Sonic Classic Collection - Nintendo DS Review

 

Sonic Classic Collection features a good selection of 2D Sonic games. Unfortunately, this compilation is marred by poor presentation values and a lack of content.

I find it very interesting that Sega just doesn't know what to do with its mascot. On the one hand, the company keeps releasing repackaged versions of the characters early 2D exploits because those are the games that fans want. On the other hand, there...

Solid Sonic fun

Rereleased again ; Multiplayer taken out (not true ports)

So, is Sonic Classic Collection worth picking up? If you have a Nintendo DS and not one of the other previously released compilations. These are fun games, and it’s nice to see them out in front of gamers again, but something new really needs to happen.

Sonic Classic Collection Review [NDS]

 

Sonic the Hedgehog's early adventures are deeply engraved into the minds of the  majority of twenty-something gamers whose first experiences with a gaming platform was to jump and spin-dash through Marble or Star Light Zones. It's likely that at some...

Includes all early Sonic games including 'lock-on' ability with Knuckles ; Gameplay remains true to the originals and is mainly smooth ; Robust save system allows a game save for each title

Menus are basic and lack imagination ; Some games suffer from slowdown when hit by enemies ; Touch screen options are limited

Sonic Classic Collection offers all of the original Sonic games on a single cartridge in their original forms. Expect nothing more than this though as there are no extras worth mentioning besides a save system that fits the portable nature of the DS.

Fun classic game

 

Bought for my 8 year old son who lives the game. This is a classic that I remember playing when I was younger as well. Not as you as 8 but when the first games came out this was a favorite. We would actually fight over who was able to play first or...
