When “Sonic the Hedgehog” burst onto the Sega Genesis console in 1991, he was a very impressive little guy. He ran incredibly fast, as did the game he starred in – it was especially impressive compared to pretty much anything else out there.

Sonic hasn’t always been the best though, in fact for the past years it’s been pretty bad. But with “Sonic Mania,” that long losing streak is finally broken. Not only is “Sonic Mania” a good Sonic game, it’s a good game period. With stunning graphics for a classic platformer and ingenious level design, it’s the sonic game everyone’s been asking for.

“Sonic Mania” feels greatly modern in how it plays; it’s delightfully nostalgic in how it looks and sounds. “Sonic Mania” is the Sonic game that Sega’s been trying to make for over 20 years, and it’s the first Sonic game I can recommend to anyone who likes games. You don’t need to be a Sonic devotee, or a superfan, – you just need to be someone interested in playing good games. Something Sonic Mania excels in being.
