In my own opion I thought this game is really fun.
the good: Some bosses are hard, which I like. I like the stages there pretty fun. There is mini stages so when your done you have that to play. You can collect things from the past sonic games, which I thought was cool.
the bad: There is 2 bosses that get real frustrating after a while. The story is kind of short.
I loved the old sega genesis sonic games -particularly 2 and sonic and knuckles- the moment i heard the redone theme on the menu I got taken back to when I first played the originals all those years ago. I'd say this is a must play for any old sonic fan.

Not to bash another gamer's review or perspective but anyone who was a true fan of Sonic would NOT settle for this Classic/Modern garbage! Granted, revisiting some classic stages were cool. The modern versions were all blast through as fast as you can.
The Dreamcast era was nice but the havok engine was not the way to do it. In my opinion, Modern Sonic should revert back to Sonic Adventure's style of gameplay. He had every aspect of Adventure in that gameplay. Sonic Team never forced you to blast through the stages. Sonic's speed increased when running downhill and with dash panels (momentum) and you were able to enjoy the stage and it's beauty.
Since when did Sonic gain the ability to suddenly blast off? They turned him into a psychic. He can also use this ability when he's on other objects as well.
Sonic Team has truly lost it's Iconic Sega Character. This game is just a bitter reminder of what Sonic used be to us. They gave Sonic so many makeovers that I don't recognize him anymore. Sonic Adventure 1-2 was his plateau. If they would've continued the Adventure Series, instead of making that awful Sonic Heroes, Sonic would still be on top with Mario.
Sega is known for making bad executive decisions, given their history.
