Most of the Sonic games I've played are very great games, but this was BEYOND EPIC!

Good parts:
1.) Most of the music,
2.) The controls,
3.) The third act of every stage,
4.) Customizing a Sonic Fan Card,
5.) Unlocking songs for past Sonic games,
6.) The graphics, and
7.) (This was the best part) The boss battles.
I greatly enjoyed beating the bosses in this game, especially the second and fifth.

Bad parts:
1.) Some of the music,
2.) The difficulty of most of the stages,
3.) Most of the missions (because they are a bore), and
4.) The pure difficulty of the 4th boss (If you've beaten Sonic Adventure 2 (original for Dreamcast or Battle for Gamecube) then you'll know what difficult bosses are, but trust me this is beyond hard) and of course
5.) The end credits (They are always so long and boring and we always have to go through them).

Mostly, this game is a lot of fun. If you own a Nintendo 3DS, you NEED this game.

This review I write having only played the 3DS game, though knowing that consoles and PC version are superior in some aspects.

Plot: Ok, I'm not going to get too strict on this one as the plot is just there to justify the running of two different Sonics through nostalgic levels. However, I believe the storytelling could have been more interesting having two screens or even making better use of the 3D this system is capable of.

Graphics: Ok, this is where the game shines. The 3D feels right with both Sonics, even though Classic Sonic levels are only played in old fashioned 2D. Villains and scenarios from classic levels have been greatly recreated in 3D and the artwork prizes for each mission are very well presented in a sort of memorabilia gallery.

Sound: Alright, music is catchy. Voiceover is as good as Sonic games are used too. Sound effects fit well. Boss fights however I feel needed something more memorable. Remember Sonic Adventure songs? That would've made my day.

Gameplay: Well, as always the gameplay is enjoyable yet it suffers from small details. Personally, I felt that Classic Sonic was a bit downplayed here. His levels somehow feel more difficult; perhaps, is because Modern Sonic is given so many moves. The boss levels also felt a little bit disappointing. Again, Modern Sonic bosses were more interesting. Finally, the Special Stages were again a slap in the face to Classic Sonic. I understand, Modern Sonic is the only one allowed to boost, but it could've added up to the experience if you could choose which Sonic to use and give Classic Sonic something different like boost rings or a hoverboard (thus getting the chance to include the Sonic Riders in the game too).

The game is really good, but again as many of Sonic's last games it doesn't make it to the top. The high score is because the game does a really good work putting several levels of Sonic history together for an enjoyable experience. Now give me the next Sonic Rush 3D!
