Sonic Origins

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Sonic Origins is competent, and is a good way to introduce newer players to what makes Sonic the Hedgehod so unique. But it is also deeply flawed with an abbreviated list of games, a lack of features, stingy DLC practices, and some frustrating crashes.

Game Info

Play as Sonic, Tails, & Knuckles and immerse yourself in the fully remastered gameplay, tie the games together with all new animations, explore added features, modes, and more!

6.5/10

Slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled.

7/10

The games remain timeless classics, but the Sonic Origins wrapper leaves something to be desired.

4.5/5 stars

Sonic Origins is an essential collection not only for any franchise fan with current or last-gen gaming hardware but also for anybody who appreciates tight gameplay with a banger soundtrack. Sonic is the ultimate “Animal With an Attitude” mascot still having major games released to this day, and while the franchise has had a tarnished reputation due to sub-par releases lately, it remains plucky and pushes forward, never losing sight of its roots.
