Sonic Advance

Portable Review
8 August 2005
  • Excerpt: This review is long overdue and I figure that I definitely need to finish reviewing the Sonic Advance series for PR. Sonic Advance 2 and 3 were reviewed by me long before this one and I have actually already reviewed this title for my previous employer but that review got lost somewhere in between transition. The Sonic series has always been a favorite of mine, partially due to the fact that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Genesis was my first videogame ever.

Sonic Advance – Review

  • Excerpt: To the new generation of young gamers, playing a Sonic The Hedgehog title on a Nintendo platform might not seem like anything that extraordinary, for it just represents another side-scrolling title. Yet, for anyone having owned a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis and still retaining a bit of knowledge of the early nineties’ console war, such a thing would have been unthinkable even two years ago.

  • Excerpt: The transition from video game super power to just another publisher is rather harsh, especially for a company like Sega. I am still not used to playing Sega titles on Xbox and PS2, let alone the GCN, considering that Nintendo and Sega were rivals for somewhere around 10+ years. It seems as if Sega has become everyone’s new “best friendâ€?

  • Summary: If you've heard of Sega, you've heard of Sonic the Hedgehog. From his debut on the 16-bit Genesis system to his latest 3D incarnation in Sonic Adventure 2, old blue has set the pace for fast-action gaming. Soon, Sonic will speed his way to the small screen in Sonic Advance for the Game Boy Advance system. The game is in development now and the game's features aren't locked down yet, but here's a little taste of the supersonic goodness to come.
  • Pros: 4 Playable Characters, Classic Gameplay, Great Sound Effects, Lasting Multiplayer Appeal, Sharp Graphics
  • Cons: Music Slightly Lacking

  • Excerpt: Sega was desperate. Their competitor, Nintendo, was raking in the dough with sales of their powerful Super Nintendo Entertainment System, largely due to a certain charismatic, red overall-wearing plumber. Sega knew that in order to successfully compete with the Big N they needed an enigmatic mascot of their own.

  • Summary: Sonic comes to Game Boy Advance in a big way. Read the full review inside.

  • Cons: Amy’s abilities don’t mesh well with the level design., Bonus stages in all the glory of fake 3-D. Ugh!
