I wanted to try this out for a long while, and I did. It wasn't as good as I expected it to be though. I would think Sonic making a RPG approach would be interesting, but this wasn't really a good approach. First of all, you will have to spend a lot of time fighting countless wild animals before fighting the first boss, a Marauder scout. I think I done everything in Green Hill besides spending too much time facing wild boars and mean armadillos. The Chao really didn't help much either in improving stats, plus the fact that there wasn't a shop to get items to recover health and power points. Only way was to fight those countless enemies that were running around. I really would not have thought that the first boss would take me 7 times to attempt to beat before I took the cartridge out of my 3DS and return it in the mail on the next day. Also, the only way to control Sonic on the field was using the stylus. Using the D-pad would have been a lot better with this. If there were to be another Sonic RPG, it should be made better than this was. There should be a shop for items to be used with the rings you collect, better controls, and less overpowering enemies, especially when you first start the game. The first boss should NEVER be overkill on a RPG. So yeah, Sonic Chronicles wasn't as good I thought it would be.
I have never played the game but i have heard a lot about it. I think these are the events leading up to the SONIC X tv series because the game ends with them crashing towards earth. Maybe i will start recording episodes of the show to see if i am right peace
