Backlog Blitz: Master System, Week Nine, "Sanic"

Oh, praise be. We're almost done with the Master System. Praise the sun. Praise the gloriously incandescent sun. (And that reminds me I want to play Dark Souls III, so let's get these games over with, eh?)

Sonic Chaos

Well this is by far the most sluggish Sonic game I have ever played. And I played Sonic Heroes
If I didn't know better I'd swear the emulator was lagging. It's like someone's ROM hack got released on cartridge. The controls feel like molasses. 

Sonic Spinball

I love pinball. I don't hate Sonic. This should be good. It isn't.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Now THIS is a good Sonic game. Responsive controls, high speed, good music, good graphics... More like this please. 

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

See previous entry. 

Space Harrier

So it's a faux-3d space shooter. It's not terrible, honestly. It's no Star Fox 64, but it's pretty solid. Some differentiation between enemy projectiles and my own would be nice though...
