The Video Game Critic
You can play through the game as Sonic or Tails, and Knuckles appears as a villain. So what's the catch? Well, the game does suffer from its share of slowdown, but it doesn't adversely affect the gameplay. The difficulty is much lower than previous Sonics for the Game Gear, to the point where it's sometimes hard to lose a life! That's okay, because this game is a joy to play, delivering the fast action Sonic fans crave with minimal frustration. It's a shame Triple Trouble was released so late in the system's life cycle, because this game is the real deal.

Außerordentlich beeindruckend! Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble steht bei mir fast auf gleicher Höhe mit dem legendären ersten 8-Bit Teil der Sonic Reihe und punktet durch bewährte Tugenden. Zwar werden keine weltbewegenden Neuerungen geboten (sieht man von Tails als endlich spielbaren Charakter mal ab), das Gesamtpaket ist in sich aber einfach stimmig. Wenn ihr die Gelegenheit habt - zugreifen!

Après Chaos qui s’est avéré assez moyen malgré de bonnes idées, Sonic Triple Trouble permet de rehausser le niveau en se faisant aisément une place parmi les meilleurs jeux de la Game Gear. Le titre d’Aspect prouve par ailleurs que développeur tiers et Sonic ne sont pas aussi incompatibles et fait partie des meilleurs Sonics sortis.

Again, what you've come to expect from Sonic, but with a few new additions such as snowboards and submarines. This game is good when compared to previous Sonic titles.

Nach dem eher etwas drögen "Sonic Chaos" ist der Igel in alter frische zurück: Wahlweise mit Sonic oder Tails geht es durch sechs abwechslungsreiche Welten voller Fallen und Überraschungen. Rasante Igel-Action und tolle Grafiken lassen viel Freude aufkommen, so wollen wir unseren Sonic immer sehen. Zumindest für alle eingefleischten Sonic-Fans ist dieses ein absolutes Muß!

If you're an avid Sonic fan, these flaws won't prevent you from thoroughly enjoying this game. And even if you're getting tired of the blue guy, this cart's worth a quick rental - there's enough for a fun-filled weekend.

Vom Spielprinzip her hat sich gegenüber den drei Vorgängern nichts verändert. Es ist und bleibt eben ein typisches Sonic wie es leibt und lebt.

Sonic Triple Trouble is just what you'd expect from any of the other Sonic GG games. It's colorful, fast and very close to the Genesis games. It's a bit choppy. The biggest downfall of STT is that it doesn't really do anything new with Sonic. It's more of the same. However, it plays well for the small screen and in itself, is quite fun. Having played them all, I just wasn't impressed. Hopefully something new will be done.
