    Sonic Origins is an essential collection not only for any franchise fan with current or last-gen gaming hardware but also for anybody who appreciates tight gameplay with a banger soundtrack. Sonic is the ultimate "Animal With an Attitude" mascot still having major games released to this day, and while the franchise has had a tarnished reputation due to sub-par releases lately, it remains plucky and pushes forward, never losing sight of its roots.

    Sonic Origins is yet another collection of classic Sonic games, but it's the best ever.

    Sonic Origins works magic with Anniversary Mode, allowing you to play four classic Sonic games in widescreen. However, the speed bumps, ranging from features moved to DLC and a lack of great content, bring the fun to a crawl.

    Sonic's beloved, 2D adventures return with a fresh coat of HD paint. However, this otherwise enjoyable collection of Genesis-era games is marred by a few technical issues.

    Sonic Origins is a raw deal, providing little content with questionable edits. The widescreen support, drop dash, and Mission Mode are welcome additions, but they all come at a (steep) price.

    Sonic is the hero of my childhood! I grew up with the 2D platformers and my Mega Drive with games is now well protected in a glass cabinet in the living room. Accordingly, I approached Sonic Origins with hope. Sega would have had the chance to interest younger players and offer old fans a little added value. But they missed it cleanly. For new players, 40 euros for four old games will be too much. At the same time, the collection offers almost nothing new for fans. Sure, the scans of the old manuals and developer sketches are nice, but they are nothing more than some fluff on top. The versions of the games still play fantastically, but they are only warmed up and nothing here is original from the Mega Drive. They normally work good on PC, but there are player reports on steam of a few technical issues. This is simply unworthy of these classics of gaming history.

    Sonic Origins is a great collection of great games of the 90' now rebuilded with the retroengine and it looks smooth, there also tones of extras in the game like the Anniversary mode, museum, boos rush and more

    I am disappointed.

    The developers brought so much nice stuff into this game like the gallery, mirror mode, and missions. But what made me so sad are the graphics. Why is it looking so poorly? I expected the pixel art to be crisp, but it isn't, and it's ugly.
    It's not worth 40$ at all, but because of the graphics, I won't rebuy this even for a lower price.

    What is happening with my favorite franchise?

    If you're a brainless Sonic fan - you will buy it. Another try to make money on Classic Sonic games, what has no sense.

    Have been Much Better Collections in the past. This is a Horrible Cash Grab that has locked Content behind a pay wall from a Collection ofHave been Much Better Collections in the past. This is a Horrible Cash Grab that has locked Content behind a pay wall from a Collection of only four 16Bit Sonic Games from the Genesis. Took the versions of the games Created by developer Christian Whitehead and didn't credit him but that maybe for the best. They took his work, removed features, made them buggy, and just destroyed them completely. If you can get older Sonic or Sega Game Collections you'd get much better and more for your buck. Also Sega removed these games from being sold separately on digitally storefronts to force you to have to buy this. Sonic Origins i really bad and Scummy. Sega is a horrible company and so is modern Sonic Team. How do you screw up a collection of Sega Genesis games so badly.Bedides being a Glitch and Bug Filled Mess you also can't play with loves in widescreen mode and the classic mode that claims to be the original games are not.
