by Sonicsilvermaster 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.

Rated 8 out of 10 by Abraxas 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 :)
Rated 8 out of 10 by Celestino Okay
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.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Legend338 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by S0nicB0y 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.
Rated 5 out of 10 by altiar66 ok...
I went into this game thinking it would be ok i was far wrong so wrong. Now i admit some of the levels are ok however those levels only happen during the day and for some unknown reason sonic's world is always at night ahhh. The night levels are just ridiculous i hate them. Some parts have good qualities but its mainly bad. Now if this is like one of your favorite games dont write back about this review saying it was good its my opinion and you have yours so just deal with it. My honest opinion on this game is just pass it up and go for sonic generations. However if you want a good sonic game that is currently out get sonic colors. I know its on the wii but it is actually really good. If you want to be frustrated and angry you just found the perfect game. Thank you for reading. Have fun.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Shadow7284 Sonic is still going strong
This was awsome much better the Sonic 06 I say if you are a littel if-y then rent it that is what i did and i bought it the next day and do not fun to let the wer-hog throw you off the wer-hog is fun to play as it is like a sonic beat-em up and he is fast and sonic is ever faster he is the fastest he has ever been in a good bit so go pick this up or rent it but look at like this if you buy and do not like it you can trade it in in sort i loved this game and if your a sonic fan like me go pick this up the ghpics are sweet and the game plays out good and the misic is awsome and the wer-hog kicks some searyus booty lol's he even has ryu's dragon-punch called sho-HOG-ken and that was awsome and the game is not too hard and it is not too easy so to sonic fans go buy this NOW!!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by hotrod231 Best sonic game of all time period
This is definetly the best sonic game up to date hands down, i mean it was because of this that made me look at sonic in a different perspective. The werehog levels were great, challenging and a good to addition to the game i really enjoyed it. Both the ps3 and the xbox 360 versions of the game are the same while the wii and ps2 are different. I like this version better because the gameplay is amazing, the ps3 and 360 versions of this game have something called dlc (downloadable content) that the other version of the game does not. The dlc is basically a harder and more stylished round of levels of sonic and the werehog. Anyway, you know the facts, go pick up a copy for yourself to have a great experience with sonic, I highly recommend this game to any sonic fan.
Rated 9 out of 10 by neocross The old sonic is back!
I had my doubts with sonic this time around. But they delivered. The growth of sonic is different than before seeing as how you earn level up points that you must distribute between regular sonic, or werehog. I know the werehog thing might seem a little far fetched but its better than having to play one of sonics annoying friends. I am a sonic fan and just had to pick this up. Let me tell you it is a really fast paced game. After awhile youll be in tunnel vision after playing a bit. I like how it goes from 3-D to 2-D flawlessly. Just dont get frustrated if you fall because you arent moving fast enough (i wanted to break my control because of this). Its a pretty solid game seeing as how sonic has come this far. If you aren't a sonic fan you could rent it to try out.
