The Best Sonic Game Of All Time.
Sonic mania was one of the best returns to form ever in gaming history. After It came put with gorgeous graphics and enchanting level with its amazing soundtrack, many were clammering to get a physical version or a sequel of some kind.
In the end we got a physical release but with a new DLC added. I have the digital version so I can't talk about all of the nice goodies that camw with the physical version but I can definitely talk about the new content.
While the new content isn't as awe inspiring or as groundbreaking as the original it only adds to a perfect game and never harms it. The problem lies with in it not having anything that new in terms of zones and levels. It's not that the game failed to implement new content. In fact it does it perfectly. It's just that the content isn't anything better than the full expirence.
Sonic mania plus comes with an all new encore mode. Which it really is as the levels and zones have only been slightly modified. The game dose give us a brand new version of mirage saloon though and gives us one act of angle island which is nice and enjoyable but not that expansive.
The biggest changes that come to the game are the inclusion of mighty and Ray. Ray can fly like Cape Mario and mighty can walk on spikes like funky Kong. He can also slam and break blocks. He makes the game easier for new and unexpirenced players while Ray makes it alot harder for veteran players whole also allowing them to explore hidden areas within zones and discover some interesting secrets.
The new special stages also change things up and some of the bosses have been redesigned. I was hoping to see a redisgn of the final boss as I found him to have incredible music and nice build up but to not be that interesting overall. Even then, I still like the boss. I like all of the bosses. Everything in this game goes above and beyond and with the DLC pushes it forward. Even with a few nitpicks here and there the game is still a true masterpiece with its colourful graphics and fantastic animation and awe inspiring level design that rivals sonic 3 and knuckles and its heavenly soundtrack that is sure to have you playing it on loop with some of the best sounding music I have ever heard in video game history. A good exam of that is the songs for titanic monarch. Just go listen to it and even better play the game.
Sonic mania plus only adds to what will go down as the greatest sonic game of all time.
Quite ironic it was made by a fan though.
