Top Ten Sonic the Hedgehog Video Games With the Best Graphics

The Top Ten

1 Sonic Unleashed

The only problem I had with the good graphics is that it would lag at random points. But that's what happens with Sonic moving at his fastest and beautiful graphics - cdxtreme

I loved the realistic looking graphics and while the characters didn't look realistic they looked like cartoon characters in the real world.

Yeah! This is hands die the best looking sonic game (can someone please explain why the graphics looked subpar in free riders and generations?!?! )

Unleashed still looks graphically better than Generations.

2 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

I quite hate the graphics of Sonic Next-Gen. They are silly, dull, modern (not that I don't like the modern times, it is just executed in a somewhat excruciating way) and outdated. If anything, the Sonic games for the SEGA Genesis deserve to be higher. Sonic Next-Gen has a silly fanbase as well as a wild hate-base. If anyone hates Modern Sonic, other people could hate you even more if you hate Sonic Next-Gen.

I wish the Wii version of this wasn't cancelled.

3 Sonic Generations

I love the graphics on this game. I used to want this game on Wii (even though it never came out for wii) when I did not have an Xbox 360. I see why a Wii version was never released. THe graphics are amazing.

I love the graphics for this game, but what did they do with Modern Sonic's lips?

While not as good as Unleashed's graphics, the graphics in this game were still great and at times are quite gorgeous (most notibly in Sky Sanctuary)

5 Sonic Lost World

6 Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric

Unlike 06, this game's graphics literally annoy me!

Nah these graphics were awful. Nothing compared to lost world. - DCfnaf

Even if not an amazing game, the graphics were good...

8 Sonic 3 & Knuckles

Nothing wrong with preferring this game over a Modern Sonic game. Take for instance, presentation-wise. We didn't have Modern Amy Rose back then.

9 Sonic Heroes
10 Sonic the Hedgehog 2

I love retro graphics, but Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit) had such sharp, deft, reminiscent-to-Mall-of-America graphics that it makes Sonic Unleashed look like Sonic's Schoolhouse.

The Contenders

11 Sonic And The Black Knight
12 Sonic Adventure 2

I love Sonic Adventure 2's graphics mainly because they are similar to the graphics of Super Monkey Ball (original) except they are more retro!

13 Sonic CD
14 Sonic Adventure

I think that Sonic Adventure (DC)'s graphics can actually be compared to Sonic X-Treme's graphics. :D

15 Sonic R

What's to expect from a video game released in the 5th generation era of gaming?

16 Knuckles' Chaotix
17 Sonic the Hedgehog

I put the original 16-bit version on the list. This game has such underrated graphics. What's wrong with 16-bit graphics with no flickering issues, extraordinary sights (especially how the sky in Starlight Zone is starry) and etc?!

18 Sonic the Fighters

Yeah, I said it, Modern Purists of the broken Sonic fanbase that like anti-feminism! Like Sonic Adventure 2, the graphics and environments are heavily reminiscent to the original Super Monkey Ball, which I blatantly love! - Kieran Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil

19 SegaSonic the Hedgehog

What an artistic, retro move SEGA went through back in the day!

20 Sonic Advance

I put this as the Sonic Advance trilogy. 32-bit for the win!
