Now they must team up to defeat their enemies, save their friends, and find out who is behind this diabolical deed.

Pretty fun so far, I enjoy classic sonic the best tho. Also classic Sonic levels are more fun to me, the New Sonic level are meh tbh, but not horrible. Way better game then Sonic Lost World.

I don't even know why I bought this game, or why I even tried to get the highest record on every stage. But to say the least I enjoyed for what it is, and it's very amusing seeing all the Sonic Fan-made characters (not really)

Pros:

-You have both types of Sonic gameplay (Oldschool and Modern).

-The stages are fun, unique, nostalgic and provide with a decent challenge.

-A new skill system which provides a little depth to Sonic.

Cons:

-The game is short, even for a Sonic game.

-The final boss battle is lackluster.

-It is a huge shame that you can't play as the other Sonic characters such as Shadow, Knuckles, Blaze etc.

Going into this i figured it would be just like every sonic game, The first level was fast and fun while giving you the impression that it would all be that way. However when playing this further i realized it is nothing like the others, Every level was enjoyable both Classic and Modern. Controls were a bit sticky feeling on Classic but that could of just been the program i'm using to emulate a Xbox360 Controller from a PS4 Controller.

Gameplay - it's enjoyable and is definitely one of the better modern sonic games (Not a fan of the whole boost to win thing), Highly recommend this to current fans of Sonic and old Fans from the Classic Era.

Story - It is kinda generic. Enemy attack, Sonic must save his friends, You defeat him in a Special Transformation... same thing as the last. However the way the story played out and the whole idea behind Classic Sonic was pretty cool.

Features - This game is choked full of Secrets/Unlockables and to my surprise even had a few *only Unlocked through Codes* That you can find online... no games do that anymore, Last game i remember was Black Ops 2. You can unlock some of the BEST Sonic Songs in history, You can unlock artwork, Collect Statues, Replay all Cutscenes. Possibly the best part about the Features in this game is that EVERY SONG can be added to any level at any time before playing it. You can beat a Boss then later replay that boss with *Live & Learn* instead, This added many hours of gameplay for me. I loved racing down a Modern City Escape with *Endless Possibilities* Playing.

Mods - This game has many many MANY Mods, Sonic Team themselves even endorsed the idea of Mods in this game by allowing them. You have mods allowing you to play as Shadow on City Escape and instead of using a board you are riding his motorcycle from the game *Shadow the hedgehog*, all the way to playing as Silver or even changing the looks of Bosses. P.S. - Not sure about Mod Stages... have not gotten that far.

For $20 i Definitely would recommend for old and new Fans of Sonic, Getting this on sale is a must if possible.

7.8/10

I really liked it, my computer wasn't that great at handling this though (cutscenes weren't synced correctly because of lag) but I still liked the high speed modern sonic stages. 6 stars, A++.
