Sonic can run, but he can't hide... FROM ME!

  • Excerpt: Back in 2002, Sonic Advance was not only the first Sonic game to ever appear on a Nintendo console, it was also a welcome return to the blue hedgehog's 2D platforming roots. Sonic had been meandering around in 3D adventure games for too long, so it was nice to see him going back to what had made him...
  • Pros: No real challenge, looks a bit ugly, won't last long
  • Cons: Good characters, quite cheap, good for a quick fix

  • Excerpt: Introduction I'll start by saying that this game was the reason I actually bought a Gameboy Advance. I am a huge fan of Sonic and his games, and this one brings back memories of some of Sonic's older 2D adventures. Gameplay - 8/10 This game faithful to the original in almost every way.
  • Pros: Ahhh sonic, cant get enough of you
  • Cons: Its Robotnik not Eggman !  !

  • Excerpt: Well, for once i feel neutral about a game. i used to LOVE the original sonic on the megadrive and since then i find myself missing the old side scrolling platformer. But since i bought Sonic advance, i've been on it for hours, it's like the old megadrive version was a cake with icing and sonic...

  • Pros: Extremely enjoyable
  • Cons: Story mode can be quite short lived

  • Excerpt: 11 years ago in 1991, SEGA developed a new mascot whowas intended to go head to head with Ninenndo's Mario. Where Mario was a very skilled game, Sonic games threw the script for platform games out the window and opted for eye blistering speed instead.
  • Pros: Classic Sonic gameplay, now handheld !
  • Cons: A bit short .

Sonic's back

  • Excerpt: Price: £35 Players: 1-4 Developer: SonicTeam Publisher: Sega Before you get suspicious, this is no port of Sonic2, as found on SNK’s ill-fated Neo Geo Pocket Colour. No, what you’ve got here is a brand new, full-on 2D platformer, with 8 massive levels and a bush of extra stuff, including a Chao...
  • Pros: A classic
  • Cons: the special stages are incredibly tough

Advanced Sonic

  • Excerpt: Who would have thought, Sonic on a Nintendo console, 5 years ago, the prospect was unthinkable. However, Sonic Team have come up with an idea that has been used before in previous Sonic games and is still a very playful game. I have had the game now for several weeks and have not got bored of it.
  • Pros: Seven levels of pure fun
  • Cons: Not the most original game

Sonic on the Advance ... BAH

Tribute, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog on a Nintendo console? 10 years ago, if I'd of said that to a hardcore gaming fanatic, they'd have laughed in my face, then gotten all of their geeky friends to beat me up with their braces. Now though, it's reality (Sonic on a Nintendo game, not the beating up story).
  • Pros: Sonic
  • Cons: un original
