Rated 6.0 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Nintendo Sonic Game My title is there for a reason, the story is superb, quite possibly the best Sonic story ever! The graphics are outstanding, not to mention that this is a Wii game. The gameplay aspects are great: With regular Sonic having high speed fun, along with a good challenge, the Werehog, unlike its HD counterpart, I can't get sick of replaying. The Sound, is glorious, having the awesome in-your-face action effects are awesome. While, yes, the game is short, it has a ton of replay-ability. Better than Colors, which was way too short and easy. This game has a good challenge, but not so hard you'll want to crack you controller in two. I give this game a Nine out of Ten.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fun including the werehog parts, but... This was good at first but I played the xbox 360 version first... The difference is night and day. well it was still fun but you can't level up like the 360 version and the overworld sucks. I guess my opinion is different cause I played the 360 version first, but oh well. Still better than sonic and the secret rings :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This game could have been great. Sonic unleashed could have been a great game, but the "night stages" ruin it. the daytime stages play like sonic colors, they're fast, they're fun, and they are great, well only problem is you can die a lot in eggmanland's day stage, I hate that stage. now the night stages, they are not like a sonic game, you just walk slowly as the "werehog" and fight a bunch of enimes, this can get annoying and tedious. now the story, basicly what happens is, Sonic confronting his nemesis, Doctor Eggman, bounding around a fleet of spaceships, and transforming into Super Sonic in order to stop him, destroying Eggman's mech and knocking Eggman himself to the ground. As a trap, Eggman pretends to plead for mercy. When Sonic is close enough, he activates the Chaos Energy Cannon, which traps Sonic in the center and begins drawing the Chaos energy out of Sonic and the Emeralds in a fashion that is clearly extremely painful for him. After the laser is charged, Eggman fires it at the earth to wake a monster known as Dark Gaia, splitting the planet. The dark energy of the Emeralds is brought out by the ray, transforming Sonic into a monstrous version of himself and rendering the Chaos Emeralds gray and powerless. Eggman then opens an airlock which sends Sonic and the drained Emeralds out into space and down to Earth. While Sonic is saved from a fatal landing due to an unknown energy source, he still ends up taking a heavy fall, landing on top of a flying dog-like creature whom Sonic names Chip. The resulting impact causes Chip to lose his memory (which Sonic thinks is his fault). Sonic agrees to help Chip restore his memory during their journey. so I know it could have been a lot simpler. anyway, you go around the world, and slowly put the planet back together. this game has hub worlds, you just point and click to talk to the citizens of each continent. did i mention that each continent in the game is based off of real life countries. anyway, overall this is a great game. I recomend it to, all sonic fans, if you are not a sonic fan, well, you might not like this than.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sonic is back, but so is the werehog. in this sonic game, durring the daytime you play as sonic, but when the moon goes down you play as the werehog. both of these stages are very good. but the daytime ones are a lot better. I still enjoy playing the nightime stages. the levels of the game are apotos,mazuri,spagoinia,holoska,chun-nan, shamar,empire city(NOTE: empire city is skiped entirely on the wii/ps2 versions of the game)adabat, and eggmanland. all of these stages are very well designed. there is nothing rushed about the game at all. it may actuly be the perfect sonic game, and the bosses are chalanging but still fun. the daytime levels are amazing, and the nightime levels are kind of fun but are slow compared to the daytime levels. but the rest of the game is perfect. the only problem is the graphics, they are okay, but the wii can do way better. yet the rest of the game is perfect. I highly recomend this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best Sonic game ever. Sonic finally looks like he is beginning to recover from the dramatic downfall he took from the abysmal Sonic 06. There are two different gameplay styles. There are daytime levels and nighttime levels. The daytime levels are what anyone would expect from a Sonic game. Sonic runs at the speed of sound through stages and it is really fun. He also has a boost gauge which he can fill up by collecting rings. The problem is that the gauge is split up into bars, each representing one boost. You cannot just do one continuous boost to get through the level, so you need to keep pressing the Y button (GC Controller) in order to keep up your speed. And the controls while boosting are WAY too stiff, and it's really hard to turn while boosting. Then there are the nighttime levels. When the sun sets, Sonic morphs into a werehog (don't ask), loses his speed and gains strength, and starts beating the life out of enemies. While these levels aren't too bad, there are just too many of them. For every one daytime stage, there can be as many as FOUR nighttime stages. They are combat based, and feel like the old-school Crash Bandicoot games. They can get repetitive and can last as long as ten minutes each. But they're still not that bad. The game has you collecting Sun and Moon medals, and how many you collect depends on the rank you get on a stage. So you need ALL S-Ranks in order to beat the game 100%. And the ranks are COMPLETELY based on time, not rings or enemies killed. So you can have NO rings at the end of a level AND have killed NO enemies, but as long as you beat the level within a certain time, you will still get S-Rank. The music is completely orchestrated and sounds really nice. The only soundtrack I have a problem with is the song that plays when you encounter enemies at night. it's catchy at first, but it plays EVERY TIME you encounter enemies and gets really annoying. Sonic Unleashed is a good game, but only for those who are passionate about Sonic games. It's not bad, but not worth buying if you are not yet familiar with the series.
