Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good idea I got this game and it was fun and all but it is a little weird at different points. Not easy either. I played this game a couple times. It was fun each time. Still never beat it. Buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game but hard I played this game a couple times and I liked it. It then got really hard for me to play. The enemies got hard to beat. Cause you really don't have any true allies to help you out. Either way still not a bad game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sonic is back with style This is Sonic like you have never seen him before. He changes form one thing by day and another one by night. You have a little flying thing that follows you around that you call chip and this has the making of a friendship if you think about it. Guess what the there are some known people from the other Sonic games in this one. Good game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost the Greatest Sonic game ever Sonic Unleashed is almost better than the Previous sonic games i've played throughout the years. Sonic in the daytime is so awesome and hardcore, but sonic in the nighttime is... almost impregnable. Daytime stages in six locations is pretty awesome. Nighttime stages in the same six locations is decent. In any case, i like them both.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sonic unleashed (ps3/360 version) review. Yes, I own both the ps3, and wii versions of sonic unleashed, and I've reviewed the wii version. Now, I'm reviewing the ps3 version. Sonic unleashed ps3 is a great game and it looks better than the wii version, it is in 1080p and runs at 60 FPS. now I don;t think that we should get into the story since i have already reviewed the wii version of the game. but in summary, dr eggman wants to take over the world again by awakening a creature called dark gaia, and then turns sonic into a werewolf like creature. Every stage resembles a different country. the gameplay looks great, it's like sonic generations and colors. the daytime stages are by far the best part of the game, there fast, there fun, and they last long enough and when the level starts to get old, it ends right at that moment. and, there are hub worlds where you actually walk around like in sonic adventrue and sonic 06. anyway, when the sun goes down, sonic turns into a werehog, and the night level starts, the night levels are basically beat em up style levels. they're far slower than the daytime levels and are unnecessarily long, while the daytime levels last about 4 minutes, the nightime levels are about a 30 minutes. it makes no sense why you have to play a slow repetitive level for a half hour, and all you do in the night stages is this, platform, fight, solve a bad switch puzzle, fight again, push a switch to open a door to reveal that there are bad guys in there, fight AGAIN, platform AGAIN, climb poles, platform AGAIN, fight AGAIN, get the goal ring and then you're done, that's how all of the night stages are. these night stages are not horrible, If they were as long as the daytime stages, they would be fine. now for another bad addition to the game, sun and moon medals, to get to the next stage you have to collect sun and moon medals, sun medals unlock daytime stages and are more common in nightime stages, and moon medals are the exact opposite. It's annoying when you want to unlock a stage and you're close to the end of the game, but then when you try to play the stage it says NOPE YOU NEED 40 SUN MEDALS TO PLAY THIS STAGE:) . and in the daytime stages you'll have to slow down to look for the moon medals, making the daytime stages just as slow as the nightime stages. and the bosses, they are okay, and they can be hard, but the final boss is just cheap. all in all, this is an okay sonic game, but still is far from the best, I wish that the game only had the daytime stages, wouldn't that be great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A list of things that ruin a good sonic game. if all of these things were not in this game, this could have been one of the best sonic games ever. I like the daytime levels. it is just like sonic colors. this would be a great sonic game if they did not add the nightime stages. sonic becomes a creature called the "werehog" and just fights. their are just fighting. to the point where it feels like a diffrent game. and the WORST PART IS colecting sun and moon medals. you can't get to the next stage until you find enough. for daytime levels you need sun medals for nightime stages you need moon medals. there are more sun medals in nightime levels and there are more night medals in daytime levels. I could not finish the whole game. right after I finished adbat act 1 (jungle joyride night) they said that I had to colect 33 sun medals too make it into the daytime stage. I can't search for that many medals. even worse if you need moon medals you have to mostaly look through the daytime levels. and if you are focused on runing you can very easily miss severel, if not all of them. and most of the boss battles are in nightime and there are only 3 daytime boss battles and the second one (egg lancer) is an exact duplicate of the first one (egg beatle). also all of empire city was anoying and almost unplayable. the nightime stage of empire city is when you are on rail with spikes and you can't hang on the edge of it because if you do than you immediatly fall and lose a life. and the daytime empire city was so fast paced that if you do not enter the corect buttons in 5 seconds you will fall and lose a life imediatly. and there are very few halfway points that you can start from after you lose a life. I recomend the wii version. even though I don't have it, I looked it up and the stages are opened automaticly, the empire city level was removed, so was the mazuri level (but the egg beatle boss is still there) get the wii version.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why Sonic....Why? This has to be the second worst sonic game I have ever played next to Sonic the Hedgehog 2006. The day levels are great in this game. But the controls feel loose and slippery. But the the night levels come and you will be utterly disappointed and you'll realize this game is not worth the money they're charging for it, even after its been four years(written in 2012). During the night levels you'll play as Sonic the "Werehog" and you may have the worst time of your life. The levels(and sonic) are so slow that you may have to think twice before progressing any further. If they made it so that you could type things out in the reccomondations box, I would write: "Anything but THIS!"
