I have liked Sonic the Hedgehog since the Sega Genesis, so I have played a lot of his games over the years. Personally, I like that this game brought back the adventure zone system of Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast. I also like the game play and how you can play as some of the supporting characters as well.
The main problem I had with this game was that you had to have a lot of time on your hands to play, because the game has to load stuff every time you accept a task from someone or go to another part of the exploration area.
Except for the constant loading, I kinda like this game
I have only played the first level of sonic's story but this game looks pretty good I'm not sure about the silver's story though it looks kinda boring . But shadow and sonic's story looks awesome trust me this game is not as bad as you think. At least try it
Whenever a new game system comes out, long load times are commonplace. Game developers just haven't quite figured out how to work the new hardware, so load times are long. And the one franchise that suffers this the most is Sonic the Hedgehog. As I see it, Sonic's just too fast for a new system. And it really shows here. Horrendous load times plague this "fast-paced" game. Honestly, now, this game actually LAGS during basic, non-online gameplay. It's hard to think of Sonic as the world's fastest hedgehog when he and his world randomly freeze in midair for a moment. 3D Sonic games have just gotten worse from the start. His colorful, utterly useless cast of friends is still here--furry mammels like Tails and Knuckles continue to annoy. The other main characters, Shadow and Silver, offer some alternative from Sonic's fast-paced, hard-to-control stages, though. I did find Silver's stages to be quite fun, but Shadow offers the same gameplay seen in the last-generation game named after him. But honestly, whatever happened to the 2D Sonic games with no story and all action? Those were the days... It's a shame, really, that Sega decided to put this game on the PS3 right now. It's a much better game on the Xbox 360, but only because Sega has had some time to learn that system. They should have waited a year on the PS3. Oh, well, I guess I'll just check out the Wii's Secret Rings.
