Excerpt: Sony’s adorable Sackboy is back, bringing the “play, create, share” mantra into LittleBigPlanet PlayStation Vita, the fourth entry in the puzzle-platforming series. The intrepid, happy-go-lucky, walking ball of yarn fits in right at home on the new handheld; taking advantage of the PS Vita's touch controls in a way that not only changes up gameplay, but also allows creative new minigames to be possible. Plus, custom level creation is more intuitive than ever.
Pros: Stephen Fry’s narration, Creative story levels, Tighter controls than the PS3 version
Cons: When you run out of story levels, Using the rear touch pad, Some of the minigames
Excerpt: For Sonic's 15th anniversary in 2006, a game simply titled Sonic the Hedgehog was developed for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The game had received negative reviews from critics such as IGN and Gametrailers. I think Sonic the Hedgehog (also known as Sonic '06) is an underrated game. Because of the fun gameplay, interesting story line, and great soundtrack, it is actually one of my favorites in the series.
Excerpt: I feel like I've written the same review numerous times since Sonic went 3D. By now we all know that Sonic hasn't had the best of times since he left the 2D plane and started exploring 3D worlds, and the same is sadly true of his PS3 debut. The problem with Sonic the Hedgehog is that we all wanted it to be a new beginning for the series and to finally show that fast 3D platforming could work.
Excerpt: When the original
Sonic the Hedgehog
was released for the Sega Genesis back in 1991, it instantly gave Sega the mascot and identity it desperately needed to compete with juggernaut Nintendo and its brand new Super Nintendo.

Summary: I like
I really do. He gave
a real run for his money. But since then the fall from grace has been bitter and this game can only be described as rock bottom.
I am hard pressed to find anybody to recommend this to, not even to die hard fans. I guess if you like pain, like glitches, or you collect games that start with “S” then this game is for you. Everybody else, stay away.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Some game franchise never seem to die. Despite countless remakes of Mario, the series always delights fans with plenty of surprises and great gameplay. However, some games really need to be put to rest after their shelf life is over. Once such game is Sonic the Hedgehog, recently released for the Playstation 3.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you hated Heroes (and we mean hated it - not pretended to hate it because it was cool to) then you're not going to get along with this. But for patient fans, once you get past the overall letdown of Sonic's first next-gen outing versus what you hoped it would be, there's just about enough here to satisfy on the whole. But, for its astonishing, easy-to-fix flaws, Sonic simply has to be marked down.
