This really is one of the best examples of a platformer on the Master System and easily as good as Alex Kidd in Miracle World, if not even better. Many gamers will have been introduced to Sonic through this game before graduating on to the Mega Drive so for some it will certainly bring back good memories. For other Sonic fans who perhaps didn't even know this version existed, why not take a chance on it?
Sure it's not quite as polished as the Mega Drive version, but it's a slice of Sonic's history which should not be missed. If you are at all slightly curious you should consider this for a download. At 500 Wii points you can't really go far wrong. 4/5
