Sonic the Hedgehog heads off to Never Lake where the Little Planet appears once a year. There he comes across an admirer, the tarot card-reading Amy Rose, who follows him onto the planet. Unfortunately, Dr. Robotnik has turned the island into his own personal fortress and seeks the Time Stones, which will put the past, present, and future of the Little Planet into his wicked hands. He also has his robot lackey Metal Sonic kidnap Amy. It's up to Sonic to save Little Planet and Amy before it's too late. Written by cupcakes

One of best Sonic games
15 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember getting Sonic CD for my Computer when I was kid and enjoying it, the only problem was that my PC kept crashing while I was playing the game so I couldn't fully play the game. I still kept the game has a memento, years later I acquired Sonic Gems Collection for the Playstation 2 which contained Sonic CD. ( As well as Sonic the Fighters, Sonic R, a bunch of Game gear games, Vectorman and Vectorman 2.) Playing Sonic CD now I still think it's one of the best games in the Sonic series, it's got great music, a cool opening anime scene and ending, great levels, good boss fights and it introduces one of the most popular villains in the Sonic Francise: Metallix (Metal Sonic), Sonic CD also introduces another ally in Sonic's crew, Amy Rose.

The game play is easy to pick up especially for those that's played the other 2D Sonic games, a nice little addition to this Sonic game is the time travel feature since in every level there are poles that either say Past or Future. Running into one will allow you to warp through time but to do that you need to run really fast without stopping. Like the other Sonic games this one also has a bonus stage, in Sonic CD you need to destroy a certain amount of UFO's to collect the prize. In other Sonic games after completing a bonus stage you get Chaos Emerleds while in this one it's Time Stones.

Sonic CD is a great game that should be played. Check this out. 10/10
