  1. In the end, Sonic nuts will love it. Everyone else should stay away.
  2. Some good ideas and lush graphics marred by bad game design. [Apr 2007, p.66]
  3. It is worth a rent, however, just to savour the few good bits, laugh at all the glitches... and to start crying when you remember what Sonic games used to be like in the '90s. Sob.
  4. The most muddled and irritating Sonic game yet. [May 2007, p.110]
  5. Wrought with visual glitches and pre-existing issues with poor camera angles, the mixture of zippy running missions grows tedious at near-Sonic speed, with limited control and boring exploration sequences. This one hits a brick wall, for sure.
  6. Possibly the lowest point in Sonic gaming, sloppy camera and terrible level design let this down badly. [Mar 2007, p.53]
  7. Not only are the voices horrible, as is the case for most Sonic games, but the story makes very little sense. Its like if you took any basic Nintendo story like Mario saving the Princess, lengthened it to several hours long, and filled it with mindless details that make no logical sense at all.

I know Sonic 06 does have it's problems but that does not make it bad. And also the Silver boss fight is great especially if you are Shadow! Expand

    A great game. A rushed development but its not half bad. The problems is that it has a alot of glitches and the story is very out of whackA great game. A rushed development but its not half bad. The problems is that it has a alot of glitches and the story is very out of whack but its actually something to enjoy playing. Great gameplay, a magnificent soundtrack and just a fun game. In this game, speed is not a priority... Sonic is speed based, Shadow is based on more of a combat feel to it, and Silver has the platform feel to it with his telekinesis. Overall its a great game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is bad! Really bad! The graphics are ok. The game-play is REALLY BAD! The story is kind of hard to follow, I mean, it goes from two peoples perspective, which just messes it up. The game just really lost its "cartoon" feeling. Oh plus Sonic dies. And Oh my gosh... Sonic gets kissed by a human girl, and is but to life. Yeah, I know right? So bottom line... Don't buy this game. Expand

    When you finally get to a level, you spend about %20 of the time controlling the character, and the rest of the time just watching sonic When you finally get to a level, you spend about %20 of the time controlling the character, and the rest of the time just watching sonic bounce off springs and go through loops. the only way to really attack is just pushing jump over and over again. Sega should have put their dev dollars into a 2D game with improved physics. Just because you can do 3D doesn't meen you always should. Expand

    This is by far the worst game I have ever played in my life. I know Sonic Team can make something better than this. I mean why don't This is by far the worst game I have ever played in my life. I know Sonic Team can make something better than this. I mean why don't they just call it "The Loading Game", because that's all it really does. Enter mission--load--, explain mission--load--, say one more line--load-- and your finally in the mission. And the missions are terrible as well. And the beginning? Who found it fun to be chased by a tails screaming at you the whole way. This game gives you no clue on what to do. It's pathetic. Luckily Sega made up for Virtua Fighter. Expand
