Summary

A True Classic: The start of the legend!

The Good

The game, unlike many games today, is challenging and fun. The makers of the game didn't know how popular it would become. It contains sudden surprises, good controls and that iconic soundtrack. The ultimate classic that gave our good friend Mario a run for his money.

The Bad

Although the game contained everything a game would want (minus the great graphics of 3rd Generation consoles) the game has some snags. Sometimes it can be a little too tough for younger gamers (I should know, it took me seven years to complete) and sometimes the sound effects can get on your nerves a little.

The Bottom Line

Sonic the Hedgehog, the birth of a legend, the beginning of a new era in gaming. My advice is get that old Megadrive out of your loft/attic, dust off the webs and get back into the good old times when gaming was so much fun.
