    This game didn't really get alot of attension back in the Genesis days, since not many people had a Sega CD. This game is probably the best Sonic game that isn't developed by Sonic Team. Gameplay: A simple 2D Sonic... Read Full Review

    This was one of the few truly great games offered for the Sega CD system. Right from the opening movie, you knew you had something special. In terms of controlling Sonic, nothing had really changed, but it still felt so ... Read Full Review

    Sonic CD is an amazing game.

    Sonic CD is probably the only good game on the short lived Mega CD. But even still this is not a game to be missed by any Sonic fan. If you have played any of the Sonic game on the Mega Drive (Genesis) then you will fit ... Read Full Review

    A good Sonic game, but not my favorite Sonic game.
