Sonic Rivals

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: As far as I am concerned Sonic Rivals is a failure on the Playstation Portable (PSP). The score received may be a passing grade, but only because only one major area was a dismal failure. The section of game play is one of the more important sections (not as important as Family Friendly Factor). I like Sonic games, so it is a major brain freeze to have to dislike a Sonic video game.

Sonic Rivals Review

  • Excerpt: When I found out I'd be reviewing Sonic Rivals I immediately paid the nearest available gypsy to sharpen my favourite knives in readiness for a critical slashing not seen since Tom's review of the terrible Xbox 360 Sonic game. Initially, my fears seemed well founded too, as the opening level is way too hard and seems brutally unfair. Yet, once I started to progress through the stages, the strangest thing happened, I began to really enjoy myself.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Despite showing promise and being fun at times, Sonic Rivals is still a bit of a let down. Seeing as Sonic is now 15 years old this is an especially sad indictment. This is no rival to the original titles and so the wait for a great Sonic title begins yet again.

  • Pros: Great sense of speed, Bright, colorful stages with plenty of thrilling loops, corkscrews, and jumps, Good music
  • Cons: The trial-and-error process required to pass each stage is very tedious, Occasionally frustrating level design, Not many stages

  • Conclusion: The long overdue return to 2D gameplay is more than welcome, but this hasn’t turned out to be as much fun as it ought to have been. Holding right on the D-pad just gets boring before long. And why’s Sonic gone and got all rude?

  • Conclusion: In the end, Sonic Rivals is a game that has a lot of potential but it unfortunately doesn’t manage to capitalize on this. Sonic Rivals is a game that you will find some enjoyment in playing, but it just doesn’t have that depth to make you want to continue playing it for long periods of time. The game looks great, but the gameplay just doesn’t have enough to bring it to a level that keeps it enjoyable for extended periods of time.

Sonic Rivals PSP Review

DarkZero
2 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Ah Sonic, you really need to decide who’s your friend and who isn’t. From Heroes and Adventure 2, where you teamed up with characters, to Rivals where you’re fighting the very same characters. What’s your problem? There really can’t be much of a story line to a racing game, but it’s always fun to follow the ones that try. So it seems that this time around, everyone’s after Eggman. But the race is on to see who can get to him first.
