First of all, this is the 1st sonic game I've played since the genesis days, and overall game play and graphics wise, the game stood out. The game works well with the wii remote, the only thing I dislike about the wii remote is to make sonic run faster you have to roll the remote away from you, but roll it too much and sonic will start running backwards on you. Another thing that bugged me was the story, the actual story is well written besides the horrible acting. But the way the game plays out the story, if you want to skip the story and just play the game, you can't, and some of these story cut scenes are over 5 mins long so you are trapped in a slow moving on story at the beginning where most gamers will want to sleep. Anyways, after doing about 8 training missions to get used to the controls the story beings and you are thrown into the desert. I liked this level because it was very fast paced. So my first next-gen sonic game went well, but a lot of things could have been seriously worked on. its worth a rent especially if you are a fan of the sonic series. I give it a 7.2/10
I wasn't expecting this from a Sonic game. I expected a bit more thrill but i just didn't care to come back for more. The control mechanics or i guess the game play i don't know which, they were pretty annoying at times. If i wasn't paying attention to what was happening on screen i would probably fall off and have to start over. The Music is so annoying!! The menus are boring and there are challenges all over the place i don't know which one to do. The story isn't even animated and frankly doesn't even seem to make any impact with the game at all. What is the story even doing there?? The game has it's fun points but i found no interesting in keeping this game very long so i'm glad i rented it. Kids might like it. I just simply don't care for this game... very forgetable. Note: I didn't play this game past the second world so my rating is mainly a first impression so i don't know if it gets better i just know it didn't grab me enough for me to want to find out.
Wow. No wonder Sega went out of business. This is quite possible the worst game I've played in some time. Clearly, the Sonic team didn't quite grasp the whole "Wii remote" thing. They make you use the 1 & 2 buttons instead of the A & B. Very awkward. And the cheesy 1990s pop-punk song is still giving me a headache.
