The Sonic franchise produced previous games that received so-so reviews but Sonic Mania is different. Perhaps because the game was made by fans for the fans. Sega called upon Christian Whitehead, the lead programmer for the title, Simon Thomley, a fan game developer as well as Teo Lopes a composer who remixes video game tracks on YouTube. As fans, they know exactly what they want out of the game and they were able to deliver.

Sonic Mania received generally favorable reviews for the game across their platforms:

It’s a fantastic entry for the franchise, and it certainly has helped to reinvigorate my interest in the character going forward.

An excellent 2D platformer, Sonic Mania goes beyond expectations managing to be not only a proper evolution of the series’ iconic formula, but the best sonic game ever made.

The Games Machine

Sonic Mania is not a perfect game, and the Sonic playstyle is not definitely for everyone. If you love the blue hedgehog, though, you cannot let this one go: it’s huge, challenging, full of secrets, with lots and lots of different situations. Hands down, one of the best platformers of the past ten years.

A return to the series’ roots in every sense, Sonic Mania is a joyful reminder why the franchise became such a hit in the first place. Through its content with past glories, it does so exceptionally well. Exciting level design, a stellar soundtrack, and cool expansions on the original formula work in one accord to deliver the Sonic game fans have been waiting for.

Sega took a chance in letting a long time Sonic fan and a few smaller dev teams bring the original 16-bit iteration of their mascot back into the modern era, and the result is Sonic Mania, one of the purest and most enjoyable Sonic games we’ve ever been given. The question isn’t if this experiment is reviving classic Sonic was successful or not – the question is what happens next.
