Trivia

At the time, everything about this game was revolutionary: the graphics, the sound, and (most importantly) the character. The idea was to make a game that would win over the Americans, with the hopes that this would guarantee success in Japan as well. While the game was indeed a runaway hit in most of the Western Hemisphere, it enjoyed only moderate success in the land of the rising sun, a trend which is present throughout Sonic's career.

The game that introduced us all to Sonic.
24 September 2001 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most famous video game characters in video game history. Well, the famous Hedgehog got his start in this classic game and has been amazing us ever since. As Sonic, you journey through many stages and fight off all kinds of robots in order to defeat archenemy, Dr. Robotnik. The levels get more challenging as the game progresses. Also, look for the bonus levels where you can collect the Chaos Emeralds. This game has been out for years and has been vastly outdated by the recent games, but this is still an awesome game. Thumbs up.
