As a 33yr old Sonic fan who's been with the franchise since the beginning...

...I couldn't be happier.
Since 1999 Sonic games have been an absolute car crash, more ridiculous characters, terrible plot lines, awful gameplay (there are a few exceptions).
Sonic Mania is a return to form and I really do hope we see more like this in the future (the modern stuff can continue if need be, just as a separate offshoot I guess, but good luck to them, have you played Forces...j*s*s chr*st what a pile of sh*t).
Anyway as for the Plus version. I bought a physical copy despite owning the original just to show my support, the flippable cover is nice touch and the booklet whilst small is a welcome bonus. As for the game itself, there isn't as much new as I'd hoped, Ray and Mighty are cool to see after soooo many years absent but I'm not driven to really play it as much as I used to because a pallette change on the levels isn't that much of an incentive.
Overall though, a solid package and well worth a purchase.
