Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a downloadable version of Sega Mega Drive game Sonic the Hedgehog 2 released for the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade in late 2007 as part of the "Sega Vintage Collection" series. It has extra features that the Sonic the Hedgehog (Xbox Live Arcade) port didn't have, like online multiplayer (over Xbox Live or Local Play) and voice messaging.

The game is run on an Mega Drive emulator and allows for control by either analog stick or D-pad. Since the game uses a custom title screen it is not possible to enter any cheat codes via the Sound Test or select the in-game options selection. A custom Options screen is available, which allows the player to toggle a graphics smoothing filter, character selection (via screen size adjustment, and custom button mapping. A custom Game Save option is also included. Leaderboards for Overall High Scores over Xbox Live Arcade and Achievements are supported. Although Sonic and Tails are available as a playable combination, a second player cannot control Tails in the single player mode.

This game costs 400 Microsoft points.
