    Really, no matter how you look at it, Sonic Mania is a huge success and Sonic Mania Plus is a celebration of that success thanks to smart physical edition design and items and valuable new in-game content. At only $30, it’s a superb deal and a release I would recommend be on anyone’s short list of must-haves.

    Sonic Mania was the perfect homage to the classic hedgehog games. Plus version adds two new characters, 4 player coop split screen, new game modes and a great physical edition, so it gets even better.

    Sonic Mania Plus cranks the game up to eleven with its new content and it is a must-play for fans of the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2D platformers.

    Simply put, even if you've never played a Sonic game, you'll still have a ton of fun within the exciting world of Sonic Mania Plus.

    Those looking for more Sonic could do far worse than this title, but don’t expect the extras to live up to the lofty standards set by Mania Mode.

    For only a $5 upgrade fee, they get all of those warm fuzzy feelings but with two great new characters and a small handful of remixed content that doesn’t quite break the bank nor provide a ton of value. However, the early 1990s infrastructure that the game prides itself on hasn’t aged quite as gracefully and, while it still has plenty of charm, it doesn’t fit in as elegantly with the current 2018 era that it’s being released in.

    Sonic mania does what it should do. Excellent gameplay, Amazing level designs. This game was my favorite since my childhood and it is stillSonic mania does what it should do. Excellent gameplay, Amazing level designs. This game was my favorite since my childhood and it is still fun for modern day. BGMs are great also. The bad part, however, is a lack of online COOP, otherwise I would give a 10.

    Fun game. I hope they bring more levels.

    Sonic Mania is good, but it got even better with its DLC Encore Mode, which makes it like Sonic Mania Plus, its definitive summer which ISonic Mania is good, but it got even better with its DLC Encore Mode, which makes it like Sonic Mania Plus, its definitive summer which I recommend the most.
    The game itself is very good, but it gets to be repetitive because it recycles a lot of the old scenarios, and has few new levels, so the DLC makes the title more interesting, in addition to adding two characters that were well forgotten, adds Encore Mode , where it leaves the phases with a different coloring (some in my opinion more beautiful than the original ones like Chemical Plant and Oil Ocean), different and more challenging level design, and mechanics also changes.
    Sonic Mania itself is an excellent game, with nostalgic graphics and a great soundtrack, but one thing that bothers me and that I already mentioned was repeating the old scenarios, we've seen Green Hill many times, was it really necessary? Except that if I want to play in the classic scenarios, I simply play the classics that are even accessible on Sega Genesis Classic Collection.
    But still with these points this game remains great and remembering, I already recommend with its DLC, which in this case would be the definitive summer.
    I recommend!

The graphics are fricking horrible. This game would have been way better if it was released back in the 90's era. This isn't the time to release something like this, especially due to it being the 3d era of Sonic. It's not the time to release a fricking 2d Sonic game. Due to this being a fangame, I thought this would be better than a official sonic game but no, I was indeed wrong. Expand
