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.
well i tried the game but its cool how sonic turned into a werewolf or werehog but i dont like the game so much. but its still cool for you guys but not me.
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.
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!"
This the 5th best sonic game
The levels are amazing and the night levels are good as well and story is epic on my opinion please get it.
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.
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
well im not going to say that its bad but the only problem is that theres too much blurriness in the game and also the werehog long and boring but the day sonic was pretty good this game isnt perfect but pretty good
Where's the platforming Day time stages?
This game is bad and i hate how people say "this is the best sonic stage ever" when in the day time stages is not what a real sonic game is not suppose to be. If the day time stages were to be any faster then it would feel like I'm playing a racing game not a sonic game. And sonic can move stiff as a board when there is platforming and a little hard to control. And if you wont to play some good more modern sonic games i recommend.......sonic adventure 1&2,sonic heroes, sonic colors, sonic generations ,and in case you wont to go retro play sonic the hedgehog 1,2,3and knuckles,and sonic CD
I have know idea why people hate this game! This is one of my favorite Sonic games of all time! I recommend it.
