    If you missed the old days when Sega MegaDrive was the ruling console you now have the chance to understand why the blue hedgehog was so popular. [Jan 2012]

    Brief, reasonably entertaining and mercifully cheap. [Feb 2012, p.103]

    Sonic Cd may not look pretty, game wise though it is a solid fun romp in the retro gaming realm.

The new engine allows the game to run smoothly (even in the special stages) - it supports wide screen, and has a vast array of other options (old/new spindash, JP/US soundtrack, screen filters) that allow you to tune the game to your liking. The achievements encourage multiple play-throughs, and unlockables will keep you busy a while after that.

    Over all, an EXCELLENT remake - I can only hope sega will continue the current upward trend - Here's hoping they'll give the Genesis trilogy the same treatment!

Visually has a wide-screen 16:9 ratio and HD pixel filters. For the first time you can choose either the American or the Japanese soundtrack, and every theme is perfectly looped. Game-play has improved as well, you can choose between the Sonic CD or the Mega Drive Spin Dash, Tails is playable and the whole game runs at 60 fps, which are helpful on the Special Stages.

    This is the best version of the best Sonic game, and it's really cheap, so I recommend this game to every Sonic fan and all gamers of platforming games.
