Sonic and the Secret Rings review

That damned hedgehog gets a second lease on life

This isn’t to say that Secret Rings is a walk/blistering sprint in the park - another nod back to its Genesis roots is its old school challenge. Initial runs through the levels are easy enough, generous checkpoints and unlimited attempts easing us through. It’s with later objectives that things get nasty, requiring perfect memory of obstacle and foe layout to even think about nailing the unimpressive bronze medals and near-godlike skills needed to unlock golds. Levels become mere chains of moves with left-left-jump-shake-tilt-jump-right-right-jump etched in your memory.
