Summary

Enter the hedgehog...

The Good

This is one of the games you would be hard pressed not to love. Everyone who has played this often can easily say they have a favorite level by far because they're all distinct and vibrant, each with music to match. Ask any sonic fan their favorite level and they could tell you in an instant. And can hum the theme from at least one level, as well!

Add to that, the gameplay is as addictive as it is simple.

It also has, quite possibly, THE most iconic character ever, if not, damn does Sonic come close.

The Bad

Hmmm... this could take forever to figure out.

The Bottom Line

The game of games of the era, if you have not played this, you're not a retro gamer, and unfortunate if you have not.
