Rated 10 out of 10 by The Ringmaster The Most unexpected Thriller Ever
This game series comes from a long history great games. And this one, nearly topped them all. The concept to have Sonic transform into different forms at different times of day. Genius. This is by far the best way any game used the idea of a werewolf in their game. Other than that the controls are simple, easy to learn. And awesome to use. The game itself is still based on the neverending struggle between Sonic and Eggman. This time though, Sonic's different. Sonic is Unleashed. The game itself is made up of many different features. Its like Zelda in a way. You have village missions where you go around exploring and asking people. Then you have day stages as regular sonic, night stages as Unleashed Sonic, and Boss Battles for both. The only annoying thing is that the game has a long autosave feature that has its own screen and prevents play. really annoying, but worth the wait. This game is worth playing, even just a rental. Play it, right now!
Rated 9 out of 10 by firstname.lastname@example.org not as good as i wanted but still way past cool
the game is a let-down yes (much like most recent sonic games) but that doen't mean it's no good. in fact this is my all time favorite game! but cmon it's sonic and you expect him to deliver speed. and he does...half the time! the day levels have sonic blasting through enemies and running around loops and the new speed boosts. eight kinds of fun those day levels:) however the werehog levels as cool as they may sound are not! sonic exchanges his speed for power and the ability to stretch his arms. as you progress the night levels get better with combos you unlock. but they seem to last forever and slow the game down literally:( the graphics are solid espescially in the opening cinema! however i would have liked to see more characters than:sonic,tails,amy,and chip. chip is kinda annoying but he kinda sets the game up for it's final boss dark gaia. the boss levels are the best EVER! but the final boss is very hard it took me a day to beat it. bottom line: a blast from start to finish sonic fans will enjoy it and i highly reccomend you pick it up;)
Rated 9 out of 10 by Stephen SaintFelix Great game
well its not what i would expect from a common sonic game but its very good. got to love the graphics especially for a ps2, like the opening scene of the game just beautiful. but i personally prefer the day time stages because of what sonic is known for speed. I guess the ware hog is cool but got to love the blue hedgehog. this also has a good and stable storyline. i always heard that this game was not something to drool all over but hey my girl Friend got for me so i was like "hey whats the Harm". It turned out to be a great game. Now the games challenge is in the middle to me because through some stages i breeze through them well... all. and some i might have to die a few times until i finally get it night and day. Now one thing that really catches my attention is that they still have recent games for the ps2,and i' am a true sonic fan since i was 5. so i really recommend this game. HAVE FUN!!!!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Josh M The Absolute WORST sonic game ever made!
Let me just spit this out right now stop buying sonic games after sonic riders zero gravity. this includes sonic and the secret rings and after. I originally bought this game thinking it was gonna be the greatest sonic game ever made... BIG BIG MISTAKE! Just warning you, Sonic + Werehog = Oil + Water. What they don't show you on the trailer is the werehog parts of sonic unleashed, its EXTREMELY repetitive and a little annoying overtime. I'm glad i was able to trade it in for some credit. Why is Sega Doing this to Sonic!? I think segas latest sonic games have been destroying the blue hedgehogs reputation completely, you just don't feel that speed rush like you do in the older sonic games. My Favorite sonic game is Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, that's where i feel like I'm going at super sonic speed when controlling sonic. To conclude my opinion, DONT WASTE YOUR $$$ ON THIS ONE FOR SURE!
Rated 1 out of 10 by GameLover CRAP UNLEASHED!!!!
A lot of people like thE game and honestly, I don't know why! the only part that I actually liked was when you play with normal Sonic, that's the only thing that's good because everything else sucks! for example that werehog business it's just so stupid! it was bad to begin with, not only is it boring to play with that werehog, but it's also, not the Sonic I know, speaking of BORING! you have to talk to people in order to advance to the next level, now that's beyond boring! and they have nothing interesting to say! and what's with that other bull they did with normal Sonic, is that afters beating the first fun level with him you have to run through that exact level all over again and you now have to do something like "get 150 rings" also that new character "Chip" he's the stupidest character EVER! overall most of this game is just boring and no one should play this game!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Was a naruto fan I can go with this
This was a pretty good game but i have a couple problems with it. One was the camera. Most of the sonic games i've played let you move the camera but not this one. Some times i'd turn a corner and get attacked without being able to move the camera. i ended up dying every time except once where I was lucky. Next is when you're the werehog. Why don't they let you just run on all fours automatically instead of, "tap twice in the same direction to move faster." That would be nice. Third, when you're the werehog for my controller it didnt pick up when i tried to attack so i got hit several times before hitting back. The music is pretty good. Even though I miss the rock music/techno music it deserves a 10. Especially the first level, apotos windmill isle. I've been trying to find it. Lastly, you might prefer the wii version of this game because i think it's more fun.
Rated 6 out of 10 by me mw Do You like new sonic games or not?
If you like old sonic games and not the new ones dont even bother with this one, it will make you cry for weeks. BUT if you are like me and enjoy some of the new sonic games, this one was ok. The graphics were cool. One thing that annoys me though is how sonic talks out of the side of his mouth. Doesnt make sense to me. But it is no were near is as bad as sonic adventure battle2 for ngc. if you have never played it, dont, but if you have you are probably laughing on the ground peing you pants. (back to sonic unleashed) The story lone was kinda neat and it had a few twists and turns. The day levels when you play as sonic are fun, my favorite part of the game is the drift. Now the night levels..... (sigh).... it was probably one of the worst button mashers I have ever played. and they are required. They were fun at first but after i beet the game i found myself only replaying the day levels. I think it is weard that they called sonics night for a warehog. dorky right? I am just glad that they never call it that in the game it just makes you laugh in the instruction book. so play it if you want to play it go ahead.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DJ Very Good but...................
There are only two problems with it,One of them is that you can't skip cutscenes.So when one comes up,you might as well get comfortable.The only other thing is that you can't control the camera.This gets espcially annoying when you're fighting.The story is kind of interseting.Earth has been split into pieces and Sonic must find a way to put it back together.Of course, Eggman is behind it.The controls are ok.The sound is very good.The graphics are a little over average for the PS2.So they are pretty good.Some of the missions can be challenging but they aren't very hard at all.It is fairly long game.Since you have 8 different locations to visit,there are also quite a few missions to do so it may keep you busy depending on how long you play it each day.Overall,this is one of my favorite PS2 games.I would recommend it to anyone.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gamelover2ks Best Sonic Game Ever
This game is the best of the sonic games because it has good graphics and its not like a regular sonic games it tells you of the two sides of sonic the regular and the beast. The graphics are okay but its a fun game that has action and thrill. The other good sonic games like sonic adventure battle 2 and sonic heros arent as good as this one because its not just the classic stuff but still don't get me wrong the classics are pretty good but they dont compare to this. I would reccomend this to all people especially the sonic lovers because if you don't like sonic games this games will change your mind. Too bad it doesnt last that long like bully: scholarship edition but its still long. This is the best sonic game and its cheap you don't have to get it expensive like with the other consoles because it has the same good graphics.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Soniclover85 Sweet game!!!
I just got the game and I'm already loving it. The transformation between sonic and werehog sonic is pretty awesome, it's different from any other sonic game I've ever played for ps2. I recommend all true sonic lovers to buy this game, it really is worth buying. If you don't take my word for it then just try it out. I've spent 12 hours playing it so far, that's how awesome it is. There are different in it and the bosses are pretty awesome. The graphics are amazing, the challenges are awesome, the whole game is just awesome and like the best game I have ever played in a pretty long time. I hope they make another sonic game as good as this one soon, they are good at what they do. I give this game a 10 out of 10 for everything. I know after I'm done writing this I'm gonna get back to playing the game.
