Welcome to The Next Level, Genesis Does what Nintendon't, this topic is for the Sonic games made for Sega's hit console! The Sega Genesis (also known as the Sega Mega Drive everywhere else) broke the stranglehold Nintendo had internationally over the game market, though while it did well it's thanks to the Blue Blur that made it a true hit. In here you can talk about all the Sega Genesis games Sonic has had, this also includes Sonic CD as well. So if you want to start discussions about the games that started it all, please do so. A few days ago, Sonic 2 had it's 27th Anniversary. It's called one of the best Sonic games, even the best Sonic game and Genesis game ever made by many. So, I'd like to ask you that question and hear what you all have to say. Is Sonic the Hedgehog 2 really the best Sonic game ever made? Is it the best Sonic game ever made for the Genesis? Let's get this ball rolling.
So recently I brought myself a small challenge regarding a Rom hack and realized this would be great for topic! This isfor issued challenges among ourselves and others, mainly for fun. So for any Classic Era game if you have a way to playthrough the game and let's see how you stack up! The challenge that inspired this run is for Sonic 3 Complete, it's something I call the Classic Sonic Run. You see, in the hack you can set it up so that Sonic can play like how he did in Sonic 1/2 and Sonic CD (both Original and 2011 version). Along with that option in the menu are ips patches where you can set up the items to be that of Sonic 1/2, meaning all elemental shields become normal shields from 1/2/CD. This is how I set it up. Sonic 3 Complete: Classic Sonic Challenge Use patch for Sonic 1 or 2 Sprites (For Extra Flavor). Use patch for Sonic 1 or 2 Items (They're the same aside for minor visual differences, but change the game due to no elemental protection or free oxygen via Water Shield). Use patch for Sonic 1 or 2 Monitors (For stylistic legitimacy). in Sonic 3 Complete Menu, Use Control Type Sonic 1, 2, CD 1993, or CD 2011 (This means NO Insta-Shield). I managed to get through the game and got both Chaos and Super Emeralds. It did make the game slightly tougher, especially in later levels, had to be a lot more careful. Do any of you have your own little challenges that you make up or know of? Let us know.
