I bought this game for my girlfriend,
This review is from: Sonic Unleashed - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
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.
