Quand on parle de Sonic premier du nom, c’est souvent sa monture MD que l’on parle mais la version 8-bit n’a rien à lui envier. Tout aussi plaisante à jouer, cette version Game Gear fait partie des meilleurs jeux de la console et il a fallu attendre Triple Trouble pour se voir égaler voire dépasser.

Per chi scrive, questo titolo è un lavoro sopraffino, un' opera d'arte videoludica realizzata con grande maestria. Avviso comunque il lettore che non per tutti è così, molte persone considerano Sonic the Hedgehog poco più che un buon gioco. Ad ogni modo la produzione presenta un livello grafico superiore a moltissimi altri videogiochi (per Game Gear) e un reparto melodico d'eccezione. Per non parlare poi del level design perfetto, della varietà generale e...

Sonic The Hedgehog consegue ser mais divertido que sua versão de 16 Bits, por incrível que pareça. Tudo no jogo é bastante simples e ao mesmo tempo bem detalhado. Os gráficos são decentes. O sprite de Sonic é bem simples e os inimigos também. Já o cenário é bastante caprichado, possuindo vários itens que caracterizam ainda mais a fase. Tudo está bem colorido e visível, o que causa um certo agrado. O Special Stage é muito legal neste quesito, pois mistura uma imensidade de cores num só local.

Sonic the Hedgehog ist ein absoluter Pflichtitel für den 8-Bit Sega Handheld. Persönlich gefällt mir die 8-Bit Version sogar noch ein Tick besser als die 16-Bit Version, worüber sich aber sicherlich streiten lässt. Das die Spiele allesamt aber Must-Have Titel sind, daß wird sicherlich niemand abstreiten wollen. Und so sollte man, sofern es sich noch nicht in der eigenen Sammlung befindet, mal die Augen nach günstigen Angeboten offen halten....

Les grands jeux sont éternels et cette version portable de Sonic the Hedgehog en est l'illustration parfaite. Le titre est une fidèle conversion de l'épisode sorti sur Master System, et on se retrouve donc avec un jeu techniquement superbe et doté d'une maniabilité au-dessus de tout soupçon. Sonic the Hedgehog reste encore aujourd'hui une référence absolue en matière de jeux de plates-formes, que tout joueur digne de ce nom se doit d'essayer.

Die Game-Gear-Variante der rasanten Igel-Hetzjagd entspricht fast 100prozentig dem Master-System-Vorbild. "Sonic" bleibt ein erstklassiges Jump'n'Run, das den Game Gear technisch ausreizt.

Sonic's Auftritt auf dem Game Gear bereichert Handheldfans um ein weiteres Topmodul für unterwegs. Detaillierte, farbenfrohe Grafik, neckischer Sound, viele Gags und ausreichend Abwechslung dürften Geschicklichkeitsfans jeder Altersstufe ansprechen.

The Video Game Critic
I don't like how Sonic on the Game Gear forces you to proceed at a very slow, deliberate pace. The bonus stages let you bounce on trampolines and bumpers to grab rings, but they aren't very thrilling. Slow-down often rears its ugly head, especially after you grab a power-up. Taking a hit only causes one ring to fly loose, but your total is reduced to zero anyway. No score is displayed when the game ends, and that's too bad. This portable Sonic is respectable, but if you've already experienced the stellar Genesis version, this will seem awfully tame.
