Saying that, the 'Chemical Zone Act 2' level can really p**s me off some times!


It wouldn't be the moving platforms by any chance, would it?


No matter how many times I've played that game, I always mistime it, and end up falling into the water,
then rushing back up to the surface, with about two seconds to spare :oops:

Its got to be Sonic 2.

Team Sonic got the dynamics of a 'Sonic' game absolutely spot on in Sonic 2.

Sonic 1.
It was fresh, it was new. It was completely uncomplicated. ONE BUTTON! :lol:

Sonic 1 for me as it reinvented a way of gaming that seemed forgotten. The speed and colour of it all, as it kept you going back for more.

I can't remember if I already posted in this thread, but if I have, I've changed my mind. If I could only play one Sonic game ever again, it would be Sonic R. It was the first game I had on the Saturn, and I played it to death, learnt each track back to front and inside out. I still had a blast with it on the Gems Collection a few years back.

It's was a very hard choice but I would have to go with Sonic 3. If I remember correctly it came with the Model 2 that my parents got for me in 1996 but I can't be too sure. I just really enjoyed the levels and the music. It really is one of those games I can just pop in on the fly and play from start to finish anytime as well. I remember playing the original Sonic well before that with my older brothers but when compared with Sonic 3 it didn't come close to it's brilliance.

Perfect! I was looking everywhere for a 53-DVD set of Teletubbies!

Being able to push down and charge up my spin made all the difference for me, so Sonic 2.
