Sonic Classic Collection
Buy this game for the DS!!!
I bought this game about a month ago, and I was impressed when I first played it. The only thing that I hate is that Knuckles in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles are already in the list of Sonic games, you can't unlock it. It also has illustrations, which is one of the menu topics where you see the drawings of Sonic and his friends. Quality and graphics are the same, and the music is still the same as it was. There are a couple of glitches in the game, so that's another thing about the game that I hate. The point is, it's a great game, and you get to play it on the go for the first time. Thanks, sega, for bringing the classic Sonic games on the DS. I think this is the 5th game where they brought back the classic Sonic games, I'm not sure. I bet that they'll make another one like for the PSP.
Sonic the Hedgehog review
Hello and I'm writing a review for sonic classic collection. I've seen on other review sites that people have not rated this game very good and others have rated it very good. I wandered why so I got the game for my birthday, and I found it very good. It has the original games and the lock-on games. Later on that day, I went to gamestop to buy some games with my money and my dad pointed out the sonic collection game for the ps2 and gamecube, and he asked mewhy those 2 are cheaper than the one for the DS and the only reason I had was cause those ones were older and people won't have those systems. But even though they've repeated this type of game, this is the best, 'cause the controls are better, the sounds better, and (as far as I know) the pictures better also. So, I think the choice is obviouse, that this is one sonic game that you have to get.
Absolutely Love It!!! Well Done!
Very good game and i was suprised to find it in a gamestop still today seeing as though it is about 4 years old.This game is truly a hidden treasure to those a fan of the classic Sonic franchise. Includded are 7 games it advertises 5 but doesn't say anything about Sonic and knuckles being included on the packaging. Gameplay is smooth and doesn't miss a beat compared to thier originals,Colors and graphics also stay true and look very vibrant on the 3dsxl,sound is crystal clear and brings back many memories of my childhood.They even have art included from the original games in a section called "gallery".All in all this game is a hidden gem as it includes all the great Sonic classics in one package perfect for the casual or competitior gamer of today.I absolutely and highly recommend this game for anyone of any age to pick up, play, and enjoy many times over.I give this product 5 stars
Brings Back Memories
I grew up with Sonic. i have had history with Sonic the hedgehog! I'm a huge fan, of Sonic games. This game brings back memories because you can play the orginal Sonic the hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Knuckles in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 and Knuckles. I love this game, this game brings back memories of my childhood. The bad thing is this game isnt compatible with two players, the one thing they should've done is make this game wi-fi compatible so we can play all over the world. Otherwise, this game is a must for any Die Hard Sonic fan, :) Thank-you Sega for making this game possible, if it wasnt for you... We wouldnt have a great, wonderful game, especially on the DS. Now anyone any age could play Sonic the hedgehog 1,2,3 Sonic and Knuckles, Knuckles in Sonic 2, and SOnic 3 And Knuckles on the go! This is a must play game for anybody!
All three Sonic games on a handheld? Heck yes!
Having only owned this game for two days, I can already say that this game fails to disappoint me. It's exactly what you pay for: the three main Sonic games plus the two Knuckles add-ons from Genesis on the DS. I was thrilled when I learned that Sonic 3 and Knuckles was actually on here. At first I thought it would just be Knuckles in the Sonic 3 levels (like Sonic 2), but no. It was the legendary S3&K. I fell in love with it. The only problems I had with it were the sound, main menu, lack of some features, and the lack of Blue Sphere. I'll cover them one by one. The sound was okay. I mean it has a direct copy of the original music from the Genesis, which was awesome. However, it seems that two sounds cannot play at the same time. An example is Angel Island act 2, when you're getting bombed. It sounds weird. Then sometimes, one sound is played twice at the same time, meaning you get an increased gain in volume, or you get an echo effect. Once you get past this, you just learn to ignore it. The main menu could have been better as well. If you include a handful of illustrations, then why not make an awesome collection of them like Sonic Mega Collection? This doesn't kill the game for me, but it would have been nice. Also, what's with the drowning sound when you select your game? Is it the foreshadowing of impeding doom or what? The lack of the options menu in Sonic 2 was disappointing. Although I heard that you can access it by glitching, it would have been nice to include it. You can't enter anymore codes or just listen to the sound test. Is that too much to ask for? Similar problem with S3/&K. The competition mode was awesome. I know it would be tough to have two player (which would be EPIC), but why scrap it entirely? The racing game was actually pretty fun, and I missed it immediately. The last thing I have to pick at is the lack of Blue Sphere. If you include two out of the three possible Sonic games unlocked by Sonic and Knuckles, why not include all three? Having access to the literally millions of blue sphere stages would have made it perfect. Well, that's my review. For the price it is now, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play the original Sonic games on the road without lugging a Sega Nomad around. I hereby give the game a 9/10.
Classic Games FTW
Now they need to do Super Mario All-Stars and it'd be all set! Seriously I love Sonic since i was a kid in the 90s. Though it lacks the Blue Sphere game when you lock sonic 1 in S&K I love this collection.
sonic is a blast
sonic is a blast to play.any sonic fan will enjoy this game.if you have a ds then you need this .
old school sonic- on the go!
What seems like the original genesis games on the ds have some features removed. The 2 player mode has been removed from sonic 2, and the save option doesn't go to where the option was selected- you have to start over! Besides, why not include sonic spinball and sonic 3d blast. Plus, there are no unlockables (well, almost none) and the only lasting appeal is to play either game again. you would probably spend 100 hours or more to beat this game. If you don't have xbox live, virtual console, etc, then this is the game for you!
Back to square one... (Good thing actually)
Do you remember playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Genesis when you were 4/5/6 years old and loved the game? Remember always falling into the purple stuff in Chemical Plant Zone? Remember playing the start of the Sonic series and having to go somewhere and not being able to take the game with you? Thanks to SEGA that dream has been achieved... This game has accomplished very well. It brings back the start of the series (Sonic 1,2,3, and Sonic and Knuckles) and also with those... The lockon feature has been returned for those many Knuckles fans to play Sonic 2 & Knuckles... and even Sonic 3 & Knuckles has been brought back, not some dumbed down version of it, I mean the full, complete, legendary Sonic and Knuckles 3... Now there are some downsides to it... Classic Collection has been known to have some "technical hiccups", which by that I mean: In Sonic 2 when you lose your rings, sometimes it may slow down the framerate which surprises me with the power that the DS has, the other tech issue is in the Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles in the special stages everything moves all weirdly which causes the level to be harder to beat.. The one big thing I question is why'd they have to make the touch screen pause the game and completely ignore the Start Button to use for pausing the games? and also the drowning sound when you start up a game... Is it like foreshadowing something? And also one tiny issue with the sound in Sonic 3, when 2 separate sounds play at the same time (like a bomb and a flare) it may echo or something for like a second but anyone can ignore it... Those are the only errors I can say about the game... I can't say anything bad... I grew up playing Sonic games my whole life, my first ever video game was Sonic the Hedgehog 1 for the Geneses when I was 4... Well I hope you consider buying this game... Its a true refreshment to the classics and if you don't want it, get it for someone like a little brother or son, they'll get to see what the beginning was like....
Finally for the DS
Ah this brings back memories. The days of playing these games on the "Sega Genesis" or "Sega Gamegear" Never in a million years did I think I'd be playing Sonic on a Nintendo system. Now, the Virtual Console has these games, it's like playing Sonic on the NES. But with THIS I can feel like I am playing them on a hand-held system like I used to play on the "Sega Gamegear" and now feel like I'm playing on the "Gameboy" or what hand-held is now the Nintendo DS. I'm gonna go to Gamesop today, so I'm gonna go and PRE-ORDER this today
