Rated 5 out of 10 by firstname.lastname@example.org not a great sonic game
this game is not good or bad. its just average,which i guess for a sonic game is pretty good. i did not like the wii remote held sideways thing at all! and sonic talks so much about his speed in this game when actually his speed isn't to hot. i am not a big fan of the story book series but i wouldn't complain if it went on past sonic and the black night. the game overall is a huge disappointment even to diehard sonic fans like me. the back flip thin pisses me off to no end! sonic games are about blasting through lush green fields and spinning around loops but sonic and the secret rings offers none of that, it's mostly sliding around corners and doing back flips to step on a control pad that activates a sealed door. sonic's attitude definitely makes an appearance in this game though which has been missing for years. unfortunately it is overshadowed by his love and compassion for his genie who will never stop crying about how sorry she is for summoning him to her world. final verdict:sonic fans will enjoy the game somewhat but i don't recommend buying it.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Zero-One A Swing and a Miss...
Sonic's first appearance on the wii is a startling one. First off the control scheme is pretty lame and can piss you of in 3.5 seconds or the first 12 times you miss an enemy with a HOMING attack. Secondly the story line and it's cutscenes' lameness are a shame among Sega's beloved franchise. On a positive note, this game actually has some fun ( once you get used to the controls and glitches) in it. With loads of unlockables and a seemingly enjoyable multiplayer mode, this game will give you hours of frustration from the inability to conquer one single challenge, laughs due to funny ways of dying in front of friends, and sadness from the disappointing lack of the true platforming and adventuristic style of Sonic's previous games. This game is still kinda good, try it out for yourself just take a break in between every mission or you may either break your wii remote or someone's face out of anger.
Rated 3 out of 10 by PsychoticYoshi2009 WARNING: Terrible Game!
If Sonic the Hedgehog games were all ranched on a farm, this would be the black sheep fo the bunch. It just doesn't work. The length is somewhat dissapointing. I mean um... really dissapointing. I beat the game's main story, defeating Erazor, in about 5 hours. That's the problem with the Sonic Storybook series. It's too freaking short. The sound has two problems. 1, it has LYRICS. I'm not saying that Sonic Adventure 2's music is bad. It's because it has lyrics that have nothing to do with the stage. I pretty much just answered problem number 2 with problem number 1. The storyline is mediocre at best. It just doesn't work. But it isn't so bad that I would prefer Sonic and the Black Knight over this. I don't like either of these games. The controls miss the mark. The controls, like the game, don't work. In Black Knight, they actually switched to the Wiimote-Nunchuk style. If you take Sonic and throw in a bad concept, like the Alladin story, and you've got a terrible game right there. 3/10. Please, just let the Sonic Storybook series go. The Sonic Franchise was on life-support before this.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Animal Lover Horrible Sonic Game
I've grown up with Sonic for years. I used to play him when I was little and have him chase and collect rings. Sure, some things never change, however a lot of things do. First off....the storyline: It's a bit obvious and boring. The dialogue isn't that great, and again, it's pretty obvious. It's also extremely cheesy. I don't really care about the story line to a game as long as the game is fun, though. Moving on to the gameplay and experience. At first, it's alright. It's not too bad. However, every single time you finish a mission, you return to the main game menu. This gets annoying after about three very short missions. It would be much better if they made the automatic transition like most games do. Also, the gameplay itself is repetetive. I was on a mission, and I kept failing. At the beinning of the mission, a girl's voice tells you how to do a move. Then, when you try it again, she repeats how to do the move. It gets really annoying after about ten tries. All in all, I was very disappointed with this game. It should have esier transitions and, overall, be a lot less repetetive.
Rated 7 out of 10 by 321Halo123 Not the best sonic game
I have had this game since around it came out but havn't played it in months. It's not as good as other sonic games like sonic adventure battle 2 for the gamecube. First the storyline isn't that great because it seems like its made for 6 year olds with the voices and stuff they say. The controls aren't very good either you tilt the remote forward to run press 2 to jump and then you do the homing attack by pushing the remote forward hard. But your always going so if you run into something you have to tilt the remote backwards then you start moving forward as you as you stop tilting back. It doesn't seem like very free movement the way the camera is since your always moving forward then when there's a big turn it takes over for you. Alot of the levels is being taken over by the game like a cutscene but then you suddenly are controlling it yourself. I think there are less than 10 levels each made up of lots of missions so It's not like I game you will finish in 3 days. There is also a 4 player party game mode but thats the only multiplayer mode on the game. So this is an ok game but maybe better for younger kids
Rated 10 out of 10 by email@example.com This game is awesome!!
First of all the story is pretty bad i mean one book out of all the arabian nights books all the characters come alive pretty dumb the gameplay is great and you only have short levels but there are so many levels that it makes up for it overall good gameplay the graphics are great the best on wii well 2nd best behind sonic and the black knight but great the sound is good but annyoing like when your doing a level and the rock music comes on w/ vocals its annoying the voice acting is good but annoying the sound effects are basic but sharas voice is horrible you might as well kill yourself than listen to her and everyone always says random stuff during each level annoying the game is great overall it is the game sega needs to pull sonic from out under the covers and just great i reccomend you buy this now! 10 out of10 perfect.
Rated 4 out of 10 by soniciskool not that good of a game
Controls are kind of hard to get used to them. They could have made it better by adding the nunchunk to it because using the wii remote sideways is kind of complicated. Adventure mode can get and is very fusturating. Some missions are way to hard and you die or fall a lot. Sonic is suppose to be fast and in this game he makes turtles look faster than him . The party games are a lot of fun to play with your friends, but if you play it by yourself its not that fun to play. What sucks about party games you cant choose the one you want to play the computer automaticly chooses for you. There is a lot to unlock in bonus materials that should keep you busy for a while, but can be boring to do the same thing over and over again. I dont recomend you to buy this game you should rent it to try it out and see if you like it or not.
Rated 10 out of 10 by The K-Man!!! This game is AWESOME!!!
Ok, the storyline isn't good as we all thought, and the controls are a little hard to grasp, but once you get the hang it, you'll love this game. At first, I was a little hesitant either to buy this game or not. I read the reviews for it, and I was like "what the heck", so I went to the store and picked up a copy. I got frustrated with the controls because you have to tilt the wii remote, but the game is all-around awesome. First off: the graphics. Sure, they're average for a wii game, but they're still good. Second off, the environments. From deserts to dinosaurs, you'll be saying "wow" in no time. The best part: the lyrics! Some of the levels have some pretty sweet soundtracks if I do say so myself! Buy this game, and you wont regret it! But if for some reason you dislike this game, well, don"t blame me!
Rated 9 out of 10 by HefferHeffer Not all that good
I hope this one gets posted, The "Sonic" franchise was great, until this game. I always loved the games and was looking forward to this one, but everything has changed, the game was way too hard, controls are alright, but I thought the storyline was too mediocre, I liked the fact that the controller was sideways, but hey, thats not the big part. The paragraphs (levels) were the same things over and over again and I kept dieing when I started the 1st chapter, The multiplayer is weird at first, but you can get used to it, But overall the game was a huge dissapointment. But positively the game has good graphics, a load of glitches you can get used to, and good graphics. This game is really frustrating and be careful not to throw the remote at the wall like I did in anger. I totally recommend this game
