Anyone tried it yet? I think it came out yesterday. I am DL'ing it right now. From the footage I've seen it looks pretty impressive, but kinda tacky in some ways. It has a veneer of something amateurish and fan-made.

Well, it is actually fan-made by amateurs.

But that's probably a good thing as there hasn't been a truly memorable Sonic game since Sonic 3 & Knuckles. This was one of my favorite childhood games and I played the ever-living crap out of it.

I am excited to see how this one lives up. Many reviewers are claiming it's even better than the classic cartridges we longed for.

Let me know what you think of it.

Yes. It's more Sonic. Essentially it's what Sonic 4 should have been.

Each stage is a sort of rework of previous ones but it's not done like a cheesy ripoff or halfhearted style of typical fangame garbage. It's actually good if you liked the old Sonic 1-3 games.

I was pretty surprised by it and it hit the nostalgia spot pretty hard.

Yeah I did Sonic 4. Wow what a waste of microsoft points or whatever their currency was.

I think I finished each 'episode' (is that what they called them?) In a single day. 100% completion.

Sonic 1-3 + Knuckles and Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 are the only Sonic games as far as I'm concerned.

I've played more titles, but they just sit as spin-off fringe games to me.

My roommate has it. I've watched a few levels. It looks pretty good but it does seem more like a really impressive rom hack than a brand new game. Still the best looking sonic game to come out in years.

Agreed. For as good as it is, it feels too fan-made like a rom hack. Again, that's essentially what it is--

But I wanted a new, original Sonic 2D game, not a another mod.

Oh well, maybe in another 27 years

Who can forget...


My favourite aside from the original is Sonic 2 , even bought it on Sonic 2sday (Tuesday).

I'll probably pick up Sonic Mania but I need a controller for my PC to play , can't play it with mouse and keyboard.

I've tried this game! It's light and entertaining, I like such games. Now I also play sonic and mario games at www.friv2online.com... and I can say that these games are really addictive. I can play them even at work.
