Video game compilation for Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic Origins is an action game developed by SEGA. This game relives the classic adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. It features remasters of the first four platform games in the Sonic series: Sonic the Hedgehog (1991), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992), Sonic CD (1993), and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles (1994).

The games in Sonic Origins are playable in their original format. However, there will be a new widescreen format that removes lives. There will also be additional modes and missions that you can unlock. Although, some of its features are locked behind paid-for DLC

What is Sonic Origins?

Sonic Origins is not just a game. It is a compilation of four classic Sonic games released for the Sega Genesis and the Sega CD. Here, you will speed down memory lane to thwart the sinister plans of Doctor Robotnik. Although, you can experience them in high definition. It also has an all-new opening and ending animations for each of the four titles.

Origins also feature various versions of each game. The Classic Mode offers the original format, presented in a 4:3 ratio. Meanwhile, the Anniversary Mode supports a widescreen display and removes lives. You can also play in Story Mode, which allows you to play the four games in sequence with new animated cutscenes. The remastered game also includes a boss rush mode, a mirror mode, and a mission mode.

Playing these modes allows players to earn coins. Then, you can use these coins to buy new content in an in-game museum or for additional attempts in special stages. There will also be DLCs available. However, as mentioned, these DLCs require additional payment. With this, you will be paying extra when you wish to experience the extensions of the classic Sonic games

Should you play it?

Sonic Origins is a must-play for all fans of Sonic the Hedgehog. It brings four of the classic Sonic games on one platform. But, you can experience the game in a new and better resolution.
