Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not play I hated this game so much I have it for my Xbox and wii now this is my personal opinion and I just thought it was to easy and I am a fps guy like a lot of people I know I first heard about it when my friend was so excited to play it on his ps3 and I begged for it thinking it would be fun but NOPE!!! Now I know I sound like a Nintendo hater hear but I am not I honestly love them I mean I prefer Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed over it but this one sucked terribly do not get it if you are not a gamer that can withstand terrible games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fun to play Sonic Unleashed is byfar the best 3-D Sonic game since Sonic Adventure. It merges high speed gameplay and plateforming with 2-D/3-D gameplay styles. The game is split up into two styles of gameplay. The first being the day stages were you play with sonic, and the night stages were you play with the Werehog. The day stages are fast paced high speed levels, were the main objective is to get to the goal ring as fast and fluid as you can. each level (including the nightime stages) rank your performance, with the highest rank being "S rank" and the lowest being "E rank". The nightime stages are an arcade fighting stye gameplay consisting of combo's and swinging from platform to plateform. The nightime stages also require you to complete puzzles to get to certain areas throughout the stages. The game also has HUB worlds were you can interact with other characters. And is were your main objectives are before you enter the stage. The voice acting is the best its ever been. There arent very many main characters in the game. The main characters are Sonic, Tails, D.r EGGMAN, Chip, Amy and proffesor Pickle. The only playable characters are Sonic and the werehog. The story is excellent. it reminds me alot of the Sonic Adventure story. you will see what I mean when the story progresses. The music is downright badass! songs like Endless Possibillity, Rooftop run, jungle joyride and more. The game overral is a fun experience and I hope you get it. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, the perfect Sonic game. Sonic Unleashed is the beginning of a new age of Sonic games! It truly portrays Sonic's full abilities, and more with the new Werehog feature. The story of Sonic Unleashed is Eggman draining the power of the Chaos Emeralds to power a laser that splits the world apart. Without the power of the Chaos Emeralds Sonic cannot turn into Super Sonic and as a new addition is forced to turn into a Werehog and night! The day stages fully take advantage of Sonic's super speed with high speed 3D levels. Also enjoy a remake of the popular "side-scrolling" 2D mode through the day modes. Sonic also has a boost that allows him to charges through nearly any obstacles while using the course to maintain momentum. The night stages with the Werehog shows a whole different side of Sonic. It is based on strength rather than speed. You engage in battle with Eggman's goons and the monsters created by Dark Gaia. With the Werehog you can pull off sick combos and occasionally go all-out with the Unleashed mode. Overall, Sonic Unleashed truly described what Sonic really is; The fastest thing alive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way past cool! I first played this game on the Nintendo Wii, and it was horrible! Then I got an XBox 360 and it was awesome! the graphics were better, there were Town Levels, and the exploration is great! I'd recommend this game to any Sonic the Hedgehog fans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's One Of The Best Sonic Games Ever Made! Story- It's kinda long but I'll tell you the short version of the story. Sonic chases after Eggman but gets trapped and becomes a Werehog (Werewolf + Hedgehog = Werehog) then finds this creature that lost his memory so Sonic agrees to help him find his memory. Gameplay- It is split into 2 different styles of gameplay, Daytime and Nighttime. Daytime is were you play as a Hedgehog so you go speeding around countrys and boosting everywhere. Nighttime is were you play as the werehog. You're not as fast as reguler Sonic but you can dash, do swipes and punches and you can also make combos. It can be fun. Music- 2 words........... SO EPIC! the songs in Sonic Unleashed are funky and happy and sometimes they can be sad and depressing. The music always matchs and are always so fun to listen to! Opinons- One of the best sonic games ever! Music, gameplay everything is awesome about this game! If you never played this game in your life, try it you wont be sorry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not enough credit This game is epic. for the first time a sonic game acualy had free roming and had crazy speed on the normal levels.I don't know why people say that the werehog levels stink because the actually had combat. like punching and kicking. people say that the speed is the problem but i acually like the casual speed. sometimes you need to take a break from all that running.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More speed... To be honest with you, I've played other sonic games that were definitely a lot faster than this one.
