Sonic Classic Collection review

Sonic Classic Collection Review

21 August 2010
  • 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.

Sonic Classic Collection Review (DS)

  • 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.

'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.

Sonic Classic Collection [DS] Review

7 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Sonic is the 80s Child Actor of the games industry.  Think about it: once upon a time, he was the biggest thing since sliced 1-up.  He had the world on a string and the moon on a stick.  Everything he did was gold.  Then it started to go wrong.  He fell in with a bad crowd, useless hangers-on and tagalongs dogging his every step.  His handlers mismanaged him, forcing him into bad career decisions.
  • Pros: Shows most recent Sonic games how it should be done, A collection of four of the finest games ever to grace a console…
  • Cons: …which are emulated horribly., What in the name of hell were you thinking with that pause button?!  We have a Start button that works fine!  Use it!!

Review: Sonic Classic Collection

1 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The original Sonic games have aged brilliantly. Unfortunately this collection has been made with little-to-no effort resulting in framerate issues that bring them down.
  • Pros: Still a lot of fun
  • Cons: Framerate issues, No multiplayer, No extras

Sonic Classic Collection

Ready Up
23 March 2010
  • Summary: It's the routine Sonic classic compilation release, except this time it's on the Nintendo DS. If you like portable Sonic fun and have a DS, then this is for you. If you're a more hardcore fan of the blue needlemouse looking for something more substantial, then this game has nothing new to offer and you're better off saving your rings for something else.
