I wouldn't recommend this to many people as this is a guilty pleasure of mine. The only people I'd recommend this to is kids. Many teenagers and adults would most likely find it overly monotonous and repetitive, not to mention slow, and I totally get where they're coming from. So, what do I find agreeable in this game? The fact that you get to choose between 4 characters (although not all the time, sometimes it'll only allow you to choose 1 or 2, but those times are far between.) The combat is quite fun to me, despite the limited amount of moves, they can be intense and watching the animations can be fun. Speaking of the animations, the animations in the cutscenes are great looking. Despite the graphics themselves being subpar, due to low quality textures, I find the aesthetics of the environments that Sonic and his friends travel through to be quite gorgeous. And the character models are very well constructed.The exploration factor in this game is great, a number of places to travel to and to find hidden goodies that can upgrade your character. Great for rewarding your sense of curiosity. The upgrades aren't all great, but I found myself heavily using the ground pound with increased range, making combat have at least something different in it. The mach speed sections are a lot of fun, despite those times having questionable framerate. I nonetheless get immersed during those sections. If you have kids and need to get them something for their Birthday and they enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog, this wouldn't hurt to get for them.
