sound as though it is the same emulation that was found on all other Genesis ports. That isn't to say the release is awful, it's just "alright". Minor to substantial framerate drops have been said to occur, and the controls can be tricky in later levels. The price, $5.99, is too steep when you consider an excellent full featured port on the XBOX costs a dollar less at $5.

Check out the gameplay video courtesy of TouchArcade:

Must I end every Genesis port article with "of course, you could always play a Nomad"?
