For fans of classic games and those who grew up in the Sega Genesis, this is a great solution to experience the feeling of those days. Plus, by doing this, Sonic shows newcomers and the new generation why Sonic has become such a great character. In this article, we will take a look at the game Sonic Origins examining the previous versions of this game.
Three decades after the release of “Sonic the Hedgehog” first version, we will see that gamers of the 90s who used Sega devices to play games are still attracted to games like Sonic.
This game will be a collection of Sonic Original, Sonic CD, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Knuckles games. The original version of this game will cost $40 and the Digital Deluxe version will cost $45. This amount is a bit expensive for 4 games that have been bundled together and released many times over the years. But anyway, this game is beautifully presented and many twists and modern additions were added. It will give the user a new experience with these old games.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog game, which was released with the Sega Genesis or Sega Drive in 1991, was a fun and attractive game. Diving and going through the stages of the game one after another gave you a sense of satisfaction by quickly progressing to the next stages. You can play this version of the Sonic game on your smartphone.
The Sonic CD game is probably one of the least popular versions of the Sonic game that was added to the Sega CD Genesis in 1993 as an expensive add-on. It was very superficial in terms of design and even weaker than the original version. However, the music of this game was very catchy. It will be impossible to get its rhythm out of your head. It is interesting to know that if you complete this part of the game, you may be able to play as Tails again. This possibility is unfortunately not playable in Sonic CD.
If I was going to write my personal opinion about this game I’d have to say that this version is wonderful. Sonic 2 is a game that has kept countless fans glued to their Sega Genesis for hours since its inception in 1992. The game seemed a bit boring in the parts of the game where, for example, Tails was controlled by the computer as a secondary character. Unfortunately, Tails could also get stuck on the rocks.
Sonic 3 & Knuckles
The game Sonic 3 & Knuckles captivates the user with stunning characters from the game’s first moments to the epic ending. It’s especially cool to see Sonic Snowboard at the start of the Ice Cap Zone.
Yes, we know that each of the names mentioned in the title of this article is a separate game; But Sonic decided to combine these two games in Sonic Origins. It is interesting to know that since the release of the games in 1994, the company decided to release the games together. But then it was decided to publish them separately due to time constraints, cartridge size limitations, and possibly earning more money.
In Sonic Origins, you can play all four games in story mode and connected. Enjoy the beautifully created animated scenes and go through the steps. You can collect coins in all modes. By collecting these coins, you can unlock music and art in the game and use other features. Of course, in our opinion, considering Sonic’s 31-year history, this feature seems a little ordinary.
