4.0 out of 5 stars Good, addictive fun but room for improvement, 4 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Sonic Unleashed (PS2) (Video Game)
Do you remember the days when you could just plug in a sonic game and instantly blast away? Well sadly those days are over. When you begin this game there are so many cut scenes to get through and actual Sonic levels are few and far between. Instead you will find yourself talking to people in the village which is irritatingly boring and pointless or playing one of the many night levels where you play as Sonic after dark when he has transformed into a werewolf. I found myself getting frustrated as all I wanted to do was play as Sonic and blast my way through a level.

However, I eventually found myself getting used to the night levels as they are also good fun. Whereas the Sonic levels are all about speed, here you get a chance to stroll through the levels, defeat baddies and solve puzzles. A bit like Tomb Raider for kids. It kind of reminds me of the early Sonic games when it wasn't all about speed and you actually had to think about what you are doing. Every so often you will have to defeat a batch of demons and goolies in order to move on, unfortunately this does get a bit tedious after a while. The controls can also be a bit tricky and frustrating in these levels, especially when jumping platforms.

When you do eventually get to play as Sonic, the levels are just amazing. They've finally got it right. It is very fast and there are lots of different routes to take. It's nice that Sonic is keeping in touch with it's past, as it's great going into 2D every so often and getting the old distinctive chiming when you collect rings! Unfortunately, there just isn't enough Sonic levels.

This game is good fun and very addictive, probably the best Sonic game I have played for a number of years. It has improved heaps since Sonic Heroes. But there is still room for improvement, as there is more werewolf levels than Sonic levels! Advice for the next game - cut the village and the werewolf stuff and have a more devoted Sonic game, especially now the new hedgehog engine has improved things terrificly!
