This is classicA great port right here, redone masterfully in beautiful widescreen and helpful additions of future games like the spin dash. This is classic Sonic, and not his greatest outing however, Sonic's flexing of speed for years now is pretty insanely underused for a game entirely advertised for it. Only a few levels, Green Hill, Spring Yard, Star Light, actually use this aspect, the rest are slowed down but pretty terrible water sequences that slow you down terribly and have some annoying spike and enemy placement in Labyrinth Zone, and levels dragged out by being extremely slow and having a lot of waiting. Another issue is Sonic's placement in the dead center of the screen, when you actually speed up, you'll be greeted with some terrible enemy obstructing your playtime. Besides these annoyances, the game is good, the graphics are pretty and each area is memorable, although not as much as 2/3/CD/Knuckles, and the music, as with every game, is tons memorable and uses the great Genesis sound font. At least this port gives you saves as well, without them you'd have to start from the beginning unless you memorized a button combo, which also helps this otherwise just decent game. It's appreciable and worth it for the shallow price. Expand

Ignoring the lack of the spindash (considering it wasn't even in the series until a year later), the speed advertised wasn't there except in a few parts of Green Hill, spike glitches, and the frustrating Marble Zone is really hard to get through without a continue, especially with the touch controls. However, the level design is nice, the music is great, the gameplay is solid, and overall it's a great platformer. Not the best 2D Sonic game, but it's a great platformer. Expand
