Sonic rush was the first Nintendo DS title for the sonic series. It's a good game and it has it's strong points but there are a couple of low points. So let's go over each element of the game and see how it did. (P.S i will be rating each part from 1-5)
Story- while it isn't going to win any best of awards, it's simple enough to follow to not get confused. 3/5
Gameplay- this is by far the best aspect of the game. It's fast paced and fun, just what you would expect from a sonic game. 4.5/5
Graphics- the graphics are great! It's bright and colorful and has a nice 3D flourish. Overall it's great and pretty awesome for DS quality. 4/5
Placement- Alright, this may sound weird but I to address it. (P.S by placement I mean the placement of obstacles and enemies.) This game does a pretty bad job of this. A sonic game's theme is speed right? Right, but because of this game's placement problems you can't most of the time because you have to pay attention to every little detail or you'll be falling to your death. Overall, this games placement is awful. 1/5
Music- Okay, this is kind of a personal note but still. Don't get the music is good and it has a good beat, but it's a bit to abstract for my taste. But like I said, that's just personal opinion. Overall, the music was good. 3.5/5
Side note: Bosses- The bosses were... decent at best. They ranged from about easy to cheap. There were one or two exceptions but still, it's not this games shining factor. 2.5/5
Ending: this game is a good addition to the sonic franchise. Great graphics and gameplay, okay story and solid music. However this games placement is terrible and the bosses were...meh. BUT,if you have a good eye or hand reflexes... or simply don't mind it you can get past that.
Overall (don't I saound like a broken record) this a great sonic game that any fan should pick up.

This is a good game but its just a another classic sonic game with modern sonic though....but the songs go with it and its really fun if you play as blaze cause you get to throw fire at the bad guys a few levels are really colerful and it distracts you but other than that is fun
