    Rush had awful boss battles. I remember one of those bosses involved button mashing and that's when I gave up.

    Also, the Sonic Advance games ripped entire chunks of stages from the original Mega Drive games and reassembled them with new artwork. I'm surprised nobody picked up on that at the time! I was quite disappointed when I finally got around to playing those.

    Oooh - those vids have me feeling so pumped!

    Pity that there's not some kind of Dynamic Theme with the pre-order for this - would love one based around the animation in that trailer.

    I love the thought that the Saturn could run this without breaking a sweat.

    A talented team could port this to the 32X, using Knuckles Chaotix as a starting point.

    Fantastic stuff.

    I'm pretty fed up that this is digital only.

    I'd be tempted to sellotape my Sonic 2 cartridge to the top of the PS4

    They should really give this guy a budget to make a sonic 5. Let him design and make everything and put some modern polish on it. He obviously gets what sonic is, which nobody at sega has since 1996 or so.

    I'm not that fussed to play a new mega drive sonic (young me wouldn't be happy with that comment), so I'll pick it up in a sale but glad it has good reviews.

    Just have him make Sonic 4, then we can just pretend the other one didn't happen.

    I'd love to see what he could do with the Sonic 4 episode 2 engine. The physics on sonic were alright in that game. If you got him to design the stages it would be a great combination.

    Were the physics different in Sonic 4 Ep 2? The physics in the first episode put me off so much I never bothered with Ep 2.

    Yeah they fixed it after the complaints from episode 1. It played like a mega drive sonic pretty much. The levels design was shit though and gimmicky.

    Read this having not yet seen the front page and got a big smile on my face. Didn't realise just how much I'd missed decent Sonic games. :)

    Whoa, whoa, it's a "best of remix" plus three new stages?

    Gonna boot up Kega Fusion and have a blast at the originals, fuck that :(

    It's worth pointing out it's from the POV of someone who clearly doesn't like the old games, so that's actually a great score. Especially when the flaws are apparently that it's better than the originals, but not by enough. So I guess you should add a couple of points if you are of the intended audience, ie a fan of MD Sonic.

    I question some of what's said though. Like the old games having no continues when you're out of lives, when they absolutely did :/

    To be honest I was slightly disappointed to hear that too. I don't really want to play Green Hill and all those levels again, even if the layouts are different.

    Well you had to earn them so they obviously just weren't very good!

    @Fuzzy

    Well, buy this game and show Sega we want a PROPER SONIC 4 finally.

    We have that opportunity now, we need to leap on it. If this sells gangbusters they can't ignore it.

    There's no guarantee they will stop making shit 3d corridor runners even if this sells well. I reckon they'd just make a sonic mania 2 with sprites but with new zones. Which I would be more interested in really from the outset.

    I mean, they're making another 3D one at the moment as well. If both styles make money then they might as well just keep them going, particularly as Mania was a 3rd party dev team.

    I played this at EGX and unlike everybody else, I played Green Hill Zone instead of the new zone. I can tell you that “remix” isn’t fair. The levels seemed at least twice as large.

    It was really fucking weird getting to the “end” of act 1, only to have it carry on.

    Oh shit I’m excited now. An essential, new 2D Sonic game. It feels good just to say it.

    I bloody loved the Megadrive games, the positive reviews have really reignited my fire.
