What could be stranger than a Sonic RPG? A Sonic RPG developed by Bioware, a Western company. Nevertheless, it's here, and if the majority of the public can be believed, it's Sonic's last chance to show promise before he ends up in the dumpster. But in reality, things are never so black and white, and Sonic's success is no different. More a Japanese RPG than a Western one, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood manages to do a few things right, a few things wrong, and more than a few in between.
