And you can add custom music anyway, so it's not a big deal.

There’s a Sonic the Hedgehog Humble Bundle that I want to buy just for Sonic Forces and Mania. Does anyone want any of the other Sonic games in the Bundle? I already own all the rest.

Even at $1 or whatever beat the average is, the sonic games will disappoint :olol:
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Am I the only one who thinks that Sonic CD is overrated?

Nope. I’ve tried many times to play that game but just can’t stand the time mechanic.

I haven't played it much, it didn't seem anything special. People mainly seem into the intro music.

One thing about Sonic CD, MJ should have worked on the soundtrack for that game instead of Sonic 3. Since the story goes he wasn't happy with how the songs sounded due to the limitations of cartridge.

It's fun to consider that Sonic 2 and Sonic CD were developed at the same time and were essentially two takes on how to build upon Sonic 1.

Sonic CD was too focused on the hardcore community with its difficulty. It was a pretty game with great music, but like melan said, the time-travel mechanics are too complicated/esoteric for casual playthroughs. Having to hunt through three versions of each level to find those machines isn't fun at all. It only rewards people that comb over every little detail and tip-toe through levels to find the objectives. It's only a fun Sonic game once you know where everything is and can blast through the levels.

I think Sonic 2 was hard enough with its bonus stages. The requirements for the chaos emeralds were fair: Maintain 50 rings and keep an eye out for checkpoints. It rewards a player for playing well enough to not lose their rings and the objectives are along the normal paths.
