All in all, Sonic Mania Plus wasn’t made for me, the casual fan that had more fun on the GBA than anything else. This one was made for the fans, the players that replay these games frequently and are aware of the subtle design choices and secrets. For most players, Sonic Mania Plus is still a fun time, but for me, it’s one that I probably won’t pick up as often as others might. Personal criticisms aside, there is quality in Sonic Mania Plus and it’s one that I can easily recommend.
Last Recode in my opinion is worth trying out and I do hope that Namco Bandai consider doing something similar for the first series, as those too are extremely expensive and were never released digitally. I would also like to see the PSP series get translated and from there maybe even a new approach to bring us back into The World.
It’s 2017 and I find myself obsessed with Skyrim once more. Now that it’s portable on the Switch, I can take it anywhere, only restricted by battery life.
Playing through A Hat in Time was time spent with a broad smile and a belly full of chuckles. It was one of the most wholesome gaming experiences I’ve had in years, recapturing that childhood wonder and pure enjoyment of playing games. I cannot wait to see if there’s an expansion in mind, or how the modding scene plays with it, or what Gears for Breakfast cooks up next!
