Advantages: Some well-laid out levels
Disadvantages: Horrible controls, plays terribly
Wow, what a mess. After a hugely disappointing Sonic Heroes and a laughably bad Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Team managed to make it three flops in a row.
Ashamedly named after the classic original Sonic title from 1991, Sonic the Hedgehog introduces more useless characters to the series, the main one being another hedgehog called Silver who has telekinetic abilities, hmm...
The game engine along with its controls are quite possibly the worst ever seen in a video game of the stature of the Sonic franchise. The controls are horrendous, while slowdown is a regular annoyance. Glitches are almost as common as rings, meaning level progression is horribly halted through no fault of your own. Frequent loading times lasting around 20 seconds also help to get your blood boiling, especially when back-to-back when completing pointless town missions in a hub world serving as much purpose as notes pages in game instruction manuals.
The great shame in this game though is that there is a half-decent title in there somewhere. The level design, length, range and difficulty - had they been in well-made game could have put this right up there with the best Sonic games.
Only the very patient, very forgiving Sonic devotees should go anywhere near this unfortunately.
And this is coming from a huge Sonic fan.
Summary: Such a sloppy title and an unbelievable diservice to what was once a great game series
