Same Fun Sonic with More Glitches

by Red on 1/17/2008

If you like the old Sonics, you'll like this one. The gameplay is the same & it is entertaining. With that being said, the graphics are not improved at all. There are a few video sequences that utilize the capabilities of the ps3, but not the game itself. Also, there are a ton of glitches in this game. Sonic frequently gets stuck when against objects, etc. The game loads each new scene extremely slow, also. Read More

Product Overview

When video game icon Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the Sega Genesis in 1991, he shook up the action-platform genre with his signature speed and rebellious attitude. More than 44 million units later, Sonic celebrates his 15th anniversary and blazes his way onto the next generation consoles for an epic adventure designed to deliver the most intense sensation of speed experienced to date.

The game is set in Soleanna, the beautiful city of water. In his first adventure set in the human world, Sonic meets a beautiful princess named Elise, whom he quickly befriends, but Princess Elise is abducted by none other than the calculating Dr. Eggman who is working under dark and sinister motives, to destroy this special kingdom of hers. In order to restore safety and serenity, Sonic must maneuver his way through a series of adventures and challenges where he will encounter and interact with a bevy of allies and enemies, and ultimately go head to head against the menacing doctor to thwart his malicious plans. Along the way, Sonic encounters a mysterious character named Silver. Blocking him with unique supernatural powers, even the Blue dude with 'tude will find it difficult to out-maneuver the enigmatic Silver! As Sonic speeds through the huge kingdom, the mysteries unravel.

Sonic The Hedgehog melds top-tier animation production values with next generation art, physics and game design to create the most intense, high velocity Sonic adventure yet!
