Expert Review

3 January 2012
  • Summary: History has not been kind to the Sega CD add-on, which has largely been regarded as a failure. Still, the console did have several excellent exclusives, among which was an ambitious time-hopping adventure in its most popular franchise. Sonic CD was one of the games that made a Sega CD worth owning.
  • Pros: A lot of fun platforming at a very good price, Faithfully converts the pixel look of the original to high-res, widescreen displays, Includes a huge variety of old and new unlockable extras, Offers a unique take on the classic Sonic formula
  • Cons: A few noticeable changes to core gameplay may annoy some, Some vocals removed due to licensing reasons, Wacky Workbench level isn't fun

Sonic CD review (PS3)

31 December 2011
  • Excerpt: doesn't meet the standard set by its more vanilla Genesis counterparts, though it doesn't fall nearly as short as it could have. Levels always have enough unique gimmicks to prevent them from blurring together in your memory. Each level effectively has four versions. By running past special posts, Sonic can travel through time and his actions in the past can change the future.

Sonic CD

5 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Tilbage i midthalvfemserne var min kærlighed til spil nøjagtig lige så enorm som den er i dag. Dengang var det dog med med noget mindre viden om branchen og et helt andet syn på hvorfor noget fungerede. Tag bare Sonic. Alle vidste (og hvis ikke skulle jeg nok forklare hvorfor), at Sonic var den fedeste spilfigur, hvis kampen skulle tages op mod Mario. For det første var han hurtigere, og for det andet var han sejere og... nej, så var der ikke flere årsager.
  • Pros: Fantastisk retrorejse, et af de dybeste Sonic-spil nogensinde
  • Cons: Kedelige bonusbaner, en anelse out-dated grafik

Sonic CD - Test

15 December 2011
  • Summary: Inzwischen ist die Auswahl an XBLA/PSN-Spielen endlos groß und ich werde euch nicht das Blaue vom Himmel versprechen, wenn ihr Sonic CD kauft. Ihr bekommt ein hervorragend spielbares Jump´n´Run im Look der frühen 90er mit stellenweise fast genial und sonst sehr gut entworfenen Leveln. Viele Stunden Spaß und wenn da nicht Sonic & Knuckles wäre, würde ich sagen, dass Sonic CD die Krönung der alten Igel-Historie war.
