  • Excerpt: The blue hedgehog came screaming out of the gate, claiming to be (as was true at the time) the fastest videogame ever made. But it was more than speed, it was fantastic level design, great graphics and wonderful music. This was followed by Sonic 2 (which introduced Miles "Tails" Prower), Sonic 3 (Featuring Knuckles) and Sonic & Knuckles (with innovative Lock-on technology which made past Sonic games useful again). Some other Sonic spinoffs came along (Sonic Spinball, Dr.

  • Summary: After seeing many compilations over the years it would be easy to think of this as an unexciting attempt to cash in on a popular franchise. Despite the fact that some people will be disappointed that some of the other sonic games didn't get onto the disc it's good to see some of the rare games such as Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.

  • Conclusion: If you haven't got a Mega Drive stashed up in the loft, or you have one and can't be bothered finding it and dusting it down, then this is the game for you. It certainly answers one of the criticisms levelled at the games industry in recent times, delivering great gaming and value for money at the same time.

  • Summary: Take a trip back in time with the character that redefined video games in Sonic Mega Collection for the Nintendo GameCube. Sonic Mega Collection is packed with seven classic Sonic games, each presented in its original blistering-fast form. Trace the blue blur's roots in the first three Sonic the Hedgehog games, and expand the experience with Sonic & Knuckles' lock-on technology. Then mix things up with Sonic Spinball, Sonic 3D Blast, and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.

  • Conclusion: Also included are some bonuses, like the history of the Sonic franchise, game movies, and a look at covers of the Sonic line of comic books. Almost everything you could possibly want to know about Sonic can be found in this great collection. A tribute to the early Sonic games is that they have aged remarkably well, in both their looks and their gameplay. The games in this GameCube reincarnation seem to have just a burst of extra visual shine.

  • Summary: Nintendoes what Nintendidn’t! Super Nintendo wins! Super Nintendo wins!
  • Pros: 1 excellent, unexpected secret game, Perfect emulation means genuine sound, controls and graphics., Sonic comic book museum and Sonic CD animations, The best Sonic action, all in one disc
  • Cons: Perfect emulation means all old glitches and quirks are still present., Perfect emulation means dated graphics and audio., Perfect emulation means only Sonic 3 (& Knuckles) has a save feature., Slightly lacking in quantity, Sonic Spinball is worthless.
