I used to love Sonic games when I was growing up and Genesis games were just hitting the market. Thought I'd try this out as I'm running out of games to play from Gamefly and well, after a few levels of being bored I sent it back.
Story seems pretty childish also but that's probably what they intended.
At some points you can get running too fast to see what is ahead of you and there is nothing you can do about it unless you have the zone memorized. Most of the time you can control your speed but some spots it does it for you and you end up face first into a set of spikes (unless you have it memorized and then spam on the jump button).
Decent game, good graphics -- should keep your 10 yr old entertained for a while.
So upon first playing it was fun, and fast paced, after a few levels you find the controls are a bit too loose, and only go the way they want you to, even if that is off a cliff. You press left, it goes right, or over corrects itself. Level design was horrid in most places with badly placed enemies and no prompts of when to jump, or where to go, so you race along, and fall off, or land on an enemy and die. My favorite death is attacking one of them and still getting hurt and losing all my rings. Great times, great times. If you are looking to have fun for about an hour or two, get this, otherwise just move along, this game has great graphics, and sense of speed, but not much else.
