    In the end, Sonic nuts will love it. Everyone else should stay away.

    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. Playstation Official Magazine UK

    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. Pure Magazine UK

    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.

    Лагучий оргызок программного кода - вот как можно коротко описать эту игру и от части версию, т к на Xbox 360 никаких проседаний нет.Лагучий оргызок программного кода - вот как можно коротко описать эту игру и от части версию, т к на Xbox 360 никаких проседаний нет. Единственный и то не законченный плюс игры - сюжет. Всё остальное это сущий кошмар. Анимации в этой игре это какой то пи***ц. Просто подойдите и поговорите с каким нибудь жителем. Тогда вы узреете всю 'прелесть' анимации в этой игре. Графика тут впринципе неплоха, но анимация просто убивает её в пух и прах, а теперь самое сладкое - геймплей. Персонажи слишком резко управляются, чуть троните стик влево или вправо и можете улететь в воду или пропасть. Руж почему то хрен отстыкуется от стен, а Наклз литает на слишком малькие расстояния и врагов бьёт так будто у него кулаки размером 1 миллиметр. Шедоу раздражает своей боёвкой, у Омеги обычные снаряды почему то улетают в землю, Тейлз летает как алкоголик, но как ни странно на скоростных секциях за Соника я не ощущал большого дискомфорта да и он пожалуй самый играбельный персонаж из всех. Что там с Сильвером? Это Наклз скрещённый с Тейлзом. Литает на расстояние 1-го метра, пьяный и 1-номиллиметровые руки. Если бы Sega не поторопилась это могла бы быть лучшая игра в серии, но не судьба. Expand

Most of theThe art music and visuals and like 2 levels of this game are good but the rest of the game is just hot trash like it’s really bad. Most of the levels just have you running around towns talking to NPC’s and figuring out how to PLAY A LEVEL. The game has countless glitches and it’s just a broken mess… 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
