The Black Panel writes: It has been 20 years since SEGA’s mascot first graced the Mega Drive in Sonic the Hedgehog. Since then, it has not been all good news, but finally, after some reimagining, the series is back to win your heart and controller. You begin the game in the guise of the modern (sleek) version of Sonic and your birthday in the park is interrupted by a strange alien mass that draws all of your friends into a vortex. If that isn’t bad enough, the votex also captures your younger (stockier) self. It’s up to you (as both modern and classic Sonic) to beat each level and free your friends.
