The Final Word game review
The best action/platform game of all time has finally arrived, and is now playing on the Sega CD. This disc rewrites the rules and sets new standards for this genre. Sonic CD takes you on a journey like none other before or since. Dr. Robotnik is back again and now Sonic must travel back in time to undo his evil and set the future straight. In each stage, what you do in the past will change the way the future appears. Make a good future on every stage and collect all the time stones in the 3-D bonus levels (awesome), and play a second game with better graphics and higher difficulty! Words cannot describe this one... you just gotta play it. Gorgeous visuals, exemplary gameplay and music so wild a cartridge could only dream about it make Sonic CD the game agaist which all others will be judged. This is what CD is all about kids.
