its a nice change from most sonic games, being able to run fast by holding down the R button. but the special stages make you look all around while trying to steer sonic into the orbs , and being timed. has a good story with great humor and drama. mostly more problem solving as fast as possible to get to the goal , which takes longer. i wouldn't recommend this if you just want to speed through stages like in Sonic 2, but it is a good sonic game overall. now if they could make sonic games slightly more like the sonic advance games they may be golden. boss battles are not really difficult , but they are fun to beat up.
yes: I recommend this product
