Retro Sonic is absolutely stunning. It does a very good job of emulating the Genesis physics and graphics.

OK, I don't want to hear anyone bitch about how this movie is "raping their childhood" unless they are 50 years old. The Chipmunks TV show we all grew up with in the 80s was ALREADY an obnoxious "hip" bastardization of an older cartoon. If this movie is rape then it is raping a rapist. AND WHO DOES...

One thing they teach me at Game school is that a character's setting must match the characters design, well Sonic has lost his setting. its weird because in the flagship titles we are getting realistic crap while on handhelds we get the classical feel. I cant wait to see what the heck is Sonic rush...

Yes, mostly because they took out the item inventory system that helped you a lot in the original.

Argghh... no wonder Nintendo changed the name

So Yoshi's Island 2 .... sorry, Yoshi's Island DS came out last week and I've pretty much beaten the game now save for getting 100% on all the levels. Artoon didn't do a bad job with this to be honest. They managed to get the control down rather well, and the level design is fairly unlinear, with ma...

The reason for the crappy framerate was they couldn't get it optimized in time for the holiday season. They really should of utilized the expansion pack for it.

Also, since it's been discussed in this topic I'll add I can't stand Sonic CD's level design. I've only played through it a grand total of once (with the Japanese soundtrack) but I didn't enjoy a single second. Some levels, like wacky workbench or whatever, just seem horribly laid out and the game ...

The only collection I'm looking forward to now is Metal Slug Anthology, particularly because it's the first time the series has had one.

Releasing those titles individually on GBA however is stupid and a waste of time.

This game shines in it's reply value. You won't be impressed if you played just to get to the final castle, but you'll have a great time trying to get all the secrets and coins. It's no SMB3 or SMW, but it's definently no Sonic Advance either. I recall an interview where Nintendo said they intended ...

Personally, I think Nintendo made a good decision going back to the original mario game for the basic game mechanics, then going through each title in the series and adding their gimmicks into the gameplay. It's something I wish Sega would do with their Sonic titles. That said, I'll be buying this a...
