    Sonic is unleashing the beast in this speedy new action-platformer, with a new ability to turn into a were-hedgehog as he fights to save the world once more. Is it as truly cringe-worthy as it sounds, or is Unleashed a surprise success? Find out what we think within!

    :duh:

    Unsurprising. I enjoyed Sonic Adventure back on the Dreamcast, but that was the last decent one.

    Why can't they just make it about running really fast, collecting rings and rolling into the occasional enemy?

    I say bring it back to a 2.5D style.

    The real Sonic bits actually looked quite fun... but the were-flop looked rubbish

    Sonic should have stayed in the 2D side scrolling land, where it belongs.

    Absolutely.

    Sega, if you're listening, make the next major Sonic title a side scrolling 2.5D adventure with stonking HD graphics, massive levels and huge amounts of replayability and content. And no voice acting, rubbish story nonsense or annoying new "cute" characters - just lots and lots of the blue wonder tearing up the screen.

    I'd buy that for a dollar.

    Ain't that the truth!

    Have to say, they should do what has been done with Wipeout. SONIC HD! Just a little modernising and leave it at that.

    The thing about 6 year olds though is they don't know any better. Not that there are all that many brilliant childrens games out there for them to judge this against.

    There are plenty. Put your kid on Beyond Good and Evil or Lego Star Wars instead. ;)

    Odlly enough reviews are giving the Wii version slightly higher marks, but the Wii version supposedly has even more Were-Sonic levels than the 360/PS3 version. I have been a Sonic fan for a long time and may give this a rent. As much as reviewers knock a game there are those few that some of just truley enjoy despite what we're told. Ya'll will think I am crazy but I enjoyed Sonic on 360 despite it's bad camera. I love the Sonic Adventure series so when it came to 360 I was happy just to even play it again. I never gave The Secret Rings a try.

    I did think of Lego Star Wars (but I didn't want to rebut my own point), however does a 6yo actually have the capacity to work through BG&E? I would get that for a 9yo :p

    My fiance can start a new game, and by the time she has completed Emerald Hill Zone, Act 1, she has 5 of the Choas Emeralds and 18 spare lives. A record I doubt few people would be able to beat.
