You HAVE to have this if you're a Sonic gamer
Okay, I am probably one of the best Sonic gamer's out there and this game PWNED. It's not as good as Sonic Colors, but it's good. Unleashed is epic, fast-paced, but the only bad thing is...the Werehog. That handsome, gorgeous werewolf has some pretty bad levels. Seeing Sonic with rabies looked awesome to play as, but turns out not as much. If your mission is to be play with the Werehog 24/7 in this game then mission acomplished. I really play this game for the Day stages because they are some of SEGA's best gameplay yet. But the Night stages, or the Werehog, needed some work. The Werehog's gameplay fought more likely a Crash Bandicoot game. But overall, this game rocked. Sonic's out of Mario's shadow now.
I mean this game is good the graphics are nice the gameplay is good but this game is so long and once u get to eggmanland ughh takes forever!!!! but i wont call this game horrible its alright this game is for hardcore
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.
Better Sonic game than you may think
Really, this game is better than most reviews give it credit for. It has it's strong points, it has its flaws, but what game doesnt? So far, this is my favorite Next-Gen Sonic title. Here's my view on the game. PROS: The day-time levels are just amazing. The sense of speed you get when blazing through these timeless levels is satifying enough to buy the game already. Graphics are well-done this time; character models look great. Voice acting is tolerable since Jason has gotten used to voicing Sonic. I still prefer Ryan Dummond, but meh, Jason is sounding better with each game. Plenty of side missions and theres always collecting the Sun/Moon medals if you wanna complete this game 100% CONS: The night levels are kind of a screeching halt to otherwise fast paced gameplay. While the variety of attacks and combos, as well as the context-sensitive actions, are a nice variety, they can kinda get boring after doing it for 10 straight minutes. Really, that's the only bad side to this game that I see. So if you dont mind a lil bit of slow night levels and your a Sonic fan, I would recommend this game :)
Favorite Sonic game
The best part about this game is when you use unleash. Many of the moments of the game are fun to do. It is fun to do things at night. All I can say is that it is fun to play.
The BEST sonic game so far!
Yes of course the werehog levels slowed down the game a little but please dont knock it till you try it seriously. As a sonic fan of course I would love it (its quite natural) but for you non-sonic lovers why even bother if it sucks. I mean the graphics are just gorgeous, gameplay easy for me, and everything else is cool as well. Yes it may lack the inclusion of other characters from sonic (like knucles, shadow, etc.) but the game creators specifically said that they wanted to focus mainly on sonic this time, so try to understand.And no one should give this game a low score because they suck at it, the game is very intense in speed and very challenging in the night levels, so I doubt anyone would get the hang of it right away. Overall this game gets a 10/10 from me and will stay that way.
MY PERSONAL FAVORITE SONIC GAME OF ALL TIME
now you're probably wondering why am I reviewing sonic unleashed for the PS3 and the wii because i'm going to tell you why the PS3 version is my favorite sonic game ever. but i'm going to warn you sonic fanboys are going to freak out. the story is basically the same. sonic charges through eggman's battle station with the most epic cutscene ever. and just when sonic looks beat he unleashes the chaos emeralds and becomes super sonic. then eggman looks like he is surrendering ut he activates his new machine to suck the chaos emeralds dry and unleash dark gaia to spit the earth. but due to staying into the machine to long he is transformed into the werehog. but when day comes he turns back into normal sonic. the stages are divided into night and day. day stages are fast paced and excting. but the nighttime stages are a little less exciting. but still have solid platforming and new combat moves. one thing that's also new to sonic is the RPG like upgrade system. for daytime sonic you can upgrade his overall speed and the duration of his boost. for nighttime sonic you can upgrade combat skills, life, strength, shield and unleashed mode duration. the 7 worlds representing the 7 continents all range in design. from high rises and deserts to jungles and islands. also different from the wii version instead of point and click villages in the wii version you can actually manuver through the villages. so overall this game is the best sonic game in the franchise and if you are a sonic fan get the XBOX or PS3 version.
Well, in my opinion this game is very well done, it is okay. The day time stages are awesome, I prefer the most the levels where you must use Quick Step, and their graphics are very well, some glitches, but I'm the kind of person who dosen't care about these, I just found them hilarious. Now let's go with the night stages. Well they are the reason I describe this game as Okay, because these levels are challenging, sometimes I lose control of myself I must admit, shouting bad words, etc, etc, but they are as I say "Challenging" and they are fun to play too, but if i need to chose which of the stages I prefer, I would say the day time stages, and I doubt I will play too much the night time stages, but the missions on the night and day time stages are awesome and challenging, and the only way I'm going to play the night time stages again, is because of the missions.
Sonic: Yes! Werehog: ehh, maybe? Overall: Great!
This game is very fun to play, the controls aren't hard to pick up and the graphics are amazing! The day stages make it one of the best games to play, with brilliant graphics, great level design, and a good sound track that fits the game and the levels very well. Also the PS3 (and the 360) features something that the wii version didn't which is interactive hub worlds. You can wander through these small hub worlds straight to the next level or walk around in them to talk to people and just see what it has to offer. Overall, Sonic Unleashed for the PS3 is a great game with a very well-done story and brilliant day-time stages to make it well worth the price!
Demo was misleading
I have not felt compelled to write a review here in a long time but this game has me upset. I played the demo from PSN and expected good old Sega Genesis type Sonic play since thats what the demo was. Basically I expected the Sega days of running at an absurd speed trying to duck and dodge obstacles and collect rings and maybe find some hidden passageways such as what the demo board was. I was wrong after the first two run through boards you get into gameplay that mirrors Spyro and if I wanted Spyro gameplay thats the game I would buy. On top of this RPGish kind of leveling up. I'll say the graphics are good but other then that if all you've played is the demo you need to look into this game more because the demo is not even close to what the actual gameplay is. The demo should have been one of the other mutant sonic boards.
