    Somehow, Christian Whitehead and team have made the definitive version of Sonic even more definitive. The genuinely challenging stages are chock-full of secrets, and will require multiple playthroughs to find everything they have to offer.

    Really, no matter how you look at it, Sonic Mania is a huge success and Sonic Mania Plus is a celebration of that success thanks to smart physical edition design and items and valuable new in-game content. At only $30, it’s a superb deal and a release I would recommend be on anyone’s short list of must-haves.

    A year or so after the release of Sonic Mania comes Sonic Mania Plus, a version that adds new stuff like 2 more playable characters - Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the squirrel (who is not very pleasant), a competition mode for 4 players and more importantly Bis Mode that let us discover redesigned levels, great for those who know the original by heart. And it's still an extraordinary platformer for the blue hedgehog's fans.

    Sonic Mania Plus cranks the game up to eleven with its new content and it is a must-play for fans of the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2D platformers.

    Two new heroes and some new little things do the trick… Or almost. Even if we’d like more new levels, Sonic Mania Plus is still a great game loaded with good ideas, and it’s still a superb tribute to good old Sonic.

    For only a $5 upgrade fee, they get all of those warm fuzzy feelings but with two great new characters and a small handful of remixed content that doesn’t quite break the bank nor provide a ton of value. However, the early 1990s infrastructure that the game prides itself on hasn’t aged quite as gracefully and, while it still has plenty of charm, it doesn’t fit in as elegantly with the current 2018 era that it’s being released in.

    This DLC is good but dumb at the same time the encore mode is boring but might and ray saves the DLC, the encore mode big rings are too hardThis DLC is good but dumb at the same time the encore mode is boring but might and ray saves the DLC, the encore mode big rings are too hard to find but character switching is a good idea :) but there is quality problems to, like when you play egg revierie with mighty and ray (which only you can access with level select) they are not flying but walking in the air this is just dumb, okay i can understand might beacuse he as no flying sprite but ray he as flying animation and he is still walking in the air, okay one last complain mighty's ability isnt that usefull compare to ray,knuckles,tail and sonic, this dlc is good concept is good encore modes'color palet change is cool but he as problems but it still worth it Expand
