Summary: My only nit-pick with this goes to the game itself and not the seller. However, the seller was great, shipped fast and the game arrived in great condition with a clean like-new box. But the game requires you to beat each of the Sonic collection in order to unlock any of the other games staring our favorite Blue Hedgehog... to me that just feels time-consuming.... but to each their own.
Summary: I purchased this game for my 5 year old son. He loves this game. It has some of the games I remember playing myself as a child. Some levels are easy and some are challenging for him. In all this was a great purchase for him.
Excerpt: I had a similar experience with another reviewer with the game only functioning in Demo mode. I took it back to where I purchased (overpriced competitor, but staffed with the 18-21 crowd that is video game savvy). After some playing around with it, we learned to press the start button when the screen loads and says "press start." Unfortunately, using the touch controls on the lower screen do not work for this function, or for loading and saving of games.
Summary: I've been playing Sonic since I was about 7, I can still remember getting home from my friends house and seeing a Megadrive sitting in front of the TV and nearly fainting with excitement. Now I love Sonic, all the original games are great. But I have a few problems with these DS ports: Number One: You can't play 'Sonic and Knuckes and Sonic 3' Combined which means there is no level select for Sonic and Knuckles after you've completed it, and no Doomsday Zone.
Summary: I had a few problems loading the game at first - but after looking online it seems to be a common problem. To start the 1st game you have to keep pressing start before the demo game starts!! Other than that its pretty good - brings back memories of childhood. On the ds though its abit too fast for me and i prefer it on a tv to a handheld console. It still passes time and i find myself picking it up every now and again to see if ive gt the hand of it yet!!
Summary: Bought this game as had heard so much about Sonic games but just not for me. First of all it seemed to go at a pace which I was unable to keep up with and all it seemed to be about was catching the rings as you went along - I realise I much prefer games where there is an element of working out manoeuvres and decisions to enable me to progress with the game. Probably younger ones would enjoy this game or someone who likes quick action games, just not for me.
Excerpt: Sonic Riders Zero Gravity, Sonic Generations, Sonic Colours... They are nice games, but who doesn't remember the classic Sonic, in 2D, collecting rings and fighting against Dr. Eggman? Those are simple games, but they are fun and entartaining. Well, now you can play some of those simple games if you have a Ningendo DS (or 3DS) and a little amount of money!
Pros: An opportunitie to play classic games with Nintendo DS
Sonic Classic Collection, As it says on the tin....
2 August 2010
Excerpt: Loving this game at the moment, being an 80's child and from the era of Sonic v Mario, this took me right back to the days of the Megadrive. Easy to use and navigate. Its fun for both the young and young at heart. Both myself and my mother enjoy playing it and even my four year old nephew has given it a go, although he doesnt seem to enjoy it so much as his newer games for the DS.
Excerpt: After my Megadrive review it was evident many were fans of Sonic and the franchise, so here is a review of 4 Sonic games on 1 cartridge. Sonic classic collection was released on the 2nd March 2010 and features Sonic 1 to 3, Sonic and knuckles. What I should point at this point is that this collection really adds nothing special and new, its just the games, a few pictures and thats it. But if thats all your looking for then let us move on......
Summary: I bought this game out of nostalgia. I remember having a friend with a Sega and going over to her house solely to play Sonic (I think the original and possibly the second game as well). We spent hours playing and it was a lot of fun. Maybe I have higher demands now. The Super Mario 64 game that I also have for my DS is a revamp of the original game with new levels and added treasures, as well as enhanced graphics.
