Weak

Confusing....

So, this game is not the anti-christ as the critic reviews seem to indicate, but it's pretty weak.

Good things:
-Graphics in places are freakin' awesome..
-Speed sections are cool, and gameplay when in an action level is dope.
-Cool for new gamers (like boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife kinda deals)
-Lots of characters and they all have different attacks and such

Bad things:
-Load times weren't very well thought out, and kinda ruin what could be a cool game.
-The town does suck, but in it's defense, some of the town missions are fun and challenging
-Character dialogue is ok at times, but at other times seems like it was written by a chimp..

To be honest, this game seems like it had every intention of being designed as an awesome Sonic game, however, maybe the budget got cut on this project because there are some annoyances that take it to the toilet (character dialogue, some "filler" town missions, load times, sonic not being likable).

I'd recommend renting it if you want to check it out, because again, their are cool aspects, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing because the cool aspects are few and far between.

First off, this is NOT a game for people that don't have a ton of patience; I wouldn't recommend it.

I heard a rumor on the net that brought me to rent this game. The rumor is, simply put, that there is a loading screen every 10 seconds during gameplay. I said to myself "There's no way that true." I got the game, put it into my 360, hit start, and 10 minutes later, I had gone through 7 loading screens, which took up a good 3-4 minutes total of my gameplay, and what I did get to play had little to no entertainment value. The loading screens actually became so annoying that I gave up on it before I even got through the first level. Don't get me wrong, I usually like most Sonic games, but this one was just boring and irritating.

Wow... I honestly don't know what to say. I read the reviews and decided to take them with a grain of salt and try the game for myself. What a mistake; there are levels where the game runs for you and you steer sonic left right or jump. unfortunately the camera goes into these awkward angles and your stuck falling into the water or into a pit. In my opinion the game is almost unplayable. So disappointing i had such high hopes for this game and didn't want to really listen to all the negative feed back. Unfortunately I should have.
