Wired writes: "The new downloadable game for Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (reviewed) seems to make all the changes that Sonic’s fans have been clamoring for: It brings the series back to 2-D. It gets rid of Sonic’s crappy friends and makes the iconic blue critter the only playable character. Cute little birdies even pop out of enemies when they explode, just like in the good old Genesis days."
WIRED: Pretty graphics. Will make you feel 10 years old again for a few minutes.
TIRED: Terrible physics. Gameplay on autopilot. Evil traps designed to catch you off-guard.
