Introduction


Sonic has been the subject of so many memes and gone through so much pop-culture mutation -especially on the internet- that it's often hard to see the games for what they are anymore. This is primarily true for Sonic The Hedgehog (2006), which is by far the least polished product Sonic Team has ever produced. We're going to be playing that one, today.

What sets this LP apart, exactly?

I'll be discussing the level/game design, and demonstrating how to S-Rank every Sonic stage.

Wait, why?

Sonic The Hedgehog is, when you get down to it, just a failed videogame. It was ambitious, over-hyped by its marketing team, rushed through development, and it came out broken. It deserves the same chance every other videogame should get: to be thoroughly analyzed for both its successes and faults, regardless of its pre-release hype, series-related stigma, or memetic reputation.
