Top Ten Sonic the Hedgehog Video Games With the Best Graphics

The Top Ten

1 Sonic Unleashed

I agree they are very good! I am surprised this game is so old Plus this is one of my favorite Sonic games! - ExplodedGaming

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?!?! )

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silly, dull, modern (not that I don't like the modern times, it is just executed in a somewhat excruciating way) and outdated.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.

Although this game is trash it has pretty good graphics but I think it deserves to stay in 3rd place! - ExplodedGaming

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

This game belongs in the trash. - TopTenX

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)

4 Sonic Colors
5 Sonic Lost World

Wonderful graphics and level design. Definitely a Solid game worth picking up. - DCfnaf

The Wii U's graphics irritated me actually.

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

Looks like a ps2 game.


7 Sonic 3 & Knuckles

Best sonic game graphics. I really like how stuff look in that game.

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.

Just because games have good graphics don't mean they’re good. Call the genesis dated you want, but Sonic games on that system were the best

8 Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Even game gear sonics have good graphics, for being 8 bit

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.

9 Shadow The Hedgehog

Love the graphics


10 Sonic Heroes

The Contenders

11 Sonic CD
12 Sonic Forces

Graphics looks nice in my opinion. - ChroniclerMan5

Pretty snazzy - sonictiger

13 Sonic And The Black Knight
14 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!

This game have very nice graphics

15 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?!

16 Sonic Adventure

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

17 Sonic R

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

The graphics are cute :3 - spodermanfan1000

18 Sonic Mania
19 Sonic X-Treme

It has X-Tremely good graphics - Eamon

20 Knuckles' Chaotix
21 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

22 SegaSonic the Hedgehog

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

23 Sonic Advance

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

24 Sonic Dreams
25 Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Really nice graphics!

26 Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics

Good for a 2011 game, even thou I’m an adult, I got addicted to this game!
