Released in 1993 for the Sega Master and a month later the Sega Game Gear, Sonic Chaos was the fourth game in the series.
Dr Robotonik has stolen the red chaos emerald from South Island, with one of the emeralds missing, chaos and destruction are caused all over the island. Sonic and Tails are both informed that Robotnix plans to use the stolen emerald to power nuclear weapons and so they set off to put a stop to his actions and return the emerald to where it came from.
Sonic Chaos has two difficulty levels which are represented in the games character selection, Sonic is more difficult and has full access to the special stages in the game but has to traverse across the difficult platforming segments while Tails can fly over obstacles and even fly across water however Tails cannot access any of the special stages. Apart from this both characters play the same stages and fight the same boss battles.
There are five hidden chaos emeralds in special stages through out the game, players can enter the special stages when they collect 100 rings in two stages from an Act, the gems are hidden in these stages and all of them must be collected to unlock the good ending as Sonic.
The rocket shoes are a new item in this game and they allow Sonic to temporarily fly making some of the platforming a little bit easier.
The soundtrack is medicore for a Sonic game and to be honest it feels like it belongs somewhere other the sonic universe, the music is ok but there isn’t anything special about it .
Sonic Chaos is a fun game, I much preferred it to Sonic CD, It is very short though I managed to finish the story mode with all of the chaos emeralds in just over an hours time. Apart from its short story mode and medicore soundtrack the game is a blast to play through and is a good way to pass time, I wouldn’t personally recommend playing as Tails as I found the game easy enough playing it as Sonic.
Sonic Chaos is a good Sonic game but it is far from one of the best 7/10
