Top 10 Greatest Sonic The Hedgehog Games

The best from everyones favorite anthromorphic speedy blue rodent!

The Top Ten

1 Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Product Image

This is the single best Sonic the Hedgehog game ever, without a doubt. It expanded on its predecessor's levels by replacing tough puzzles with absolutely thrilling sections.

EMERALD HILL - Short, but sweet, and isn't the Green Hill rip-off people make it out to be.
CHEMICAL PLANT - I was stuck on Act 2 for ages! Its music is addictive and you should try out the remake of this zone in Sonic Generations!
AQUATIC RUIN - If you want a good run in this zone, then AVOID THE WATER! Just saying.
CASINO NIGHT - Fun, inventive, and paved the way for all future casino-like Sonic levels. (Well, OK, maybe Spring Yard did that in Sonic 1, but whatever. )
HILL TOP - Not the best Sonic zone ever, but I remember that rising lava section!
MYSTIC CAVES - Loads of traps, so beware! I liked playing 2 Player Mode with this zone!
OIL OCEAN - Really gets across that foreign feel, and sometimes I would just keep jumping across the oil!
METROPOLIS - A mega three-act zone, this is a ...more

I remember my Dad picking me up from school in his army truck and telling me he had a suprise for me and my stepbrothers and sister and that we had to share turns.
Instantly I knew what it was and lo and behold it was Sonic 2.
This game holds a special place in my heart. It reminds me of happier times but the game alone is worthy in a top 10 greatest games.

Sonic looks better, plays faster finally ( on Pal ) and the introduction of Tails was the icing on the cake.
The design is fantastic and worlds look amazing. And that was before we discovered the special stages... WOW!
All topped off with incredible music and sound effects.
In fact typing this has made me realise games like this exist, and perhaps I should stop playing first person shooters and crime games.

Today and can play it and enjoy it but my age makes me not as crazy for it.
So I have passed it on to my Daughter who absolutely adores Sonic and she too will have the memories and joy I had.

My first video game was a SEGA Genesis, and the game that was played the most was Sonic 2. Very nice level design, fun Robotnik battles, ADDICTIVE music, and incredible special stages. The introduction of Super Sonic helps your cause, plus it introduced Miles "Tails" Prower, my favorite Sonic character, into the games. Really set the bar for how to make a memorable Sonic game.

It could have been better...
But still, it's the best game in they have to offer us seeing that it has good levels, good gameplay and "kinda" good boss fights.
Also, Tails is in it... that's good right.

2 Sonic Generations Sonic Generations Product Image

THIS IS FOR THE CONSOLE VERSIONS: I personally think that Sonic Generations is the best game ever. My comment will be kind of long, but by the time I am through you will understand why I think this.

Sonic Generations is the best game simply because it is for multiple generations of Sonic the Hedgehog lovers as the title implies. The inclusion of Classic Sonic was magnificent as he felt just like his Genesis self. His levels felt more "classic" than any game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. The physics were amazing and the graphics were stunning. Modern Sonic was just as amazing, and to be biased, my favorite version. I love boosting through the levels and the platforming of each level.

SEGA did a really good job of making this game a platformer. I truly see this as platforming to the max while keeping the speed aspect of the game. While there are some levels that aren't too reminiscent of the game that they were in, they maintained the playability. My personal favorites ...more

Generations is good, but saying it's the best game ever is being way generous, in my opinion. I think Sonic 2, and 3 and Knuckles are way better games. - SonicFan4Life

Traveling through time, all the best Sonic games made into 3D and 2D, a massive trophy room, the level of nostalgia is OVER 9000! I love this game, from the level design to the re-playability, its pure epicness. Get it now, or my lazer sharks will find you. It's got mechanics both old and new. Even if you haven't picked up a controller for years, this game will convince you otherwise. Perfect difficulty ramp, amazing graphics, and Green Hill Zone, Act 1, is redone perfectly on the 3DS version.

All I have to say is sonic 20th anniversary, AND THERE IS 2 SONICS. How awesome is that? And it makes bad sonic games look epic due to remastering

I remember wanting to play this game as a kid with my brother because the two Sonics told me the game was gonna be multiplayer. And then I found out it was one player and was pretty disappointed. Over time I grew less interested in the game. Then, I was 14 or 15 years old, and I heard a lot of good things about it. I decided to try it out, but I didn't have the consoles it was on. Eventually, I was at a friend's house, and he had "Sonic Generations". I tried it out, and I spent a third of the night playing it. Thinking about how much I enjoyed it, I'm pretty sure it's my favorite game of all time, and definitely my favorite Sonic game.

3 Sonic Adventure 2 Sonic Adventure 2 Product Image

best story and 6 playable characters and 180 emblems and lots of unlocks. Chao garden very good.

This game is amazing. It beats Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Generations by far. The Hero and Dark Story is an amazing idea. I played Hero Story first when I got the game, but in the game's story the Dark Story comes first. Speaking of the story, the story in this game is amazing. I mean, in Sonic Adventure it was just a mutated Chao is transforming into a super Chaos creature. In this game, a hedgehog named Shadow who is claimed to be the ultimate life form breaks free from a base on Earth and teams up with Dr. Robotnick (no I am not calling him Eggman) and a secret government spy named Rouge to collect the seven Chaos Emeralds to activate the Esclipse Canon and shoot a giant laser at Earth and destroying everyone on this. When the military find out about this hedgehog he mistakes it with Sonic. I am one of the few people who don't think it's a stupid mistake to make. The footage of Shadow was shaky and there hasn't been another 3'7 hedgehog looking for 7 magical gems ever, in San ...more

The story, the voices, the music, and most especially the gameplay... Greatest Sonic Game ever.

Don't listen to him! Sonic Adventure 2 is awesome! HE owes YOU an apology!

Best story best gameplay and most importaly one of the best characters ever made in any sonic game

4 Sonic Adventure Sonic Adventure Product Image

Sonic Adventure is the best game of all time. Anyone who refuses to look beyond the unavoidable camera glitches and bad voice acting is a fool. This game contains excellent music, a great story, CHAO, awesome level design, and the soul of SEGA.

It's no where near the best game of all time, but it's still a great game nonetheless.

Dude who says "I'd prefer Mario (insert Sonic title here) more"

SHUT UP. Mario is known to have many great games (which are now just remakes of the original games)

Complain about these on 4CHAN.

One of the most ambitious games of all time, there's this sense of pure passion surrounding this game. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and E-102 are all really fun and well-realized. The story is interesting even if the cut-scenes are a bit dated. It's not perfect, but this game has great energy.

This has the best story in sonic in my opinion, this game was my childhood and gave me the nostalgia that made me want to be a little kid again, I love this game!

5 Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Product Image

This game is definitely my favorite game of all time. It's the roots of the series and on whole other level than the first two. Let me give a quick review of this masterpiece. First of the world you travel through in this installment is just massive and their is much to be discovered. The level of multiple routes and secret areas is astounding. Just think even today I'm finding secret rooms with extra lives hidden away. The variety in the levels have also improved. The basic green level than lit on fire. A ancient garden that crumbles before you. A desert that ghosts terrorize. The floating Death Egg also returns as the epic final zone unless you count Doomsday which I will get to later. As I said the levels are varied and now more than ever with I think 14 or 15 in total. Next I'll talk about characters and abilities they each possess. Sonic once again back with the spin dash and now has the insta shield which is actually very useful plus fun. Tails also can use the spin dash like in ...more

To me, the best sonic game of all time. Sonic 3 introduces the Elemental Shields. With one you are immune to fire and lava, and you can fire yourself rapidly in whatever direction you wish, as long as its left or right. With another you can't drown underwater, and you can slam yourself onto enemies. and with a final shield, you can double jump, and it acts like a ring magnet, taking any rings near you, into you. It also provides the most zones for any sonic game, and in my opinion the best level designs. Just look at how you start Ice Cap Zone! The music is also very good, and its rumored Michael Jackson himself helped compose some of the songs. Another aspect, is introducing the character Knuckles. he can glide, and climb walls! He is very fun to play as, and he can explore his own areas of the many stages. As a final note, this game was so huge at the time, it couldn't fit on a single genesis cart! They had to take half of the game out, and name it Sonic and Knuckles. This is my ...more

Easily the best Sonic game of all time. The level designs, the characters (Just the hedgehog, the fox, the echidna and the mad scientist. None of the crocodile, the chameleon or the rabbit? ). The best music of all time. Everything was perfect in it and everything.

The bonus level was excellent also, Blue spheres was good also. Plus the verses mode was so much better than in Sonic 2. Super Sonic was much better also and is still one of the best games to unlock him.

Give this game the title it deserves as closer to the top. If you've never played it, I suggest downloading a rom and trying it. I promise you'll like it.

This game is one of the few games that I don't have any problems with at all. It combines the exploration and platforming of sonic cd with the speed and control of sonic 2. It has amazing visuals fort the sega genesis. Three characters to play. Transformations for every character. Well hidden special rings. Bosses at the end of every stage. An epic showdown with robotnick in space. And most importantly, a great soundtrack made by Michael Jackson. I have played this game over and over and I still don't get bored of it. It's simply the peak of the sonic the hedgehog series and is yuji naka's finest work.

6 Sonic Heroes Sonic Heroes Product Image

This game was... Fun for the most part. I mean, Sonic Heroes was meant for little kids, but I know adults whom enjoy the game vastly. But, aspects of the game are boring or slow. Such as with Team Chaotix, in the Haunted Mansion, they have to locate the same object in the second part of the stage which could take over 9 minutes if you aren't a person for exploration. The tutorial level with Team Rose was just a waste of time. But, I'm not one of those people who just find the faults with the game. The graphics weren't bad for a 2005 GameCube game as well as PS2. The gameplay was a little "spotty' at times but for the most part was done well. The music... THE MUSIC... Was just amazing! The one song I constantly listen to in the game is "What I'm made of". Overall, I think Sega did an amazing job with this game. Let's just hope we don't see another Shadow the hedgehog game see the light of day... Unless the play testers or Sega make it so much better. Sega... You all have ...more

By the way, it's gonna be a long one, so sit tight...

Sonic Heroes can be summed up with one word: innovative. This game gives us so much to work with, starting off with the story. I found myself having to summarize the plot, and even that took a while to explain (and yet some people think it's too dumbed-down... please.). My favorite part? Definitely the Metal Sonic twist, along with the question of whether or not the Shadow that was in Team Dark was a clone or the real one (however, Rouge does mention that "Shadow is a robot," along with Omega saying "the original must exist somewhere," making more of a compelling story line). Overall, the story is probably one of the best "simple" stories of Sonic games (some may say that the ending part of everyone teaming up to stop the plot twist villain was overdone and migrated from SA2, however this is only the 2nd time they've used this ending battle, and the part used in Sonic '06 made it overused, for ...more

If you like the gameplay, why should it be at the bottom of the list? - DCfnaf

Sonic had a solid jump to 3d with sonic adventure 1 and 2. Heros was released for the gamecube in 2003 and later the ps2 and xbox. It continued the story of the adventure games. The graphics are a lot better and the levels are well designed. The whole trio gimmick worked well and kept things interesting. My favorite were team sonic and team dark. The metal sonic boss fight at the end was epic. Also. The soundtrack. Enough said.

The game was great. The storyline was good, and exciting.
The gameplay was very good (Except some missions with, team Chaotix)
The levels was great, with a good soundtrack ( The best one is Seaside hill, in my opinion.
The dialog was really good, and it was always good to hear some comments from the characters while playing.
The game is really great.

7 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Product Image

The original, not the best, but my favourite. It was My first Sonic game and like many I was instantly hooked. The music, stages and bosses were all of the best quality. The exploration, the platforming and the speed. This game had it all and was only a sign of the brilliance to come.

One of the best Sonic games I've ever played. Despite some glitches, it's introduction to Silver the Hedgehog and option to play him with his psychokinetic ability as well as Shadow the Hedgehog and everyone else was great!

The greatest game of the classic series by far.
Green Hill: Absolutely brilliant level design that Emerald Hill tried and failed to replicate.
Marble: Designed as the antithesis of Green Hill, shows you another take on Sonic gameplay.
Spring Yard: Eh, just ok. Like Casino Night and Marble cobbled together.
Labyrinth: WHY DOES THIS ZONE GET SO MUCH HATE?!? A fantastic zone, Labyrinth is basically Marble Zone, but underwater. A good zone.
Star Light: A nice lull after Labyrinth, Star Light is a great zone. Because it is only inspired by Green Hill, it fares a lot better than the ill-fated copies living in Green Hill's shadow.
Scrap Brain: Almost as good as Green Hill. Provides a fun and FAIR (*cough cough Metropolis Zone*) challenge and is quite a fun zone.
Sonic 2: A decent game, but all the zones blend together and the decision to go from 3 acts to 2 was a horrible idea. The spin dash is an overrated move and some zones like Oil Ocean and Metropolis were just ...more

A classic! Definitely the best Genesis game. How the heck can the crappy 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog be ahead of one of the greatest 2D platforming games of all time?!?!? It makes no sense

8 Sonic CD Sonic CD Product Image

The best Sonic game in my opinion. It has the best soundtrack of any Sonic video game and it's graphics are superb. It has original boss battles, Metal Sonic included, and a nice opening.

In fact, the only thing I hate in this game is the sound test. WHY DID SEGA MADE THE SOUND TEST IN THE FIRST PLACE!?

Both soundtracks are good, extremely good level design, good graphics and music EPIC SPECIAL STAGES really really good story METAL SONIC IS awesome! And those robot making things you have to destroy in the past UHH! THEY ARE ANNOYING but that's what made this game good not to mention the really cool time travel gimmick, going to the bad future would either be REALLY SCARY OR REALLY awesome! Plus those hidden pictures (what were they thinking) and the difficulty is well... Fair unless your going for the good ending then its hard OH! AND I FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART the EPIC animated intro and endings they are so awesome! ! TOOT TOOT SONIC WARRIOR CONQUER SPACE AND TIME TOOT TOOT SONIC WARRIOR YOU CAN EVEN FLY (this is the epic part) NOTHING CAN SURVIVE THE WILL TO STAY ALIVE (oh boy! ) CAUSE IF YOU TRY (ah! ) YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! (YES YES YES YES! ! ) YES YES YES YES! THAT SONG NEVER GETS OLD ITS SO EPICLY EPIC! ! ! ! If you haven't played this game you should go play it now the ...more

You must love this game :3 I hate it just kidding this game is creative in every single way

Better than Sonic 1, it improved on it's predecessor in almost every way. It's just unfortunate that the game that ended up being called "Sonic 2" ended up being one of the best games ever made.

Best level design best gimmick (time travel) most awesome soundtrack ever exploration-based gameplay that retains speed and charm of the numbered titles = greatest Sonic game. Ever.

9 Sonic Colors Sonic Colors Product Image

I think this was the end point of making sonic great again, and generations and lost world came out just after, then it got confused again. But that's not the point. The point is that this is my favorite sonic game, yes unleashed seems to have helped sonic, but this is what made it proper. I like the gameplay obviously, the wisps were a nice addition, although I feel like they could have done a little more with the laser wisp. I also like the game, it's fast in the 2 sections, and faster in the 3d sections. I personally like the 3d sections a little more, but both were nice. I feel that this games areas are also pretty neat, my favorite is probably asteroid coaster. Also the music in this game was great as well, although reach for the stars is one of the weaker main lyrical themes. I also like the voice of sonic compared to the other previous voice actors in previous games, it fits his personality better then the other games. Also it's a small thing, but this game made me laugh here ...more

A refinement of the Unleashed formula, this game has almost no sour moments.

Need I say more? This is truly Sonic's comeback game. The graphics are HD-quality. You would never suspect that a Wii had this much power but there you have it. The game also lacked the boost to win issue with Sonic Unleashed.

Sonic coolers was coolio. It had very good stages and the 2d and 3D mix was tight! Should be in top ten.

10 Sonic Unleashed Sonic Unleashed Product Image

A breath of fresh air for the franchise, the daytime levels are incredibly fun, and the Night levels aren't bad at the very least, although they could have been better

Werehog powers are really useful in some nighttime levels and the killer combo moves make sonic makes him look a character from mortal combat

I always was curious about this game, ever since Sonic Colors came out, Which I pre-ordered and liked. Colors really made me want the game as previously mentioned, so guess what was under the Christmas tree in 2011 by total surprise. SONIC UNLEASHED FOR THE XBOX 360 YEAH! (I had already played Generations, it was even better than Colors) So I gave the game a shot and it wound up being my favorite Sonic game. Everything from the amazing soundtrack, graphics, game play, story, and voice acting all added up for this to be the best Sonic game yet. I was so happy

' fast levels with Sonic and fun, action packed werehog levels! The graphics is incredible, Good voice actors and fantastic for the whole family

The Contenders

11 Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog Product Image

The real favorite is adventure 2. (Well, duh. The chao garden by itself trumps every other sonic game I've played.) This will receive my vote due to being both underrated and overhated. Mostly overhated. The only thing holding it back is all the gosh dang swearing and disgustingly bad plot. The gameplay, however is very solid. The guns were a fun addition, the only exception being limited in what weapons can be used based on the near-by enemies. Buying this game years after it came out, with all the bad reviews and complaints plaguing the Internet I expected many glitches, as well as choppy and slow gameplay, only to be surprised with a smooth, fast-paced shoot 'em up. This game deserves to be #10 at least.

Even at #12, this game is underrated. No offense, but the dark stories in games are always the most engaging and addicting ones. This goes for all the dark sonic games. And who cares if you don't need guns to play. That's not the point, the point was that the use of guns fit shadows style. Just getting a gun and shooting it at all was fun. I'm pretty sure everyone knows that if Sonic can go through 50 different games without using a gun, then chances are that Shadow can, too. I'm also Perry sure that people who say this are hypocritical and still use guns anyway because it's fun shooting stuff.

Not my favourite game (Although it does star my favourite character, another reason to get my vote), but this game is far too underrated and deserves more votes. Guns, vehicles and a tad swearing is no real reason to hate this game. The sonic series always had guns, G.U.N has these all the time and plus, they're optional. Same for vehicles. So what if he swears? Grow up. If you can't handle someone even saying "Damn" and "Hell", then I'm sorry but I can't take you seriously. This game has a really deep story telling. Shadow is a confused and misunderstood hedgehogs, trying to get answers to his past. He is, however, desperate because of how long he's been waiting for answers to get recieved and goes to extreme lengths to achieve it. The player will then choose his path. Will he end up believing that he is an android? Will he get his revenge on the humans for what they did to him and Maria? Will he defeat Black Doom and show regret for all his past actions? Or will he put the past ...more

I don't think this game is the best sonic game, but it definitely gets way more hate than it deserves. I see people complain about the guns just being in the game, but it drives me crazy when people hate this game for what it isn't: a sonic game. Sure, the game has flaws like odd controls, but most of the hate is towards reasons that make the game for older audiences. But it's cool to see that many people are starting to like this game for what it is.

12 Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Product Image

This is like my favorite game cube game! I cannot say that it's better than the original but I can say its AWESOME! I highly recommend this game.

One of my most favorite games of all time. This game was genius, I wish Sega can make a comeback game after this one. Sonic is another flawless game, in my opinion Sega has lost their touch after those games... Sonic Generation was good

Better than its Dreamcast version, especially the Japanese version.

While it's certainly superior to it's DC counterpart, they are similar enough that I question the need to include on this list at all.

13 Sonic The Hedgehog 3 Sonic The Hedgehog 3 Product Image

How is this behind Shadow the Hedgehog?! This is the best video game EVER MADE!

This game was far ahead of its time. It made the best of the Genesis system. The graphics, the music, the gameplay, and especially the storyline, which was given much more focus this time around. Plus the special stages were good too (MUCH better than Sonic 2's). There are also different music tracks in each act, and each act has a transition according to the plot. Additionally, there is a boss in each act! And of course, we are introduced to Knuckles, who can PUNCH SONIC OUT OF HIS SUPER FORM!

This game featured excellent level design, music composed by Michael ' JACKSON, excellent graphics for its time, the inclusion of 3 playable characters, and overall, it's just perfect.

Sonic the hedgehog 3 should be higher on this list first of it has THE best soundtrack in any sonic game like hydrocity ice cap zone and it's the first time they introduced knuckles and sometimes the game has 3d effects that are good for 16 bit also Michael jackson himself composed the music that's cool and there is absolutely nothing and the special stages I liked them much more than sonic the hedgehog 1 and 2 and on this one you can actually save your game you couldn't do that on any other sonic game at that time

14 Sonic Mania Sonic Mania Product Image

The plus edition of Sonic Mania is my favourite Sonic game ever. It brings so much nostalgia from the original Sonic the hedgehog and it sometimes has 3d parts.

Improves on Sonic 3 and knuckles, the Sonic 4 we never got on the Sega Saturn. The only 2 flaws are: 1. Mostly reused levels
2. Lack of attention to detail with the cutscenes, but this got fixed in the DLC (on top of 2 new playable characters!)

Sonic Mania a classic game that should be number two. Classic Sonic is a boss! Modern Sonic just makes the franchise boring a bit.

It's better than the original trilogy of sonic games. Just look at those clean animations and the new zones are very creative while polishing and introducing cool mechanics to the old zones. They even remixed the music of old zones when you get to act 2! The special stages are that perfect balance between easy and hard and are also a very nice tribute to sega saturn's graphics. What amazes me the most though is the fact that sonic mania was made by the fans, for the fans. You've got people like Christian Whitehead (Remastered Sonic 1, 2, and even CD for mobile devices) and Headcannon studios who worked on this game. It's such a shame though that in the same year, this game got shat on because sonic forces released which made many people uninterested in sonic again. It makes you wonder about sonic team and their incompetence to make a proper, fun, and cool sonic game nowadays. Maybe sonic team should put a little more time, love, and effort into their projects like what had happened ...more

15 Sonic Rush Sonic Rush Product Image

Extremely underrated! I think it got a lot of hate because sonic had a bad run before this game but this was a true return to form for sonic!

Sonic Rush was my very first introduction to Sonic, and it was worth it. It is personally my favorite Sonic game of all time, despite the rest. The game mechanics are smooth and reasonable, making it fun to play. The music isn't edgy like in the newer games, but upbeat and remixed which perfectly matches the speed of the game. It's a 2d side scroller, perfect for fans of the original games. The only wish I have is for more levels, but otherwise highly recommend this game!

The boss fights were difficult in my opinion, but it gave me a sense of victory and accomplishment when I beat them, unlike Mario bosses who die when they get hit 3 to 5 times

Fave game I love the story line and playing the game and they came out with blaze

16 Sonic Advance Sonic Advance Product Image

I'll strangle Amy Rose big time for her Piko Piko Hammer!

I prefer Knuckles with the Piko-Piko Hammer anyways.

The whole Sonic Advance series is underrated. I would consider them to be just as good, if not better, than the original trilogy for the genesis. Please, vote for this game.

Sonic Advance 1 Review

Graphics: A
Soundtrack: A
Story: B
Characters: B
Gameplay: A

Sonic advance 2 Doesn't qualify.

17 Sonic & Knuckles Sonic & Knuckles Product Image

This has the right to be in the top ten as it was a continuation of Sonic 3.
Originally, this game and Sonic 3 were suppose to be combined as one to form a massive game. However, they had to split them up due to the amount of time before launch.
Some might consider this game downgraded from the last title, but I however think it was designed with the same quality.
Music was great, introduction of Knuckles as a playable character (obviously) and levels were challenging. Lock on technology allowed people to choose Knuckles as a playable character, awesome!

This is a great expansion pack for the Sonic the Hedgehog series, but the game itself, despite being another fun Sonic title, borrows some elements from Sonic 3, and doesn't feel as fresh and fun.
PROS:
-Awesome "Lock-On" technology allows you to play as Knuckles in previous Sonic titles.
-Inviting, colorful graphics.
-Lots of decent gameplay to be had.
-Knuckles has awesome gliding and climbing powers.
-Even more replay value than previous Sonic titles due to massive features.
CONS:
-Music isn't in the same league as the first three Sonic titles.
-Some annoying puzzles and enemies.
-Recycled bonus stage and similar look and feel to Sonic 3.
-Where's Tails?
-How come there's only one save profile?
Overall Grade: B-

This game is so underrated, even at top 17. I am a Sonic fanboy, and this game has done everything right.

This game is cool!

18 Sonic and the Black Knight Sonic and the Black Knight Product Image

I love a good game with a good plot. I enjoy reading about the Knights of the Round Table, and having Sonic characters play their roles was just fascinating. Shadow makes a great Lancelot, really.

Merlina was an impressive villain, she was doing all of this out of the ambition for her grandfather, tricking Sonic while at it. Her motivation wasn't entirely bad. She's one of the only villains we have in the franchise who gets redeemed rightfully.

Caliburn (Sonic's sword) was a lovely character. I liked how he was basically a talking weapon and acted as Sonic's companion. It's funny to think he kind of replaced Tails (the poor fox was only a blacksmith).

A lot of my favorite scenes in the whole series are mostly comprised from this game:
1 --- Sonic falling flat on his face, only to humorously recover and grab all of his chilli dogs before they hit the ground.
2 --- Sonic rescuing Percival Blaze from the lava peak.
3 --- Sonic standing on his ground and ...more

In my opinion this is the best. Best story, gameplay, and soundtrack. Why it's so low confuses me greatly.

Is it really that hard to look up "sonic and the black knight review" - Sanicball

I personally love this game the soundtrack is the best in any sonic game, the graphics are breathtaking, the storyline is amazing, the cgi cutscenes, when used, are amazing, even the non-cgi cutscenes are impressive, Grifiths performance was outstanding definitely improved since games like sonic 06, level design, bosses, voice acting all are amazing.

Everything about this game is outstanding.

To say this game is outstanding is the understatement of the century, intact I'd go so far as to say that this is the best game anyone is ever gonna come up with.

I hate whoever put this so low on the list this should be number 1

IT'S GREAT but it should already be at number 10 because it's a great game but it's kinda hard but you'll make it through but shadow the hedgehog is also a great game but I like this BETTER and don't judge me it's option based

19 Sonic Advance 3 Sonic Advance 3 Product Image

Had an absolute blast with this one. Honestly the best of the Advance trilogy. Currently the Sonic game I like the most overall. Amazing music, spritework, gameplay mechanics such as the character pair combinations, bossfights (except the Twinkle Snow bossfight oh my gOD I HATE IT AA), and overall a stellar conclusion to the GBA Sonic games. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Disregarding the terrible English voice acting and annoyance of the sisterly relation of Amy & Cream being similar to that of Sonic & Tails/Shadow & Rouge, this game is a Modern Sonic masterpiece - powerful, graphically reminds me of the Super Mario Land trilogy, THIS GAME IS A MAINSTREAM/ESSENTIAL SONIC GAME!

Sonic Advance 3 was a blast and it did not tire me. But Classic Sonic is way better.

This game is overlooked! Sure this game is no sonic adventure 2, but once I played this, I was hooked. Never did beat it though because I never owned it.

20 Sonic Advance 2 Sonic Advance 2 Product Image

Good, solid fun, improves on Sonic Advance 1, isn't as weird as Sonic Advance 3

The Sonic Advance and Rush series are actually my favorites, but Sonic advance 2 was my favorite out of the pack, expanding on the first advance, but not going in a slightly weird direction like advance 3 or rush. For some reason I wasn't into having another character with you as a partner (or else I would have chosen Sonic the Hedgehog 2), and I didn't care for the dual screens that rush had, along with the boost function, not to mention the annoying touch screen special stages. Anyway, SEGA, real talk? Release a Sonic Advance & Rush Collection, you know you want to, or at least now you know I want you to.

Sonic Advance 2 is a really great game. Can play it anytime. Great gameplay, music, characters, graphics, everything about this game is awesome.

This is an old game. Princess Daisy could've been in this game since she would've been voiced by Jen Taylor.
I know that back in 2002, Nintendo & Sega still had their big rivalry.

21 Sonic Riders Sonic Riders Product Image

This is the best Sonic game ever made! Probably the only best to celebrate Sonic’s 15th anniversary. The story is well made, Jet is one of the best characters, I got used to the controls a lot. Jason Griffith is and will always be the best Sonic, Shadow and Jet no matter what. It’s super nostalgic to me. 10/10.

This game was a great game for the 25th anniversary of sonic. Though I must admit the the second and third pale in comparison to the fun in the games, all of them have great story line and incredibly addictive music! I like the addition of wave, jet, and storm, adding the second story for them, the ability to buy different gear, plus all of the memorable characters from sonic. Definitely check this out if you haven't played it. My experience was on Xbox but I'm sure it can be found for PS2

1000 times Better than drift 1 and 2 and sonic r

Sonic Riders is the most awesome Sonic game I've ever played.

Dude this definitely has to be first. Game play is amazing and has an awesome story line. Why didn't vote for this. It is the best and deserves to be number one

One of the first sonic games I had on wii, I think, I could be wrong

I like it mostly the graphics are great and the cutscenes are better with graphics. Lastly the song CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is so awesome!

First sonic game I ever played besides the Olympic games, and Man! Is it better than the other sonic riders games! The tilt controls actually go great with this game!

Lost world was criticized because it wasn't what the fans wanted. So they didn't even bother playing it with a postitive mind. The sonic fanbase is so picky. Sonic lost world is wacky. But in a good way. It had fun with itself and you can tell the developers had a blast making this game. The levels are more slow paced than most sonic games which makes it easier to appreciate them as your not speeding through them and instead exploring them. I do wish you could play as tails but sonics controls and physics are really good. I like the boss fights and enjoy how they are all differentt from each other. This is my favorite sonic game and I don't understand why the sonic fanbase can't accept new ideas to the series.

I love this game and I think it's so underrated. Look, it's not a Galaxy ripoff and it's not a slow game. Sonic Adventure 2 had the gravity gimmick BEFORE GALAXY. The Deadly Six were cool (Zavok especially) but they sucked as bosses. It's just a great game.

It looks pretty good

After Sonic Generations I wanted another boosting game...but...Sega is stupid! Still, this should belong as one of the greats in the Sonic series! It had a lacking story but the game is fun and is gorgeous! It's a good start to future Sonic games! They just need to have a story that doesn't suck!

Sonic battle was for the game boy but it contains solid game play and the fact that it was a 4 player game was impressive.

Sonic Battle should have been done to death and should have had so much sequels with now time graphics. You here SEGA you forgot that it could have been better than the DBZ games by now

I hated Amy Rose's personality in this game. I'll strangle her to death big time with Nintendo's mascot Mario on steroids.

I don't get the hate for this game! I really like it.

Great game but it can be better

This should come in top 1. Great graphics, perfect stages, awesome music, etc... This is the best Sonic game ever!

This game was cool.

You people know they are reffering to the horrid game gear version right?

STOP SCREECHING IN MY EAR, SCORPION BOSS!
