Hedgehog with attitude, doesn't live under the shed.

Excerpt: I want you to sit back for a minute and take yourself back to 1991, I want you to sit on that couch you had back then, i want you perhaps to get a cool refreshing drink... Turn on your telly.. and listen.... Seeeegaa, oh my word do you remember that sound, that sound just epitomized my younger days, and it's good to see that the Wii virtual console hasn't let any of that charm go, something so simple that captivated kids and adults alike for years and years.
Excerpt: Taking you back in time now to the year 1991. Nintendo reigns supreme aided by the charm of their princess saving plumber. Sega desperately attempts to find it's own console selling mascot to rival Nintendo's success with such attempts as Alex Kidd , Wonder Boy and Opa-Opa which never really caught on. But finally a certain blue sneaker wearing hedgehog enters the scene and a new video game star is born.
Excerpt: When I saw this title available on the Wii virtual console, I had to purchase it immediately. Once fired up it immediately too me back to Christmas day 1992, or was it 91, my memory escapes me. Nostalgic thoughts came flooding back at the sound "SEGA!" and then the music kicked in... Wow, this was identical to the Mega Drive version, minus the grainy quality of non-scart TVs of that era.
Well worth buying if you haven't still got your old Sega.

Excerpt: Sonic The Hedgehog for the Wii is a full, faithful port of the original Sega Megadrive title. It has all the same graphics, levels, bosses and animations of the original, but for the Wii format. The only thing that has been changed in the slightest is the high-score system, which has been Wi-Fi enabled, marginally improved and updated. This is a classic side-scrolling platformer that adults and kids alike can, and indeed have played until the cows come home.
If you have sonic on another platform this is not for you, if you don't, I highly recommend this!
