Nostalgia Critic to ‘review’ Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog


If any of you out there are familiar with’s ‘Angry Video Game Nerd‘, you may well have heard of the Nostalgia Critic. He’s been mentioned in quite a few different episodes throughout the Nerd’s escapades and even starred in a couple of cameo roles. For those of you who haven’t a clue who either are, allow us to explain.

The Nostalgia Critic is a character played by an Internet comedian whom takes the roles of several different people, records some hilarious skits as those characters and uploads them onto the Internet via his website. The Nostalgia Critic is, as you’d expect, a ‘reviewer’ of old eighties and nineties movies and television shows, focusing more on jokes and entertainment than professionally critiquing the subjects themselves.

After recently making a video on Nintendo’s ‘Super Mario’ and ‘The Legend of Zelda’ cartoons, the Critic has decided that it’s SEGA’s turn next, announcing his ‘review’ of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog to be uploaded on the 17th of February.

For a bit of fun, it’ll be interesting to see what the Critic thinks of SEGA’s attempt at an American cartoon compared to his, quire underwhelming, opinions on Nintendo’s efforts. Do keep in mind though, the Nostalgia Critic’s videos are more or less solely for entertainment purposes, it’d be a bit silly to take the video too seriously once it comes online, whether it be good or bad.

Thanks to SSMB member ‘hurtfulthings‘ for the heads up! You can also discuss the video once it comes online next month in the SSMB topic located here.
