    The best Sonic pinball game ever.

    Sonic's first pinball game. Ther have only been 3 Sonic games to do with pinball and this is far by the best. The other pinball games are Sonic Spinball for the Game Gear and Sonic Pinball Party on the GBA. Even knowing ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball

  • User Rating:4.5

    It's not all that great

    I like a lot of 2D Sonic games, even the spin-offs but this isn't one of them. I agree with a lot of users...this game was frustrating and nothing more. GAMEPLAY: Pretty poor IMO. It is very unenjoyable and every time... Read Full Review

    Sonic Spinball is an odd and somewhat unsatisfying spinoff of the Sonic series.

    Sonic the Hedgehog held quite the appeal back in the early 90's with the success of his various platformers on the Genesis - all were fairly popular (Sonic 2 in particular) and enjoyed good sales. Where they differed gre... Read Full Review

    Sonic sure plays a mean pinball, and the game is a gem for platforming fans.

    The good: Colorful graphics and punkish music, a long challenge to beat the game, awesome bonus stages, very addictive The bad: Insanely difficult, Bonus Stage has no control of pinball Game-play: 8/10 Graphics: 8/1... Read Full Review

    One of the most underrated Sonic games.....and one of the most challenging...

    Sonic had some awesome games back in the 90's and even though this game probably isn't as good as Sonic 1, 2, or 3, it's still a pretty good game. In fact, it's one of the most underrated Sonic games of all time. The... Read Full Review

    Sonic spinball is AWESOME!!

    This I thought at first was difficult, but then I got used to it. I think the story line is Sonic trying to reach to Dr. Robotnic and try to stop his evil plans, but in a different way. This really isn't your normal 2-D ... Read Full Review

    Sonic Spinball puts a fun twist (no pun intended) on Sonic games, and is very fun for fans of the games.

    Basically this is just a pinball game, with Sonic as the ball, and Sonic things as the theme. Though that shouldn’t make it sound boring, because it’s not. It’s actually pretty fun, and combines two of my favorite thin... Read Full Review

    Do not go near this one.

    Sonic Spinball is a blotch in the shining history of classic Sonic the Hedgehog games. Only buy this if you have a collection to complete, or enjoy frustrating pinball games. Now let's just move onto another Sonic game i... Read Full Review
