Sonic Chronicles The Dark Brotherhood

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog has been around since the 16-bit era, and been in all kinds of video games. Sonic Chronicles The Dark Brotherhood is the first time Sonic was in a role playing game. Well known developer Bioware is the company that took on this task, and put it on the Nintendo DS. Sega deserves a lot of credit by allowing this game to be created.

Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure

Hooked Gamers
26 May 2009
  • Conclusion: The graphics in Henry Hatsworth are extremely cute, with enemies that look like they were pulled straight out of a children's cartoon and character designs that are original and likable. The environments are mostly things you've seen before, but they're designed well enough that it's forgivable. The sprite work isn't the most impressive you've seen, but it's serviceable.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

RPG LAND
13 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood had many RPG fans scratching their heads from the get-go. A Sonic RPG? Unheard of! Well, unfortunately not any more. While the game offers some neat gameplay aspects, it ends up falling short of being worthwhile.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Square-Go
1 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Sonic has fast become the black sheep of the Sega family, following some unsuccessful attempts at bringing the series into the current generation. It seems the poor wee mammal just can’t cut it in 3D so when it emerged BIOWARE, best known for their sterling role-playing titles were having a crack at making a good Sonic game, fans were a bit puzzled.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood Review

VideoGamer.com
9 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, Mass Effect and now... Sonic Chronicles? Hold up one second. Canadian RPG gods BioWare have made some of the best RPGs ever. They've also got a reputation for making hardcore RPGs. Which makes SEGA's decision to get the studio on board to make Sonic the Hedgehog's first ever role-playing game rather surprising. But a decision great for us so called core gamers, right?

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Nintendo World Report
7 February 2009
  • Summary: It's like the Sonic version of Justice League!
  • Pros: Graphics and musical score are wonderful, Platforming and world exploration are fun, Storyline incorporates tons of old and new characters
  • Cons: Battles go on for too long and level grinding is discouraged, Combat feels different, but in a disappointing, forced way, Most characters feel like dead weight

Expert Review

RPGFan
4 February 2009
  • Excerpt: What could be stranger than a Sonic RPG? A Sonic RPG developed by Bioware, a Western company. Nevertheless, it's here, and if the majority of the public can be believed, it's Sonic's last chance to show promise before he ends up in the dumpster. But in reality, things are never so black and white, and Sonic's success is no different.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood (DS)

The Review Busters
10 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood sounded like a good idea. Mario was able to spawn a few decent RPGs so why can’t Sonic? BioWare had enough time to make this the sleeper hit of the year, both on the DS and RPG genre. Chronicles relies too much on the stylus and the mini game like battles get dull after a few hours. Sonic fans should defiantly give this one a shot, just don’t expect this game to resurrect the Sonic franchise.
