Rated 8 out of 10 by darkhairwarrior Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 is better than you think.
Okay, okay, now I know people will say, "WORST GAME EVURR" of something like that, but think the game from MY point of view, and you may actually wanna play.
New Sonic: Sonic the Hedgehog is going into a new generation, with high-definition, new characters, and thought out story. This game is how they express it. Sonic has more design, power ups, and experience. Eggman has more ideas, technology, and buttons. And many people call it dumb. I, however, call it NEW. Kinda like a reboot.
Glitches: Others call them bad, and game breaking, I call them fun, funny, and a reason for me to replay levels. I look for these all the time, so this is a gold mine for me. Loading times? I have to say, are terrible, but don't ruin the experience. DLC? Harder missions and Amigo packs. Fair. Silver? They were trying to create a new alternate style of gameplay, that exceeded from Sonic's speed. Slow, puzzle solving platforming. Me like.
These are only a few examples of what I mean. Hopefully you see this game differently now.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Filio Absolutely atrocious
I cannot believe how badly this has been rushed. It is widely known that this game is terrible and for very good reason. The graphics were good, the sound/music was awesome as always, all else in this game was just SO BAD. All the people that say this game is good probably didn't even play it and if they did... Well I guess they don't understand what 'fun' is. Or what game breaking glitches are. I'm sorry, flying past the skybox on a floating box isn't a glitch and nor is an enemy that turns INTO A BOX. Dying during scripted segments, absolute horrid level design, terrible story, etc. People defend this game, and I can't even believe these people. I assume they're either trolling or brain-dead. I recommend to all people that are not feeling suicidal to keep miles... no, light-years away from any copy of this game. This is NOT a fun game, it is a grueling nightmare. If you're going to buy anything related to this game, buy the soundtrack. You can, and that's great.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Goldgamer Next-Generation Sonic..
Sonic the Hedgehog is not terrible by any means. But the game is still flawed. Majorly. The storyline actually tells a good tale, but there are several in-game cutscenes that can really lag in lip-syncing and A.I. The graphics in the game are superior to most recent Sonic games. The gameplay is flawed by technical problems. Loading screens tend to last longer than 20 seconds, there are death glitches, and awful control. To be honest, though, the multiplayer is very fun and the replay value is fun, mostly because it challenges you to back and roam around Soleanna and collect Silver and Gold medals, and receive achievements. The game's presentation is decent, from the good storytelling to the talented cast. Silver is very fun to play, and his telekinesis is arguably the greatest part of the gameplay. The design is also well done, from the great graphics and jammin' soundtrack. I would suggest passing if you're not a sonic fan, but if not, rent it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by TooFYEKhmer Such a great game!
To start off, there are many great levels in the game and the physical aspects aren't the best, but it's worth while. I personally don't see much downside to this game beside SOME of the voice acting. The loading screen doesn't bug me since I usually like them when I'm doing other businesses. Overall Graphics are beautiful! Just the perfect amount of animations and colors that fit well with this game. I love the new aspects of running and the way he moves is too awesome. I bought this game a while back ago and it's still a great game. Most other people complain about the small stuff that doesn't matter. For example: loading screen takes too long, few glitches, etc. The downsides are easy to live with and you'll forget about that soon. When playing a fun game and you expeierence a bad situation, your brain forgets about it about 20 seconds later. People only make bad comments because they want the game perfect... There isn't anything perfect.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Slimeship This game had potential...
Let me start out by saying that I am a huge sonic fan, and this game was an embarrassment to sonic. The problem that I had with the game was that there were so many little glitches that made playing the game very difficult at times. The example I am going to use is at one point you chase the egg carrier ( I giant flying ship) and you have to hit the ramp for the loop d loops at the end or else you will end up randomly flying off of it at random parts and dying. Also during this part, if you jump and you aren't going straight you will almost always end up d by flying off the course. This among other glitches made this game very difficult and frustrating. I said that this game had potential because I has a rlly good story and the graphics and sound ar also really good. If yuve got nothing else to do or you just want to beat it just to say you beat it(like I did). Just be prepared to become very frustrated a times. Good luck!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Drason Its playable, so what's with the hate
Sonic 06 is a love it or hate it game, most hate it because of glitches. Though most glitches aren't gamebreaking and are few and far between. The gameplay is, at best, good, most characters handle nicely, but have no weight to them as they move just as fast on an incline as they do on a flat surface which can lead to some sloppy handling. Another complaint that I whole heartidly agree with is the control of Sonic during the mach speed sections. In these sections if Sonic so much as stubs his toe he'll stumble like a fool leaving him open to another hit that will kill him, making this one of the most frustrating parts in the entire game espescially if you want to achieve an s rank. The music is, predictably, the best part about the game. The entire music track of the game is nice to the ears. The graphics of the main sonic cast are really good, but the lip syncing and movements are some times too puppet like, especially the movements of the npcs, and the photo-realistic environment and people just don't mix well with the cast. overall its a playable at best and few will enjoy but it should be given a chance.
Rated 10 out of 10 by alex324 Wow nice game you made sonic team
This is one of the best sonic games iv,e seen the graphicsgreat the controls are fine it,s better then sonic the secret rings because i never really understood the game but this actually brought back memories of the sonic games and cartoons I was a fan of sonic sense the first game and episodes I was thinking of thinking of you guys putting dark super sonic instead of super sonic because whoever the boss is drained all the positive energy so sonic used the negative power so it gave him more energy then before well I hope you guys try to do what I said keep up the good work i also hope you guys make a new shadow the hedgehog with better graphics and you should make a sonic heros 2 with the same graphics as sonic the hedgehog for xbox360 with a new called the lightning team with blaze cat as speed,silver as flying because he hover and pick things up and mighty the armeddilo and also the jet team with jet as speed,wave as flying,and storm for fighting I hope this helped you guys a little I don't now what else say but keep up your hard because it will pay off well bye it was nice sending this message bye.
Rated 1 out of 10 by BR0FL0WSK1 Do Not Buy This
This game is awful. Seriously. Awful. It was rushed to be released a year early, so the glitches of the game make it unplayable. The physics controls make no sense. The story line is creepy; Sonic has a physical relationship with a human. The controls are atrocious. The level design is abysmal. The "side-quests" are beyond unnecessary and useless. The only good thing about this game is the soundtrack. Actually not that bad. However, the gameplay ruins this game. The only reason this game should ever be bought is for comedic purposes. There is no other reason. TL;DR: DO. NOT. BUY. THIS.
Rated 1 out of 10 by SaberofSpades Worst installment in the franchise
Utterly horrible game. Everything about it is bad. Overall, the graphics are better than say... Sonic Adventures, but thats the only improvement. The camera is HORRIBLE, the gameplay is shoddy at best. There is no opening tutorial, there is NOTHING in the game to tell you what buttons do what. There is no unique voices outside of the main characters and everything is dull and boring. The soundtrack is terrible, and it is so riddled with bugs that it is disgusting. The camera is utterly broken, it is so easy to miss one of those oh-so-important bridges of hitting robot to robot to cross empty spaces... This game is just bad. I made it 54 seconds into the first level and dropped the controller and turned the game off. Everything about this game screams mediocre. I would expect better out of a Platinum Hit. This game is literally WORSE than the DREAMCAST VERSION of the game. How? God knows. I put in a game to play for you people who think this game is good. I don't want you to play the gamecube version, but I couldn't find the dreamcast version. Play Sonic Adventures on Dreamcast. It is leagues better than this recycled garbage.
Rated 10 out of 10 by sonicman sonic in next gen
