Sonic Mania Plus Review & Differences | Nostalgia Nerd

The differences between Sonia Mania and Sonic Mania Plus are subtle, but yet significant. This video therefore represents my Sonic Mania Plus review (Nintendo Switch), and highlights the key differences with the new version. Sonia Manic is a great game, so what can Sonic Mania Plus bring to the table to enhance that. Well, the main pitch is Encore Mode. In fact you can get Sonic Mania Encore as DLC, which then makes your standard Sonic Mania into Sonic Mania Plus. It's all getting a little complicated for my brain. Let's just play the game shall we?

    • I would seriously consider support you as patreon if i was a little richer, ive never done such a thing anyway but i am a true fan. I think its a great point that it is ok to wait abit with a new game. Im old too and things tend to stick around forca while it seems. Its so nice to listen to you in your videos. Even calming when im stressed. I like little hidden gems like alien isolation vs alien 84. Who does such amazing truly inspired by fanhood? Noone but you. Gone are the plastizied american young youtubers and replaced by a good old britt from my own continent, sweden here. I like britain so but i got confused over all videos about master system outselling the Nes in europe because my experience in sweden was very different. I had to look it up! And behold sweden was first nes adopter in europe and sold 500 000 units while mastersystem sold 100 000. About the relative householdpenetration as inte usa for our tiny country. Nes absolutely dominated here!

  • It’s January 2019. I’m watching this now because I’m thinking of downloading it on the switch, possibly in a few minutes if it seems any good. It’s $19.99 USD as of 01/24/19 (or 24/01/19 if you’re eurotrash haha)

  • Well, my country mostly doesnt know Sonic, and most of them dont play Sonic too. Well, it sucks to be in my country. But i know that my friends in school likes and knows Sonic because I introduced Sonic to the school, and I draw Sonic, A LOT. And my friends says my drawing was good, so when i have became and adult, I want to introduce Sonic to all of peoples in my country.

  • I loved Sonic Mania however what I don’t understand is that the developers got so much right with the game and yet choose to include ( in my opinion ) the worst possible bonus stages?? Just doesn’t make sense. Could be wrong but I’m sure most would have gone with the bonus stages from Sonic 2?

  • My twin boys got me to buy them this in the release day for their Xbox one. They love it. In fact me, my wife and the twins played it four player a lot on holiday in mablethorpe a few weeks ago. Great game, they really captured the essence of sonic on the Megadrive.

  • Did like it myself, but Its annoying having to keep doing the pinball bonus to restock on characters having only one or two can be painful in the later stages.

  • 6:45 you dont get emeralds by doing the pinball mini game, you still only get those by touching one of many giant gold rings scattered around levels and play a 3d mini game... also those new cutscenes are also in the normal mode.

  • Bought it day one on PC, and recently purchased Plus on the Switch for the sake of portability and collecting. It's a lot of fun, and slightly harder than the previous Sonic games I've played. Though the Puyo Puyo/Mean Bean minigame is pretty sluggish compared to the actual games, not to mention it uses the ruleset of the first installment which makes it unfair at times. Luckily, I have the sequel on the Mega Drive and Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Switch.

    MrCocktaiIMrCocktaiI2 år sedan
    • It's better than the so-called "D-pad" that's on the left joycon. Even then, the left joycon's analog stick actually works surprisingly well for 2-D platformers. It's not as precise as a real D-pad but it's a lot more quick and snappy than a typical analog stick IMO.

      BlueDragon992BlueDragon9922 år sedan
    • Eh. The thing is the switch doesn't have a d-pad. Persinally I've found that between the stick and durection buttons it's a tossup which will work better, and it's often not the buttons...

  • I never played the original Sonic Mania (because I was waiting for the obvious physical release) and I was surprised of how good the game is!! I was expecting more than half of the game to be like the original levels, but turned out that it's actually like 15% only. Yes, the assets are the same, but even the remade classic levels are completely different. If it wasn't for that, for the remade levels, I would put it on Top 1 Sonic games.

  • I waited to pick it up too. I have to say I am not disappointed with this game! I got it for my Switch also, makes for a great handheld game. I’m new to your channel and I love it! All the retro PC’s and connection videos have me geeking out.
