The Top Ten

The story is implemented well and there is more depth to the levels and bosses.

The picture says the mobile phone versions, it should say the Sega Mega Drive versions!

Best Sonic game ever, especially the Mega Drive version.

Probably the best on this list

My favorite 2D Sonic the Hedgehog Video game! Unless of course you count Sonic Colors, which has 2D Segments of curse! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Sonic Mania

Sonic mania is one of the best I love it!

This game is very underrated. I love this game no matter what, and Amy Rose did not use to be such a prat at that time.

I believe Amy Rose to be strong in this game, but alas, she is being quite a coward. Anyways, the story is good. Sonic the Hedgehog is being brave (yet very cute as Classic Sonic is much better than Modern Sonic).

MUSIC: 10/10.
Pastiche was the music group who sang the US version of these cutscenes' songs. They are such great singers and wealthy students of Michael Jackson, the grand composer of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Also, the level music is excellent and has no flaw. It's very funky and inspirable.

GRAPHICS: 10/10.
These graphics is that excellent SEGA Genesis graphics simile. They bring me great memories of nostalgic places such as the Mall of America. It deserves to be top 1 on the "Top 10 Greatest Sonic the Hedgehog Games". The level designs are very nice and they look much like heaven.

CONTROLS: ...more

The time travel mechanics are better than you would expect.

You can time travel. Why is that so good? Because you can go to the past or the future. Why is that so good? Because you can go to the past and destroy badnik transporters. Why is that so good? Because then you can go to the future, and see what you've created (Play this game, do as I said, and you'll see what I'm talking about; you won't be dissapointed).

This is not considered a classic Sonic game even though it was released in the 1990s (late 90s to be more specific).
