Summary: The music is...horrible. It's got a good storyline, the message is clear, and it brings back memories of old Sonic games. The Swatbots are here too, and it's got some iffy graphics. It says To Be Continued, but obviously it never got a sequel.
Summary: If your looking for sonic to be runnig around and fighting egg man stuff like sonic advance, sonic rush, and sonic x the cartoon then this is not for you. trust me I thought the same thing when I bought this game, its too much like final fantasy games.
Summary: I really liked the concept of an RPG Sonic game, but like most game reviewers are saying new Sonic games just aren't what they used to be. I played this game for hours (collectively) on end but then the game really just stays the same and it gets old.
forcing a player to use the stylus is ALWAYS bad...

Summary: I love Sonic, but any Sonic fan will tell you the blue speedball hasn't been in a decent game since the Genesis. Stylus-only games are the worst. Even if you don't mind it as a control scheme, it obscures the view of the game and where you are going to some extent.
Brimming with potential, but not nearly what it could have been.

Summary: Positive: + excellent graphics + some of the POW moves are really cool + the Sonic universe is portrayed well + Negative: - dreadful camera - battle system could use some help - pretty boring - poor sound effects - annoying enemies - Big the Cat! - Sonic is in desperate need of a great game.
Summary: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood was a game much anticipated by the fanbase, seeing how it was developed by a studio known for its expertise in developing RPGs on PCs. Well, the game is out in North America as of yesterday, so how is it? To start on a positive note, the writing is pretty good.
A good portable RPG that is rough around the edges.

Summary: I didn't really know what to expect when firing up Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for the first time. After playing the game, though, I think I have an idea of what Bioware's pitch to Sega was in the initial meetings, "it'll be exactly like Mario RPG only with Elite Beat Agent mechanics...
Summary: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood is a solid RPG for Nintendo DS that takes a leaf out of the Kingdom Hearts, Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series'. The use of established characters like Knuckles, Sonic and Tails means you get stuck into the main plot from the off.
Excerpt: Sonic Chronicles - The Dark Brotherhood on the Nintendo DS is a clash of old and new sonic games - where you get to explore the traditional lands like Green Hill Zone but in a 3D, touch screen environment and also completely new worlds.
Pros: Great Game Play, Battles and Puzzles
Cons: Costs a lot of rings for clues to Puzzles and to rebattle if you die in battle .
