Sonic and the Secret Rings
19 September 2014
Excerpt: The face of SEGA has returned on the revolutionary Wii console in Sonic and the Secret Rings that returns the franchise to its original humble beginnings with classic high speed gameplay and stunning 21st century graphics.
Excerpt: Sonic and the Secret Rings is Sega’s first Sonic video game designed specifically for the Nintendo Wii. The control scheme level design, and extras exhibit that quite well. Players hold the Wii Remote sideways, lower the left side to go left, and lower the right side to go right.

Excerpt: It’s been eight years since I really enjoyed playing a new Sonic the Hedgehog game, and after having played Sonic and the Secret Rings , I must sadly report that this is still the case.

There's no denying the fact that Sonic and the Secret Rings looked to be the game that would propel Sonic back into the limelight, finally delivering a 3D experience that would rival the good old 2D platformers. And it's on the Wii, the console that is being hailed as the saviour of the industry by many people who have grown tired of the endless graphics race.
Conclusion: The Umbrella Chronicles is a deviation in gameplay from other Resident Evil games, providing a fresh and above average gaming experience for fans of the series. The controls are well implemented, with a very limited amount of “wand waving”. The game certainly will provide a considerable challenge for most gamers and should be considered if you’re in the market for a multiplayer game to play with a friend.
Excerpt: Sonic is back with a whole new adventure on the Wii. We’ve seen what the PS3 and 360 version spawned. Let’s see if Sonic Team has graced Wii owners with a worthy game to add to the Sonic legacy or doom like it’s HD brothers.
