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 famous.
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.
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 advance was the iced cake with a big fat cherry on top the choice of character system is a brilliant idea, playing with knuckles is brilliant, seeing a character punch things and...
Pros: a must have for the classic sonic lovers
Cons: can get a little boring as levels are similar complexity
Excerpt: For any fans of Sega’s infamous mascot, this is a must game to play. Being their favourite mascot's first outing on a Nintendo console, Sega seem to have taken extra care to make sure that his fans were not disappointed with this game. With all the elements that made Sonic’s previous games a success, Sonic Advance blasts its way through all of its zones with super speed, with plenty of opportunities to grab rings, smash badniks, free animals and collect Chaos emeralds...
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. Sonic enjoyed great success on the 16 bit Mega Drive before being forced to move into the 3D era.
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 Garden for raising the little critters from Sonic’s Dreamcast outings.
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. The idea of the game is simple; the evil Scientist, Dr Eggman (Sonics enemy) has hatched another dastardly plot. He plans to build a Dr.
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). Sonic has come out for the most hallowed of Consoles, The GameBoy Advance.
