Vairety Reviews Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Review by Leigh Alexander:

"Few videogame mascots have endured as tenaciously - or as dubiously - as the once-proud Sonic the Hedgehog. Unlike Nintendo's Super Mario, to whom Sega's speedy blue anthropomorphic hedgehog was a worthy rival in the early '90s, Sonic has largely failed to adapt with the times. With "Sonic Chronicles," Sega makes the somewhat bizarre choice of abandoning high-speed action and putting Sonic in the hands of role-playing games developer Bioware, best known for detail-intensive, character-driven epics like "Mass Effect." The result is surprisingly fun and competent, though far from the shot of adrenaline the franchise needs to return to its former glory."

The story is too old to be commented.
