Game Revolution: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood Review

Game Revolution writes: "It usually takes a couple of years before Sonic comes out with its Mario rip-off reinterpretation, and Sonic usually gets the short end of the stick: Super Mario 64 Sonic Adventure, Super Mario Kart Sonic R, Mario Party Sonic Shuffle. But it's taken more than a decade for the hedgehog to step into the unlikely genre of the turn-based JRPG, where the comparison between Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - which surprised its jump-happy audience in 1996 on the Super Nintendo with its colorful, whimsical, isometric interpretation of the Mario world - cannot be made more obvious. Both try to reassemble the platforming antics of their titular heroes into an HP-MP, leveling-up, item-collecting romp, and with the unexpected developer BioWare of Star Wars: KOTOR and Mass Effect fame, the blue hedgehog nearly stands toe to toe with the red plumber."
