Nintendo Download: Gotta Go Fast!

The second Sonic the Hedgehog game of 2017 arrives this week in the Nintendo Download.

[speedy catchphrase]

Not as hotly anticipated as Sonic Mania (which we loved) is Sonic Forces. This one doesn’t have the nostalgic cache really, as it’s split between classic Sonic and the modern equivalent. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a bad game. On the contrary, titles like Sonic Generations have done the same thing with great results. So maybe don’t judge it till you’ve played it… or read a few reviews.

Of course, Sonic Forces isn’t alone this week. So if you’re tastes lie elsewhere, you could prefer one of the other games hitting this week. Then again, you might not.

This is yet another week as of late where there’s a “big game” and a bunch of other titles that you probably haven’t heard of. Well, and the Neo Geo game of the week of course. You knew that was gonna be in there, didn’t you?

Before we get to the games, worth a mention this week is the Holiday Sweepstakes. Vote for your top five most wanted gifts this Holiday, and you just might win big.
