I was hoping we wouldn't do this but, since shots are already fired... I hate Sonic 2's sprites. The change in the shape of his eye from Sonic 1 makes him look like a rageaholic. His hands are fucking tiny. And stylistically they come across as a bizarre halfway between 1 and 3. Mania gets a pass because of the fuller color palette, but even then the brand new sprites made for Mania are miles ahead of the modified ones from 2. Gimme 3 or even 1 any day.
