Very Good

Fun but can get old quick

Overall a fun game, and it is better in multi player mode than in solo mode. the controls are pretty easy to pick up for the most part, and in general the games can be fun, but it is not like a wow kinda game. After a while all the motions begin to feel the same and if not playing against others can get boring quickly.

One point I do like about the game though, is that it really is a workout. If you play some of the track events for even just 30 mins. you will be a little out of breathe by the end. A fun rental but not sure about a buy.

The Best Game Ever!!!

Don't listen to any one else who thinks negative
about this awesome game! Personally, I am a huge
sonic fan, and I recommend this game 100%. The
characters are cool, and the graphics are way better than any other Wii game I've played! The
coolest part is 2-P mode where you can use up to
4 characters. Ranking your high scores on wifi is pretty encouraging too. The only reason I ranked it a 9, was because there is not as much as events as I expected. The replays are cool ( especially running events ) but it doesn't show the whole
replay. Otherwise, it's a great game and you should definitely try it out!

Rated E for Everyone is a joke

There are great graphics and a lot of options on this game but it's quite overwhelming. The instructions are too much to bother with and my 5 year old and my husband both just ended up frustrated. You really have to have a lot of time and patience to sit down and enjoy this game. I guess I come from the old school where Super Mario anything used to be a little more "basic".
