Bad

Very disappointing

Having read so many great reviews, I was expecting to have my socks knocked off. Boy, was I ever disappointed.

1) You have very little control over Sonic. He moves by himself... you simply move left/right and jump.

2) The music is nerve-racking. This annoying head-banging rock' n roll song plays as the soundtrack and you can't make it stop. Can't remember the last time a played a game that didn't give you options to lower the music.

3) The Wii remote is awesome. But--I'm very sorry--just doesn't work for Sonic. You need to have real control to enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog.

4) The cinematics are a joke. It looks someone just quickly drew some ridiculous paintings and recorded silly dialog. Genie of the ring? They can't be serious!

I'm looking for games that really maximize the Wii experience. Rather than a game that was built around the Wii, it is more of a game that tried to adapt itself to the Wii. It was a decent rental, but I will completely forget about this game in a few days.

Another Sonic Game

This is a lot better than the ones that they tried to put out in the past though. Brings back the old school play of the first sonics on the sega with updated graphics,sound, and moves. It brings back the speed and quick thinking that the older ones had. I really enjoyed this game but it got old fast. If your a huge sonic fan then this game is a must. If your not, don't even pick it up.

The Good
Brings back the old school sonic. Speed, quickness, fast thinking. I like the new moves and the controls are very good. The graphics are awesome in this game and you meet some intresting characters along the way. Brings back some good memories of the old school.

The Bad
The story is horrable but as it should be. It's a sonic game aimed at little kids. To me the game got stale really quick. Seeing you can't move on to the next level until you beat the one in front of you. Which can get irritating at times.

I think you should try it out at least once.
