Wow. I have no played a game this bad. Maybe they should have spent as but time in the game play as in the graphics. I was blown away by the opening but that was the climax. The graphics are the only holding this game from a 1. Bad camera angle. loading after everything. no save points causing you to all the way back to the beginning. A disgrace to the Sonic i remember, and to think had to have it right when it can out. I could not play it longer then an hour..
Very slow to get going, which is not good for a sonic game. Graphics are pretty good on a 1080p tv, but not spectacular. The game does have some good length to it but not much depth. Game play is much the same throughout with a couple of snowboarding levels to spice it up a little. Playing with Silver and other characters keeps it interesting. Overall its just not a full filling game.
I grew up on sonic, until now I had great memories of the games. This changed everything, the developers really lost the great feel that the original games captured; the speed, uh, and oh yea the speed. Maybe I've just grown out of the game, or maybe its the fact that this particular sonic is more like an rpg, whatever it might be I sure as heck don't want to run around as a blue hedgehog just to speak to people on the map and buy some new shoes. What I want to do is fly by at a break neck pace and bounce of some springs while catching golden rings. (In writing it almost seems that the new sonic would be a nice evolution of the series, but trust me it's not.) If you want to tarnish your wonderful memories of the original sonic games rent this one, if not, don't rent this game IT'S NOT WORTH THE SHIPPING TIME, trust me.
