All of those old Sonic tunes are still delightful earworms, while the sound effects will elicit immediate nostalgia. It's a shame that Sonic 3 is missing half of its original music, though.
Origins' Anniversary Editions breathe new life into Sonic's 2D Mega Drive/Genesis outings, with fullscreen presentation at up to 4K resolution. The animated cutscenes are great, too.
There's no faulting how well Sonic the Hedgehog and its sequels still play, and in Sonic Origins, it's all remarkably slick. The addition of the drop dash from Sonic Mania is a nice touch.
Anniversary and Classic Editions, Boss Rush, Missions, unlockable Mirror Mode, and the Museum make for a neat package, but the lack of any meaningful extras or features leave this feeling like a rudimentary offering.
A strong list that makes you want to poke around Sonic Origins' various modes, unlock some of its Museum content, and tackle its Missions. Consider all of the bases duly covered.
