    Almost The Best

    Okay, so I'm going to be completely honest here. This isn't the best Sonic game to have been released, but it's right up there with the greats like Sonic 2 (Chemical Plant Zone is the best level in gaming history) and Sonic Adventure 2 (Live and Learn, anyone?).

    There is no spin-dash, the sense of speed is diminished after playing Sonic 2, and the difficulty is in my opinion far too easy, but the music is where Sonic 1 really shines. I could honestly leave the game on pause for hours.

    But seriously, if you like the series then the gameplay is phenomenal even though it was hugely surpassed by the second and third outings. If you don't own this, you're truly missing out.
