PostSubject: Reviewing the Game   Mon Feb 15, 2010 3:12 pm

I must say that I'm both appalled and disappointed that nobody here even gives this game the honors of a mentioning in this forum seeing as to how this is the #1 must important game for the history of both Sega and Sonic team. This is the one thing that started it all (even the topic description has the respects of mentioning that). Well I decided that I would give this game my own personal reviews taking all of the aspects into account.

Storyline: 9/10

As the very first of all Sonic games there to be honest wasn't really much of a storyline to follow through with this game. All it pretty much was, was a speedy blue hedgehog is fighting off a tyrannical lunatic madman scientist going by the name of Dr. Robotnik (Dr. Eggman in Japanese) who has besieged his homeland on the Southern Island entrapping all the little critters (Flickies) into evil badnik robots in proclamation of world domination. It of course would make sense since nobody even knew how well this game was going to sell to continue the series off to add more storyline development. Despite it being a brief storyline it's actually what I like about this game. Just like Sonic it's a speedy storyline getting straight to the point. (Kick Robotnik's butt)

Graphics: 9/10

If you were to go by a gamer's perspective going back in time with the very first release of this game onto the Sega Master System platform, this was actually an amazing technological feat. The release of this game made even Nintendo quack their boots about this game. Not only did this game boast superior graphical capabilities but, it even provided a much faster speedy sense of gameplay. You could feel yourself in Sonic's shoes zipping through the levels smashing through the badniks with ease with a sense of accomplishment at the end of every level. The high detailed luscious background scenery and all of the greenery in the beginning stages and the starlit sky and the wacky casinos helped to give a much better sense of the environments you were in. It's a true nostalgic classic to behold.

Music/ Sound affects: 9/10

This game not only packed heat in the graphics department but also held up really well with the music and sound affects as well. You can notice a huge revolutionary change from the primitive 8-bit Mario games to this newfangled 16 bit game's music and all it has to offer. I even occasionally found myself whistling Green Hill Zone and I love the sound affects as Sonic smashing his way through the badniks and zipping past the finish line at the end of every act.

Gameplay/ Replay: 9.5/10

I save the best for last!! We can now get down the real deal that gave this game it's name and made Sonic just what Sonic is today. The gameplay! This game has captured so many people's hearts seeing their speedy blue hero as he zips through every level smashing and destroying everything on the screen and they get the feel of his speed as they zip through all the loops seeing as the scenery passes by. This game has truly outdone itself with it's heavy set of gameplay and a large sense of accomplishment as you finish the game. I also feel it holds strong on the replay-value as it's just as fun EVERY time whenever I play this game again, and again, and again.

Overall: 9.5/10

I definitely give this game an A+ without moment's hesitation. This game gives you everything a speedy gamer wants. A fast straight to the point game with nothing but intense action. This game was truly both revolutionary and legendary. If you haven't played this game yet I highly recommend you do so. Your in for a helluva time! ^_^

Great review, this first game was indeed a milestone in gaming history (sorry about there being no topic in here, we just opened a few months ago, so our post count it still low Embarassed )

Sonic the Hedgehog's premiere game is a lot of fun, and you're right, it doesn't lose it's greatness even on many repeat playings. Of course, the honor of greatest classic Sonic game IMHO, belongs to Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (but I may have speical bias for that one Wink ).

Thanks! Wink I just enjoy reviewing games and stating my own opinions about each individual game and seeing your great array of topics for each individual game just gave me an itching desire to give each game it's own unique review. And that's what I plan on doing lol! I bet that the by the time I'm done you could write my every review and place it into a BOOK! haha! But, I am going to try to post up as many reviews as possible on each and every sonic game ^_^ -winks- Thank you for your positive feedback. I'll try my best of efforts to contribute to this online community as much as possible.
