Sonic is back on Game Gear in a new adventure!

Sonic Chaos is a Game Gear Sonic game at it's best. Well mostly everyone knows who Sonic is so do I really need to give an introduction to Sonic the Hedgehog? No, but for newcomers to the world of gaming I will. Sonic the Hedgehog is a blue hedgehog that can run at high speeds, and do anything to stop the evil Dr. Robotnik (now referred to as Dr. Eggman nowadays).

The gameplay in Sonic Chaos is very traditional and Sonic fans will feel right at home with it. At start of the game you can choose two characters either Sonic, or his orange two tailed friend Tails. Very fast pace gameplay that's improved from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on Game Gear. The game plays more like some of Genesis Sonic games with Sonic's super spin dash and Tails's flying. The objective in each level is make it to the end of the level in the lowest amount of time. During the level you must defeat any robots that get in your way, collect rings to keep your self safe from losing a life, and fight Robotnik in the third act. The game is setup as most Sonic games, act 1, act 2, and act 3 with boss. Levels are short in length, but actually very forgivable since the game does have that classic, fun, hi-speed Sonic gameplay that Sonic fans grown to love.

Well there isn't really a story involved. But the situation is Robotnik, as usual wants all the Chaos Emeralds to take over the world. So it's up to Sonic and Tails to stop them. So there's really not much of a story in this game. Besides this is the plot most Sonic games follow, so it's all good.

Sonic Chaos has excellent graphics in a Game Gear game. The game in every way is almost as close to its Genesis counterpart. Sound is great as well, good catchy music that Sonic games are known for as well as sound effects that almost sound close to the Genesis games too.

Play Time/Replayabilty
Play time is really short. You can get about two hours minimum with it, but overall it's a great two hours. Replayabilty is high as most classic Sonic games are.

Final Recommendation
If you are a proud owner of a SEGA Game Gear, buy this game! This is one of the best Sonic Game Gear games out there! You can't go wrong with it!
