Sonic games

The ones I played, ranked
People who added this item 406 Average listal rating (285 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Clearly the best, with expansive levels, elemental shields, more differences between the characters and much more.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 370 Average listal rating (259 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic & Knuckles - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Good levels, although it seems shorter than its counterpart Sonic 3. It's very similar, but adds Knuckles as a playable character. Sonic 3 & Knuckles really it's better than them separated, though.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 496 Average listal rating (611 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
This is definitely something special and unique. It also does challenge right, where all the sequels are a bit too easy.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 476 Average listal rating (476 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Although it's good, I don't think it's as special as the ones above. Compared to the first, it added more variety (there are more stages, with only two acts each), the spindash and Super Sonic as an unlockable.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 65 Average listal rating (53 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Mania - PC Games
Very good and surprising and probably as good as Sonic 2. What it brought to the franchise is the drop-dash.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 312 Average listal rating (203 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Adventure - Sega Dreamcast
It's a good game, but not great. The Adventure Fields are a bad idea and the excessive automation kinda started here. But at least it's full 3D without 2D parts. Best levels: Lost World, Red Mountain.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 115 Average listal rating (72 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Heroes - PlayStation 2
A good game. I like the 3-character swap system. But Casino and Bingo levels ruin this, they're so bad. Best levels: Hang Castle, Lost Jungle, Power Plant, Egg Fleet.
People who added this item 119 Average listal rating (82 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Generations - PlayStation 3
A good game, but in an era where the games were even more automated (the boost formula). Generations is the best game in the boost formula. It's definitely the boost game with the most platforming, it even has platforming in 3D parts. Best levels: (the modern versions of:) Sky Sanctuary, Seaside Hill, Crisis City, Planet Wisp.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 151 Average listal rating (99 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Colors - Nintendo Wii
You only run in 3D and you only platform in 2D. It's more of a 2D game, but it's a good game. And unlike Generations, the levels are all new; and it doesn't pad the game with something other than good old Sonic, unlike many other 3D games. Also, the wisp powers are cool. Exception: Asteroid Coaster Act 1 - has 3D platforming.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 23 Average listal rating (17 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
A good follow-up to a mess. This one has great graphics and good gameplay and physics. It brought Tails back and special partnering moves. The levels are too derivative of the classics, but there are some neat gimmicks. And the homing attack and its annoying reticule should never feature in 2D Sonic games!

Sonic Adventure 2 - Sega Dreamcast
I like Sonic's levels, although none of them is as good as those on the first Adventure and the only good level is Crazy Gadget. I hate that we're forced to play with the other characters and their unwanted gameplay styles.
People who added this item 72 Average listal rating (49 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Unleashed - PlayStation 3
EXTREMELY automated in the day levels (except Dragon Road) and boring God of War clone at night.

Sonic Advance 3 - Game Boy Advance
This third game is based on customizable combinations of two characters where the second character changes the parameters of the first one's moves and gives it a specific special move. Though physics seem to be a bit worse than the first game. Sonic loses speed too easily and gets out of ball mode too easily.
People who added this item 167 Average listal rating (116 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Advance - Game Boy Advance
DIMPS 2D handheld Sonic games are sort of neat, but they're also in parts filled with unfair obstacles, DIMPS's level-designs are not up to the classics standards. Neither is their art style. How they use the side-characters is nice, though. And the physics are on point. This first one is certainly the most similar to the classics. It's also boring.
People who added this item 128 Average listal rating (92 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic 3D Blast - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
It's not fast. But not a bad game. The Director's Cut version released by Gamehut seems better.
People who added this item 134 Average listal rating (103 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog CD - Sega Mega cd
This has bad level design. It also features a nice time-travel system that's ruined by the bad level design.
Paulo Júnior's rating:
People who added this item 30 Average listal rating (18 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
Totally exclusive to the Game Gear, this is the best of the 8-bit Sonic games.
People who added this item 127 Average listal rating (99 ratings) 4 IMDB Rating 0
This had a lot of potential, the concept was awesome, but the execution was extremely bad.
People who added this item 50 Average listal rating (40 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Lost World - Nintendo Wii U
This seems almost good. But way too automated and with too many gameplay styles. And the parkour system is an automated way to add something that should be physics-based. Sonic didn't need a system to parkour, it should happen automatically when he's too fast. I kinda like the idea, though.
People who added this item 35 Average listal rating (25 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Chaos - Game Gear
A very serviceable 8-bit Sonic game.
People who added this item 31 Average listal rating (17 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Sega Master System
SegaSonic the Hedgehog - Arcade
People who added this item 16 Average listal rating (9 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog: Pocket Adventure - Neo-Geo Pocket Color
People who added this item 26 Average listal rating (15 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I - PlayStation Network
Homing attack shouldn't feature in 2D Sonic games. Graphics are bad. Levels are too derivative of the classics. Physics are AWFUL.
People who added this item 58 Average listal rating (38 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Generations - Nintendo 3DS

Sonic Colors - Nintendo DS
People who added this item 7 Average listal rating (5 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice - Nintendo 3DS
Certainly the best of the Boom games.
People who added this item 54 Average listal rating (32 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic the Hedgehog - Sega Master System
People who added this item 129 Average listal rating (81 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Advance 2 - Game Boy Advance
DIMPS's level design is too automated in most games, but this practically plays itself. The excess of speed is too repetitive and simplistic. This game has a sort of boost mode you enter when you maintain speed and it's a great idea, much better than the actual boost of later games.
People who added this item 27 Average listal rating (24 ratings) 3.4 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric - Nintendo Wii U

Sonic Rivals 2 - Sony PSP

Sonic Rivals - PlayStation Portable
The Rivals games are about racing against another character to the end of the stages.
People who added this item 93 Average listal rating (66 ratings) 4.3 IMDB Rating 0
An on-rails Sonic game with an arthurian legends theme.

An on-rails Sonic game with arabian knights theme.

Sonic Rush Adventure - Nintendo DS
People who added this item 210 Average listal rating (121 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Rush - Nintendo DS
DIMPS added homing attack and boost to the 2D games. I hate it.
People who added this item 14 Average listal rating (12 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Forces: Bonus Edition - PlayStation 4
This seems to be the very worst of the boost games, with an EXTREMELY automated gameplay and very bland, simple level design.
People who added this item 40 Average listal rating (31 ratings) 2.6 IMDB Rating 0
Sonic Labyrinth - Game Gear
