It's pretty badThe sound quality is bad, the controls could be better. The buttons you have to press with the stylus are too small. Overall, the game shouldn't be remembered for anything except it's story. It's story is pretty good.

Sonic ChroniclesI bought this game used from Game Stop for my daughter. Very disappointed, it did not work at all. Usually Game Stop is top quality and I never have any issues with the products I buy for my children whether they are new or pre-owned. However, this time I was very upset in the quality control.

GREAT GAMEThis game is amazing. It really does have a great story. It has around ten different characters to play as. Some battles late in the game are just painful to play though. I would recommend this game to just about anyone! They really did some cool stuff about the dialogue you can have multiple dialogue pathways resulting in different events in the game. (Such as skipping a battle, finding out a secret and so on) I wish it was not just touch screen though. I mean we have a control pad,

The dark age of Sonic.This game had to be one of the biggest disappointments in RPG history. When I heard Bioware was developing this game, I knew it had to be good. Bioware, mind you, made the Mass Effect series, and Starwars: Night of the Old Republic. Before Sonic Chronicles was even made, Mass Effect 1 hit the market and it was amazing. This game though is anything but amazing. The story is boring in every way: Evil Tribe comes to take over the world, Sonic wins, plot twist. It's not interesting at all. The graphics are God awful. I've seen DS games from Mario 64 to Sonic Rush, what the heck happened? When your characters look similar to the Mcdonalds Pakastan commerical, you know you've done something wrong. The music is so horrible. The try making music from the original games like Sonic 3, but they fail horribly. The worst part is the battle system. Never have I seen a battle system as horrible as this. In order to do special moves, it requires an Elite Beat Agents style minigame, but it's too strict. If you mess up even one move, the whole entire move fails. And special move points are pretty scarce. You're going to find yourself healing up and spending lots of money to get items to replenish your speical moves. Money is scarce also, the only way to get money is to sell items you win in battle, but half of the time it's stuff you need. Look, avoid this game like the Plauge. It's not worth the time and effort at all.

Revised Review: Turn-Based Sonic RPG=========
Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood features a rather generic story for the Sonic universe, but I wasn't going into this game expecting a grandiose storyline either. The game starts off with Sonic returning from a recent mission only to discover that the chaos emeralds have been stolen and that Knuckles was kidnapped trying to defend them. The adventure quickly pursues with you attempting to stop the marauders that appear to be behind the kidnapping of Knuckles and the most recent thefts of the chaos emeralds.
My only major complaint about the story is that it ends on a cliffhanger, and is then followed up with the characters reading off the credits. Though, to be fair the game had broken the 4th wall rather repeatedly before this as well with the game constantly reminding you to save the game.
The gameplay in this game is rather mixed. On the downside the game is control entirely with the stylus, but on the plus side the stylus controls are responsive and do work rather well. On the downside the lack of button controls is rather disappointing.
Combat in the game is comprised of rounds that are broken up into turns. Each character gets a certain amount of turns during each combat round, but the way the game works makes it impossible to heal when you need to. One you choose to attack or defend your character will do nothing else during that round. The only exception to this is if you choose to use a special move or use an item. The lack of an ability to heal or guard when you need to is probably this games Achilles' heel when it comes to combat. Another issue is that several of the characters have special moves that are broken. Another downside is that most of the equipment in the game doesn't really have an impact on combat. On the plus side the combat does feel rather fast-paced and the way of executing special attacks and countering enemy special attacks makes use of the stylus and makes combat more engaging.
The game uses a very comic-book style of graphics for the cut-scenes. This may appeal to people or it may not. The in-game graphics are a bit of a mix on the characters. Most of the characters are alright except for Eggman who has one of the weirdest movement cycles I've ever seen in a game. The designs of the fields and towns look like they were drawn in a style similar to a cartoon. Overall, I did enjoy the graphical style of this game.
Most of the soundtracks in this game are rather weak. They tend to be a mix of techno beat songs, and most of them aren't that good either. The battle theme did grow of me after a while though. The only plus side to the field music for the most part is that it is forgettable.
The game offers little in terms of lasting appeal to be honest. After beating the game you'll be sent back to the beginning of the game where you can attempt to collect rings that you missed on a previous run while also being able to acquire additional chao. The game also allows you to keep your levels and moves so an additional run through the game will be a lot easier.
