Sonic Classic Collection Review

VideoGamer.com

  • Excerpt: It seems almost pointless talking about if Sonic Classic Collection on the DS is good. This is the four Mega Drive platforming games together on the DS for the first time, and you also get the option to link up fourth game, Sonic & Knuckles, with Sonic 2 and Sonic 3. It's without a doubt, a great selection of games, and quite rightfully classics of the 16-bit era, but as a collection, it feels a little lightweight.

  • Conclusion: Fun, challenging and frustrating in just the right measures, the collection highlights the respect Sonic holds as an old-school entity, even though the years that followed spelt disaster and led to his dethroning as a modern icon. The games here do have their flaws – for example, there’s no charge spin in the first game, spikes pop out just when you’ve picked up a reasonable speed and the projectiles are even more irritating than before as you struggle to make them out...

  • Summary: Nothing really new added to the games, just repackaged for play on the Nintendo DS. Slightly more cheaper than buying them on the Wii Virtual Console and you can play on the go.

Four Genesis Sonic games for one low price.

  • Conclusion: Sonic Classic Collection is a good, but flawed compilation for the Nintendo DS that just screams “small budget, short development cycle!” It is what it is: four great Sonic games accurately ported to a half-assed compilation.

  • Summary: Sonic Classic Collection could have been a true must-have for DS-owning Sonic fans, but sadly it’s marred by enough small issues to put you off playing for too long. The games themselves still shine, just not as brightly as they should.

'Sonic Classic Collection' (DS)

Digital Spy
25 April 2010
  • Excerpt: in shaping the platform genre. The character's early 2D outings were instrumental in Sega's rise to prominence, providing gamers with a welcome alternative to portly plumbers and blocks bearing question marks. Sonic's adventures haven't translated particularly well to three dimensions, which is probably why Sega revisits the original games at every given opportunity.
