Sonic the Hedgehog
Not as Bad as People Make It Out To Be....
I consider myself a true sonic fan, I like all of his games. Even the horrible ones and to me this is not a bad game. So where do I start:
Story: The story is a Time Paradox story that is broken down between three characters: Sonic, Shadow, and newcomer Silver. Each one has a particular role in the time scheme such as Shadow is the Past, Sonic is the Present, and Silver is the Future. The story will be explained as to why certain things are happening or will happen.
Gameplay: The gameplay is similar to the Sonic Adventure style of gameplay. You go through the level to reach the large Gold Ring. But as to what I stated before, each gameplay is different. Sonic is his regular style of gameplay as to Shadow using vehicles to get through certain things. Silver's gameplay is about using psychic powers: He can levitate, throw boxes, stop bullets from coming toward him and shooting them back at enemies, and more. Now most people complain that this game is glitch heaven...This is half the truth...I have played this game about three to four times already and have never came across a glitch. More or less, from what I have read, you have to find a glitch and exploit it. Now it may be true that you may run across one in a game, but that is very rarely in any game unless the game is very broken.
Cons: The only two things I saw that I thought needed work done on the game is: 1. There are a lot of loading screens and are long but if your patient, they won't feel too long. 2. In the cutscenes the characters wave their arms around to much. It kinda makes the game feel cheesy at times but is not enough to ruin the game.
Overall Opinion: I think that most people should buy the game used or rent just to see if they like it. If you like it enough to keep it in your collection, then you like it. If you don't, then no wasted money. That's why I'm giving this game a 9: In my opinion it is not a bad game, sure it is not one of Sonic's best, but it is not the worst.
Way better than people say!
If you don't like this game, then that's alright with me. But this game is awesome no matter what people say! Yes there are the glitches, but I didn't run into them very often. The controls are pretty good once you get use to them, The graphics are very well done especially with the CG cutscenes, and the sound, and soundtrack............. in my opinion BEST PART OF THE GAME!!!!! If you can find it on youtube, put the entire soundtrack on your favorites! You won't regret it! Get this game!
Disgrace to Sonic the Hedgehog
There are some good points in this game, I will admit. There are a few very nicely designed levels and a parts of the story are actually really well thought out. Other than that though, this game is just, I'm sorry Sonic, so, so horrible. Your original games were great, and the Sonic Adventure series were some of the best video games I've played in all my time. But this is just a flat out utter disgrace to the speedy blue hedgehog we once loved. Sonic should have never entered the human world at all, and even if he did, they should just be people to talk to in minor portions of the game like in the Adventure games. Sonic should never have any relationship, with a girl or not, romantic or not, with a human! That's not how Sonic is! He's a cartoon blue hedgehog! And that's just one aspect of the overall poor story. So many elements of the plot are just flat and bad. Oh and aside from one or two characters, the gameplay is insanely frustrating and hard. Along with painful loading times and frequent glitches, I'm sad to say I have to name Sonic '06 the worst Sonic game of all time, and these days there's a lot of competition for that title. It just shows you in every single way how bad our favorite hedgehog has gone since the days of Sonic CD. SEGA has just fallen so low these days.
Good Game Sonic Team
Everyone look at the negatives for Sonic The Hedgehog. Look at the positives for once people. The game's got good graphics. The sound tracks' are pretty good. The game-play's not the best especially with the Super-Speed Stages and using the Action Gauge. The story's okay but it's just weird, especially with the "romance" between Sonic and Princess Elise. Why would a blue hedgehog and a human be in love, but this is a world with talking animals. The games got 9 playable characters and has about 15 game-play styles. The level design is pretty good except for the level "Flame Core". In the game you are allowed to play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Silver, Amy, Blaze, Shadow, Rouge , and E-123 Omega. All control differently. Load-times aren't that big of a problem in my opinion but can be quite long like 32 seconds tops. If you think these loading times are a problem than you haven't played "The Amazing Spider-Man"on the PS3. Seriously does load times are long for The Amazing Spider-Man. But I digress. I love this game. I'd recommend this game to everyone. I just want to let you know I accept your opinion. I hope you found this review very helpful,tell your friend about it, thanks for reading, and bye.
Gonna do something people should have done already
This game needs to burn to the flames of the underworld where they deserve to be! Fire and paintballs, meet imperfection!
Horrible, broken game.
I honestly don't understand how anyone could even consider defending this game. The gameplay is broken and glitchy, the story is awful and filled to the brim with plotholes and inconsistences...the only good part about this game was the fantastic soundtrack.
ok so i told a review already but this is for kids who want the game and knows about the three charcters this is going to be hard for you. when you are done with all three stories you wont be over yet. sonic will die because of the bad shadow that broke free in shadow's story because just to release the fire monster that the princess is not suppose to relese from. so you will play as all of the seven characters at each place you have been through but you have to dodge the bad guys and the warp holes that will suck you. but after you finish all of them you will have to be as all three charcters from the story but they will be super this time. you will have to beat the boss soloaris. its kind hard but here is a tip play. as silver untill the right guard arm is destroyed i wont tell you the reat but the game is so awsome you would keep it forever for your kids when you grow up. you better get the game but its so hard. try your best.
best game i had
OMG this game is so cool but the final episode is harder than the three stories. anyway i loved silver's story better because of what his powers are and how hard i try my best to defeat iblis the fire monster. anyway you should totally get this game. you will love it but if will be hard.
I had my doubts at first because of all of these bad reviews but now that i have actually bought and played this game i must say I don't know why everyone hates this game, its not bad at all i actually enjoyed it alot. Yes i will admit it is Glitchy but besides that its a pretty decent game.
Glitchy.....piece of garbage
I turned on this game knowing that this was the world renowned "Worst Game Ever", but I didn't think it would be THAT bad. The game has so many bugs and glitches that you'll spend too much time smashing your remote in anger than actually playing this deplorable waste of money.
