Sonic The Hedgehog 1 – Smoovies Reviews

Grab a few glasses of pinot noir, ’cause it’s time to spend the most awkward 13 minutes of your life watching Smoovies cry while reviewing Sonic the Hedgehog for the Genesis (Mega Drive!!!) and Game Gear.

    I've learned a lot these last three years. This video is just cringey to me now.

    'I don't think it's a bad game' fucking destroys the cartridge

    Euuugh. That just leaves a bad taste in my mouth… why would you go so far as to destroy it?

    I kind of agree about the wonky level design, I can defend that a little tho. Considering this was a whole new kind of plat-former that nobody has never really attempted before, it would make sense that they would test the waters with different kinds of levels to see what would stick and what wouldn't. (Which they did in future games, you have to admit.)

    This probably worked a lot more back in it's day when only a few levels that focus on the momentum based platforming would still be amazing to a gamer who has never seen anything like that in the first place.

    Glitches tho? I have to be totally honest, I have never seen any glitches like that in Sonic 1 ever. Like, ever. I don't know if that's your cart you're playing it off of or what.

    You're only suppose to go fast by knowing how to maintain the speed properly. The platforming gets heavier in progression at all platform games, it adds to the difficulty of which also makes you needing to think when to go fast and when not to. Get that "nostalgia" crap out of here.

    It went wrong when Yuji Naka got mad because the Sonic Xtreme team was using the NiGHTS engine. And that's why the Saturn failed.

    Bro you should have started your own channel and debuted with this video. With the same level of polish in each video you have the potential to become the next Jontron. Really enjoyed the video looking forward to the next one.

    I agree with most of what Stephen is saying. Don't get me wrong–I'm just as big of a Sonic fan as Gareth, Stephen, Chris, or any other guest to the channel like Johnny, Donnie, Ryan, or Clement. However, I do feel that Sonic 1 has that sort of "first-game weirdness" like Zelda 1 has where the game isn't bad, it's just where Zelda 1 is archaic, Sonic 1 has potential bugs that make it a little more frustrating. Are either of them bad? No. Are the formulas improved upon and made more fair (and more importantly more fun) in later games? It's debatable, but most would argue yes.

    What I don't like, though, is when criticisms aren't really about the game and are more about other outside sources. For example, when relating Sky Base Zone to Mario 3's World 8. I understand the humorous take on it, but that's kinda totally irrelevant: you're not saying the level's bad, but your tone of voice is making it sound bad because it reminds you of Mario 3…? That's just kind of confusing to me, honestly.

    I don't necessarily agree with everything you say, but that's life. I'll get over it in a few minutes and that will be that. Overall I enjoyed this, and if you really want to make another like your comment says, I'll be patiently waiting. The video and sound quality are all top-notch. The only thing I think needs some work is, like I said before, putting what makes sense over totally irrelevant topics.

    Everytime I play the game I never run into glitches, that's kinda surprising to see honestly. As for the levels and control, I don't see much of an issue with that stuff honestly. You have a mix of fast levels and a mix of slow levels as well as a couple mixed bags. Enemies and hazards never felt TOO difficult, but maybe that's just me

    Didn't really enjoy the comedy in this, came off as if you were trying too hard. However I think when you gave the informative parts and your opinion it was a lot more entertaining.

    I actually enjoyed the heck out of this
    It was great seeing an unbiased view of the game, I always felt the level design never reflected the character well, great to see someone else who thought similarly. This was overall incredibly plesant to watch! Looking forward to more of these!

    I think all of us sensible people can agree with him because Sonic 1 really does show how much of an introductory game it is. Especially when you've play the others.
