Sonic Unleashed

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Who out there thought we needed a darker Sonic video game? After all there are the Shadow games. Sonic Unleashed is Sega’s attempt to make Sonic part hack and slash, and part normal action levels. Sonic has been considered family friendly for a long time.

Sonic Unleashed

8 June 2012
  • Excerpt: When it comes down to game characters, Sonic has always been at the top of my list of favorite ones. He only gets one upped by the character of characters, Duke Nukem. Even when the immensely popular Italian plumber with questionable fashion taste was upstaging Sonic, I stayed a SEGA man.

  • Conclusion: the puzzle solving fighter could be two games all to themselves. Instead, they’re neatly packed together in one game with an ongoing story and its own curiosity: who exactly is Chip and why is he so important? You’ll have to buy the game and play it through to find out.

PS2 Review: Sonic Unleashed

Video Games Reloaded
3 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Sonic Unleashed had so much potential. The Sonic sections are amazing and fun, but the Were-Hog just brings the gameplay to a halt with its clunky and slow combat.

2 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Sonic the Hedgehog has had a rough time of it lately. For the last ten years, Sega slowly changed their speedy little mascot into a shadow of its former self. It's not about exploring large green landscapes, collecting coins and saving little animals anymore - it's about biological monsters,...

Sonic Unleashed

30 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Sonic Unleashed aims to address all the concerns of gamers and fans alike by taking the venerable series back to the drawing board. Thanks to the realisation by SEGA that, in recent years, Sonic the Hedgehog has only ever really worked in a 2D space, there's a heavy emphasis on dynamic 2D to 3D...
