Break the Speed of Sound in the Humble Sonic Bundle!

The Humble Sonic Bundle is here! This latest offering from Humble Bundle packages together ten games featuring the fastest thing alive into one neat package.

As always, there are three separate tiers featuring different games from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. There's a lot of great classic and modern gameplay in the Humble Sonic Bundle, so let's get right to talking about the bundle that was just announced!

Sonic CD brings some great retro gaming to modern gaming systems in the Humble Sonic Bundle.

 

Humble Sonic Bundle - Pay $1 or More Tier

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode 1 is a sequel to the game's core franchise. Well, it's the first episode of the sequel, anyways. This game picks up right where Sonic and Knuckles concluded its plot, although some of the titles further down the list do a better job of living up to the franchise's legacy.

Sonic Adventure DX features six different characters that you can play as including Sonic, Amy, Tails, and Knuckles! Blaze through the world of decent 3D graphics with an occasionally-wonky camera.

Sonic CD has your old nemesis Dr. Eggman trying to steal a bunch of magic crystals. These particular magic rocks have the power to control time and it shows in the world of Little Planet where past, present, and future are all sorts of jumbled up!

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing shows that you just can't be a big-name franchise without having your very own racing game. This game has a lot of characters you'll fondly remember like an adorable little monkey in a ball and a few others that you've probably forgotten about.

 

Sonic Adventure 2 continues our hero's 3D adventures as he searches for the Chaos Emeralds! Fight for the good guys as Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles in your quest to get the magical macguffins! Alternatively, you can roll with the dark side as either Shadow, Dr. Eggman, or Rouge!

Sonic Adventure 2 Battle DLC brings a bunch of new content to Sonic Adventure 2. You can expect six new characters, 21 extra battle maps for two players, and Chao Karate!

Sonic Generations is relatively newer and much more well-received than many of the other 3D Sonic the Hedgehog titles.


Humble Sonic Bundle - Pay More Than the Average Tier

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Collection is another kart-racing game with the gimmick that your vehicles can transform to get through various different kinds of terrain. This racing game turned out surprisingly good and features 25 tracks and a whole bunch of fun!

Sonic Lost World has very little to do with Jurassic Park, much to our disappointment. You will, however, be exploring a beautiful world that seamlessly transitions between 2D and 3D as you combat the Sinister Six in a strange new land!

Sonic Generations Collection is one of the titles in the Humble Sonic Bundle that blends the old and the new into a fresh experience. Free Sonic's friends as you play through the game and then you can get them to help you out! Also includes the Casino Night DLC featuring a pinball level in the finest of Sonic styles.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4 - Episode 2 is, unsurprisingly, the second episode of Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Tails enters the fray to team up with Sonic and combat the villainous Dr. Eggman and Metal Sonic! This half of the game received a much better reception than its predecessor and would make for a much better addition to your collection.

Sonic Mania is a game that perfectly represents the Humble Sonic Bundle, fusing past and present into one awesome game.


Humble Sonic Bundle - Pay $15 or More Tier

Sonic Mania (Our Review) is the Sonic the Hedgehog game that fans had wanted for a very long time but didn't necessarily get until last year. It's packed with classic-style gameplay and some new twists. It may have a retro look, but everything from the graphics to the gameplay has been fine-tuned to perfection!

Sonic Forces (Our Review) is the one where you can make your own avatar in the franchise's unique art style. It was an interesting premise, but it wasn't exactly well-received. Still, it's a good enough game and it's worth checking out!


Welp, that's it for the Humble Sonic Bundle! Not every game in here is a winner, but you're sure to find something you like if you're a fan of platformers!

The Humble Sonic Bundle will be available for another two weeks or so. Head on over to Humble Bundle's website and pick up the Humble Sonic Bundle for yourself before it's too late!
