This review is from: Sonic the Hedgehog (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I'll get this out of the way... this game isn't that bad, there are actually people defending it out there and i'm suprised that a none sold too well PS3 version is selling dirt cheap and yet the platinum making 360 version is going for much higher.
if you admire story, then this might satisfy you if Generations left oyu with too many unanswered questions. but ti does have extreme flaws, especially in it's characters... or character. you already know her name. even mentioning the kiss should be outlawed.
and the gameplay? well i personally only really like the game for it's Shadow gameplay: button mashing slow paced veichular platforming. at least it improves over STH by removing the guns. Sonic's gameplay is standard platformign with one or two gimmicks thrown in (for better or for worse. if you ever get the chance to replay a level with a snowboard... don't take it. you'll thank me later) tht is slower than normal games. with i actually kind of prefer.
And Silver's telekinesis puzzle based gameplay works for the most part. his first level in the Jungle will be scratching your head (i can guarantee it) and his desert level can go straight to hell.
the graphics are permissable, this was 2006, when consoles the likes of the Camecube were beign produced, and no ill's can be said of the music. i find it better than generations massive slog of half-baked remixes with the one completely forgettable final boss theme. THIS final boss theme on the other hand is so epic, so pulse pounding and so well crafted that the only explanation for this game's terribleness is that the game was originally planned to be a Soundtrack Album but Sega demanded it be a game.
and the difficulty does get progressive...ly annoying. i haven't finished the game because of the abnormally questionable section at the end of the world that is impossible to NOT ragequit from. but youtube videos (hello Clement) have provided me with the ending at it's... ok at the least.
unless you have a ridonculolusly huge amount of time on you're hand, little perception of anger or maybe your addicted to something this game might satisfy you. it definatly won't make you feel anything if you're a sonic fan.
