I didn't experience Sonic R when it first came out but got it probably in 2005 or 2006 or so when I bought a SEGA Saturn and then I got an Action Replay 4M Plus to play Japanese games. I also got the Japanese version of Sonic R which was entirely in English. I liked the game because of its bright graphics and catchy music. Supposedly it was made by a British development team and not Japanese development team which is a shame. The Japanese SEGA developers from the 90s could have made this game so much better.
