The collectibles inside were nicely packaged except for the plastic card with the steam code written on it, fell out of the box while opening it. The Sonic statue is a light weight hollow plastic, I expected a heavier statue like the Overwatch collectible but this is still nice. The statue requires two AA batteries and even though there's a volume switch on it, the "SEGA" voice is still always the same.
The box also includes a metal "Collectors Card" but I have no idea where something like this would be showcased so I keep it in my old Sonic Wallet.
The Photo for the Sonic Mania cartridge showcased on amazon is different to how it is in person, the ring is encased in a black plastic as opposed to what the photo shows and the ring itself is a nicely made metal ring (definitely too big to wear on your finger unless you have sausage fingers like Sonic).
Overall nice presentation and was definitely worth the extra cash if you're a Sonic nut.
On the plus side, the presentation is beautiful. It's a box within a box kinda deal and the inner box has this heavy flap on it. Once inside that box, you see your digital download card, the much larger than expected statue, the metal collector's card and the gorgeous Genesis cartridge with the stunning ring inside.
The statue takes 2x AA size batteries for power and the "SEGA!" sound is quite loud. Holding it in my hands made me feel like a kid again. I haven't owned a Genesis in years and it was quite the walk down memory lane. *raises glass* To good times...
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you about the game itself, just yet. The PC version was delayed until August 29th (we'll see, I'm expecting later...) so all I can do at the moment is add it to my Steam account and wait for them to unlock it whenever Sega gives them the go ahead. Once I actually get to play the game itself, I'll update accordingly.
As for the Collector's Edition, itself, it's a fantastic presentation with lovely content, but it's overpriced. I preordered it back in September of '16, so I was able to get it at a discount. At the price I paid, it's worth it. At the current asking price of $69.99? No. As impressive as it is, it's not $70.00 impressive. The statue piece is hollow (it's very light, you can tap your fingers on it and get that plastic echo), the buttons are very clicky and don't move smoothly, I worry about their longevity. The cartridge, the ring, and the metal card are all top notch, but they're not $70 impressive. They just aren't.
I know, I know, $20.00 of that is going to the game, so the stuff in the box comes out to be about $50.00 when it's all said and done, and for some, that's all right. To each their own. For me, I feel it's a bit overpriced for what you're getting.
It's a really, REALLY great game if your a fan of platformers. The level design is top notch and NO, that's not because they 'reuse' levels, they reuse themes of levels, the start of a level may be similar to the original level it's based on but it smoothly evolves into it's own level design. New or old, the levels are really fun with more branching paths than the previous 3+1 games combined. There's so much crammed into each level replaying it once doesn't net you half the experience. Nevermind the call backs to every game, every little thing they did is some form of call back down to really, really obscure stuff you'd have to be a mental case to know....Yeah, I'm there.
Every act smoothly transitions into the next and most levels have a transition Sonic 3 & Knuckles style. Every act has it's own song as well as every level and even bosses get their own themes! This is the real Sonic 4, building upon what the last game did and adding to it.
Each character plays differently with Sonic having yet a new skill the drop dash which I imagine is a speed runner dream (in the air hold jump and upon landing you'll get a short burst of speed), Tails can fly around as always and swim to boot. Knuckles while slower, can't jump as high can climb, glide and plow through his own unique paths and entirely different Acts. Despite the rumors, he does chuckle. Sonic and Tails got majorly buffed as he's no longer just an annoying tag-along. Hold up and jump and Tails will start to fly and if you jump at him he can carry you! Such a nice change that makes the duo work together better and isn't just there to lose rings in half pipes or make you fall through bosses into blue goo filled death pits.
There's also unlockables, if you don't wanna know about them skip to the next part.
Playing Blue Sphere and beating levels doesn't net you emeralds, instead you are rewarded with coins that unlock special features, Time Attack, Competitive Mode and cheats. You can (by going to the NO SAVE slot) activate cheats where you can use Sonic CD's peel out or Sonic 3's shock attack. Also you have the pretty infamous "And Knuckles mode" which lets Knuckles tag along with Sonic, Tails... or Knuckles! ...And they even explain it!!!
The special stages are a mix of the Sega Saturn's Sonic 3D Blast's low-poly stuff with Sonic CD's UFO hunting, it's ...so silly. It's all low poly and looks like a launch Saturn game even having some pop in. It's brilliant. Get all 7 emeralds and you get Super Sonic/Tails/Knuckles, Super Sonic gets a special final stage only..........Unless you cheat and warp to the final level with a level select code and go there with Knuckles or Tails where you can play the level with them.
-----------END OF UNLOCK SPOILERS----------------------
The music...it just might beat Sonic 3 and Knuckles, there's so many good tracks and the remixes are just ...so, freakin', good! A lot of variety in themes and it's worth listening to loud and out of the game.
There's a awesome intro video done by Tyson Hesse, his wife that is so ...freakin' charming it's glorious. If you watch it a second time consecutively it'll play with an alt song.
I played to level 3 on the PC version so far and played both Blue Sphere & Special Stage levels, all run fine without any problems. There's a 60fps cap on the game and thankfully there's no problems with 144hz monitors the game will run fine unlike the Sonic CD port and some other 2D titles on steam.
This is ABSOLUTELY worth getting, it's a great game nostalgia fueled or otherwise. It's something SEGA should have done a long time ago.
Collectors Edition notes:
The Sonic statue is massive, it's impressively sized and looks pretty good. It's hollow and the Genesis is ...oddly not accurate. It's slightly larger and is very much a newly made mold that's far from accurate on closer inspection. It's not bad just don't expect anyone to be fooled. Pop 2AA batteries in and flip the power switch and ....you should know.
The cartridge is also, not accurate, it will not fit into a model 1 Genesis cart port at all. Nothing to do with a fatter cartridge board, the cart is literally a different size. The metal ring inside is neat? ....I just like the cart down to it's connector pins being shiny. It looks the part and you'd fool anyone without a direct comparison.
You also get a metal card with some art on it, why? ....My theory is it was meant to have the game download code on it but they couldn't do that for some reason. So they just included the card as is. It looks like that's how it is anyway.
SWITCH VERSION NOTES:
It's solid on the Switch, I beat it with all the characters and has only some framerate issues in the Special Stages which I'm sure will be patched at some point. It works great portable or docked and is no slouch vs the other versions.
The one flaw ...is the Switch itself, the 'd-pad' on the joycon is just ...not great for this game. It's serviceable, it works but you just don't have the same feel and movement as a proper dpad that's connected in the middle. I played it with that and the 8BitDo FC30 controller and it worked better but I couldn't help but feel a tiny, tiny bit of a delay.
It's a great option for portable gaming but don't expect the dpad on the Switch to deliver the same performance. I will seriously buy another joycon if they have a proper dpad version (YES, I know why the buttons the way they are, it doesn't change how this gets reviewed, it makes performance harder).
