About This Game

It’s time to usher the past into the future in this enhanced recreation of Sonic CD!
Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet - a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it.
Sonic arrives only to find the once beautiful world imprisoned beneath a twisted metallic shell. His arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has come for the Time Stones and with them, will soon have the power to control time itself!
In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman’s nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman’s hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones!
Featuring 16:9 widescreen, achievements, leaderboards and both the US and Japanese soundtracks, experience the adventure through time that introduced the world to Amy the Hedgehog and Eggman’s most evil creation, Metal Sonic.

Sonic CD may look on first try as a repeatative game, but it is not. Every zone in this game has its own unique ideas which are executed well. An extremely great soundtrack( play it on JP ) and many secrets to find. Sonic CD is a hidden gem that should at least be tried by any Jump and run fan. The combination between the secrets, the great level design and the soundtrack is it worth to give it a try!

Rating 8/10

If it was not for the game the SEGA CD would not sell really well in the same concept where Rob the Robot sold the NES back in the day. The SEGA / MEGA CD was a rididulously priced add on for its time and it produced some good gems and known for their hillarious novelty. The developer of this game from what I read online built this game from scratch to make it HD. They did a very good job of building this game. However, I can't understand why the Japanese Intro when you start a new game does not have any lyrics to it. Because of the Smooth Framerate you may have difficulty passing certain points of the game. The worst part of the game is Stage 2-3 (I think is Collision Chaos) The Smooth framerate makes it next to impossible to go up to the top and defeat Dr Robotnik) You need real skill to do this. It was easier in the Sega CD Edition. This game is a worth addtiion to your collection but its not a true emulation of the original game like the Sega Genesis indivudal titles are. You have been warned.

Sonic CD is a 2d plaform adventure game.

For the game who do know what sonic is about... very simpel... you are blue hedgehog and he likes to go fast !!!
This is a perfect port from the original Sonic CD from the '90 era.
I've played the original and this new version has so many improvements.
Not only sounds as graphics are much better now you have the option to play ase other characters and have more than 1 saves.
Alle video's are high quality now and this makes the Sonic CD game complete.

I've played all the old games and I think Sonic CD is one of the best from the Sega Mega Drive Era
Controling sonic characters feels very smooth and you have the feeling of real speed.
Race your way though the levels to defend the evil !!!

Great updated Sonic game and plays very good.
I give it a 8/10 score.

Being a huge fan of the classic Sonic games, I can safely say that this game was a lot of fun to playthrough and I can’t believe it has taken me this long to play it

Also I loved the Tidal Tempest Zone because it felt a lot like the Labyrinth Zone from Sonic 1
