"The Best 2D Sonic Of Them All"

Wow, Sonic has been in plenty of games. From the very first Sonic the Hedgehog, to one of the best and most popular Sonic 2, to Sonic and Knuckles, to rejects such as Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic Drift for the GameGear, this proves Sega is not out of the 2D Fight yet! Read on to find out more farther down. Well, not that farther.

Story - 6/10
One of the only flaws. The Story is pretty much the same, Eggman is the main enemy and you must save the world and get the Chaos Emeralds before he does.

Graphics - 8/10
The coloring is great, but if you have a good light. If you have a good light, this game has great graphics. There is a new spin animation and it looks great. Plus, it has awesome looks. That's all that matters.

Sound - 10/10
Wow, for Gameboy Advance this is great! The sound is excelent! This is GBA Sound at it's best. Its greatly accurate, even in the X-Zone where you fight 2 bosses from the First 2 Sonic Games. The music is excactly the same from those and it sounds perfect. In other words, the sound is great!

Control/Gameplay - 6/10
Sonic is hard to play on a GBA. There are only 3 Main Buttons, A/B/R which are used. The Start Button is of course to pause it, doy. A and B are easy to use too after practice. It may take a while, but when you do, its great.

Difficulty - 7/10
This game is not as easy as it sounds. Traps show up very inexpectly. The enemies aren't very hard, but the main problem is when you go too fast you can't stop to avoid a trap, most of it involving falling to your doom *Egg Rocket for I.E*.

Overall - 9/10
This game is the best 2D Sonic Game up to date, I smell Sonic Advance 2 all over this game. The 2P mode, the Tiny Chao Garden, which BTW you can link the GameCube for rare Chao Colors, plenty of replay value by finishing the game with 4 Characters, Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles 'Tails' Prowler, Knuckles the Echidna, and Amy the Hedgehog *Who's Amy?* Its great! This is a must buy if you own the Gameboy Advance. Ok, this is CI out, good bye.
