Review by SONIC_305
"The first game of Sonic where it all began!"
Decided to play this game looking back at all the Sonic games that I've ever played which still this game just brings back memories like a blast from the past. No matter how much I play it once in a while you will find this game fun if you never played a Sonic game before.
Story 10/10: Doesn't have much details for this story but hey this was a really old game back then. Meet a super cool hedgehog named Sonic the Hedgehog who's runs really fast. The story was mostly about Dr. Robotnik stole the Chaos Emeralds and has captured his animal friends. It's up to Sonic the Hedgehog to save the day and stop Dr. Robotnik.
Graphics 10/10: Really good graphics for an old game which I find it really impression with the sprites and most of the stages are really detailed with all these levels you'll find interesting. Very well detailed and backgrounds are great.
Gameplay 10/10: The Gameplay for this is just too awesome where you run super fast with Sonic but this is where things get difficulty. Every Zone you complete the games will get harder since if your those kind of people who like playing difficulty games but also its more like Super Mario where you jump on your opponents except your not using mushrooms and the Ring is your life gauge. Not only that but also the items in this game have are really useful as well which helps along the way trying to pass the stages. You need 50 rings to collect to enter a bonus stage where you can get the Chaos Emeralds and there are 6 in total (there's suppose to be seven as you play more Sonic games). This game is so fun it's really as great and enjoyable to play than any other Sega games that you will find.
Music and sound 10/10: Amazing music mostly enjoyable to listen to that you'd want a soundtrack for it. Most are catchy that the music is just too unforgettable that ITS JUST AMAZING!!!! The sounds are really good to hear like the ring sound, the jumping, and the spin dash also when you hit many things on the way!
Overall 10/10: Most enjoyable Sonic game to play for a classic and its just too astounding to play for old time gamers. Not only that its just perfect for people who have never played Sonic the Hedgehog before. I recommend playing the old games of Sonic the Hedgehog rather than the new ones that are coming out. This is what Sonic is about even though the new ones today are still good but not as good as this game where it will and always will remain one of the best and the original fun games to play. THIS IS A GAME YOU HAVE TO PLAY IF YOU WANT TO PLAY SONIC I RECOMMEND PLAYING THIS ONE FIRST AT LEAST LOOK FOR AN EMULATOR OF SEGA GENESIS OR SOMETHING THAT YOU'LL BE ABLE TO PLAY IT! C'MON THIS IS A GAME YOU WILL MOSTLY LIKELY HAVE FUN RATHER THAN CARING ABOUT THE STUPID GRAPHICS THAN THE FUN OF THE GAME FOR YOU HARDCORE GAMERS OUT THERE! NO MATTER WHAT THIS GAME IS JUST TOO AWESOME TO PLAY!
