Track 23 of the Retro Video Games Project.
Music from the snow/ice levels of Sonic 3 and footage from possibly one of the worst video game to anime movies that I have seen, Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie.
The video tries to recreate the Sonic experience to a certain extent... The AMV begins with images of the only characters in Sonic 3 (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Dr. Robotnik) and a guest appearance from Metal Sonic (Sonic 2!) in an attempt to (re)establish the characters. Then more images... the Floating Island is the main image while images from the movie are overlaid which kindof establishes, loosely, a storyline for the video... eventually Sonic comes running along doing what he does best (and what the Sonic series is known for), running around dodging obstacles and pouncing on Robotnik's little machine thingamabobs.
Remember those giant golden rings in Sonic 3 that transported our blue spikey hero to Bonus levels? Well they're back... Once Sonic goes through one of those giant rings, its a psychedelic trip through memory lane...
Hopefully someone out there will enjoy the video and get inspired to pick up their Sega Genesis once again and play through one of the best video game series (at least while it was on the Genesis) ever.
