You might see me play a fair bit of Zelda and Mega Man fan-games, but it has been a long time since I did anything Sonic the Hedgehog related. Yet, the truth is, there are a fair number of high-quality fan-made Sonic games out there to play, but the one included here is one of the best of them!
Sonic: Before the Sequel was released in 2012 and, as you may have guessed, takes place between the original game and Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The game is massive: it features 11 Zones to zip through, each with three full stages (called “Acts” of course!) and a boss battle. Add in to that a great soundtrack and customized cutscenes and you have a very solid experience. I wasn’t sure how well I’d like it, but I really got into it and had a blast playing the game for nearly two hours!
I’ll definitely finish this one up with a Part 2 sometime in the future, but if you’d like to play the game yourself, follow the link below:
