    The sonic curse continues. Hey SEGA, the last good sonic game I played was on the Genesis! The controls, feel and gameplay were all much better then. I'm not a hater, but I just can't figure out why it's so hard to do justice to this IP and create a decent game. Even a rehash of a once-loved game doesn't live up to the original Sonic CD. Unless you are a die-hard, give this one a pass.

    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]

    It's pretty much the perfect Sonic! [March 2012, p.93]

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