Okay I'm a big Sonic fan.I've liked Sonic for years and I thought the games were great. This game SUCKS you here me,SUCKS.The controls are stupid and awkward, the story line is dumb,and the cutscenes are drawings.I hope SEGA somehow reads this because they need to know how bad thier game SUCKS.
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.
