awesome! you can play over & over & over again. It just never gets old! you can engage in coversation & choose what you say (it's really fun making amy mad & cheering her up in outerspace)
this game is not really a sonic game, i mean, it doesn't seem like a sonic game. in this game it's not really "AWESOME" but it is very fun & interesting. It's not about speed like most sonic games are, it's more about the conversation. ( the conversation makes it extremeley addicting) it has an EXTREMELEY awesome storyline (Unlike sonic riders) i would reccomend this game to beginners & experinced sonic fans old & young. this game is not very stressful it's just one of those games that you can sit in bed all night & play. It's extremeley awesome because (here comes the good part) knuckles get's kidnapped omega goes missin angel island gets stolen &the chaos emeralds were stolen by an extremeley strong group of aliens called the marauders. watch as the whole series of events unfolds as you play!

Fair

Good looking game weighted down with poor pacing

It was a good premise: a Sonic the Hedgehog RPG with cool quick time event combat.

To an extent, it was fairly well realized with excellent animation quality on the characters and overall good production values. The sound effects were crude stock footage, and I thought the music was a bit minimalist, but this was the only real multimedia problem.

The main problem with the game would be in the balance. Some enemies have ludicriously high defense values that cause attacks against them to do 1 pt of damage. Armor piercing or weakening attacks can help get around this, but only certain characters have these kinds of moves, and perpetually renewing their Power Points to use them is a pain.

I spent about 2 months trying to interest myself in this game, but after I reached a level with giant rock men with massive batteries of hit points which - despite my best efforts - would take a ludicrous amount of rounds to complete... well, my patience ran out.

It would have been a lot better game if combat required much less rounds to complete. The Beat Agents-inspired quick events would have been fine if I wasn't having to do them so repetitively. Better luck next game.

Way better than any other Sonic games. If it came out on Wii I would buy it in a heartbeat. Ages 7 and up. Quick loading times.
