    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.

    That's a great game of Sonic. The Avatar stage works well and has a nice story. But is not so good like Unleashed, but still a great game.

    Sonic Forces attempts to go new on ideas on story and gameplay without improving what might have been the most anticipated game on the market.Sonic Forces attempts to go new on ideas on story and gameplay without improving what might have been the most anticipated game on the market. To be completely fair, this was saved from actually being rushed to the market so I'll give it a chance to give it the score it deserves. There's no other way I can describe Sonic Forces without taking up a huge chunk of my time so I'm just going to call it the newest Windows Vista of the franchise. It's so addicting that you could possibly find a way to play to the end and end up loving it, but, like Windows Vista, it's not safe from the flaws it receives. I'm sure we'll get a better Sonic game one day, but for now we have to get used to what they gave us. Expand

    Sonic Forces
    A bit half-baked
    Sonic forces is a 3d meets 2d sonic game where you set out to save the world from dr eggman and the new hedgehog in town infinite
    your goal is to run through the games 30 stages and reclaim the world for team sonic...
    only problem is sonic can’t do it alone, he needs your help after he’s snatched up…
    A rookie is called in to aid to sonic..
    And that rookie is you...
    You create your own character out of pretty limited choices and you set out to reclaim territories and help team sonic on different missions…
    There are sos missions where you play as other created characters for rewards, there are bonus missions, and again 30 regular missions…
    Sonic forces is a really enjoyable and fun game…
    unfortunately this is an extremely casual sonic game as well, geared more towards children than sonic vets…
    It has the typical things from the sonic formula... rings counting as your health... running really fast and dashing through enemies…
    but failing is practically impossible…
    My issue with sonic mania was that I felt it wasn’t casual enough as levels were way too long to go off of a life system… and sonic forces goes the complete opposite of having extremely short levels with infinite lives.. if you lose your rings its back to the checkpoint…
    This is really just a score chasing game…
    the level design is great, the worlds is beautiful, there’s decent music… but the best feeling levels are over before they even feel like they begin.. making it hard for any stage here to be memorable…
    but this 2 and a half hour long campaign does mix things up as it switches through your character, regular sonic, and classic sonic… all 3 handling differently…
    With classic sonic stages giving you a little more challenge, but still not much..
    With your character you’re able to use different weapons you unlock as you play to shoot enemies all with their own perks in level like invincibility, or turning enemies into ice cubes giving you coins...
    All of this to try and obtain a levels s rank which will get you more clothing items to customize your character, as will completing the games different challenges… giving the player reason to go back and play these levels…
    But being so easy… hardly any timing here, which is that makes 3d sonic games so addicting.. And it’s completely missing...
    This game is really just shoot enemies while sonic runs forward... ocassionally take down a boss and repeat..
    I never felt engaged…
    And while it doesn’t feel like a real sonic game, and there’s hardly challenge or addictive qualities...
    I enjoyed my time with this game... Its fun…
    This is a very decent baby’s first sonic game…
    I Give Sonic Forces
    a 6.5/10
