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.

Sound: No annoying voices! Killer guitar riffs!
Playability: Phantom Hourglass navigation works well and the active battle system keeps you engaged
Entertainment: Sonic fans can hold their heads high once again

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.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Some people went ahead and claimed this game as a match made in heaven from the first day it was announced. I mean, what is there to hate? You have a highly acclaimed developer in BioWare handling the development of a game based on a lovable superstar mascot, so how exactly can things go wrong?
Excerpt: Name: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood Genre: RPG Platform: Nintendo DS When Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood was first announced, my reaction was mixed. On the one hand, Sonic games in recent years have been less than stellar; in fact, I hadn’t played a game in the series since the 16-bit era.
Excerpt: At long last one of the most anticipated portable RPGs arrives on DS. Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood comes to us fresh from the hands of Bioware (Mass Effect, Jade Empire), and though the developers have a AAA pedigree in the world of gaming, many have wondered if this Sonic RPG was merely a last-ditch effort by SEGA to once again bring the hedgehog back to respectability.
