This game was bought for my 6 year old. He can't play it. I played it a little and it was somewhat difficult for me. But it did seem like a cool game if you spent the time to learn every move. However for small children, it's just too difficult. There are too many choices for buttons to push, etc. It didn't seem like a great game. But it seems okay.
The Wii is a new system with a unique way to control games. Unfortunately, not all games should be forced to use this new form of control. Sonic and the Secret Rings opens with a very long, very boring series of still images that make up the story intro and from there it's down hill.
The game itself is not flawed, it's the execution. What used to be a simple button press is now turned into madly shaking your controller with mixed results. "Steering" the character left and right by tilting the controller is pretty cool, targeting enemies by "shaking" the controller is really bad and gets REALLY tiring REALLY fast.
It's really too bad, I was really hoping this was going to be a good Sonic game. But with unnecessarily dramatic controls it gets real old real fast. Thank goodness for GameFly, I didn't waste money on this.
This is game monotonous. I hate the controls. I didn't like the fact that you didnt really have control of the character moving forward or his speed. He runs by himself. However the wii remote is quite responsive and the game looks pretty good. I wouldn't your time on this game.
