Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis - Used
Thats No good!
I have no idea how this even got made. They are lots of great Sidescrolling platformers on the GBA but this is not one of them! This is a port of the first Sonic game on the Sega genesis or Sega Mega Drive depending on what conutry your from. I liked the first Sonic game but this is the worst port ever! The Camra is to far zoomed in for you to see ahead of you. The Sound is glichy. And the fram rate is low & unpreaictible. They are lot's better games out thare. They are ports of the old Sonic games on the DS & Wii VC as well as other collections if you want to play them don't buy this. If you are looking for a awesome Sonic game on the GBA try the Sonic Advance games the were great!
no wonder i traded in my original cartridge
sonic genesis is one of the worst excuses for a port sega has ever created you will not find a game as bad as this one.
WHY SEGA WHY!?!?!
This game is the worst sonic game i ever play even though I play it on a emulator and its the same thing with all that lag and why the music to marble zone's music sounds like a sad song but the good part is the graphics some music is decent and the anniversary mode with the spin dash and chose a level to start with but dont buy this game get it on the emulator any way if your want to be so angry but you know theres a still alot of ways to get sonic on the go.
THIS GAME IS THE WORST SONIC GAME, AND WORST PORT OF ALL TIME!! IF YOU THOUGHT SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2006 WAS BAD, WAIT TILL YOU PLAY THIS GAME.
Why did they have to screw up the best sonic game ever made? it has no sound! and it lags all the time and goes by so slow! Plus its way to close to sonic, so he looks huge and it makes it hard to see the things around you! The only reason this game doesn't get less then a 4 is because it was originally a great Sonic game. (When they don't screw with it).
This game is retarted...
Horrible Sounds, Horrible Gravity, Same Graphics, Good Spindash (Could have let you go faster, or at least removed the speed cap), Horrible Music. Total gameplay: NO!
One of the worst ports of all time.
No matter what you say, there is no hiding the fact that Sonic Genesis on the GBA is one of the worst ports of any game of all time. People think that this is 100% the exact same game as the original on the Genesis. NO IT IS NOT. Yes, the level designs are the same, but it isn't the same game since it isn't on the same system. There are too many problems with this game that people seem to overlook, it isn't the same game that was on the Genesis. It's a port of a game. A "port" of a game is when an old game is brought to a different console in an attempt to revive the classic games on new systems. This game failed MISERABLY, and did not come even remotely close to living up to the fan demand and just made us even angrier after Sonic 2006. Let's get into the nitty-gritty with what this games problems are. First off, the camera is zoomed in WAY too close to Sonic. This makes making specific jumps too difficult. Second, there is TOO MUCH SLOWDOWN. The game hauls like an old woman pulling a Boeing 747, it's slow beyond belief. Not only that, but the game is too glitchy. Sometimes, you will clip through the floor and fall to your death in a nonexistant bottomless pit, and other times, enemies will kill you without even touching you. Also, this game has some SERIOUS physics issues. You can jump up and hit bosses in a way that you couldn't before in the classic games. Honestly, this game has too many problems to list, and there is a reason I traded in my original cartridge to begin with. This game is a perfect example of "Genesis Does what NintenDON'T".
1, 1, 5, 2, WHAT!
Sonic the Hedgehog is a great game. All the reviewers seem to hate this game though. Now I do agree with the reviewers about the bad frame rate, and there is a bugginess in the game, but can't you look passed that. I mean come on, you're playing Sonic the Hedgehog in the palm of your hand. This game is great. Most of the songs are awesome! The level layout is great, and you can run at the speed of sound. The bosses are actully harder at the beginning then the end, but they are quite enjoyable. Although I hate that water level and there isn't much replay value. There are two endings depending if you get the six Chaos Emeralds or not. It was the 16-bit generations, and most great platformer such as Super Mario World had alternate paths you could have taken. Regardless this is a great game, and if you want it you can get it on X Box Arcade, the Wii Shop Chanle Sonic Mega Collection or Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collections.
This MADE the Genesis, and is back for the GBA!
I've read these reviews, and I can stand to see my blue friend being trashed. This game is great, fixing glitches that made the original a little annoying at times. The signature Spindash is also added as an optinal technique, which would make this easier for any kids wanting to play the classic game. I'm looking forward to Sonic Generations for 3DS, and the Classic Era is gonna make the game for me. And come on, sidescrolling action, a fat evil scientist, and one cool blue hedgehog? That is pure awesome coming from a true Sonic fan, only missing 3 main story games.
Way to knock all the fun out of the original.
The original Sonic for the Genesis stands as one of my favorite games ever. But, as promising as a portable Sonic sounds, this game sucks. The framerate is absolutely awful. I gave it a 6 in lasting appeal because of the bad taste it leaves in your mouth.
