Weak

Horrid.

Anyone who seriously and thoroughly enjoys this game needs their head examined. There's 3 things that ruin it entirely, and I'll list them in signifigance:

1. Absolutely horrible soundtrack. It mainly consists of this really bad rock song that the first time you ever hear it it's somewhat annoying, but when they play it everytime you complete a mission, enter a screen, and more annoyingly: DIE, they play the same freaking song over and over!

2. Ranks up there with one of the worst storylines ever. In all my life of gaming, I have NEVER skipped a cutscene until this game. I felt like I was watching a really bad Disney sequel or something.

3. Voice acting is really incredibly bad. The voices are so annoying that it's almost as if SEGA takes pride in that fact.

Okay, I'll say one good thing about the game. If you have the component cables and play this in 480p widescreen presentation... it's easily the best looking title on the Wii. Some could mistake it as looking as Sonic on 360. The controls which many reviewers said were really frustrating didn't seem to frustrate me as much as the things I listed, so they're not a complaint from me.

Overall, beautiful graphics displaying a great sense of speed doesn't make up for the absolutely horrid cons that I listed. SEGA could have easily done something about all of them, especially the soundtrack. Save yourself the rental people unless you really plan on getting annoyed. Sonic is truly going down the drain. Perhaps if you skip all the cutscenes and play the game on mute it would be twice the experience, but nothing spectacular.

really it seems too slow when I tilt the wiimote it's not that bad but turning left to right is okay but where's the spinning like in A ball then shooting at you appoints? And it's too slow I feel like I'm walking not running I whould rather buy sonic game off of wii shop channel and buy "sonic the hedhog"(Sega) for my wii.

Well sonic has not had the best luck in past few years, but now Sonic team has woken up to realize that the can still make a good Sonic game! Now this game is far from perfect, the music makes you wana blow your ears off, and the levels you go through about 10 to 15 times depending on how you beat the levels causing for lack of originality. Also the story is quiet kiddy,and done like a book. On the god side the graphics are good, and the use of the wii remote unique. Either way you go rent or buy its a win!!!
