    I don't know why everyone puts this version of the game down, it's actually pretty good. :idea:

    There are two different types of games. There are original games (including sequels) and then there are re-released games released onto different formats. Some people might instantly think that "Sonic the Hedgehog Genesi... Read Full Review

    An extremely disappointing port of one of the greatest platformer's of all time.

    Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis is a fantastic game. It brought something new and original to the gaming market, and gave Nintendo''s juggernaut mascot Mario, a run for his money. The graphics were bright, colorfu... Read Full Review

    Just needs a few more tweeks.

    Sonic the Hedgehog on the Genesis was not only the original, but also one of the best Sonic games ever created. So, of course, Sega would make a remake for the GBA. Almost everything is the same. Almost. Story: Same ... Read Full Review
