How to beat the game in under an hour.

This is my playthrough of Sonic 2. It's not my best run (I made tons of mistakes and even died once, which is actually good for you people who are gonna watch this...) but I still beat the game in under an hour. Included in this is beating Emerald Hill Zone Act 1 in under 35 seconds and also beating Chemical Plant Zone Act 1 in under 45 seconds.


I don't go for any Chaos Emeralds in my run. If you want those then refer to these two videos:



Watch. Learn. Enjoy.

Is it really doable to beat it in an hour? I'd like to get the full 200, but it seems kinda ridiculous.

Very beatable in under an hour, just run your first stages fast and it'll give you a great buffer. I just finished the regular game, did my 2 chaos emerald achievements first, then went back and got my conquering time and finish the game, and 2 fast time achievements. The 4 stage vs. achievement is easiest done by yourself with 2 controllers.

Still working on the Xbox Live Racer achievement. If anyone is trying to boost, feel free to message me and we'll knock it out.

I just got this achievement and I must say it's easier and harder than I expected. I thought I may struggle to get under an hour but I easily finished it in under 45 minutes. However, it was difficult/frustrating at times because I was trying to use a speen run video as a guide and the person who recorded it was far better than me.

Here are the videos that I used:
Part 1 -
Part 2 -
Part 3 -

This guy finished the game in 18:12 (according to his video) so if you aim for at least quicker than 3x his times on each level you should make it.

Personally, I aimed for 2x and managed it on every level except for Metropolis Act 3. He used little glitches in the game to get past certain parts more quickly and in that level I just couldn't seem to get the glitch to work. However, as long as you've had good times for the other levels you should be fine.

Also, take everybody else's advice of saving often. I must have been saving every 5-15 seconds in game time, just to make sure I was running through the level as quickly as I could while sticking as close as possible to the time of this guy who again, is far better than me. In fact, he's probably far better than anybody else ever. It's quite unreal

Just finished this one up, basically you just have to finish each level in under 3 minutes. Which for most is very easy, I ended up doing it in around 40-45 minutes, while messing up quite a lot. Save every time you get a hit on the final 2 bosses, as you will have no rings so you don't want to keep dying/restarting and adding more time.

Thanks for posting this, this is much more helpful than the regular speed runs posted in the guide (like 18 min one). Yours is more realistic and you go routes most people can handle. This will help let people feel more at ease while they play instead of reloading a save 20+ times trying to do it perfect like the video for 18 minutes. That video is not a guide, but more of a show-off video which is extremely hard to mimic. I stopped at Chem Plant 2, as at the start he seems to be able to have this door open (I have no clue how, I tried exactly what he was doing) and just by moving to the left, was able to spin down instead of straight through a different route. Again, I tried for maybe 45 minutes with no luck. So instead I just beat the level regular. Thanks for posting this video, it serves as a reminder to aim for maybe 45-50 minutes, not 18 which is quite difficult for anyone to follow.

I had the same trouble, but as I was convinced that I wouldn't be able to beat the game unless I was very close to his time I kept on trying. I tried doing the level without that shortcut and it took ages.

I think it just had something to do with how fast he got there. Like, I think it's in 7 second on the game clock or something that he reaches that door, and when he pushes against it he can get through. I was making it there usually around 3/4 seconds after him and it never opened. Eventually I did it in the same time and the door opened saving me loads of time on that level. Obviously if you got the achievement without that though it was unnecessary

Damn. I beat Sonic 1 in under an hour without using any guides so I thought it'd be the same for Sonic 2. I was wrong. Now I have to beat the game all over again.

Thanks for this video. It helped me out 100x more than the 'speed video' posted in the guide. That guy was doing way too much for me to handle.

Wish they had the time appear on the save..
Does the time accumulate if you reload saves and keep retrying areas? Or is it an in-game time

Don't know how I didn't earn this on my first play through when I went for the Chaos emeralds.. Earning the emeralds burned time, but thought playin as Super Sonic would save me alot of time in other levels?
meh

well if you wanna get the achievement the easy way.........All you have to do is play a level and get a good time then press pause and save. Rinse and repeat for every level. To beat the game in under an hour you will have to beat every level in 3 minutes, but you should not exceed 3 minute times tell after oil ocean. I just got the achievement doing this. It is not the legit way, but it is the easy way for people who aren't crazy good and sonic. This way if you happen to die just load from the beginning of the level.

now that you can save anywhere you wish, this game is a breeze to beat in under an hour, with or without a guide. Its a little sad that i had to wait over a decade to beat this game on 360, but i never could get past that final robotnik boss. i guess having the internet could've helped

Jax is a sega beast!

Thanks a lot Jax (not just for helping me with the MP) but for posting this gem on here, I was on youtube, shifting through all the speed runs for this game. And as stated by other users on here, most of those aren't very practical for the conquering time achievement. Watching your videos were great. Although you'll probably never see this post. lol. I'll see you on TA.

You should've saved it after every stage just in case, then if you didn't get it you could've loaded the game and tried it again.

@DougTheJoker : Seems he played on Genesis, because the menu to choose "Sonic", "Tails" or both is not like that in the XBLA version.

Personally, I thought I would be getting in in my first playthrough (did it in 57 minutes) but it seems the game count the time spent in the special stages (the 57 minutes was special stages excluded).

Well, I'll just redo it later without doing the emeralds.

Edit : Redone, and got it. It's wasn't hard as I did the game twice in a row, so it was still fresh in my mind.
