This is a good Sonic, but not as good as Sonic 3. If I had to order the Genesis era games (now that I’ve played them all), it would go Sonic CD, Sonic 3, Sonic 2, Sonic & Knuckles, and last, Sonic 1. I’m going to keep the review short because again, if you’ve played Sonic, you know what to expect. Something neat about this one is there’s a boss at the end of each act. Playing through Lava Reef Zone is fun if you have the fire power-up, cause the lava can’t hurt you. Also, Sky Sanctuary Zone brings back some classic Sonic boss fights. The Knuckles adventure is very similar to the Sonic one, so don’t feel obligated to play it.
