Those who have played the classic Sonic games in the 90s will have a bit of a trip down memory lane playing this one. The core gameplay is virtually the same (i.e. zones each w/2 acts, bonus stages, and boss battles). New additions include: unlockable missions, time attack mode, boss races, new moves, and alternating playable characters (specifically original Sonic and future Sonic). The graphics are pretty good and the game utilizes the 3DS features fairly well. The game is rather short but the ranking system for each completed stage and unlockable side missions somewhat compensates for it by adding some replay value. Overall, the game is solid rental and pretty enjoyable for Sonic fans.

So I was one of those kids that had the NES and the Super Nintendo, but I never owned a SEGA system, which resulted in me never playing anything in the Sonic franchise.
Well, for a guy like me this is a pretty good buy! First off I was sort of baffled at reviews calling this game easy - as if the reviewers had not gone very far into the game themselves to find out it does carry the classic Sonic difficulty. I finally tried the original games on an emulator and this one pretty much follows the trend... a hard and pleasantly frustrating game that calls upon your gamer reflexes and focus.
Buy the console version. This one is just a worst version. Unlike Sonic Colors DS, which is good on it's own. Of course, it's still very good. The differing levels are enjoyable, but not worth buying another game. That's why I only rented it.
