    If you're a fan of Sonic games and you haven't finished Sonic CD you owe it to yourself to check out this title - scratch that... if you're a fan of platformers, this remastered version is something you need to own.

    All told, Sonic CD was a masterpiece long before it appeared on the App Store. This wonderful mobile version only helps solidify its standing as one of the greatest video games of all time.

    Sonic CD is a terrific port of a great, under-appreciated Sonic game.

    Featuring your favorite characters, retro visuals, and lightning fast speeds, Sonic CD is a particularly well-developed port that easily exceeds our expectations.

    A faultless conversion of what is arguably Sonic's most accomplished adventure, Sonic CD on the iPhone combines amazing presentation with a surprising degree of depth and playability. This peerless 2D platform escapade is a must for any self-respecting iPhone gamer.

    Sonic CD was a great game in 1993. Today we can't put two hands in front of our eyes and ignore its flaws. Sega does a great job in mantaining the same old running atmosphere, but are we sure that it can still give to a 2011 user what he wants?

    Sonic CD for iOS is an incredible game. It plays and feels just like the original from 1993, but better. This version was ported by ChristianSonic CD for iOS is an incredible game. It plays and feels just like the original from 1993, but better. This version was ported by Christian Whitehead ("The Taxman"), a long time Sonic fan and game development guru. It retains the classic graphics, with improved effects. The gameplay and controls are also improved, borrowing Sonic 2's speed and spindash. (The original controls are still available as an option for those who prefer them.) The game includes both the US and Japan soundtracks, and has Tails as an unlockable playable character. The achievements are not many, but are a cool addition to the game nonetheless. So are the online Game Center leaderboards. The virtual gamepad is implemented very nicely, and doesn't get in the way even if you're used to playing the game with a joystick. The game can be beaten fairly quickly if you're willing to see only the bad ending, but to get the complete experience, a lot of exploration is involved. I would easily pay $10 for this game, and for the current price, you'd have to be crazy not to get it. Running smoothly at 60FPS at all times, Sonic CD for iOS sets a very high standard for iOS ports. Expand

    Sonic CD was an awesome game on Sega CD, and this is by far the best port of this game. for the first time you can choose either the AmericanSonic CD was an awesome game on Sega CD, and this is by far the best port of this game. for the first time you can choose either the American or the Japanese soundtrack, and the themes are perfectly "looped". Visually is also better, with real wide-screen ratio and pixel filters. Game-play has improved as well, you can choose either the Sonic CD Spin Dash or the more popular Mega Drive Spin Dash, Tails is a playable character with his own move-set and the whole game runs at 60 fps, which are very helpful on the Special Stages.

    Sonic CD is probably the best game of the franchise and thus far this is the best version of this masterpiece. It only costs 2$, so I recommend this game for every single Sonic fan, old and new, and for every fan of platform game.

    i love sonic the hedgehog so much, and Sonic CD for the Sega Genesis is one of, if not the best, sonic games of all time. On IOS the touchi love sonic the hedgehog so much, and Sonic CD for the Sega Genesis is one of, if not the best, sonic games of all time. On IOS the touch screen is sometimes unresponsive, but that's definitely not enough for me to not call this game a masterpiece. Expand

    This is an excellent platformer for the ios. At times it can be extremely fustrating because they put spikes everywhere. Also, I'm not sure ifThis is an excellent platformer for the ios. At times it can be extremely fustrating because they put spikes everywhere. Also, I'm not sure if this is true for all, but the aspect ration was wrong for my version of the iphone. Not a major complaint, but a bit annoying at times. Other than that, a very fun game while you wait on the train. Expand
