I'm a huge Sega fan, but after being burned on both PSU and Sonic, I'm going to hang back and wait for the reviews on this one.


I feel the same. SEGA took two great franchies (IMO) - Sonic Adventure 1/2 & Phantasy Star Online - and completely drove them into the ground with nextgen Sonic and PSU. Will wait for reviews as well on this one.

Add another for waiting for those reviews, I want to believe but, I . . . I just can't.

2 + 3 become major problems if you wind up dying at the game's hand. There was certain stages where after the third checkpoint (around 11 minutes into a stage) they would start you off with the camera looking at your front, they would then "launch" Sonic into a running start... doesn't sound to bad when you think about it, but on one particular stage (a broken highway) they would launch you forward towards a rail (you hit it the minute the camera goes to the normal view). If you even so much as tap the control stick while your being launched you will fly over the edge of the highway and die. I wound up getting launch off the level five times and I lost all 11 minutes of my progress into the stage because of a broken camera. Not fun.

Pardon my ignorance--- but wasn't what you just said a review? Or was this on a different game? ;-)

For a lot of us, Sonic Adventure and Phantasy Star Online WERE the games that ran the series into the ground. (Although for the time I actually did enjoy Sonic Adventure 1.)

If anyone else is sitting on some credit like me, the 360 version of Unleashed is 49.99 at Gamestop also. Do the whole schtick where you buy the 360 version of Orange Box and Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga with Cellfire to trade in as part of the trade 2 and get a game for 20 bucks for a game on the list, such as Gears of War 2. Get a gift receipt with it and you can return it for Sonic Unleashed later on. It'll cost you 35ish.


Could you explain this process in greater detail? I use cellfire.

And to the rest of you. Sonic adventure 1 and 2, were great games weren't they?

Sonic Heroes, now there is a BAD game.

Or do you miss the old fashioned fast paced running sonic games???

Well looks like the sonic cycle is still going strong. Reviews are pouring in and as expected, hopes of "Sonic's triumphant return" are dashed once again. The game is bad across all platforms.

Well I guess we can be happy that the game is bad instead of being awful like its overhyped predecessor Sonic the Hedgehog reboot.

Those reviews aren't that bad. In the IGN review, the guy says that he really loved the daytime levels. 7.2 isn't bad at all compared to what the last Sonic game got :-P

Yeah, I was expecting this game to get in the 7s. Glad I was right. Honestly, there's nothing wrong with a 7 game. It's a foundation for them to build on and improve for the sequel.

Darn those night time levels. 7s aren't enough to make me bite. Too much already to keep me occupied. I just really wanted Sonic to make a come back. They've had so much time, and so many sequels, to improve, I can't help but wonder if they'll ever get it right.

The moment they said the words werehog and Dimps is when this game stopped becoming "Sonic's triumphant return".


And to the rest of you. Sonic adventure 1 and 2, were great games weren't they?

Sonic Heroes, now there is a BAD game.


I liked both Adventure 1 and Heroes. A lot actually (not so much Adventure 2). I 100% Adventure last week, so I know its not nostalgia; my main gripes being the glitches and Big's suck ass fishing.

I like where this thread is headed. This board is long over due for a Sonic discussion. So how about that deal?
Let me show you them.

Yeah, I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked Heroes. Sonic Heroes took the very important step backwards (which was a step forwards in itself) was taking Sonic back to the non-human world and focusing on creating terrific stages. It really felt like they looked at the roots of the Sonic series and created something that we would like.
And... thecameraandvoiceactingwasshitty. But Sonic Heroes was overal very good!

I wouldn't toss this game away yet.

Anyone who has played the last three sonic iterations (Shadow, Sonic 2006, and Secret Rings) knows what to expect how bad these games can be.

Already, this one outshines the previous three.

Fact: Did you know Ninja Gaiden was for Xbox 1? A lot of gamers do not know. Don't trust me? Go to stores like Target and Wal-mart and ask.

Dimps only worked on the daytime sections of the Wii version. You can thank Sonic Team for the rest of the game.

Yes. I'm surprised most people don't see this. Still had Adventure-type flaws of camera and stupid deaths, but it wasn't the shit fest most people make it out to be.

Dimps only worked on the daytime sections of the Wii version. You can thank Sonic Team for the rest of the game.


Yup, my beef is with the daytime levels. There was an interview somewhere about this game in which half of what lead designer has to say epitomizes what I think is wrong with this series.
Let me show you them.

This is a pretty bad deal, because no matter what the price is, you're still getting a Sonic game.

I grabbed it on PS2 yesterday, because I'm too impatient to wait for the PS3 version (still getting that though), and it's not a bad game at all. It has mild adventuring aspects, but the daytime levels really are awesome.

There have been more night time than daytime levels right now, which is disappointing, but the night time levels aren't terrible. They play like a not half bad beat em up. Not something that belongs in a Sonic game really, but not something that's terrible either.

Yeah, I agree with the other people. Sonic Team really has no concept of how to do a Sonic team, mostly because just about everyone in Sonic Team involved in Sonic originally is gone. The hate on Dimps is unwarranted because they, at the very least, do something average, if not legitimately good (those being Sonic Advance 1 and Sonic Rush, and as we've seen the Daytime portions)

This is a pretty bad deal, because no matter what the price is, you're still getting a Sonic game.

I LOVE Heroes. I save it and Terminator until after I finish my other shows though (since I love them best), but the only real issue I've had with the series so far was just because of the writer's strike, where they built up all this setup and then sort of just had to blow it all real fast (except maybe not, based on what just happened at the end of the season 3 episode I'm on).

Still can't believe we get a full blown real super hero show on network TV! (Or Terminator, or...)
