Sonic Review - 1up

From the Review : "From a technical standpoint, Sonic the Hedgehog doesn't really impress. A few areas look excellent, but the majority of stages appear vaguely last gen, with only slightly enhanced textures and massive amounts of motion blur. When giant rock formations crumble into the ocean with nary a splash, it simply seems lazy. Thankfully, most of these graphics are whipping past you at breakneck speed, so you don't miss the details too terribly. In fact, a handful of new "mach speed" stages that distill the Sonic experience to its purest form -- running, jumping, and dodging -- will help you recall why we all cared about Sonic in the first place. If only the developers had focused on delivering a simple, fun experience rather than trying to create something far beyond their reach."

Score: 5.5 (scale: 1-10) (Sonic the Hedgehog, Xbox 360) 5.5/10

far beyond their reach
Makes sense. Sonic should go back to it 2d on the rails gameplay. He just doesn't stand a chance as a 3d platformer sadly to say
