What are users saying about Sonic CD Classic

by H####:

Dear SEGA, can you see if you can release sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles? I love seeing Sonic return in his classic form. I loved Sonic 1 and Sonic 2. This game, Sonic CD had me excited for getting. I hope you love the journey of the original Sonic The Hedgehog games. I never was around when Sonic came, but after playing his first act, I had to play ALL the games. Thank you. P.S. why did you put the Sonic killing himself secret in Sonic CD? Kids are playing him! Not teens! What age were you aiming him at? 11+?!

by M####:

One of the best Sonic games with some cool new features added. It's even better then ever with the glitches fixed. (Thanks Sega/Whitehead!) It's very playable with a phone touchscreen, and plays like the original. Could use the custom touchscreen control options that Sonic 1 & 2 had, but the controls work just as good as those regardless. Kinda wish it had Knuckles unlockable though. Still, great remake, time trial mode is great, and offers plenty of unlockables. It's especially worth buying "no ads" for offline play.

by M####:

Hey this game is good but what's up with the ring statics and the walk and tap down? Some times in a act I walk into a couple rings, only to hear this crazy static. And the spining. When I spin(walk and then tap down) I don't hear a thing. Normally doing that you should hear this sound like in other sonic games. Can you fix both of these glitches? Thanks so much.

by M####:

THANK YOU :) but the audio quality is bad. Keeps cracking. This wasn't a problem when this game was on the app store before :( and it kinda sucks that I can't play offline. I wouldn't mind paying if it means I can

by G####:

Paid for the complete version says that it can't find my purchase, yet when I click it it says purchase restored. Really? I want to have the full version that I paid for please

by U####:

While playing, there was some glitches. For example, while running, the objects dissapear. Can you please fix this so I can enjoy the game?

by M####:

Its very fun and entertaining for the people that don't have a Sega CD at home. It has fresh refinements made from Taximan/Christian Whitehead, which makes it even better! I like it because this app gives a nostalgic taste to it, bringing back memories to classic fans, and giving new fans a taste of what it was like in the retro sonic world (much like Sonic Mania).

by M####:

2 star rating until this is fixed. I'm seeing adverts, and my purchase restore fails. Will restore to 5 stars once this major issue is fixed

by O####:

Sega I got this problem, see I beat the game twice with Sonic and Tails, got all good futures, all robot generators, all Metal Sonic holograms, all time stones, and still all of the extras are still locked. Can please fix this? But besides the ring audio, this game is the best! Thanks.

by M####:

Okay, this is insane. Connections to the Play Store are extremely broken and the ads are horrendous. The static got EVEN WORSE now. Super loud and hurts my ears. Strange random graphical glitches on title screen and during gameplay. ALL SPRITES ON SCREEN DISAPPEAR except for environment. Extremely common. Completely unplayable.

by M####:

Hey This Game is good with the codes on the sound test but theres one with a sonic with Mario face and the text is signed by majin the devil OR maybe Madin which is a creator of the sonic games and I think majin is a mis-spelling but the sound is creepy as hell

by M####:

Just wanted you guys to know that i unlocked all extras and then i put debug mode in but when i get in game debug does not work only shows x and y cordenets please fix

by M####:

I didn't even get to play the game b/c it crashes when I open the app. I've always wanted to play Sonic CD since I saw it… and now that I finally have it, I can't even play it!

by M####:

The Sega CD was amazing and so is this! It used to be on the app store but then you took it down and now it's back!

by Y####:

Um I have always wanted this game but I payed for full version and a few days later it is acting like that never happened.

by M####:

I like the game, until I get to the final level, because after I beat Eggman, I get hugged by Amy, the the game closes. Why does it do that?

by C####:

I bought the ad free version and am still getting ads, very annoying, I want my money back!

by K####:

I would give it a higher rating if SEGA didn't steal my money for the add free mode without delivering.

by S####:

wow. WOW!!! The controls are buggy. The old release is better (which is the game is deleted last year and returned it back this 2018). I love sonic games but this Sega CD port sucks. >:(

by M####:

It wasnt working it closed out every time I tried to play it

by M####:

The audio keeps breaking the dpad is too tiny every thing in this games level design past level 1 is made to send you flying back and just go sailing in literally any direction accept the one you want to go in.

by M####:

Well see its good game buuut there are waayy too many ads like heck if I pause it it will show an add and I don't see way you have to stay connected to the internet at all times

by M####:

I've paid to go ad free and is still showing ads, I tried to do the restore purchase and shows the server is down. I want my money back!

by O####:

I love Sonic CD. I Wanted to play this game my whole life. THANK YOU CHRISTIAN WHITEHEAD AND SEGA!!! Oh, and a suggestion. How about you guys make Sonic 3, Sonic and Knuckles, and Sonic Mania!

by X####:

Hey Sega I have a questoin or two one why didn't you let sonic mania on android and 2 can you give me a refund on sonic 1 so I could buy sonic cd ad free versoin thank

by M####:

Great game but the sound is weird, when I jump and great a ring simultaneously. it sound terrible

by M####:

Wow but pls make it ofline pls i dont to spend some money The sound effects is still buggy but I have the bad ending ahahha

by M####:

PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!! Whenever I open the app, it goes to a black screen for 2 seconds, then force closes itself. Please fix this! I've been hoping SEGA classic games would add this game to the app store for sooooo long!

by M####:

Another successful port and game from...well a failing franchise sadly as i grew up with this spiky blue hedgehog seroiusly this was the last good sonic game before sonic met 3d in 2006 (we all know how that went) im happy with this

by M####:

I dont know why but its not letting me play the game every time I try to play it the screen turn's black and then it takes me out of the game and it brings me to the play store and if your Wondering yes I updated it and it still didn't work can you please try to fix the game if you managed to fix it thank you

by M####:

by M####:

by F####:

Hey Sega, I can't play Sonic CD because it keeps crashing and saying "Unfortunately, Sonic CD has stopped", if you can respond and or help, please do cause I want to play Sonic CD.

by V####:

I love the game, it's just that one level is like impossible for me. Maybe you could make a little change to the level. (Level is, the Collison something 3)

by M####:

by H####:

Sonic CD remains one of the best Sonic games of all time, but this recent mobile re-release leaves something more to be desired, with a bunch of audio crackling issues that are very distracting.

by T####:

Crashes again thank you for nothing

by W####:

Ok i am happy that they fix the bug but can you do it without wifi the app is a great time killer

by M####:
