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. The Basic story is a mysterious enemy is causing havoc on Angel Island, Knuckles has been kidnapped and the Chaos Emeralds - which hold great power have been taken, only one remains. In this game you eventually have ...
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 .
Summary: I am not a big fan of RPGs, but this was fun enough. At times it can get a little repeatitive, but I feel that is how the genre is. Overall I thought it worked good enough. The graphics in the game are really mixed, some look great, other look terrible. The music, while having good tunes, is very poor in quality. Only people who like the franchise would really care about it, and even then, they would probably not pay much attention to the story.
Sonic's rpg is great but, there are better ones for the ds!

Conclusion: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood may look like a kids game with it's cartoon graphics but, trust me this is fairly hard and deep game for any gamer. For people that have played many Sonic games over the years there are lots of cool references and some surprises which will put a smile on your face. The touch screen controls work well and the battle system is well thought out.
Conclusion: Sonic the Hedgehog, whilst being one of the all time great video gaming characters has unfortunately been cast recently in sub-par games that are nothing to do with the Sonic World. Luckily this game does not do that, for anybody who was a fan of the old 2D sidescrollers like i was back in the day, you will enjoy the great refrences to the old storylines. With Bioware along side in this game creating the RPG style, the game flows well enough to enjoy it alot!

Pros: good for all ages, just old fashion computer gaming, saga classic
Cons: sometimes hard in places requires soem patience in areas
Summary: "Sonic Chronicles" plaira autant aux fans de Sonic qu'aux fans de jeux RPG, même si la durée de vie est assez courte. La jouabilité est excellente, tout comme l'histoire. Une fois qu'on est plongé dedans, on ne veut plus quitter sa DS!
