For those of you who have never played a Sonic the Hedgehog game, it is a game where you play a Sonic, the super speeding hedgehog out to save his animal friends from Dr. Robotnic. The thing that makes Sonic so special is the landscapes, which are full of loops, hills, ramps and so on. You must collect golden rings for energy, and when you get hit, the rings shower out from Sonic, forcing him to collect more. For those of you who know about the Sonic games, this game goes back to the old Sega Genesis side scrolling adventure types, only with the Game Boy Advance this makes for better, more detailed graphics, more incredible landscapes for Sonic to zip around and four playable characters (Sonic, Knuckles, Tails and Amy). There are six “zones,” with two “acts” and at the end of each zone is Dr. Robotnic in a different killing machine each time, such as a giant swinging hammer, a giant pogo, a floating machine that makes spikes fall from the ceiling and so on. The graphics in this game are great, and there are simple controls, A to jump, B to roll, down + A to do a super sonic speed-ball. The unfortunate part of the game is if you have played the Sonic games on Sega Genesis, you can beat this game in a day. There is even a neat mini game you can play, which is like a pocket pet, where you feed it and raise it all in one screen, teach it to swim and fly and play games with it.
