While the Sonic Advance series from the early 00’s s was possibly the closest thing that we had got to the classic games for the Sega Genesis Sonic Mania almost feels like a sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog 3. In fact, some people would probably agree that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 should have looked similar to Sonic Mania in terms of visual display. The use of 16 bit sprites and graphics was something that many people found appealing back in the 90’s and its something that retro gamers still love to see to see to this day.
While the two Sonic Adventure games were fun there were a few 3D games in the series that were well received by fans and critics alike including Sonic Colors along with others that were heavily panned such as Sonic the Hedgehog for the Xbox 360. Usually, when it comes down to 2D Sonic the Hedgehog titles there is rarely ever a bad game in the series that Sega is involved with.
