A New Sonic a New Story
On a quest for world domination Sonic nemesis Dr. Eggman has managed to steal the chaos emeralds once again and this time drained them of their power. As a result not only has the Earth split into distinct sections, so has Sonic. Now he is two beings. During the day he is the usual speed-addicted hedgehog players will remember, but at night he becomes Sonic the Werehog. In either form it is the player's ultimate goal to find the missing chaos emeralds and return them to their proper place in order to set the world and Sonic himself, back the way he should be.

Gameplay: The Two Sides of Sonic
Like nearly all Sonic games, Sonic Unleashed is platform-based. The game combines the feel of 2D side-scrolling that fans of the Sonic series love, with sharp 3D graphics, and throws in an over the back third-person perspective reminiscent of FPS gameplay for good measure. And just as in earlier games, as players race through and explore the expansive world before them, using auto lock to hone in on enemies and areas of interest, they will rely on the power they gain from the rings they collect for a variety of things, but with the new twist of Sonic's split personality, things are a little bit different.

Playing during the day, as you race across the world in the form of Sonic, speed is the main goal. Collecting rings fills you with 'Ring Energy,' which not only provides extra life, but also the advantage of 'Sonic Boost.' With this players can travel at speeds that approximate 300 MPH. In addition, Sonic Unleashed introduces two new features: the 'Speed Drift' and the 'Quick Step'. Speed Drifting is similar to drifting in racing games, allowing players to slide around corners at high speeds, while Quick Stepping is a sidestepping maneuver allowing Sonic to avoid enemies with quick steps to either side. Both keep you moving as fast as possible, so you can get as many rings as possible, which again keeps you moving as fast as possible.

As night falls and Sonic assumes his Werehog form the rings provide a different kind of power more suited to his more menacing appearance. Much slower, but also much more powerful, the Werehog relies on the rings to provide life as well as strength to shield himself from the attacks of enemies. This is necessary because Werehog gameplay, although based in platforming, incorporates significant levels of combat as well. Red orbs gathered as enemies are defeated allow the player to unlock additional combo moves that will supplement the hack and slash and arm stretching abilities that the Werehog always possesses. Whether Hedgehog or Werehog, no matter which form players prefer they will get ample opportunity to explore the two sides of Sonic since each area in the game contains both night and day segments where each form must be played.

Key Game Features:

  • Sonic’s World Transformed - Sonic maintains his high-speed abilities during the day, but at night he is transformed into a mysterious dark form with incredible never-before-seen abilities including 3D-action brawling and amazing agility.
  • Tight Navigation and Speed Control - Players accelerate to super speed with ‘Sonic Boost’ by collecting rings to increase Sonic’s ‘Ring Energy.’ Using ‘Quick Step,’ players will quickly move left or right to avoid obstacles instantly. Additionally, ‘Speed Drift’ allows players to rocket through turns without slowing down.
  • Powerful New Engine and Cinematic Graphics - With its new proprietary “Hedgehog Engine,” Sonic Unleashed enhances the classic 2D perspective with mind-blowing 3D stages. Other next-gen technology capabilities include global illumination, grid computing, continuous data streaming and an intricate path finding system.
  • Enhanced and Expanded Environments - Many unique and fascinating continents offer the player an opportunity to save the world in a dynamic, high-speed experience. In addition to exploring exciting unlockable areas, players dash through up to nine locations resembling real-life destinations including the Great Wall of China, Arctic Pole glaciers and many more.
Whether it's the updated graphics that retain the side-scrolling feel of classic games in the Sonic franchise, an expansive world to race through and explore or the multiple and new ways to play, Sonic Unleashed offers something for players of any age or level of ability.

I have to start off by saying Sonic unleashed is what many have been waiting for in a Sonic game, platforming mixed with speed and cool new things with less focus on side characters like Shadow and whatnot. I was both excited and dreading the release since the last few 3D games have been disappointing with gameplay and the number of glitches I encountered (specifically the Next Gen Sonic the Hedgehog game and Shadow the Hedgehog).

The game is fast fun and definitely polished, there's no glitches or agonizing load times seen in the next gen Sonic the Hedgehog, they took out the serious story with realistic looking characters and replaced the story with one of more fantasy with more fitting cartoonish characters. The levels go flawlessly from the behind the back running to 2D style running and they've added a few moves like drifting, boosting and quick dashing and thankfully removed the repetitive talking in the levels. The werehog was a big thing I feared from the start but it turns out it's like a less violant God of War (Literally down to the way he attacks, opens doors and finishes off enemies) and it still manages to be fun, though not as fast but it's okay and I'll say why later. You have to level Sonic and the Werehog up separately, though not to the extent of Sonic and the Secret Rings where you're running horribly slow, you go from fast to mach ten.

The game is worth every penny.

Graphically it is mind blowing. The gameplay is awesome for the Sonic levels and surprisingly good for the werehog. The replay value is enormous and the quality of the game overall is through the roof : great soundtrack and CG etc ...

If you love Sonic or not, this is the game you must buy.

I don't really play games like this. I mostly enjoy shooters; Left 4 Dead and Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 being my favorites so far on the Xbox 360. My girlfriend on the other hand, isn't all that into them. We downloaded the original Sonic, and she's been playing it like crazy ever since. She's beaten it several times and gotten all the achievements.
So being the wonderful boyfriend that I am, when I heard that a full-blown new Sonic game was coming out, I bought it for her.
Verdict: She loves it.
First off, the game is stunning to watch. The "daytime" scenes are easily the high point, as fun to watch as they are to play. And believe me, I've spent plenty of time hanging in the same room, absently watching her play. Sega has finally made it possible to do what everyone always wanted to do in a Sonic game: Go really really really fast, and keep on going.
The nighttime Werehog scenes are more plodding and combat-based, and although they don't overload your senses quite like the daytime scenes, they provide a needed contrast to the overall pacing, and are fun in their own right.
Only a few complaints:
The controls could be a little more responsive. They're not horrible, but sometimes you could just swear you hit that jump button in time as you watch Sonic fall, shrieking to his death.
Also, the life system is unnecessary. This is a hard game, but only truly frustrating when you lose all your lives at the end of a level and have to start back at the beginning. Who hasn't figured out that getting your progress bumped way back isn't any fun? Apparently, Sega.
Oh well, still a very fun game that requires a lot of perseverance from time to time. Highly recommended for fans of the originals.

I had pre-ordered this game in excited anticipation of its release after seeing a few previews online. I remembered those good times as a kid playing with my buddy on his sega and just BLASTING through levels and having a ton of fun. Having played a few of the newer Sonic games, I have been somewhat disappointed in the gameplay for different reasons. Sonic Unleased however has eliminated many of the problems of past games and brought back the feel of the old with some new twists.

1. The daytime levels are great! They are truly meant to be taken at breakneck speed as Sonic should be played, and with the new sonic boost feature, you really can do that. The boost is generated by collecting rings, and as you boost, you attract rings close by like you did in past games by grabbing the magnetic bubble shield. Hit an enemy while boosting and BAM they go flying and are destroyed. And if you play it right, you can pretty much boost at incredible speed through pretty much the whole level. There are a few VERY tight turns, which Sonic has a new feature for called the "sonic drift" where like a car, he slides to take the corner more tightly, but still at high speed. The only downside I find to the daytime levels are two things. One, that with the boost, you go SO FAST that sometimes you miss seeing the proper path and miss the jump you needed to take. This is fixed by taking the level once through at a slightly slower pace, so not a big problem. Two is the tricks. Sonic will go flying off a ramp and a three button combp will appear, hit it right and you will get a bonus, wrong, you don't. As you progress in the game the time you have to hit the combo shortens and becomes very tough to hit in the time given. Again, simply solvable by learning the buttons used better.
