Power Unlimited (Feb, 1994)
Sonic Chaos is in ieder geval de beste Sonic voor de Game Gear. Het heeft extreem goede graphics, belonende gameplay en natuurlijk de terugkeer van Tails. Misschien is het makkelijker dan voorgaande games in de serie, maar dat maakt de game er niet minder op.
Power Sonic (Jan 10, 2014)
Sonic Chaos mudou bastante seu estilo, comparado à Sonic 2. E mudou para melhor! Começando pelos gráficos, que estão maiores e com um maior detalhe. Mesmo assim, podemos encontrar alguns elementos do cenário que parecem não ter sido bem acabados também possuindo uma cor mais desbotada. Mesmo assim, tudo está muito mais colorido, sendo percebido logo na primeira fase.
Entertainment Weekly (Feb 11, 1994)
Also on the less-challenging side, but equally impressive technically, is Sonic Chaos ($44.99), for Sega's handheld Game Gear. Once again, the basic Sonic setup is in place: Playing as either Sonic or his pal Tails the Fox, players spin and bop their way across funky, robot-infested landscapes. The on-screen characters are huge, making this the perfect game to buy your 7- year-old for that next long car trip.
Sega Force (Jan, 1994)
Enda problemet är att Sonic Chaos är lite för lätt för rutinerade gamers. Ni som vill ha spel som ingen klarar får skaffa något annat, men är du ute efter en kul stund och gillar att utforska en ny Sonic-värld (Det finns mycket att hitta!) så är Sonic Chaos helt rätt.
GamePro (US) (Nov, 1993)
Sonic Chaos takes that winning Sonic formula, makes it new and interesting with a few variations, and comes up with yet another great Sonic cart. Although it's not as tough as some of the other Sonic adventures, it's still a cart that fans of the hogmeister are gonna wanna roll with.
Defunct Games (Apr 16, 2006)
Despite these few issues, this is a highly enjoyable portable experience, which is worth the cost in batteries just to see what Sonic's designers can do when they are thrown a curveball like the Game Gear.
Game Players (Nov, 1993)
Dr. Robotnik's after emeralds and Sonic's after rings. Some things never change. Tails is around in this one too, but only Sonic can reach the emerald-laden levels.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 08, 2003)
Unlike the first Sonic on the Game Gear, you can even continue your game after you've exhausted your lives. As good as Sonic Chaos is, it still shares a few flaws with the first game. The speed is very inconsistent, alternating between medium speed and near slow motion. And in later stages, it's too easy to fall off the bottom of the screen, resulting in instant death. But if you found the first Game Gear Sonic to be lacking, give this one a try. It's a major improvement.
This is the ideal way to play Sonic on the go. The graphics are crystal clear and the game plays like a 16-bit title. Definitely recommended.
Mega Fun (Nov, 1993)
Sonic Chaos führte zu zwei Phänomenen in der Redaktion. Echte Faszination bei einem Master System-Spiel und kurz darauf grenzenlose Empörung. Wann sah man schon mal eine ganze Gruppe Mega Fun-Redakteure ums Joypad geiern, wenn es um dieses Gerät ging? Bei jedem Level ein „Ja!“ oder „Oh!“ für die Geschwindigkeit, die Grafik oder die Animationen, doch nach einer Stunde Spielzeit eines ungeübten Sonic-Spielers kommt plötzlich und unerwartet der Abspann. Dabei waren noch 10 Continues übrig und das auch noch nach der ersten Partie. Tja, das war nicht die Probepackung. Soeben wurde das Spiel beendet und das Geschrei und Gezeter setzte ein. Meine Empfehlung: Für Kinder unter acht Jahren und allerblutigste Videospiel-Anfänger.
65 (Dec 20, 2011)
S'il n'était pas issu d'une franchise aussi célèbre, Sonic the Hedgehog Chaos serait un jeu de plates-formes assez convaincant. Mais, en raison de son manque de charisme et de sa durée de vie rachitique, il a du mal à soutenir la comparaison face à ses prédécesseurs. Il reste quand même un jeu de plates-formes correct, à la réalisation soignée, et qui respecte à la lettre l'univers Sonic. S'agissant de la mascotte de Sega, les possesseurs de Game Gear pouvaient toutefois s'attendre à un peu mieux.
Retro Game Reviews (Aug 30, 2017)
Sonic Chaos on the Sega Game Gear is incredibly lazy from a level design perspective, but at least it's a more polished version of the game. It certainly plays better too, and looking on the bright side, at least the all-too-brief stages fit better on a portable than they did on Sega's 8-bit home console.
