I thought this game was going to be another sonic and the secret rings, poor control and gameplay, but it actually is alot like the older sonic games for gamecube where you can move wherever instead of left and right. Id recommend it if you like sonic games like me. Its one of the better ones.
If haven't played Sonic Unleashed for any system yet, I'd recommend this version. I played the 360 version first and it was nothing but frustration, so I gave the Wii version a shot. It's better in terms of gameplay, but not by much. The Werehog stages are split into 3 Act stages so you won't have to spend 20 minutes doing the whole stage, the maddening platforming is still there, but it's not as annoying on the Wii...most of the time. Attacking with the Werehog with the remote and nun chuck is fun and you can pull of about a dozen different combos, but it's hard not to use the same one over and over again. You want use a new combo, but you end up doing another old one instead, depending on each slight movement of the remote and nun chuck. Sonic the Hedgehog's stages are fast and cool, but are really short, except for the last stage, which will really get on your nerves. Overall, I recommend this version over the others because it's less frustrating and it's more fun. I actually never beat this version either though because of one Werehog part on the final stage. I like Werehog Sonic, but if he just didn't exist at all I think I'd live.
