Still, if you've yet to delve into Sonic the Hedgehog's original '90s outings, or if you're searching for an excuse to play them again, then you could do worse than Sonic Origins – it's clear that there's more than a modicum of love for the blue blur in this bundle, but a dearth of modern features that you'd normally take for granted in a collection like this, and content locked off in paid DLC, make this a tricky thing to heartily recommend.
Playing all four games, I was taken aback by how Sonic Team was able to make each game feel distinctive. However, after all the reissues some of these games seen, long-time Sonic fans will have to decide if the collection's extras and changes are worth the price of admission. Of course, now that Sonic Origins has been released, I sincerely hope that Sega offers similar packages for other Sonic games.
In terms of DLC, for an additional cost you can get a bunch of "hard" missions, some extra wallpapers for use in Classic Mode, additional music, and decorative extras and camera angles on the menu screens. Given the relative dearth of unlockable extras, charging money for these features leaves a sour taste in my mouth. With so many coins I'm not using, these feel perfect for including as unlocks I can earn through normal gameplay. Instead, it's available at an extra fee to bolster an already unsatisfying offering.
