It sucked!
Ever time a new sonic game comes out I always play, it give a chance... Im hoping that Sonic team get it right. This game was poorly made, as if the game wasnt finished (thank god I rented it and not bought it). Loading screen ruined it, voice acting bad, game play... the worst! It hurst me to write this because Im such a fan I got Sonic Battle for the GBA and loved that... I even liked Sonic Shuffle... but this.. I dont even want to say anything else about this. I opened it, put it in my 360, play for 45 mins ( most was loading screen), took it out and put it back in the envelope and sent it back. SUCKS!!!!!

A lot of potential, not very fun

I am a huge fan of the Sega Genesis Sonic series and after playing the XBLA old-school sonic, I wanted to try the next-gen version. I was sadly disappointed. The camera view/perspective was horrible, I constantly had problems trying to see where I was going. And when trying to go through various rings in a timed race, having a very bad camera angle makes it impossible.
Being as it came out in 2006, when the xbox360 was still young, the game has potential but falls short. The opening CG sequence is amazing. It is one of the best that I have seen and beautifully rendered. The town of Soleanna looks a lot like Walt Disney World's Epcot's World showcase lagoon.
I gave the game a 3 because I played for only one day as the camera was horrible. I constantly had to stop sonic and adjust the camera, which resulted in slower times and was very annoying. I have hopes that these early issues will be resolved for the next sonic volume.

Do you hear that sound? That is the sound of thousands of Sonic fans crying out and screaming in frustration over this game. I could go into great detail but this game doesn't even warrant the time. First off, it's a sonic game, yet it is slow, second the level designs are horrible and frusteration, you will constantly run off ledges (or through the floor or even the top of a loop in the worst cases) The controls are jumpy and impresise and the voice acting is attrocious. You will spend at least 25% of the time you play this game getting frusterated you will spend 70% of the rest of the experience on loading screens. NO game has EVER had as many loading screens as this one, it is not an exateration that you spend half of the games full playtime waiting for it to load. On a brighter note, this game does have some excellent music, so you'll actually enjoy the last 5% of what makes up this horrible game letting sonic and friends sit still while you listen to some awesome tunes, if you can find a soundtrack, buy it and save yourself some pain. The music is the only reason I gave this a 2 instead of the 1 that it really deserves. AVOID THIS GAME.
