SEGA’s marquee franchise has had a rough time over the years finding it’s footing. They’ve hit some good titles like Sonic Generations and some misguided ones like the episodic Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Needless to say, Sonic’s had his share of highs and lows, but the hedgehog constantly proves to be one of gaming’s popular icons. Sonic Mania is a near perfect return to form for the blue blur, bringing back the 2D sidescrolling of yore and this time his 16-bit looks as well.
