Does this game still hold up?

I'm getting my brother a couple of DS games for Christmas, his DS has been collecting dust so I want him to play it a bit more and not feel like he wasted his money. I already got GTA Chinatown Wars for a $20 which I know is good from Jeff's review, among many others, but I also saw this game for $15. I looked it up and although it has a good score on metacritic, I believe 82, this game did come out in 2005 so maybe it didn't age well. Did anyone play this game and if so does it hold up today?

If you exclude the horrible HORRIBLE music then I would say not bad for 15 bucks. Its a pretty decent 2D sonic game, if he liked the Sonic Advance games then he'll probably like this one. But if you want the best platformers for the system then I would suggest the Kirby games.

I thought it was great. As true to old Sonic as any recent game has ever come. Has some great moments of it's own as well.

The soundtrack was amazing, actually. 
Yeah, it holds up pretty well.

If you like 2D sonic games, you'll like Sonic Rush.

It was ok.....I never finished it though....I guess it depends if he likes sonic games. I don't think its aged poorly, still holds up.

I thought people loved it when it came out. 
I don't see how a game like that could age just because of the type of game it is.
