I'm a Sonic fanatic but I've also criticized a Sonic game where it deserves it, Sonic 1-3 + Knuckles where Classics, ANY Sonic game for the gamegear needed to be locked up and ignored, Sonic Adventure and Adventure 2 battle, awsome concept graphics for 1st one where a little iffy, Shadow the hedgehog (i just personally don't like Shadow) was just to satisfy those whining shooter gamers out there.
Sonic and the Secret Rings is by far my 2nd favorite Video Game and my favorite Wii and Sonic game up to date. And I've layed ALOT of games (excluding sports and racing games).
People must remember that this came out when the Wii was still a bit iffy. The controls in the beginning are hard to get used to I'll admit that. But then again what game isn't without a flaw? Sonic and the Secret Rings allows you to do what every sonic fan wants, to run at mach 3 speed while performing acrobats. given they could have done something about the comic animation when proceeding the storyline. But once you've gotten into it it's really not all that bad, it makes the Ending and Opening much more special. People may not like him as much as his Super form, but Dark Sonic is ABSOLUTLEY ridiculous, and I mean that in a good way.
I loved the musi, and anyone who says otherwise doesn't know a true Sonic theme is. I honestly think this is a great game and the little sidequests is fun, and collecting and unlocking Music, videos and History info is awsome and worth the effort.
I honestly gave this game a 10 for a reason, because this game REALLY is good, and honestly if we all listened to everyone's littlest picky opinion then there would be no games to play/
Sonic and the Secret Ring gets a 10/10 in my book and desrves a rent
