My review of Sonic the Hedgegog

Updated on March 17, 2015

Ahh, Sonic the Hedgehog. The fond memories I have of this game is vast. So when I discovered it available for the 3DS Eshop, I downloaded it immediately. But, something was wrong. This is not the game I remember from my youth. Oh, silly me. I was thinking of Sonic 2. That was the game included with my Genesis, not this. Heck, I didn't even own this game back in the day. So, here is my review of Sonic the Hedgehog. This game is fun, but ruined by my experience of the 2nd game. This game is platform heavy and, for a Sonic game, rather slow paced. Where is the speed Sonic is known for? It is not found here. Alas, this is still a good game, and the game that launched the Sonic franchise. The soundtrack is memorable and kind of addicting, without it being lyrical herpes. Lyrical herpes is a song you don't like that gets stuck in your head, goes away, and comes back. Like Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball. No, this soundtrack is short and sweet, with nice tunes you find yourself head bobbing to in the game. The gameplay is nice, if a bit slow by Sonic standards. The first world is fast and vibrant, but after that, it slows down for some precision platforming. The level design is nice, though that damn water world is painful. The boss fights are fun and engaging, though not quite epic. Visually, this is a beautiful 16-bit game. Most of the levels are colourful and vibrant. Saying that, some aren't as vibrant as others, and it's those specific levels, like Marble Hill zone, that I find less engaging. This game is available on the Nintendo Eshop, as well as multiple greatest hits compilations. My advice? Get it on the Ultimate Sonic Collection for the PS3/360. You get this game plus all the other Sonic Genesis games, as well as a multitude of other great(and not so great) Sega classics. It's around twenty bucks, and well worth the price.
