Sonic Gems Collection – Review

GameCritics.com
19 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Sonic Gems Collection basically dares its audience to ask one question: does merely being old qualify a game for 'classic' status, or did the game have to be good in the first place? Sonic Gems offers three previously unrereleased Sonic games, as well as eight other 'bonus' titles, bringing the grand total up to 11.

Sonic Gems Collection Review

8 June 2006
  • Excerpt: Sonic Gems Collection is a rather odd compilation of Sonic games. Sonic Mega Collection on the GameCube featured seven Sonic games from the Megadrive era and Sonic Mega Collection Plus on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox featured the same Sonic games plus an assortment of other SEGA titles.

Review : Sonic Gems Collection for Gamecube

  • Conclusion: Hopefully Sonic team will make a collection of their good Non Sonic games like Burning Rangers and Nights in Dreams and hopefully the Nintendo Revolution virtual machines will be like this. This is s great collection of Sega games for only 20 bucks and is a perfect companion to Sonic Mega Collection.

  • Excerpt: Some may argue that Sonic has worn out his welcome by now, but there’s no arguing that some of the classics can still rock. Sonic Gems collection is a compilation of Sonic games that most casual and some hardcore gamers might have missed out on due to Sega’s phase of bringing out new technology every six months such as the Sega CD or platforms that just flat out failed like the Game Gear and Saturn.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Sonic Gems Collection is a pretty average Sonic retro collection - but still essential for fans. Despite the amount of content available in the collection, the rarity of some of the titles like Sonic the Fighters, and the inviting price tag, this is by no means the definitive Sonic compilation.

  • Summary: Is this really a collection of gems, or is it all plastic jewelry? Find out inside.
  • Pros: Japanese ROMs yield Engrish. GO KNUCLES!, Museum of unlockable artwork, remixes, and secrets, Obscure and hard-to-find games, finally conveniently available, Sonic CD is a solid Sonic game, Three unexpectedly good Game Gear games
  • Cons: Asinine requirements for some unlockables, Inconsistent and clumsy menus, Low-resolution artwork, Most of the games are disappointing, Vectorman needs a customized seizure warning

Sonic Gems Collection Review

GameSpot
24 August 2005
  • Summary: Despite the inclusion of some fan favorites and rarities, most of the games in Sonic Gems Collection simply aren't good enough to warrant being called "classics.
  • Pros: First official US release for Sonic the Fighters, Great version of Sonic CD
  • Cons: Most of the games? Not so good, Poor emulation on the Game Gear games, Vectorman, instead of Streets of Rage, is weak
