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.
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. :)
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.
This game is good...because the Daytime stages,but the Nightime stages sucks,very boring and frustrating,but it's a very good game,it's one of those games who is boring and fun at time.7/10
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!
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.

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.
To be honest with you, I've played other sonic games that were definitely a lot faster than this one.
Solid Sonic game.
This game is UNDERRATED, no one likes it because reviewers give this game a bad score because of the werehog stages, well, the day time stages are well worth the effort because they are fast paste and very long, much longer stages then Generations and Colors. Overall, the daytime stages are great. Theres a few pity problems in this game. One thing is that this game has a terrible framerate, some areas the framerate is badly choppy I fall to my death, especially Adabat. Another issue is the camera, sometimes the camera goes where ever it wants. The camera isn't that much of a problem though. Another problem is the Homing attack button, sometimes im trying to do the homing attack, but after when I gotted the Air boost sneakers, I keep doing the airboost instead of the Homing attack, this ain't much of a problem, its not that hard to get used too. Also, the werehogs stages, don't get me wrong, but sometimes these stages are fun, problem is that these stages are long and attend to drag as much as it needs too. The music is AWESOME, the music is fantastic, they are very catchy and makes you feel good when you play. Overall this is a Solid Sonic game, but it has its own problem that can't make this game good. Its long and very re-playable. This game is worth the money.
Pretty good, could be better.
After playing though this game multiple times I enjoyed it a great deal. The game lasted long enough to keep me interested and not get bored though some of the repetitive looking for items did bore me slightly. Overall the day time stages are my favorite in this game where Sonic shows his true colors in zipping though the boards at high speeds which is fun. I didn't particularly like the nighttime wear-hog boards but that is a personal preference, I don't think they ruined the game at all. The nighttime portion is something new that SEGA experimented with and while it was alright I think the idea could have been executed a little better but given that it ties directly in with the story, which is really good, this title redeems SEGA from Sonic 06 which received a bad rap for its poor game play and problems. This game will appeal to Sonic fans and kids alike with its mix of night and daytime play of speed as well as punch-em-up fighting. You only play as Sonic in this title and appearances by Amy, Tails and the ever Evil Dr. Eggman return with a new character that is introduced right off the bat who follows you thought your journey. The ending had a plot twist I honestly didn't expect and it wasn't too jarring, though strange I found it amusing. I don't think that the game has much replay value beyond once or twice other than getting all of the achievements/trophies. The game offers a way for you to customize how Sonic progresses sort of like a talent tree. Whenever you clear a board you get points that can increase either his day time attributes or nighttime attributes. Things like speed and strength are some of the many different things that you can increase to make Sonic faster in the day and stronger while in his warehog form at night. Overall a fun game and as I previously stated, redeems the SEGA company from Sonic 06 in the eyes of most Sonic fans, myself included.
