Product Details:

Sonic heads to the GBA in all his Genesis glory. The original Sonic The Hedgehog that broke the speed barrier wide open on the SEGA Genesis is now on the Game Boy Advance! The game has seven original gravity-defying stages that have been perfectly ported over to let players experience this classic on Game Boy Advance. Navigate through loop-de-loops of Green Hill Zone, zoom past waterfalls, and dash over molten lava at Sonic's trademark super speedy pace while collecting gold rings. In celebration of Sonic's 15th birthday, Sonic The Hedgehog Genesis includes a special anniversary mode, in which players will be able to use Sonic's Spin Dash ability to get them out of dangerous situations. Also, for the first time in the original Sonic The Hedgehog, players will be able to save their progress and high scores throughout the seven stages. Play the original that started it all!


* Anniversary Mode: In celebration of Sonic's 15th anniversary, players can now Spin Dash out of danger in the seven original gravity-defying stages.

* New Spin Dash Ability: Sonic's supersonic spinning maneuver adds a whole new level of excitement to the original stages.

* Authentic Experience: All seven of the classic stages have been perfectly ported over to let players experience the classic on Game Boy Advance.

* Unlock Songs from the Original Soundtrack: As players progress through the game they'll be rewarded with the sweet sounds of the original in-game music.

* New Save Feature: For the first time, players can now save their progress and high scores throughout the seven original stages.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well, no. This game is something else. So, in 2006 they are making a sonic game, and they decided to port this at the same time. The lag is HORRIBLE, and the screen is WAY too zoomed in. I know SEGA could've made a better game. Wait, no I don't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Honestly, it's not that bad of a game. I got Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis in summer of 2007 as a surprise, since then I've been playing it on and off. Honestly, I disagree with the popular opinion, this game is not that bad. I'll start with the good, this is the Sonic game I know and love, same levels, badniks, and concept. Graphics are colorful and it still has the same adventure of helping Sonic free cute little animals from Dr. Robotnik (or Dr. Eggman if you prefer). Controls are simple like the original as well. The bad, there is slow down on and off, the worst slow down that happens is during Labyrinth Zone and parts of Scrap Brain Zone. At times there are some glitches I ran into, and some slight graphical differences (example spring upside down). Despite the few problems, I still got enjoyment out of this game, just as much as I did playing any other version of Sonic. Would I recommend it? Yes and no. Yes because Sonic the Hedgehog is a great game. No because newer handheld versions have come along for the DS and 3DS since this release.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why?? 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).
