Sonic Rush

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Sega has gone away from their tried and true formula with a great many of Sonic the Hedgehog games. Thankfully Sonic Rush is a return to that original triode and true formula. Eggman from another dimension comes to wreck havoc, and creates a rip in the space time continuum. Blaze the cat (an edgy character) chases after him. At a certain point in the game Blaze becomes a playable character. The action is side scrolling in a 2D fashion, and the speed is smoking.

  • Excerpt: “Sonic! He can really move! Sonic! He’s got an attitude! Sonic, he’s the fastest thing aliiiiive!” I can’t remember the last Sonic game that could be accurately described by those lyrics. Most Sonic the Hedgehog games nowadays are strangled with gimmicks, be it swords or werehogs, you can be sure they’ll throw something in there that will more than likely ruin the game for you. As compared to its predecessors, Sonic Rush contains one key difference, Sonic Rush is good .

Sonic Rush

Gaming Evolution
19 January 2007
  • Conclusion: From the first time I heard about 2D sidescrolling Sonic game coming to the Nintendo DS I had my hopes and it has not let me down. Some of the game’s visuals are a significant upgrade from the Advance games and are somewhat of a testament to what the DS can do visually with this style of graphics.

Sonic Rush

Game Over Online
28 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Sonic Rush is a slick blend of the old and the new school. At its base is the tried-and-true side-scrolling Sonic gameplay. Attached on to this base are a variety of 3D and dual-screen features that manage to add to the gameplay without losing anything. What do we end up with? A cohesive whole. The gameplay, barring a few new editions, is the same as the first Sonic game you first played a zillion years ago.

Sonic Rush

Portable Review
21 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Announced at E3 2005, Sonic Rush is one game that I’ve been waiting for - partially because it was a Sonic game, but also to see what the developers could do with the DS. Thinking back, I was wondering how the developers could use the touch screen in the game, but now I am thankful that the touch screen is barely used at all. The only instances of touch screen action are in the menus and in the bonus stages.

Sonic Rush

Project COE
15 November 2005
  • Conclusion: When it comes to value, Sonic Rush offers a respectable amount. Featuring a multitude of levels with two playable characters is great as is it, and the addition of a multiplayer mode is cool. Because of the gameplay structure, gamers could easily go through this title several times just for the sheer sake of experiencing its speed, and there are some secrets to look out for as well. There isn’t a substantial wealth of extras, but what’s there is entertaining nonetheless.

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
31 July 2007
  • Excerpt: It's fair to say that since the release of the Sega Dreamcast back in 1999, pretty much all the games featuring Sonic the Hedgehog have ranged from the average (Sonic Adventure) to - more recently - the heartbreakingly awful (Sonic The Hedgehog on the Xbox 360). The Sega hero's transition from 2D to 3D has certainly not been as smooth as Mario's was in his N64 days, and the only games of any worth in the past seven or eight years were the three Sonic Advance titles on...
