I realize that Sonic Mega Collection and Sonic Gems and Sonic Heroes have come out multi-platform, but Sonic Adventures were released on Gamecube, and Shadow the Hedgehog has just come out on Nintendo's box. Also, the former rival is home to the real Sonic games: Sonic Advance 1, 2, and 3 on the Game Boy Advance.
It's true, that Sonic belongs in 2D. The sense of speed, of gravity-defying, dizzying velocity is really something that never translates well in 3D. Sonic just doesn't move as fast and doesn't control as well as he does when he's blazing through the 2D worlds that populate his games. Something is always lost in translation. There's no feeling of rocketing through worlds at insane speeds.
Well, the Advance games remedied that, but they didn't quite have the scope and balance of the original sonic games. Yes, they were fast, but they were also ... kind of small feeling. They felt like portable versions of sonic games. They were good, but I always preferred the old-school Sonic games as the real achievements.
Well, Nintendo has a new portable out, with a lot more power, and so it was just a matter of time before Sega would bring the Hedgehog over. How does Sonic Rush make out? Well, let me just say this: I might have a new favorite Sonic game. And if not, it's very close.
Sonic knocks the Blue Hedgehog kicking and screaming into a new handheld glory.Read more ›
Sonic the hedgehog still has the appearance of a character created by a focus group but his latest adventure is an exceptionally good game. The once mighty Sega is barely limping along at this point but they still manage to release high quality games and Sonic Rush is a highly polished game that accomplishes one neat trick which is to synchronize both screens so Sonic can seamlessly move from one to the other without disorienting the player. The effect creates a uniquely tall viewing area that gives players a better look at alternative paths. To solve the enemy collision problem the game adds a turbo button so that Sonic can punch right through enemies without losing rings. The turbo button runs out over time but can be recharged by performing stunts. There are still times when the player will likely need to scout an area before completing it in order to figure out where the turbo button needs to be pressed.
The boss battles are perhaps the most visually stunning parts of the game and also the least fun.Read more ›
