För att sammanfatta Àr Sonic CD lite av en gömd guldgruva som de allra flesta sannolikt missat. Att det sÀljs för sÄ lite som det gör (knappt 14 kronor till Android och 400 Microsoft-poÀng till Xbox Live Arcade) gör det till rena kapet för alla som vill fÄ uppleva en av Sonics finaste stunder och samtidigt fÄ sig en redig historielektion pÄ köpet. För alla som redan spelat Sonic CD Àr det vÀrt att köpa ÀndÄ bara för extramaterialet. Det Àr kort sagt precis just sÄ bra.

Sin lugar dudas, Sonic CD supone todo un regalo que recibimos con los brazos abiertos. No sólo se trata de uno de los mejores Sonic que se han hecho nunca, sino que también es una gran conversión con un buen trabajo de adaptación, algo que por desgracia no resulta tan habitual de ver hoy en día. Su precio también ayuda a que no podamos hacer otra cosa mås que recomendar su adquisición, ya que por menos de cinco euros se convierte en una opción muy tentadora y económica.

Basically, I love this game. And I love it in a way that both fans and Sonic CD newcomers should be able to love it too. Fans will love the care and attention given to the conversion of one of the all-time great Sonic games. Newbies will share the same journey I just had, discovering a gem of a platformer that's been buried in obscurity for far too long. It's still relevant and only the ultra-hardcore level design is likely to put gamers off. If it does, go back to Sonic 2 instead - it's far simpler.

If this is all that's changed, then why all the excitement? I'll tell you why: Sonic CD is a great game. I paid $300 for an attachment and $50 for the game back in the early '90s to see Sonic at his best. Now all you need is $5 and a few minutes for a file download. Sega could have easily charged twice as much for this much-loved classic.

Sonic CD is a labor of love, and for fans, it is a chance to finally play this often talked-about game. If you enjoy classic Sonic games, this is a must own. The amount of polish that went into it is impressive, especially for the low price tag. Sega may have soiled Sonic’s name in previous years, but after Generations and now this, I think he is back on the right track to glory.

GameSpot (8.5 out of 10) (85%)

Despite a few minor issues, Sonic CD is among the more impressive retro ports seen on modern platforms. Not only is the game faithful to the original, but it's also just plain better in many ways. And at a mere 400 Microsoft points ($5 US), it's a tremendous value to boot. If you remember Sonic CD fondly, there's no better way to enjoy one of the most treasured games in the series. And if you missed out on this one entirely before now, this is a superlative way to experience a beloved classic for the very first time.

For those of you eagerly awaiting Sonic 4: Episode II, listen up. SEGA is promoting Sonic CD as the direct prequel to Sonic 4. So not only is this a super fun Sonic game for XBLA, it potentially offers tips about SEGA’s upcoming projects. That’s two reasons to get it, I shouldn’t have to give you a third.

Sonic CD's overall package is bare-bones, with the option for the original Japanese music and a time trial mode being the only notable additions to the game, but with the tiny price point (only 400 MS points) it's an easy thing to forgive. I would have really liked to see something new, like maybe a low-end overhaul of the graphics as an option, but having the different layers there are fine (though minor). Thankfully, though, all of the animations are here—including that kickass "Sonic Boom" opening number—and the game is even smoother than I remember on my SCD. Need a speedrun through the past? This doesn't just fit the bill—it flies through it like a dine-and-dash.

Whoops, I’ve run on a bit too long for a digital port of an old game. Suffice it to say, this is one of the top-quality Sonic games, even if it’s a bit weirder and a bit patchier. The lack of slickness ends up being a positive — this is a game that’ll stick in your memory, and encourage you to keep coming back to it. Like Sonic? You’ll like this one.

Complaints aside, I've really enjoyed the recent time I've spent with Sonic CD. The game begins to shine after you get accustomed to traveling through time and exploring each unique level. This downloadable rerelease is an easy choice for fans of the series or anyone interested in some pure platforming goodness.

Si proposer la rĂ©Ă©dition de vieux jeux sur Xbox Live Arcade prĂ©sente un intĂ©rĂȘt avant tout financier pour les Ă©diteurs, c'est Ă©galement l'occasion de faire dĂ©couvrir quelques pĂ©pites qui n'ont pu connaĂźtre Ă  l'Ă©poque de leur sortie le succĂšs qu'elles auraient pourtant mĂ©ritĂ©. Sonic CD fait partie de ces titres, victime du pari ratĂ© de Sega avec le Mega-CD. L'erreur est aujourd'hui rĂ©parĂ©e avec une sortie sur Xbox 360 qui ravira les nombreux fans nostalgiques de la mascotte supersonique qui pourront profiter de sa variĂ©tĂ©, de son contenu Ă©toffĂ©, de son level-design diabolique et surtout de sa bande son de qualitĂ©.

However, there is no doubt that this is the definitive version of a little-known, much-loved title. Sega's humility in collaborating with Whitehead, and artistry in bringing the game's strengths to the fore, is a striking achievement in 2011. For that reason, for the first time in a long time Sega, deserves its richest asset - and for the first time in a long time, those fans deserve Sega.

Cette rĂ©Ă©dition de Sonic CD est une aubaine pour tous les amateurs de la sĂ©rie qui Ă©taient, jusque-lĂ , passĂ©s Ă  cĂŽtĂ© de ce trĂšs bon Ă©pisode. Toujours aussi plaisante en dĂ©pit des quelques dĂ©fauts imputables au jeu d'origine, l'expĂ©rience profite de la multitude d'options de paramĂ©trage offertes, permettant notamment d'opter pour la bande-son japonaise ou sa version US. L'inclusion de Tails en tant que personnage jouable est l'argument ultime en faveur de l'acquisition de ce portage. ProposĂ© Ă  un tarif honnĂȘte, il vous permettra de dĂ©couvrir ou de redĂ©couvrir un jeu de plates-formes qui n'a rien perdu de son charme.

Leuke extraatjes, zoals de optie om te wisselen naar de Japanse soundtrack en de mogelijkheid om het personage Tails vrij te spelen, maken van deze game een absolute must!
