In doing so, Sonic finds himself in a race against time and faced with an unusual situation that challenge hims in ways never before seen. Both day and night play different, yet important, roles in Sonic's newest quest... as the sun sets, a new adventure awakens. By completing a wide variety of action-packed stages, spanning the seven broken continents of the world, gamers unleash Sonic’s amazing abilities to save the world, and himself! In addition to running at high speeds, which is highlighted in four new speed mechanics, combat fighting now becomes possible. New combat, movement, functional abilities and platforming are introduced to offer increased depth and variety. Sonic Unleashed offers a re-defined experience for fans and newcomers of the franchise alike by combing picturesque & detailed scenery, an expansive world with multiple paths to choose from and dynamic viewpoints for an immersive and renewed gaming atmosphere. Along with seamless 3D to classic 2D camera transitions, the game is built on a powerful, new proprietary "Hedgehog Engine," which introduces impressive lighting abilities and new technology tailor made for Sonic’s new speed capabilities.

  1. The faster Sonic levels are a real treat, and Sonic Unleashed has many high points to balance out the lows. The real bummer is not so much the concept of the werehog sections as it is how these portions of the game painfully drag the rest of the game down.

    Sonic Unleashed is half great game and half tedious gimmick.
  3. Sonic Unleashed is a decent Sonic game for someone that can overlook the slower Night stages. The Werehog missions aren't all the way bad but when played several times in a row, they tend to become repetitive and unwelcome.

    The problem is that while portions of Unleashed are entertaining, the two styles never meld into a cohesive new experience. [Feb 2009, p.75]
  5. The Playstation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed is not the return of this character to its glorious days that fans wished for. It’s a mediocre title although it contains some positive aspects. Meanwhile we advise fans to go with the versions for the new generations of consoles.

    El juego desarrolla su historia de una manera interesante y desglosa los contenidos del Sonic del día y Sonic de la noche de una forma bien capacitada y totalmente competente, en donde disfrutarás corriendo y agarrando monedas con el Sonic del día e ir de un lado en otro colgándose en barras y otras cosas con el Sonic de noche., además, este juego también consigue dar una buen nivel de diversión y, por lo tanto, no te aburrirás mientras lo juegues. Así que, si quieres un juego divertido y estimulante que te de entretenimiento y te haga disfrutar, Sonic Unleashed es una opción muy buena y factible.

My one problem with this game is NOT the Werehog stages. I actually really liked those, and the rest of the game ain't too bad either. The stages are stellar, I love the music, and the controls are smooth as ice. My only problem is in some of the daytime stages, you can go from a 3D plane to a 2D plane. I like this touch, but it can REALLY screw up my coordination. I'd say you check it out, as it's one of the last good Sonic games we got before the atrocity that was Sonic Boom.and for all I know the Werehog stages are DEFINITLY better than Ty 3's horrible excuse for combat Expand

    Practically a game that plays itself when it shouldn't, and a painful experience once the sun sets down.
    It's dumbed down to hell from the 360/PS3 versions, and features more of the Werehog than Sonic.
    Also has one less continent. Graphics aren't all that hot and the controls could be better.
    Good the first time, but it will get on your nerves if you have to complete it again. Get the 360/PS3 versions if possible.
