Oh what could of been so great.. If only sonic never changed... And this game gives proof to that theory.
To start off the story is actually good this time around just the game is such a mess, Its more or less like Sonic Adventure.. you run around.. Go to a portal and start a new level.. The first level is a classic adventure level.. This has been done so many times... then you get to the second which is like the OLD sonic but in 3d.. this is where the game shines.. It gives you hope.. but it quickly takes it away whenever sonic turns into a beast and night that is so slow.... it bores you... Its like they throw you in a speeding car and just pull the break whenever your getting to the "This is fun!" part...
unpredictable environments navigated at the speed of sound makes for a wild roller coaster ride full of loop-de-loops and alternatw routes and more. Follow the speedy hero through 2D and 3D perspective, which are brilliant executed shifts, and capture the addictive [ace and frantic play mechanics of the classic video games that grace the halls of history. Unfortunately Sonic;s dark side is unleashed in this game, when during the well-publicized night-set levels in which Sonic is transformed into a slow-moving, stretchy werehog. If this concept seems forced, it is a little, but not nearly as forced and boring as the repitive selection of nighttime stages. The question is, how much are you willing to put up with for the undeniably great daytime levels.
