Average User Score: 6.5Nov 7, 2013Good game, bad experience. This game has an innovative concept with a top notch soundtrack from Tomoya Ohtani and gourgeous-looking graphics, it has problems though:
1) Way too long levels
Not all of them of course, but some are just repetitive (Tropical Resort 2), too gimmicky (Tropical Resort 3/Frozen Factory 2) or just too hard (Frozen Factory 1).
2)Bad camera choices: too zoomed in (Windy Hill 3); you can't see where you are going to (Sky Road 2)
3)Smart Controls are Dumb.
Serial homing attack deserved it's own button here. You will end up homing on a lot of ememies, not unfrequently onto an offscreen one. Leaving that to the 'L' button would have been a better choice.
4) Bad introduction to the game mechanics
Sonic Rush Adventure had a small tutorial that made you understand every little feature of the game, Sonic Colors DS also had a tutorial for each Wisp. Windy Hill tutorial is useless.
I think with some patches this could have been a 9 or 10 but these flaws... no. They are annoying and game breaking … Expand
