Igort's Sonic The Hedgehog Series Review Extravaganza
I’m a huge Sonic the Hedgehog dork. My earliest childhood memory is playing Sonic 2 on the Mega Drive in the 90’s. I’ve been with Sonic every step of the way, through the good and through the... well, through the bad.
I wanted to put my thoughts on all the Sonic games in the “main cycle” of the series down on paper so I could refer to it when I wanted. These are what I’m calling “mini-reviews” because I’ll try to be as brief as possible.
There will be SPOILERS but it’s Sonic guys, come on.
Sonic’s history can be split into three “eras:” The Genesis Era, consisting of the Mega Drive/Genesis games; The Adventure Era, consisting of Sonic’s first foray into 3D games and his beginnings as a third-party mascot; and The Boost Era, consisting of a radically different approach to how Sonic operates in 3D.
