one word:AWESOME!
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is obviously the best Sonic title yet. And that's saying something, considering his latest adventures have been nails in his coffin. Which means they sucked. But this game rocks! It introduced the revolution of the 16-bit era. Yet sometimes, it felt challenging. But this game makes up for it with incredible replay. You'll play this for hours to get everything. The only game with Sonic in it that was great was probably Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I can't imagine a better way to relive classic side scrolling action besides Super Mario Bros. So sit back, relax and enjoy the 16-bit era's domination. Sonic lives on forever!
