    A solid new iteration in Sonic's series, with fun and frantic gameplay even if we would have liked more playable characters, while the new Avatars feature left us quite unimpressed.

    For the first time in years, I actually enjoyed and looked forward to going back to a Sonic game and will continue to hunt those red star rings for a while yet. But the main USP of the avatars let the side down. I really hope Sonic Team continue with the duel Sonic crossover games as they seem to be providing them with their best output in years.

    Sonic Mania is undoubtedly a tighter, more exceptional experience; Sega should really allow that team to design the levels for the next 3D release! But if you missed the 3D Sonic experience and can tolerate some bland level design and roughness, Forces is certainly a worthwhile follow-up to Generations – especially for the reduced asking price.

    Sonic Forces is a short and easy videogame, which also has a rude and imprecise control. In my opinion, nowadays there are many better alternatives than Sonic Forces on the market but it is enjoyable for kids and for all sonic fans.

    Forces continues the trend of Modern Sonic games being very average and not even an injection boost like Classic Sonic or the new customisable Avatar character can save this from being average at best.

    Sonic Forces is a mixed bag, but the bad outweighs the good. Its few bright spots - mostly in the form of classic Sonic - get dimmed by the muddled mess of the weaker elements, and the lack of content doesn't help. The game's biggest achievement is the reminder of old school Sonic's superior gameplay.

    Sonic Forces may not be the worst Sonic game ever made, but it’s close, and I don’t think the speedy blue hedgehog has many more chances to impress before gamers like myself lose all hope of him returning to his former glory.

    this game is awesome
    and follows the boost formula perfectly from unleashed and generations and colors
    if you really enjoy playing the previous boost games i recommend you to play this one as well

    dont care about the biased ratings it doesn't make any sense that they gave colors and generations such good ratings while forces is getting more hate than positive ratings
    forces is a mix of an improved sonic colors and generations

The story is good (although a little cheesy at times), and dressing up the avatars is surprisingly fun. The stages are nice but a bit short, they get a bit longer as the game progresses. Solid game just wish it was longer! Expand

    Saying that Forces has a mixed reception is an understatement, but I really enjoyed Forces regardless. The graphics are good, the music isSaying that Forces has a mixed reception is an understatement, but I really enjoyed Forces regardless. The graphics are good, the music is good, you have the ability to create your own OC, which is pretty cool, and the Avatar gameplay is fresh, along with a good story. But the issues come from automated Modern Sonic stages, short levels, Classic Sonic physics are off, and level design overall. But Forces is still pretty cool, and definitely worth the purchase.
