And you should pick it up and play it, because this game is great fun, and with a friend playing in co-op, it's even more fun.
Even the graphics and environments are polished and look good, and the music is top-notch. Get this game and bring a friend, and you'll be in for some of the finest 2D beat em' up gaming on the SEGA Genesis.
Your character is on a planet inhabited by killer robots. You have to run, level to level, shooting these robot as quick as you can, before the "evil otto", the king of the robots, appears on screen to kill you.
There are loads of different game modes, you could play this game for hours and never get bored.
It's an intense game, with fantastic gameplay, and heck, for the Atari 2600, even the graphics and sound are good.
Now, go play it!
Well, yes, and no. The problem with Sonic CD is that it changes the formula of the Sonic games we all love; just a little too much.
Instead of running as fast as you can to the end of the level, you are encouraged to explore a bit more. So instead of racing though, it plays a little bit more like Super Mario Brothers 2 on the NES.
Don't get me wrong, Sonic CD is still a fun experience. But combined with bad enermy placement; Sonic fans shouldn't expect to speed run though this one; like they loved to in the Genesis titles.
