Sonic [Original] Classic Review

It’s Friday again! I decided this will be my last post for the rest of this week. 

Sonic was released back in June of 1991 for the Sega Genesis. I have very fond memories of playing this game. I was only two years old when this game came out.

This is the game that started the franchise that we all know and love, but you can argue that no Sonic game has come close to the one’s that released on the Sega consoles.

The gameplay in Sonic is simple. You have to reach the other side of the stage without dying. There will be plenty of obstacles in your way.

Sonic was really unique back in the day. I had never played a game that was so fast. Sonic’s fast movement was something that appealed to me the most as a child.

SonicThe gameplay is simple, but can be challenging for first timers. You run from one side of the stage to the next trying to stop Robotnik from taking over the world. You can jump on top of enemies to kill them and free the animals that are locked inside them. There is a single checkpoint on each stage.

At the end of every stage you’ll fight Dr. Robotnik. He’ll have some sort of new invention for you to fight. All of the boss fights are a ton of fun. I never get tired of seeing Robotnik fly away because he just got his ass handed to him by Sonic.

The best thing about this game has to be the soundtrack. Every single track in this game is amazing. My favorite track is actually on the very first stage in the game.

There are some secret areas in the game. Some areas can only be accessed by doing Sonic’s classic roll attack. If you do this in certain areas the wall will break apart and you’ll be able to find some extra goodies before fighting Robotnik again.

Sonic has some of the best level designs that I’ve ever played in any game and it truly has stood the test of time. The game looks as good today as it did when it first came out and I can still lose myself in it. There are many Sonic games out there, but none of them will ever make me feel the way the very first game did.

Our Verdict: 9/10

  1. Sonic’s floating pinball crystal challenges and Sonic 2’s 3d’ish races were just sublime. 1 was much harder than 2 and reminds me today that casual game play is different today than it was.
