  1. The action is bewildering and frenetic, the challenge is minimal and the usual camera problems persist, but this is still an exuberantly entertaining game.

    The only way that the game stands apart on the PC is the higher resolution for graphics. A gamepad is a necessity for the full experience but the presentation of the game suffers somewhat due to the complete lack of an instruction manual.
  3. A step in the right direction, adding a nice teamwork element to the game. However, it is ultimately mediocre at best, given its fair share of problems, including bad camera issues and overly simplistic gameplay.

    It's a grand maze without dead-ends. [March 2005, p.84]

    If you are looking for Sonic like games, don't go for it.
    If you are looking for a challenging game, don't go for it.
    If you are looking for good plataform srtyle, don't go for it.

    So, in a few words, my advice to all sonic fans is: Don't play this game.

    If you are not a Sonic fan, you may like it.
