    Like any good DLC pack though, this game also has some tweaks and fixes for the core game. Sure it was great, but it wasn’t perfect. Some mechanics have been altered and a few of the bosses have been tweaked. This really feels like the definitive version of the game. For those that already own it, the $5 for the DLC is a no-brainer. For fans wanting a physical copy, the additions and price are outstanding. Sonic Mania Plus is the best version of a great game. It feels good to be talking about Sonic in a positive light once again.

    While it was already a fantastic package on the outset, this new update makes it even better than before. If you missed Sonic Mania the first time around, now is the perfect time to catch up.

    Sonic Mania Plus is the best recent evolution of SEGA's franchise, with great new features, a rock-solid gameplay and a very attractive retail version. The best Sonic is undoubtedly the classic one.

    A 'complete edition' pack that only include one new DLC with two characters and one game mode. It may not look like much, and if you already have the digital version of the game you don't need to buy this Plus edition... But if you haven't played this superb platformer yet or you are a hardcore Sonic fan you have to have it.

    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.

Ray, who once you get used to his flying ability, is the best of speedrunning, and Mighty who is very useful for exploration. The Bonus level is the greatest, the blue sphere unlocks are flipping amazing, and the easter eggs are legendary. Would recommend if you have the original to get the DLC's instead but if you never bought it, love the art, love physical copies, or just love classic sonic. This is the game for you Expand

    It's been almost a year since Sonic Mania has been released to the world and everyone soon fell in love with the game and it's no secret thatIt's been almost a year since Sonic Mania has been released to the world and everyone soon fell in love with the game and it's no secret that the team behind Sonic Forces admits loving Sonic Mania as well by connecting the events of the two games together for rather two epic games to play for the price of one. I think it was time for Sonic Mania to get an upgrade due to the critical success of Sonic Mania and the fact that it's literally impossible to get a physical copy of the game. Introducing Sonic Mania Plus, an upgraded Sonic Mania that includes even more things that might as well make it even better than its original form, it has more nostalgia written into it than what Sonic Mania could ever have to surprise its fans into wanting more.
