Sonic The Hedgehog
Yes, it’s Sonic’s original Mega Drive outing again, which likely feels overfamiliar to some of you. However, M2 has done a typically fantastic job with the emulation in this version, and has included Sonic 2’s spin dash and the new drop dash from Sonic Mania, as well as a new ‘Ring Keep’ mode for novices. You can select regional variants and even the Mega Play arcade version, a challenging variant which has stricter time limits and no extra lives.
The easy and normal modes found in Sonic Jam are nowhere to be seen, and neither is the spike damage toggle from Sonic Mega Collection nor the speed cap options of the mobile version. So while the new features are great, it’s not a definitive version.
