chronic sonic - buyer beware.....
on 13 September 2007
Oh dear. I had really high hopes for this game after playing Sonic Rush on the DS, that is a great game. Really in the spirit of the early Sonics. I read some reviews for this and decided to splash out on it. Boy, was that a bad move. By now you've probably read some other reviews which will have mentioned the frustrating controls, the boring comic book cut scenes, the sheer tedium of falling off the edge of everything because the stupid game can't tell that you've tilted the controller. (which must be one of the most un-natural movements ever) I also hate the whole idea about the power ring thing where you have to choose which special moves you take into each level, what the hell is that all about?
I could go on about the multi player mini games where I would say about half the games are uncontrollable and just the sheer lack of effort that's gone into this game, but I'm going to have to stop because I can feel my blood pressure rising.
To sum up then, I feel cheated out of the money I spent on this game. If you think you really want this game please rent it first and don't get ripped off like I did. How the hell can sega put out a game that is so clumsy and frustrating and expect people to play it is beyond me. Sonic should be about racing through levels at 1000 miles an hour. This game is certainly not that. I have given it 1 star for fun because I couldn't give it none (which it deserves) and 2 stars overall because it looks nice.
