    an instant classic that rivals Mario. I love his iconic looks and his edgy attitude, that's what makes sonic great. but what makes sonic more awesome is the speedy game play that you can run and jump up to ht the enemies. the creative level design never gets old.

The soundtrack is very catchy for this game. That is why these things made an instant classic Expand

    Ah, this is where it all began. Sonic the Hedgehog is a true classic in the gaming market. With a blue hedgehog who goes fast, collects rings, and saves animals. I just wonder who was high enough to make this idea become a full working game. However, this game has some flaws when going fast in some levels. For example, Marble Zone and the Labyrinth Zone both force Sonic to go slow,Ah, this is where it all began. Sonic the Hedgehog is a true classic in the gaming market.

Overall Sonic 1 is a true classic that could've used a tiny bit improvement on some zones. Also, why is there no Save slots?! Expand

    Sonic the Hedgehog is a pretty decent platformer which will challenge you a lot more than other platformers. With a decent visual setting, decent gameplay and an amazing soundtrack this game will drag you back in again for to replay its 21 levels that will make you think before you leap or if you are a daredevil to race around all the enemies and obstacles as a challenge.

    Ah, Sonic. Simply put, an anthromorphic blue hedgehog with super-speed abilities. So why not make a game revolving around this character? SEGA did and the rest is history.

    Really hard and brutal game in the famous series. Green Hill Zone is the best level in the game. Marble Zone is brutal but well themed. Spring Yard Zone is weird. And Labyrinth Zone is just bad! The boss fights are really easy. Overall Sonic 1 is okay

    Un apartado audiovisual espectacular que hoy día me sigue pareciendo magnífico. Sin embargo, los juegos por aquel entonces tenían muchas carencias aun, que poco a poco se fueron subsanando, como es una historia digna o un diseño de niveles algo más ordenado.

    Игра удалась! Но.. Перепроходить игру ради сбора всех изумрудов и потом просто наблюдать чуть другую концовку.. Садизм!
