Ok, before I rant about this game I will say that the art direction is good, and the graphics are stunning.
Now to talk about everything else! The story is bland, the main villain looks like he was stolen from dragon ball z, but the real reason I hate this game is the controls. In this game, sonic never stops running, and they made sonic games that did this right (Unleashed, Generations). But these levels are designed like 3D platformers that require you to stop and turn the camera at points. You move sonic by tilting the wii remote left and right, pressing 2 to jump, 1 to brake, shaking the wii remote for a homing attack, and tilting the wii remote back and pressing 2 to go in reverse. These types of controls should only be used for vehicle segments and boss fights, NOT FOR AN ENTIRE STAGE. It's a chore to go backwards or go through a 2D section, and it seems like they don't even respond half of the time. This game sucks, and I hope black knight is better.

I really hated this game... I love Sonic but this game was just terrible. Sonic is constantly running and you can't stop to get items or explore your surrounding. If you had the option to walk as well as run, this game would be much better. I sold my copy bull moose.
