What Is It? Instead of boring gamers with their 1991 and 1992 installments, Sega jumped right to Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble as their first 3DS Virtual Console title. Wise choice, as this is the strongest of Sonic's 8-bit outings. You play either Sonic or Tails as they do battle once again with Dr. Robotnik. This time around the speedy duo are forced to contend with Knuckles the Echidna, who has been duped into believing Sonic and Tails are up to no good.

This third Game Gear installment brings back a lot of the items introduced in past 8-bit adventures. Sonic can use the Pogo Spring and Rocket Shoes from Sonic Chaos, something that gives this handheld edition a unique feel. The game's visuals are also remarkable, showing just what Sega can do once they've learned the hardware.

Does It Still Hold Up? Yes, the graphics are amazing. But the flashy graphics only reinforce the real problem with Triple Trouble. You can tell that Sega wanted to be even more ambitious with this sequel, yet they were thwarted by the system's limited hardware. There are some spectacular moments, but they are plagued by a number of technical problems. On the other hand, this is the first handheld Sonic game that feels like a classic 16-bit Genesis game. It's not without some problems, but Triple Trouble holds up just fine.

Is It Worth The Money? After spending months wondering where the Game Gear games were, it feels good to finally have some Sega games to talk about. Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble is a solid action game that will no doubt draw a lot of attention on the Virtual Console. The gameplay is sharp and the graphics will impress anybody who has been fed a steady diet of Game Boy games. On the other hand, this Sonic game is just a little too ambitious for its own good. Still, the game's problems shouldn't prevent you from adding this classic platformer to your SD card.
