Omitted Games

Several games were omitted from the final release. The first was SegaSonic the Hedgehog, which was intended to be part of the compilation but was removed as the original games was controlled with a trackball. The next was Knuckles' Chaotix, which was removed for unknown reasons, however a whole art section still appears in the final game. The final was Sonic Eraser, which can be found by hacking the game. Four games [mentioned earlier] were omitted to lower the game's ESRB rating.


  • Sonic R was updated substantially, with improved graphics and gameplay.
  • The PC version of the compilation uses the PC versions of Sonic R and Sonic CD
