    Advance 2 being written off as "hold right to win" does the game a massive disservice. Whilst you can get through almost all of Leaf Forest with that mentality and make significant progress in the other levels by doing just that, the game is constantly pushing you to do more than that. You're always being shown extra paths and item boxes that you miss if that's how it okay the game. Making the right split second decisions, slowing form to platform effectively and knowing how to use tricks and jumps to keep your speed high are all crucial to getting the most out of the game. Crying that the levels are all laid out like this "\" is missing the point terribly. The levels do include a lot of downwards slopes but that's only used to facilitate moving you forwards, and the physics work wonderfully.
    I ain't gonna defend the method of accessing special stages though. Fuck that shit. These levels are not designed are any kind of exploration.

    Hidden Palace in Sonic 2 mobile is such a good level. Really crap boss fight, but the level itself is so fun and full of original ideas. I was really pleased to see that even it got a bit of representation in Mania, as the Jellygnite Badnik made for this level reappears in Mania's Hydrocity. Such a nice detail.
    The fact that SEGA have slept on this lovely bit of content for so long bugs the hell out of me. The mobile ports of S1, S2 and SCD are brilliant. But SEGA never uses them, and actively trashed them all when they were updated to the SEGA Forever brand.

    I always roll my eyes whenever people try to shout that nobody likes the Zeti and spout hot takes about it being some mystery of SEGA bringing them back.
    It's a tired unfunny joke at best, and downright annoying at mid tier. At its worst, it's just absolutely grating behavior.

    I know this comes down to personal taste, but for me what makes a bad Sonic Zone isn't necessarily hard layouts, water or weird gimmicks on their own, but in what ways the zone can be tackled on repeat playthroughs. Everyone's first time through Labyrinth is going to suck, but if you stick to it and learn the level eventually you can carve a path to get through without having to put up with it (both acts 1 and 3 have shortcuts that bypass most of the levels).
      Then there are zones like Wacky Workbench or Oil Ocean where no matter how much time you put into them you always have to deal with their crap. You will never be able to avoid getting bounced to the moon or dealing with a zone with so many paths through the blend together and you can never tell where the heck you're going.
       Oil Ocean followed up with Metropolis ( a half and half case, one can get a good groove going through the layout but the badniks, well you know how they are) are one of two reasons Sonic 2 is my least favorite of the original quartet. In comparison once you take the time to learn them Labyrinth and Carnival Night become non issues, and while Wacky Workbench is indeed worse then both the Sonic 2 zones the other six zones make up for it in my book. The other reason I like Sonic 2 the least are the Special Stages. They may look cool but between the slippery control needing either super reflexes or spot on memory I find them the weakest of the classic Special Stages.

    The disparities in Sonic character writing between regions is the funniest thing to me. 
    A character that's not overly emotional in Japan suddenly becomes very emotional when localized over here. 
    I think it has something to do with the fact that American audiences find the unemotional and formal writing from Japan to be "boring", so they gotta "spice it up"
     
    I dunno, but it's really weird.
