    Sega have succeeded in adding just enough tweaks and extras to convert the unconvinced.

    This is easily the most underrated Sonic game of all time and would be Sonics crowning achievement if it wasn't for Sonic 2 in my opinion. Either way this is unmissable for fans of Sonic and great 2D platformers. Full Review »

    This version of Sonic CD made by Christian Whitehead is simple the best one. It has 60 frames per second, 16:9 wide-screen, HD pixel filters, there are two types of spin-dash, you can choose the soundtrack you like more, every theme is perfectly looped . The special stages has been improved as well, it supports leader-boards and trophies and it's only 5$. It feels retro, nostalgic, but not outdated I recommend it to every gamer who likes platform games. Full Review »

    One of the best platformer games ever. If you thought this game was a masterpiece before, this port will blow your mind. It has so many nice additions, such as Tails, HD filters, and the JP soundtrack is also available. If you like Sonic, this is a must buy. Full Review »
