Glitches

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that the music is possibly the best i've ever heard in a sonic game, (especially kingdom valley!) but the gameplay was by far the worst i've ever seen in a sonic game! the gameplay would not be half bad (at least in sonics case) if there weren't so many glitches! This game is nearly unplayable, and if you try to play it, you'll be wanting to throw you're controller out the window.

was this supposed to be this bad?

  • Summary: I'm just going to give credit to the only good thing in this game right now: this has good cg, but that's all covered up in long loads, uninspired levels (you can't control when you run through rings), lacking appeal, and a bad open world where you don't get help finding what you need to do.

Grat game but worse mechanics

spunker , GameStop

  • Summary: This game has a great story to it but does get mixed at times. The bad part and annoying one too is the loading time for just a 5 sec scene, even to do a quest takes too freaking long. What I don't like about the game is the bugs that it still has. If you don't pay attention to the area you will die out of nowhere. I'm a sonic fan but this is the worse game Sega has made, Sonic Unleashed is way better than this game.

A Good... Loading Screen

Kolton , GameStop
6 April 2011
  • Summary: The game's gameplay isn't as bad as everyone says it is but the main reason I rated it so low is because of the nonstop loading screens. They decide to load for 5 minutes just to give you instructions on a quest and then they send you into another long, dreaded loading screen. The graphics are pretty good except they do lose the original sonic feel by making both too many humans and too realistic humans.

Sonic the Hedgehog PS3

  • Summary: I was very disappointed in this game. There are alot of glitches, and it lacks any of the classic gameplay of the Genesis era. The controls are very sluggish and the camera angles can be very frustrating. I did not enjoy this game as much as I thought I would. It brings shame to the series. The designers were wrong to try and put a puzzle/story element into the game; it's just not what sonic is supposed to be.

not our favorite

  • Summary: We loved the sonic from the old sega system. It was more 2d. This new one is too fast. It's very difficult to go through the levels. It reminded me of a pinball game, where a lot of the time, you just go where the buzzers shoot you; only sometimes able to go in the direction you actually want. We actually got rid of this one. The graphics are pretty good, but I wouldn't recommend buying before trying it out first at a rental place.

Stay away. You have been warned!

  • Summary: If you read through the net, you will find very similiar comments on this game regardless of the platform. 95% of the reviews for this game are bad. A few personal comments. While the CGI for the crossover scenes between levels are decent (not that great but ok), the graphics during the game play is dissapointing. The basic game play is aweful too.

Not at all what I expected OR hoped for !!

Brian Harris "briguy700", Amazon

  • Summary: I have to say, that when I first put this game in my PS3 that my disappointment was immediate. The graphics, for what one would expect on the PS3 are very underwhelming. After playing games like Call of Duty 3 and seeing some of what PS3 is capable of, it is very disappointing to see PS2 level (at best) graphics in a game that costs the same as Call of Duty 3. The initial levels are boring and dull and do not suck you into the game at all.

Do not buy

Exen, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is, in a nutshell, unfinished. The core of the game is flawed because not enough time was spent on programming. The long load times are not an exaggeration, go to youtube and search for sonic load times. The video's are not doctored, it will really take 5 minutes to do a mission which requires 1 minute of play. And the worst part is many of these glitches and load times could have been fixed. Easily.

SONIC NEEDS WORK!

  • Summary: Every time a new Sonic game is announced, gamers take notice. We desperately want it to be good so we can relive the glory days of the Mario vs. Sonic / Nintendo vs. Sega wars of the early 90’s, but for the last five years or so we have been disappointed when the game finally arrived. Sonic’s next-gen debut is no different.
