  • Summary: The evil scientist Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik) has snatched the poor animals of South Island and and turned them into robots.

    Only one hero can defeat Dr. Eggman and rescue the animals from his vile clutches its the super-cool hedgehog with the blue spiky hair, Sonic!

    an instant classic that rivals Mario. I love his iconic looks and his edgy attitude, that's what makes sonic great. but what makes sonic more awesome is the speedy game play that you can run and jump up to ht the enemies. the creative level design never gets old. Super nintendo had the best 16 bit graphics of the fourth generation, but what the sega genesis had to offer, is the coloful art deisgin(for example: green hill zone shows the ground with checkerboard like textures.) The soundtrack is very catchy for this game. That is why these things made an instant classic Expand

    Ah, Sonic. Simply put, an anthromorphic blue hedgehog with super-speed abilities. So why not make a game revolving around this character? SEGA did and the rest is history. "Sonic the Hedgehog" is a PC port of the wildly favorable Genesis/Mega Drive classic video game that launched a thousand fanbois to take on a nameless fat, Italian plumber over at Nintendo. Admirers of fast-paced platformers will be in for a treat with this title. Sadly the game itself is rather short otherwise I probably would have rated much higher. Expand

    Sonic the Hedgehog is a pretty decent platformer which will challenge you a lot more than other platformers. With a decent visual setting, decent gameplay and an amazing soundtrack this game will drag you back in again for to replay its 21 levels that will make you think before you leap or if you are a daredevil to race around all the enemies and obstacles as a challenge.
