Critics Consensus

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.

6.5/10
Zoey Handley (Destructoid)

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

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

J.R. Waugh (AOTF)

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.
